Fitness Log 2013-08-15: Squats (PR!), Press, Deadlift, CrossFit Total (PR)

Squat (Bas’ Barbell 6 Weeks To A Bigger Squat Week 6 Day 2) — FINAL DAY!

  • Warmup: 45 lbs x 5, 135 x 5, 205 x 2
  • 235 x 2
  • 270 x 2
  • 285 x 1
  • 300 x 1
  • 320 x 1
  • 335 x 1
  • 350 x 1 (PR!)
  • 360 x X

Finally day of the Bas’ Barbell program and the end result was a 15 lb (5%) PR.  Great!  By comparison, my squat went up a mere 10 lbs in the 5 months prior to the squat program so 15 lbs in 6 months is pretty awesome.

The 350 wasn’t easy but it felt like I had more in me so I went for 360.  That proved to be a bit too much and pretty much just drove me down into the power rack safety pins.  Honestly, it may have been a psychological give-up as much as physical.

Press

  • 45 lbs x 5
  • 95 x 3
  • 115 x 2
  • 135 x 1
  • 150 x 1
  • 160 x XX

I decided after getting the squats done that it would be cool to do a quick impromptu CrossFit total.  I was happy to hit 150 given that I’m still recovering a bit from Tuesday’s benching and pressing.

Deadlift

  • 205 x 3
  • 225 x 2
  • 305 x 1
  • 355 x 1
  • 375 x 1
  • 400 x 1

400 lbs on the deadlift is starting to look like my new “easy” max.  I remember not too long ago dreaming about the mythical 400 lb deadlift.  Hitting big milestones is a cool thing.

CrossFit Total

  • 350 + 150 + 400 = 900 (PR!)

Pretty cool to hit 900 for a semi-official CrossFit Total!  Next stop, 1000!
