SF-NM Women Killin’ It

August 21, 2019

Recent gifts for two strong New Mexico women whom were competing in other states out of Santa Fe, NM! Susan and Renee. I love crafting and I love these bottles and I found a perfect card! Acknowledging other people matters! That’s why I gave gifts to inspiring women in support of what we all love! Lifting weights! I do know that one went pro! Cheers to strong women!

Susan Kills It!

January 29, 2018

So proud of Susan for killing it and representing for New Mexico women, our capital city, and our home away from home (Mandrill’s Gym). Making history with fleshin’ gunz ablaze… amongst several cool pics and videos she sent me from her recent comp in Cali, I selected four to share. How can I not share pics of her meeting Bradley Martyn and looking mighty shredded? #winsonwins

FightNITE

January 3, 2017

Had such a blast for our UFC 207 fight party. We invited a bunch of people from the gym and another from the gym catered the party. We also invited some family. Fun nite. Fun nite which included good eats+ sangria (made in the heirloom punch bowl that was just passed down to me) and whole strawberries soaked in vodka. Fun nite ha? Well.. what made it even more fun? Nunes rocked Rousey like the beast she is.

But did you die?

July 12, 2016

Sunday night I was seriously sleepless. Because of that, I just went in yesterday to do abs and skipped the after work cardio to sleep. I came home yesterday and went to bed at 5:30pm and slept until this morning. When my alarm clock went off for work, my eyes still felt like they were filled with lead. I wanted to call in and sleep more because I felt so drained. You know what got me out of bed? Eddie Hall.

•|• Eddie Hall… STRAIGHT BEAST •|•

Today was deadlift day and there was no way I was missing after Hall just set a historical deadlift record and didn’t die!!! He’s a straight beast! I told myself “get your ass up!” I went to work feeling like a tired mess, but got a lot of work done regardless. When workout time came I told myself… “wasted or not, you are deadlifting today!” I focused my mind and music on a replay of the first few seconds of “Till I Collapse” by Eminem x Nate Dogg.

“Cause sometimes you just feel tired. You feel weak. And when you feel weak, you feel like you want to just give up. But you gotta search within you. You gotta find that inner strength and just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you want to just fall flat on your face and collapse.”

It worked and I didn’t die even though I didn’t feel good! Our minds are powerful. It has taken years of experience for me to master my mind in the gym. I’m so glad I went today. 5 days ago I posted about hitting a 185 dead and my plans to hit a 1RM at 205 soon. I figured by the end of the month. Half of July is left and I hit a 205 dead today for not 1RM, but for 2… *completely* raw, double overhand with a tight lockout. I got that 3 more times for 1, but failed to lockout the last.

That brings my 3 lift total to 575 lbs. Now I know I’ll get to 600. I’m going to bench 205 soon!! Goals on goals.

Choked Out and a TKO

June 12, 2016

We had such a blast in Albuquerque this weekend! We just got home and I’m super, super tired! On Friday night, we took our first Uber ride to the Embassy Suites to watch our local MMA fighters rip shit up! I laughed when my nephew snapped a pic of our Uber driver to his chatters. He seemed very confused. It was definitely a fun night and we were surprised to see a few Santa Fe gym rats there.

We got to see my friend Marlene’s son easily choke out his opponent Kyle Sparks during his King of the Cage “Ascension” bout. Ernesto “LockNess” Salvidrez won within 50 seconds of round 1 by submission with a rear naked choke. Our former trainer’s son, Jesse “The Vanilla Gorilla” Martinez smashed Fernando Sanchez by TKO within 33 seconds of the first round.

These two represented Santa Fe to the fullest! We also got to see Diego Sanchez and Jon Jones there! Here are some awesome pics from that night.

Fight

February 28, 2016

Well… today the little man played in the championships for 1st and 2nd. It was such a close game. There were several fouls and several injuries. I think my every nerve was racked until the last second of the game. My number 21 played his heart out. It was a fight. He really tried in this game. The Coyotes took 2nd after they were kicked into overtime and then lost by 2 points in the final minute.

“You become a champion by
fighting one more round. When
things are tough, you fight one
more round.”

Don’t Touch My Shit

January 31, 2016

••Handmade with Love••

Call it cocky, call it a warning, call it confrontational, but who ever has been touching my shit at the gym, sure is asking for it. I had to make a sign to put on my stuff in the women’s bathroom (stuff that is not their stuff for the record). I have to think that someone has just been trying to tick me off for the last few weeks. It worked, but I wanted to forewarn her before I find out who she is because I may drop bombs when that happens.

I made a sign last week and have been hanging it since. Needless to say that nobody has touched my stuff for the last five days. 2016 is the year of fire for me. The sign is actually much nicer than the thoughts that were running through my head when I typed it. I may eventually be confronted for this one, but I’m ready for it and I put my photo on the sign so they know exactly who find. Rico has me in stitches over this one.

Powerlifting for Early Bodybuilding Progress

January 31, 2016

I’ve been looking at female powerlifting numbers… setting goals… working to continue making gains. ~F

Body Muscle Workout Guide

daniel stisenFor young Norwegian competitor Daniel Stisen, training experience began at his father’s own gym, where he learned the basics from his earliest teens until he was 20. It was during this initial period that he also learned the powerlifting techniques that won him a second place in the junior division of his country’s national powerlifting championships when he was just 17. It was also a significant period in helping him gain impressive size and condition to his back, chest, arms and legs two years later when he won the junior class in the 2002 Oslo Grand Prix. Since then, he has continued training at Harald’s Gym in the capital of Oslo.

Powerlifting for Both Size and Symmetry

Daniel’s rapid progress from junior to open class competition came with the expert advice of his father. “In my first competitions my father helped me a lot, with workout and diet tips. Now…
