Day2 of ‘not being able to do much of anything’
Did my *allowed* 15 minutes on the treadmill and a bit of arms... nothing like properly training but gets the blood moving. Probably did a bit too much walking around Exeter today but we life and learn 🥴
Very much in need of gin and chocolate but it’s Xmas so that shouldn’t be an issue 🍫
Good to be back in business 💯 Reising og ferie hører litt utskeielser til... å snart nermer det seg jul. Men trening og bevegelse legger jeg alltid til, enten jeg er «her eller der»! Jeg tenker balanse, litt av alt og alt med måte! Som ett rutine menneske jeg er i hverdagen, må jeg igjen si at det var fint å komme tilbake både på jobb og egen trenings-arena igjen. Som jeg bruker å si: alt til sin tid 💫 Helgen kom fort denne uken, men litt jobb blir det likevel -hver dag->hele tiden-er det som resulterer til ( om ønskelig ) resultatene «der fremme». SO Let’s do this! Cause dedication doesn’t have an off season. MAY YOUR FRIDAY SPARKLE 🥰

‼️Not just growing a booty‼️
The last two months I have made a complete 180 with my mindset. I’m honestly really shocked but also proud of myself with how much I’ve grown mentally in such a short period of time. It all started with making 1 choice for myself. We constantly talk about how important self love is and how we need to focus on that to be happy but how many people are actually putting that into action?? Two months ago I asked myself this and really pondered how I could set this into motion. I was desperate for a change. I was desperate to get rid of all the dark emotions I was feeling. I decided to stop everything until I fixed my focus. I asked myself what I found fulfillment in and what made me happy and I decided that I was only going to spend time on those things. After that simple yet difficult decision, the universe started sending me a crap ton of tests and every single test became easier and easier while I continued to progress in my personal growth. And I am still continuing to progress. All it took for me was to become a little selfish with my time and energy and it’s incredible to look and see how far I’ve come. I’m genuinely so fucking happy. I’ve stopped allowing my feelings to take a back seat. I’ve stopped allowing myself to be a pushover. The special people around me are supporting this process with me and helping me as I go and I’m so blessed.
I guess what I want y’all to take away from this is, if you’re in a dark place or you feel like you’re life is on pause and not progressing, take a look at what you’re focusing on. Is it healthy? Is it making you happy? Is it benefiting you? Are the people surrounding you serving you the way you serve them? Simple yet extremely profound questions to ask yourself. See how quickly your life takes a turn for the better. •
Getting back into lifting after pneumonia has been quite the educational and humbling experience. @alivialee reminded me today that I also was off powerlifting, outside of a few thwarted attempts, for over 2-3 months before that so I should give myself grace. And my coach @lonesgreen is also reminding me to chill out. So this week pulling 310 from 2" blocks felt so good, benching 90 without chest tightness from lack of ability to breathe was cool, and getting through this horrendous DE lower day with squat against band and 2" conventional pulls followed by 100 lunges was also sweet. Basically I'm sayin we doin stuff and things. That is all. Kthnxbye. #relearning#powerlifting#getbackonthehorse#squat#bench#deadlift#teamdarkhorse#thedarkesthorse
Deadlift single 319
275x4 felt like the things I was focusing on were good.
I'm inexplicably bad at block pulls. Which makes perfect sense. (No it doesn't.) I think logically I'm initiating them wrong but can't seem to get myself to...do it better 😂 we'll figure them out. Maybe.
In other makes no sense news. My squats after deadlifts always seem to feel good.
High bar narrow 231x6 felt really good.
Smashed chest and biceps today. There is something about being in a positive environment that really changed your vision on your goals. Weather it be your work, your friends, or even your family, take yourself out of those negative situations and environments and get yourself into something that benefits and uplifts you, and watch how your quality of life expands!
S: 125kg x5 @1
B: 120kg x1 3ct Pause @8.5-9 & 125kg x6 block press
Training from yesterday. Was a good training with a slight misgrove on bench. On the 3ct pause I threw the weight towards my head a bit too much making it harder than it should've been. Overall it was a good training
Last chance to save on the seminar.
Feel free to stop by tomorrow and join us. It will cost a bit more at the door.
Members, the gym will be closed from 9-3ish. You will be asked to come back at a later time.
See y’all tomorrow morning!

518lbs x3 @ too narrow of a stance (you’d think I’d have this figured out by now lmao)
Getting excited to throw down at Sheffield! Gonna see alll the world records fallll🤘🏼 #teamjoeyflexx
Been only training 3x per week trying to recover better. Seems to be working. Bench 4 sets of 9 reps ending with 308lbs (vid1). Squatted a bunch of sets ending with 528lbs x 5 (vid 2) some reps high, deep beltless squats for a few sets of 5 (vid3), long pause feet up close grip bench up to 319lbs for 3 (vid 4). Finished with some pullups and pushdowns.
Friday night at the bar🍺.
Staying light, and putting on some volume work for a bit.
Did some research and settled on the 7/5/3 wave rep scheme.
Last set shown.
Working sets (lbs)
S/O @tateavi for filming me almost getting a full set with 90’s and then my immediate super set of fly’s and fusion presses. My previous PR on dumbbell bench was 80’s for 6 so this is quite the improvement in strength💪
In memory of my last squat pr 365 days ago I figured I’d see where I’m at 1 year later... AND!! although it’s not much I increased by 10 lbs without necessarily training for increasing weight in my squats. Last year I was at 220 ——> now it’s 230!!!!! WOOHOO!! Only going up from here!! #powerlifting#squats#girlswholift#fitness#fitnessjourney

Back in the summer when I cared more about my physique & the only thing that looked nice were my arms... we getting back to that bodybuilding work thoughhhh
Pretty much the worst training cycle of my life. Wanted to end the year with new PRs but life wouldn't have it. It's so frustrating to give something your all but injuries just keep messing everything up. Gonna take an extended break from powerlifting, work on myself and travel the world. Hopefully this hard reset will do some good.
Powerlifting will always be my love but I need a break.
205kg with straps
Bodyweight 68.7kg. Previous PRs were 200/130/227.5..sigh
