Okay girls, after constant urging by my training partner/boyfriend, Crow, I'm finally starting a training/progress log. My name is Cori, I'm a full-time nursing student and mother of three wonderful children. I'm also 100% bitten by the iron bug. I love lifting heavy weights and feeling myself get stronger each workout. 3 years ago I weighed 270lbs, this morning the scale read 159.
I'm getting a BODPOD measurement this morning, so I'll post the results later. I'm using the 5/3/1 program to improve my raw strength with the bench, squat, dead, and military. I've competed in one powerlifting meet and plan to continue competing because it totally rocks!
We also train the olympic lifts occasionally, along with strongman events. Yet I also love aerobic conditioning which I have to do alone (Crow hates all forms of cardio).
My next meet is in November here are my goals:
Here is a video of my first full cycle of 5/3/1 since my last meet.
