Day 18 8 May 09

Squat day today was awesome! I worked out today at the Greenwood Powerhouse with some of the guys that will be competing May 30th. Here's how things went.

Bench Press - 135lbs/12 reps (CG), 225lbs/6 reps, 315lbs/2 reps.
Gear Bench Press (Inzer RageX) - 365lbs/2 reps, 405lbs/miss, 405lbs/1 rep.

Squats - 135lbs/6 reps, 225lbs/3 reps, 315lbs/2 reps, 365lbs/1 rep.
Gear Squats (Titan Centurion NXG+ super) - 405lbs/2 reps, 495lbs/2 reps, 585lbs/1 rep.

I wasn't pleased with my bench press. My shirt wasn't on properly with my left sleave not torqued the way I usually like. The last 405lbs barely went up.
Squats were another story. 585lbs is a 35lbs PB and I didn't even use knee wraps. With someone watching at the side confirms that I was just below parallel. Very nice if I do say so myself.
