Alright y’all. Hit some pretty awesome PRs over the last few days. 315x2 pause bench and 405x4 back squat.
Next up for me is still TBD. I can’t decide if I want to get right back into an SGSS-type program, or if I want to do 5/3/1 for a while, or if I want to experiment and write my own thing. Most likely I’m looking at another 12 week round of SGSS. It’s simple, effective, fun, and has volume.
@JMaier31 you weren’t lying when you said SGSS is legit. I almost failed a squat at 385lbs 3 months ago, and squatted 4 plates for 4 reps today. My max to start this cycle was roughly 290-300, and I finished by hitting a fairly solid 315 double.
That puts my estimated single rep maxes at roughly 330 for bench and 440 for squat. My goals for this year are 335 and 455, but I’m going to wait a while to attempt any one rep max. I suppose it would be pretty awesome to squat 415-425 for 3 and bench 325 for 3, but we’ll see how it goes.
I’m taking a few more days off, just to give my joints and spine a rest. Going to continue doing cardio and probably get back in the gym on Sunday or Monday. I really want to be better about logging my workouts and talking to you guys about our lifting. I hope you all are doing well
