I am not gonna lie. This was hard.December challenge: 30-minute #powerlifting total Not my cleanest lifts, but there's only so much one can do in half an hour 😬 I didn't even match my current #benchpress max (boo), but I hit a 425 #backsquat and 465 #deadlift for PRs (yay)!!! Challenge total: 1,045 All-time total: 1,065 #girlswholift #fitness #fitnamese #everydayislegday #beastmode #anchoredsc @anchoredsc
I'm never worried about big numbers (well, maybe for my bench press), but limiting my time to 30:00 is a whole new ballgame. I am totally the one who takes looooooong rests in between sets. This one meant that I had to go in with a plan, and my plan had to include time constraints and working on much less rest than I am normally used to. (Also, I recently took a few days off from coming in for finals and yada yada, and I'm not sleeping well, and I'm having Lady Issues, so suffice it to say that I was not at 100% peak condition coming into today.)
As I said in my caption, I didn't even match my current bench press max (but I guess I was expecting that - I had such a hard time hitting it the first time!), but I PRed my squat and deadlift. They were not totally clean lifts, but I'm fairly confident that if I had attempted them under normal circumstances, they would've gone better.
That said, I still did them, and they still count, and I'm still pleased about it :)
Happy holidays, errbody!
