Ah, trust conditioning class to bring me back down to earth! I ought to stop saying I’m a powerlifter at my secondary gym, because then I go into classes like that and look like an utter wimp. Remember, self: being good at deadlifting makes you good at deadlifting, not anything else. 

Still, at least I’m getting faster on the sprints – even if I still always come last!

I did some new things today, too – woodchoppers with a 14lb hammer (I was rubbish at these, need to learn the technique) and flipping a weighted, jointed “body bag” up & down the dojo – plus the usual subjects of kroc rows, kicks, kettlebell jerks etc etc.

My back is quite cross at me now.
