Ment to post this yesterday but I'm a bum.
Never did a deadlift in my life until June. Now they are a part of my weekly routine. 115lbs for now, let's see what I can do!

PR DONUT! AND long winded meet recap: I sent a text to my coach @brodie.blankenship 7 weeks ago and said "hey, this meet just popped up on Dec 15.. is that enough time?" he said "as long as you don't have any expectations" So, I signed up. Prior to that I'd been having a really hard time getting into my lifts since losing my Dad in the summer. Backed out of the @cpfwomensopen in September, eating like shit and training inconsistently for at least 6 months. This meet was just supposed to be about getting my ass back on the platform, but honestly for me it was a turning point. I was either going to feel great and be inspired to keep going or be done with powerlifting. This 6 week training cycle has been a struggle. I tore my MCL at the beginning of it and all of my sessions were hard. Everything hurt, I felt weak. It was my first time training for a meet without an in-person coach! BUT...today it all clicked. Everything felt great. The weights moved well, the people were all fantastic and I remembered all the reasons I LOVE this sport. I ended up with a 30 pound squat PR (303 lbs)!!! an 11 pound bench PR (148 lbs) and a BELTLESS deadlift PR (308 lbs). I went 8/9 (oh wait, there's a PRESS command 😂😂) and none of it was a grind. Needless to say... I am so not done ♡ Thanks to @brodie.blankenship for all your support and wisdom and @ioriojeff for the encouragement and spots in the gym. Super fun day. #powerlifter#powerliftingat40#girlswhopowerlift#powerliftingwomen @the.cpf @quantumcrossfit #squat#bench#deadlift#singletsaturday#donut
Final week of 10’s. This volume block has probably been the hardest I have ever trained before. Squatting and benching 3 times and deadlifting 2 times a week and all reps of 10. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy, not even @chicocloyne OHP 110x3x10 (impressive I know)
High bar squats 364x5x10
4” block pulls 320x3x10 #AIboiz#powerliting#squats#deadlift#snakeoilboiz
The one #deadlift that actually looked and felt ok today.
Today was just not the day, it was cold, like really cold, breathing was an issue, couldnt get a good position, too much walking had made my heal hurt, stupid shoes not supporting my ankles enough just made it even worse, so scrapped the triples that were scheduled and did a bunch of singles instead... it all felt like absolute shit, deadlifts can do one, as can winter.
Bring on Monday when I can #benchpress again, and there will be gas for the heater.

MEET DAY: Today was full of a lot of highs and lows, but ended strong so it’s all good! I know what I need to work on, so I’ll be ready to tackle it (after I recover). Squats:
1st: 97.5kg/214.5lbs ⚪️⚪️⚪️
2nd: 105kg/231lbs ⚪️⚪️⚪️
3rd: 112.5kg/247.5lbs 🔴⚪️🔴 depth.
So I am officially at 105kg for the 3rd meet.
1st: 65kg/143lbs ⚪️⚪️⚪️
2nd: 70kg/154lbs 🔴🔴🔴
3rd: 70kg/154lbs 🔴🔴🔴
By far the most frustrating because the opener flew and I have hit this weight over and over at the gym. Sometimes it’s just not there though.
1st: 115kg/253lbs ⚪️⚪️⚪️
2nd: 125kg/275lbs ⚪️⚪️⚪️
3rd: 135kg/297lbs ⚪️⚪️⚪️ So while I’m still stuck at the same weights for bench and squat, I had a 33lb deadlift meet PR, 12lb deadlift life PR and added 44lbs to my meet total! AND I made weight without having to water cut so that’s also kind of a big deal. And of course I owe a big thank you to @wcsp_labgym for the great coaching and encouragement to help me continue to keep climbing! I definitely wouldn’t be doing this without your help!! #usapl#conventionaldeadlift#girlswithmuscle#squats#sbd#benchpress#deadlift#deadlifts#squat#backsquat#powerlift#powerlifter#powerlifting#meetday#fitness#pr#girlswholift#girlswhopowerlift#gwpl#powerliftingwomen#womenwholift
*CREATINE MONOHYDRATE: SEPARATING THE FACTS FROM MYTH *
Although creatine has recently been accepted as a safe and useful ergogenic aid, several myths have been about creatine supplementation including
causing renal distress,weight gain ,dehydration and altered electrolyte ect
While all this myths have been refuted through scientific investigations, the general public is still primarily exposed to the mass media which may or may not have accurate information.
Anecdotal and media report have often claimed that creatine usage is a dangerous and unnecessary practice; often linking creatine use to anabolic steroid abuse.
As a pharmacist, let me give you my take on this compound based on research and literatures I have read from different authorities.
Creatine is chemically known as a non protein nitrogen; a compound which contains nitrogen but is not a protein per se. It's synthesized in the liver and pancreas from amino acids arginine, glycine and methionine.
Approximately, 95% of the body's creatine is stored in skeletal muscle.
The total creatine pool(Pcr+free creatine) in skeletal muscle averages about 120g for a 70kg individual. The body breaks down about 1-2% of creatine pool per day(about 1-2g/day) into creatinine in the skeletal muscle. The creatinine is then excreted in urine.
At present creatine monohydrate is the most extensively studied and clinically effective form of creatine for use in nutritional supplements in terms of muscle uptake and ability to increase intensity exercise capacity.
The international society of sport and nutrition position stand on creatine supplementation and exercise include:
1. Creatine monohydrate is the most effective ergogenic nutritional supplement currently available to athletes in terms of increasing high intensity exercise capacity and lean body mass during training.
2. Creatine monohydrate supplementation is not only safe but possibly beneficial in regard to preventing injury and or management of select medical conditions when taken within recommended guidelines
