I will be posting last night’s training log and videos later tonight, but I thought I would share this quick story.
Last night was my last heavy squat day before my up-coming meet. As I was getting ready for my second to last heavy set, one of my lifting partner’s children came out to the gym.
Looking at the bar, she said “Why’s the bar bending so much?”
My partner turned to her and said, “Honey, there’s a lot of weight on there.”
I didn’t think much of this until I was driving to work this morning. It’s a funny thing being a competitive powerlifter. We sometime forget that our perspective or what may seem perfectly normal to us, like a bar bending under a half ton of weight, is in fact not normal at all. And even beyond that, we get under the bar to squat it.
Comments and questions are always welcome.
