Trei's Attempts at Lifting Heavy Shit
Heya, so I finally decided to getting around to making a log. I started lifting last November, and realized that I absolutely love it, and so I decided I wanted to compete. I compete in the CPF. So far I've been to one competition (June 12th), and will be going to more. Minimum 1 a year, likely more along the lines of 2-3. Next competition is December 10th, I'm just waiting for the signups to open up.
I also intend to, at some point, get into strongman stuff, but that'll be next summer at the absolute earliest. For now I'm just focusing on lifting.
I followed SS primarily, and will soon be moving onto TM. I just finished a cycle of Smolov Jr. for my bench, and tested my 1RM today: Started at 205#, worked up in increments of 5 and hit 225#. Tried 230, but lost it about 4 inches off my chest. Either due to psyching myself out or just running out of steam.
My lifts and any other relevant stats are as follow:
Squat: 340# 3x5 (working back up to it after tearing a ligament in my foot, Monday was 305)
Bench Press: 225# 1x1
Deadlift: 390# 1x5, or 395# 1x2 (after bench RM testing)
OHP: 120# 1x5

Damn homie, you gained some weight. You gonna be 242 at the next meet?
Same weight as at the meet, actually. Was 107kg as I recall.
I'm actually planning on losing a little bit (rather slowly so as to reduce how much it effects my lifting) 'cause I don't like carrying around a backpack on my stomach.
Oh, I thought you were in the 100kg class. My mistake.
It's okay, you live in Whitby. I understand.
Whitby is awesome, we have K-OS, that girl from Criminal Minds, a couple NHL players, and poRICH.
