Let me put on my swole professor's cap for a moment. The #squat is often used as a metaphor in the world of training. It can represent anything from a monumental collapse under a half ton of iron to a deliriously beautiful apotheosis (look it up) in which you transform into something greater than human for the briefest of moments. Plus, I don't care, dude... If you're not squatting, you're not going to get stronger on any other movement. The heavier you go, the more likely it is that things can go wrong and you could DIE. Your body knows this and, if you survive, you will get stronger. Period. So, my advice on Squats? Fucking survive them and you'll conquer life. #sundaymotivation #wisdom #embracefear

Counting down the days until I start my second prep.‍️ I am so ready to step on stage again this year!!

In a world so big and beautiful yet so cruel and demanding... In a society filled with egoistic traditional morals, deeming those who aspire to be something more than what is expected from them are shamed upon... In a life with every burden weighing on you to make the right choices, to be "normal," to do something "realistic" and shuns optimism... In a place where our words become our thoughts because society says our words are not politically correct, not worthy of being heard, not logical...where our hearts desire something we can not have because in a world so big there is so little love to be had... In a place so large everyone should be welcome, yet people who are different are pushed out, forgotten about, mistreated and neglected.... in a world where we are so robotically told to work a 9-5 job Monday through Friday and endure the miserable hatred and rush of society to go home to sulk about how much we hate our jobs....In a place where no one assesses happiness anymore, we are measured by how much money we acquire, the size home we have and how professional our careers are... But when is someone going to ask us what our dreams are... what do we want to achieve, what do we aspire to be...what would you want the most out of life even if it was such a far stretch it seems unrealistic? I can't remember someone asking me what my dreams were..as I grew older and all of these "traditional" careers were put into career fairs and assembly's, it was woven into our brains that what we wanted as a child was not realistic. What if as you got older you created new goals and new dreams as you molded into who you are now...but society has told you, that's not enough, it won't work, so you brush off your dreams like they never meant something to you...In a world so big and so beautiful I dare you to aspire to be something so big and so beautiful, to create something so great, to give your heart into everything you love and you set your goals high and you chase them, you take that dream and you expose it... talk about it, shout to the world, express your love.... because in a world so big and so beautiful anything is possible.I dare you not to conform, be an EXIL

30 years from now, I’ll look back at 2018 as a tipping point in my life. There are some significant events taking place throughout this year; some I have control over, some I do not. Of equal importance will be not only my decision making, but how I react to events over which I have no control. It is crucial that I revisit the purpose I have for my life, the kind of man I want to be, the impact I want my life to have on others. All of this starts with self-reflection and self-awareness. #fitness #abs #hardwork #fitspo #biceps #quads #hamstrings #squat #bench #deadlift #oklahoma #oklahomacity #okc #tulsa #npc #ifbb #wnbf #wpa #ipe #ocb #nutrition #suplements #1stphorm #corenutritionals #triad #psychology #future #fulfillment #destiny #purpose

After a car accident left me suffering with 7 injuries down my spine and 2 brain injuries. I lost my jobs, had to leave the military and was unable to return to college. After YEARS of cognitive / physical rehab I came to the conclusion that my struggles have made me STRONGER and through CONSISTENCY and a strong BELIEF along with my doctors and my AMAZING support system I have overcome what at the time left me feeling lost and ready to give up. Moral of the story. BELIEVE in yourself and NEVER EVER stop PUSHING! I hope to make a POSITIVE impact and hopefully have the oppourtunity to inspire other STRONG WOMEN with a sponsorship through @angelcompetitionbikinis #fitfam #iamfit #ocb #wnbf #npc #ifbb #bodybuilding #bodybuilder #coach #trainer #fitness #eatclean #traindirty #traininsane #motivation #inspiration #driven #overcome #neversettle #discipline #goals #aesthetic #athlete #sponsoredathlete

Portrait mode sucks on the iPhone 7+ lmao but here is a tricep and slight booty pop for this fine Sunday 🤷‍️ Read coach @hannahbeefit 's caption today and have paid v close attention to my surroundings in the gym today and noticed (you guessed it) a major lack of intensity. It's great when a new sense of awareness clicks in and you push harder for your arm/ab workout, though. For real, you need to work like you're in second place constantly if you want to get better. Lift heavy and push yourself to be stronger. Eventually, you gon' get stronger Go figure! • • • • #ocb #ocbfigure #figureprep #figurecompetitor #competitionprep #bodybuilding #femalebodybuilder #fitness #fitnessmotivation #beyourbest #workhard #trainhard #chestday #cardio #prep #naturalbodybuilding #personaltrainer #girlswithmuscle #girlswholift #preplife #strongnotskinny #iifym #workout #circuittraining #fitfam #godisgood #moevadasfitness
