Sometimes people take themselves too seriously with their lifting. Why? Because it's fun. This week I decided to hit a PR on bottoms up kettlebell presses - for no good reason except I wanted to.
This week I got back to doing heavy bottoms up kettlebell presses for the first time since my bicep injury. My groin pain seems to be better so I also included a squat session.
My training this week reassured me that I'll be ready for Worlds in twelve weeks. I hit an easy 315lb squat and 455lb deadlift with minimal shoulder pain.
This week was a good week for my deadlift. On Saturday I decided to try some dimel deadlifts after not doing them for about four years and hit six reps at 650lbs.
I hit triples this week on my squats and was pretty happy about that. I'm still taking a break from heavy deadlifts and my adductors are pretty fried so I'm being smart about accessory work.
I'm continuing to see improvements with the changes I made to my training plan. This week I set a lifetime deadlift PR and also had some solid squat sessions.
I had a solid training week and finished it with a powerlifting meet at my gym. Here are some of the performances from our gym members.
I continued with my new training approach this week with great success. Lots of video in this week's entry of high bar squats, bench presses, and a new addition for me - band-resisted deadlifts.
This week I made some real progress on my squats - five singles with 600 pounds plus chains. I felt a little tweak in my shoulder during the bench press but managed to still get in some volume.
This week I had EMG analysis done on my lower body, and also made some changes to my weekly cycle, based on recent research on the ideal training volume and how to distribute it.
Two weeks of lifting heavy on all three lifts without a ramp up took its toll on my body. Plus I’m just a weak ass bitch who needs to get stronger.
I made a lot of adjustments to my training this week and noted several improvements, including a chin-up with 100 pounds of added weight - a lifetime PR for me.
I got sick again this week but that wasn't going to stop me. I made progress with my hook grip work and noticed improvement in my shoulder mobility.
With a solid 475 pull, no shoulder pain, and minimal soreness after a few hard sessions, I feel like I'm getting back on track this week. I included several videos in the entry this week as well.
It’s finally time to quit messing around and start putting some heavy weight back on the bar. I plan on competing a couple times this summer and want to be ready.
This week I'll share some of the things I'm doing to check my squat for weaknesses and get my leg and glute firing the way they should be.
This week I share a video of the gym co-owner moving some serious weight. There's some funny competition going on at the gym and also some good news about my bicep injury.
