In defense of booty shorts

February 20, 2015

On Motivation

February 12, 2015

I’m part of a couple different ladies-only lifting groups on Facebook; I love them both because they are primarily made up of women who understand the importance of strength training and fueling for performance, from strong(wo)men, to powerlifters, to Olympic weightlifters to crossfitters, to those who work out at home or at a traditional gym.

Decide that you want it

February 8, 2015

My First Olympic Weightlifting Meet

January 27, 2015

I did it. I am now an official weightlifter, with an official score, at an official sanctioned weightlifting meet! For the short story: Walked in with extreme fear and intimidation, made my weight class I was hoping for, missed both of my opener lifts, cried a little, didn’t try to PR, took home some bronze, […]

Making weight when you don’t care about weight

January 23, 2015

I have been a bit quiet on the blog lately, but alas, the world of eat, sleep, WOD, repeat, has continued to go on. When I last checked in, it was an update on my current Outlaw Way training, which has been temporarily shifted to Outlaw Barbell in prepping for my first Olympic Weightlifting meet. A […]
