mbibbs163- “She’s in between worlds right now. And a part of her is leaving. But it’s not like before. She’s taking up space this time...” From 52lbs to 52k. Today’s top singles were all about 90% for me at Squat: 193lb Deadlift: 258.5lbs Bench: 104.5lbs (went for 121 on third attempt which would have been a 5lb PR and my left elbow flared/failed it) At the risk of sounding somewhat cliche (not to mention way to early for transformation Tuesday), I sometimes can’t believe that I somehow went from getting winded holding my hair dryer too long, to having any sort of strength related goals. And it has nothing to do with the number on the bar...and everything to do with empowering women (and men) who completely eschew social norms, to take up space, to be powerful in her/his own way. I had an amazing time at my first ever powerlifting meet and I may post a full recap. I loved meeting all the amazing men and women at today’s event, the support all around was inspiring!
