515lbs Squat @ 160
Tacked another 5lbs on to my squat PR last night. Not a bad birthday present to myself! This lift felt even more solid than the 510 from a few days ago. I had briefly contemplated loading up 520 instead of 515, and I wish I had because I would’ve made it, but I was starting to psych myself out so I went for the small PR. I actually unracked 515, bitched out at how heavy it felt and re-racked it. I had to give myself a metaphorical slap in the face to go back and get the job done. And I’m glad I did.
After this I worked up to an easy 505lbs deadlift just to get an idea of what my opener will be. I felt like I had about 550 in me. I’ll probably open around 500. Just one more squat session and 2 more bench sessions to go before the meet.
