With one week left before heading to Sydney Nova Scotia for the 2013 Eastern Canadian Powerlifting Championships its time to hit my opening lifts. Earlier this week I had some issues with my left adductor muscle. With some rest, foam rolling, and some meds I'm feeling better. Not 100% mind you. I still feel a bit of tighness and pain. If Powerlifting was an easy sport they would call it ping pong.
Leg Swings and Lots of Stretching
Bar/10 reps, 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/4 reps, 315lbs/1 rep, 315lbs/1 rep, 365lbs/1 rep, 405lbs/1 rep (opener).
365lbs/4 reps, 505lbs/1 rep (opener).
Both operners were easy and controlled. I know the adductor is a problem still but it's behaving its self. This next week should help some and I should be good for some bigger lifts come competition day. Monday I will hit the Bench Press for my opener then I'll take it easy.
