OGs enjoying a Saturday
STRENGTH:Back Squat 5x5
STRENGTH:Bench Press 5 Rep Max
hey good idea
Back squat: 5X8, 85, 75, 75, 75. I felt really fatigued after the broad jumps during the warmup.
Bench press: 5RM 68#.
BS: 3x5 at 225lb then out of time. Need to get lower still (chest up! knees out!).
BPress: 5rm at 155lb. Thanks to Jeff B for the guidance.
back squats 5rm 245lbs not pleased. i feel it should have been 20-30lbs greater.
obviously i'm not squatting enough
bench press 5rm 165 and that's just horrid to me.
looking forward to more open gym time to work on certain skills
tomorrow is another day
squat: 135 (5x10 rep scheme). tried a higher bar position thanks to coach B and a narrower grip to flex my massive traps thanks to dave. at first it was uncomfortable but after a set it started to feel natural and most important it made it more natural for me to keep my chest up higher and i felt like i was getting pretty low.
bench: 125x5. felt good.
ES: BS - 225lbs, BP - 185lbs
Nice fun WoD to do when you're flight is cancelled, lol. The backsquat went really lite on so I could focus on depth and holding out at the bottom. Was pretty neat to work on the hips and trying to figure out how things feel and what muscles were and were not engaging so I can be more observant in the future. Bench press I haven't done since college. Looking forward to getting strong in this area.
back squats to 5x100. thanks to stephen for helping me figure out how to get into a comfortable low-bar position.
bench press 5RM 80#
BS: 135x5 - wasn't too tough, was based on an older 1RM
BP: 105x5 - should've tried 115, to see what happened, but was probably somewhere between the two for the actual 5RM.
back squat: 5x5 flat sets @ 205, squatting low, felt great
bench press: never did that before - 5rm 155
BS: 5x8 flat at 110#.
BP 5RM at 75#, probably have 5-10# more with fresh shoulders. Fun to work a different lift!
Back Squat 3x8 @ 95# 1x8 @ 105# 1x8 @ 110#
Bench Press 5 Rep Max 1x5 @ 65# 1x5 @ 70# 1x4 @ 75#
Stephanie and Hannah were great with the positive peer pressue to push me to do more :)
Squat : 135x5x5, then a bonus set at 145. No pain in the back which was good, but I used to be able to do way more.
BS = 8 reps, 145#, 155#, 165#, 165#, 165#
BP = 5 rm 185#
BS: 4x5 @ 155, 5 @ 175, 5 @185. I'm thinking that 6+ weeks of almost nothing but air squats and lunges might have improved my 1RM a bit - will be interested in checking that out later.
Subbed 5 rounds of 90m shuttle sprints for bench press
