1st pic = a few hours before earning 3 Pro cards & winning Overall
2nd pic = 3rd Pro Show post pandemic, autoimmune issue & knee surgery
A lot a life altering rough stuff occurred in between these 2 pics. The moral of the story is to never stop pushing. No matter what obstacles are in the way…we keep putting one foot in front of the other. Obstacles are just a test to see just how badly you want it!
I will get this physique to where it needs to be to grace that Olympia stage. One step at a time…
Can you guess what exercise I’m about to execute? Which body part am I training?
Sometimes ya gotta shift your perspective! The path you choose & the journey you are on is YOURs…& YOURS alone. Lots of people will have their own ideas regarding what your journey “should” be. The choice is always your own. Very often, those with the loudest voices have never even dared to accomplish what you have & will as you continue paving your own path. 😉 No one will do it for you. I challenge you to be an outlier in a world filled with conformists.

Pro hack: try elevating the toes for this variation of DB RDLs
This variation is quite a bit more challenging.
Remember: keep the spine neutral, maintain a slight bend in the knees (soft) and drive the hips back
Anyone care to guess what adjustments I’m making to this physique for 2023?
Which category shall I choose? 🤔
I didn’t particularly like getting my b***y handed to me at the STL PRO. Lit a 🔥 under me for sure.
No words necessary 🦂💋

Sometimes…no words are needed
I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy, and creativity to name a few.
This is how my improvement season is going…
In honor of leg day today…
Keep em guessing…😉

Behind the scenes…raw…unedited
I REALLY needed this leg workout today!! YESSSSS!!! It was epic in every way. This movement was towards the end of my lift. A nice little superset…
Swinging legs press
Heels elevated dumbbell squats
Traveling with a bodybuilder is…well…we’ll say “special”. We have very specific needs and peak week can be especially brutal.
We flex on Fridays…& every other day of the week…🤪💪🏼
One of my favorite shoots with
Life, for me, is all about experiences! I love collecting special moments. Anyone that knows me, realizes that I’m intense & love adventure. It’s important to value experiences & experience them fully…to be present…in the moment. Some moments, that may seem ordinary at the time, can become our most treasured memories!
Live life full throttle & take the chances!!
Looking back through pictures from the last year, I’ve realized so many of my favorite moments have been with my friend We are goofy & have had so much fun. (Even when I called the sunflowers daisies all day…lol)🤦🏼♀️
About my last prep…
Enjoying every step of the journey to improve upon this look for my 2023 competition season. 😁
Post lift chronicles from my car. 😉
For anyone that needs to hear this today…
What muscle groups am I addressing with these 2 movements?
Deep into my improvement season…
“Be humble, but let motherf*ckers know!” ~
This movement is very similar to a Pilates movement and really wanted to give it a try.
Truth be told, I have seen instructing his clients through this exercise & thought to myself…”I have to do it next leg day!”
♥️’d it!! I knew this movement would target the glutes & hammies & really isolate them.
Thank you Charles🙏🏼🙌🏼
Decompressing the spine…lengthen…lengthen…lengthen!!
This felt so good after an intense back workout yesterday! Just what I needed
♥️ your body 🤍
Operation GROW THESE WINGS!!
Monday’s back workout sucked!! So, I decided to reboot & do it again today…& get it right👊🏼
Sometimes we just have to adapt…
Since so many people have asked…here you go!
After knee surgery, I lost a LOT of size in my quads. They used to be 26 inches. For my last show (STL Pro in April), they were 21 inches🤦🏼♀️. So, I’m on a mission to get them back & then some. With a good pump today, they were just over 25 inches. Scratching & clawing my way back.
Legs have historically been my absolute favorite body part to train. In fact, they were my strongest body part. During the time that I could not really train legs, I focused on bringing up my upper body. It was time well spent. The autoimmune issue & knee surgery definitely set me back, but that’s life. We roll with it & grow from challenging experiences.
Always a work in progress!!
