We individually probably could have squeezed it into an hour if I hadn't been with her. Always slows it down a bit to be together. But either way, it was definately pushing my limits. Especially after a whole week of hour and a half workouts. Pretty beat.

Hard work is hard work. Keep doing what you guys are doing! I've never really trained with a partner, so I've developed a 50 minute mindset. But if my wife really got it, or I trained with one of you guys, I wouldn't mind the extra time at all.

Default Legs

Squats-
5x65
5x60
5x55

Deadlifts-
5x75
5x85
5x85

DB single leg elevated raises-
5x40
5x40
5x40 (barely)

Seated calf raises-
30x20
20x25
23x20

I feel really good about this. It was the first time I've ever done squats and deadlifts with a barbell. I've only done dumbell ones before. I'm gonna have a sore neck from the bar. I'm definately proned to injury though as I backed into another bar on the squat rack next to the one I was using while putting on a plate.

Welcome to the forum!!

You do seem rather prone to accidents

Workout's look good always great having your partner into training as well - Wish my wife was into. Might not have had fish and chips for dinner tonight (there goes my cheat meal).

You had an awesome leg out. Yeah your neck might hurt for a little while but it will get stronger. When I first started I went and bought a piece of PVC insulation to pad the bar. Every workout I would tape it on. One day the bar rolled on me, after that I never used it again. Now I don't even feel the bar. Keep it up.

Good workout. Where are you positioning the bar during squats?

Lower neck across the shouders. Base of the neck. Not sure what to call it.

Try to place the bar in the groove below the traps. It will feel much better.
