BULK VS CUT
which one have you personally struggled with the most?
In high school, at 5‘7” and 126 lbs, your boy was tiny. It wasn’t flattering either, by only averaging 1600 (ish) calories a day, ya boy was skinny fat.
What I’ve learned is that whichever phase you’re in, it HAS to be done intentionally.
It was a slow cut (a 300 calorie deficit and consuming 2100 cal roughly). This bulk is the opposite, with a 300 calorie surplus (lean bulking with 2800-2900 calories). It’s been interesting to see how my body has responded to an increase in food. The gameplan is to get up to 175 lbs then cut 10 lbs. It’ll be fun for sure.
Rolling into year 21 like: 💨🌪
Haha but seriously, thank you for all the bday wishes 👌🏽
So here’s the thing. I convinced these fellow oly lifters to to a crossfit workout with me.. AND IT SUCKED. So here’s an Enya original playing in the background bc we all know that Enya mends everything. 💦🔥

wanna hear a joke? Decaf.
Lol but on a more serious note, the adaptability of our body will never cease to amaze me (I guess you could say a lot of changes took place since my last race as a distance runner). Not just that, but being able to experience your muscles make that “connection” when learning a new skill set is definitely a fun time.
Tried this gymnasty complex last week and decided to give it a go before I left. It was a loooot more smooth this time around. 😂

Had absolutely no idea that I was capable of this until the creative juices started flowing after oly lifting; it absolutely blew my mind. Guys, I didn’t have a background in strength or gymnastics, nor knew the difference between a squat or a deadlift until my senior year of high school (I was an endurance runner, why would I care 😂). The purpose of this post isn’t to brag, but more of a friendly reminder that if I — the least qualified for any of this — was able to get strong and learn about body mechanics, what’s to stop anyone else from being capable of doing the same, if not more?
“What did you do on your Sunday afternoon?”
Me: Created a fire meme
A YEAR AGO, ON THIS DAY...💩
we broke state records, ranked as the best pound for pound oly lifter in the state, blah, blah, etc etc. As cool as all those titles sound, they hold no real meaning to me. 😂
What I’ve learned is this: weird/ crazy goals are 100% attainable WHEN we shift our mindset and perspective of what we’re capable of. It was a constant battle with myself day in and day out leading up to state. I honestly didn’t think I would measure up to the other peeps. Being an endurance runner beforehand and having ZERO background with strength, why the hell wouldn’t I believe that? It finally clicked when I shifted the mindset of “what if I don’t measure up” to “what’re the things I can control today that will make me better than I was yesterday?”
Immediately the pressure came off and I slowly fell in love with the sport and appreciated the technicality. Moral of the story, in this crazy world, there’s sooo much opportunity. Let’s identify our strengths, passions and shift our mindset.

A week ago, we: broke a state record, ranked 17th nationally and received the best Olympic Weightlifter in the state award.

It was a bit nerve racking because not only was this my first weightlifting comp, but it was something that we had the chance of winning. As much as I enjoy weightlifting, the goal still is and has been to become a Crossfit athlete. I still have a ways to go, but it's nice seeing the progression towards it. Although it was just me on that platform I couldn't have done it without my coach. As cool as these accomplishments were, I can't dwell on it. There's far more better things we need to achieve and it starts in 27 days. Let's see how that goes.
Powerlifting? Olympic Weightlifting? WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?
Wow, if I had a dollar for every time someone’s asked me how much I bench.. or called me a power lifter.. or even worse, the “oh, so you do crossfit” 😂. What are the differences between powerlifting and oly lifting?
POWERLIFTING: is composed of 3 tests — the benchpress, the back squat and deadlift. Beside pulling or pushing, there are no other variables. It’s the best way to develop just strength.
OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING: on the other hand, requires explosiveness, speed, timing, flexibility, and technique. The squat and deadlift are our “accessory work” meaning, it’s used to help us get our legs stronger for the clean and jerk, and snatch. The squat and deadlift are not our main lifts, meaning it’s cute to have a high squat number, but how will that translate over to the oly lifts?
Both are respectable sports and deep
down, I’m sure I have respect for powerlifters (jk I seriously respect people that compete in that sport). Ultimately, it comes down to the goals of the person to see which one better suits them.
DROP IT LIKE A SKWAAAT 🍑💦☔️
On a scale of 1-10, how important is mobility to YOU? No, seriously. I’m curious 🤓
People overlook mobility. Because let’s be honest, who wants to stretch after working out? 😂 it’s a necessary evil.
I mostly do dynamic stretching/ warmups before my workouts, I find that to work best for me.
Oly style weightlifting is honestly so fascinating. It’s sooo much more than just being strong. It’s about speed, technique AND FLEXIBILITY (holy 💩 what a coincidence)
I’ll probs post a “how to” video on the squat jerk soon. We’ll see. #movementathlete @themovementathlete
These last couple of days I’ve really been thinking a lot about age and time and how none of it is refundable; only memorable.
For every year that passes by, it gets harder to “go all in” on things that we could’ve excelled at. I‘ve also realized that I equally suck at certain things, just as great as I am in others - which is completely fine. The real question is, why not try things out. Idk
Every minute on the minute for 30 minutes:
10 Push ups
15 Air squats
Remaining time on the minute is your rest time
Felt really stiff on a Sunday, so spontaneously decided to go in and move around a bit. Although it’s just bodyweight, things got spicy. 🔥
