A new PR….it makes me happy!

Hello all….I haven’t had too much news lately on the strength front, other than moving to the Y….but tonight was another personal record for me – what a Christmas present!  I am 27lbs away from lifting my body weight in a Sumo-deadlift.  Is that something or what?  I lifted 133lbs (the bar + 40kgs) from the floor tonight.  So excited.

I wasn’t even lifting 100 lbs in October – and then I had my breakthrough night.  Since then I have been inching my way up again, some weeks doing more, some weeks doing less.  I find the more reps I do, the tighter my back gets and so I am choosing to do less reps every week.  I was feeling good tonight, so I just kept on adding weight.  I went down to lift 133lbs and I hesitated, then I just set my mind, showed up, and did it.  No thinking, just doing.  Sometimes it works!

More good things to come in 2011!!!!  I can feel it!
