Breakfast: oranges

No Treadmill this morning, I didn't set my alarm.

Eats: Fruit smoothie, veggie stirfry, chips and hummus, oranges

Evening Squats: 155# x 30 reps

My legs were getting a little shakey towards the end.
I don't have a squat rack, so I don't want to ever fail while squatting
So I stopped at 30, but the stairs were still easy, so I probably had a few left.
Anyways, 5 more pounds tonight even though no increase in reps
Maybe next time.

Nice benching . . . how are your wrists doing while squatting? This item is pricey, but works . . . from the pictures, one could also easily make their own version.

I was in Billings in the 80s, very cool place. Nice old theater, probably gone now?

Hi Hilary,
My wrist are usually OK during the squat.
Since my chest is usually sore when I squat, I think I don't get my arms back far enough.
Then my wrists bend backwards to reach the bar.
I'm trying to make sure I get my wrists under the bar now.
My wrist were really sore a couple weeks ago when I did the 50 reps.

Was the old theater called the Alberta Bair?
It is still here.

I have the same wrist problem . . . oh well, I sure am not going to stop squatting. I tend to like the high rep stuff as well. Love that burn!
Many thanks for that link, very cool that it is still there. I remember walking in and looking at the stage and one of the huge racks of lights crashing down to the stage floor . . . the stage tech said to all of us, "Don't worry, that usually doesn't happen during the show" Yikes!

Evening Squats

160 x 30

My form was starting to degrade at the end.
More weight on my toes as I went up, so I stopped at 30.
I think I'm done adding weight AND reps at the same time.
Keep the reps at 30 until I get to 185.
Then I might go for the 50 reps again, haven't decided yet.

Now off to the gym for a 30 minute ride on the treadmill.
