Keep smashing it.
Tried doing it a little different today. Less reps up the ladder.

01/29/2013

1 Rep max Bench

Stats
Weight: didn't check
Location: Anytime Fitness
Mood: Average
Length: 1 hour 30 minutes

Warm Up went with 10 mins of light elliptical to get things going again today.
Intra: water


Primary Lifts

MEDIUM GRIP BENCH PRESS
*this week, we are 1 rep maxing all the major muscle groups. I've never personally NEVER done a true 1 RM test, so there is definitely a learning curve. There are so many to go about it, still searching for what is maximal for me.

135lbs x 10 reps
175lbs x 5 reps
225lbs x 3 reps
245lbs x 1 reps (PR)
250lbs x 1 reps
255lbs x 1 rep
260lbs FAIL at lockout
260lbs FAIL at lockout
260lbs FAIL at lift off

Tried not to mess around and get up to what I know is the heaviest I've ever lifted. I've never done a true 1 RM, but I do have some idea on the Bench where I would be. I wanted that 260 bad, but it just wasn't going to happen today. This helps me set some goals for the year. I would love, love, love to be in the 315 range in 2013.


Then, to really finish off the day:

LISS cardio Dreadmill
Walking at 12% incline, speed 4.0mph

TOTAL: 15 minutes
