Shoes

My Adidas Powerlift 2.0s showed up over the weekend and I got a chance to workout with them for the first time yesterday. I immediately felt a difference in my lifts. It was easily the most physically stable I’d ever felt.

I think this is the first pair of blue and white shoes that I've bought in a long time.

I noticed that in my running shoes I had the problem that I used to tilt forward/backward at times, especially for the heavier weights. This problem was completely eliminated while wearing these shoes. The stability and support offered by these shoes helped me squat 260 lb, a personal best.

After lifting in these I can’t imagine wearing anything else.

Oh, I’ve also started reading while resting between sets at the gym. I think it’s a great use of time where I was essentially doing nothing. Well, nothing mentally engaging (most of the time, unless I’m talking to/texting someone) anyways.
