Every decision I make on a day to day basis is centered around this barbell.
Crazy how something can be the absolute center of your life.. Stay up an extra hour to finish my favorite show? No, I have to go to bed and rest.
Eat the piece of cake my friend baked for me? No. I have to make weight.
Go out on the weekend? No. I don’t need distraction and I have training to attend the next day.
Every decision I come across I have to sit and ask myself will this help me reach my goals or will this set me back?
Sound crazy?? Well that’s because it is. You have to be a little crazy to sacrifice everything for something.
It gets tough, it gets boring, it gets hard..but I literally wouldn’t have it any other way.

Some cri$py boiz.
Snatch waves at 85, 88, 91 (200lbs)
Didn't really like getting up this morning but eventually dragged my ass to the gym albeit a bit to late to finish the entire work out.
Only did my barbell work starting off with some benching at 116kgx4 122kgx3 and 129kg 2x2+ where I got 3 reps which moved pretty nice.
Then I got a nice PR in my Spoto presses with 10 reps at 95kg on my last set of 4x6+ which is shown in the 2nd video. Did the same on my Incline bench press at 83kg for 4x6+ and 10 reps on the final set for PR.

Form check! Let's talk about neutral spine and eye gaze for Deadlifts - really, any deadlift (hex bar, conventional, Romanian, etc.)
When people perform a deadlift, they tend to want to watch themselves in the mirror to "check form". When, in reality this puts their body into the incorrect form. By looking up at the mirror, it lifts your head and upper spine up (and out of neutral spine) and as a result, many peoples lower back will arch. This will make your back HURT by pulling that heavy weight with your back arched strangely. .
Instead, keep your eye gaze downward at the floor in front of you (swipe to see photo) . It will help keep your head in line with your spine and consequently keep your spine in a neutral line.
Video your deadlift and do a form check! I never used to and I wish I would have! I did it wrong for so long because I just did it how I saw everyone else at the gym doing it. .
И снова тяга с 8см плинтов. До 240кг тянул в замок, затем в лямках. Без ремня дошёл до 260кг, дальше одел ремень. В нем тянуть заметно проще конечно. В итоге сделал 270, 280 и 290кг📹 по 3 повторения. Нога уже не болит, но полноценно вкладываться пока просто страшно. Работаем дальше... Настя @suta_ipf тянула с подставок 90кг по 2 повторения в 4 подходах. Таня @mazar_powerlifting делала жим лёжа с весом 105кг по 3 повторения. Понемногу возвращает свою лучшую форму, но при меньшем собственном весе.

This week, I am sharing five of my favorite hip hinging exercises that do not involve starting from the floor.
#2 ) Landmine Block Pulls
Landmine block pulls (and deadlifts) are generally less technically demanding than many other hip hinging variations, so they are another useful option for learning the hip hinging movement.
Line up two barbells so they are lengthwise and parallel.
Set up the weights on an elevated surface like blocks, bumper plates, boxes, etc. Choose a height that allows you to maintain proper form for 100% of the movement.
Adopt your preferred foot width and positioning. Establish a tripod foot base. Pretend you are suctioning or screwing your feet to the ground.
Get into the starting position by hinging your hips back as far as you can, and then bending your knees. Do not get into position by rounding your back, squatting down, collapsing your chest, or a combination.
In the starting position, make sure your hips aren’t sitting too high, or too low (dead-squat). Your shins should be in a relatively vertical position.
Your shoulders should be roughly above your hands.
For the duration of the exercise, keep your arms rigid, lats engaged, and pretend you are crushing something in your armpits.
Before you go, take a deep breath in (360 degree breath around your spine), brace your core (360 degree brace around your spine), and tuck your ribs towards your hips.
Initiate the movement with your posterior chain muscles, and press your body away from the floor.
Exhale after you have pressed away from the ground and are approaching the top position.
Perform the lockout by squeezing your glutes and hamstrings and extend your hips, and extend your knees.
On the way down, your body should perform the reverse movements as it did on the way up.
For the duration of the exercise, do not allow your lower back to round or hyperextend, or your ribs to flare.
Reset in the bottom position and repeat.
הגיע הזמן להפסיק להתבייש מסוג התנועה ולהבין שה hip thrust הוא התרגיל ישבן מספר אחת. לא חייבים להעמיס מוט עם מאה קילו (בהחלט ניתן אבל..) בשביל למצות נכון את התרגיל ומאוד אפשרי לשלב אותו בסופר סט יחד עם תרגילים מורכבים אחרים.
למשל, לאחר דדליפט (כאן עם משקל נמוך, הזזת העומס קצת לאחור ומספר חזרות גבוה (קוצר בעריכה)) תהיו חזקים😘 ותרגישו את הבעירה🔥
Last workout done. On Friday towards the Apcon Official and FPO Finnish Championships in deadlifting. Pretty hard over 4 weeks of hellish training. But if you want something, the price is paid for what the tag says. Many thanks to my dear husband @mikko.malinen for the support coaching and help, I couldn't have gone this far without you❤️And thank to you my coach @eduardkhanjyan! Hope I can make you both proud on Friday!
Here’s me deadlifting 90kgx7
Swipe to see me attempt to deadlift 90kg in March.
🌸notice how different my mindset is in both videos? In the first video you can tell I’m going to smash it. In the second I look so unsure of myself.
💖💖showing up is 80% of the battle. Believe you have already done it and then it’s yours
...also sorry for the potato quality video. I promise I will fix that soon 😂
