PRs and long lifting goals were had today.
Bench - 135, 170,205, 235x5, 275x3, 205x8 - (275x3 PR. Never ever even tried that weight before, pretty gnarly for me)
BB Rows - 105, 130, 160, 185x5, 225x5, 160x8 (225x5!!! Programmed to do 3 but was too stoked to get it)
Floor Press - 135, 145, 145, 155x8
Pull Downs (Wide) - 160, 170, 180, 190x8
Ever since I heard how awesome the bb row is and when I fumbled with the bar and could barely get 95 I always have wanted to do 225 rows. Now I'm doing them with no straps and just man handling them. Kept form in check, no over zealous pulling.. Explosive as hell but wasn't using a cheater pull.
The d-bag that curls 40s with a weight belt was there and to my surprise he was doing squats.. I've never seen him do any compound lift at all. He laughs at me a lot and when he was struggling to quarter squat 185 and I started rowing 225 he ended up leaving. Hopefully he gets the idea.
Get strong my friends.
