As a coach, you always wonder if what you say is genuinely being received. In a world filled with distractions, deadlines, and detours, it becomes very easy for our messages to get lost in translation. Or worse, completely ignored. It’s the little things like this that remind me, “....Tell her you’re a light for a lot of us. Strong body and mind!!.” From @nathanielbkc. Many thanks to @callousedhandspower, @jplifts_sbc and the many others who via their articles and teachings over the years have given me this reminder of “What gets said, gets remembered.” So while i May have a lot to say to my athletes, it’s simply from a place of caring about their success. #uspa #deadlift #deadlifttillimdead #squat #bench #powerlifting #conjugate #conjugatemethod #uspa #uspapower #sylvastrong #mbslingshot #apemanstrong #lvlg #strength #strengthtraining #fitness #fitnessmotivation #iifym #strongbarbellclub #strongmindstrongbody #relentless #legend #power #strengthcoach #fitnesscoach

Block pull vs quad mini bands. Last time i hit this variation I was in Chicago at @rockwellbarbell and got a tough 495 x 1. Few months later and i hit 6 triples between 405 and 515 and two top singles at 545 and 585. Good progress. - - Videos 585 x 1 545 x 1 515 x 3 - #uspa #deadlift #deadlifttillimdead #squat #bench #powerlifting #conjugate #conjugatemethod #uspa #uspapower #sylvastrong #mbslingshot #apemanstrong #lvlg #strength #strengthtraining #fitness #fitnessmotivation #iifym #strongbarbellclub #strongmindstrongbody #relentless #legend #power

Physical dominance can make you great. Mental dominance is ultimately what makes you unstoppable. . Get your mind strong so your body can follow. . You can’t train your body—or excel at anything—before you train your mind. You can’t commit to excellence until your mind is ready to take you there. . And that is EXACTLY what my athletes @hunter_marie24 and @sacajaweea1 exuded this weekend at their competitions. - Both experienced circumstances that would have crushed the mentally weak and turned the tide of the meet against them. Instead they used the will and mental strength they’ve been building as individuals to dominate their competitions and become unstoppable even when things didn’t go as they wished. - First. Hunter comes in with a HUGE day in her second meet. Totally 1080 at 165lbs and taking home best female lifter. - Squats 374 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 22lb pr 407 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 55lb pr 429 - 🔴🔴🔴 - successful squat but in the excitement she racked it too early 🤦🏻‍♂️ - Bench 209 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 17lb Pr 226 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 34lb pr 242 - 🔴🔴🔴 - small errors made it difficult, just not their that day. - So as you can see, a few kicks in the ass heading into deadlifts. There is where being mentally strong is SO crucial. Instead of dwelling on what was out of her control. She dealt with the emotions the misses caused and marched on to absolutely dominate deadlifts. - Deadlifts 407 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 33lb Pr 429 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 55lb Pr 446 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 72lb Pr - Couldn’t be more proud of her! Absolutely excellent day. - Secondly @sacajaweea1 (Haley) competed in the 123lb class. - Starting off with squats is a little daunting for Haley as it’s her lift that needs the most work. - 250 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 260 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 10lb pr 270 - 🔴🔴🔴 - lots of work for they to do here. Look for her to squat over 300 at 123 next year! - Bench 160 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 175 - 🔴🔴🔴 - this is where talking to me was key, i watched and assed the video. Gave her some technical and mental cues and 175 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 15lb Pr. - Deadlift 300 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ 330 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 10lb pr 350 - ⚪️⚪️⚪️ - 30lb Pr. - extremely proud of Haley, she did the meet by herself just communicating to me over the phone. - MENTAL TOUGHNESS. It’s what you need to win at life!!

Big congratulations to USPA MO lifter @hunter_marie24 for winning best overall female lifter! She delivered one heck of a performance going 7/9 totaling 1080 in the 165lb class. Coached by SBC’s @sylva_sbc . #Repost @hunter_marie24 with @get_repost ・・・ Today was not perfect but I definitely walked away very happy. One of the biggest changes I noticed this time around was my mental strength. Did I get upset? Absolutely but 5 min later I was back to my smiling and dancing self. This was my second meet. I went 7/9 totaling 1080. Squat: 407 (55lb meet PR) Bench: 226 (37lb meet PR) Deadlift: 446 (72lb meet PR) I stood up with a 429 squat but was so excited I jumped my rack command🤦🏻‍♀️ with more time in the sport and a little bit of patience I’ll get that fixed. Ended up winning my weight class and best female lifter overall. Pretty great day! Thank you to everyone who reached out today or came to the meet it was a wonderful day! And most importantly thank you to the man himself @sylva_sbc for putting up with me and helping build something that will be great very soon. #uspapowerlifting #girlswhopowerlift #strong #USPA #power #strong #strongbody #strongmind #trainedbysylva #sylvastrong @squat2depth_apparel @22ndstbarbell @uspaiowa @mbslingshot

Man, squats feel fucking great today. Did 6 or 7 doubles and was supposed to take some wrapped singles (really not appropriate spotting to push into the 6’s) but wasn’t able too, so next time I’ll make sure to get those in. - 570 x 2 - need to keep position better on rep 2. 545 x 2 525 x 2 505 x 2 465 x 2 435 x 2 - Paused beltless @kabukistrengthlab transformer bar from squats - 315 x 5 x 3 - Finished off with camber bar good mornings, belt squat glute March and reverse hypers - #strongmindstrongbody #strong #strengthtraining #conjugate #havecallousedhands #uspa #uspapower #squat #bench #deadlift #chest #fitness #fitnessmotivation #strengthisforeveryone #neverstrongenough #mbslingshot #nike #kabukistrength #apemanstrong #apemanrising #arnoldclassic #sylvastrong #gwpl #kabukistrength

Headed to @convoy_strength with @kelsiemichelle_ to get her heavy squat session in for the week. (In which she absolutely kicked ass) In between helping her i got my dynamic effort Lower session in. Hit some camber bar box squats, banded deads and then a variety of accessory work. Definitely appreciate the atmosphere and hospitality of all the other trainees and @swoleesi have created and showed us today. - #USPA #sylvastrong #callousedhandspowerlifting #KC #makepowerliftinggreatagain #USPAmissouri #LVLG #strength #elitefts #power #powerlifting #powerliftingmotivation #squat #bench #deadlift #conjugate #gwpl #conjugatemethod #convoystrength #deadlifttilimdead #california #squats #glutes #strengthtraining
