Just trying to load the shoulder girdle progressively. - Yes I am wearing my walking trainers 🀣🀣they are the only shoes I have currently where I can lift and have my insoles in; as I can finally introduce myself to training with my insoles in Whoop!! - Excited for my new deadlift shoes to arrive ❀❀❀❀❀ - #passionfortheprocess #alwayslearning  #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD #strengthandconditioningcoach   #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind
First bench session in 3 weeks, tested out my hip which not too bad still quite abit of work to do but progress is being made πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ - Here is a top set of 5 at 73kg definitely not executed the best but lots of technical que's to work on. Sets definitely got better as the session went on, getting in the groove and loved the new addition of pin press ❀❀❀ - Thank you @rhayes_strengthcoach for being there to coach me through these sessions!

Been loving experimenting with this exercise; seated over head press, top set of 7 reps with 42.5kg. - Embracing this off season and working on as many weaknesses as I can and fine tuning some technical faults. @rhayes_strengthcoach Giving me freedom to try many new things ❀❀ - Working very hard from a rehab perspective also. Now my body is able to rest and recover properly myself and @adam_uclan_physio are able to be very specific, focused, and shall we say thorough during treatment. I felt pretty exhausted after today's physio session, but in a great way! Been working with Adam at uclan for over a year now and couldn't recommend him enough to any athlete. Thank you as always! - -  #strengthandconditioningcoach  #offseasongains #passionfortheprocess #alwayslearning #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
RECOVERY WEEK! Spent this week recovering from all England's comp and making sure my body has a proper rest. Doing as much rehab as I can for my shoulder and hip but mostly much needed REST! Here is a snippet from my session on Friday very hamstring dominant and all with my new insoles for my feet so lots of new things. - - The GHD's and good mornings have always been exercises I have struggled to incorporate for multiple reasons; mainly overactive spinal erectors, poor pelvic movement and simply very weak hamstrings!! Hoping to finally incorporate these into training and build up strength in my posterior chain, FINALLY! Very excited for this as it means my movement at my pelvis is making progress 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁 - - #consistencyiskey #believeinthejourney  #strengthandconditioningcoach   #passionfortheprocess #alwayslearning #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
All England's comp summary; I did exactly what I went there to do! Made weight at 56.8kg, actually ate alot of food to fuel the day (which I normally struggle to do so much on comp day) stayed calm and incontrol of my nerves better than I ever have done and got hyped at the right times! All of this I couldn't be happier with I am so flipping proud of my self. - Ended the day with a Gold medal πŸ₯‡, 412.5kg total and a 480wilks πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ Both all time PB's. And enjoyed every second !! - Squat 157.5kg (All time PB) - Bench 92.5kg (All time PB) - Second attempt Deadlift 162.5kg - I didn't take my third deadlift due to a sublaxation of my sternoclavicular joint 3 weeks ago causing lots of shoulder pain when I deadlift, so we new going in to the comp I was only going to take 162.5kg to reduce the risk of a dislocation. - Unfortunatly things havnt been plain sailing with injuries and niggles, which is very rarley is when you are trying to be the best possibly athlete you can be. Its just about making the most of what you have everyday! - A massive massive thank you to the best team an athlete could ask for; @rhayes_strengthcoach @joesadler97 @adam_uclan_physio I can't thank you guys enough for all your continuous help support and expertise and I am beyond grateful everyday! - Time to enjoy the victory, then back to the drawing board for the next journey! - #passionfortheprocess #keepmovingforward #strengthandconditioningcoach #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

My immediate reaction to this set was ahhhhhhhhh frustration because I new i didn't execute it as well as I could. However, pulled it back nice and quick and thought about it objectively and new my stance wasn't wide enough. Silly moo!!

Friday's squats session went really well, hip still isn't perfect and pelvis still not quite corrected but thanks to @adam_uclan_physio as always; it is making great progress !! Avoided high bars for about 2 weeks (ish) to let things settle down in my hip; so to come back and hit these numbers and to have maintained my new technique shows to me the progress I have made in multiple areas and came out of this session extremely happy. Some times it pays off to be stubborn πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ 😍😍πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ🐘🐘 - - β–ͺhigh bar back squat 141kg top single β–ͺheaviest set of 5 for high bar @130kg - - #strengthandconditioningcoach Β #bandeddistractions #consistency #rehab #highbarsquats #squatvolume #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

First squat session in a week; coming back from a deload.

Wasn't feeling too hot on my deadlift day this week @black_country_barbell lots of sitting and travelling are certainly not beneficial to lifting!! - However, very happy to have gone in and put my all in and come out feeling positive! People talk alot about mindset and how important it is and I am a huge advocate for this. It's ok to not feeling 100% and a bit sluggish going into the gym, work, college or what ever it might be. But knowing you put 100% effort into what you want to achieve should be goal for every day in and outside of the gym. - β–ͺDL Top Single 157.5kg β–ͺDL 3x3 @ 140kg β–ͺPause DL 3x3 @125kg β–ͺRow 3x7 @70kg - - #strengthandconditioningcoach Β  #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

More squats from yesturday, Top triple of 132kg πŸ˜€ Definitely had my feet to narrow meaning the bar was infront of my centre of mass causing me to do a weird swing at the bottom due to my heels rising. - 2x8 @112.5kg solid sets and corrected my form thus making them more efficient. #squatvolume #lovesquats #lovepowerlifting #newjourney Β #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
Been finding myself reflecting alot today after I hit a great PB at the end of a high volume squat session . - Low bar pause- 120kg x6 - 12 months ago I was unable to do a body weight squat or even a hip hinge without being in crippling pain due to all sorts of imbalances, dysfunctions, and tightness. All of which had been on going since 2012 but 2017 was when I made a real tangabale break through! - - The past 12 months has been quite challenging at times and life will continue to be challenging and eventful it's all part of the journey but I am so pleased with the progress I have made and the mental fortitude I have gained! - - Massive thank you to everyone who has been so supportive and understanding but a massive thank you to @rhayes_strengthcoach the most outstanding, talented and humbble coach I have ever met. And another huge thank you to @adam_uclan_physio who has been a real massive part of my athletic endevours the past 10 months. Could not recommend his practical knowledge, experience and humility enough. - - #reflection Β #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

Many great things are coming from my off season; its been Filled with happiness and plenty of frustration.

Unfortunatley yesturdays sumo deadlift session didn't go to plan due to a very sore hip, which is very painful in the sumo position. Today's session started sumo and again a painful hip... however extremely happy I got through the session plan just conventional instead. - 145kg Double Hook Grip - Block pulls; 130kg hook grip x6 ; 137.5kg x6 which if I'm not mistaken is a huge PB!! - - - - #believeyouareachampion #beliefispower #newjourney Β #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
Tuesday's bench session feeling positive strength is on its way back up after illness. One of the great things about being female is the ability to recover quickly from upper body sessions however as a result of this it becomes challenging to sustain adaptations. - β–ͺincline bench rep PB 52.5kg for 6. Touch and go. Really wanted to push this movement and OHP in up coming training again... - β–ͺcomp bench 82.5kg double> 78kg 3x4 68kg 1x8 - Thanks you @rhayes_strengthcoach for being my virtual coach for the morning ❀❀❀!! ------------------------------------------------------------- #newlessons #newjourney Β #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
Very pleased with today's session (and rembered to record). - β–ͺLow bar practice 140kg double unfortunately heels came up where I didn't sit back enough and didn't focus on pushing my knees out. But happy it moved smoothly and beginning to get used to the new mental que's. - β–ͺ high bar volume last set shown 108kg x8. Best set of squats I have done in a long time !! My heels stayed on the floor yaaaaaaaay. Sitting back more is becoming more comfortable so very happy. - β–ͺDeficit deadlifts- 132.5kg Triple and 120kg 2x6.

My new low bar position is coming along, very happy with this session 138kg for a single, followed by 2x4 @130kg finishing with low bar paused squats 1x5 @100kg , 107.5kg and 115kg (video shown). Very much smashing through my "ugly zone" (the pressure principle Dave Alred). Every rep just pure focus on feeling the movement and my mental que's: - β–  Forward lean β–  bar lower on the back - aiming for rear delts β– sit back β–  knees out There are inconsistencies when we try new ways of doing things in all areas of our lives, its learning from the mistakes and rememering the times that were successful.

Unfortunately training has been quite inconsistent these past 2 weeks due to illness and hip niggles (which have been present since nationals). A massive thank you to @rhayes_strengthcoach for your usual supportive self ❀❀❀ - The hip issue is fascinating; the right side of my pelvis is moving into a neutral position as opposed to the normal anterior angle of about 15 degrees. As I have lordosis and a natural anterior pelvic tilt my body certainly does not enjoy these new found position it keeps finding its self in. It means that during hip flexion the pelvis can't posteriorly rotate and elevate the whole structure just elevates but thanks to @adam_uclan_physio as always, the issue has been found and is being addressed. A massive thank you to this man the most talented and knowledgeable physio I have ever met, can't thank you enough!! The human body is so interesting and these little blips only aids my knowledge and makes me a better coach and athlete. - Here is some sumo deadlift practise from Thursday, definitely not feeling as snappy and powerful as normal but so happy to have not felt any hip pain !! - Enjoy the moment, live for the process !! #newlessons #newjourney  #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

HAPPY BOXING DAY EVERYBODY !! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ - Been working alot on reforming my squats including: β—‡staying on my heels more (brought insoles for this) β—‡keeping my elbows down β—‡ adjusting my stance to see what happens to my knee tracking. β—‡adjusting my gaze - All of which has certainly been quite a challenge and will continue to be a trail and error journey but today was the first time in a while that I felt a bit more in a groove. High bar squats; 132.5kg for top set of 3. Followed by 3x6 on 120kg. - Massive thank you to @rhayes_strengthcoach for being an amazing and patient coach ❀❀❀ - #nationals2017 #juniors #athletes #newlessons #newjourney Β #sbdapparell #sponsoredathlete #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

The reason for this strange angle is so I can assess the movement at my heels. Introduced the insoles to my low bar squats yesturday mixed emotions with them for now but going to persevere with them! Alot of me does feel they did help regardless of the inconsistency on the sets of 7. After squatting with my heels coming up for a long time definitely can't expect an overnight treatment. Just determined to crack this.... lifting is like a jigsaw puzzle; sometimes you got to search for the right piece that fits 😁😁😁😁 #athletes #newlessons #newjourney   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #sponsoredathlete #sbdapparell #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD

Currently in off season phase of training and very happy with how these moved and felt!! 120kg for sets of 6 🐘🐘 Anyone else feel stronger from a deficit?? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” #athletes #newlessons #newjourney Β  #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
Squat fail from junior nationals 162.5kg, I was extremely disappointed with this as I knew I had more than enough strength for this weight. I remember unracking it and it feeling weightless gives me goose bumps thinking about it. Love this sport so much❀❀❀ However, something happened a few degrees out of the hole and that is I go on to my toes so much that i get pitched forward and the bar begins to have more leverage than I do and I just fall forward. In the video provided you can see my heels and how much they come off the floor!! Scary!! Massive thanks to the spotters here!! This is an issue that I have had my entire lifting career and I am determined to over come it. Unfortunately it's not a flexibility issue, it's a structural issue where my ankle joint sit more forwards and restricts dorsi flexion. I am now experimenting with a tiny bit wider stance after changing to narrower earlier this year which has been massively beneficial to my hip and back health.  The idea of the wider stance being to try and get my knees open more and keep my heels on the floor. Video provided also; with new stance (high bar) from yesturday 110kg for multiple sets of 8 really focusing on this new queing. If anyone has any suggestions/ thoughts/ comments on this or even have a similar issue please comment or PM me to have a further discussion. #athletes #newlessons #newjourney   #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
Finally got my hands on these and had chance to upload them from my recent competition; junior national powerlifting championships. Here are my 3 bench press attempts (other lifts to follow). 1st attempt 85kg 2nd attempt 90kg 3rs attempts 92.5kg which unfortunately I got 2 red lights which was a contraversal decision. Overall this year I am incredibly proud of my bench press performance both strength and execution wise. I am consistently achieving efficient bar path, bar placement and optimal leg drive timing all of which have limitations and obstacles in the past. Excited for the future and the journey ahead!! #athletes #ambition #goals Β #nationaljuniorchampionships #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
After a week off, consisting of; relaxing, eating and yoga back to it yesturday with new aims and goals. I am very happy to have been able to perform warm ups for squat and deadlift without a belt, pain free for the first time in 2 years, so incredibly pleased with that. Something that has been in the pipe line for sometime now is sumo deadlift, here is my first proper session trying to achieve a good position I went up to 130kg for a triple at RPE7 beltless (first time in a very long time going to this weight beltless) and then 135kg also for a triple at RPE7. We then decided to try a single on 140kg which shocked me how fast it moved... All of which were performed with hookgrip back to my Olympic weightlifting roots. Again extremely happy with this first day back on my next journey.... #theconversionfinallybegins #newjourney #newgoals #letsdothis #menandwomenwholift #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #GBPF #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
So a few people who I have spoken to will know I am very disappointed with my performance over the weekend at the national junior championships. I had many goals and aspirations for this competition and unfortunatley was unable to actualise some of them. Of course I am ecstatic that I retained my British title against some fantastic talented competition. I just can't help but feel disappointed by not displaying to myself the true progress I have made. I came into this comp feeling the healthiest, and strongest I have ever felt in my lifting career which was evident from the session I had a week out from competition where I gained an easy 407kg training total consisting of a 156kg SQUAT, 90kg BENCH and 161KG DEADLIFT. But unfortunately this does not always transpire to the platform. I know there was some adversity through out the day where some stressful situations did arise for everyone. There were mistakes made from my end which I hold myself 100% accountable for and will cover in a separate video/post along with the competition videos. These mistakes show where I can improve in multiple areas which is always a positive to take away for any athlete to get better improve and come back fighting!! Ultimately it's ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them and keep pushing to improve. But it's also important to enjoy the positives and the achievements even if it didn't go exactly how you planned. #lifeandlifting #menandwomenwholift #nationaljuniorchampionships #GBPF #scottishpowerlifting #strengthathlete #powerlifting #onlinecoaching #championsmind #squat #deadlift #benchpress #olympiclifting #keepmovingforward #uclanstrengthandconditioing #uclanphysio #northwestpowerlifting #Ipf #SBD
