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.
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.
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 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.
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.
I was sick this week but still competed in the Tactical Strength Challenge as I had planned. I have some video from the event plus a bonus video of toddler-assisted mobility work.
This week my journal includes my training summary, plus two videos - one training video and a second with some tips on how to improve your grip.
My gym has grown rapidly, which is great but also makes it harder to focus on my workouts, so I'll share how I'm counteracting that. This week's training went well and my quad is feeling better.
I had some swelling and pain in my IT band and quad, so I steered clear of squatting and made some modifications. Also some video of the drills I'm doing to get my glute firing right again.
During my training this week I had a few moments where I could have kept going but stopped due to pain or discomfort. The last thing I need after all the rehab work is another injury.
