1 rep max back squat (3 attempts)
1 rep max barbell press (3 attempts)
1 rep max deadlift (3 attempts)
I didn't start off well. As a warm up, I did a set of five 135lbs backsquats, then threw 225lbs on the bar and started a rep without focus, without breathing right, and failed. Spectacularly. I could have hurt myself, but was l-u-c-k-y and bailed without any injury. Being stupid with heavy weight is a recipe for injury. So, I picked myself up off the ground, stretched a bit, turned my brain on, talked with my coach Lance, and decided it was best to revisit backsquats another day. Then I got down to business and focused on the barbell press.
back squat: 225F
press: 105lbs (PR tie), 115 (PR), 120 (PR)
deadlift: to be done Wednesday
So... I started off very very poorly this morning, but ended up with a new best on the press, a lesson learned, and no stupidity-induced injuries. Case o' the Mondays? Could be. But come Wednesday, I'm going to beat the backsquat and deadlift like a crappy copy-machine!
