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!
