DEADLIFT || 525x1
It’s been a while since I posted a video but it’s time to get back to it. 525 felt pretty good, especially since I was using a loaner weight belt (mine has disappeared into thin air). Posting regularly can be difficult because it feels repetitive to continually post powerlifting videos. If anyone has a specific type of post they like to see let me know down below!
Currently I am pausing my cut for a couple of weeks, but I will resume cutting after my class ends at the end of June. Going to get below 165 then hop back on the bulking train before the Colorado stage Powerlifting meet in November.
Strength Work Part 1: •
Today’s lifting session!! 🤗 Usually I pick 4-6 full body exercises and complete them in circuits. This is my favorite way to train 😊
If I’m going heavier, I rest in between circuits but if I’m going light, I move through them more quickly. Sticking with @bretcontreras1 rule of thirds principle, I rotate through heavy, med, and light days. Always pushing myself on my reps or weights. •
I’m all about focusing on technique and consistency over time! There are no hacks to being fitter and healthier. You have to put in the work. And lemme tell you, when you put in the work, the results are that much sweeter. And nutrition! No shortcuts there either. Nourish your body, work on your mindset, and feed your soul with things that make you happy. Dream big and every day take one step towards achieving your goals! You got this!! •

In this week’s episode of Cooper’s poverty deadlift, we have two sets of 606 lbs. First set of five, second set of four. @bnaidicz13 with the hype. .
My face is finally clear!
After a terrible week of peeling, itching and redness I'm happy to say that the oily face is back (which is a good sign) and I'm clear and rash free! Drinking plenty of water to keep myself hydrated so this 🤞🏽 doesn't come back.
Day 5, the last day of work for the campers at @lgn_performance (Improved) Sports Performance Training Camp. Multidirectional speed, an introduction to deadlifts and Death by Prowler to wrap up the week!
Off for a much needed massage with the incredible Eriko from Life Ready Warwick 💪🏼 #Repost @lifereadyphysiowarwick

Deadlift day. Good training session! Starting to work on my hook grip🙃. I tried to record my top set block pull of 605x5 but it didn’t record right for some reason. So I’ll settle for a picture so you can see the block height(block height lowers every block pull accessory day in the training cycle). My training log was supposed to be in the last slide but me caveman dont technology good. Will make a follow up post with the training log for this session. #powelifting#deadlift#blockpulls#strengthtraining#chasing650lbs#45lbsaway#hookgriplife
🕛📉 INTERMITTENT FASTING & FAT LOSS.
Intermittent fasting is a dietary strategy where your daily 'eating window' is restricted to a certain length of time - Typically around 8 hours per day. This would mean (for example) you would eat between 12pm and 8pm, and fast Inbetween, but there are many ways in which it can be manipulated.
This strategy has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. So why is it beneficial?
Generally, the main benefits of 'time-restricted eating' when it comes to fat loss are more practically and psychologically grounded, rather than any actual 'increase' in fat loss. Restricting your eating window can reduce the amount of food prep time (and possibly stress) when it comes to their daily food intake. It allows for more infrequent, larger meals, which may practically fit your schedule better. And if you are someone who simply doesn't have an appetite until later in the day - it might work well for you.
However, provided calories are equal, it does NOT promote greater fat loss than a regular eating schedule. It also does not magically mean you can eat more because you fasted for 16 hours. Nor does it make you train hard or stop eating cake. 😂
It's something to consider if it works well with your lifestyle, but remember there is no magic bullet. Calories in must alway be less than calories out for fat loss no matter what time you eat!
Today I *almost* posted this about 5 times. I was so afraid of criticism. (Ok I still am) Because I’m really proud of the muscle definition I see - but here on the ‘gram, it’s much less than some folks. But for me, it represents a goal met. I wanted a little cut between my delts and biceps. I have it! That’s what I actually mentioned when I joined my (first ever) gym about a year ago. So I learned some equipment and some hand weight strength training and I’ve made huge progress in toning 💪🏻😊👍🏻 happy! #toned#strongwomen#gymmotivation#strength#delts#powerhouse#fitness#exercise#strengthtraining#friday#muscleup
Every great change starts with pain. The reason most people change is because of pain. They get to a place or It becomes a time when that pain becomes the prime mover to get them to do the work that’s needed.It doesn’t matter what you need to accomplish. A prime mover will always there to push you. #letswork . #mkithvy
