This was an abbreviated lift. I forgot that my gym closes early on Friday. I ended up having a grand total of 15 minutes before they kicked us out.
My main mission today was to increase my squat numbers so I did just that. I ended up doing one circuit of all the lifts and then the final two sets of squats.
Here are today’s numbers.
Dumbbell Snatch (8×40)
Went up 5 pounds. I didn’t feel too comfortable with my form. I’m not sure that you can really do these wrong though. I guess my reps were just slower then I think they should be.
Ranging Squat (10×135, 10×135, 10×135)
I added 35 pounds from last time. I’m embarrassed that it took me this long to do it. I’m also embarrassed that I was really nervous before I got under the bar. My back felt fine. Maybe the time crunch helped. I didn’t have time to think about it. I knew I didn’t have long so I just went at it as soon as I caught my breath.
I’m very happy with my depth. I think my decision to do these with my feet at a 45 degree angle has made all the difference. It’s just a different feeling then when they’re parallel.
One Arm Dumbbell Press (10×50)
I used the 50 on my last set last time so I started with it this time. Not too much trouble.
Dumbbell RDL w/row (10×32.5)
I was incredibly nervous about adding any weight on this exercise but I did it anyway without any problems.
