Warmup as always, starting to get better mobility from the drills I do. Always nice to see improvment.
Squats 1x10 20kg, 1x10 40 kg, 1x6 60 kg, 1x5 80 kg 3x5 87.5 kg.
Benchpress 1x10 20 kg, 1x8 40 kg, 1x5 50 kg, 3x5 57.5 kg.
Deadlift 1x10 40 kg, 3x5 70 kg.
Did some light work for my shoulders.
I’m still pumped up after todays workout, I feelt like a normal weekend warrior today My body is feeling great, except for my left hip that I hurt relaxing during a squat I wanted to breath in when I was going down squating with 87.5 kg, I had my ass on my calves before I could recover from it. Hopefully the pain in my hip will go away.
I had a friend who is going to be a PT be my training partner today wich was great since I could go all out today. The only things he thought I could improve with my squat was that I went a little too low for his liking, wich in my book only sounds like I am doing something right. The second thing was that I needed to use my abs more, might throw in some ab work, if anybody has any ideas about this feel free to help me out.
Benchpress was good, technique is getting better and better.
Deadlift I changed from the original rippetoe program. I am going to use 3x5 instead of 1x5. This will allow me to use a lighter weight wich will help my fingers out a bit and also will focus on form more. Will increase it 5 kg a time from now on.
Was fun to talk to somebody that thought that going below parallell was a bad idea for the squat. He also thought it was weird that I tried to get my feet as close to the bar as possible, I hope people understod that one.
He also said he likes doing squats in a smith machine, since it helps him go heavier… But I wondered if he didn’t lose all the “core” muscles etc. that you workout when you use free weights. His responce was that he will try it on sathurday, when we will workout together
Stay strong and healthy t-people !
