I think I’ll give it another week of not training this left quad muscle… it’s feeling a lot better this week. I still feel a little tiny pain when standing for a long time but not too bad… it’s just about gone away. Yep… I’ll definitely take it easy on the lifting again this week so I can let it heal all the way. I want it healed all the way 100% so I can get back to some serious lifting on the lower body and I can get back to working real hard on the deadlifting.
Gonna have to take it easy on the left shoulder for another week too ’cause that’s getting better too. I didn’t train the left shoulder at all this week and will probably do the same for next week.
Next week, my minor injuries on the left leg and left shoulder should be gone completely and I should be 100% very soon hopefully. Once I am 100%, I’m gonna get back to some serious lifting and I will be more careful next time.
I might have another powerlifting meet coming in Nov. and I want to be completely injury free for this one. That way I can smash my best lifts. I’m hoping to make it to 200 lb. bench for this upcoming meet and hoping to make it to 300 lb. deadlift or more. Not sure if I lost a little bit of strength by taking it easy for a few weeks but who cares if I did or not. Even if I did lose a little strength, I’ll get it back quickly.
For the next powerlifting meet, I really want to bring my numbers up big ’cause that’s how you want to do powerlifting. You always want to bring your numbers up ’cause it isn’t good at all when your numbers on the big three lifts stays the same or goes down.
I want to be fully healed and injury free so I can get back into serious deadlifting again and kick some ass. I love deadlifting. It’s my favorite workout and favorite lift of them all and I want to be the best at it someday. I don’t want to mess up and don’t want to be too injury prone.
I used to never enjoy bench pressing but it’s growing on me and I’m loving it more and more.
Still not enjoying squats so much but I continue to do that lift anyways ’cause of powerlifting. I feel more comfortable deadlifting and have a blast doing that. I’ll be back into doing heavy deadlifting again soon… hopefully next week. No deadlifting again this week ’cause if I do, the injury on my left quad will come back big and I don’t want that. I’m going to wait until it heals all the way and then I’ll get back to working hard.
I’m feeling really good, though. I love powerlifting. It’s an awesome sport and happy that I finally found a sport that I can do.
