Lifting my max
Today’s workout was a VERY focused and extensive. 4 hours long and very calculated. I started the first of the year off with my 1RM’s for each of my major lifts so that I could start my powerlifting journey to competing. Keep in mind, I am very proud of my results and they have grown since the beginning of 2017 so I knew all my workouts played a part in how far I’ve come. Hopefully within the next 6 or so months, I will continue to see more strength increases with my new program I will be officially starting tomorrow.
For those of you who do not know what 1RM means – it means my 1 rep max, the most amount of weight I can lift for 1 rep.
Bench press: 130 lb ( 135 lb fail)
Barbell shoulder press: 85 lb (90 lb fail)
Barbell back squat: 200 lb (205 lb fail)
Barbell Romanian deadlift: 280 lb (285 lb fail)
