Keep your eyes peeled early next week as we've got an interview with ridiculously strong Crossfit Norwest athlete Jessica Coughlan! We were lucky enough to chat with her about her training, competition and mindset amongst other things. Monday!
I did 7 reps at 102.5kg for my squat and 6 deadlifts at 120kg. Both of those weights were my 1RM six months ago so I really am pleased about that.
I ate three bowls of cornflakes last night which is also a six month PR for cereal consumption.
What have you got?
Keep your eyes peeled later this week as we've got an interview with Sydney based physio genius, Antony Lo! We were lucky enough to get some of his insights into injury, pain, technique, longevity in training and some other issues that are particularly relevant to women who lift.
1 x 5 @75 PB
1 x 2 @107.5 PB
Then I bashed my head against a wall with my deadlifts again…because I'm a sadist with no life.
1x 2 @132.5
Let's pretend I only wanted two of everything I went for anyway and call it a good week.
Two beers and two dinners will be had in consolation.
I hope someone had a better day than me?
SQUAT 1 x 5 @ 105
These were actually pretty good. Not too slow. A little forward on the first three but Yip, I was totally stoked to get this today :)
I fucked up my bench and didn't check the weights before my final set so ended up repeating a warm up weight thinking it was my working set. I was kinda surprised how light it was and took 6. After a long break, I couldn't get it together on the next attempt with 75kg…4 reps again.
Let there be nacho bowls.
Thank you J Cole.
SQUAT 1 x 5 @ 102.5
The first four were pretty standard slog but the fifth was super slow. I had enough time to plan my next meal which at first I thought would be Japanese fried chicken with mayonnaise but then I decided it would be steak - for the first time in 24 years, and then I got the rep so, woot. PB
DEADS 1 x 2 @ 132.5
I didn't get the third rep off the ground. I'm not sure why I didn't reset and go for the final rep but I didn't. It's still a 2 rep PB.
Let there be steak.
Thank you Sepultura.
