Deadlift day with some accessories. 82.5kgx6 dead lift and a superset of deficit deads and sumo deads. Lots of compound stuff today :)
I can finally do sumo again. Turns out I have super tight adductors, ITB and the rectus femoris as well as the iliopsoas - all contributing to the pain I have been getting through my inner thighs and groin. I had a quad massage last week which was absolute torture but much needed. I have new prep before I commence my session and new stretches for after my session. I trialled it all out today and sumo was much less painful. Now I just need to work the weight back up as I can. Time to get these legs to their full potential! #deadlift#sumodeadlift#deficitdeadlift#compoundmovements#hipflexorrehab#aspiringpowerlifter#legday#girlswholift
The Bag Down
The military have been crushing hardcore exercise for generations. Why try to reinvent the wheel when there are perfectly good exercises that have well and truly stood the test of time. What I love about this exercise is that it incorporates all of the good things a great exercise should. This is what you get from Bag Downs:
-increased heart rate
-can be used to increase endurance
-recruits stabilising muscles
-upper, lower & core utilisation amongst other benefits.
Grab yourself a bag. A backpack, a sandbag or power bag and have a crack. Remember to alternate onto both shoulders, drive your hips through for upward momentum and brace the core when jumping your feet out so hips do not sag. #compoundmovements#militarystyle#outdoorfitness#hardass#badass#fitnessforall#fitfam#fitspo#instafit#rockhardfitness#realfitness
Two fails and one success (kind of..) at 165kg. I didn't quite manage to hold my back there, something I have to work on then.
165kg is my PR from almost a year ago so it feels good to be back up there and hopefully I'll go beyond.
"It never gets easier, you just get better"
It's always hard, I've never accomplished a goal or any achievement and said that it was easy.
The goals only get bigger, and bigger..but I decided to live and pursue what makes me happy.
If I fail; I'll keep trying. If I succeed then I'll keep trying for more.

Was reminded lately by a few people close to me that there ain't no limit to what you want and can achieve...
Go out work your ass off, get smart, stay disciplined, and grind hard. Ain't no limit..
Planning to travel more this year and next year, wanting to accomplish more going into the new year. I want to learn more every week, every month, every year.
Ain't no limit..

When your kind enough to turn up super early to warm up the village hall before classes but it means you are waiting in the freezing cold yourself!
Only one thing for it! Squats/lunges/push ups and hats!
20 mins later and we had a toasty room and toasty instructor ♀️
