So yeah yeah yeah, I know, I have been M.I.A here on my website blog posts for almost 3 months now!
I certainly do have excuses but I ain’t gonna try and suck up to you guys & give you any of those damn excuses! So deal with it!
Only joking. I’m not one for excuses, or am I?
The only words you will get from me, Like One Republic once sang, are;

“I apologise.” Hehe!

Anyway, quick update with my journey.

Apart from my daily training sessions at my local Puregym’s in Holloway & Finsbury Park, I am now also training once a week on Sunday’s at The British Barbell Powerlifting  Club in Peckham.
Yay me!

During my club sessions I work along side other club members and receive benificial lifting advice from the very experienced coaches there.
I hope to enter my first powerlifting meet in November depending on how much progression I make with perfecting my lifting form. At the moment im not worrying too much on the weight numbers. That goes hand in hand with good lifting form. The better my form, the better my numbers will be.
So far, So Good. Everything is going really well. I’ve never felt so confident with the new techniques I have been told to execute in order to improve the way I lift. Everytime I get into the gym I am always learning something new about my own motor patterns and how I can switch & tweak various body movements (no matter how small they maybe) to better my technique in the 3 main lifts that I do.
At first everything felt so foreign to me. The new style was not pleasant on my elbows. Causing alot of pain and aches in the beginning. No way did I feel comfortable.
In my mind I thought;

Why would I have to change my style that has taken me nearly a year to get flawlessly imaculate? and then basically I would have to spend more time learning new techniques that will clearly have me starting at lower weights and reduce my training maxes?!?!

No lie, I was not pleased. It did bring down my motivation slightly but who am I to say this style does not suit me in relation to these experienced lifting coaches advising me who have been in this game for years?
Obviously, deep down inside, I knew it was for the better.
As with all things beneficially new to you that you may not be comfortable with, you just have to perceiver and adapt to it. And boy, I can tell you now, this new way is a far more superior method then the way I used to lift!
I even managed a tasty 190kg / 418lbs Personal Record Sumo Deadlift the other week!

Taking this step back has just moved me 10 steps forward.
Well Ok, maybe 5 steps forward! Lol!
