Recovery Time
I had a good squat session yesterday that really consolidated my technique. I was in day 4 of my cycle so as the energy was low we don't push it. My knee wraps have aggravated my knee a little today so I am off for a decent hot/cold therapy session this morning.
After that it is coffee with a girlfriend, then a light cardio recovery session later today. My mind really needs this.

The knee is almost better - the wraps cause a nerve impingement on ocassion. It is painful, butnot serious. The phyio released it and was 80% improved immediately.

Hey Lisa

Doris here. just read re comment a little down about lifting. i am just a little curious about the weight you lift as I would like to know what they measure in weight as a whole. so like, you Deadlift 130kg, is that 55kg each side and a20kg olypic bar??? Sori I don't mean to harp on about the same subject. Just trying to understand 'powerlifting'. And in gear, you obviously mean a weight belt and wrist guards??. Yes quite true about how the mind works when you lift. If you say this is too heavy, you will not lift it. But if you are confident in your abiltiy, you will acheive it. Where is your comp, I would be interested in watching to understand more about powerlifting. Dxx

Doris, no problem at all

The weights are total including the bar. The bar is always 20kgs.

I wil do a post about my gear for you.


I am lifting on Sat 26th at 10am in the queen st Mall outside Myer. Love to see you there.
