Hump Day Power Song: Rattlesnake by St. Vincent

It’s the middle of the working week, and even if you’re lucky enough to spend your whole day doing what you love, you need a bit of a push sometimes. Or maybe you’re like us, and you woke up feeling pretty stoked about how your week has gone so far.

Therefore, you want to turn up the noise. Today’s noise is witchy and twitchy with purple hair:

We’re Not the Only Ones in the Only World

It HAS been a good week for our newborn blog, though! In two days, we’ve had visitors from more than 20 countries and over 200 likes on our Facebook page. More people are following us on Twitter and Instagram to see what we’re doing. And we’ve lined up some exciting guest bloggers who will be joining us in the coming weeks.

Best of all, athletes from all over are starting to use our hashtag #sharethegrind to let us witness the fitness, like Mickey of Power Up Fitness in Sheffield did last night:

And now for a #sharethegrind nightcap from competitive strongwoman and Sheffield-based personal trainer @mickey_870! Thanks for this ace #deadlift photo! And thanks to all who shared with us today! #Repost @mickey_870 with @repostapp. ・・・ Some ace photos of my first strongwomen comp over at This was from the deadlift for reps in 60 seconds. I believe I got 14-15 reps, my legs gave way afterwards because someone swapped them for jelly. Can't wait for my next comp, met so many lovely (and insanely strong) people #sheffield #strongman #amatureathlete #strength #sheffieldissuper #sharethegrind #strongwomen #deadlift #nomeatathlete #vegan #vegetarian @strengthshopuk @titaniumstrengthgym @structuresportandfitness @steelcitystrongman

Will you spend part of your day deadlifting for reps, punching a speedbag, pushing a sled, or maybe just shovelling snow (hi, Americans!)? #sharethegrind, readers.

Meanwhile, we’ve got some fun stuff coming up today and tomorrow– but the main event, of course, is Sunday’s English Championships, when MiniBIG and King Gorilla will head to Manchester to battle it out. Rose and Lauren will be there as spectators to share the action.

Meanwhile, you share yours with us! Happy Wednesday!
