Would have settled for 3 reps, but I went ahead and did 4 anyway.
Reverse Grip Bench Press
Paused until work sets.
Experimented with a different way of gripping the bar. Basically instead of my thumb gripping around the bar and crossing on top of my index finger, it was in line with the bar. Felt more stable at first...
45 lb: 10
140 lb: 5
230 lb: 3
280 lb: 1
330 lb: 1
365 lb: 2
Missed on the 3rd rep.
365 lb: 3 * PR!
3 rep max by +10 lb!
Changed back to my regular grip on the bar. Less scary.
REGULAR GRIP Bench Press: 350 lb x 1 (1 rep max by 10 lb!)
350 lb regular grip seems puny compared to my 395 lb reverse grip 1RM lol
Had to wear neoprene pads because I'm not used to the bar pressure on my palms yet :/
Front Squat: 405 lb x 1 (1RM)
LMAO4PLATE milestone, and +5 lb PR with no knee wraps.
Wore the Three Wolf Moon shirt though.
Pretty sure I would have missed this rep without harnessing it's mystical, performance enhancing powers.)
Deadlift: 500 lb x 1 (No Belt, Hook Grip)
1 rep max with no belt. Time to start tracking no belt deadlift PRs.
Tip: Track a variety of different exercises and variations of the same exercise through many rep ranges, that way there's more opportunities to hit PRs all the time and post something on 70's Big every PR Friday.
Deadlift: 500 lb x 5 (5RM with straps and +40 lb PR!)
Missed at 550 lb THREE times (first two times used hook grip, third time used straps, but gassed out).
This pissed me off so I went for a 5 rep max with 500. Had to re-adjust the straps mid set because it wasn't tight enough.
