Monday’s front squats went much better than I had anticipated; the position and speed felt pretty darn good! This was also a volume PR without a belt as well, pretty pumped to push the front squat a little more this time around.
Tuesday’s bench went pretty well. I was hoping to get three sets of ten in with 185lbs but it just wasn’t there today. On the plus side I’ve never benched 185 for more than 6 reps so this was a small volume PR. I decided to lay off the dips for a while since I keep pulling something in my chest, hopefully this will go away with some rest.
Wednesday’s deadlift session felt awesome; each rep was fast and easy. These keep getting easier as the weeks go. 1 more month and I’ll be deadlifting from the floor again, I can’t wait!
Thursday’s bench went pretty smoothly. Since I accidentally did the wrong workout last week I skipped what I had planned to do and moved to doubles instead of singles. Luckily, everything felt smooth and fast, I’m really getting used to not having a hand-off and I know it will help me in the long run.
Friday’s squats were hot and sweaty. I managed to get all 3 sets of 8 in 15:27 which is a record time. They all felt fast and this was the most I’ve done thus far with CAT squats. I don’t think I’ve ever sweat so much during a squat workout, but it felt pretty darn good! Looks like working out early mornings might be my new thing.
Looking forward to next week, I’m starting to implement some more cardio into my routine. My winter gut is getting out of control…
