I apologise in advance for a post that is blatantly self indulgent but I just had on of THOSE training sessions. You know the ones where everything goes perfect and PR’s fall left, right and centre?? Well today was one of those days.
I hit my highest ever raw (beltless too) squat today, and not only that, but I did it for 3 reps too. 190kg/420lb
I smashed my wrapped 3 rep PR too. It had been 190kg/420lb which I hit in June coming up to the comp I qualified for the world champs in (and squatted 272.5kg/600lb at). I did 210kg/465lb x3 with loads left in the tank. I’m really on course for a big squat now, I had been gunning for a PR of some sort, but now I 285kg/630lb is definitely on the cards.
Finally, I hit a rack pull PR of 240kg/530lb x5 from below my knees today. My previous best was something like 230kg x3.
ALL ON THE SAME DAY!!
Here’s a vid of the day; http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=evSoy5UhM5Y
While I’m at it, I hit a shirted bench PR yesterday too, 170kg/375lb 3x3. Here’s a vid of the second set; http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=Ev5ENytzjk4
Once again, sorry for the ego-manical posting, but I’m on a serious high right now.
Oh and bodyweight’s at 100kg/220lb on the button right now too.
