Right wrist feels a littl better than it did yesterday. Back feels great. Sliced the tip of my L ring finger last night so I tried wrapping it up so it didn’t bleed everywhere 🤷🏻♀️ @smgpowerlifting@russeyohiggins

2 years ago I started this journey. 2 years ago, I was obese! I knew I needed to make a change... My favorite quote is, “You will only change when the pain of remaining the same is greater than the pain of changing” Something happen 2 years ago that made it so I couldn’t remain the same. Something happen that triggered the end of my yo-yo ing with my weight. I know I will never be obese again. We are all capable of making that decision, flipping the switch. But, will you? Follow me as I will show you what it takes to get these gains. No unreal #2weektransformation . Just genuine HARD WORK! Let’s get it 📈📈

🔥When it comes to squatting heavy weight, having proper breathing technique can be helpful in stabilizing the body.
You don't want all your air to be in the chest area.
You want to think about expanding your whole body like a balloon.... not just your stomach or diaphragm. You don't want just a big belly.
After you take in your air, you want to Brace as if you are about to take a big 💩.
If you are struggling with bracing after the big breath.
Try pushing your tounge on the roof of your mouth. It is a neat trick I learned after watching @biolayne talk about proper bracing.
Keep that tightness throughout the entire rep.
You can start exhaling as you come up, but that will vary depending on the individual.
Just be aware when breathing like this.
If you are new, don't hold your breath or the brace for too long because it does elevate your blood pressure.
So you might feel a bit dizzy after a set.
It will require a bit of practice.
I recommend trying it out without any weight on your back first.
Using a belt can help reinforce the idea of pushing out instead of sucking in.
❤️Hope you find this helpful!🙏
Share this with someone who can use the help to feel stronger in their squats. 😄
Afterwork my way.
I am a skwatoholic. 😆
Gött att rensa hjärnan efter en arbetsvecka.
Pausböj upp till man nästan skiter skiter ner sig sen så många reps man har i sig på 100.
Det bidde 3st idag.
Veckan börjar bra. 🤗 #tantVaiketränar#skwat#avgångsexorcism

Five days out until I travel down to Oregon for my second powerlifting meet. High key incredibly nervous, but also eager to see my progress since my first meet.
===> 303 x1 <===
Here’s to the start of peak week, figuring out my openers and trying not to get too much in my head! 😬
Squats 3x8 220/214/209.
Bench 3x8 107/107/105.
4th time trying to post this bc insta is being dumb af.
My right wrist & thumb are getting sharp/shooting pain with any weighted extension, so had to not tuck my thumb for squats, felt weird. Hoping it goes away in a couple days. Had my hip rotation worked on yesterday, and my back feels the best today that it has in forever. @smgpowerlifting@russeyohiggins

I've no idea what I was doing that last rep.
Pro tip: wear a gray top to make it look like you worked harder.
Feeling blessed to ha e had such a great weekend. Good food, good fun, good vibes. Went kuh-yaking with @mynamejess____ and relaxed a bit.
Hit some skwaaats Saturday, too. 450 at the top.
Have a great weekend guys!
Oh boy. This leg day has one goal: a new PR. @rnelson79 and I discussed our goal, how fast we were going to advance in weight to prevent fatigue, and how to warmup our joins/open our hips the night prior. Going up in weight, seeking those new milestones, and achieving goals takes a lot of determination and focus. (Having a good spotter helps too)... About two months ago, I hit a PR for squats at 465lbs, but I was heavier than I am now (243lbs). Today, I weighed in at 235lbs, and I beat that PR. I’m pretty happy getting 475lbs today, and I have to thank @rnelson79 for keeping my chest up during the repetition.
Training is finally coming together and is progressing so much! 80kgx4 on squats @ zoom, 105kgx1 paused deadlift with nice lockout (finally I am no longer disabled on lockouts lmao) 90kgx6 deadlifts (with a bad ripped callous) and 40kgx8 on Larsen presses
Here's a video of my top set 195x6 rpe 8. Nice low stress week before ramping it up again next week. In the past I haven't recorded my squats or bench often mostly because I don't have an ideal place to set up my phone, but fuck it I need to check my form.

The number isn’t all that impressive but due to chronic back pain in the past I’ve stayed away from squatting since it irritated my back. After getting into powerlifting I finally started paying more attention to my back and how to rehab it. Can’t tell you the last time I put over 400lbs on my back but goddamn it felt good to hit some box squats with no pain. Looking forward to getting into full power after my next meet and making squats a strength rather then a weakness. @bigmafs#powerlifting#fullpower#squats#skwat#skwaaats#uspapowerlifting

As always my last set always seems to be my best sets 🙃
Super pleased with how my squats have progressed this cycle.
A couple technique adjustments and being extremely mindful of my positioning has been a huge win!!
Harnessing all of @leahcasciano energy for all the squat power in deezzzz @savage_barbell SHORTIESSSS 💚🙊
New week = new goals to make and actually accomplish! It’s easy to get side tracked/thrown off when challenges come your way and make you feel discouraged or “give up” and want to start over again tomorrow. Stop pushing your goals off and make that change for yourself today🗣Whether it being you slowly getting back into the gym or cutting back on something you can’t resist (🍔🍕🍫🍻)it’s still better than not trying at all! You’ll thank yourself later💙
If you’re interested in training one on one with me DM me!📥 I’m more than happy to help you reach your goals and to feel confident in your skin🦋
