If she can do it, I can!

Sunday, April 27, 2014

In the gym at work this week as I was doing my insane sideways treadmill there was a woman doing heavy deadlifting. Now I mean as in 35lbs on each end of the bar. It was so inspiring! But I pouted as I finished my workout-- because of my wrists being weak because of the carpal tunnel I couldn't do those deadlfts and I was irritated at my weakness.


I told her that it was incredible what she did and how I wanted to do that but my wrists were too weak. She told me she had tendonitis in both arms and it took her a long time to build up to it but she could do it-and showed me her gloves that helped her. We talked about our buddy ibuprofen helping us along -but what's more--I am going to build up to it! If she can do it I can!!!!!

    I have hook grips that really help to perform a heavy deadlift without much wrist strength required at all!!! Worth the investment and I bet you'll be deadlifting heavy in NO TIME!!!

    As inspirational as you are, it's good to read that you continue to be inspired by others. Make that deadlift happen!

    You can do it. That is what you need to tell yourself all the time.
