March 2016 Musings & Fundraiser Update

I am sorry and sad to say that it is confirmed that no team of Pakistani women will be registered for the 2016 Asian Weightlifting Championships. Thanks to everyone for the support. I have refunded everyone’s donations. I hope to be able to help in some other capacity...

I have not written a #blog post on my website in over 2 years. I thought about this recently, as I occasionally get questions on general strength training, sometimes Olympic Weightlifting, and shrinking individual body parts (this does not exist-sorry).
There is good information out there and people who specialize in these areas, which is why I never write about these topics. As an alternative, I am thinking to write general summaries of how I would go about researching what would be best for you and includes resources that I know of and can vouch for. If there is anything else that would be helpful for me to write about, let me know, and I will do my best.
I personally believe in training for self-care, health, empowerment and dealing with life -- not about how much space I should take or what size I should be or as a punishment.

Here is a video of me lifting in my new Bella hoodie in maroon. The head wrap is gray from Sukoon Active - these were some Eid gifts to myself.
I am getting to doing a few lifts off the ground, since October 2017 (when I fractured my foot). I am still working behind the scenes on using my #core properly, the positions, and keeping #torso more vertical for the #squats. Why? The upright #squat position transfers best to #OlympicWeightlifting movements. This might or might not be important to you, based on your goals. It has taken a lot of patience, and reps at no or light weights to get used to this change I have been making.
I am finally starting to get used to how this is supposed to feel v.s. me thinking so much.
I also got a 10lbs set of wooden technique plates from LYNX Barbell - since I am taking baby jumps, this allows me to do that and be able to have the barbell at lifting starting position off the ground. I also got a thinner band for assistance on doing multiple rep pull-ups as this movement is improving for me. FYI, I like kettle bell swings more than #BURPEES!
