The key is to stay focused, no matter what.
If you’re a Latter-day Saint who is trying to keep the Spirit in your home, this is reality: It’s more dangerous to have a television in your house than it is a gun. At least the gun is locked up and out of sight. If you’re broadcasting 95% of what is on television today into your home, you can rest assured that the Spirit has split...and that’s dangerous. You might as well break out the pistol and play a game of Russian Roulette as to sit and watch that window into the Great and Spacious Whore House. Don’t kid yourself. It’s that bad.

The inaugural Albury Wodonga and my 27th marathon conquered in 3:38:29, 18th overall again 😂😂. This was an event that had a level of symbolism for me, my mum is moving away from the area after this weekend, I recently ceased visiting the area for work and now I’ve completed the first ever (and my last) marathon in the towns where I grew up. I got to run past some of my old haunts and reminisce as each step brought me closer to the end of a chapter. I’m glad to have finished in a decent time but it would be remiss of me not to highlight my overall disappointment with the event. There were no medals presented at the end of the race (organisers only advised participants of this the day before the run and will be posting them out at an undisclosed future date), the event really lacked polish and atmosphere (hit and miss MC announcing some finishers names but not others as people crossed the line, Free BBQs that just never happened etc). On a positive note, it was awesome to have my beautiful daughter Hazel present to cheer me across another finish line 👸🏼❤️👴🏻.
Swipe across for all the pics and a few videos.

Headstands are the precursor to crow and handstands! It's been a couple months since starting my journey and I think Im starting to get the hang of inversions 💯💯 check out the link in my bio to see what I think is great practice and starting out! 🔥🔥🔥
I’ve never competed in a power lifting competition, nor a physique show. When I train dead lifts I generally don’t go above 225 because of the curvature in my spine(it’s not that bad, just play it safe). Today for the lift off I challenged my self to pull 375lb not knowing what to expect and was able to get away with pulling 410lbs.
For my squat I hit 385 and 250 on bench press. (Been working on cleaner reps with less weight)
Today was all about raising awareness and fundraising for a beautiful cause that’s become very dear to my heart. I put every once of strength and effort into my lifts just as I did in organizing this benefit, and I am beyond happy with the results. Thank you again to everybody who supported us and cheered me on in my lifts.
P.S. —> HUGE shoutout to team Havoc who were the best spotters/rackers and helped throughout the entire powerlifting experience. They know their stuff and have incredible equipment, insane knowledge in strength training, and the most elite athletes. They even have the trophy’s to back it up 😏

Sometimes or even all the time, you just have to step back and focus on only you. You have to focus on everything about you and everything you need or want to improve. No one else matters. I say this simply because it's true. Just like I said in a few of my posts, fuck all the outside noise and negative energy that you have coming your way. Do you and worry about you.
Give it all you got. Do your best. And keep stretching yourself constantly outside of your comfort zone. It’s the only way to see what you are made of! But also, it’s the only way to close the gap from where you are and where you could actually be in life.🙌🏾
💢Only man you should worry about is the man staring back at you every time you look in the mirror 💢
