That was pretty cool.

Great rep PR of 440×7.

What’s great here is that things are going up here across the board, in both reps and weight. Like last cycle’s 5s week topped at 385×9 then this cycle’s 5s week was 395×9. Last cycle’s 3s week was 410×7 and tdhis 420×8. Last cycle’s 1s week 430×6, and then today 440×7.

This is pretty damn cool.

I feel like 500 is completely reachable by the end of the year. In fact, I feel like I could hit 500 deadlift, 300 bench, and 200 press (squat… well, just unfucking that is my goal right now).

One thing I did notice since I’m trying to look for weakness issues, I am feeling slow off the floor. Hrm. Dovetails into my thinking on squats and other stuff. So instead of hip thrusts I opted for RDLs just to see how it would go. I felt it mostly in my lower back, but after 3 sets was like “hrm, is that a bit of glute and hamstring work?” But then the reverse hypers confirmed it… oh man! Driving home was mighty uncomfortable. 🙂 So yeah, I might stick with this for a bit.

Anyways, things are good. Happy day.
