Close grip bench today 4x5 at 275lbs felt really good and even though my elbow wasn’t feeling the greatest it felt way better than anything did on Tuesday so I’m happy!! I feel completely reinvigorated now that I’m training for the Record Breakers meet!! Thanks @ryanstills_powerlifter for all your help and advice today and @vegangaintrain great lifting with you today man!!

Ah much better day today, started off with 6x1 squats at 7rpe which felt really good! I was playing around with my hand position to find more tightness in my back and lats and alleviate some of the tendinitis I’ve been having as a result of my squats. This wasn’t the best rep but the last two sets felt and looked much better than they have been so I felt really good about it. Anyway I followed squats up with deficits at 405lbs for 3x5 and then stiff legs 3x10 and honestly I’m completely exhausted right now 😂😵 awesome workout and another awesome day training with the whole crew at @strength_union so great to have such an amazing community of lifters around me that drive me to get better everyday!!!

Well today was rough, it was a chest/bench day and on my first set I started getting pain/tendonitis in my elbow and it just got progressively worse as the workout went on, you can see from my face at the end how happy I was about it 😂 oh well I still finished everything on my program and even tho it hurt and it sucked, I’m glad I stuck it out and finished the workout. It’s not always a good idea to push through pain but in this instance it really wasn’t serious and it wouldn’t of done me any good to quit or give up. I’ve got 16 weeks now to figure this out. I’ve got a goal and I’m the only one that decides whether or not I accomplish it.
Don’t let the thief, the enemy of your soul steal from you. He does this by tricking us into thinking what he offers is better than what Jesus offers. Don’t take the bait. Your life matters, you cost to much! #staylitmonday#toolit2quit#toolittoquit#lityouth

It feels great to back back in @chaoticwrestling and finally after all these years, I'm starting to build momentum. #TooLit2Quit#SelfMade#CollarXElbow @collarxelbow #WWE#ROH#NXT#NJPW
Big Squat Sunday 3x3 at 395lbs felt pretty good, it was REALLY hot and I had a lot going on but I was able to focus in and hit some good weight and clean reps so I’m happy!! It was so awesome having my buddies @idahopotato_farmer and @christbeard come out and lift today it was great seeing you guys!!! And @littlebirdwithaprettymouth it was great having you out to the gym for the first time!! Looking forward to lifting with you again!!!

Oh front squats 😅😵 3x8 at 225lbs between the heat and how much I suck at front squats these were super tough lol but I’m honestly really enjoying my Friday workouts doing these, it’s more of a mental challenge than a physical one which is awesome!! Another great day at @strength_union feeling very blessed to be where I am doing what I love!!!
Close grip bench today, kind of a rough one. The heat was kicking everyone’s butt! I started out feeling pretty good but dropped the weight down because I was getting some muscle cramps in my lower back and I felt like I wasn’t matching my rpe well enough. Huge thanks to @kayliebaby_ifbbpro for helping me through it and for all your tips and advice, I always appreciate it!!!
