Ladies and gentlemen...I got 'em. And it felt so nice I did it twice.

My intention was to go in and TCB today. Get in. Squat. Get out. That's exactly how it went down.

Cycle IV Wave 3 Workout A

Squat
45x5
135x5
185x3
225x2
275x1
300x1
315x1- New PR!
315x1

I probably had another one in me. I probably had another 5 or 10 pounds in me. But a PR is a PR. I'll take it for today and save the excess for another time. I half thought about doing a widow maker on the leg press, but I wanted to get home and tell my wife. My other thought too is that I have two more PR attempts this week. I'm in energy conservation mode. So I came home and treated myself to two extra Pop-Tarts and an extra glass of milk. Pizza's in the oven. Half of it is mine.

What I took away from today's session is its OK to cut back on the warmup sets when attempting a PR. I didn't feel gassed for the 315, just nervous.
