It has been a while since I last posted on the forum, motivation to post was sort of lacking while I was recovering from a Shoulder Injury. I have been back lifting for 2 weeks after finally getting clearance from my Physiotherapist.

 

Ultimately my goal is to get back to the point where I can Break the Australian Master Record in Ladies Bench Press but in the short term my goals are 

 

1. Get back to competition bodyweight

2. Rebuild muscle endurance

3. Return to Heavy lifting

 

Problems that need to be overcome or Endured

 

1. Calcified Rotator Cuff (Not the same injury that I have just recovered from)

2. Bad Knee (Have had Surgery in the Past)

3. Arthritis (Neck)

4. 3 Autistic kids which can play havoc with training schedule

 

Current Plan of Attack

 

I am eating a full keto diet and training using GVT before returning to heavy lifting

 

All Weights are in Kg

Today was Cardio/Recovery day including rower,treadmill (incline 10), Climber and stationary bike.

 

Diet is still cheat free with only 7 grams of carbs consumed (Vegetables)

 

Weight is down again

 

I have DOMS from yesterday in hamstrings and glutes but expected due to bringing Squats back into my training.

 

A new centre has just opened down the coast from where I live which has hydrostatic weighing and DEXA they have opening specials on for groups of 5 so my gym is organising members into groups of 5 to take advantage of the good prices next month, it will be interesting to compare callipers (my normal method of measurement) to  DEXA.

Wednesday is Cardio Day/Rest Day

 

Morning - Rower 30 minutes, 5604 metres

After Lunch at home - Stationary Bike 1 hour, 22.7 Km

 

Diet - On track

Weight - down 700 gram, nice to see after a slight stall

 

 

Back to the gym this afternoon to coach youngest son, he has decided to compete this year as a Sub-Junior Powerlifter in the Under 53 kg class, Yay. Also I will be re registering to compete tomorrow (Pay Day lol) I need to be back on the random drug testing list for 3 months before I can break any records so back to being ultra careful with any non natural stuff I put in my mouth. I have been to enough meets where lifters have tested positive for substances in over the counter products.

 

Really felt like lifting today, I have to keep telling myself that over training will kill my hopes of a record, also beginning to seriously hate High reps, I know my muscles need a bit more conditioning post injury before I return to a powerlifting training routine but DAMMIT I want to lift heavy again NOW !!!!
