🦄I usually keep my Inner Circle videos & articles private, just for the IC, but I spoke about this with my Inner Circle earlier today and several members told me they thought I should share it publicly because they know many people who struggle with it, so I‘m going to lay it out here for you as well.
☕️It's very easy to get caught up in the mindset of expecting see your strength go up every time you go to the gym.
🦄Because, when you first start out, your strength *will* go up nearly every time you go to the gym.
🦄But as you get stronger, the harder it becomes to get stronger.
☕️That's why I've said for years, "the stronger you get, the harder it gets.”
🦄In the same way you can't expect to lose weight every time you step on the scale, you can't expect to gain strength every time you go to the gym.
☕️And in the same way losing scale weight isn't the only way to know you're losing fat (measurements go down, bf goes down, clothes fit better, you feel better, look better in the mirror, etc)...adding weight to the bar isn't the only way to know you're getting stronger (use better form with the same weight, do more reps with the same weight, feel stronger with the same weight, get less fatigued, etc).
🦄All of that aside, I want you to remember one very important point.
☕️You probably got "hooked" on lifting because you loved it. You loved how it made you feel. You loved how empowering it was. You loved the process of getting stronger.
🦄Now, if you find yourself getting stressed out or worried or concerned or angry or demotivated because you aren't getting as strong as you'd like as quickly as you'd like....take a step back and re-evaluate.
☕️Breathe. Smile. Relax.
🦄You do this because you love it. So don't let it become another stressor. Enjoy the process. Take it all in stride. Keep on going <3

I picked the closest bench to the bathroom just in case cause I felt like straight puking the entire workout. But I’m stubborn af. Maybe I’ll get lucky and puke tomorrow during deadlifts 🤢😎 I didn’t go anywhere near max, I just worked on slow controlled movement. This is 115. Then I did 125 for singles with 2-3 second pauses at the bottom. Followed by floor presses for accessory work and that’s all. Felt good and I’m personally glad I didn’t stay in bed all day even though we all know that’s the better choice 🤷🏻♀️😬 now I’m going to get a happy meal cause idc I need the happy.
odyssey blog 3/19/18: "COLD SHOWERS" Working crazy amount of hours & lifting puts tremendous amount of stress on the body. I couldn't figure out a remedy, even with supplements, yoga, foam rolling & massage therapy. Then i challenged myself to a full week of cold showers. Saying this purely it was a bitch at first but after a couple of days my body got used to it, making me feel amazing. Usually by the end of the week my feet would feel like bricks but cold showers allowed me to walk normal & gave me my legs back. Here are other benifits i found it gave. -Increases Alertness. Taking a cold shower in the morning, and feeling cold water pour down over our body seems more horrifying than soothing. ... -Refines Hair and Skin. ... -Improves Immunity and Circulation. ... -Stimulates Weight Loss. ... -Speeds Up Muscle Soreness and Recovery. ... -Eases Stress. ... -Relieves Depression.
We're all on a odyssey, stay strong my friends. 💪
W1 D1 of the #canditodeadliftprogram
Beltless Sumo Deadlift: 415x1 -> 315x8
I was supposed to work up to a single with ~35lbs left in the tank. It moved well but I think I might have went a bit too heavy. 315x8 was a bit challenging since I'm used to doing less than 5 reps per set.
Super excited about this program. Hopefully it'll help my poverty deadlift out.
The difference between being hurt and injured is key. Hurt the shoulder Saturday at work, today i had to battle the self-talk that was going through my head today regarding the shoulder. Accepting of this missed single, body is learning how to correct the weight mid-lift. Everyday we get better, your only injured when the Doc says you are, keep pushing. #ForeverPushing
Just a smolboi tryin to become a swolboi. Currently 6 days out from the meet. Feeling lots of nerves and excitement as well. Currently making sure to do everything I can to have a successful first meet which means eating an adequate amount of calories and getting plenty of sleep. Ive trained hard for a solid year and now I'm ready to see what I'm really capable of. Lets go! 💪🏼
I overreacted on my first set and took out the belt prematurely. 🤷🏻♀️ Deadlifts make me nervous. Ezpz sets of 5 at 238 ish lbs. Mixing plates are never a good idea but I still do it. @uncle_goob @liftevil #deadlift#powerlifting#powerlifter#deadlifts
Love when goodies come in the mail 😍❤ can't wait to wear my new taco lftr tank!!!! Thank you @garagegymbarbell @susie_q_aranda 😘
If you havent already, check out their website and all the amazing things they have to offer! All super cute!
When gym is life, you can never have enough gym clothes 😉
In all seriousness, though, bench went pretty well today. Probably should have gone for at least another rep (or 2) on my top set (92.5kg/203.5lbsx8), but the 8th rep felt like it slowed down and I didn't want to risk roll-of-shaming. Looking at the video, I probably had a little more in me. Oh well.
Backed off with 5 sets of 73kg/160.6lbsx10 with my feet up and a bunch of back work.

18 days out. 3 x 2 @ 115kg. This was my comp PB in December so I’m so damn stoked that I’m doing these for reps. @ironclad_fitness_official
18 марта прошли мои первые соревнования по силовому троеборью в ск «Политехник» , на которых я в весовой категории до 83 кг заработал 2 разряд и занял 3 место, показав следующие результаты: приседания 145 кг, жим лёжа 122,5 кг, становая тяга 160 кг!
first things first, RIP THE PEACHY CASE 🍑😭 it had one too many tumbles and a corner came off, without having it there I didn’t feel safe having my phone in it (I’m clumsy af) so it’s back to my plain’ old white apple case.
it’s my second day of being 24 and I’m doing all those adult things of cooking, studying and going to the gym and trying to hard to grow the boooooty 🍑
