BM looks tiny next to this beast while asking for one tip for aspiring bench lovers. KS says “don’t wait for it, work for it.” Indeed…

F’en Roots: “I’m Stronger Than I Ever Knew”

July 19, 2017

This song is putting me through the roof in the gym. Lyrics are on fire! Definitely added to my heavy gym jamz Youtube playlist. In This Moment brought out the big gunz with this one.

Darkness and Fun with the Coltons

December 7, 2016

We had a great time at Russ and Christina’s Halloween dinner party. Christina took the time to decorate almost every room of their home and their yard with the help of Russ. She made a paper mâché scarecrow to look like the crazy monster in the movie Jeepers Creepers and it looked amazing! He is in the opening of this video. She also made special bird skeletons to add to her decor as well as several other handmade creations. Her table scapes and drink creations were to die for and she really left no detail untouched. I have to recognize her wicked creativity… without a doubt and really enjoyed this get together with some of our fellow gym junkies.

A Story of Me

November 23, 2016

This morning (I mean every morning) when I get up, I feel like I got run over by a truck. I’m like… ommm… maybe “I should just take it easy today?” Then I get to the gym and I’m like… “neeaaahhh.” I made me a custom meme to describe these exact feelings.

Today, I was finally convinced to try the bands on deads. It was a different hit for sure. I felt my hams way more with them on. I guess I could see them useful in strengthening my hams, increasing my grip strength and maybe improving my lockout on heavier lifts.

Ryder Die

November 19, 2016

That moment when you realize pure happiness because you get to spend 10 days straight in workout ♡ gear and you were just *blessed* with a Ryderwear package from Australia! Ooooo… Athletica! I sported the purps to squat yesterday and I’ll kill a bi/tri in the camo pants tomorrow.

Sum Ass Smacking

October 19, 2016

That moment when a woman is brave enough to sneak up and smack my ass from the back in the gym and at first I’m shocked and sort of mad, but later feel like maybe it was a compliment of sorts and my ass be lookin’ better from da squats if a former professional body builder really couldn’t resist not one ass smack, but two! (Yes… that was a run on sentence) I’m around her everyday and I’ve never seen her smack an ass before. She crazy, but really tho… she rocked a serious ass of steel in her prime.

Cheesy ~n~ Clueless

September 28, 2016

Wowwwww… now I can say that I’ve seen it all. Really?? They are selling “Muscle Mac” now? Wtf… when I saw this on the grocery store shelf,  I realized how marketers brain wash people who are clueless about proper nutrition. “Performance nutrition for active lifestyles.” Omm… yeah… eat this in support of muscle if you can actually move after you eat it.  Maybe they should call this “Zero Muscle” instead? Shoots… I’ll just eat me up some regular mac knowing I’m bulking lol. 

RATS DON’T FALL 4 IT, even tho cheese be hella good 🙂

There, but Not There

September 18, 2016

This mug was my favorite birthday gift because of how much I adore this duo. I loved this ill connection before it was cool. Thank you Carmen! It’s kind of symbolic to me… so I’m calling it my “there, but not there” mug. The mug is pitch black until it heats up. Even though it’s black, something is there.

Another Round

September 10, 2016

I’m gonna hit the gym (yeayyy… chest and tri) then get ready for another round with the Lujans. Thinking back to the last round for Katelin’s housewarming party had me like… “woaaaaaaah.” That was out of character for me, ova the top and ova in general after *many* celebratory shots with my sistas and company. I’m gonna be good this time! 

*| Ohhhh Noooo |*

Rock Out Trippy Trip

July 25, 2016

~Custom digital composite I designed for our ticket packets.~ 

~Elaine, Me and Cheryl (my gym gals… these chicks can squat, dey smart and dey hot too!)~

It was a blast to kick it with what Bobby called “the Mandrill’s Crew” from 2pm on Friday ’til close to 2am on Saturday morning. I was glad I took Friday off because I had so much to do! It was awesome and not surprising to find each and every one of the crew for that evening in the gym before we rolled out. It was like roll call up in there lol. Before we hit the gym, we rented a Ford “Flex” (no pun intended) SUV so we could fit 6. Thanks to Scott for having our back on that!

That concert seriously rocked out! It was such a blast. I went to see In This Moment and loved them, but Korn had stolen that show the minute they stepped on stage. It’s no secret that Korn’s bass player is sick, but that night, he and the rest of his band members reminded the audience what years of experience sounds like. Yup… bad ass… that’s what it sounds like. Fieldy’s green and black gutiar was smokin’ with that deep, deep bass.

~Ahhhhhhhhhhhh… yeahhhhhhhhh….. it’s Fieldy on dat bass!♥~

That night we also witnessed Zombie’s guitarist play the National Anthem with his mouth while American flags waved on the big screen!! No joke… that was tight. They also had a gutiar that was clear and filled with what seemed like fluorescent liquid and glow in the dark stuff. Korn’s rendition of Metallica’s “One” was also awesome. I don’t know, but we were jamming out up in there! 

~Sum dinny din and sum dranky drank. From left to right: the back of Mike’s head lol, Jared, Elaine, Bobby, Cheryl and Me. Da boyz didn’t drink.~

~This was our “To the Death” toast. No matter what… we will be in the gym. Elaine and I had on our matching bracelets for the concert and wanted a toast with them.~

We had a straight blast. I embedded some concert footage off my YouTube channel on the post below. They are worth a watch. In the first clip, you’ll hear Rob Zombie talk about how when he and White Zombie broke up, Albuquerque was the first city he visited alone. 

Until next time…

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.

Clean BCAAs

July 2, 2016

I’ve been taking BCAAs for a while because I’m trying to keep my strength and muscle, but shed fat. I’ve been reading up on all sorts of things and came across an article about the “dark side” of supplements. I learned that many of the best known BCAAs including the one I’d been drinking was likely derived from duck feathers, human hair, hog hair, horse tails, and even skin.

I almost said hell with it in an attempt to keep making gainz, when I came across info on Clean Machine BCAAs. It’s not flavored or colored, but it’s made from food sources. Only problem? My old fav also had glutamine as an extra, but I can get that from whole food sources like beans and spinach, as well as meat and eggs. I’m going to try this new supplement. We shall see.

Poolside RnR

June 13, 2016

•~•~• RnR •~•~•

It was really nice to spend three days by the pool this weekend. I got my fill of sun for sure. It was super relaxing. On Friday afternoon, members of the Jackson-Winkeljohn camp were at the pool when we were. It was interesting! They were staying in a penthouse right across the pool from us. They left the pool, then I watched them all leave to go train… bags and jugs of water in hand.

I assumed they were around to pay a visit to King of the Cage, but I didnt see any of them there that night!?! They were at the pool though. That included Albuquerque’s own… Holly Holm in her tiny bikini and Alistair Overeem, the one MMA fighter to hold three championship belts simultaneously. The “Blackzilian” is a 6 ft 4 in, heavyweight, Dutch man who fights out of Amsterdam.
