Weight training update
Wednesday, November 14, 2012
So, I figure, happiness is about expectations being met.
I am happy with my workout. There is no overnight strength or muscle gains, but that does not make me unhappy. Because I realize that I am more comfortable during the exercises. That is also progress.
I have squatted parallel with low barbell 82.5kgs (181.5lbs) 2x5 and 3x4 in relative comfort. The three sets where I missed the fifth rep is because I did not want to be uncomfortable, not that I might fail. Form loss is considered failure.
Also I must mention that I no longer suffer from sore back after working on my form. I did not need to deload either, which is great.
Bench presses at 62.5kgs (137.5lbs) were done 3x5 and 2x4. Form loss is considered failure.
Barbell rows were at a new high: 75kgs ( 165lbs). However, I have lost form rather too early: 3x5 and 2x4.
