8-7-15 – Dynamic Lower Body (Day 4/90 on the Challenge)

It’s 4:30 am and I hear the alarm going off. I jumped out of bed and knew I had work to do this morning. Since we went to sleep earlier than usual last night, I woke up with a lot more energy. I got ready in a hurry, filled my shaker cup with…



8-3 & 4-15 – Start of the Challenge -Max Effort Upper & Lower

8-3-15
Today is the day where I am starting my new 90 Day Challenge. After talking to Monica Brant about nutrition earlier, I was ready to crush my next Challenge. She gave me some very good advice that I will follow through with. I feel that with everything that has been going on recently, I…



2-12-15 – Deadlifts for AMAP

As many as possible (reps) with 365 being the amount lifted had me really anxious to see how much I could do it for. Being at a lower body weight of 217 lbs coming down from 235, also had me worried that I wouldn’t be able to get it more than 3 times. I finished…



1-18-15 – TEAM HPF’s 2nd Annual Iron & Ice Powerlifting Meet Recap


Another great experience at the 2015 iron and ice meet at HPF. Just like last year the meet was filled with PR’s, positivity, and a energy in the air that can only be found at HPF. My training…



12-27-14 – Last Deadlift of the Year

Last heavy training session of the year and probably till the meet. I wasn’t the best. My goal was to hit 405, which I have done a few times, but today it wasn’t in the cards. I was feeling alright moving up in weight but I noticed the weight was coming up slow a little…



12-1-14 – Back at it with “Heavy” Deadlifts

Let me start off by saying that it feels great to start training again! Things have been REALLY hectic and to make matters worse, I am getting over a slight cold. With those bullshit reasons behind me now, I’m ready to train hard!

Deadlifts were always my weakest lift so why not start with it? Working…



11-22-14 – Dynamic Effort, Lower Body

Today went pretty much just like last dynamic lower body day which is a good thing. I was really focused and kept up a good pace throughout the workout. I worked on speed squats and they came up good and fast and each set was the same in speed and in form. After speed squats…

11-13-14 Dynamic Effort, Lower Body

Dynamic lower body day and I’m working on my speed squats again with a 10 pound increase from last week. The weight felt about the same as last week but it felt like it came up faster and my leg was not hurting this time. I was doing another 10 sets of two with a…



11-4-14 – Deadlifts

Today my legs finally decided to stop being sore. Good thing too since today was deadlift day! I am working with submax weight so I can practice my form. I focused on keeping the bar path close to my body as I lifted the weight. I have a tendency to allow it to travel away…
