List

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…

    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! 🙂
