    molly's training log

    Hi folks,

    Barracuda urged me to sign up & post my training here - I see many of my brothers from East End Barbell too: John Bernor, Chris Rodgers, Chris Taylor, Rob Spitzner & Chase Trusnovic - I miss you guys.

    Now we (barracuda & myself), are in Florida training with Tony Conyers & another fine crew of misfits.

    I’ve been training in powerlifting for a little over a year & rehabbing a long term back injury.
    Squats & deads have been on hold for several months while I did a strengthening program of overhead squats & adductor/abductor work with bands, as per Chris Taylor.



    sat june 21_08
    first squat day since feb:
    45 x 10
    65 x 5
    95 x 3
    135 x 3
    185 x 3 (knee wraps)
    these were great: weight was easy to walk out & felt really light – depth was much better & pain-free.


    Sun morning we met up with some of the crew for a 5 mile park run/walk.

    Hey Molly!! We miss you guys so much. I'm glad that you will be keeping your training log here now though. It's also very good to see that you have been able to pull from the floor. Hopefully I will be able to make a trip down there to visit or you guys will come up here to visit and see what the misfits have turned the Church basement into.
