WOW... Training for the first time since the meet on Saturday and the struggle is real!
Small weights, high reps, and I haven’t felt weaker. .
Legs and chest felt solid to be expected, but the rest took me back to my early years of body building where your muscles sometimes are struggling to feel a pump... .
Time to rebuild!
Final Meet for the year!! Landed 8 out of 9 attempts.
Missed the final bench attempt due to a time out, took my T-shirt off due to the high muggy conditions back stage and ran out of time putting it back on.
As much as it broke me I pushed on and crushed each deadlift attempt... Big thank you to my coach @jacobschepis_jps and the team from @jpshealth_fitness, for all of your mentoring, coaching and composure yesterday and this year, your support has been priceless... And thank you to @neetsy76 for always being there, along with My friends @mr_hay_87, Siuta, Venessa, And Ronnie for coming along and showing their support... Squat -
65kg, 70kg, 75kg (Pb)(timed out)
112.5kg, 132.5kg, 140kg (PB) .
Now to take a year off Powerlifting, it’s back to bodybuilding, time to grow my physique again, and hit the bodybuilding stage in Sept 2019... We can’t let small missed lifts define who we are, despite how long we prepare for them, rather we keep punching forward!
It’s always exciting when your peak week is running smooth. .
Happy with everything today as tough as it was.
As I head into my final Meet for the year, what an incredible year of growth it’s been both personally in my lifting and professionally in my career. .
2 more training days, then it’s rest and show time, ready to hit all 9 lifts!! .

A year ago I would never have dreamed of being able to squat 75kg for 1 rep let alone 5 Reps with a pause. -
It’s amazing how much I’ve been able to achieve in lifting in this year alone by investing in a coach, and what I’ve learnt in terms of set up and execution over all. -

Much love Guys ❤️
The hardest part?! Nailing the “arch”... Truth is I’ve got the strength for the bigger weights, but the arch adds greater potential and something I’m trying to perfect each session.
@jacobschepis_jps this was 52.5kg x 5. I’ve turned my feet out more which helped me anchor my shoulders, thoughts now??
