Well, my training schedule is all goofed up because of the holidays and fun time. Wednesday night I did some work on the bench press, which I didn't bother to record, mainly because I am sick of typing the same tiny little numbers over and over again. I went out with a couple girls I went to high school with last night which caused me to miss deadlift night. Maura and I met up after my two Saturday kettlebell classes to train at 12 noon today. Maura was on deadlifts, I decided to squat today and save deadlifting for Monday... complicated, I know. Any whooo... here is how it went down for me.
245X1 - pr by 5lbs.
~This is another squat pr for me, only 5lbs. I can't believe how easy it felt, especially after all the greasy crap I ate last night (which left me with a stomach ache) and teaching two kettlebell classes. Mitch Edlestein gave me a spot, Cheryl Anderson and Maura Shuttleworth were there to cheer me on. It must be a combination of the creatine and being surrounded by strong people. Thanks guys! Here is something to look at, I am wearing my lucky red velour plants...
Box Squats w/Bands
monster mini bands - 70lbs each
55lb+bands - 5
105+bands - 3X8
~I really like box squats with bands. Really had to drive through a spot about 3/4 to lock out. Felt great, really like this lift. I think this might be my new favorite assistance lift...
James Neilinger stopped by to chit chat today, which was very nice. James is a great guy and I feel lucky to have him in the same town.
