23/12/12
day seven of strong lifts 5x5

squats
35kg
bench
27.5kg
barbell row

squats are getting close to being a challenge, but i thrive on challenge :) bench is still easy but im focusing on form and very slow reps. and im pretty sure ill be stalling on rows soon

Call me ed, I'm enjoying the slow speed of progression, I like to take my time and get things right,. It's a big ego boost when I see meatheads at the gym struggling with weight to heavy for them to handle or not using the full rom, and I'm not lifting anywhere near as much but keeping strict form. It's a marathon not a sprint after all, happy holidays to you too man
