    Default PR Everything

    Great workout this afternoon, my last real lift before next Saturday's RPS Christmas Carnage meet with Kong. PR'd all three lifts in the context of the workout, without going to absolute limit on any of the three.

    Squat
    45x5x2, 155x5, 235x3, 325x2, 395x1, 465x1, 485x1 - PR, 465x1x3
    5 heavy singles at 465, except the 2nd at 485 which is a 10lb PR. All 5 were really tight and smooth, no doubt that all would go up. Felt awesome, my squat hasn't been this locked in in a while.

    Bench Press
    45x5, 135x5, 225x3, 275x2, 315x1, 365x2 - PR, 335x1 - Paused, 365x1 - Paused PR, 375x1 - Paused PR
    A heavy double, followed by 3 heavy paused singles. The 365 double was both a PR and a limit set - the 2nd rep must have taken 30 seconds. At least 3 separate moments in there where I didn't think I had it, but kept pushing and this week I had a better spotter who let me grind it out.
    335 paused was easy, 365 was pretty hard, 375 was hard but probably had 5-10 more lbs in me. And this is after the 365 double to almost failure. Felt great.

    Deadlift
    185x3, 325x2, 435x1, 505x1, 535x1 - PR, 555x1 - PR
    Wanted to test my Deadlift since I haven't done a full pull for a couple months, and figured better to do it today with a week to recover, than Tuesday when I'll work up to openers. The 505 was pretty easy, 535 hard but clearly had more in the tank so went to 555. It was a slow pull but at no point did I worry it wouldn't go up. Probably had 10-20 more lbs in me if I pushed to the limit.

    All in all a great day. Now we're off to my favorite NYC restaurant for an all you can eat steak-and-meat-fest with Josh and Shelley. Meat-eating PRs to follow.

    Thanks all.

    Rob - Plataforma Churrascaria in Midtown. I would try to describe the awesomeness, but would only fall short. It needs to be experienced to be believed. They also have a Tribeca location.

    Mac - Really I'm just barely staying ahead of you in the DL. I keep looking at the rearview mirror to make sure you're not about to pass me. Warning: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear!

    I've never been there, but I will have to check it out. They just opened a Brazilian steakhouse about 15-20 mins from me here at home that I'm itching to try out.
