HONOR- RESPECT – GRATITUDE – CONJUGATE
(image on left is in Slovak, I’m 50% Slovakian, and might just be my new ink)
I’m not even sure what happened but as I was reaping 255lbs stiff legged deadliest for sets of 6 after also managing to;
– hit 30 burpee muslce ups in a workout
– squatted without a box pre-workout ( and in a workout- hasn’t happened in 4+months)
– hit a bar muscle up, strict pull-up, kipping complex
– hit strict chest to bar pull-up
– lost 14lbs
– hit 8″ deficit hspu……50 of them….
all within the last week……IT’S ALL STARTING TO CLICK!!!!!
Then walks in Laura Phelps Sweatt…. and I couldn’t hold it in…. tears welled up. why? Because since competing at the CrossFit Games as an individual athlete it has been a rough go. Injury…. recover….. to an injury….to recover to another injury……
3 years ago I hosted the CrossFit Powerlifting certification where I first met Shane and Laura, and we discussed working together. They wanted to see if they could get me to be a better fitter faster athlete than I was before the string of injuries. I reluctantly agreed because I have always had that ‘bug’ to be the best I can be.
Layer in meeting Sean Lind last year at a seminar put on by CrossFit Conjugate and I began to realize just how difficult moving my own body weight was…..layer in conjugate gymnastics programming……
3 months ago I made an all chips in full commitment…..commit to doing conjugate gymnastics programming everyday on top of the conjugate nation programming……no excuses….and man oh man was it frustrating. I was tired, and moving my own weight made me feel like a hippo on the rings.
2 months ago I finally reached out to Jason Ackerman about macros and I decided…. time to clean up my diet….
I was then committed to conjugate nation, conjugate gymnastics and macros……It seems to be the perfect trifecta…I am getting leaner, lighter, moving my own weight easier and getting stronger!!!!!
it seems like I have finally found myself and holy moly does it feel amazing. Laura walked by as I was working stiff legged deadliest at 255lbs and it hit me and my eyes welled up with tears….. this 3 year journey helped me find myself and the crazy part – I didn’t even know I was lost. It’s not often we find people that are genuinely just looking to do good by you, support you and encourage you without any expectation in return. I could never repay them for all they have given back to me! Conjugate for life!
