    Actually it’s not “as usual.” The Maryland state chairman has always been great at giving a heads up. I’m wondering whether this was out of his control. I’ve heard mixed things about this meet director, so maybe it was his doing?

    Now that I’ve cooled down about it, I’m just glad I saw it within minutes of it posting so that I could get in. As I think of it, there aren’t many 52 kg lifters so even if I had been shut out of registration I wouldn’t doubt a kind and carefully crafted email would probably get me in.

    Tuesday 7/3 lower body training

    Hip was feeling great! HRV said go f&&& s&&& up! Annnd then my son decides he needs to have multiple meltdowns during childcare. Sigh. So this is all I got done between going back and forth and waiting for a squat rack. Sigh. Welp, tomorrow I can train uninterrupted because I won’t have the kids in tow.

    Dynamic warmup

    Leg extension:
    30 x 8
    40 x 8
    3 x 50 x 8
    50 x 8 drop 40 x 8 drop 30 x 8

    Lying leg curl:
    30 x 8
    40 x 8
    3 x 50 x 8
    50 x 8 drop 40 x 8 drop 30 x 8

    Leg press calves:
    8 x 150 x 8

    Squats (to competition depth btw):
    bar x 10
    2 x 75 x 5
    2 x 95 x 5
    116 x 5
    138 x 4
    149 x 4
    (I had planned 4x4, oh well)

    Helped a 180 lb, 18-yo lacrosse player on bench press. Coach told him go do 4 sets of singles at 225 and he got pinned under his first attempt (idiot coach for not knowing his athlete well enough). So I gave him a few tips and helped him get past his sticking point, maybe took 10 lbs off at most on set 2 and maybe just 5 lbs on set 3. So we talked about 10 minutes while I was changing out of my squat shoes and knee sleeves and into my knee socks and deadlift shoes, and then I asked him did he want to try a fourth set. So the kid sets up like he’s done it for years and absolutely SMOKES his last single with no help. He easily had another 10 lbs in him! He was elated! :-)

    Sumo deads:
    135 x 1
    155 x 1
    175 x 1
    195 x 1
    210 x 1

    Time was up in childcare:-(

    Did some BW walking lunges in my pool.

    The really great news is I tried a little breaststroke kicking in my pool and IT DIDN’T HURT AT ALL! That is PHENOMENAL! I tried it once when we moved in 5 years ago and it was without a doubt the worst pain I’ve ever felt, 10/10, and swallowed a lot of water from the shock of the pain, hadn’t tried it since. So people this is a HUGE deal! Very happy! And worth not getting in all my planned training today!

    Sunday 7/8 lower body training

    Kids had a swim meet on Saturday so I moved my training to Sunday. Just 2 more weeks of this and life gets a little closer to normal

    Dynamic warmup

    Squats:
    bar x 1 10-sec descent plus 10 regular speed reps
    95 x 5
    95 x 5
    116 x 5
    138 x 3
    149 x 3
    2 x 160 x 3 - these felt OK so I thought I’d try to match my rep PR at this weight
    1 x 160 x 6 - REP PR! I cannot believe this went as well as it did! Vid posted on IG. Well this WAS my 5RM but no longer! Calculated 1RM is 193 which just so happens to be the number I’m hoping to squat at my next meet! I was worried about opening with 171 but this confirms to me that I’m selling myself short if I don’t go for it.

    Sumo deads:
    I kept these conservative on the weight considering I just did max effort on squats
    135 x 1
    155 x 1
    175 x 1
    195 x 1
    210 x 1
    6 x 221 x 1 - with a little over 60 sec between pulls. No pain on these OR the squats

    No pain but I was tired and all of the above took longer than I had planned. Headed home for some family time by the pool.

    Been a crazy week in Sunny’s Family Circus! Two swim meets, my hubb’s bday, and my mom and sis visiting from NJ. Still trained every day through it, just not as much volume as I would have liked.

    12 weeks out from my next powerlifting meet woo hoo, woo hoo.

    So here’s what went down in today’s training. Certainly not ideal because of yesterday’s swim meet AND company AND having to train in the late afternoon instead of the morning but whatever.

    Sunday 7/15 lower body training

    Dynamic warmup

    Ab wheel:
    3 x 15

    Squats:
    bar x 1 x 10 sec descent then 10 regular speed reps
    2 x 95 x 5
    116 x 5
    138 x 3
    149 x 3
    3 x 154 x 3 - felt solid as it should for this weight. dropped these down a few pounds from what I’ve been doing to start my new training cycle with a progressive overload the next few weeks. We’ll see where this takes me.

    Sumo deads:
    135 x 1
    155 x 1
    175 x 1
    195 x 1
    6 x 209 x 1 - with about 45 sec rest then start next setup, so about 60 sec between pulls. No pain, felt very balanced, very smooth

    RDLs:
    3 x 135 x 8

    Trap bar farmer’s walks:
    3 x 105 x up and back through the weight room

    Finished the rest at home

    Unilateral standing calves:
    3 x 5 x 5-sec hold at top and 3-sec hold at bottom, each leg

    Glute circuit (no rest between sides/exercises):
    30 reps side lying clam ss 30 reps side lying abduction
    30 reps single leg glute bridge ss 30 reps hip extension on elbows
    30 reps single leg swing ss 30 reps fire hydrant
