Lift Heavy

Last night

So I was all proud of myself for my 245x2 wrapped squat PR. Real pumped. Until I realized that the bar I was using was 50 pounds, not 45… 250x2 in the books baby!

135# Clean and Jerk. I know I jumped forward a tiny bit to receive it and I need a bit more power in my jerk (My jerk just needs some work overall lol), but I’m really proud of how I’m improving! Advice always appreciated - gotta remember I am not very experienced in weightlifting so I need it!

If it was any gym but mine, I might buy it. Ever since they got rid of the weight trees it’s been chaos.

This is NOT how a gym should look first thing in the morning. Put your weights away please.

My shoulder is really bugging me in bench press today. Supposed to be doing paused bench but we will see how much I can get through before it starts actually hurting. I haven’t had a real rest day yet this week though so I guess I can’t complain…

I have a couple more weeks “off-season” before I start my 12-week block, and I am just itching to start doing some work again!

Though there is one thing I do love about off-season ——- FOOD BABY. I have been eating basically whatever I want for a month and it has been beautiful. Gained 2 pounds but I am not worried about it a bit. It will go away once the school year starts again and the MR and I aren’t going out every weekend.

icanbenchyou Thank you! Yup, raw. I have worn wrist wraps and/or a belt on and off for a while to figure out if it would help but I didn’t see it make a big difference. Either way, yes, raw lol. I had been stuck around 155 for a while and FINALLY pushed into 160 and 165 at my last two meets, so getting 175 even in the gym is a huge deal!

squattingunicorn I just find pull-ups and bent over rows etc just so incredibly BORING lol. I guess I gotta work a little so I can ball a lot. And thank yous on the bench! :)

Got added to the 6 selfie train by muscle-and-h8 and thedragonflywarrior.
