Got to the gym tonight only to realize they were closed early for Labor Day. Lucked out to find my gym homies arriving at the same time, none of us wanting to miss the sessions we had planned and looked forward to. Found a 24 hour place that was dead to get our work in. Rad times. #youvegotmore #doitbecauseyouloveit #followyourpassions #noexcuses #dontmissaworkout #workhard #buildabench #powerliftingfriends #gymhomies #guyswithlonghair #fitfam #laborday #dothework #powerliftingmotivation #fitnessmotivation #bencharch #2plates #powerliftingbench #gymalltomyself

Quick Sunday Cardio. Who said cardio had to be boring and long? I did 5 rounds of 1 min. jump rope, 20 Hammer slams, 1min. Battle ropes and 20 swings with 45lb kettlebell, all under 25 minutes. 💪😎

Strength Pioneer Appreciate Post

George Karl Julius Hackenschmidt

Hackenschmidt is often credited as being one of the first strength athletes to popularize both the Bench Press & the Hack Squat.

In 1898, Hackenschmidt broke strength pioneer Eugen Sandow's one-handed press world record with a 122.5kg press.

For this weeks edition of #LittleTittieTuesday (posted ona Friday)👇🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Bench 4x3 (S: 145, A: 135)
+ 5 lbs from 2 weeks ago 🤞🏻🙆🏻
• Weighted pull ups 4x3 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Military press 5x5
• Barbell rows 4x8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bench has been pretty stagnant lately, and although we're not necessarily focusing on increasing strength rn, this has been frustrating nonetheless. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Progression on bench has always been slow, likely due to 1 we always seem to be in some sort of a deficit (not optimal for #gainz) and 2 we're females, and from our experience, bench gains are the 1st to go on a cut, & the slowest to come back... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So even though weight is still not quite where it used to be, this is absolutely a PR @ our current body weights, & we takin' it. #LITTLEWINS 4 #LITTLETITTES. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Good to remember progression can come in several different forms - it's not always about the max weight you're lifting or weight on the scale. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Was your arch bigger? #flexibilitygains
Did you focus more? #focusgainz
We're you more confident during your set? #mindsetgainzzz
Did you eat a blueberry lately? #antocyaninGAINS ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You get the point 🙃 have you made any #lifegains recently? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
BW 59 kg // 56 kg
16 hours fasted

Thank gosh I can still bench [45kg / 99lb] x 5reps😅 Wasnt sure how this session was going to go down after my life priorities of late. Technique a little sketchy as expected. #benchpress #powerlifting .

Had an absolutely INSANE training session today! I don’t know if it was because I ate extra yesterday or slept so good because yesterday wore me out but either way, I was absolutely feeling it today😈
Hit 180 for AMRAP and got 6 after hitting in the rack which was kind of disappointing because I wanted 8 and probably could’ve got it had it not happened but either way I’ll take it since it was a PR 💪🏼 Here are some Dumbell rows im starting to do these instead of machine rows as I feel it more in my lats ✈️ Heavy squats tomorrow so I’m gonna eat up and keep working 🤟🏻
