Welcome to week 2 of Operation Get Strong & Sexy. In case you missed it last week, click HERE to see what this is all about. Basically, my clients Erin & Sammie decided to set a date for a powerlifting competition (now 5 weeks out). Though they’ve done bodybuilding training and competed in bikini competitions, they’ve never competed or trained for a powerlifting competition. We’ve decided to film and broadcast our journey. We are training at Revolution Training System in Tempe, Arizona – a badass gym as you can see.
Sammie and Erin had another excellent week of training! Their form is improving and their strength is increasing. What more could anyone ask for?
I taught them some new lifts this week, which always feels a bit awkward, but they did very well. We established baselines for various lifts, tinkered with form, and set new PR’s in the squat, bench, and deadlift. I told the girls to enjoy these times, as after a couple of decades of lifting, PR’s are fewer and farther between!
Below is the video footage for our two training sessions.
