Assisting @martha_delatorre @bohangwitit @brian.arnwine @blacksidebarbell today with the girls’ first powerlifting meet. I’m not much of a coach (I work more the backend...), but you’ll never have to lift alone if I’m nearby.
Really proud of these girls’ performances today. They were on a mission, executed it, and had a lot of fun along the way. Thanks also to @jessielynus for stopping by as well 😊.
The Blackside Barbell group is off to a good start for their first powerlifting meets 👍.
Train to be strong, look good, have fun, and compete well 💪💪💪.

Are you a hype man or ice man? Intense or focused? Amped or calm? You have fire🔥 or ice❄️ in your veins?
Doesn't matter because no 2 lifters lift the same. What matters is whatever's on the bar you do what it takes to move it.
@brian.arnwine of @blacksidebarbell and I do whatever it takes. 🤜🤛🏿🔥

First powerlifting meet in the books: squat 182.5kg/402.3lbs, bench 90kg/198.4lbs, deadlift 190kg/418.8lbs (barely missed 200kg/440.9lbs). 462.5kg/1019.6lbs total

1️⃣First off, huge shout out to @lidiux12 @mary_medrano2017 @sunshineellisonpham who took time out of their Saturday EARLY morning to drive to SA and watch Brian and I lift. You can't ask for a better support crowd than that, thank you so much for coming.
*****
2️⃣Of all the competitions I've done - weightlifting, tennis, Crossfit, etc... this was the most fun I'd ever had at a meet. Great atmosphere, ran smoothly, and professional staff.
*****
3️⃣Have I lifted heavier in training? Yes. Just wanted to get the feel of judging and meet flow for my first meet, and I'm really glad I got 9 white lights on squats (really worried on depth).
*****
4️⃣With 9 lifts at high intensity (and 3 hours of sleep), powerlifting meets can be a bit taxing. But I was so amped by the environment I didn't care, lol. (My body is a little wrecked this morning). *****
5️⃣Last but not least, @brian.arnwine @xtaylorb @blacksidebarbell , couldn't ask for a better group to compete along side with at a comp. We're training 24/7 in the corner at the gym, we're in the trenches lifting night and day, we're putting in the work the best we can... it was just really nice to have each other's backs at this meet 🤜🤛🏿.
*****
Everyone should compete some day. Put aside the role of worker, father, mother, husband, wife, employee, etc for one day and make the platform your stage 🙌🏋️️‍♀️🏋️
