Squats and New Shoes!!

4 Apr


So I have a new pair of Olympic lifting shoes that I tried out for the first time today. They are the Pendlay DoWin’s, women’s version.

They felt good, but strange. I have been lifting in Chucks ever since I start training (3.5 years), so it was definitely interesting. Form was a bit shaky. I think it will take me a few sessions to get used to them but they definitely help with keeping me on my heels which is a plus.

Still feel like I need to eat a bit more, but don’t want to move past my weight class. Gotta experiment a little I suppose. Can never tell if my scale is the right reading or not. :/

Random progress pics:



Workout left me dead today. This is Week 6, day #3 of The Cube.


bar x bunch






210×6 (see notes)

Pause Squats: (3 second pause in the hole)


More Squat Craziness:

130×25 (5 rep PR)

Step-Ups: (2.5ish foot box)



2 x 1 minute


Like I said, squats felt a bit weird. I got stuck a bit at the bottom of the last rep which was weird. Form was probably just a bit off.

Here’s the pause squats. Felt like I was going to puke. So brutal.

A few reps were cut short on this set. Was supposed to be a full 3-count but some of them were 2. Oh well.
