Right folks, I'll be the first to put my hands up & say this is far from a perfect lift. It's a flawed lift, muscled up a bit around the knees & wouldn't have stood in a powerlifting meet...
However, this isn't a powerlifting meet. This was my first ever attempt at 200kg at under 70kg bodyweight. It's a dirty lockout out but a lockout none the less. It definitely needs work & we'll get it cleaner in the new year but for now, god damn it, I'm taking it! 💪🏻
I'm hearing a lot of people talk on Instagram about how difficult it is hitting and setting goals at this time of the year. Now I completely agree that due to what feels like almost constant darkness, people thinking ahead to Christmas and just an all round general 'fuck it' attitude this time of the year can be difficult!
I thought it have been a major come down after this lift but that's not quite the case. Now don't get me wrong, it's going to be some time before I hit another 'massive' deadlift but that's not the only way you can progress! .
In the words of the great one @therock 'It's you versus you'. When you achieve something, strive to beat yourself. For me that means a clean 200, 180 x 5, 190 x 3 & a massive triple my bodyweight deadlift of 210 x 1! Onwards & upwards! Watch this space! 💪🏻
