This was all I had done today because I had to get home in time to have a nap, meal prep and get around for an online Webinar (which I ended up waking up late for – only got a glimpse of 30 minutes of it) so hopefully it still counts towards my CEC’s lol. 

P.S I did a two a day today and came in to lift with a friend  — working on triceps

Dynamic speed leg day

Oh the thrills of having to start light again and work my way up to heavier weights. I did good speed work on the Sumo deadlift today, but squats were shaking somewhat. Hopefully, that’s just a sign they are getting used to the weights again. Considering it was low weight today,  it somewhat would worry me if I had a hard time lifting today. Still waiting for muscle memory to kick into overload.

Sumo Deadlift PR’s yesterday

Firstly, I would like to say that yesterday I managed to hit 3 PR’s in my sumo deadlift. Last week I left off at a 25 lb increase to 250 and this week I was able to add 40 lbs more to it, Videos showing my lifts: Sumo PR’s each video is showing different weights starting from 260 — all the way up to 290 🙂 I am to progress & while 290 isn’t all that high compared to more elite powerlifters, it shows I am doing something right in my workouts!
