Today is my 25th birthday.

Beyond grateful for all of the lessons that I’ve learned, People I’ve met, and opportunities I’ve had.

Started my day off with some great time under the iron.

For 25 years, I did 5 sets of 5 (25 reps) for 4 different movements.

Covered the whole body.

Weighed in today at 158.8 pounds.

Trap Bar Deadlift 5×5

Started with a 5 rep max of 315 Pounds.

All out. Perfect form very happy with this.

The most I’ve ever trap bar dead lifted was 407 pounds for 1, but my form was garbage. Super rounded back.

When I can get to ~ 405 with perfect form, I know I’ll be my strongest by far.

Goal is by the end of 2020.

Did the final 4 sets of 5 with 285 pounds.

Front Squat 5×5

Legs were taxed from the dead’s.

Did Pause reps and started with a heavy 5 at 175 pounds.

Did the rest at 155 pounds and focused on velocity.

Barbell Floor Press

Heavy 5 at 165 pounds then 4×5 at 150.

Pendlay Row

Heavy 5 at 165 and then 4×5 at 150.


Great workout and great day.

My beyond words incredible girlfriend made me this cake.

Speechless.

Always be grateful for what you have.

For who you have.

For every moment.

For every day.
