Another successful lifting session down in my basement 😉 This one was a little rough honestly. I’m not sure why. Perhaps my head just wasn’t into it. Perhaps my period was dragging me down. OR. Perhaps it’s because I lifted at 8:30pm rather than 3 or 4 like usual. I was burnt out and tired and not really in the mood to be lifting… which is rare. Anyway, I stuck with it and pushed through. I thought back to the time I wrote THIS a few months ago:
I thought really hard about how difficult I anticipate the future of my training to be, and how I honestly can’t wait for it, because I fucking WANT IT. Even though I know it is going to be rough at times, and I’m going to feel fat and non-girly, and I might not be making as much progress as I dreamed. It doesn’t matter. I’m not going to question my decision to put my strength before anything else, because I WANT IT. I am not going to give up. I’m not going to let myself. I want to be great. I want to be strong. I want to be the best.
and forced myself not to cut things short.
In food news, I have discovered bulk bags of fish fillets… so good for lunch.
1×10@20K, 1×5@60K, 1×3@80K, 2×2@90K, 1×2@106K, 5×1@106K, 1×2@100K, 1×3@100K
I was giving myself shit for these feeling heavy and sloppy yesterday, but in hindsight… this is quite heavy for me, and I think I should be proud not disappointed. Moving around 235# without any issues is nothing but good news for my back injury.
I may give myself a rest from squats for a few days. This was a lot of work for my healing baby back. I’ll see how it’s feeling this weekend. I need to do some deadlift work so that may come as a priority.
1×5@20k, 1×5@30K, 7×5@40K
These were good. I paused every rep. It was hard after all the squats… especially considering how tired I was last night. But no biggie. Felt tight and smooth.
