Today was definitely interesting. I was feeling pretty brutal from lack of sleep and being stiff as a board. Deadlifts felt very slow today so I cut down the sets.
Willie also brought up my weight and where he thinks I should be and he’s right. I simply feel like a fat powerlifter right now, it got to me at first and made me feel pretty shitty but I picked up what he said and am taking action. Since I began powerlifting about 5 years ago I’ve constantly been gaining weight. I was 16 when I started so I wasn’t done going through puberty yet and have put on some muscle since but realistically I have a lot of room to move. When I started lifting I weighed about 160lbs And since then I’ve put on 40lbs… I’ll admit my eating isn’t great, in fact it’s pretty shitty and I know and will work on it. I’m currently hovering around 200lbs and am determined to get down to 180bs before February 2014. I will do whatever it takes; my end goal is too compete at 165lbs by 2015.
Anyways, enough ranting about my struggles… My workouts for the last 2 days consisted of a heavy bench day and a light deadlift day which wasn’t so light.
This should have been easier than it was but honestly I can’t say I remember the last time I did more than 2 reps paused so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.
