Met my niece for the first time this weekend. 4 days of straight snuggles :)
I’m testing my “end of summer” maxes next weekend. (6th-7th)
I’m hoping for/estimating:
260-265 squat (15 lb all time PR)
130-135 bench (5 lb all time pr)
265 Deadlift. (5 lb all time PR)
300kg total, are you in my near future?! 💪🙏
So I’m dog sitting and this is the soap in the bathroom
In case anyone is curious, I have just begun my last Monday as a labourer ever.
Heading out for dinner, feeling pretty fly 😎
So on Tuesday, I went for 225x5x3.
I got 225x3 and 225x2 and then failed.
Yesterday, though, I hit 225 x 5 x 3 (mostly). I bumped into the rack on my last rep of my last set and that fucked It up.
But anyway. Progress.
Aiming to squat 225x 5x 3 today. Oh boy.
ughughughguhgughugh people at the gym
some guys were lifting in the rack next to me and talking about a big upcoming powerlifting meet that i’ll be volunteering at. i politely make conversation, asking them about the meet, whatever. he goes on to say he is going there to “break all of the records” with this really cocky demeanour.
I then find out he hasn’t even signed up (or even been to one before) for the meet, and i tell him the meet has been full and closed for sign ups for a while. He then says “oh, well, whatever. i was just going so that i could test my limits for cross fit anyway”
i literally grunted an “oh” and promptly turned around and lifted away in silence. some. peoples. children.
The 10k charity run training commences… This was after squatting 3 sets of 5@220 😓
Today’s sets of five:
Deadlift single: 245
