Thanks, Adrian! It looks like your training is going well too. About to do another log-bombing in a minute...

Volume? On squat? What is that? I'm now switching one of my squat days over to more of a volume-based day. It was an easy day as far as intensity goes for me, but not so much in terms of rep number. Things got better and better as I moved through sets, but frankly, this is admittedly new territory for me. Or, uh, revisited territory since I was probably working in this rep range before I got into powerlifting training.
So now my numbers on one of my squatting days are going to be as embarrassing as they are on one of my bench days. I am hoping this pays off. I think it has with benching.

And then I went and had my MFA show reception and Kyle helped me through that and this whole time period so much because he's kind of incredibly awesome. I know the reduction in school-based stress I can now enjoy will really help keep my training progressing. I'm really not too far away from the next meet (April 20…).

I'm treating this widegrip work as very slowly conditioning my body for taking a wider competition grip. I want to make sure my shoulders are stable enough to handle it, so I try to do a lot of pulling work. We'll see how this works out.
weighted chin-ups
25 x 5 pull-ups because I forgot I was supposed to be doing chinups. I'm an idiot.

Then I had to run in order to make it to our team meeting. Will be doing a lot of makeup accessory work today.
Also, I've moved my lifting schedule around slightly, and it now works MUCH better with my school week. Basically, everything is being done a day later than it was before and I'm losing a recovery day for bench this week.

This is really the only lift that I'm feeling excited about for my met. My other two are reallly on the fence, and I admit to feeling not sure how to think about them as I head towards April 20th. I think I'll be writing a blog post discussing this further.

so…I basically got light-headed during the 150 x 10 and then started to see stars around the fourth rep of the third set. I've had a kind of rough time emotionally in the last day or so, and I basically had a mini-breakdown yesterday for various reasons. This resulted in me feeling so physically shitty that I woke up multiple times during the night with a headache that was still there when I got up early this morning to go teach. I just felt not my best coming into this session but I wanted to get 150 for at least 10 so yay for me, I guess.

Meet results from this past saturday: I rank at #5 (tied with another lifter) in the country in my weight class. My squat ranks at #10 in the 105 lb class, my bench #8, and my deadlift #4. I totaled 611 at this meet and won best female lifter.
After the meet, I did some light work over the week. I'll start logging again with regularity soon, I'm kind of being lazy about it right now. Extra/accesorry day on monday, squat session on Tuesday, light benching wednesday, speed deadlifts Friday with a LOT of accessory work on Wednesday and Thursday. Here's a video with a recap of Wednesday and Thursday:

Many thanks! It was a good meet. My squat is seriously going to have to come up for me to get anywhere near the top three in the 105 class, I think. Rrrrrgh, stupid squatting, I'm terrible at it.
Really appreciate this, Kevin! Thank you. I'm hoping this year will be a big year for me. The weight cutting is new to me and it definitely has an affect on competition. I'm still honestly pretty new to competing (this was my third meet) and I kind of have a lot of experience to gain. Thanks for the support!

would have done more glute and hamstring work but the hamstrings were so damned sore from Saturday's good mornings that I just took it easy because I have a pretty rough squat day tomorrow. Could have toughed it out, decided it wasn't worth it today.

Ugh, not a great week. Psychologically just kind of forcing myself through stuff. Feel disconnected from myself, not happy with myself, etc. It's encouraging that I'm able to pull off relative solid lifting performances with this crap. Finding a rock to hide under for the evening.

As I've discussed online--although not here specifically--I'm moving into a period in which I'm going to put on some mass and see how my strength and body composition play out. I have a rough approach to the diet fleshed out, and I'm going to be tailoring some of my choices regarding accessory work in training to hypertrophy. Frankly, the way I've been approaching it, I already kind of have been. This means I'm choosing the longer road to being ranked in anything at any point--and yes, I somewhat regret this. Mentally and physically, however, I think this is the best choice for me, so I'm going to have to keep that in mind as I work on eating my pride after doing well at 105. I think I have some room to put on muscle, so I'm going to give it a shot. Honestly, I feel like I've yet again learned a lot about myself through this process. I have to define what I really want in lifting or eventually I may drift in a direction that isn't really a fit for me. I'm working on defining what I want right now, and that's difficult because I tend to have a defeatist attitude that says I'm not capable of great things. It's an awful mindset to work with, but it's sort of my default. I really want to set goals that are huge and I end up feeling like an egomaniac when I try to do so. So, lots of mental conflict. That said, if you work for something hard enough and do attain, you deserve it. If I set goals and work for them and make them and am proud of them, I shouldn't be ashamed to express that pride. I'm not sure what it is in my mindset that makes it so hard for me to give myself credit for anything I do or could do. I want to try to break free of that mentality because it severely hampers training outlook.
