Re-tested my backsquat today. I knew it was either going to be a shit show or I’d PR. And, as you can tell from the subject of this blog post, I PR’d today. I really just wanted to get over the 200# mark, so I’m happy that I got 205#. Now, I’m not over the moon happy. I would have loved to get at least 215# – but it just wasn’t in the cards today. Leila managed to get it on video. Jarrod is spotting me.
It felt fairly easy to do, so after talking to Jarrod, I went for 215#. This was a matter of me getting in my own way and failed twice. Dropped to 210# and failed twice there too. I felt like I almost had the second attempt at 210#, but my legs were gassed. Considering I haven’t really worked out in over a week and am still a wee sick – I did make my goal of breaking the 200# mark and got a 10# PR, so I’ll take it 🙂 I might try in open gym on Sunday to attempt again. I tried to lay out my rep scheme and ran in past Jarrod. Perhaps this is why I will never ever program my own workouts. You can see my proposal on the left and Jarrod’s suggestion on the right. HA. Perhaps I proposed in a little more reps that I should have.
