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

Wednesday morning and tired, tired, tired. Still have to get up and go to the gym.

Plan - quite simply.... squat

Warm up
60 cals on the rows

We warmed up as needed, a good amount of mobility and full range of motion.

Today was all about taking it to the limit, 1 RM max weight. All in today.

Wife's PR = 63kgs/139lbs
Myself = 140kgs/308lbs (masters)

So the plan was to do our own thing, higher reps on the light weights from the start and from there it's singles all the way.

20kg x 5 reps
25 x 3 reps
35 x 2 reps
45 x 1 rep
50 x 1
55 x 1
60 x 1
65 x 1 new PR
68 x 1 new PR
70kgs/154lbs x 1 = 3rd PR for the day
7kgs/15lb PR, damn amazing today

i then told her to drop the weight and see how it feels
60kgs x 2 reps
60kgs x 1

after that i told her to drop the weight by 50% and go for 1 set unbroken.

30kgs x 50 reps

I watched her and she went to 10 reps, 20 reps, 28 or something and i lost count and she just kept going and going. The only reason she stopped at 50 was because she said she was tired in her traps....

40kgs x 5 reps
60 x 4
80 x 3
100 x 1
110 x 1
115 x 1
120 x 1
124 x 1
128 x 1
132 x 1
136kgs/299lbs x 1 = 97% of 1 RM, very pleased with that indeed

Dropped the weight

100kgs/220lbs x 10 reps

Just as the wife did, dropped the weight 50% to 50kgs. There was no way i was going to be better or worse than the wife.

50kgs x 50 reps unbroken

We spent just over an hour on squat alone, pure quality lifts, no rush what so ever.

Cool down
clean up all of the weights and bars then a good stretch for 20min.

great day today for both of us.
Better than today, stronger than tomorrow.
