One Lift At A Time

Currently getting stronger.

Dedicated to powerlifting and anything else I find interesting.

Light squats, still deload week so not as much volume. 5x2@205 (last rep 3 sec pause), felt good. Thank God for everything, including for the grace to do what I love. Loved training with my teammates @mspowerlifter42 @belizianintellect @bullusapl, we did good guys πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ˜Š #meetprep #squats #powerlifting #training (at Gold’s Gym Largo)

One of my better squat days today, deload weekπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ everything went good. Dealing with tender right knee, and a bruised left knee😒😒😒, feels like my knees have a bullseye on them. Squats 3@155, 2@195, 235, 255, 275, 2x1@235. Still can’t heavy in any footwear. Finished with hamstring work and abs. Thank God for everything, loved training with my teammates @belizianintellect @mspowerlifter42 @bullusapl. Have a wonderful week everyone. #meetprep #powerlifting #squats (at Gold’s Gym Largo)

255, Last set before max today. Liked the depth on this, dealing with uncertainty since I missed 385 on the deadlift on Friday, its funny how one miss can make me question all the work I’ve put in since May. I’m sure aware of my tendency to overdo things when something doesn’t go the way I want it to go, and that’s why I have a coach. So I’m learning to sit on my hands, and trust the process. Btw, I still can’t squat heavy with footwear on😒😒😒 #powerlifting #squats #meetprep (at Gold’s Gym Largo)

Yesterday’s accessory Snatch Grip deads 5@165 #powerlifting #training (at Gold’s Gym Largo)

Today was good day, weather felt great, the atmosphere with my training partners @mspowerlifter42 @bullusapl felt awesome. Squats: 2@185, 2@225, 3@255, 265, 2x2@225 (paused, video). Finished with some hamstring and ab work. Thank God for sustaining me and the grace to do what I love. Trained with my sister @akonkeawo today, all in all everything went good. @belizianintellect you were missed. Have a wonderful week everyone. (at Gold’s Gym Largo)

Light deadlifts and squat day, it was okay. Did some pausish def. deadlifts @185 +chains. Back Squats: 3@135, 3@185, 2x3@225. Front Squats: 3@135, 3x1@185. Finished with some heavy back work. Thank God for sustaining me through this week, it wasn’t my easiest week (training wise) but I got through by His Grace. Loved training with @bullusapl (even though he took the deadlift bar from me)😑, missed @belizianintellect @mspowerlifter42. Looking forward to what next week brings, have a wonderful weekend everyone😊😊😊 #meetprep #deadlift #squats #babysteps (at Gold’s Gym Largo)

Light squats and bench work yesterday. I made a mistake of trying to bench first, and it sucked.. Squats: 5x3@195. Finished up with some bench accessory. Thank God for everything, loved training with @bullusapl @mspowerlifter42 and missed @belizianintellect. Enjoy the rest of the week everyone..#training #babysteps #squats #meetprep (at Gold’s Gym Largo)

$15 for what would cost me $5 if I made it myself, I guess someone has to pay for the packaging. (at Sports Authority Landover)

Yester-night activities with @klassiklady and aunt till after midnight, also ate so much food😍😍😍😍. Woke up with a big headache and body aches😩😩😩

Pulled 380 for today’s max, wanted another single but my aunt (who goes with me to the gym on Fridays) said her nerves couldn’t take it, and that I almost gave her hypertension (if you’re Nigerian you would understand)😒😒😒😩😩😩 Finished with front squats and back stuff. Thank God for everything. Have a wonderful weekend everyone #powerlifting #deadlift #training #babysteps (at Gold’s Gym Largo)
