Day 15 2 May 09

All I can say is WOW!!!, I put off squat day a day to rest. Between work, training, and the family this last week was very exhausting. Here's how squats were today.

Squat warm ups - 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/4 reps, 315lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/1 rep.
Put on suit. Titan Centurion NXG+ super sz 48.
Squats in gear - 405lbs/5 reps, 455lbs/4 reps, 505lbs/2 reps, 545lbs/3 reps.

Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps, 135lbs/12 reps (close Grip), 205lbs/8 reps, 3 sets/4 reps/255lbs, 2 sets/4 reps/275lbs.

This new suit is frustratingly awesome. I didn't make depth on any of the sets but I did manage to get deeper with each set. At 545lbs I was about 3 inches above parallel. There was no one to spot me so I didn't want to go any heavier considering I was that close to my PB (-10lbs).
After week one of gear work complete I think the following will be my openers.

Squat - 250kg
Bench Press - 190kg
Deadlift - 250kg

I had my deadlift suit taken in a bit last week so I may change things after Monday next week.
