Fucked Around With Deadlifts & Got hurt

So I have three videos to show everyone & will drop the links below. One will be my 300 lb deadlift fail, another will be my 295 complete and the final one will be my 245 lb for 3 reps —

Today I was aiming to hit 300 lb and well, I tried it over 20 times over (without adequate resting between sets and aggressively toward the end) to the point where I ended up hurting one side of my lower back/upper hip. Normally I am really good about NOT injuring myself, but today neglected to pay attention to my body and it happened. I could not continue on with the rest of my workout today due to the pain, so hopefully it is only a pulled muscle, a lesson learnt and i’ll be back to lifting normally between tomorrow and Thursday! otherwise, I am doing well for the most part.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic! "I've conquered many things, but I still have much to learn about life, because nobody can know everything. & every battle is different" - Shay-lon
