Bev: Train to Perform Log
Hey all, this is going to be my training log on my journey to get stronger (and generally better).
I'm new to the forum (and all forums), but I've been training for the last 5 years or so. I recently got into powerlifting when my husband started doing it and have been training with him since we started dating.
My name's Bev, I'm 5'5" and about 115 pounds.
My current maxes are:
DL: 205 x 4
I've recently been dealing with Hip/Shoulder pain that I've been working out. Hopefully just impingement but possible labrum tears, I've been to the doctor for my shoulder (which is the one I think is torn) and they blew me off (hooray for military healthcare).
So I've just been working around it and doing what I can to strengthen the surrounding muscle
So without further ado, let's get this started!

I don't currently use much as far as supplements go.
What I do use are:
Purus Labs Condense
USP Super Cissus
Gatorade (intra workout)
My husband does our training, we use a modified conjugate program and it's been working well so far. In the past I have done the WS4SB, 5/3/1, and PHAT training templates all to some success.

no doubt itll be stronger, helps keep that weight center lined. i have tight shoulders and pecs and really struggled to low bar for a little while. its still pretty uncomfortable for me but i like it so much better. i just gotta keep working on mobility and everything. @jimbuick do u compete? and will she eventually compete?

no "hopefully", you will take them. train hard and have the mindset of your getting what belongs to you and youll definitely get them.

I'm in this. That's a strong bench you've got there, lady.

It'll come back, just don't rush and be patient with yourself.

Yeah that's what my husband tells me. My bench has gotten a lot better so I'm good with the weight I can do. All in time.
