Who's that girl?
5 days our from State titles, and I am reflecting over the past 2 years. This pic was my very first lift in a powerlifting competition - 2 years ago this sat. There is 70kgs on the bar, I weighed in at 57.3kgs. Today I weigh 57.6kgs (ok, I have 4.5kgs more muscle), and I will squat 115kgs (approx) in training today. I had 9 out of 9 successful lifts in this comp and totalled 245kgs, and became addicted!
I am soooooooo nervous about Sat, but so pumped at the same time. My goal is to pick a good PB increase 15-20kgs, which will take me one step closer to my Elite qualification. I am doing my last squat and bench today. I still need to decide on the bench shirt I will wear, but once that is done all I need to do is rest .....and get more nervous.

No need to be nervous - you'll blow that PB out of the water and you know it!

This is the best you have ever been going into this comp, right?

Go get it Wonder Woman!
