08/23/07 DE Squat - Inadvertant RAW PR


RAW Squat 135x5, 185x3, 225x2, 315x2, 365x2, 405x2, 455x2, 505x1PR
High Pulls Off Blocks 225x4x3

Well, I had it set in my mind that I would work up to 505 to see if I still got it, and I do, plus some. Possibly 25-30. I wasnt the most motivated today for some reason.

I didnt realize this was a PR until I looked at my Dry-Erase board and tried to find the date I did 505 on, so I went to my paper journal I keep as well and found it was 500 I squatted, not 505. To boot I had a note saying it was a tough one, so cool, I inadvertanly hit a PR, (a mere 5 lbs of course)but I definitely have more. I did good and stuck to my plan of deload with a main movement and one accessory for recovery, and with lack of motivation being the motivation, I ended there.

The high pulls are a movement I stole from Marc Batrley's bag of tricks, (hope he heals up from the Powerstation Pro, good luck Marc if you ever stumble upon this powerlifting blog). I like it needless to say, so it will stick around for another couple weeks. Well thats it from the land of the lost.....

Hey John,

Thanks, I had a bit of a period where I felt I sloughed off a bit, things seem to be picking up again so hopefully the PR's can keep on coming.

I havent seen you around in a bit, hope all is going well. You still training?
