Only you know what’s inside you and only you are capable of bringing that out and believing in it and respecting it.
Yesterday~ 290lbs for 8 reps Pr~~~ Was not expecting this. Hitting this for 3-4 reps would have been Pr. Especially because this was my last set. Squat sesh was: 290lbs of 1x5, 1x6, 1x5, 1x8
Second vid: Then I hit a Pr on Romanians~ 315lbs for 8 reps. That’s an increase of 3 reps
Last vid: My second set of squats, just to show how it may look like I don’t got much more in me (as that set looked hard) but when you want it ... nothing is going to stop you ... you have so much more within you. .
2019 Australian Weightlifting Championships done and dusted! 🏋🏼♂️
Going 4/6 on the day, hitting 110kg & 115kg in the snatch and 132kg & 136kg for clean and jerk. Giving me an overall 7kg pb onto my total of 251kg!
As always there is so much work done behind the scenes to prepare both physically and mentally heading in to competition
Firstly cannot extend my gratitude enough to @marriedtomymacros and @benborgmtmm for executing my nutrition plan to a T leading up to and all the way through the day. Being well fuelled and nailing the weigh-in 👌
Next up a shoutout to @irontribeweightlifting and coach @ackes for the helping hand to fine tune and prime me heading out to the platform for each lift. Special mention to @sam_mcc28 for all the calculated decisions in between lifts and the brains on the day 👏
Lastly an extended thank you to all those that sent their encouragement and well wishes and especially those that came from interstate and overseas to show your support, cheer and be apart of the experience! It’s just not the same without you all

I love them because the make me see the power and strength in me. Some of them intimidate me.
I like that.
It’s a visual affirmation.
I spent too many years looking at photos of myself scrutinizing, criticizing....wasting time. The brain behind the lens is changing. If I can use this platform for anything it’s for positivity. I want girls and women to see their power and be in awe of themselves.
