Elite powerlifter and aspiring Viking. S: 725 B:440 D: 705
Here is a sign of a good wrap. Thanks @itstomsaul still feeling it 4 days later 😂😂
Best part of any meet is spending it with this hot chick @corinaparker. Loved watching her compete yesterday and pretty much get everything she planned for the day. And she is Always supporting this almost 300 lb mess. Seriously though, this was my biggest cut from 297 down to 275 and then back up again the next day. Another meet, another metal and scored that best lifter again! @radams_88 you put on an amazing meet! Can’t wait to do it again next year!
I pulled a couple tendons in my left (underhand) arm last week on a deadlift which forced me to alternate my grip throwing me off big time. I had To be as conservative as possible on deadlift so I didn’t injure myself again. So I opened with 675 and it was 6:00 allready and I was exhausted so I knew I couldn’t make 3 attempts so I jumped to 710.99 for my second which would put me at 2000.7. Pulled this bad boy out of this air for a 6 lb all time PR. Ended up getting both goals I came for and passed on my 3rd attempt. Ended the meet 6/9 and only missed one lift. 2000.7 at 270 for a 519.36 wilks. Happy with the entire day. Got to watch my wife @corinaparker do awesome in spite of the fact that she pulled a muscle badly during training and instead of giving up adjusted and still competed! She is amazing!
To get a 2000 lb Total I need at least a 485 bench so I opened with 460 (which was 3 lbs over my last meet PR) and went straight to 485 so if I missed it I could take it again. That happened and I made it on my 3rd attempt. Setting me up to get my goal with a 711 deadlift. This was a 28lb meet PR for me!
So much to say about this meet so I’ll split it up between posts haha. Finally got an 800+ squat at 804.69. @itstomsaul did a killer job on the wraps and I even got to have him and @denniscornelius500 spot me which was awesome! Goal for this meet was an 800 squat and total 2000. I had a 765 opener then 804 and passed on my 3rd. Best part was seeing my beautiful wife @corinaparker with the biggest smile afterwards because she has been there and seen me put the work in! Love you babe! 😘
#throwbackthursday to the last time I attempted 725 in a meet. Hopefully I can pull it off on Saturday 😬 @jgmathias.jm always saving my life 😂
Getting some dry needling and cupping done on my injured arm and some compression sleeves @recovertherapy with @corinaparker before our big meet on Saturday
765 opener ready to go 460 bench opener was smooth on tuesday. and 675 on deadlift. This should be a really fun meet.
Finally got that 725 up. It was with reverse bands though so it was cheating. We’ll see what happens next week.
500!!!!! Finally did it!! Gotta get @mbslingshot to send me some elbow sleeves because these #strongsleeves are too long Hahaha. Do you think I can get this with a pause in 2 weeks? @o.g.flexican killing the programming at @fenixstrongdotcom #iwillnotbeoutworked @uspaoklahoma @uspapower @powerliftingnorthamerica @kingofthelifts #howmuchyabench #okcfitexpo @marksmellybell
Well I can’t deadlift anymore but my squats are going up. 750x3 this morning. @joseph_morse I’m coming for your squat 😂😂. 3 weeks before 805-815 on the @uspaoklahoma platform at the #okcfitnessexpo. #iwillnotbeoutworked #fenixstrong #dundermifflinpapercompany #dwightsgymformuscles @uspapower @powerliftingnorthamerica
500x3 for a new @mbslingshot PR! Usually if I can get a triple with the slingshot, I can get a single without. We are going through adaption phase right now and have been feeling like crap but I’ve been hitting all my number so that looks promising! @uspaoklahoma @uspapower @powerliftingnorthamerica @marksmellybell #gangstawraps #gangstawrapsmademedoit
730x3. My biggest squat session to date. Puts me at about 802. Couple more weeks of peaking and 805 should go up like butter at the #okcfitnessexpo. Was an awesome morning having everyone rally around each person as they went heavy for their triples! #fenixstrong #iwillnotbeoutworked @uspaoklahoma @uspapower @o.g.flexican @fenixstrongdotcom @powerliftingnorthamerica
500x4 on front squat
