Yes, more shoes, ok? I have found that I’m a little obsessed with customizing shoes. So, I made a couple that I’m undecided on. I want to use them for powerlifting and love them because they aren’t a style everyone has.
But, I need your help!! I’m going out on a limb and posting apicture of the suit I have to wear for powerlifting. I made the first shoe to match but now I’m not sure if I should go with something more generic and everyday like the second one or none of the above. Help!

Here is my suit…don’t laugh too hard.
And, here are the two shoe options.
Also, my training for last week. As per usual, I have not logged my food. I give up.
Monday, April 22nd
A. Back Squat @ 80%; 8 reps x 5 sets; rest 4 min Warm up 45/65/95/115. All sets @ 145 and 6-8-8-8-8. This was TOUGH. My hips felt weak. The first set I wasn’t really prepared for how hard it would be so that’s why only 6 reps.
B1. RDL @ 4020; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec I haven’t done these much so I wasn’t really sure on weight. 85-95-115 all X 10
B2. GHD Sit-ups @ 2020; 10-12 reps x 3 sets; rest 2 min Slow GHD’s are no joke, plus I had eaten a little too close to my workout and felt like throwing up hence 10 reps per set. Still felt nauseated for about an hour after. Note to self: eat earlier.
C. Wtd Hip Extensions @ 2121; 6-9 reps x 4 sets; rest 1 min 5#, 7.5#, 10#X2 all 9 reps
Tuesday, April 23rd
A. DB Bench Press @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 4 sets; rest 3 min 25# X 2, 30# x 2 – all 10 reps. I like these better than BB BP for some reason.
B1. BB Shoulder Press @ 21X1; 6, 6, 6; rest 90 sec 53 x 2, 58
B2. BW Pull-ups; 5 reps x 3 sets; rest 90 sec all complete (probably a bit of a kip nearing the end reps)
C1. Standing DB Tricep Ext @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec – felt very awkward so I did single arm on the bench @ 10# all sets 10 reps
C2. Powell Raise @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec 5#, all sets 10 reps
Wednesday, April 24th
AMRAP in 20 minutes @ 80%:
80ft Farmers Walk @ 44#
10 Push Press @ 53#
30 Double Unders
Did 3 rounds plus 400m row and farmer walk. Last row pace dropped a bunch due to my dumb back tightening. I REALLY try to warm up and prepare so this won’t happen. I try to sit correctly on the rower and I feel like I’m getting better but I can’t seem to sit right and pull a good pace. BLah.
Thursday, April 25th
A. Back Squat @ 80%; 6 reps x 3 sets; rest 3 min 147 alll sets – felt heavy but I started my period and think that may have been affecting me all week READ : NO ENERGY!
B. Good Morning @ 4020; 8-10 reps x 4 sets; rest 2 min 45-55-55-60 X 10 reps
C1. Strict K2E @ 2010; 5-7 reps x 4 sets; rest 1 min all sets 7 reps
C2. Hip Extensions @ 1010; 12-15 reps x 4 sets; rest 1 min all sets 15 reps and a severely burning butt at the end.
Friday, April 26th
A. Bench Press @ 3010; 4.4 reps x 4 sets; rest 3 min (rest 15 sec on cluster)
75-80-85-95 last one felt hard but didn’t feel I maxed…maybe could have finished at 100
B1. EROM HSPU Neg @ 51A0; 4, 4, 4, 4 rest 90 sec
45# plates – probably closer to 4 seconds at the end
B2. BW Pull-ups; 5 x 4 sets; rest 90 sec
all complete, used supinated grip for all reps since this usually harder for me
C1. DB Skull Crusher @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec
20# all sets
C2. DB External Rot @ 3010; 8-10 reps x 3 sets; rest 30 sec
10# all sets
