So last night I hit my first minor lifting milestone. I squatted 5 lbs over my bodyweight (160 lbs, skinny-fat) for 4 reps. It's not much to be honest, but it's progress. I started lifting back in January, had a groin pull at the end of Januaury playing soccer, and had to take a break and start back at lower weights. Since then, I have made steady progress.
I am squatting well past parallel, or what I would say is ass to grass. My initial goals for this calendar year are 1x BW bench, 1.5x BW squat, and 2x BW dead. After that, I'd like to hit 1x BW overhead press, 1.5x BW bench, 2x BW squat, and 2.5x BW dead. Anyway, thanks for reading, I just wanted to share with someone.
