A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Tuesday, May 27, 2014


This last Saturday was the 2014 Nova Scotia Powerlifting Championships. I didn't compete but I did spot and plate load. If you have never tried, it is one hell of a work out. I was still sore this morning. Warm ups today were slow and easy. All the squats felt light until...

Warm Up
Leg Swings and Stretching.
Squats - 135lbs/10, 225lbs/8 reps, 315lbs/4 reps, 405lbs/4 reps.

Power Phase
Squats - 425/miss...

In the hole I felt a tweak in my right leg. This time on the outer leg. Not an injury but I think just a tendon popping into place. It didn't hurt but it threw off my focus and I had to put the weight down.

Pump Phase / Support Work
*alternate the following*
Lying Leg Curls - 2 sets/12, 14 reps/90lbs.
Seated Leg Extensions - 2 sets/14, 16 reps/140, 160lbs.
Standing Calf Raises - 2 sets/12 reps/325lbs.

Feeling good!!!
