I’ve almost finished a full write up for the @strengthsocietyadelaide team at GPC Sydney Cup at @warriorperform but I want to post this in the meantime and call out this Judas motherfucker for red lighting his own team.
But seriously, @heaps.mysterio @laurenkelliegreen @pappaspower @kittycatlifting (and others who don’t have on IG) did a fucking amazing job this weekend.
Yeah, there were a lot of calls that would have been hard to swallow as a lifter or coach but that doesn’t mean any of them were bad. For all the lifting that I SAW, not one bad call was made and consistency was maintained throughout. I trained for over two years with Amanda at PTC Sydney, I’ve coached Adam for almost 4 years, I first met John over 4 years ago and I see and work on Lauren every few months when I come back to Sydney and none of them batted an eye when handing out hard to swallow calls.
For this I applaud you all. For everyone a little sore about being told that they squatted high or that they had a long bench pause or that they didn’t really ramp their deadlift. Maybe just take it on board and get better.
Peace out ✌🏻 As much shit as I gave Adam about giving my lifters red lights. I’m actually quite proud haha
Plenty of people are missing but a HUGE BIG THANKS to all the Warrior crew who helped out this weekend!!! What a crazy Sydney Cup!!!! None of it would happen without the spotters, loaders, desk assistants, MC’s, refs, our barista, anyone else who lent a hand.
WE APPRECIATE YOU 🙌♥️🙏 #teamwarrior#warriorperformance
Pressure makes diamonds 💎 ♦️ Many people have come through these doors 🚪 ... and only a few will stay, not everyone survives.
You won’t find an environment anywhere else on earth like a powerlifting gym, the environment constantly pushes you to strive to better yourself without you knowing it.
The pressure is not external, it’s internal, it will be a battle in your own head of the relentless passion of the person next to you striving to always do better and be better.. No one in here cares what you can lift, they only care about the effort you will put forward. Are you going to dig deep? You can’t fake that type of investment.
If you are going for a PR, everyone will get behind you, as it is your job to make the person next to you stronger than you.
This will either inspire you or crush you! You will quickly found out what type of cloth you are cut from 🤘
