Default Ldydrgn's adventures in lifting

Today I went to the gym just to see where I was for my first meet Saturday. I know some say I should have just rested the whole week but I am excited to see where I should start on the platform. This will be my starting log and show progression to my goals.


Bench- 135
Dead lift - 185
Squat - eh

1st Goal
Bench - 185
Dead lift - 235
Squat - 155


For the meet I am thinking of :
Bench - 120, 130, 135
Dead lift - 155, 185, 190
No squats as this is push/pull only.

Input guys??

Great stuff Angela! Wish I could help but I've got no experience in PL competition. I'm sure someone will chime in though! Best of luck this weekend!!!

Congrats on competing!

I haven't yet it does seem like you could jump more than 5lb on the last attempt. Just a thought.

Nice, how heavy did they feel...because I'm concerned with your recovery in trends of how close you're meet is.

I know that I should have taken more time off but I really wanted to make sure I felt good where I was. About 7 on your scale with 10 being best. Keep in mind, I am fasting when I work out at 6AM I knew we would be able to eat and carb load for the meet so I didn't stress it. I just wanted the starting numbers to be good. Since my first meet I wanted to let the cards fall where they may.

I didn't do regular sets. I only loaded what I thought would be good numbers to see where to start at. I literally did 4 reps on bench and about 5 reps on deads. Heaviest bench 125lbs... I think If I remember right. And the deads was only 185lbs. They felt comfortable. I made sure not to tax myself.


NOW FOR THE FUN PART!!!!!

The meet today went FANTASTIC! The judging was not as strict as a federation meet would have been but I still tried to maintain the standard. The hubby is working on posting a video I can upload to my Youtube for those that may be interested in checkin it out. This was a very small competition but was EXTREMELY fun and makes me want to compete on a professional level.

Bench
120, 125, 135 and a 140 attempt that failed

Deads
175, 185, 205, 225PR

*yes they did let us do a fourth attempt *

I should have started out higher on the deads but only having done them 5 times EVER in my life I wanted to just see where I stood. I could have pulled more after the fact. The adrenaline kicked in and I felt fantastic! I truly connected with the weights and see my self becoming really good. All I know is I am happy with myself. I have only been lifting heavy for about 6 months... I can only imagine what a few years will bring.

I want to thank BtB and J Byrd for the motivation... Hunter and Babs... a few more that I probably forgot but if you tossed me words of encouragement you know who you are so THANK YOU!! I wouldn't have gone if you guys hadn't been here for me. I hope to get more ladies in my area involved and will be sending them to the forums here.
