    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:

    Bench: 135
    Squat: 185
    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!

    Supplementation:

    I don't currently use much as far as supplements go.

    What I do use are:

    OE Protein
    Purus Labs Condense
    USP Super Cissus
    Gatorade (intra workout)

    Training:

    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.

    She can't because of the shoulder injury, too much external rotation is painful for her.

    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?

    We're both planning on the APF SE TX meet in December for my second and her first.


    Planning to take the state records in our respective weight classes/age group.

    My gawd. It's unreal. Everybody who's tried it loves it. It's a tiny squirt to wherever you need it and you feel relief in five minutes.
