Last two sets of 5x6 Goodmornings (sandbagged af), 10x1 EMOM Deadlifts, and an enjoyable disaster of my attempt to do chest supported rows with my I-Beam attachment with the help of @oscarbenavides3. Stress of school is dwindling (or it’s senioritis growing) and training sessions are getting easier even with the weight climbing. I haven’t enjoyed lifting this much in awhile so I’m excited to see where this prep takes me. Also, maxing out a machine is cool until you have two 10’s and a band around the pulley and still can’t get anything out of it. Oh 🐋, got a decent forearm pump @joesullivanpowerlifter .

High bar 253x6@6.5 (aka Tuesday was a fluke and I’m happy about that) and 171x3@8 on bench. 7 weeks left to make improvements #teamjoeyflexx #flexxtrainingsystems
Raw PR on deads 2x3 with 474 and 496. Little over 3 weeks out from WAC Spring Classic. First time trying out @virusintl I was bullied into buying a pair by @nicoflores74kg and @timthebodeau

Benching has been pretty uncomfortable for quite a while now - it seems like I strained something in my right shoulder (again) so I’ve had to slowly reincorporate pressing into my training. I suspect this is from the inclusion of a moderate amount of incline volume which I hadn’t touched in a couple years prior to this last block. That said; this is something like my fifth consecutive session without much pain in my shoulder or pec so, while the weight isn’t impressive, I’m grateful to be benching at all. Just a bump in the road.. onward 🤙🏼

Here are some boring light weight/high volume paused bench videos to show I have been doing things other than deadlifting😋
115 lbs 2x7
105 lbs 2x10
BW: 112 lbs 
I've been having a pain in my upper back/right shoulder blade when benching so I had to find a new way to give self handies - this seemed to work🙌

Let me tell you why this is so amazing. At 181lbs, my Bench Comp Max is 352bs 🤭 (Bish Whet?! ...I know I know). This has definitely been one hell of a training cycle and under 5wks out! #usapl

Truth: It may not have looked like it, I’m exhausted. Didn’t sleep much or have much time to train tonight. I take those obstacles and create opportunities. I think to myself— how can I make this obstacle benefit me!

Shoutout to the @spiderstrengthgym Fam! And the ending with @barbell.mackrell 😂😂😂. Nothing but love y’all!

Competition squat:
370x4 @8.5 🙃
Front squat w/belt:
275x8 @9.5

Bench (touch and go):
250 3x3 @9-9.5
Feetup bench:
205x7 @9.5
195 2x7 @9

Disappointing end to this block. Squat continues to be down in the dumps while bench and deadlift are happy af. Maybe I need to actually do more volume next time 😅

TJ won best overall teen lifter and took home a third place finish in a very stacked 205 (93kg) weight class. 
TJ's best lifts were a 418 (190kg) squat, 264 (120kg) bench, and a 490 (222.5kg) deadlift. 
This is one of the hardest working individuals I've met in my entire life, and it's a great pleasure to be able to coach him and watch him grow as a lifter and as a person. The future is so bright @tjdmuddin68

I've been putting in a lot of time focusing on learning how to properly pull in both the snatch and clean. It's frustrating trying to train bad habits out but I'm loving the progress.

Goodmornings with @masonxwl aka the booty whisperer lol. 295lbs 5x7 with 1-2min rest times. Thinking of replacing deadlifts for a while and focusing on alternative posterior chain movements. Diet has been relatively consistent with 1-2 cheat meals per week. Still dropping about a pound per week. Need to diet down a little harder to get some more consistent weight drop. 
Let’s Get FUERTE! 💪🏼

Not a PR but this is the fasterest that 320lbs has moved for me.  I thought about turning this into a double but didn't want to show off ........my ability to place the safety bars at the appropriate height. .

Couple clips from today's main lifts.
3×5 at 135 bench.
3×5 at 200 squat.
Felt pretty good today -- All sets felt strong. I am trying to be more mindful to pause during bench volume & today I didn't do so hot 😂. Lately I have been asked a few times if I am going to compete again soon...and honestly, I have no idea! We'll see. I have really enjoyed what's going on right now. Mentally, I'm not quite ready yet, but let's see what 2018 brings.

508lbsx4x4 last set on low bar squats on lb Ohio power bar. Today was a big test mentally, going in felt like absolute shit. 508 felt like 600, Lower back and hamstrings destroyed from deadlifts two days ago. Last training day of the week. Still managed to get the work done. Definitely not my strongest volume sets but I will take it. I am feeling confident with 3 weeks left training. Rest day tomorrow #powerlifting #weightlifting #lifting #bodybuilding #strong #strongman #ipf #usapl #usapowerlifting #squats #fitness #teamjoeyflexx #iupowerlifting #flexxtrainingsystems @iupowerlifting @joeyflexx7

I can't believe I couldn't find any 2.5 lbs plates at the #gym today. So everything I did today was 5 lbs heavier than what my program called for. 
Overhead #press 3x5 w/ 175 lbs
#deadlifts 3x5 w/ 455 lbs

My thumbs are starting to develop nice calluses from the #hookgrip

Trying to get over this cold 🤒. Lifting sick sucks. I had a little trouble breathing on my top sets. I totally messed them up too. Did 8 reps no pause and 6 reps with a pause. It was supposed to do 2x4 LoL. Sorry coach. I blame all the DayQuil and NyQuil plus the all-nighter I pulled last night. 180kg on top sets and 160kg for 4x6.  #powerlifting #weightlifting #gains #strong #power #strength #metalhead #puertorican #nerd #gamer #liftheavy #lift #squats #deadlifts #bench #progressiveoverloaddallas #utdpl #sbd #roguefitness #calibratedplates #texas #usapowerlifting #usapowerliftingtexas #gamersthatlift

Back in the lab again...paused safety squats w/ 405 for sets of 6
Tomorrow marks 1 week out. I’ve never felt this good going into a meet before. I’m usually a disaster, both physically and emotionally in the weeks before a meet. This time around, all I feel physically is minor fatigue. Normally, before a meet, I feel really anxious and usually have a meltdown (aka I cry. A lot. At home. At the gym. At work). Surprisingly, I haven’t had my typical peaking meltdown (I mean...we still have 8 days).
-
I’ve learned to dial down the expectations and stop framing my thoughts as “this is what I HAVE to hit to be happy.” Having goals is important, and can be incredibly motivating, but beating yourself up if the day doesn’t go EXACTLY as planned isn’t productive and it’s not healthy. I realized that @girlswhopowerlift isn’t going to drop me if I have a “bad” meet. @killrobbailey and @danalinnbailey aren’t going to be embarrassed to have me representing @thewarhousegym. @ariantank isn’t going to regret coaching me. -

Last Arnold, I had zero expectations going in. I had a couple pretty rough life experiences which only allowed me to train 6 random weeks out of 12 during my prep and I almost pulled out of the meet twice. I had no expectations because I couldn’t have any. That was my best meet to date. Not only did I hit some of my best numbers, but I had the most fun I’ve ever had at a meet and felt the most accomplished. I was singing, dancing, and laughing literally up until they called “bar is loaded” for each lift. I learned that I need to keep it fun and light hearted in order to succeed and feel good about myself.
-

I’m honestly not sure how feeling this good physically and emotionally will translate in 8 days, but I’m ready to have a good time no matter what my numbers are.

Here is @thevanillagorilla92 and I. He coached me this peak for #cpunats2018 
I ended up getting 309.5kg bench for the longest lockout ever. I can now say I am the best equipped bench presser in CPU history. I edged out Shawn, who had that title for over 10 years. 
181 Bench Wilks. Pretty alright day so far.

When your coach doesn't think you can walk out 500lbs he says to just push the weight up and hold it but then says to do another one & then says he thinks you could've walked it out ... hoping to try it next week!! 💪

...GOOD, BAD, GOOD NEWS!
...
GOOD #1:  I was able to lock in my hook grip and fully pull with my body weight against a immobilized barbell.  It took some adjusting to find a painfree grip without weakness, but I am confident to try a heavy pull on Saturday :).
...
BAD:  While warming up with an empty barbell for squats I either strained my left hip flexor or experience some kind of impingement in the front of my hip.  Coming out of the hole was very painful.
...
GOOD #2:  So instead of panicking, I spent 20-25 minutes of empty bar sets trying to figure a way to get some light recovery work in by adjust foot position and depth to see where the pain is spiked the most.  I ended up pointing my toes nearly straight and tried to drop no lower than parrallel.  Ended up getting in 4 sets of 5 × 315.  A little lighter than my scheduled recovery weight, but nonetheless close enough.
...
It's important to note.  Injuries happen in this sport.  It's on the side of every dice we shake in game.  It's more important to move to the side of things that block our path on the board, than kick over our pieces with disappoint.

For those who have asked, this is the powerlifting meet I’ll be participating in (my first ever!) Saturday May 12 put on by @santacruzstrength At @crossfitwestready The more the merrier, I’d love anyone who’d like to come to be there. Just keep your expectations reasonable 😂 #powerlifting #santacruzstrength #usapowerlifting #rawlifting #72kg #doyouevenlift #grrlpower #whatthehellamigettinginto
SSB things, followed by the most awkward overhead squat things, and benchy things. 🔈bytes include “HOW DO THEY DO IT?!?” 🤣🤣
••
☝🏼SSB: 3x5...with something between 85 and 90ish kg's 🤔
I don’t know what the bar weighs, and there’s a 2.5 plate in between bc “someone” loaded it that way 😬(it sure felt like 90+ lol)
••
👉🏼Believe it or not, this last set of OS was the LEAST worst of the 6 I did 🙈😅
Bonus of extra core engagement from holding back all the laughter 😂😂
Thank you to my Oly frands @dan_laury and @cjacosta90 for their tips! Next week will maybe be better 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️
••
👉🏼👉🏼57.5kg on the bench for 9.5 reps [supposed to be 10 😬]
On Wednesdays, I work up to a 1 x 3 heavy-to-me single BEFORE the pec death by volume. This was brutal, and I loved it 😁

Bella practicing her deadlift.  This is 140 lbs at 72 lbs body weight. We've been practicing getting her setup consistent. 
She is registered for USAPL Midwest/Central regionals.

Even the cat decided to watch her.

Benching is only half the battle and the rest well I’m still trying to figure it out but I think I’m getting closer.

A little under 2 weeks out from the SBD Arnold Pro American, and @patrick_gpathletics has finished up all his heaviest work, with the above 535lb. squat, 395lb. bench, and 630lb. deadlift being his top singles for the peaking block. From here the slow taper begins, where we learned last time that Patrick’s squat and deadlift peaked extremely well with a typical taper, but his bench definitely required some more volume and intensity to be left in. This time with volume not dropping until about a week out, and keeping the intensity up until the last 3-4 days before. We will see how it all plays out March 3rd, when he gets to share the platform with the best in the world!
