My arms literally feel like jello. I was holding my phone to text someone and my arm was actually shaking just from holding it.
Today was my last day in the gym before I move to Chicago for school. It was so sad saying goodbye to my trainer - he has helped me SO MUCH! Because of him I’ve lost 20 pounds, gained muscle, learned how to lift weights, and felt better about my body than I ever have.
I wish I could have told him that but I feel like it would have been creepy/weird.
The strangest thing is going to be making my own lifting workouts.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to create your own lifting workouts? I really don’t know what to do. TYIA <3 <3

I might be crazy but isn’t this bad form? I was under the impression that when you deadlift, you should be pointing your toes straight forward and parallel to each other. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, I don’t want to be using bad form when I deadlift!
…because the Olympics have completely consumed my life. It’s been a lot of ups and downs, but I have enjoyed every second. I’ll get back into Tumblr soon I promise!
On an actual personal note, I’ve been working on learning to clean (and jerk, eventually). Fuck that shit is hard! x_x So far I’ve just been working with the bar.

There was a tornado watch but I still went to the gym. I had to drive 40 km/hr because the rain was coming down so hard and the roads were flooded. Sadly, with all the rain and hail, I won’t be doing hill sprints today…
BUT here is a progess picture of my back! Six months makes a huge difference ^_^
T is making tons of progress, too.
