Precision Pulling by Mike Robertson, M.S., C.S.C.S., U.S.A.W. Deadlift or Die! If I hear one more g
So…. a year ago i started powerlifting/lifting regularly. (The few months of “lifting” off and on before that do not count)
I started December 17th according to this blog, and by New Years my lifts for the end of 2012 (around December 30th) were as follows:
Total: 420lbs/190 kgs
As of December 10th, 2013 lifts are:
I would have liked to add another 5 lbs to my bench, and have a better deadlift. But I am proud of my squat, and I’ll take what I can get. Here’s to another year of lifting some shit.
Oh, and three competitions down. Not bad.
awkward moment in a library on the quiet floor and someones camera flash and shutter go off on the desk next to you…
well this is it
i literally have no other option than to make these exams mine this morning.
its not like my current life paths are based on my grades on anything.
super prepared for one, going in with an A-. not at all fucking prepared for another, going in with barely a B-. If I can just keep those going, things will be alriiiiight.
i honestly can’t wait until I can look back at my lifts right now and think they’re a joke
between final exams, moving back out of my folks house, being in 3-4 different countries, backpacking cambodia for a little while, FINDING AN APARTMENT IN CAMBODIA, and being all over the damn place i feel like i can almost hear my gains leaving me.
maxing out after i write two exams on tuesday.
all the gains are gone.
inb4 somebody tells me not to make excuses.

Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes and Coaches - Greg Everett
This is the best book I have ever found when it comes to explaining the complexity of the Olympic lifts. It is definitely a tough read, I had to read through some pages 2-3 times to grasp concepts, but there is no other text recourse as valuable as this when it comes to comprehending the technical skill involved in these lifts.
reblogging because I’m sure I’ll want to read two of these one day.
thanks, and idk i don’t do home workouts, or anything for my calves or abductors. i guess for your calves you could hold two really heavy weights if you had them and do standing raises? I’ve done them a couple times back in the day and found them good i suppose.
Edit: read the comment below. sorry i don’t know anything about home workouts
In light of my last text post, I dug this beauty out..
