Today was a benchmark workout. We did 5×5 back squats. I looked up when I this benchmark this last (it was mid-June) and I did 95#.
I looked up what weight I did with Morgan awhile back. We did 5×3 at 145#. Previous to that, I did 7×2 at 125#. I decided that I was going to go with 125# for this set and see what happened. My legs are pretty zonked from the running yesterday, but I wanted to give it a shot.
I really need to work on pushing out my knees as I’m coming up from the squat position, but other than that – I got through the workout fine. I think it was just the right amount of weight for this workout. In aggregate, I lifted over 3125# today (it doesn’t include the build up to the final WoD weight)! The last two sets were tough, especially at the 4th and 5th reps – but I finished at 125#.
Some day I’ll be like my girl Susie Diesel.
