What is your favourite feature of yourself?
Whilst we should love and embrace every part of ourselves I do love my delts... big delts make your waist appear smaller, but make sure you train your legs enough and don’t look like a Doush bag who only trains upper body.
Bench 45kg - 4 x 10
These puppies were moving nice and Smoov 🍑🍑
1st - 92.5kg x 2
2nd - 72.5kg x 5
The shoes make a big difference, feet felt rock solid on the floor, thanks @nikeromaleosclub... they actually helped me sit more upright (as they intend to do as they increase ankle mobility) and my quads were engaging even better, lumber spine even more relaxed.
Back to the drawing board with these babies. The last two comps has been hauntingly similar, with me pbing on the numbers but odeying on slight technique floors which has seen me lose my final attempts on both deadlifting occasions at both 1st and 2nd meets.
The first meet I made a stupid rookie mistake and dropped the bar like a meat head, and the second meet I lost balance upon hip extension at the top and it was 3 red lights.
In today’s practise I’m slowing my speed down, and taming my hip thrust.
It hurts to lose, so I don’t wanna have a repeat in December 🙏
My shoes came 😃😃 If you’ve been following me for a while now you’ll notice that I have a bit of a sneaker fetish but these are a legacy shoe for me and stand for something far bigger than me.
So when one of my all time online business hero’s @garyvee launched his new sneakers I had to get them, not for how they looked but for what the represent. And I paid more than I needed to but oh well. I have them now.
These are called clouds and dirt by K-Swiss, a brand I would’ve otherwise never really looked at.
The dirt stands for the grind, the hustle, getting your hands dirty in the real work. In the soles are images of dirt and clouds in either shoes.
The clouds stands for the dream, what we are working so very hard in the dirt for.
As an entrepreneur this is so primitive to what I do every single day, as I etch 1 day closer and closer to being better and better. I’m happy to admire the horizon from a distance, because I’m aware the prize in entrepreneurship rests in the journey always. Thank you @garyvee for the amazing hustle and content with no sugary BS, just the truth and your alpha kindness. ❤️❤️❤️
Top set 95kg
Not gonna lie I always get a bit nervous for anything 95kg and over.
I have to “psych” myself up. Put on that right tune, breathe and set up tight AF, everything has to feel on point, from set up to execution.

100kg x 4... Hip Thrust
🍑🍑Peach Gainz Bro
Last time I hip thrusted this weight off a bench I did my back in nicely.
Since then I’ve planned my bench selection and set up a lot more carefully, choosing appropriate heights.
Aka - A Bench that sits just below the scaps 👌🏽 Standard gym bench heights may be too high so make sure you measure yourself up against it when thrusting relatively heavy.
1st - LB Squat Pause 87.5kg x 1 (could’ve held this for a second longer)
2nd - LB Squat Pause 70kg x 4 (much better overall)
3rd - Bench 57.5kg x 1 with a 3sec Pause
8 sets of bench today and I already feel dizzy 🤮🤯
1st - 107kg x 1
2nd - 90kg x 3
With volume and intensity slowly decreasing, I’m perfecting on any imperfections.
But suffice to say this has been a great two month prep.
Bring on Sept 16, I’m ready @jacobschepis_jps 🤘🏻🤘🏻
