Thoughts on today's weight lifting
Monday, October 29, 2012
So I went to the gym pretty refreshed, without any pain anywhere, after about 5 days of no exercise. I squatted 82.5kgs(181lbs) 2x5+3x4. The overhead presses were 1x3+1x4+2x3+1x2 at 50kgs(110lbs). The deadlifts improved again: 1x5 at 125kgs(275lbs).
My technique has improved a lot, especially the squats, and overhead presses. Quite happy with that.
I am considering to go back to 1800kCal range from the current 2200kCal range, given that my strength really is not increasing over the past 2 months. I might as well lose some fat. I need to do short but fast cardio of about 15-20mins to increase the metabolism in non-weight lifting days.
That is all for today. Next weight lifting workout is Wednesday.
