Last but not least the absurdity that was my deadlifts. Thanks to @whitelightsmediauk for some cracking photos, never have I been able to appreciate my insane neck vein in such levels of HD.

Bench press pictures really are just gratuitous crotch angles a lot of the time, and always make me question my decision on wearing the Inzer.

Yes I know it’s boring AF and happened a month ago now but I’m doing three more posts about Commies cause my sweet @whitelightsmediauk photo package came through and I can only upload 10 at a time on the gram. ...
Post 1 - the many horrifying phases and facial expressions of the squat, feat. a now very visible grey hair streak.

In the absence of PL training for a while, Operation Make Tocher’s Posterior Chain Do Some Fucking Work For A Change (catchier code names welcome) is in full swing. Scap pulls proving that pull ups are actually really hard when you don’t just haul yourself up by your biceps. Plus side is it was a good angle for showing off my new fave purchase from @9for9.co.uk with my new @feedmefightme HeatherRED crop which came today to perk up my Monday morning 😍

Commonwealth Championships 2019 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇨🇦 LONG POST ALERT

Now that I have my wee video montage from @whitelightsmediauk (thanks for making me look mildly athletic!) I can look back and safely say this was one of my best comp experiences ever. ...
Squat - 155kg
Bench - 100kg 🥈
Deadlift - 167.5 failed second at sumo; so took it again on 3rd conventional cause why not mix up your deadlift stance at an international 😂
...
Total wise I was well off my best, didn’t hit any PBS and 167 should be an opener on other days (maybe tiredness, maybe my gammy right knee, who knows or cares) but honestly couldn’t have had a better time competing and sharing a warm up room with some absolute superstars (@powerlifting.princess @chrissie.appleby @djessicabuettner @emma_sarah_willis @laurensarajude @nix_powerlifts looking at you here) and getting to be part of everyone in Team Scotland’s success was beaut. Also still thrilled about winning Best Female Lifter at the Bench Press only comp earlier in the week, will literally be dining out on that story for the rest of my life 😂
...
Special thanks to my coach @coachbbain and my game day coach and partner in crime @atsapproved for putting up with me before, during and since ❤️
...
Now in withdrawal as SBD training is out for a wee while until this knee stops being a dick 🙄

Been counting down the days til Commonwealths was past so I could finally stop peaking after what felt like a year - 3 days into new programme and already missing heavy singles 🙄 
Had to turn down Home Nations for Team Scotland this November due to ongoing kneebola, so @coachbbain has kindly given me a range of knee friendly exercises that I am shite at but which will hopefully make me a better lifter in the long run. I feel like it’s going to be a long off season...

Finally home after living in what felt like a complete Powerlifting bubble for the past week. We did manage to sneak in a tiny bit of sightseeing in Newfoundland in between sessions, hopefully might make it back to Canada some day for some more exploring one day.

Now depressed at the thought of having to go back to normal life tomorrow instead of waking up worrying about everyone making weight and remembering all their kit 🙄

Just when I thought this week couldn’t get any better, the absolute icing on the cake was finding out I won Best Overall Lifter in the Women’s Open Bench 👀👀 To say I was shocked is probably an understatement, I screamed, got rugby tackled by @sheri__miles on the way to collect my trophy, and then screamed some more. 
Now celebrating with a cup of tea back at the Airbnb since it’s the first minute of peace we’ve had all week 😂

5th overall and a podium place with @djessicabuettner and @chrissie.appleby for a silver medal in bench...gonna say that was a pretty good day ❤️ Not my best total and zero PBs, but don’t care - don’t think I had much more in me today, sometimes that’s just how competition goes. Couldn’t have done it without Will today, he’s put in a savage shift this week and super proud of how he has managed Team Scotland for this whole comp...by far the loudest supporters in Canada 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #scottishpowerlifting #commonwealthpowerlifting #powerlifting #a7uk #teamscotland #thisisfemalepowerlifting #squat #bench #deadlift #girlswholiftheavy #fitfam #jackednotan #liftheavy #inzer #sbd

Commonwealth Bench Champion 2019 sounds pretty sweet not gonna lie. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇨🇦🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
Sharing this one with @davidbonner_21, @scottnewcombe and @coachbbain, missed my usual Monday night bench session with them to go do this so glad I have something to take back! Also big thanks to the rest of Team Scotland who were the smallest but absolutely loudest crowd cheering, hopefully this is the start of a great week for everyone, can’t wait to be part of it!

Full day on the mic yesterday at the @scottishpowerlifting All Scottish yesterday has let my voice somewhat fucked but as usual timing was great as watching everyone in action has gotten me hype for my own comp next week. Special shout out @skwatsandpancakes who has inspired me to get my mindset sorted after nailing her final deadlift nemesis.

One week out from Commonwealths, last heavy singles on bench tonight and then let’s see what we can bring in Canada 🇨🇦

So despite the revelation that aged over 25 and unmarried makes me past my prime in Japan, this birthday weekend hitting 35 wasn’t as painful as anticipated. Thanks for all the birthday wishes folks, even the offensive ones, all much appreciated ❤️
