Tuesday - (2-23-2010) - Session 19:
Squat: 265 3x5
Bench: 215 3x5
Deadlift: 280 1x5
The 750# goal on the Big 3 has been crushed!!!
This was listed as a midterm goal, which I thought would take 6-9 months to achieve. I still can't believe it.
The squat weight increases have been very manageable but tough since decreasing my increases to 5# a session. The bench decrease to 5# a session is working good too, since I'm only struggling the last rep or two in set three. The deadlift increases will have to slow down in the near future as I'm really working hard to get the weight up and keep good form. I'd like to get two more sessions of 15# increases before dropping it to 10#. This will give me some working room to keep my deadlift above my squat weight in case I have some bad sessions and don't increase the deadlift weight or drop the deadlift increases to 5# for awhile.
I ordered a pair of 1.25# plates. I don't foresee needing them in the next few weeks but you never know, especially since my OHP is a real fight every session. Also, I'm going to adjust my goals on my first post of this thread. I see now that my lifting goals were conservative and my weight loss goals were aggressive.
