My journey to strength began with a desire to be skinny and nothing more. However, it led me to powerlifting and stepping into my power in my entire life. ⠀ Super grateful to @laurenbedosky and @livestrong_com for including me in this article along with some other fantastic people and organizations doing amazing things for women's strength. ⠀ And while I didn’t understand how weight training would change my life nor did I think I would be lifting heavy weights (and coaching other women), I’m forever grateful for the role strength training has played in my life. ⠀ While I totally 100% believe in body autonomy, I secretly hope every woman in the world gives strength training a whirl at some point in their lives because I know how transformative and empowering it was for me. ⠀ What was your journey to strength and how has it changed for you over the years?
Less than 59sec Video but 5 months of putting the work and trusting my coach’s program @the_traveling_warrior . . . . In my last meet, I failed my last attempt of 275lb/125kg. AND I fainted 😳 (that’s what happen when you take the phrase “leave it all in the platform” too literally😅) Last Saturday I did that same weight but per REPS without fainting 💅🏻😎. —I can’t wait to see what number I’m going to hit in 5 weeks in my next @uspapower #meet . . . . Thanks again for the support and reminding me that I can do it! @the_traveling_warrior @fitconfidenthappy @bamaburr @thechaddelaney07 . PS: YES I am super extra with my pre deadlift ritual and I love sniffing ammonia 😂... no mom this is not cocaine @maryohanacm 🙄
10/16/18 BW:125 1)225x4 set 1 2)225x4 set 3 3) 155x3 weird slo mo stuff Did three sets of 8s before the 225s. - Look who’s finally hitting depth ... 😒 which is my #1 priority these next 4 weeks but I am cooked. I have a knot in my right erector after bench attempts on Thursday, then my left lower back started CRAMPING while retracting weights ? How??? Couldn’t really do accessories after this LMAO. 🤷🏻♀️ #5weeksout ... or should I not do the meet ...???? - I feel like an old lady
Watching all the raw nats livestreams and seeing everyone’s meet recap posts this weekend has got me feelin some serious FOMO. I can’t wait to get back to consistent training and hopefully hit the platform again for my 4th meet on January 19th in Manasses, VA!!!!! #13.5weeksout _______________________________________________________ PS thanks to @wineverythingmedia for capturing this beaut.
