I went to Lisa's yoga class this morning. What a great way to start a Friday! Who would ever think that Powerlifting and Yoga could be such a lovely compliment? Even Dr. Cobb had a laugh. I have been practicing 4 different things.... Kettlebells, Z-Health, Yoga and Powerlifting. I have been doing a little of each almost every day. How weird of a practice is that? Sounds weird... but it seems to serve me well right now.
Deadlift party at The Press Gym tonight. I am starting a new cycle. I have decided to make it primarily a conventional cycle with only a few pulls from a sumo stance. This will be my last cycle before Raw Nationals in July. Here is how it went down...
~I figured I was good for a 265lb conventional deadlift. This was 70% of 265. It felt pretty easy and I ripped of 15 pretty quickly.
~ I am going to do just enough sumo pulls as to not let my form turn to a total pile of crap. LOL!
~I super-set the RDL's with Chin-ups.
~I have decided I should have some better looking biceps. So, I am going to add chins into the mix. Plus, pull-ups are getting boring. I got a little greedy with the 30lbs. Two reps at 25lbs was pretty hard.
I goofed around with Sots Press Pistol Style... I can suddenly do this with a 16kg kettlebell. I discovered this just a couple weeks ago. Joe Pavel and I goofed around with some show-off kettlebells moves at the R-Phase this last weekend. It was a great way to blow off some steam. Joe has really nice form with everything he does.
~Here is something to look at... not the prettiest Sots Press Pistol Style I have done at this weight. It was at the end of my workout after all. It is something to look at until I post something nicer. LOL!
