Canberra: Power Lifting Competition

Joe "Billy" Giampaolo from Elite Physique in Canberra is running a power lifting competition. It’s on at the gym on 29th September and starts at 1pm. Billy is calling it "the Battle of the Gyms".

Billy is having both male & female divisions. There will be Teen, Juniors, Open and Masters.

Will be a great day. Come along and give it a try. I’m not a power lifter, but I’m going to give it a try. Just to see what personal bests (PBs) I can set. Spectator at very welcome too.

Compression suit: worth it, yes

Two weeks ago I blogged about a new compression suit I brought for squats days.

Use to for the third workout last night. I think it had bean a good buy. It helps with recovery. I've kept it on for 3 hours after I finished training each session.

Think I'll look at upper body suits. I'm thinking for Benching and Deadlifts.

First leg day with a compression suit

Leg day today.

On Monday I brought a BSc Body Science Kompressorz Athletic Longs, aka, a lower body compression suit.

I think they where good value. Joe "Billy" Giampaolo spotted for my three heaviest sets, 1x10@120kg and my work sets (2x8@140kgs). Got the reps for both. Time to up the weights, me thinks.

After the final set, I pulled up the cuff of my trackie dax to show Joe my new purchase. He pulled down his waist band to show me his. One of the reasons for getting a compression suit is recovery. Joe commented that I should keep 'em on for 1 to 2 hours after training finish.

We will see how we feel tomorrow
