Friday night deadlift - remembered to pack the talc AND wear shorts. Warmed up 60kg, 90kg, 110kg all conventional style - Raw (belt only). Bumped the bar to 130kg - wouldn't budge... Set up in sumo stance - up it went like picking daisies! 3 more singles at 130kg in sumo stance (all successful) interleaved with conventional attempts (all failed) hmmmm......
Monday night squat - knee wraps in the bag and wearing shorts (I'm so glad the weather is getting warmer) Warmed up: bar, 60kg 2sets, Belt on & 80kg 2sets, knee wraps on & 100kg 4 singles, wraps off back to 60kg for a final set of 8.
Followed up with some explosive work that Leigh had shown me earlier in the year - put the bar on the low crossbars, 40kg only, climb under the bar and starting from the squat position, explode up. 3 sets of 6reps. Finished with llight leg press 100kg 4 sets of 10 reps (mindfull that this puts a lot of pressure on my toe joint. Legs were quite shaky by the time I had finished.
CAPO Victoria is in disarray with both the state president (Webby) and treasurer (James) resigning over the weekend. Starting surfing the net looking at the other powerlifting federations here - Powerlifting Australia being the main one and checking out some powerlifting clubs like Southern Powerlifting Not that I want to leave CAPO but I'm just not sure of its future here in Victoria.
