S/o to @kingdom_roots for the dope shirt. 
Give them a follow!!! It's lit. 565lbsx2 @ RPE8. The bar was super shake because of the bumper plates I probably could have done more but I'll save it for a rainy day.

Then smell doubles and triples @ 530lbs.

Today was great. Can't wait to get grt after it again.

3 weeks out feeling crappier and stronger everyday!

Soon I'll have the life I've been hoping and praying for because I know everything I've gone through has been too much for me not to get what I deserve. 
You see people it's one thing to hope and pray for something, but it's another thing to believe and accept what you asked for. You cannot do one without the other. 
Accept , belive and receive.

One of those days where you just try to make it though the work out. 
I finally feel strong on bench but my body won't let me feel great. Hit 320lbsx4 my shoulder starred tweaking so I racked it.

Then some heavy 10s on RDLS with 365.

Just gotta figure out a way to make it through.

You have those days and moments where you feel overwhelmed and tired and life just gets at you. I prayed and asked God for a way to deal with how I was feeling or to just do something and like always he answers with people or things. Thank you to those who took the time to listen. I appreciate it.

Hit a PR squat @530lbsx2  @ RPE 8.

I think these would have been a lot better if my stomach wasn't acting crazy. I couldn't really brace like I wanted to. Gotta time my meals better.

On bench , 330lbsx3 @ RPE 8.

I just gotta remember to squeeze my cheeks. I also kept repeating to myself "don't think just go" and the mouth piece helped as well to bite down on.

Wasn't feeling to tonight altogether but I thought about my mother and that got me through it.

4 more weeks....

" Always demand more of yourself than others demand of you. Be honest with yourself and you'll be able to meet every challenge with confidence and the deep believe that you are prepared for anything life can be complicated the truth is not"

Really enjoyed Tim Grover's Relentless. I really  liked it because it reminded me that I was crazy because I had the qualities of a cleaner. Describe the qualities of some of the greatest athletes and what it took to be almost perfect in every aspect of their game. The lessons in this book are also things you can take into daily living to be the best at whatever it is you do! Really recommend to athletes as well as people who've lost that urge and fire to progress or to those who aren't really sure of the mentality it takes to progress.

The next book I'm about to start is by Mark Manson-The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F $#$. I'll let you guys know how that one goes too!

I was really upset Saturday so I went away to an unfamiliar gym and and banged out a new Personal best for 3.

540lbs x 3 @ RPE 8.

It was really hard to hold the weight because I couldn't push my elbows forward. My shoulder was acting funky which forced me to make my grip wider. But  I honestly felt like I could have done more. I guess being angry isn't the  worse thing.

Then hit a double on bench @ 340lbs @ RPE put it back because your spotter was throwing me off and I was really hungry. Was supposed  to go for 3 I'll try it again next time when I got some food in me. I think I may have figured out how to bench again like foreal foreal this time.

I feel like I'm just getting started. Ready to really push myself these next weeks.

I can say that getting ready for this meet has probably had me in the most vulnerable state when it comes to being afraid. It's not even the competition that I'm worried about its doing the actually work outs that will have me on my toes. 
But I've come to the conclusion that it's either you do it or you dont. You either man up and rise to the occasion or you waste your time with "I wish" or"i could have". And I can feel this leaking into other areas of my life like work and school my relationships with people and just on a more cerebral level how I go about things.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with being afraid but you have to refuse to let it paralyze you and dictate your decisions especially if you know what you want.

"If you dont have any problems, why worry? If you have a problem and you cant do anything about it , why worry? If you have a problem and you can do something about it, why worry"

When ever i have a problem i always follow it up with "well Marcus what are you gonna do about it". If you can do something about it do it. If you cant let it go.

Tonight was definitely one of those days were the voice inside my head was screaming "no you cant" but I was only accepting silence because my YES was louder. I'm just proud that I got through it. 
Sometimes it's not about how you feel, it's about what you want and what you're willing to endure to get there. 
Momentum is building as well as confidence.  Let's get to the money.

Literally it all starts with you. If you feel a certain way about yourself or you think a certain way, that's how you'll act and that's how people will perceive you.

Stop waiting for gratification on something to believe yourself to be. You don't have to wait for someone to tell you you're something or somebody ,just start acting like it!

Training kind of started off a little slow today but things started to pick up and everything started to move really good 
Truly feeling confident with these 525lbs doubles. And actually ready for more weight. Feeling great after having @atanatomyworks work on me.

Originally I was gonna stop at 335 because it felt like crap but @to.pimp.a.powerlifter went up in weight and I refused to let him one up me so I ended up hitting 360lbs on bench for my top set. There's nothing like friendly competition to get that fire going because I was heated lmao. I'm not sure what it is about competition that gets me fired up I'm talking about real life smack talk I never back down from a challenge so I'm going to try to train with Myo every chance I get!

Finished with  DB row 10s and pull up 5s superset.

I actually feel ready for this even on my bad days I still feel ready. 6 weeks baby. Let's make it happen coach.

It's really hard to balance that selfless-ness while worrying about yourself.

If there's a great amount of mental strain it can really start effecting other areas of your life tremendously. It's so easy to get rapped up in everyone else and everything and you forget about yourself. You feel tired, weak, drained and like no one cares. But you have to remember that you care about you. It's important to be good to yourself because no one knows you like you do. If you can be happy with yourself and love and respect yourself, no one else can. The right people , THE RIGHT PEOPLE will notice this and understand and will better this process when it happens.

Sometimes you gotta go to that place in your mind where that anger and frustration lies and  tame all those thoughts so they can power you through your problems as well as your pain. Tonight was rough but got through it.

You get to a point where you're tired of talking, tired of hearing it from yourself and others  and it's time to work. Let's get it  #6weeksout

#ThirstyThursdaysAtTheBar

Tonight was fairly easy. In the middle of  my training session I got pretty heated because of some nonsense so I was extremely upset but if you're upset you can't think straight and when you can't think straight nothing flows so I had to calm down.

550lbs doubles @ RPE 5 on Deadlift. Ready to actually have some weight on the bar.

145lbs for 5s on OHP
Widened my grip  to match my bench 
Finished with some pull up variations for 10s.

Always remember to think before you speak and before you act and always be ready to accept the repercussions.

There's been several occasions where I wanted things happen to where I had no control and God was always right on time. Not when I wanted something but when i needed it. You gotta realize that we want a lot of things and our mindset teaches us that luxuries are necessities which is a terrible attribute we've acquired. I know God looks out for his people, his children doing right by him. People don't understand that faith is the underlying factor on whether or not you will receive your blessings even when everything looks like poo.

There's been several occasions where I wanted things happen to where I had no control and God was always right on time. Not when I wanted something but when i needed it. You gotta realize that we want a lot of things and our mindset teaches us that luxuries are necessities which is a terrible attribute we've acquired. I know God looks out for his people, his children doing right by him. People don't understand that faith is the underlying factor on whether or not you will receive your blessings even when everything looks like poo. Stay prayed up and expect good things and in his timing know that it will come to pass.

A little bit more from yesterday. I can def rock with ending my workouts this way(no I'm not a boxer). A good form of cardio while staying sharp. Boy I was exhausted luckily if someone decided to run up I have every intention of ending the fight quickly but def gotta find a way to fit endurance into my powerlifting training.

Normally when I feel like crap I have the best sessions so I gave it a chance last night.. It's not my first go to, to train super late. My elbow was bothering me like crazy too but they way I was on fire last night If I was programmed to do this for 6s i feel like they would have been cake. Also I tried not to think about how I felt vs how much I enjoy doing this. It's fun to me and a stress reliever. I wasn't going to turn it into anything else but that.

495lbs triples at RPE 6-6.5.

Been reading @attackathletics Relentless and I feel like it's definitely been helping my mental game a ton.

I think I'm mentally ready to get some more weight on the bar...just not that bar because it was bent πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. #PrettyStrongPowerLifting

Everything that's supposed to be there will be there and if you're life changes its either teaching you something good or bad , or preparing you for something greaterer-est-ist. Yes I just made that word up but it's true.(Romans 8:28)

That's why it's good to go with your natural flow. You start moving to fast and you notice how things will just begin become a mess. You know when you're disturbing your natural flow. Don't mess that up just rock with it.

495lbs for some triples felt ok RPE 7. I wish I could squat faster but I realize that I have to go even slower . It was just hot as idk what I felt dehydrated I had to inhale water. 
Then I hit 280lbsx4s RPE
Think I found my set up. 
Just trying not to suck out here in these streets. I do like that I switched to flats for bench though. 
Another thing, stay prayed up out here in these streets man its really dangerous these days. Respect everyone man.

In all my years of training and living becoming a young man I've encountered a lot. A lot of physical pain and mental/emotional stress. The kinda of pain and stress the average person would succumb to. I'll call myself average but my will to succeed and my courage to withstand my hardships made me who I am today as well as bought me a little close to the man I'm supposed to be.

We all have hard times but it's what we do in the midst of it that defines who we are and who we will become. 
What would you rather experience. Going through pain and suffering and giving up because it's too much or the pain and suffering knowing that if you hold on just a little bit longer that you'll be where you want to be.

I've never been the strongest or the smartest but I've always found a way to hold on a little bit longet.

Hold on this morning and hold on this week. You're almost there.

Good morning!

Well this explains a lot. Sometimes I be thinking I'm crazy ( I am), but if you ever wonder why people don't stay it's because they're not supposed to be there or they're  only there to teach you lesson. Then we complain and become sad as to we're alone. Don't fret. God is looking out even when we feel like we can do it on our own or when we feel like we wavered to far.

Walking through Barnes and Nobles really had me overwhelemed. I felt like a child again. Remembering the trips i would take with my Mom and grandma to the book store. I used to read so much. 
Seeing the covers and reading the first couple pages bought me back to those days and reminded me how much I enjoyed reading and experiencing something from someone else's eyes.

Excited to start reading these 2 books right here and definitely excited to start reading this NLT study bible because I've been meaning to get one of these for awhile. I'm going to start youtubing again soon so maybe I'll start doing reviews if anyone is interested!

Waiting to not suck at bench press.

Single @ 355lbs 8.5-9.

Close grip bench @ 265lbs for what was supposed to be 6 but I was doing 8s. Didn't realize that until my last set so I was fatigued for no reason.

OHP AMRAP I only got 3 @ 185lbs. I would have gotten at least 6 of I didn't decide to bench first but it's been a year since I've hit this for 3 smh but a tied PR I guess?

And 75lbs pull up 5x5. @prettystronglife keeps firing me up about pull ups so I'll just do them everyday.

I believe this to the core, people see you. Even if you don't feel like they do. Especially if you're in a position to set and example I feel it's super important to be genuine, look for the light in others as well as let God's light shine through us all. ✌

Master will, master self. 
I can't tell you how much things change the more you're challenged and the note you're willing to step up to the plate.

Self awareness is key.

I've been set on trying to prove myself right. At some point you gotta stop listening to everybody else and hear what you say to you. Can't tell you how important that is. To prove that your loved ones and yourself that you can be a somebody. What everyone else says doesn't matter when your trying to achieve something because ultimately you have to make the decision of whose words you want to live by.

I finally figured out how to squat again. After watching my spirit animal @jessenorr I finally got my form back. Honestly guys squatting anything above 500 for reps scares the cap out of me so today I faced my fears and on my last set I got 525lbsx3. I could have done 5 but this wasn't even apart of the program. I'm just happy to gave gotten to this point because the last time I did this for 3 was a little bit over a year ago and it was so difficult 
Over head press when super great. Elbow has been bothering me but I got through it and got an AMRAP Pr set of 6 with 175lbs. 
This whole month was me lifting weights I've never touched before so I'm still acclimating to everything but I gotta prove myself right and my moms right so this is only the beginning

Super disappointed with my performance tonight. 
Top set of 615lbsx3 on deadlifts which is a Pr for me but was supposed to get 5. Grip was acting up. Tried to use straps but that didn't even feel right. Even worse the skin started to come off of my palm. Next time. (Work out powered by @mikerashid ''s pre alpha. I loved this preworkout and I'll say I was once of the first to get it when he first decided to make supplements in his home. Click the link in my bio to get you some. It won't disappoint!l

Hit a single a 355lbs on bench felt my but come off just a wee bit. After my back downs I took 355lbsx3 and 365x2 with the sling shot.

Really focusing on these weighted pulls 5s with 70lbs and did supersets with bent over rows. May start doing farmer carries for that grip. 
Nationals is almost here. Building

2nd time's the charm right??
Came in again to squat after being unimpressed with my training Monday and even though it was slightly difficult every thing felt way better.

It's crazy how much of a difference things can make if you take your time. I didn't rush my warm up and I made sure my set up was on point!

465lbsx5 with the slight pause RPE 8. Well some of these were paused, I thought I paused ,we gonna say so anyways.

I don't ever want to look back on anything and say I didn't try. 
Super upset squats didn't go well yesterday, luckily I had squats again so I made up for it tonight. Probably wasn't the smartest thing to do but got it done.

Most people try but they only try to the best that they feel like they had. Next time try like you know you can do something and though you may not succeed, you will get receive more because of the effort that you gave and it will be a whole lot more than if you would have tried without giving it your all. "Try...and if that don't work try again and try harder and harder and then try even harder"- Mommy

I don't ever want to look back on anything and say I didn't try. Super upset squats didn't go well yesterday, luckily I had squats again so I made up for it tonight. Probably wasn't the smartest thing to do but got it done. Most people try but they only try to the best that they feel like they had. Next time try like you know you can do something and though you may not succeed, you will get receive more because of the effort that you gave and it will be a whole lot more than if you would have tried without giving it your all. "Try...and if that don't work try again and try harder and harder and then try even harder"- Mommy #BrickByBrick  #GodIsGood  #2Timothy17  #MuscleManMarcus  #MakestrengthYourOnlyOption  #Fitness  #Strength  #Power  #BodyBuilding  #PowerLifting  #PowerBuilding  #Fitness  #FitnessInspiration  #FitnessMotivation  #FitSpo  #FitQuote  #Blackfitness  #CLTfitness  #83kg  #SquatMotivation  #Gym  #Training 
I'm just trying to prove to myself that I'm right when everything else says no. I just know I'm right.

Be right this Monday everyone.

OHP AMRAP at 165lbs for 7. Best set ever! Almost ran out of breath lol. Nevertheless a PR!! Then I hit close grip with the slingshot at 285lbs for 8 which is a PR because we'll I've never done it.

Finished with some rows, pull ups and triceps push downs. These days are so much easier mentally. I mean I still had to lift but it's not as taxing as most of my days. 
One day down, a lot more days to go. We good though

Told my aunt I was going to start eating breakfast no matter how tired I was. Even if it means me waking up early. I have a lot more energy to train and my body weight is 187lbs mid day...I think..or something like that. Just been eating more and trying to time my meals so I'm not super gassy before I lift lol. 
Just focusing on staying positive. It may not seem like the smaller moves are the most impactful but every move matters when you think about the bigger picture. .

#FridayNightsAtTheBar 
So I pulled 595lbsx5 which is a PR for me but my camera dropped smh  only caught one rep.

Then here's a back down at 575lbs.
It's the simplest things that will change a lift. I wasn't pulling the slack at the bar on my warmup and things felt super awkward. Full body tension is the goal in the big 3 and if you're lose anywhere that's going to be a leak in strength and power.

Now what I'm most proud of is this bench press because I didn't think I was going to hit 365lbs before the block was over 😭 but here's a single. Shout out to @black_stalwart and @dawsonwindham for the bench press tips and motivation as well as this pre-powerlifting meet smack talk πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I had someone tell me that I need to believe in myself a bit more and that really hit home and made me think. Let's get right.

Nothing special. Everything felt really heavy tonight. Did what I could.

Close grip 8 with @marksmellybell #Slingshot.

Then an OHP AMRAP with 155. Only got 6. I know I'm tired because I normally would be able to bust at 9 or 11 but today is not the day. Next time.

Hey guys just wanted to drop something for #MotivationMonday. So if you don't know legs are my favorite body part to work so here's my training from early 2013 when I first started working out in a real gym until the end of 2016. From 225 and barely 315lbs to 525lbs all highbar. The more I learned the stronger I got even though it took awhile.  A lot of mistakes were made and I've also gotten a lot of injuries but perseverance is definitely key.  I'll show you guys my lowbar progress as well after tweaking my back multiple times as well. Keep pressing forward!

Friday nights at the bar.

495lbs for 3s at RPE 7.5-8. My back is so tight from deadlifts yesterday. I feel really good about these because I was still able to brace and keep my form. I think I finally found my perfect footing. Ready to see how things progress not that I'm feeling confident. 
I literally just got off the phone with my mother. We were on the phone for 2 hours. The Bible talks about wisdom and how important it is to hold on to it, especially in terms of your mother. In a scary way it's almost comforting that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. Looking back on life with my mom and realizing everything we've been through together I understand that I'm in my perfect struggle. This struggle will set me up for my perfect success that's just for me. 
The reason I'm going to be successful is because 1. God and 2. I'm a fighter. So I have nothing to be worried about as long as I keep fighting and as my great grandfather said before he died "Hold on to the Lord, and he will hold on to you"

Pumped for training, pumped for life. *in my Martin Lawrence voice* Nationals! Baaaaby!! Where you at!!!? #GodIsGood

This goes for training, life, school whatever and I've always been like this. Some days the words of my mother ring in my head. "Try harder" I would tell my mom  that I'm trying as hard as I can and that I couldn't do it. Then she would tell me that it's OK and then tell me "you have to try even harder, you gotta fight for it". Often times we feel like giving up but more than often I've always though that if I can hold out a little longer, if I can try a litter bit harder maybe I'll get it, or maybe I'll get closer. That's always been me. I do have a problem listening to people and believing what they say I can and can't do but God and my mother always remind me that I got more left in the tank, that I'll figure out a way and that I'll get through it. 
You're so close to what you've been dreaming for, wishing for, hoping for. Don't give up before you get what's yours.

Note to self.

There's a time and a place and emotion for everything. Majority of the time we just end up picking the wrong emotions for that moment and it screws up the flow. Taking time to understand what you feel, why you feel it and and deciding on whether or not that feeling should be sustained is crucial.

Laymen's: sit down, shut up, think about it, chill pill. ✌

Training didn't go so well. This 585 was supposed to be my RPE 7. My mind was else where. Couldn't focus so I just left. I feel like it's important to pick and chose your battles because the war is more important . I'll get it next time

Squats from this past Saturday. 
A bunch of triples at 485ls wasnt feeling the best so. They all moved like poo. The Ohio power bar from rogue is definitely the most beautiful thing ever. One day I'll have one 😭. Guess who has squats tonight though?

My old boss reminded me how important it was to pray while you work and on your way to your goals. It's obvious that's what we should be doing but even with the workout; before I started I jus said a little prayer and ask God to give me strength to get through it because I wasn't feeling the best. 
When I was high school I worked for him cutting grass. I would be in sun 100+ and cut grass from sun up, to sun down and still go to track practice. I used that money to pay my phone bill and by some clothes because my mom couldn't get it for me. I've always busted my tail.

The point I'm trying to make is faith without works is dead. You have to work as hard as you pray and pray as hard as you would and now i understand that. I don't give me trainees short cuts and I don't give myself short cuts. Sometimes how you feel is really a lie and you have to remember where you're going not where you are. 
My uncle said when things get hard and your path seems like it's disappearing, you have to belive that you can re-define that path when you can see it and work anyways. Believe in yourself even when you dont.

You can't tell me nothing. God is good.

This my second attempt at 575. It didn't move as fast as I wanted. Afterwards I had a choice between 595lbs and 600lbs and didn't go to this meet to squat anything but 600. It was all heavy but it was also worth it.

I said this once before that I don't really like to post pictures like this. I've had several people tell me that they thought I was vain or stuck up. I don't really acknowledge my body too much at least not in that form or fashion. I've been smaller and weaker than everyone else and I just wanted to get bigger and stronger. I do wanna look 210 and still be around 181-185

Galatians 6:14 is tattooted on the side of @richfroning and hes a reason why i got mt "strength" tattoo on my ribs. It says. "As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world's interest in me has also died". All I can do Is thank God for my talents and gifts , even the ones he hasn't revealed to me yet because I've always prayed to be stronger and be stronger than the situations I've been in throughout my life and that's real. I just wanted to be able to handle whatever got thrown at me. All I can do is Glorify him with what I do.

For those beginning there fitness journey don't be fooled by instagram. It's full of garbage and trash. It clouds people's judgment and idea of what's real and what isnt. I've been lifting for 6 years almost 7 consistently. I am not on steroids. I do take supplements,(fish oil, preworkout etc) and I bust my tail everytime I hit the gym. If you keep quitting and you keep stopping because it's a little difficult you'll never see your full potential. I didn't wake up swole or anything but I knew if I pushed myself I would wake up with something. Just keep at everyone. Keep it honest and consistent  and you'll get there.

"As for me, may I never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of that cross, my interest in this world has been crucified, and the world's interest in me has also died". All I can do Is thank God for my talents and gifts , even the ones he hasn't revealed to me yet because I've always prayed to be stronger and be stronger than the situations I've been in throughout my life and that's real. I just wanted to be able to handle whatever got thrown at me. All I can do is Glorify him with what I do. For those beginning there fitness journey don't be fooled by instagram. It's full of garbage and trash. It clouds people's judgment and idea of what's real and what isnt. I've been lifting for 6 years almost 7 consistently. I am not on steroids. I do take supplements,(fish oil, preworkout etc) and I bust my tail everytime I hit the gym. If you keep quitting and you keep stopping because it's a little difficult you'll never see your full potential. I didn't wake up swole or anything but I knew if I pushed myself I would wake up with something. Just keep at everyone. Keep it honest and consistent and you'll get there. #HWPO  #MuscleManMarcus  #MakestrengthYourOnlyOption  #Fitness  #Strength  #Power  #BodyBuilding  #PowerLifting  #PowerBuilding  #Fitness  #FitnessInspiration  #FitnessMotivation  #FitSpo  #FitQuote  #Blackfitness  #CLTfitness  #83kg  #SquatMotivation  #Gym  #Training 
Saw this from @katieanne100 and I think it's something that everyone should consider. 
We don't know what people harbour in their hearts or what goes on in their life. Instagram and twitter apparently justify these things but of course that's not a reliant source. Stop hating back at people and praying back, more justice will be don't and you'll find solace in your heart.

Iight so I'm going to be honest. I had gas from 7:30 to right now. It was like extreme gas. I could really brace like I wanted to because my stomach was acting up and I did want to soil my self so I kept stopping at 4 so my last set I got 5 with 575lbs on deadlines which is a PR. That last rep stunk and that RPE changed real quick. Gotta get back to doing my lower body accessories especially for my glutes.

Bench press went great. Hit 350lbs for a single that did some back downs at 330. Started using my slingshot again so let's see what happens. I was just excited to not feel like crap

Finished with 100lbs dumbbell burnout only got 10. I used to get 15 but the goal is to get 25 by the end of the month. When I dropped the weight it bounced right into his gym back and crushed Tristan's phone smh. 
Today was a big win. Now chemistry here I come.

Most people think it's other people and not themselevs. Like there's nothing wrong and they don't need to improve on anything. Last time I checked the only perfect man was Jesus. 
There are things that we don't even notice that I'll make a huge difference in our everyday living. The way we treat people or even the way we think towards people. Shoot, even the way we think about ourselves! Don't go picking names and what not and you're too afraid to check and deal with yourself. That doesn't exclude me either!

Remember how I said yesterday was horrible...yeah today was worse. Was supposed to go RPE 8 for 5. 315lbs was all I could do and I barely made it to 4. I need a hug. Currently studying for a Chem test and I think I've created some form of anxiety. I need 2 hugs smh.  Praying that I can handle  these next 4 weeks of training, school, work and life.

One of my worst sessions yet. I was only able to squat. I felt so drained today I'm not sure what it was but I got through it. 
These sets of 8 with 410lbs were really light,  I just wasn't on it like I normally am. I almost passed out but I'm really able to brace my core. I might show you guys some exercises that will really help a lot because even though I felt like crap, 410 felt like 315. 
I will say this. Sometimes we psych ourselves out entirely too much. The weight is heavy because we think it's heavy and that's the problem. It all starts in your mind. God is still good.

#TBT to my comeback meet. It was great having my family and friends be there to support me. It was a rough getting to this point. People fail to realize i don't get to lift for a living but I was able to conquer the semester and a bunch of other things going on. God willing, I can't wait to compete at #USAPLRawNationals2017 !! #HWPO

Nothing special to tonight. Wasn't feeling the most energized, these days seems like they're getting longer an longer. When you have a goal in mind or something you want to accomplish you have to think  of it as getting paid.  Whether it be school work, workout ,whatever if you don't something because you don't feel like it; you're going to be broke. That's not how I want to be.

Front Squat Top Set 365lbsx4 @ RPE 7

AMRAP OHP 165lbsx6 @ RPE 10. Shoulder/elbow feeling a little wonky so I had to settle for that.

Finished with rows. I think all of this consistent heavy rowing is really helping my deadlift form because I have to keep position. Might get straps so I can do more.

You have to believe that no matter your circumstances,  they won't effect your outcome. Just pray, grind and believe it. You waiver but that's normal when everything feels like it's crashing down. Keep it pushing. God is good.
