It was squat day at The Press Gym. I did some swings with my KB class tonight before my workout. Maura and I had the good platform, which was very nice. I left my note book at home, so I had to go by memory on what was next on my workout plan. Now that I am home looking at my book I realize I was supposed to do only 2 sets of 2, instead I did four sets. Here is how it all went down...
~I had the right shoes and my TRif belt, which was much better than last week. Every set felt easy, every set felt great! I felt like I could have gone for 4 reps at 190.
Set two of four, with Ryan Coffey spotting
Set three of four, with Chris spotting - yet another state record holder - squatting 465 at 148
~I think I am going to have to get wrist wraps... set 2 really bugged my wrists. Somehow I figured it out on set 3, but I pinched my hand skin.
Bulgarian Split Squats
12/12kg- 5 reps, 4 sets
It is so nice to have a training partner like Maura! She knows the ropes and she is fun to train with. I am bigger than she is and she is more experienced and stronger than I am... so that puts us at about the same weight range, which works out great! I have to say I am absolutely pleased with my training tonight.
