- Squat 3×5x245
- Bench 3×5x185
- Deadlift 1×5x245 (this won’t change until I buy more plates)
- Dips 2×8
This workout went great. I ate some oats earlier, I think that helped a lot. I ate more carbs in general, actually. I also didn’t do as much warming up. I’m pretty happy to be squatting 245lbs at a bodyweight of 142lbs. That’s almost 2xBW and I haven’t even started working on reducing BF% yet.
Don’t get it twisted, though. Squats were pretty damn tough. I widened my stance slightly and turned my feet out so that I could get lower without the deadly buttwink that I noticed in the vids I made.
Bench was slightly more difficult than squats. I will definitely have to start micro-loading, although I’m not sure what the benefit of that is. I may soon just switch to another workout (5×5, anyone?).
Deads were extremely easy today. I’m not sure why. My lower back is usually smashed after squats, so I guess switching my stance there saved it. I’m sure my ass is gonna be pretty sore in a couple days, though (no homo?).
Dips were easy-peasy, as usual. I could probably go knock a few more out, but I don’t feel like taking a nap today…LOL.
