THIS. 100 Percent this. Towards the end of February of last year I tweaked my knee (which was already in the throes of going downhill) doing a kB thruster. I haven’t done anything that involves a lot of impact to my knees since including my favorite, box jumps. After a Monday workout that involved jumping over a rower after a burpee i wondered if I was ready for box jumps since the impact of that jump didn’t hurt...so in warmup after a little panic, I tried one..boom, like riding a bike. So in the workout I did them to a lower height until the last two rounds. Add hang squat cleans to that and we are working our way back! It has been slow, and steady but I’ve appreciated the value of going back to basics, queues from my coaches and just listening to my body. This workout was horribly long and a lot of volume but I’m leaving the gym a happy kid today. More progress!!!!! 💪🏽🤘🏽 #crossfit #crossfitgirls #viejastrong #crossfit970 #oldladykneescantstopme #keeponkeepingon
The @chef.claire cooking up some work!⠀
"A day of #blondemoments - misloaded the bar, then took away weight on only one side. Struggling with knee collapse and my left foot caving. Shoes & sleeves solved the problem and I finished 10x1’s at 125 kilos, which is what I finished with at Nationals. Still need to work on breathing... I’m holding my breath/bracing until lock out. However, these felt good today... 💯 better than October, so I’ll take that as a win. #dayofthedeads #deadlift #deads #powerlifting #powerliftingwomen #gwpl #viejastrong"
Amazing transformation for my former client @kaliko_lkklothing - this is what dedication looks like. It’s been a good hard year, but you did it Paulette! You’re amazing. I’m so proud! @babautam thanks for taking the reigns and really walking her through her final two months! #viejastrong #bewaretheoldlioness Posted @withrepost • @kaliko_lkklothing Warning...long post ahead 🤣
When my sister @garagefitmomma posted this before and after, my first thought was "Man, if this don't shock and amaze @themarioquezada what will I do" 😂 jk But I am thankful to Mario for helping me to love lifting heavy again and being there for me in the beginning 🙂
And if it wasn't for @babautam, I don't know how I would have got through the last 2 months where I saw some serious changes. Ray really helped me dial in on my diet and showed me new ways to train. And he connected us with one of the most amazing women I now know @ironcandyfitness who not only helped us posing, but showed us what confidence looks like.
Then my awesome family and friends who cheered, supported and continued to love me through my moods and craziness 🙂
But, of course, it would have never started if my crazy sister didn't suggest for our sister bonding to enter a bikini competition. We do some pretty crazy things together and this one really helped us bond as we spent a lot of time together...training, posing, training 🙂 So, thank you EVERYONE!!! 😘 ¡Viva La Vieja! 💪🏽🏋🏽♀️👱🏼♀️🦁
