Wednesday 1RM check (conventional deadlift)

So typically I do bench press on Wednesday’s but because I missed Tuesday (which was conventional deadlifts) I decided to do deadlifts today and wait to do bench press another day. Again, I tested my 1RM max with the conventional deadlift and excelled. My form could use some sprucing up and I will continue to work on it as I progress as a lifter, because I know how important it is to have good form and technique (especially with these lifts), so that is something I will definitely work on and hopefully get better at. The one best thing that came from hitting this PR was the fact that so many well known powerlifters — majority of them women, left comments of encouragement ❤ that really added some motivation to my life and meaning. These were women who are ELITE athletes in the sport of weightlifting and powerlifting and have won many titles, who have taken the time to comment on my video, which I will share with all of you —- Deadlift video (ALSO, be sure to follow me!)

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 7+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
