I’m a stickler for function.  Everything I do when I am working on a person, teaching a stretch class or just in conversation, it always comes back to function.  How is what is hurting you impeding your ability to function in your daily life? Then we’ll talk about how it impacts training a little, but then we go back to function. I start every...

May 31, 2015

^^Yes, I drive many, many hours at a time in this vehicle It has been an absolutely CRAZY past few months.  I have been working, traveling, re-instating my consulting business all while working with my partners and teammates at 2XL Powerlifting.  My travel has increased back to what it was prior to my stepping out of consulting in 2009, plus I am adding product...

2014 USAPL Raw Nationals Weeks 14 and 15 – Shenanigans and Asshattery

Jun 27, 2014

And just like that I’m behind again.  Again.  I’ve had a couple of really busy weeks (I know, like that’s new….) and just haven’t had a chance to sit down and write anything up.   Luckily, there isn’t as much training as usual to type up.  Partly, that’s because of my meet prep.  But it’s also partly because...

Back Under the Bar #RoadToRecovery

Back Under the Bar #RoadToRecovery

Apr 29, 2014

It has been almost exactly 11 months since the injury on June 4, 2013, which ruptured my left patellar tendon and crushed the left thumb.  The healing process has been long and challenging with my hard-headed opinion that I did not want to do a second surgery on the knee. At 10 months I was verbally cleared to start moving a small amount of weight because the...

Pre Arnold Training

September 9th I started my new Bench day leading up to the Arnold.  I’m transitioning pretty easy with bench, so that’s good. I hit the heaviest weights that I have since Raw Nationals. Here is how it went. BENCH 335×2 365×2 385×2 * Paused last rep. Pretty happy with this RVB BENCH 405X2 425X2 * All sets paused DB BENCH 100X10 100X10...

Fried chicken legs!!

So it’s been a few weeks and I have been doing light work. I mean really light work. If you remember the plane ride screwed up my back and when I got done with Nationals I was in some real pain. I got home the next day and it just got worse. I just figured it was from a combo of the plane ride there and lifting with my back like that and already hurting...

AUGUST ATHLETE: SEBRINA DAVIS

Aug 2, 2013

My name is Sebrina Davis-Doakes. I am 42 years old and have been a powerlifter for three years.  Powerlifting has become such an influential part of my life that my powerlifting goals motivate me on and off the platform.  More than anything, I see each meet I compete in as an opportunity to push my competitive drive and athletic performance to a new plateau. ...

2013 Raw Nationals/ R.I.P BIRD

Jul 28, 2013

“This is a story about how my life got flipped turned upside down.”   If you don’t know where that is from, then you had a horrible childhood. OK lets get started. I got on the plane to go to FL on Friday morning. I was lifting on Sunday but I knew that I would be stiff from the plane ride because I wouldn’t fit. So I decided to give...

Week 5 day 1 Raw Nats Training

OK it’s getting close to game time. This is always the time where I kick it into high gear. Pushing my body and mind beyond the breaking point. After years of training, you  reach a level of self awareness that is unmatched. Knowing exactly how far to go without going to far. Yes anything can happen at anytime but essentially  you can push yourself to...
