Long story short, I am participating in my first powerlifting meet on August 20. Hank decided to do the same, and I consider myself a fortunate mom that he doesn't blink at the idea of a mother-son powerlifting event. He doesn't seem to think it's weird. There will not be matching singlets, obviously.
I'm in the third week of my 8-week program and yesterday I mis-read my plan and did 5 sets of 6 reps (instead of 4 reps) of deadlifts at 165.
Weightlifting and running have a negative impact on the part of my brain that needs to do math. It seems to be only temporary, but I cannot keep mileage or sets and reps straight when I am in the middle of it.
Current 1rms: Squat 150; Bench 95; DL 200.
