My Crazy Strong Woman Workouts

I wish! I hardly ever get to raise bars anymore. But the ‘awkward’ objects I’m using are f**ing heavy.

Just in case anyone is curious, I’m going to share what I did last week. The little notes are for my coach. Sorry for the profanity, but that’s what I wanted to say to him at the time. I email him the workouts each day. I did 45 sets total last week. I’m bruised, scraped, and sore. When did bodybuilding workouts, I would do 20-30 sets a day and I didn’t really beat the crap out of myself like I am doing now.

And this is freakin’ awesome. Seriously. During my massage this week, Diana (who has been working out the knots for about two years now and knows my muscles intimately) said “it’s like you’re on steroids or something.” I started this training mid July and the gains have been – dramatic.

My aggression level is up. I use the f-bomb in almost every effin sentence.

Yeah, this is awesome!!!

I’m still not sure what will happen on Sept 21. I hate this training. But I can’t imagine stopping. I also know I can’t keep it up indefinitely. It’s just too hard on the body and the CNS. But this has certainly shifted my paradigm.
