I remembered I have two lats and one of them still works so I finished the meso with one-hand pulls (also did the bad side with 10 pounds -- dat dere blood flow), some brachioradialis curls (the bar with a slightly pronated grip option is probably a bit better in that sense but neutral is good enough), and a giant set on the leg curl machine, starting with 150 pounds and ending with 10, of which I posted the last 90 seconds or so. Hugely watery today with the injury. I was 220 pounds! Looking forward to cutting back down to ~194. Just hope this torn lat mends itself quickly. It felt so gross when it tore! Bleh

The PRs are here. 150kg for 8 @69kg Learning how to actually program, hours of reading and listening to resources have done me a world of good! #rpstrength #renaissanceperiodization #bodybuilding #modernperiodization #deadlift

I’m starting Renaissance Periodization tomorrow, which will hopefully make me extra shredded but I won’t lose any muscle 😏😏 these pictures are from the last 5 months randomly to show what my body looks like right now. This is mostly just for fun because I’ve always wanted to see how far I can push my body and have a certain physique. If I’m acting grumpy it’s because I won’t be able to have alcohol, pizza, wine, or brownies for 12-16 weeks. 😂 #renaissanceperiodization #girlpower #powerlifter #strong #independentwoman

Dumbbell skull crushers! 💀 . I used to do these when I had my home gym but instead I would use a barbell . Going to bring these back in! I forgot how awesome the tricep activation is👌🏻 . You don’t need a lot of weight for these, I’m using 20 lbs, make sure you control these because they can be a bit harsh on the elbows, full stretch and squeeze at the top, a mental cue I use is “push palms to the roof” ✊ .

Really great talking with Dr. Gabrielle Fundaro ( @vitaminphd ) about gut health. This is a hugely popular topic nowadays and Dr. Fundaro has some great insight to share. For this interview her charity of choice was Furkids, a shelter for homeless animals 🐱🐶 #leakygut #gut #guthealth #microbiome #scd #DrMaconi #Fitness #Health #Bodybuilding #Diet #Training #lifting #DaveMaconi #Exercise #BrainsandGains #muscle #fit #strong #strength #podcast #interviews

I have been getting hydrostatic body fat testing done for almost 2 years now. It is one of the gold standard procedures for accuracy (+- 1%). Shocked and very proud of these results. My goal was 15%.. blew that out of the water and now need to think of a new goal. Down almost 20lbs and 6% body fat this year. Thanks to the wonderful, knowledge, and supportive folks at @bodyfattestofnc. Look them up and get tanked. #cro#crossfitrrus #crossfit #loseitandcruiseit #rpstrength #renaissanceperiodization
