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…



Squats

Squat training has been coming along pretty well! I feel that I have a good squat every week keeping my technique while also hitting depth. This week was sets of 3’s and every set felt as light as the first one. My top set was 315 for a triple, which felt fast! The only problem…



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…



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…



11-8-14 – Will Squat for Food

Today’s squat session was inspired by Brazzaz, a Brazilian steakhouse that serves ALL YOU CAN EAT high quality meat!!! I made sure I worked hard, kept my depth during my squats and got the most out of the session. My squats felt solid. I narrowed my grip about a finger width. This helped my upper…



11-5-14 – Dynamic Effort Squats

Today I worked on speed squats for dynamic lower body day which means 10 sets of 2 reps as fast as possible with keeping good form. I stretched out really well before hand and even stretched out my shoulders so they wouldn’t cramp up as I pushed my elbows under the bar. The day started…



10-31-14 – Halloween Squats

Gina and I will be traveling to Florida this upcoming April! Time to get back on track with consistent training! I have already dropped 30 pounds and I will continue losing unwanted body fat while training hard. Not only…
