    Can't think of one!

    Ok, I'm new to this thing. I read a couple to see what they were like. I got here by looking up "weightlifing joke" on google. I brought up the "Lame Joke of the Day!" and they're lame...but yet great! Anyways I started lifting last year in late October. Powerlifting season . I was the only eighth grader on the team (I'm 14, my name is Jade, harhar...just thought I'd let ya know). Needless to say (not really) I whooped everyone's ass! I made it to state, but because of the fact that I didn't have a high school transcript I couldn't go. I went to watch nationals with my friend Jece (who was in nationals and took first )and I watched my weight class, and I would have been third. So I guess you could say that's one heck of an achievement. But on with this thing.

    My measurements right now are:
    Chest=37''
    Shoulders=43''
    Waist=29''
    Biceps=14''
    Lower arm (like I know what that's called)=11''
    Thighs (or whatever they're called)=my guess would be about maybe 22''? Forgot to measure them! And right now I'm in Computer Programming, and I don't think he would understand what measuring me thighs has to do with this class!
    Calves=maybe uh...I think I'm off on my thighs..oh well... maybe 18-20''
    well, if I knew more info I saw people writing down I forgot it. So that's all that I have.

    My lifts are measly for what I want...but they're good for any girl my age..and compare to most guys my age. (oh yeah, I'm also in football, hence the name...and I can outlift most of them..sadly!) But here are my lifts:
    Bench=135 lbs (yuck, I want more...but I'm the first girl to ever do that in this high school...of 1500...so it's not huge, but not too tiny)
    Deadlift=240lbs (315lbs this season, you watch)
    Squat=185lbs (225lbs by the end of powerlifting season)
    Hipsled/Hipslide (call me pathetic, I don't know what it's called, I don't like it, but they get mad when I do squats in football)=290lbs
    Clean=125lbs (I've only competed with them once, so I'm not all too worked up over them. I got first and Best lifter...) (Oh yeah, I've gotten first everywhere I've went)
    Incline Dumbell Press=25 lbers. (lame, I know)
    Decline Cambred Bar=75 lbs
    Skull Crushers=45lbs
    Calf Raises=135lbs (both legs, not just one)
    Safety Squat=160lbs (somewhere in there...I usually just add weights)

    EIKS! If only I put this much effort into my homework! (nah, kidding, I'm a straight "A" student!)

    Ok, so if anyones got any tips on how to raise those, I'd greatly appreciate it! Or maybe some tips on helping me with being the only girl on the football team!! Any chicks on here that are/were in football?

    Lol, I'm 245 lbs and my calves are 18.5"!

    Great lifts, you are only 14 and already stronger than 97% of the women on the planet. Hard work and dedication will carry you far if you stick with it. Good luck!

    Home at last! The football game seemed to take forever, we lost 16-8! Oh well, next week! Anyways, the moment we've all been waiting for....17'' calves and 24'' thighs. As for my powerlifting workout. It goes a little something like this...I'm going to post a different workout everyday...to make life easier on me.

    BENCH:
    week 1= 5*55 5*61 3*64 ??*67
    week 2= 5*61 6*64 3*67 ??*70
    week 3= 5*64 5*67 3*70 ??*76
    week 4= 5*67 5*70 3*76 ??*82
    week 5= 3*70 3*76 2*82 ??*85
    week 6= 3*76 3*82 2*85 ??*88
    week 7= 3*82 3*85 2*88 ??*92
    week 8= 3*85 3*88 2*92 ??*94

    (I'm not sure what to do when you run out of weeks, last year in powerlifting when we got done with the first meet [8 weeks] we remaxed and started at week 4)

    Bench Day Auxiliaries:
    Chest:
    Heavy Close Grips
    3*5
    Incline D-bell Bench
    3*6
    Triceps:
    Skull Crushers
    3*8
    Tri-pushdowns
    3*8
    Heavy Dumbell Extentions
    3*8

    There is a twice a week ab workout. I always did this on squat day (because it took the least time) and my day off (because I had nothing else to do)

    Ab workout:
    Crunches
    3*12
    Incline Board Twists (w/ medium med. ball)
    3*12-15
    Straight Leg Raises
    3*12-15
    Platforms
    2-1 minute interval

    For some reason there is another Ab workout stapled to the back of the pack, I will copy that another day, I'm tired, played almost the whole game. See ya later! and Peach out!

    Here's a lovely list! haha...well I've been moved around so many times!

    Currently the coach'll put me in any given game at these positions. (I come from a small team with not too many backups [a team of 20]) I play starting left tackles (on offense of course) starting strong safety (defense) and when I'm out he'll occasionally put me in as nose tackle, contained tackle, right and left guard, and right guard. I have played a little at Full back and one play at center and one play at tight end. So basically, I know what everone does!

    To answer someone else's question of how I got into powerlifting, well...my dad's friend's step-son was in powerlifting and mentioned that they didn't have very many girls. So Joe (my dad's friend) mentioned it to me. And I've been the person that was in every single sport (which usually meant two a season) just to keep myself fit. And I did enjoy lifting weights, and powerlifting is our big school sport I guess, so I got into it in eighth grade. Outlifted most my competition (I say most because of Miss Katie Van Dusen, a friend of mine, who could double me almost anyday) by about 150 lbs! It was great. There's no going back. I guess that's how I got into it! And one last thing to say before I really go to bed! Nationals/Texas! HERE I COME!!

    Uh, back in computer programming once again. Well, no lifting in school tonight and no football tonight (varsity game...I'll probably go watch, catch up on the gossip...all that ****) The game doesn't start until 7:00. I might have pep band, but either way that'll still give me enough time to run/walk/jog home (3 miles). I'll probably lift tonight after I get home. Who knows, go downstairs (the weightroom) and probably work on some cleans, and Bowflex's version of bench press (Even though I can do 310 for 12 reps and then hold it for thirty seconds and repeat that three times) Then I'll probably do some v bar pull downs, and end it with some military presses (at about 100 [99 to be exact] lbs). Then hit the hay, because I have to get up at about 3-4 in the morning to go help my mom with a craft show (what she does for a living). So I'll get my workout there carrying 75 fire rings in and out of the trailer and to the cars of people who buy them. I'm not sure if I'll lift that night. It'll all depend on who's online most likely. Or if I have to work. The neighboring town's homecoming is tonight, so I'm sure there'll be no one online to talk to. They'll all be at the dance (most of the people I talk to online are from that town). Well, before my teacher starts walking around I'm going to go. Talk at ya later!

    I couldn't help but notice Elpietro's Jack Handey's things! I love those. LOL But in our pass books in school they have little quotes at the bottom to give you "inspiration" and there was only one good one in my mind (Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work--Thomas Edison [smart, smart man!]). So I took the book Deepest Thoughts--So Deep They Squeak and wrote those in below every other one :evillaugh Ok, now that I got that out of my system, class is about 15 minutes from being over and I suppose I ought to get something done. Later

    Ok, so the walk home didn't go so good, weather in WI is terrible...rain, rain, and heavy rain. There is a bad accident 15 miles north of us. Football is still on, so it'll have to be that and lifting later, peace out! *thunder*

    That's a link to my hotornot pic. Which I'll admit...I'm not 18 But either way, the pic is 2 years old. I still basically look the same with those clothes on. I'm stonger than in the pic, but you wouldn't be able to tell, and my hair is about an inch longer. I finally decided to start growing it out again. I think that is about it. I'll get one on my profile when I find one. My powerlifting/football coach just got the pictures back from the powerlifting meet this June, so maybe I'll see if those are any good. Peace out...football game...GO PHILLIPS LOGGERS

    Back from the game! I think we lost. LOL...I don't know...my friends and I were in the school. I took a Saturday off paintballing tomorrow to help my mom out at a craft show. Came home from the game and dad will be able to go to the craft show, so I don't have to. But I mine as well go, because it's too late to make any arrangements for rides now. Oh well, next time! I probably won't lift at all tonight. I carried enough people on my back, that's enough of a workout! Plus, I ran reps around the track, not sure how fast/slow I was going, but I made it 14 times around the track. Uh, so, I supposed I could sent ya'll another workout. How tonight I send you the "other" ab workout (this is the one we're supposed to do...I think)

    Ab Workout:

    3 sets to failure

    Lower Abs (pick 2)
    Partner Pushes
    Hanging Leg Ups (straight or bent)
    L-sits (straight or bent)
    6'' Leg Holds

    Upper Abs (pick 2)
    Platforms
    Decline Bench Crunches
    Med Ball Crunches
    Butterfly Crunch
    Cable Crunches
    Swiss Ball Crunches

    Obliques (pick 1)
    Swiss Ball-Med Ball Twists (w/partner)
    Dumbell Side Crunches
    Decline Med Ball Twists
    Side Hypers

    There ya go! The ab workout!

    Anyone got any advice on how to pull 150lbs up a towel! Haha, how can I improve my towel pull-ups. Or just pull ups for that matter! I can do the most Tricep pull-ups out of any girl in our school (we had a contest start of the year..all girls and all guys) I can do 2!! Nice Huh!
    Peace out!

    The best way to improve towel pull ups is to do towel pull ups. Do some ladders and maybe end with a long slow (like 20 second) negative from the hang.
