150kg x 8 (10kg improvement)Side notes / highlights of todays workout:
I finally broke into the 3 digit squats (100kg, yay! Still a long way to go though).
I finally stacked the leg curl machine and the leg extension machine at one of the gyms I go to.
On another note, with the standing calf raises, I use dumbbells as we have no calf raise machine (i.e. 60kg is 2x30kg dumbbells above). The problem I have hit is that I can go heavier but cannot grip the increase in weight, therefore I will have to stay at that weight uon that exercise until I invest in some straps.
As for the stiff legged deadlifts, I am happy with my current progress. I don't hace thee gripping problem with these for some reason, which is good, although I am not sure how heavy I should go to on stiff legged deadlifts. What's your opinion?
