A feisty vegan powerlifter with a zeal for training and a love for good food. I am prepping for my next meet in October following the Minimalist/M2 Method by Brian Schwab. Brian has been my coach for  over a year now, and the following logs are documenting my progress utilizing his training methods. 

Thank you for being a part of my journey!

It seems to me like sumo deadlifts are just  a pipe dream for me at this point.

I have to choose one or the other - squats or sumo pulls. I can't do both, and I really just need to stop trying since nothing has worked at all.

I felt really good last week for my deadlift session, but it appears the after affects carried over all the way into my squat workout almost a week AFTER pulling. My hips gave out at the bottom of my squats yesterday, which caused my quads and adductors to stop firing. I was pitching forward and overcompensating with my back and hamstrings. My squats have not looked or felt so bad in a long time.

So it's back to the drawing board. The squat is my strongest movement anyway, and it simply isn't worth losing strength on to make way for sumo pulling.
