    I'm more inclined to agree with raivyne. On Sunday, I made sure to grab a 20 kg bar rather than that unmarked one.

    I meant to train yesterday, but... I decided to be social with my coworkers. I was also social today, but didn't let stop me from kinda not sober squats.

    HBBS
    3 x 5 x 185
    Knee slide issues, bah

    Bench
    2, 1, 2 x 110 @ rpe fuckkkkkk benching with a weightlifting bar
    4 x 100 @ fuck this shit
    Sliding around on the bench due to slippery yoga pants and slippery bench and slippery t-shirt. My shoulder is irritated now because the bar rolling caused me to flare my elbows and owwwww time for ibuprofen brigade

    Deadlift, in heels and no belt
    5 x 235 @ out of breath by the 5th but ez
    2 x 5 x 200
    My deadlift is back, guys

    Press
    1 x 82.5
    1 x 87 @ ezpz
    1 x 91 @ 9.75
    0 x 95 @ fail
    It was feeling really nice until 91, when I blacked out halfway through the rep, standard Nanette stuff at heavy weight. 95 barely got to my forehead and then it just went down.

    61.45 kg, post breakfast and fully dressed for training. RIP upper body lifts

    Sunday 8/20/17
    Front Squat
    5 x 3 x 150
    Cheap 4" belt is amazing. Can't wait to get paid to buy a real nice 4" belt.

    Competition Bench
    3 x 110 @ wtfffffff
    3 x 105 @ y is this so hard
    3 x 100 @ 10
    2 x 5 x 95 @ 8.5, 9
    4 x 95 @ 11 (failed the fifth)
    5 x 85
    3 x 6 x 65
    RIP upper body lifts due to weight loss and low frequency lifting. At least the competition bumper plates look real pretty.

    Some nice gear there, where you working out of? Permanent gym or you going to switch to a weightlifting gym soon?
    Lifts will come back, I'm sure. Once you get life settled and can get some more frequency in everything will bounce back and then some.

    I'm training out of a climbing gym. The secret is that it has pretty good lifting equipment, with the exception of no powerlifting-specific bars (only weightlifting and hybrid bars). It will be my permanent gym, at least for a year (since I paid for a year upfront to save myself initiation fee + one free month), and maybe I'll sign up for a weightlifting fundamentals class elsewhere when I have a more set routine.

    I'm not too worried about the upper body lifts, tbh. At the moment, I am trying to prevent detraining my upper body as best as possible.

    Also, today marks 10 weeks out! from the Fall Classic. WowWwWwWwWw

    Good to see you back lifting Nanette.

    Well done getting those done!


    I'll try some advice, feel free to ignore.

    I could see from the video that this was very heavy, so I'm guessing that is probably why your elbows/arms was flaring out, making it even more difficult.
    I found that by concentrating on using my lats to keep the elbows in and set my shoulders it is easier to control the bar.
    Also my shoulder problems got better when I got that under control.

    I saw the wall in your instant grams. Get a harness and get up there!
