Comment of the week:
5 Personal Records
High Bar Squat (Paused, No Belt): 485 lb x 2 (2RM) & High Bar Squat (No Belt): 440 lb x 5 (5RM)
+10 lb and +440 lb PR, respectively.
Also, during 440x5, I could feel my hips rising faster than my shoulders coming up for the first couple of reps, so I changed the area where I gaze at so I could look a little higher in order to keep my torso more erect. I think it worked.
Clean & Press: 225 lb x 3 (3RM)
Missed a couple of OHP PR attempts before this. Tried 270x2 (only got 1), then attempted 220x8 (only got 7). Pretty tired after, but managed to "clean" and press 225 for a triple, picking up the bar off the floor for every rep.
It's more of a muscle clean/power reverse curl, but going to call it clean and press anyways.
BTW I should clean my home gym.
Front Squat 405 lb x 4 (4RM)
+55 lb PR! Wanted 5, but 4th rep was tough so I re-racked it there.
Applied chalk to my white shirt. Couldn't see how much chalk I was putting on my shirt though. Kept on slapping on more, just in case.
Paused Reverse Grip Bench Press: 350 lb x 4 (4RM)
Wanted only 4, but went for 5. Thought I would get it, but missed the 5th rep. Triceps not full recovered from Wednesday's pressing shenanigans.
