I haven't had a heavy squat day for almost a month! Some back off time, bad weather, R-Phase classes for Z Health and the TSC worked against me and my squat day. I was actually planning on taking off this whole week before training for Raw Nationals in July. The weather was awful, I wasn't feeling totally healthy, plus I had a long day... but, I just could not let one more week pass before I tested my one rep max.
I also picked up some 35lbs. plates for our new DL program. Maura and I were anxious to test our 1 RM off the little plates. So, we pulled after we did our squats.
There was yet more bad weather to deal with this Friday night... Maura braved the sleet and snow to meet up with me at The Press for a Friday night workout. Here is how it all went down...
135 X 5
185 X 1
210 X 1
225 X 1
235 X 1
185 X 3
~There was a little sticky spot on the 235lbs, I managed to drive through it. This is also a little high for me... I was nervous.
Here is a shot of my new PR 235lbs.
Next, Maura and I tested our 1RM pulling off little plates. Nothing too exciting... I wound up pulling 245... but I feel like I am good for 255lbs. Rif, I know you hate guessing a 1RM, but I am going to call it 255. I was out of gas, and it was late. I just couldn't do one more lift after the 245lbs. Here is a video for your viewing pleasure. Maura thought all the little plates were pretty funny so, she got a shot of the stack. LOL!
What a long way up....
