I barely got started before I became lax in updating my log. Fear not! I actually have been training.
I had worked up to 315x5 about 5-6 weeks ago. Then I took a week off and ramped back up to it again. I had a little more confidence this time, and while it wasn't easy, the reps were never in doubt. So the base strength is clearly there for the 350+ bench I want to hit at 198. I just need some lower rep practice now.
GM to low pins
Real nice little squat workout. Much the same as with bench, I think my base strength is decent but I need more practice with low reps. The 455 single wasn't hard by any means, but I'm not ready for the 525 I want to hit. The reps with 405, on the other hand, felt smooth and easy. As for the GMs, 175 might not sound like much, but that shit is hard for me. It's obviously a weak point.
