Suited, wrapped (broke a nail, grrrr) and belted.... Webby spotted me thru the heavier sets and James checked my depth - managed 3 - 4 reps at 100kg, 110kg, 2 at 115kg. All borderline depth Attempted a single at 120kg - went down but couldn't power up - well and truly wasted had nothing left in me. Will be back next week to go heavier without doing so many warmup sets.
So what did I learn, tips, hints suggestions?
My knees are rolling in
- - need to do more abductor work
- - squatting in runners = NO. Need a solid base, wedge heel (hopefully the squat boots will arrive soon)
- - stance is quite wide (however this is comfortable for me)
- - Try wearing a T-shirt over my crop top
- - Webby noted every time I get out of the rack I re-adjust my left hand grip - must get grip right before I come out of the rack.
Try warming up on the bike and do less warmup sets
Home knackered by 8.45pm. Slump in the chair to watch Desperate Housewives and have my last meal of the day - Chicken schnitzel. Treat myself to 4 choc almonds while reading in bed later.....
Up at the sparrows fart..... 5.20 am get dressed for my run, bags packed for work and off.... Legs are not too bad - pretty stiff and swollen behind the knees from the wraps. At the tan around 6.10am. Same route as usual, 25 mins. 3k, 5min run/1min walk intervals. I've plotted it on maymyrun.com just need to figure out how to imbed in here. Might have to ask coolrunner Gronk since he's been able to do it in his blog. Here's the link anyway. rivertanrun
Crap day in the office constantly paged. Had to postpone my bench session with Shaz as I had 3 P1 bugs and one of them was just not going to go away by 3pm which I would have needed to leave by to get the bench session in. Finally managed to set the bug back in the customers court by about 4.30pm.
Tried various places on the net looking for chalk in block form - plenty of climbing places have it in sock like things but I want a block..... Cannot get one for love nor money..... If anyone knows of a reliable supplier let me know... please!
Ordered a pair of suit slippers from Inzer along with a pair of groove briefs - Groovy Baby! LOL
Longer knee wraps and wrist wraps from Titan. Why? Because I liked the blue stripe of the Titan ones better than the red stripe in Inzer ones.
Squat suit. Inzer z-suit size 30 or even better Inzer Hardcore size 30
Deadlift suit Inzer Max DL size 30
Anyone wishing to help out a poor struggling powerlifter can order any of the above items off the Inzer website and ship to:
