- 475 Lb x 1 reps + 20 Lb Rep PR
Low Bar Squat
- 405 Lb x 1 reps
Made the deadlift video for my clients so they can see why mobility and flexibility work is so important. Also, 475 went up like butter after not deadlifting over 405 in months. Squat was a little grindy but hadn't low bar squatted over about 60% for a few months as well so I was happy with being able to get it up. Easing back into higher frequency squatting and heavy deadlifts once a week. Still staying away from bench while I fix my shoulder issues but it's getting better. Bench is going to need some heavy duty rehab if I want to actually accomplish a decent bench ever in my life. I'll be happy with a 315 bench some day but I'm just not built to bench huge. Hoping to get back up to the 250-275 range after a few months. We shall see. Focusing a lot on overhead strength and pec/shoulder mobility.
Also, I feel that both of these lifts are a PR in the sense that they met my old PR but we're much better form and would both get 3 lights. My previous 405 squat was a tad high and my 475 dead was shaky and jerky and shitty.
