You know, I weighed in a little heavy today, but I feel strong. I’ve had some nutritional vacation time lately as I realized I don’t plan to compete at a lower weight class for some time.  Right now, I’m focused on getting strong. And apparently enjoying wine with my husband.

Squats felt very solid today.  I jumped up to 290 and felt very much in control of the weight. I did have to chalk up a bit because it was very sweaty in here and the bar was slipping on me.

Then I moved onto log.  160 has never felt this light to me.  I hit 3 on my first set and lost my air, missing the 4th rep. I probably could have used more time before the second set and had to reclean for the third rep. on the third set I was determined to hit 4 reps, but I did need to reclean it to get there. I was very happy with how well this moved today.

I did two rounds of rack holds at 120#. That was a lot of work.  Then I did some hammer kicks to get my hips moving and superset that with the barbell hip thrusts.

I finished up with the calf raises.  Very happy with today’s results and a little sad that they lowered the log in my next contest.
