Need some motivation today? Checkout this motivational video I edited. We meant to have this done a couple months back but we've been stacked with various projects. Share this with someone who needs motivation today!
In Week #9 of TBT for 52 Weeks I talk about Fuel For Fire. Do you have a fire inside? Well make something happen!
This is a deadlift progression from my lifts between 2014-2015. The highest I've reached is 405lbs. I've had failed attempts at 410lbs but can't seem to get over that hump!
Checkout this 360 degree video I recorded, edited, and of course worked out in. It was tough to do all of these back to back with a 5 minute break in-between. I was gassed but in order to be able to capture all angles it had to be done. Due to the current state of technology the 360° video will only be viewable on select desktop browsers and devices.
Working up to 2 rep max back squat. Got up to 306lbs today 6/18/15.
Working up to a 3 rep max deadlift x3.
This is my 20 rep max attempt for the challenge Noah Ohlsen @nohlsen put on Instagram (3/23/15) for the heaviest 20RM deadlift. After warming up and getting close to a one-rep max, I went back down to 255lbs., an amount I thought I might be able to get 20 reps out of but I fell short at 14. I gave it another shot but unfortunately got 6 reps on my second try! This was a fun challenge though because it so happened to be on a day I was deadlifting!
I attempted the 15.4 CrossFit Open Workout today. I did the scaled version of the workout because I can't do hand stand push-ups yet! Here's a little clip I posted to Instagram.
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 8 minutes of:
10 push presses
Men push press 95 lb. and clean 115 lb.
Women push press 65 lb. and clean 75 lb.
Total rounds completed: 5
Total reps completed: 100
Finally making some minimal gains on my clean and jerk. I've been stuck for months cleaning at 225lbs and got up to 235lbs today. I probably could've split jerked it, instead of trying to press it. Checkout the clip below that was posted to Instagram.
Attempting to split jerk 225lbs for the first time. When performing the clean I need to work on getting under the bar more and do less pulling with my arms. I felt like I was almost able to get the bar up into the split jerk position but fell short on my attempts.
