Happy April! First pic from when I first got the set since I didn’t take a pic today lmao. I worked out w my boyf today & it was one of the hardest lifts ever 😀. I’ve been inconsistent w lifting but I finally have a set routine of MWF so we are back at square one! My boyf is on his way towards becoming a starting strength coach (( @startingstrength )) and I know he’s gonna be the best coach ever one day! 🥳 He even taught me how to low bar squat and it was truly the most painful experience in lifting ever but I’m still gonna work on it. 😳
Low bar squat: 3x5 95lbs - Low bar is definitely something new for me. My upper back is extremely tight so I need to work on stretching it out so I can properly hold the bar! Once I get comfortable with that back pressure and gripping the bar I should be good!! Per google this kind of squat focuses more on the posterior chain which I definitely felt today.
Deadlift: 1x5 155lbs - literally idk where he got these weights but this felt like 200lbs for sure. Focusing on my form, narrow stance, feet pointed a lil bit out, shin one inch from bar, slide up legs, pull from the #slack 😳.
Press: 3x5 55 lbs - literally the worst thing ever. Trying to focus on rebounding my hips while being the most uncoordinated person ever is the worst so don’t judge my form on this bc I’m working on it😤!!
Being taught how to properly do these lifts made me actually feel what I was doing so I actually enjoyed the pain a lil??? This is my journey towards one day being a lil bit of a powerlifter who knows! Honestly, I’ve really enjoyed being back home and with my family and boyfriend. This was a much needed break from my fast paced life back in college. I’ve been getting my work done all week and it just feels AMAZING to be so productive. i hope everyone enjoys their week and stays safe :) ❤️💪🏾💫🌱🥳
