You’re gonna be okay

I know it’s all you’ve got to just, be strong
And it’s a fight just to keep it together, together
I know you think, that you are too far gone
But hope is never lost
Hope is never lost

Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

I know your heart is heavy from those nights
Just remember that you’re a fighter, a fighter
You never know just what tomorrow holds
And you’re stronger than you know
Stronger than you know

Hold on, don’t let go
Hold on, don’t let go

Just take, one step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
One step, closer
Put one foot in front of the other
You’ll get through this
Just follow the light in the darkness
You’re gonna be ok

And when the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok
When the night, is closing in
Don’t give up and don’t give in
This won’t last, it’s not the end, it’s not the end
You’re gonna be ok

People Show Us Who They Are

State Of Slay™

We’ve all heard the saying, “talk is cheap,” and I’ve found as I’ve moved forward on my journey that not only is it cheap, it has no value at all without proper action. Just saying something doesn’t make it true, right, or worth anything at all. It’s all in the action. People will tell us what they want us to hear, they will say what they think makes them look good, or to tell the narrative they want to tell, I know, I used to do all of those things, in fact, those were my three top reasons for speaking before taking responsibility for my own well-being and mental health, so I know from first hand experience. But there are good people out there, I would like to think that I am one of them, people who speak their truth, even if it’s not what may be popular or what…

80’s Bodybuilding Rock Star Berry DeMey

The bodybuilding era is known as “the twilight of the golden age of bodybuilding” produced icons of the sport whose popularity still burns to this very day. This show’s co-host notwithstanding, guys such as eight-time Mr. Olympia Lee Haney, Lee Labrada, Gary Strydom, Shawn Ray, Bob Paris, Robby Robinson, Samir Bannout, and their brethren, still draw a crowd due to the indelible mark they left on the sport. One of those guys slid in right after Haney and Rich to place 3rd at 1988, Mr. Olympia. All these years later he’s as full of passion for the sport as he ever was. Yes, I’m talking about “The Flexing Dutchman,” Berry De Mey.

BIG BENCH PRESS NOW!

The bench press is often the litmus test for being strong in the gym. Accurate or not, I coach competitors that need to be at their best in all three phases of a powerlifting meet.

Here are some tips you may not have considered to bring up your or a client’s press. I have added to exercises I love to help the bench press: Spartan presses, dead presses and JM presses.

Spartan presses combine the Spoto and Larsen press. This is all about bracing and the shove!
Focus on the sticking point with dead presses. I recommend starting at the top position to unrack the bar and settle into the shoulders.
This is not a skullcrusher! Elbows up and out!

Women and performance enhancing drugs, a survey.

PED’s, gear, gym candy, ‘roids, juice, skittles, pumpers, stackers; there are a million words for steroids and other performance enhancing drugs in the strength sport community (and others) and their use is an accepted part of powerlifting and bodybuilding in untested competition (and tested, but that’s neither here nor there) … for men. Women, on the other hand, haven’t quite reached the “acceptance” stage yet. We’re still stuck somewhere between denial and bargaining, trying to become and remain competitive in high-level competition while also battling the stigma of virilization (both actual and perceived). Along with the “they’ll turn you into a man” chorus echoed by uninformed women and fragile-ego’d men, women also battle the stigma of our choice to denounce the ideal of “feminine purity” imposed by a male-dominated sport, society and world, not only by competing in strength sports to begin with, but by…
