September 30th to October 4th
I am lifting on 1st October at 10.30am - 8 weeks this Wed
I started back in training last Friday, and have 7 weeks of training before Rod and I fly out to the US. I checked on the nominations last night and there are 8 lifters in my category, another from Aust, 2 USA, 1 NZ, 1 Hong King, 1 Sth Africa and 1 Norway. We are all booked and ready to go , but I have been so busy with Nationals and Bodyworx that I haven't really thought about it too much. I guess I need to focus on the areas I need to improve and see what can be done in 2 months.
I am really pleased with the way I went into, and then recovered from Nationals. I was far more relaxed pre comp, and I think not having to worry about weight or expectations of placing really made a huge difference. My goal at Nationals was to do 3 technically clean squats, which I did. This time for Worlds I am aiming to continue with great squat technique and get more weight on the bar. I also want to consolidate my progress in the bench and take another step toward 80kgs. I am working on my deadlift technique and as such a good equal PB(or close) will make me happy.
My decision to move up a weight category for Nationals and the hypertophy training for it saw me add 4 kgs of lean mass, and I competed at the same bodyfat %. My body obviously loved the extra food and less stress. My goal this next 8 weeks is to increase my lean mass again by another 1kg. That will put my lean mass at about 55kgs. I now need to use that extra muscle for more strength gains on the board.
This is so exciting!
