** Met up with Jslep today at a gym did the lifts I will be doing at the meet next week. Thank you Jason for your help!! I didn't write any of this down.... I am going off memory -- but it went something like this:

Squat -- Monolift! That was sweeeeet. I'm def not lifting heavy enough to lift off this machine, but it was fun to play with.
105 1X5
145 1X5
185 2x5
185 1x1
205 1x1
225 1x3 *hack squats -- trying to just feel the weight

Bench
45 1X8
75 2X4
105 2X3ish
115 failed. Twice.

Deadlift
155 1X5
190 1X5
223 1X3
243 1X1X2
*Im not sure on the exact warm up weights -- the collars were different and it screwed me up with my math. The only one I know for sure, for sure was the max at 243. Did this twice with no straps. Yay!

Have you tried a smaller increment yet? For the bench, a 10 lbs increase for women is quite hefty especially as you start hiting the wall, so to speak. Better to try smaller increments and make progress which I think you would if you added 5 lbs and then went from there.

I realise that may be harder at a gym but at home I have no problems adding smaller increments...they may have suitable plates at the gym you go to, they have 1.25kg plates at the fitness centre here which is great for those smaller increments when all else seems to fail.

Still a great session though! Nothing to berate yourself over

I've been pushing Jen to try microloading on the bench. We'll get her on track

I usually just go up 5 lbs at a time. 2.5's are the smallest plates I have. Jason said that 105 went up easy -- I said, yep, it did. And it really did. Felt really easy. Then the 115 went on and I couldn't move it. Very frustrating!!
