Re: Its me and it's her (the wife)

Tuesday morning and we are both tired, the wife is not at her best today and you can tell... the grumpy side of her came out today so its just to keep her happy and brighten her day up.

Warm up
5min on the C2 rower, when the clock hits every 30seconds to pull really hard for 3 strokes and then go back to a normal even pace.

Some light stretch, mobility and then we hit some light wallballs and also warmed up with barbell squats as that was the theme for today.

Todays plan Squat 3 reps
Now I know both of us were tired so we had no expectations on how heavy we would go today so we took it on the fly. No rush and make every rep count. Now previously I had 8 reps at 100kgs but never took the 3 reps higher, I had a 125kg for 1rep just before the summer. The wife has had an 8 reps at 47.5kgs and 1 rep at 55kgs.

Me X 3 reps
40kg, 60, 80, 90, 100, 110, 115, 120, 126kgs/277lbs new PR (PR for being 46years old, this is my masters PR)

My previous 1rm was 125kgs which was great but today I had no problems with 120kg so I thought I would go for a 1rm at 126kgs. I hit the first rep and it just bounced up so I took a second, then I though ah what the heck go for 3, it was tight but I got it up

The wife X 3 reps
20kgs, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55kgs/121lbs PR, 60kgs/132lbs x1 PR (wife is 47so she is pleased.

Now I thought her previous PR was 58kgs but she wacked out 3 reps at 55kgs which was her previous 1rm and then she hits the 60kgs. So she is more than happy a 5kg/12lbs improvement.

Plan 2 Front squat x1 or x 3reps

100kgs/220lbs 1,1,1,1,1

40 x 3
40 x 3
45 x 3

Warm down

Stretch and mobility

I think we need to have a few more tired days because if they are like what happened today then who knows where the limit is
Better than today, stronger than tomorrow.
