Backsquat PR!

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.
