Fun New Stuff!

Finally - I got my new weightlifting shoes yesterday. And, *bonus* they came in the most awesome pink bag, perfect for carrying to the gym! And as luck would have it, my latest CF tank top arrived yesterday too! There are so many shirts that say "Fran is my homegirl", but honestly, Fran and I aren't that tight. Grace, she's my fave! So, I had to have this shirt. Yes, I know, I am a total geek. ;)



5 Rounds for time of:
15 Sumo Deadlift High Pull (Men 95 lbs, Women 65 lbs)
15 Ring dips

My time: 15:51 - band assisted ring dips

Strength today was shoulder press, push press and push jerk, 3-3-3 of each.

My loads:
shoulder press: 55, 65, 75
push press: 85, 95, 105
push jerk: 110, 110, 110

That 110 got heavy really fast with 3 reps. Whew! There is a world of difference between a 1 rep max and a 3 rep max. Though my form needs improvement, the jerk is still one of my favorites!


  1. Sooooo- love the shoes, obvs. But did you try them yet??? I'm dying to know what you think!

  2. Yes, I've worn them twice now. The first day was with the presses and push jerks, and I didn't really get much of a feel for them...just really didn't seem to be a big deal.

    But, yesterday when we did squat cleans - I totally felt a difference in my stability with them on. A major difference from running shoes. I love them!

  3. Hi Angie,

    Do you still use your Risto weightlifting shoes now? Have they held up?


    1. Hi Michelle. Yes, I do still wear them. I love them! They are in great condition. I know a lot of the girls have gone to the Reebok lifting shoes, but the Risto are good quality traditional lifting shoes. I would buy them again. Totally worth it.
