Today was a day of accessories and trying new things. Did some solid sets of overhead press. Then I decided to try the clean. I've done it a few times, but I never felt confident about the movement. I still don't. It need so much work. I will probably stick to 135 and do sets of 10 once or twice a week to buildup my technique. The benefits of a perfect clean will definitely translate into increased weight in the powerlifting moves. Excited to see how I'll progress in the coming weeks. Close Stance High Bar Squats 135 - 1×20 Overhead Press 95 - 1×8 115 - 2×5 135 - 5×3 95 - 5×10 Olympic Clean 95 - 1×5 135 - 1×5 185 - 3×3; all sets recorded 135 - 1×10 Power Rows 135 - 3×20 #powerlifting#bodybuilding#strengthtraining#strivingtobebetter#norest#repsfordays#repsforlove#shoulderpress#clean#beltless#raw#gripstrength#accessories#lightweight#progress#rows#armylife#armylifting#medic#gainz#grindin
A causal morning play for Elijah . Mummy had a run in with a dentist this week so we’ve been a bit quite. Mummy was supposed to be on bed rest... Elijah doesn’t know what that means... end of story‼️ .

This weekend is set to be a scorcher but as always our Marine Debris Team will be out working to combat marine pollution. Both Mullaloo and Rockingham are getting a little TLC and we would really love your help. Due to extreme temperatures please bring water in a reusable water bottle and sunsmart clothing. Both events will kick off a little earlier at 8am to try and beat the heat. See you there! #fortheoceans#norest#hotsummer
The beauty about competing is that you are preparing, working hard for months and putting it all out on the mats against the risk of losing. Excuses are for those who are weak enough to admit they lost. Lost in the quarterfinals to a better strategy than mine and did not manage to medal at the Euros this year. Moving forward hungrier and more motivated than ever. Thanks to everyone who supported me through my prep. All coaches and training partners at @carlsongracielondon, @faixa_preta_official for making this trip possible, @revele_official for the protection, @yogaforbjj for the yoga routines that helped my sore body, Asaf Sitbon for the S&C killer sessions and @thomas.magnitis13 for the endless morning drills that made my game sharper. 🔥 #competitor#competition#europeans#bjj#brazilianjiujitsu#norest#movingforward#faixapretateam#lisbon 📸by @maggieleft
I had my doubts... . Before I signing up for a 30 minute workouts, I didn’t believe they could work. I was wasting an hour to a hour & half at the gym moving from machine to machine. I had results but it wasn’t efficient. Those 30 minute workouts kicked my butt, because the rest time was limited. NOW we have 20 minute workouts with NO REST! Once again, I had my doubts when starting this program, but @shaunt proved me wrong again. Balance, strength, endurance, agility, coordination, & speed are all things that are being challenged in my 20 minute. The key word is challenged, it’s not easy and I have to really push myself mentally. If you want change you need to be challenged everyday whether it be mentally, emotionally, physically, or professionally. Learn to challenge yourself, because you won’t regret it.
Just going to sit and enjoy my tea for all of 5 mins before Jasper wakes up again 😭 we are going through such a tough time with naps at the moment. I’m thinking it might be the 18 month sleep regression arriving early but whatever it is gone are the days when I used to get a solid two hours out of him. I’m up and down the stairs like a frigging jack in the box at the moment, still at least it’s a bit of exercise, every cloud and all that! #sleepregressionsucks#sleepregression#lunchnapfail#pleasesleep#mumoftoddler#norest#blogger
