went to the new (well, kind of) gym yesterday to squat. I know my way around due to going there before, so no surprises. had hoped to avoid the after work-crowd, but alas, I failed. since I am used to lifting alone (or with just a couple of people) in a very decent facility at work, this was a bit shocking.
all the barbells were being used when I arrived. asked the guy who was setting up in the power rack if I could work in and he readily agreed. just a normal guy, no fancy clothes or apparent bad attitude.
legs were a bit shaky from the start. thought warming up would help.
squat, 3 /3 / 3+. after warmup:
- 3x 125 kg
- 3x 143.5 kg
- 5x 160 kg (3+)
- 3x 160 kg (joker)
- 1x 160 kg (joker)
I did enough work to feel happy.
these were hampered by my lack of planning (forgot band at home) and by the crowded place.
good mornings: 5x 10 reps at 80 kg. felt stronk.
deadlifts: 5x 5 reps at 140 kg. stop and go. arm held up decently despite being fully extended. applied local anti-inflammatory when I got home.
