So, what have I been up to since I last posted? Well, besides working and working out…just winning trophies (actually just 1).

Bench Comp{2014 Virginia Tech Bench Press Competition}

Okay, so it was a default win because 1) There were very few females competing this year and 2) I was the only 1 in my weight class to complete a legal lift. It was by far one of my worst bench days in a while (I only hit my opener), but I am glad I had the competition experience!

What challenge have YOU taken on recently?

P.S. The winner of the giveaway from The Feed is…

WinnerAnne- look for an e-mail from me on getting your box to you!

    Congrats! You’re tougher than me, bench press is right behind snatching in my least favorite ever exercises.

      I like snatching…but I am horrible at it. I think I just like how it makes me feel powerful! 🙂

    Congrats!!! I used to compete in my schools powerlifting meets too and I was usually one of like 2 or 3 girls, but its still a great accomplishment! Be proud!

    • Tanya

      I am thinking of doing a full meet at some point. You’ll have to give me pointers!!

    A win is still a win. Plus you were the only one to complete a lift, that is something girl! It was awesome to watch the whole thing that day!

      I’m so glad you were there! It was nice to see a familiar face!

    You are still a beast in my opinion 🙂 I still think you would have won your group had there been others!

  5. Kailey (Caffeinated Runner)

    I still think you would have won your age group – you are a beast and have the guns to prove it!

    • Tanya

      haha, thanks Kailey! 🙂
