Records are not always Vinyl!

8 Jun

Mondays and Tuesdays are my heavy days. It’s the days I move up in weight (hopefully). The other 2 days of the week we do some tempo work and dragging the sled around which most of you know if you have been following along.

So today I am going to go over my records this week.

Back Squat – 3 sets of 3 at 231lbs. Looking back into the history books the last recorded one rep max I did was 235lbs and before I did that I completed a work set at 210lbs. So in 18 weeks I have put over 20lbs on my work sets. Im hoping I am close to 250lbs on a 1 rep max.

Deadlift – set of 3 at 277lbs. Last week I lifted 297lbs on a 1 rep max after doing a ton of work sets so I am pretty sure I can pull over 300lbs. My last 1 rep max was 285lbs. Thats over a 15lb increase.

Bench press – 3 sets of 3 at 132lbs. My last 1 rep max was 235lbs, biggest work set before was 120lbs. 12lb increase.

THE GOALS: So of course I have some goals in mind for the competition in July. I think they are pretty reasonable I think.

Back squat – 250lbs

Deadlift – 310lbs

Bench – 150lbs

My total will be 710lbs. My long-term goal is to qualify for nationals next year and I need to lift a total of 765lbs for that.

It’s always good to have goals. It’s even better to break records. But as you know it doesn’t come without a lot of hard work, messed up diets and probably some tears, oh and can’t forget the embarrassing moments!
