200 Club!

11 Feb

Good Monday morning friends!

First of all, It’s not really a good morning since there was a cockroch in my office…in my coffee mug this morning.

But, I survived the blizzard that never really hit Albany, NY this weekend.  Some surrounding higher elevations seemed to get it, but all in all it wasn’t THAT bad!

I haven’t been posting much (actually since the 5th, I guess?) BUT since then I’ve had a few PRs and hard workouts. (My youtube site is acting up and still won’t post the correct video…so if the videos don’t match up with what I’m saying, check out my youtube channel!)

Wednesday:
Max Overhead Squat- 145# (20lb PR!)
I was aiming for 155 to beat my friend, but I failed 😦 I was trying to split jerk with a snatch width grip…not easy.

Thursday:
Rest day and coaching day! My coach made fun of me for suggesting dancing as a warm up. Eh, it’s what I do!

Friday:
Max Back squat-> goal= 200
I got 210# that’s a 15# PR for me! AND I joined the 200 club haha

Last time I maxed out on back squat, I pulled something in my bicep/shoulder and couldn’t do anything upper body for a week. I was terrified that would happen again!

Saturday:
Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser- My score was 280!
It was painful…especially after heavy squats the night before but I felt good!
Picture recap:

Sunday:
Lifting with chains and bands…and then the big question,
Do I compete in a strongman competition in 2 weeks? The problem is, I’m a heavyweight in the women’s division and I think I’ll get trampled. But it would be fun to do and it’s only $30?

This week is another competition prep week! I’m extremely nervous about this Saturday’s comp…fingers crossed that I magically get really good at pull-ups!

    Congrats on the squat lady! That’s freaking AWESOME!! I say do it (the strongman comp) but I also am always down for trying new stuff — even if I get squashed (hello GG haha).
