The Iron Ostrich Training Log
 
Haven't posted on here in a couple of years. Decided to start this log as the next step in reaching my powerlifting goals, should be easier to review and track my lifts. Currently 8 weeks out from a competition.

240x2
275x2
320x2

Next week I will work up to my opener (405) for a double, straps down. Wasn't in the cards tonight. Haven't done narrow stance squats in over a year, going to use them more often to help with deadlift. Short workout as I started late tonight.

Good luck with your powerlifting prep.

I have to ask, is "Iron Ostrich" your nickname? Do you have really long legs? : )

Obsidian 03-08-2013 10:55 PM

Hah, yes, I have really lanky, ostrich legs. My calves are non-existent.

Tried my suit on for a couple of reps on deadlifts, will still pull raw at the meet. Energy levels were decent. Form/technique still needs a lot of work with suit.

Starting to put my suit straps up from here on out to get used to the tension. Felt pretty good today, really focused, weights moved pretty easy.
5 weeks of training left. Should be able to hit a PR at the meet.

What are your previous PR's?
Are you lifting at that 181 pound class?

Obsidian 03-26-2013 09:47 PM

My previous PRs were 440 squat, 259 bench, and 419 deadlift.
Yes, I will be in the 181 class.
