    Cool Chasing DLB

    ❤️ The title is a bit of a misnomer because I don't compete in physique but I do Crossfit sometimes and I do like to bodybuild and move heavy weight. I had the pleasure of training with DLB and Miranda Oldroyd at the Warhouse Gym recently and was so relieved to find a couple of women on top of their sport who train happy; and write their own rules.

    I'm 5'3" and give or take 135#
    So the same stats as DLB. Shorter than Miranda by a few inches though.
    Bench: 170#
    Squat: 275#
    Clean & Jerk: 190#
    Snatch: I haven't maxed it in a year or so... TBD
    Strict Press: 120#
    Jerk: 190#
    Push Press: TBD
    Dealdlift: 275# (a little embarrassing but it's my least favorite lift)

    I'm doing a comp in August and train about 5 days a week. I do Crossfit Invictus programming out of San Diego, CA
    I follow Renissance Periodization Nutrition. (For about 2 months now and have PR'd every single lift.)

    I have been an ISSA Personal Trainer since 2006, competed briefly in figure (2 shows). I am a level 2 Certified Crossfit Coach, and a Surgical Trauma Nurse.

    I'm just logging for some motivation, but it's just me, chasing DLB.

    I'm not a powerlifter so my form is very average.

    Nice job on the bench PR. Great form. Maybe a bit more arch, it always helped my bench.

    Long time no update. I do track most of my workouts elsewhere and my macros. I'll try to post more because I may have to graciously ask from some diet help. I would like to lose a little weight without losing strength but I'll address that later.




    Bench: 170#- Now 180#
    Squat: 275#- Now 280#
    Clean: 190#- 205#
    Snatch:Old 137# Current 160#
    Strict Press: 120#- Now 125#
    Jerk: 190#- Now 200#
    Push Press: TBD
    Dealdlift: 275#- Now 305#

    I've done two comps in the pro division competing against some really experienced women.

    I took 7th in the Pro division at the WY Open and 3rd Place at the Colorado Open yesterday!!!!

    I also attended the Crossfit Games and made sure to say hello to Mark Smelly Bell!

    Currently I'm sitting in some normatech squeezers getting ready for a hard week of training ahead ����

    Tossing around the idea of going to Vegas for the Olympia!
