Weekend Recap & Other Stuff

Happy Monday!
Hope ya'll had a great weekend! It was hot and sunny here, but I'm not complaining. Perfect for floating in the pool all weekend! :)
I started the weekend off with deadlifts and a million prowler pushes!
 I'm switching to sumo deads for a little while to see if I can increase my weight without jacking up my back, which always seems to happen any time I go over 200lbs on conventional deadlifts. I've never done sumo style consistently, but I'm going to stick with it and see if it works better for me.
This was 190 for 5.
Which style of deadlifts do you all prefer?

I am sad to say that I finished "Divergent"...I didn't want it to end. But I'm excited to watch the movie and then read the next book!
We had a yummy "treat meal" this weekend -pulled pork, corn fries, and then ice cream for dessert! All those carbs don't count on leg day. ;)

Went to church Saturday and then played some putt-putt afterwards.

Took a pretty ride in the Jeep Sunday evening.

Today I had a great upper body workout -was able to get 4 ring muscle ups in a row, which surprised me because I only do them every now and them, and it's always just one at a time. I don't know if there is really any point in doing muscle ups if you don't compete in CrossFit, but I just like to know that I can do them...and you never know, I may decide one day to do a CrossFit workout again one of these days...  
I love getting stronger and improving on things! I know I'm not the strongest or the biggest, but I'm bigger and stronger than I used to be, and that's all that matters!


  1. congrats on all of your progress girl! love that video too! thank you so much for sharing - also really really enjoyed that hang clean video this morning as i did them today too so it was nice to have your video to look at :)

  2. Trap bar deadlifts are what I stick with these days, and I love 'em! Good work on the muscle ups...I need to find a gym with rings so I can give it a shot. I'm hoping chin-up/pull-up strength translates pretty well, haha.

    Also. Holy obliques, woman!!

    1. I love trap bar deads! May have to go back to those.
      Thank you! They definitely took a lot of practice working on the transition, but pullups and dip strength definitely helps.
      And thanks! They come out every now and then, but when they do, I make sure to take a pic. ;)
