GIRLS CAN LIFT

A Dainty Diary of Lifting

Three good things

1 Comment

Good things that happened today:

  1. I finally tightened my lever belt because it had been feeling too loose all week. One notch tighter and it was the perfect fit.
  2. I deadlifted 335×2. I wanted three and there was some insane thoracic rounding (enough for Cam to ask if I was working on a special kind of deadlift) but I am still pleased with myself. The upper back issue is nothing new, I’ve never pulled a triple at this weight and this is my heaviest pull in competition.
  3. I ate more borscht.

  1. the first two looked fast once you’d broken the floor. I’m sure they didn’t feel that way though 🙂
