Sorry that I’ve been gone for so long! I’ve been doing lots of powerlifting stuff still, but give me two more weeks and I’ll write yall all about it (I got a competition coming up!)
And also, my car is flipping falling apart and I’ve been thinking about getting another car.
So I’ve disappeared for quite a while, and that’s my bad.
I hit this kind of mental rut about powerlifting and it carried into a physical rut. I wasn’t making gains, I was struggling on weights that were below my 5-rep max; I’m not sure if it is because my gym doesn’t have any kind of central air and it’s been in the 90 degree temps for’ever, or other chaotic events happening in my life.
I have noticed some small changes in my body form. I’m not getting smaller (sadly), my clothes are fitting funny (also very sad); but my back fat is slowly going away, my legs are looking better than ever, and my arms are showing some sort of definition now. Perhaps all this heavy weight lifting is paying off.
Also, Pokemon Go is all the rage at the moment. It’s making me actively go outside into the heat and search for virtual animals, lol. My Bae is also very into it, and we’re on competing teams, it’s starting to get crazy with how competitive we are against each other. She is always be one or two levels ahead of me. *angrily shakes fists in the air*
I forgot to mention it but I am deadlifting in the 140lb. range, and instead of using the combo under/over hand-grip, I decided to chalk up my hands and try it. And while it’s so basic sounding, I was really hyped about using the chalk.
AND the chalk helped out a lot. A little bit goes a long way.
I went on a 5-day long trip to New York City, and took a break from 3-workout sessions. Last night was my first night back at the gym since my trip and it was brutal, I can’t even. I’m not sure if I can survive taking such a long time off from the weights again. I was so close to triple digits in weights for bench press but I failed my sets. Hopefully, I can regain my muscles after a week, but we’ll see.
But I will say that my trip was fun!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of those who read my blog!
I don’t have much to say other than I hope you all enjoyed spending time with your mother, and family.
I am a bad child and didn’t really get my mom anything so my Babe put some flowers to give to my mom. I’m so lucky!
Well, actually, the only neck I’m breaking is my own.
Who the hell strains the muscle in their neck while foam rolling?
The answer would be: this moron right here.
And also, who strains their tricep while working on triceps?
The answer is also: this moron right here.
I helped The Babe move from the old location to the new location last weekend and it totally wiped me out. My deadlifting skill and form were very useful for picking up boxes and putting them down.
