Wide grip 300lb bench press for a nice pr. It was about 25 degrees in the gym and I could see my breath the whole time. What’s a snow day? #dirtysouthbarbell #snowday

Literally got within an inch or less of pulling 565lbs off 6” locks tonight, I pulled the same weight sumo right before this not really expecting it to go anywhere and that was a 90lb sumo pr. This would have been a 40lb conventional pr and usually whatever I can pull from a 6”block conventional I can pull from the floor conventional. Been hammering my lockout and it’s really paying off. #deadlift #powerlifting #pulltillipassout

How about a #mightywomanmonday @hey_driana is the greatest woman I have ever had the privilege of knowing. She is a strong rollerderby player who never quits, even when she has 4 ribs out of place. She makes me a better person and I count it a privilege and honor to protect and love her. Thank you for loving me.

Whole milk, fish oil, and charcoal for cooking dead animals. Being over 260lbs is fun. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Yesterday marked one year since I started powerlifting. In my first year I competed 3 times twice at 242 and once at 259, placed first in all three competitions. Training under my coach Jim Benson jr we have in the past year put over 100lbs on my benchpress, over 125lbs on my deadlift and 100lbs on my squat. People who say the westside system of training doesn’t work for raw lifting are very mistaken. So thankful for the whole team @dirtysouthbarbell and cannot wait for the future. #oderintdummetuant #powerlifting #yearone
