Posted @withrepost • @discover_training 😍😍😍 New @kustomkitgymequipment Combo Rack at JP's Gym. Built to @theipf competition specifications it's about as high quality as it gets for squats and bench press: Solid bench, steel rollers, adjustable weight levers (so you can vary the height without removing the bar), safety catchers and quick conversion into squat stands with a tilt system for wider-gripping athletes. A real Rolls-Royce piece of kit.
A gym is a workshop more than a classroom. Sure you'll learn stuff from others but you're building your own thing, not theirs. Even a piece of kit like this isn't just for the elite, considering how easy it is to adjust the setup it can also function to make barbell squats and bench presses more accessible or comfortable to some trainees. So this is another fantastic tool in the toolbox (along with the equally awesome prone-row) to help you build the best, strongest version of yourself @jpsgym whether you're a powerlifter or a postman.

“Every journey begins with a single step. We just have to have patience.” – Milly Thompson
One thing I stand firm on is to trust the process. It may move slow or pretty quickly. You have to treasure each moment and enjoy it. I went from the 25’s to hitting the 60’s for two. The real goal is to make these 60’s my high volume working sets. Either or I’m coming to show women you can be built like a lady but as strong as the hulk.
Your past doesn’t define you.
Your present is temporary.
Your future is as strong as your imagination.
Go hard ladies

Decided to go heavy today on the last week of my 4 week block. Hit 190kg for 3 reps (video 1) and then decided to try a 1RM of 195kg (video 2). So I made the 195kg for 1 rep! Tried a second, but I’d exhausted myself with the other working sets but extremely happy 😁
I know I only squat until by thighs are parallel to the floor, and many people (especially powerlifters) squat deeper. However, as I’m training for rugby, in my opinion I’m able to get away with it as I’m trying to build strength for the tower of power position, where the knees will never go past 90 degrees. Thought I’d just mention it to explain why I squat the way I do.
Also very happy with the fact I managed it without straps or a lifting belt!

Some weeks I have abs, other weeks I have I don’t because I’ve eaten a lot of cake and mother nature’s a twat 🙃 things that don’t change depending on ab status is that I can still hit low 6min mile intervals and can 10 rep 60kg for my back squat and deadlift. Visible abs don’t mean shit. Skinny doesn’t mean superior. Bingo wings and muffin bellies actually equate to cake and happiness - fact. .

[Eng] I am happy cause the weather in Holland is soo good these days! Since ive been back from Thailand its been so grey and rainy so I could really use some sun rn☀️
[NL 🇱🇺] Wie is nog meer blij met het weer aankomend weekend EINDELIJK ZON HALLELUJAH😍 Wat gaan jullie doen
Same leggings, different legs 🤷🏼♀️
Left is 2016, right is today. Progress takes time!
176 x 3 today 🔥🔥
Finally have a solid bench set up and I couldn’t be happier. Everything felt great today for the first time in a while. Bench has been a hit or miss this prep but I finally feel like I have it down. Also woke up at 145.8 in the first time in forever 😈
385x3, 405x1 and 430x1
Holy fuck did squats suck ass today. Legitimately the most disappointing lift so far in prep.
I was supposed to have 3x3 drop sets at 385 after but I got one rep in, had to rack it, and then barely fucking hit the next two and said fuck it, cut them and moved on.
Something’s off in my back in my lower trap area, not sure what or how but I guess that explains my inability to get comfortable under the bar today.
Moved onto deadlifts and those went alright at least lol.
Not every day is a win, I was pretty fuckin frustrated with these today but it’s just one day.
Hopefully whatever is off in my back gets with the program and we can get back to work because these all should have been reasonably easy for me today and I had to go RPE PEE for them.

I still suck at paused pulls but here’s 320 for a 3x6(i forgot what i was doing evidently on the first rep) then larsen press
I have wrapped up 8 weeks of challenging work outs with my personal trainer 6 days each week😍😍😍. So happy I made the commitment. I learned so much physically and mentally! I have been celebrating with lots and lots of yummy foods the past couple of weeks 🤣. My next commitment is to spend 30 days focusing on healthy living with Arbonne. My body has been shouting at me in different ways to make changes and I’m super excited because Arbonne works! Stay tuned for all the positive results 💃🏻!!!!
