This is what my lifting partner Maura Shuttleworth said when she saw my new shoes for squatting! During my visit to the Rifstonian Institute last weekend, Mark gave me a pair of lifting shoes to use for squatting. How lucky am I? Mark Reifkind just so happened to have a pair of shoes that fit me, just hanging around 'Stone's Gym!
Monday is squat day... so here is my first workout training with my new shoes. What a difference good lifting shoes make! I felt like my feet were nailed to the platform. Pretty cool.... Anyway, here is how it all went down...
165X3 for 8 sets
~I knew shoes would make a difference... but... wow, holy stabilization Batman! Rif also gave me some homework for my training, so here is a video at 70% of my 1RM
115X5 for 4 sets
~I was really grooving the new shoes!
3 sets of 2 with 10lbs
2 sets of 2 with 15lbs
~Some of these pull-ups were more like tooth-ups. LOL!
Then Maura joined my kettlebell class for swings, snatches, front squats, single leg deadlifts and abs. Fun stuff!
