Getting to enjoy this lifting nonsense



Recommended Posts

Joined a gym a couple of months ago and started on StrongLifts 5x5 to give me some structure.

Just in the last week or so have had a couple of PT sessions too which have been great 👍🏻

Got 100kg squat for the first time and managed a 140kg deadlift tonight - what a buzz! Not bad for a one legged fella 😂

Wonderful! Way to go! I'll eventually get into the lifting but right now am mostly doing cardio, a little resistance training, and some swimming.

I love lifting but cannot get to a gym right now. in my 20's I was an amateur bodybuilder. many moons ago. I hope to get into a seniors weight class!

Updated my PBs tonight

Squat = 140kg

Current PBs are:

Bench 115kg

Squat 140kg

DL 170kg

Not squatted for a while but will get back to it - maybe! Currently doing an intensity block and will retest Bench and DL PBs in a few weeks :)

Hoping to do some more strongman comps next year but really need a new prosthetic foot before then...

Had a training afternoon with Tom Stoltman today - Scotland’s strongest (and worlds 5th strongest) man 2019.

Managed to finally get my 180kg deadlift, increased my axle overhead PB to 60kg and had a play with some atlas stones, great fun!
