Step one in becoming a superhero…

Super Strength

After reviewing my options for gaining super strength, I cam up with the following options:

1) Radioactive spill

2) Radioactive spider bite

3) Unfortunate lab accident

4) Be born into the slayer line

5) lift up heavy things and put them down again…repeat

I discounted 1-3 as I don’t want to be radioactive an I don’t work in a lab.

Goddess Willow…Nifty!

as for number 4, if I was born into the slayer line, after Willow’s nifty bit of magic in the last episode, I would know by now

So that just left me with number 5.

Lift heavy things up and put them down again in multiple different way until super strength is achieved!

That works right?

So in a round about sort of way…what I am leading up to is, I have been practicing my 80kg deadlifts again…and I was actually brave enough to let Matt take my photo while doing it!!

60kg warm up lift 😀
Pre lift :-)
Pre lift 🙂
80kg :-D yeay!!
80kg 😀 yeay!!

look how awesome that is!!

Yes…this post was totally just an excuse to say look at me and my 80kg (176 lb) deadlift!!

It was also in a slightly more subtle way, it was a way to say, look how much I have progressed, that I can look at photos of myself and see the good 🙂

I know I have still a way to go, but I can see that in that picture I look strong 😀

The only comments I had were…aren’t my hands tiny and look how good my form is 😀



  1. You look FANTASTIC! Perfect form and gorgeous while you’re doing it!
    p.s. is the overhand/underhand combo grip the one that is most recommended for dead lifts? Today is my Squat/OH Press/Deadlift day of 5×5. Heading to the gym at lunch time.


    1. Thank you 😀
      yes, the alternate grip is good for deadlifts as the bar can’t roll out of your hands in either direction 🙂

      we were taught it on my course and Matt reminds me every week when I forget! It is not essential, but I find it does help 🙂


  2. You look strong and amazing! I was going to ask about the grip, but Nancy beat me to it… I know nothing about deadlifts, but I will hopefully be trying this kind of thing very soon 🙂
    Incidentally, I found it very disappointing when Willow didn’t activate my latent slayer powers too!


    1. Thank you 🙂
      Deadlifts are really awesome! they are hard and pretty much work everything all at once! I love them!
      you should get your trainer to check your form first though because, although they are awesome and you should do them…they are easy to get wrong and you can hurt your back!

      I think the spell is just working its way round…although 12 years is a long time to wait… 😉


  3. 80kg – you’re my hero even if you haven’t reached your own superhero goal yet! Amazing! I’m thinking of trying to carry 4 of my suitcase at its overloaded best – no way in hell! You’re my idol too 😉
