Upper Body

From now on I will be having wednesday as another benching day. Though today I just did a lot of upper body work because of time purposes/ lack of benches. I don't mind though maybe adding some extra times a month just for what I did today. Though to be honest I wasn't focused and had a lot on my mind during this session.

Oh and I have decided to do the intramural meet. Now just to figure out what some prospective weights should be. I was thinking about maybe doing my previous maxes... or just work up to them and see how I feel in these coming weeks.

As the meet nears, just ask us here or in the gym or a combination of the two about openers. It'll be easy to get a handle on it, I promise. Also, I routinely wait for a bench for freaking 20 minutes now.

We'll make sure you're ready, Sammie. Even if you need help choosing attempts at the meet, the head table will be there to give you feedback.

I have not felt the same strength/motivation since I did 135 a few weeks back. On the last few reps on each set I kept second guessing myself which would lead me to cave in with my knees. I am trying to focus hard on working to get that leg strength before the meet (If I do the intramural meet).

Deadlifts

forgot since it was kilos x5
forgot since it was kilos x4
forgot since it was kilos x3
72kg 4x3
~Notes: Keough pointed out to me that I cave in my knees when pulling. Closer stance didn't help but need to focus strengthening my adductors or abductors (i have honestly been doing both anyways). Alright session in all honesty.

Lat pull down
tricep work

Your knees cave in a lot while squatting, as well. This will just be something you have to work at over a long period of time. Keep on asking for input and we'll get it figured out.

Yeah I have noticed that since the beginning and I am trying to get a grasp on it. But like what Kyle had said to me I now know how to engage my muscles more.

Whether or not if I do the intramural meet (find out tmrw i hope) I will be starting a new cycle. I only think my bench has gotten stronger, but I know i need to work more on building my base. There is a long list of stuff I need to improve. I want to compete this fall so I know i will work hard this summer with my coach to build strength. Though I am not sure what program I will be running yet.

~I don't know what was up but it just wasn't a good training day. Very shaky hands with being unstable on the bench just did not work. who knew? But I am feeling good with how I am at least on my bench. I am doing the intramural meet! Finally its good to know for sure. Doing deadlift on friday, bench again sunday, not sure if I want to throw in an extra squat session on saturday. But will be done after sunday for sure.

Deadlift

worked up to 75kg
for 6x2
60kg for singles
~I guess i lift with pidgin toes. Anderson helped me with my stance. And now I am going to incorporate more singles after my work sets for form purposes. It feels so weird but most of my singles just were awful. So I really have to keep focusing on my form. Thanks for the help Anderson!

Bench

bar x4
30kg x3
35kg x2
37.5kg 4x1 (PR)
35kg 4x4

Accessories
DB Rows
Incline DB press

I know I can hit 35kg in the meet but I am not sure 37.5kg. It was definitely moving slow, so that is why I decided to drop the weight and add reps. I know come meet day I will know how I am feeling and if its good I'm hoping to hit 37.5kg, but won't be counting on it.

Thinking of opening 135 for squats because I feel solid with that weight. Though I know I have never had someone spot behind me so that might throw me off and might go a little lower. But thats just I feel comfortable with for now.

Deadlifts seem harder to find a good opener. So Im open to input on figuring this one out. Same goes for the rest if these seem too high/low whatever.

Did you hit 37.5 kg for 4 singles or for 1 set of 4?

Also here is my logic on kinda where stand for the weight:

I get self conscious when i can directly see someone staring at me when Im lifting. Bench Im okay with benching because you look at the ceiling. Squats will be different because never have I ever had someone behind me when I max out. So it will be harder to make what I did this fall. And my deadlift session this past friday was off because almost every set there was people helping with my form and stuff. So that's where I am coming from.

I can see what you mean. Just my experience from spotting people, there is no judgment whether male or female because i am making sure the lifter is staying safe and i am not touching them unless help is needed. Same for spotting, no judgment except on depth and i am certain i speak for everyone on the team when i say no judgment will be present Very Happy

Just ask the spotter to stay a little farther back during your attempts.
