165 Lb Squats & Down a Total of 11.3 Lbs in Body Weight
Isn’t that a beautiful picture? I think so, my own version of a beautiful landscape, haha. Those 35's are gone. Those are 45’s on there with 10’s and 5’s. I squatted 165 pounds today! Yes, it was soon to squat again, based on the total stiffness of my legs, but I just wasn’t pumped up doing back and squats rile me up so it made sense. I started at 95 lbs instead of the usual 65 and went high. 165 lbs starts to hurt my shoulders even with the big red squat sponge cushion. If I start squatting 200,300, how is that supposed to work? I’m guessing I would just acclimate to it. I behaved and went to the core mix class this morning. It’s not really my thing though. I need to just start making myself do abs on my own time. It’s my weak spot both in motivation and definition.

9:30 am Breakfast
½ cup Old-fashioned Oatmeal with 1/3 cup blueberries
10:30 am – 1:00 pm Gold’s Gym Abs, Back, Squats, Cardio
40 min “Core Mix” Class
The last 20 min is stretching so I cut out early. I could probably use the stretching, but I lack the spare time. The ab stuff was interesting, but I think I’d be better off at her “Crunch” class on Monday or Friday evening. It’s more concentrated.

I really wasn’t feeling it today, so even though it was supposed to be a back day I decided to do a squat pyramid simply because they make me smiley. Yes, I realize I’m odd.

Set 2: 115 lbs x 8 reps

Set 4: 135 lbs x 6 reps
Set 5: 155 lbs x 6 reps
Set 6: 160 lbs x 6 reps
Set 7: 165 lbs x 8 reps
Set 8: 135 lbs x 6 reps
Check out my new heavy =) 165 lbs woot woot!
My legs were already super stiff and sore from Friday’s leg work out, so if you see me on a set of stairs tomorrow going “owowowowowwowowow” you really oughtn’t feel bad for me; it’s a perverse pleasure.
Check out the heavier than normal weights on these. Definitely because I was mentally pumped up from my squat pyramid =)
Set 1: 80 lb offset x 6 wide grip x 6 reverse med grip x 6 narrow grip
Set 1: 60 lb offset x 6 wide grip x 6 reverse med grip x 6 narrow grip
Set 1: 50 lb offset x 6 wide grip x 6 reverse med grip x 6 narrow grip
The lower the weight the better on these because that is how much is being deducted from my body weight. Ultimately I want to be capable of real pull-ups. I could never get a full one back in the days of middle school / high school and the President’s physical fitness test. Those puppies do not come easily!
“Fat Burner Plus” Program
I had set it to level 8, but had to go to level 6. I’d also set it to 35 minutes, but just under 23 minutes in I realized I’d likely fall off and or fall asleep on it in exhaustion so I got off while it was still a choice. I’d really like to get my usual energy level back already, bleh :(
