5 rep PR with 325 lb.. Progress is good.

I don’t find myself getting as mentally bothered by “300 pounds” any more. If anything, it actually excites me. It’s cool to no longer flirt with the 300’s but to be working in the 300’s. And then when I have days like today, 400 doesn’t seem too far away.

Last night before I went to sleep I thought about it. I knew 3 reps would be doable, so 4 was my goal. When I came up after the 4th I was 90% sure I could get a 5th rep so I went for it. There was a bit of grind at the sticking point, but not much. 5 reps at 325 is a nice achievement. I feel like a single @ 365 is workable, and maybe even a little more. But this is not the time for 1RM’s — this is just a time to keep working. Steady progress.

Pause squats. Gee if I don’t find myself liking these. Went for only 3 reps today just to keep a pace.

Upping the volume slightly on lunges and extensions. I’ll continue this. My knees are happy for it. I figure with lunges I’ll work up to like 4 sets of 15 reps each leg, then I’ll start adding weight.

Really happy with today. Great way to start the week.
