Today has been great! I've just come back from the gym rocking these bad boys for the first time, and I'm pretty impressed. The stability this shoes provides is ridiculous! It's like you're glue to the damn floor :D

Front squat
Warm up sets: 5x20 - 5x40 - 3x60 - 3x70 - 3x90
3x5 107,5kg

Bench press
Warm up sets: 5x20kg - 5x30kg - 5x40kg - 3x50kg - 2x65kg
3x5@82kg

Deadlift
Warm up sets: 8x100kg - 5x120kg - 3x130kg - 3x140 - 2x150kg
1x5 152,5kg

I totally grilled some douche today :D Him and his bosu ball curling friends were taking up all the space at the DL platform, so I asked the guy if it was okay if I warmed up in betweens his sets. The guy turned to me with this smock fucking grin on his face and said "Yeah, but you'll have to do with the weight that's on, cuz I'm in a hurry". I took a quick look at the plates, 100kgs, and thought to my self, this shit is on asshole! I did a quick set of 8s and asked him if it was okay if I smacked on some more plates because I'm tired of lifting baby weights. Man, his facial expression was priceless, haha! Anyways, I finished my set of 152,5kgs and as I walked away from there I heard one of his friends say "Holy shit dude, he was strong as fuck.. You got totally outlifted, Brian" That was probably one of the most satisfying moments in my time lifting weights. I know this might be stooping to his level, but damnit! I just can't help myself with these types.
