Weigh in 302.2lbs.
10 minute bike ride, 3.15 miles
Squat max test: 5x45, 5x135, 3x225, 1x250, 1x265, 1x285, 1x295, 1x305, 1x315
In between first 3 warmup sets, I did my chin rep max. 2x2.
DBBP: 5x60, 3x70, 1x100, 1x105, 1x110
Notes: I'm a little bummed with the squat number. I think I could have done more, but I couldn't find two competent people who could spot me. I didn't feel secure enough, and the squat rack does not adjust perfectly for me. Either it's the safety bars are too high, where I go to parallel and it hits the bb, or it's too low and I feel like If I just sat back, I may cause more damage then good. Last time I tested my squat max last year, I was doing max ot. It was exactly a year ago that I squatted the same amount of weight with 30lbs on my frame. By design, you would think my squat would have gone up. My routine was different, but with the weight drop I should have been able to go up. I think I could have, but II doubted myself and didn't want to screw around. Next time I test my max, I'm going to give myself a day where I work on falling backwards in the hole so I can become more confident with it.
With chins, i did 2 sets of 2 from complete stretch. I was never able to do two from full stretch. 2rd rep on either set wasn't happening, but I felt strong on those 4 total reps. After that I did DBBP. Could I maybe have done more on a fresh day just doing this lift? Maybe, but 110lbs were ALMOST my failure point. I know I couldn't ever do this before. 105's were the most I was ever able to do, so I'm glad I got up 110's. I never tested a true ORM with BP or DBBP.
I'm hoping that when I test my DL max in Thursday, that I can at least pull 430lbs like I did this time last year. One of the biggest things I noticed was last year, during softball season(played from spring to fall) lifting took a back seat. I did a lot more complexes and less heavy. Did a few different routines...I feel like I never got in the zone like I did right before last season and right before this season. I'm going to make a goal for myself to remain in this zone by only playing ball 1 day a week and not having my gym time take a back seat to softball and beer drinking.
