Deadlift, 100 lbs at a deficit. First half look good, second half I had trouble with my form. Second set went a lot better.
The guy in the background was deadlifting 135, but not setting it on the ground between reps. I don't know which is worse - not setting it down, or working at a deficit. In any case, I should be at 135 in a month or two.
Yesterday I went to Lowe's to look for seat cushions for our glider (really expensive - we should just make do for one more year and buy a new glider when they go on sale at the end of the season). While I was there, a guy who worked there said, "You work out at the Y with me, don't you?" and I said, "Yea, I do!" and he FIST BUMPED ME. He is no longer training there because his free membership ran out. Anyway - he completely validated me, for some reason... like - I WORK OUT WITH HIM. And I got a fist bump! I'm not some freak woman in the weight room. I've been there for ... two months now. And I'm doing all right.
GETTINGSTRONGRR - any critique on my form would be awesome. I can see a few things, like my last 5 were kind of iffy. I should have taped the second set, after I had some done.
