Today's weight lifting...

Friday, November 09, 2012

I was pretty sore after Tuesday's weight lifting in my back and legs.

Today, I was healed almost completely, so I went to lift weights. I squatted 2x5@85kgs(187lbs), and 2x4 and 1x3 at the same weight. It is incredible how an additional 2.5kgs(5.5lbs) make the weight noticeably heavier. This is about 3% increase, yet makes it feel so much heavier.

I did bech press, first trial was 1x5@65kgs(143lbs). But it felt so heavy. So I went an additional 4x5@62.5kgs(137.5lbs).

Finally the bent over barbell rows... Did straight 5x5@72.5kg(159.5lbs) without problems. No complaints from my back, but my arms do complain.

Basically struggling with correct form, lifting heavier weight, increasing strength and fat loss.

    Idea, take it for what it's worth - if you're struggling with correct form and you're not hitting all reps, might be time for a deload?
