For the last couple of months, I have been craving work. I mean, I’m ready to start training heavy again. I am ready to go in the gym with specific goals, and a specific plan. I am ready to compete again! I’ve trained consistently since my meet last August, but dialed back on the weight […]
Stuck at a plateau in your weight loss? For me, the challenge comes down to three things: 1) I have to do things differently, 2) I have to realize it is possible, 3) I have to commit and be consistent.
What’s next for Meagan, the athlete? It comes down to three things: 1) Keep on training and getting stronger, 2) Prepare for 2014 USAPL Raw Nationals, 3) Lean out to compete in lower weight class.
On August 10th 2013, I made my return to the powerlifing platform and competed for the first time in 6 years at the USAPL NJ State Championships. It was a great day! I went 9 for 9 for the day (meaning all of my attempts passed), and I hit all of my goals. I took […]

It has been a busy month. I had a 3 week trip to the states, most of which was for business, and while I kept up with my training, I didn’t keep up with my online training log. The next month will be equally as busy as I finish up writing my dissertation! Instead of […]
I am 8 weeks and 4 days out of the USAPL NJ State Meet, Aug 10. Today’s squat workout was a little strange… but killer and I am proud of the work done! Strange because I had a little freak-out in the middle of my squat work sets… to go up or no? I lacked […]
