Vlad Alhazov in 2017 became the first man in history, in a sport that dates back over 52 years to 1966, to squat 500kg raw. He is travelling to Australia from Israel to compete at ProRawX at the Arnolds, and will attempt to break his record on Sunday the 18th of March. DON'T MISS THIS !!! For tickets, see link in bio
Long post. I appreciate you reading. To think where I was, where I am and the future ahead just proves sometimes our struggles are what feeds our greatness. The years before strongman had left me feeling dead inside, not caring and running myself into the ground trying to hold our lives together. Toxic relationships, a young mom, finishing up nursing school, losing my mom, living paycheck to paycheck to the extent of standing in line every week at the Salvation Army Food Pantry to have something on the table and so many other things that made me feel worthless inside. Things seriously just sucked. I needed something to wake me up. I came across Strongman and it provided an outlet that did just that. First pic was where it all began. March 2014 out in the parking lot of the WAR running farmers with Mike. Now 4 years later here I am going to The Arnold to compete among the strongest in the world. We all have a journey each one different from the other but we all are going for the same outcome. Achieve the unbelievable, find out what really makes us stand out and how we survive. Its not just about how strong physically you are but what it takes mentally to be great too. Day in and day out you push the limits. Some days are rough but others you can't believe how exciting the ride is and what might come around the corner next. Did I ever think I would be here, honestly NO. I was just excited to be able to call Strongman My Sport, My Hobby and take in the benefits of being strong and healthy. Going to the Arnold is a huge achievement and one I haven't taken for granted. I am looking forward to seeing what I am capable of along with the potential growth I have to come. I have been fortunate enough to have unbelievable support, be it my training partners, my gym, my little family and people near and far that stand by myside with the same beliefs of being great. If you are struggling in life, need motivation, looking to get healthy or whatever your reason step into the strongman life and see how it can help you. I did and have gained so much from it. Love, being healthy and mental toughness that has helped me through the stressors we call LIFE. #mystory

Tomorrow marks 1 week out. I’ve never felt this good going into a meet before. I’m usually a disaster, both physically and emotionally in the weeks before a meet. This time around, all I feel physically is minor fatigue. Normally, before a meet, I feel really anxious and usually have a meltdown (aka I cry. A lot. At home. At the gym. At work). Surprisingly, I haven’t had my typical peaking meltdown (I mean...we still have 8 days).
I’ve learned to dial down the expectations and stop framing my thoughts as “this is what I HAVE to hit to be happy.” Having goals is important, and can be incredibly motivating, but beating yourself up if the day doesn’t go EXACTLY as planned isn’t productive and it’s not healthy. I realized that @girlswhopowerlift isn’t going to drop me if I have a “bad” meet. @killrobbailey and @danalinnbailey aren’t going to be embarrassed to have me representing @thewarhousegym. @ariantank isn’t going to regret coaching me. -
Last Arnold, I had zero expectations going in. I had a couple pretty rough life experiences which only allowed me to train 6 random weeks out of 12 during my prep and I almost pulled out of the meet twice. I had no expectations because I couldn’t have any. That was my best meet to date. Not only did I hit some of my best numbers, but I had the most fun I’ve ever had at a meet and felt the most accomplished. I was singing, dancing, and laughing literally up until they called “bar is loaded” for each lift. I learned that I need to keep it fun and light hearted in order to succeed and feel good about myself.
I’m honestly not sure how feeling this good physically and emotionally will translate in 8 days, but I’m ready to have a good time no matter what my numbers are.
#7daysout and everyone keeps asking me how I’m feeling- the answer is GOOD. I feel, SO GOOD 😌🙏🏽
My job can be pretty physical & stressful, and most days I train really tired- being off all this week from work has been SUCH a luxury. Shoutout to the state of New Jersey for giving public schools a #februarybreak .. Im so thankful 🙏🏽
Bodyweight is down, strength is up, and I’m sleepin like a champion every night- Lets do this guys! 💞 #strongman#strongwoman#strongfeels#powernyc#teamhotmess#arnold2018#weready
