A young girl lost her life this week as she ran dangerously across a road while late to work. She tripped over and was collected by a garbage truck in a freak accident. She could have been someone you knew? She could have been yours? She could have been you?
Having given up on the pursuit of 100 kg bench press by the time of arrival I decided to set a different goal. The reason being that after 5-6 weeks of training my left shoulder started to get painful which alerted me to the fact that I am not the lifter I once was (assuming I was one!). So the challenge of squeezing out the 100s took a different tone:
On Tuesday 17th of February I did squats at 50 kg for 50/35/15.
On Monday 23rd of February I did benchpress at 50 kg for 16/16/16/16/16/16/4.
On Tuesday 24th of February I did deadlifts at 50 kg for 34/33/25/8.
Thanks to Snap Fitness Southbank for helping me achieve this and my supporting brother for following my journey.
