Starting to the see the light at the end of the tunnel! The end is still far off though.

Went to the gym at 9 AM with a lady friend for some liftin. Full credit to her for really enjoying deadlifts and squats, especially together – its a very draining workout. We traded sets, so when I was done my weight, we loaded her weight, she went, loaded my weight, I went, etc. Essentially, it was too much rest at the start, but rests were almost too short when it got busy. Oh well.

warm-up: none, lol lazy

Deadlift (barefoot, traded sets with my friend)

160 x 5 (double overhand)
205 x 5
235 x 5
295 x 5 (switched to crossgrip, added belt)
335 x 3
375 x 5

notes: I would have gladly done more sets, but we were squeezed for time (she only had an hour, then had to meet her husband for brunch). Her top set was 245 for 4, she weighs about 180. Pretty strong chick.

Squats (Romaleos, SBDs, traded sets until top sets)

135 x 5
165 x 3
205 x 3
245 x 1 (put on belt)
280 x 1

notes: At this point, she left to go do cardio. I kept squatting. She didn’t want to go heavy on squats after heavy deadlifts, so her top set was 170 for 4, then did a backoff set of 135 for 10.

(alone now, rests kept at 90 sec)

330 x 1
330 x 1
330 x 1
330 x 1
330 x 1

notes: I had to get back to studying for my French test, so I packed up my stuff and came back home. Short and sweet.
