Presses and Squats

Sick, yes I am feeling the effects of a cold. But I feel strong enough to workout and so it goes, giving it my best.

Presses
16/5/5
24/5/5
32/5/5
32/7/7
32/8/8x4

A total off 88 and a sizable increase over the last Press day. Having Rif (a strong partner) helped me to cue in on technique and his verbal feedback really helped me to press well

Squat (week 3)
95/5
135/5
185/3
225/3
247/3
258/3
275/3

This is a great step forward. Learning so much about the squat and my body in relationship to this move. I believe this is better for me than the Deadlift and I was able to get more than triple (Raw) with this move and I am excited to see what I can do with this lift and its effects on the Deadlift.

Great training day even with a cold.

man this is such a strong move for you,even as you are just still learning it. I see 315 for 3 raw in just a few weeks. no problem.It will be interesting to see what it does to your dl strength once we go back to it.

I am very excited to push this lift as well as the dead. I would have never thought to train these moves but I sure am pleased we are. Thanks Rif for taking the time and working with me, teaching me ALL the aspects of this type of lifting
