Because on my worst day, he would never let me stop pushing.
I promised myself to be one and done with this one and I truly am.
And my promise to you, CJ? Finish it. No matter what, finish it.
And I sure as hell did.

F*ck what other people think! Whether your overweight or super skinny as long as you are happy and doing what you love, you are succeeding. Ask yourself one thing tonight. Are you happy? If so yayyyy! If not eliminate the negativity and do you❤️💪 flexfridaybehappydoyou
I’ve been feeling uninspired physically lately so I had one goal in mind when I went to the gym tonight: have fun.
So I threw on my lucky shirt (fun fact: I scored a try in this shirt. It was wounded in the process) and tried a bunch of things I had never done before. 10/10 would recommend. Turkish get ups? Mastered. Next experiment? Pistol squats.
-Fix poor sumo deadlift positioning -improven mobility
-strengthen low back and hips
-Work your grip
-Improve lat engagement in the deadlift -and more
The video I showed you is 1 rep from start to finish, and thus chair deadlifts can be used in any rep scheme from 1 rep sets all the way to 20-50 rep sets. Just remember to do them correctly
Technique (as demonstrated):
-Sit on a chair that leaves your hips at the same height as your starting position of the sumo deadlift
-position yourself in front of the bar identically to your main deadlift stance (sumo or conventional)
-grab the bar (with your hands)
-pull back until your torso is entirely upright and the bar is off the ground (should be a slightly below knee level)
-pause at the top
-place the bar back down slowly
-pull back on the bar once again and pause before slowly lowering it to the ground once again
-pull back on the bar once again, pausing at the top
-forcefully push your hips through, bringing the bar to a full lockout as you would in a deadlift
-lower the bar to the ground as you would in the eccentric of a deadlift
-you have completed 1 rep of a chair deadlift. Congratulations 🎉
If you just kinda sorta try, you kinda sorta get results 👍 make the decision that you won’t give up on yourself no matter what - and then you’re on the right path to success! 👌
