Hello all. A little about me. I am getting back into working out after an extensive time off. I was preparing for my first powerlifting meet, when I decided to go back to school, and developed some injuries which encouraged me to take some off.
Then I got lazy!
I am currently 5’0, 120 lbs, and female. I am not 100% sure if my goal is to compete, but I am lifting primarily for the big three. Any advice is welcome.
My personal bests are:(at 115 lbs)
Bench: 120 lbs
Squat : 225 lbs
Deadlift: 265 lbs
I have been doing some research about programs. I have been lifting for 10 years, and feel I need something more intermediate.
I like keeping a journal to keep myself accountable, and I always feel like I learn a lot from others experience. Please feel free to share advice/opinions.
My first workout back in a LONG time:
Squats (warmup only)
3x10- 95 lbs
My squats have suffered due to lots of hip tightness/pain.
1x5 ( 135 lbs)
1x5 ( 155 lbs)
1x3 ( 185 lbs)
2x1 (205 lbs)
3x10 (135 lbs)
** you would think being short would make these easy, but I struggle with them as I am a back lifter**
1x10 (45 lbs)
1x10 (65 lbs)
5x5 (90 lbs) supersetted with:
3x 1 minute planks
More to follow! Thanks for reading
