155 lbs. – 3×5 – 5, 5, 5
Main goal while the weight is light is trying to develop some muscle memory. During deadlifts the previous workout, I realized I wasn’t doing a very good job setting my lower back, but I got a feel for it once I got that worked out. Goal for squats is to make sure I apply that, since I’m starting to think that I was missing some of the basics before.
But again…my conditioning…wow. It’ll improve rapidly, but still.
90 lbs. – 3×5 – 5, 5, 5
Such a low weight. So painful to do (psychologically).
95 lbs. x 2 – 3xfail – 20, 13, 12
The “units” I am using on these are the pillars in the gym. I basically just walk in a rectangle around the middle portion of one of the rooms, and count the number of pillars I pass as the distance. The pillars are probably 10-12 feet apart. I go until failure (or very near it). At this weight, the failure comes because of my traps and other upper back muscles.
