Yesterday I managed another gallon and it was much easier than it has been. I also seemd to have gained 3 pounds when I looked at my scale. But then again I don;t really trust my scale and will double check on my girlfriends digital one. After two days rest I felt strong yesterday. I set 5RM PRs in all three lifts squatting 135, benching 124 and power cleaning 105. Here's what it looked like:
125x5 this felt very easy and got me in a good headspace for 135
135x5x3 on the 2nd set I felt some immediate soreness in my upper outer quad (TFL). I felt it on the 3rd set too but was able to lift the weight fine. I rolled it out after the workout and it feels a bit better today but still tight during the concentric motion of the squat. I will continue to roll it out tonight.
124x5x3 I felt strong on all of these. I have very little experience with bench pressing, I have always leaned on the push up to build my pecs. However, I fell that the groove is getting greased up and I am getting more efficient with the movement and hope to see my numbers continue to rise.
105x5x3 I felt great on these. PR'd by 10 pounds, this movement, much like the Bench Press is getting easier to do and I am becoming more efficient and graceful with it.
I have just started thi sprogram but I can't help but wonder where it will take me. I can;t wait for the day I am squatting 200 lbs and deadlifting 300. I'm probably being optimistic but I would like that to happen in 2 months. We shall see.
