The squat is about mental toughness as much as it is physical. . Some sessions make you feel nauseas. . Some days you will feel like the weight is going to bury you. . The squat requires total focus. . If you’re feeling nauseas. If you’re feeling scared. . Visualise your perfect squat. Visualise what you are wearing. The song you are listening to. Your breathing. Internalise your cues. . Then visualise everything that can go wrong. . Now when you visualise everything that goes wrong, run through each scenario in your mind and how you can fix it. . Train your mind to problem solve. . If you’ve done the work, you have nothing to worry about. . @critta_ @joshtait @courtneymedill @titanaustralia ________________________________________ Need sleeves, wraps or a belt?

You feel like quitting? . Good. . Everyone does. . The difference between those who do and those who do not? Those who choose not to quit embrace the struggle. . They know not every day is easy. . They know sometimes you are going to be sore, tired and hungry. . They know sometimes you just have to work harder. . They also know they are going to be that little bit better then the quitters. @titanaustralia @critta_ @joshtait ________________________________________ Need powerlifting equipment like wraps, sleeves, suits and belts?  Head to www.titanaustralia.com.au and use high quality American made gear! ________________________________________ Contact me at courtney@eastsidebarbell.com.au to organise your membership, nutrition and training consult. ________________________________________

Everything these days is about instant gratification. Easy. Fast. Now. You can sell fast. You can sell easy. . How do you sell “this is hard as fuck and will take time”? . Nothing we hear tells us it will be hard. . Well, it is hard getting strong. It is hard getting leaner. . This is what creates personal greatness. Doing the hard work, day in, day out. . This over time will yield you better results. . It’s a test of endurance. A test of mental fortitude. . It’s not a short or easy journey. . BUT it can be fun. ________________________________________ Contact me at josh@eastsidebarbell.com.au for powerlifting/bodybuilding programming and nutrition or 1:1 training sessions. ________________________________________

Saturday we learned a thing or two. Massive thank you to @flex_success for bringing this guy out! . . #repost @joshtait with @get_repost ・・・ Never stop learning. @critta_ and myself spent the day listening and learning from this guy, @teamevilgsp. We are going to be bringing some info back to @es_barbell ☠️ . . #repost @critta_ with @get_repost ・・・ Such a wicked day and privilege to be able to absorb so much beneficial information from this feisty, knowledgeable, jacked legend @teamevilgsp! So much passion and enthusiasm, loved every second. . I NEVER want to stop learning and being here today not only did that but it also cemented certain aspects I knew which also increases my confidence as a coach and athlete which I'm so grateful for. Looking forward to consulting more with Broderick Chavez in the near future 👌! . Massive thanks to @flex_success @evilgeniusdownunder and Under the Bar for exposing his ass to us all because Broderick is so underrated as well as under marketed.

Today we announce who our new coach is at Eastside Barbell and we are proud to announce that @critta_ has joined @joshtait as our second strength coach. . . He is fresh off the platform after taking out the 80kg class at @prorawpowerlifting X, totalling a massive 785kg and squatting a huge 307.5kg at 78kg bodyweight, so he knows strong! . . Critta is the perfect fit for the gym. His passion, his drive to learn and his knowledge is second to none. He also brings energy and enthusiasm to the gym that is very rarely found in coaches these days and we are truly excited to work with Critta as are our members. . . To book a consultation with Critta to better enhance your lifting email critta@eastsidebarbell.com.au or courtney@eastsidebarbell.com.au. 📸: @konrad_brewski ________________________________________ Contact me at courtney@eastsidebarbell.com.au to organise your membership, nutrition and training consult. ________________________________________

No one cares what plates you have, what bars or what equipment you have. What they care about is being part of a supportive community first and foremost. Everyone is here for the same reason - to be better. Our role as a business is provide that environment, to grow, develop, educate and evolve. As coaches, we need to seek new information, new approaches and apply it. You need to adapt and evolve or you become redundant. . Following the Easter weekend we announce who our new coach is and I am genuinely excited to work together to with him and learn from him. . @titanaustralia @joshtait ________________________________________ Need powerlifting equipment like wraps, sleeves, suits and belts?  Head to www.titanaustralia.com.au and use high quality American made gear! ________________________________________ Contact Courtney at courtney@eastsidebarbell.com.au to organise your membership, nutrition and training consult. ________________________________________ #eastsidemethod #squat #powerlifting #motivation #motivate #bodybuilding #strongman #swole #weightlifting #strength #fitness #powerlifter #deadlift #bulk #preworkout #gym #gymrats #nevergiveup #brisbane #titan #titansupport #coaching #bench #benchpress #power #eastside #eastsidebarbell #20seconds
