My weekly review this week starts with the fact that Nationals are 6 weeks away, which means we are getting into the "business end" of my preparation.

My energy levels where a little low at training this week, which I think was a combination of my knee injury, PMS and work stress. Good news is that my weights maintained at the same level as last week, and I pulled it together for a ripper bench session yesterday. I am working on 5-6 reps at present, and my max weight were;

  • Squat 70kgs

  • Dead 100kgs

  • Bench 52.5kgs

I also did;

  • 1 Spin

I had;

  • 3 saunas
  • 2 remedial massage/acupuncture sessions

I appear to be around about 7.5kgs to 10kgs ahead for each lift, in terms of max weight lifted than 6 weeks out for States. All going well this will translate on the day, and I am aiming to take my total over 305kgs. This is my goal, and will give me an A class rating for 56kg div. This means I am eligble for selection in the Australian Team for the Commonwealth titles in December. My current PB is 292.5kgs - so all looks good and I am not being too aggressive in my goals. I just need to keep moving forward in the consitant way that I have been.

My food plan is great, and my weight has dropped a little this week.

It was a tough week, but in the end it all worked out and I am looking forward to really start flying!

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for your comment on my last post.

I'm not feeling so great right now and I have 13+ weeks to go. There are so many things that I'm struggling with and there is a lot of self doubt creeping in.

Am soldiering on hoping that things take a turn for the better soon.
