26 December (1RM Testing Day)

Back Squat – 10 x 60kg, 5 x 80kg, 5 x 100kg, 5 x 110kg
1 x 130kg
1 x 135kg
1 x 140kg
1 x 145kg
1 x 150kg (belt)
1 x 155kg (belt)

I didn’t try 150kg unbelted as I felt i’d probably injure myself, ditto 160kg belted.

Bench Press – 8 x 60kg, 8 x 80kg, 4 x 100kg
1 x 110kg
1 x 117.5kg
1 x 122.5kg
1 x 127.5kg
0 x 130kg

130kg may as well have been 300kg, I couldn’t even control the descent as it settled on the safety pins. Quite lucky to have chosen those weights as doing 125kg would probably have taken too much out of me.
