Got annoyed by things (life) and stopped at this 501 triple last night and moved into accessory work, should have pushed on. This is no better than failing. Better focus next session. - #uspa #deadlift #deadlifttillimdead #squat #bench #powerlifting #conjugate #conjugatemethod #uspa #uspapower #sylvastrong #mbslingshot #apemanstrong #lvlg #strength #strengthtraining #fitness #fitnessmotivation #iifym #strongbarbellclub #strongmindstrongbody #relentless #legend #power

If y’all would believed in yourselves as much as your grandparents did you might actually accomplish some shit instead of being riddled with anxiety about hard tasks every time one was placed in front of you. - Close grip floor press (i think i left that out @callousedhandspower) 405 x 3 425 x 1 Add @mbslingshot slanger 455 x 1 475 x 1 - #uspa #deadlift #deadlifttillimdead #squat #bench #powerlifting #conjugate #conjugatemethod #uspa #uspapower #sylvastrong #mbslingshot #apemanstrong #lvlg #strength #strengthtraining #fitness #fitnessmotivation #iifym #strongbarbellclub #strongmindstrongbody #relentless #legend #power

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!!

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

2 Stage Isometric Close Grip Bench for 6 reps. These target tricep, upper back, rear delts, and forearms. Isometrics can do for pressing what plyometrics can do for squatting. Start the rep with the barbell on your chest, press to 50% for a two count, and then explosively press the bar into the safety bars placed above you and maximally engage your triceps by pressing into the bar with as much effort as possible for a 2 count. - since i didn’t have this type of rack available today, i simple tried to perform an isometric contraction with all pressing muscles at the top of the rep for the prescribed time. - Recommended set and rep ranges are 3-4 sets, 5-8 reps. Please use the designated gym rack pull bar to do these, don’t beat the shit out of nice equipment. - #powerlifting #squat #bench #deadlift #strongman #conjugatestrong #uspa #uspamissouri #pecs #triceps #lats #traps #uspapower #xpc #arnoldclassic #strongbarbellclub #lvlg #mbslingshot #coach #fitnessmotivation #strongmindstrongbody #gwpl

2 years ago today is @jplifts_sbc favorite video of me. 😂😂😂 #Repost @sylva_sbc ・・・ Tonight showed off what I think is the GREAT progress I made since my last show bringing my biggest, tightest and most refined package to date. I placed 2nd in a tightly contested super-heavyweight class at the 2016 All Star Championships. Its was close by everyones account but hats off to the man that beat me, you were better in the majority of the judges eyes this evening. I did receive some great words of encouragement from people like @thedietdoc And @ifbbpro_lenny about the package i brought and the things I did well this time and the things I need to improve on moving into 2017. Everyone from pros, judges and the fans in attendance gave me some fantastic words of encouragement, I may not have won the show but I did win over some fans with my sportsmanship and candor back stage and in the crowd after. I know the corrections that need be made to put me on the right path for success in the future. Thanks to everyone following my progress and I will see you on the stage again!! --------------------------------------------------------This is the only stage vids/shots I have for now, Ill post more as I get them from the photographer!--------------------------------------------. #beyourownhero #knowyourworth #killkillkill #leigonofboom #1stphorm #iam1stphorm #gohard #liftrunbag #staythecourse #grind #thegrind #createyourlegacy #flagnorfail #mansports #gearedup #npc #bodybuilding #proteinhouse #flex365 #eatclean #trainmean #getlean #alphaclothing #worldgym #hulkhogan #realamerican

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

3. Lifting (throwing) a nonmaximal load with the highest attainable speed - the dynamic effort method. - In addition, the lifting of nonmaximal loads and intermediate number of times (not to failure) is used as a supplementary training method (the submaximal method) - Two of the methods of strength training employed during my Dynamic Effort upper body session today @californiaelitetrainingcenter today. - #USPA #sylvastrong #callousedhandspowerlifting #KC #makepowerliftinggreatagain #USPAmissouri #LVLG #strength #elitefts #power #powerlifting #powerliftingmotivation #squat #bench #deadlift #conjugate #gwpl #conjugatemethod #getstronghurtfeelings #deadlifttilimdead #california #benchpress #pecs #strengthtraining
