Girl On Fire

It’s Manic Monday, it is past my bedtime, I am most definitely tired and ready for bed, but first I must blog! I could do it with my eyes closed if I wanted…just saying! Still, this post might be a little scattered and choppy.

It was a good day for Manic Monday, but it was an even better day for the final heavy squat before competition in 12 days!

1a. squats-low bar

without belt: 45 x 8, 95 x 5, 135 x 5, 165 x 3

with belt: 185 x 3, 205 x 1, 220 x 1, 230 x 1, 235 x 1 PR, 225 x 2 PR, 205 x 2

1b. bench press-competition grip

43 x 8, 70 x 5, 85 x 4, 100 x 3, 110 x 2, 120 x 1 This had decent speed was really quite ugly, so I did it again. 120 x 1 best rep at this weight yet, 115 x 2, 115 x 3 PR, 115 x 3

The sets at 115 pounds were solid with decent speed. At one point during the bench, Michael commented that he sometimes forgets that I’m a girl. I laughed. I understand how he meant it, but I don’t have the mental clarity to explain it right now.

2a. pause squats-2 second pause

without belt: 145 x 3

with belt: 165 x 3, 185 x 1, 205 x 1 PR

2b. chest-supported rear laterals with 8 pound dumbbells x 15 x 3 sets

3. toes to bar x 11, x 6 + 6 hanging straight leg raises
