POWERLIFTING MOM OF THE DAY- @kmommyk
How long have I been a mom: 10 years in April How long have you been powerlifting? I've been powerlifting for almost 2 years. I've had to stop and can't wait to be done with my current military training to rock the sport!! Current maxes? Deadlift: 305, Bench:165 Squat: 300 Most embarrassing lifting moment: There are quiet a few, but one I'll never forget was my first time trying to lift "heavy" on the deadlift and when I was pulling I went ahead a peed myself. 😂😂😂 I had to drop the bar run To the restroom. I cleaned up and realized it looked like sweat so who cares and went and completed the lift. 😂Advice to moms: Work out with your kids. Start their lifestyles out right. We want our kids to be the best possible versions of themselves as possible and what a gift to give them... knowledge on how to eat healthy and be healthy and ultimately happy.

Control day, despite not having any caffeine prior I’m pretty happy with how these moved/felt. No pain, just some low back fatigue. Really trying to remind myself to keep my chest up, knees out, and keep constant pressure against my belt. #deadlift#paused#controlled#powerlifting#breakthebar#usapl
Tip-Tuesday: Do you have Anterior Knee pain? ——————-Anterior Knee pain is a common occurrence in athletes and those that engage in regular exercise. Often referred to as Patella Femoral Syndrome (PFS), this condition often last for months at a time and can become chronic. Common signs include knee pain when walking up and down stairs, or after sitting for lengthy periods of time with knees bent. At this point, simply resting will likely not be enough to completely eliminate your knee pain even after returning to exercise. Research indicates the best plan of action for dealing with chronic anterior knee pain is a combination of glutes/Abductor strengthening and quadricep strengthening. In particular, eccentric exercises done for the quadriceps can help eccentrically strength the muscle and promote remodeling of tissue in a positive manner. Above are two exercises I have been using myself to combat anterior knee pain. ———————The first is a Single leg squat progression. Standing on a small incline to put emphasis on the patellar tendon, slowly lower yourself allowing the knee to come forward until your opposite foot touches the ground. Then, bring your opposite foot back and use it to rise back to your starting position. For those that this variation becomes to easy, you can do the same thing except work on lowering yourself into a full pistol squat position, then bring yourself back to starting position. This can be done for 6-10 reps on each leg. The second exercise is an eccentric leg extension. Bring a weight difficult to hold with one leg up with BOTH legs and then slowly lower it with one leg, alternating legs every rep. Resist the weight lowering for about 3-5 seconds and do for 8-12 reps. You should expect that these exercises will elicit some anterior knee pain, but the pain should be no greater than a 5/10. These exercises should be done 3x a week for a minimum of 6 wks according to research. Again, these quad exercise should be done in concert with glute/abductor strengthening such as Single leg RDL and lateral band walks. ———-“Anterior knee pain Which muscle should I strength?”—J Orthop Sports Phys Ther 2018;48(1):32. doi:10.2519/jospt.2018.0501.
The sign on the wall says "No Whining" ... The only thing I hear whining is your back for help. Tag your deadlift partner

So what do you do when you've had a not so great day and you are working up to a heavy 95% single. Well you hit it then you hit a 30 pound #pr . No need to complain use it and make that crap day into something good.
Started the week off right after the entire weekend not touching a barbell. It could be the angle, but I feel like my deadlift form is cleaning up nicely. I've been picking away at the same weight (225lb/102kg) again and again to clean it up. I don't know why but my right side was tapping the ground first and it was kinda annoying 😃 #deadlift#ewwpants
A year ago Weightlifting House was basically nothing. Now I am entering the barbell business! This last year has been an amazing journey.
🏋If you are interested in a barbell then hit me up in the DM or comment below.
Finally had some significant speed improvements in the squat today so hopefully will be able to move up in weight next week. Tng bench just keeps going up. Deadlift felt heavy today so kept the RPEs a little lower.
