Solid session after work, programmed by my partner.
5x3 barbell back squats, 185 pounds for me
5x5 barbell strict OH press, 85 pounds for me
And, then, Ms. No-Cardio was all, “Let’s do 10 rounds on the ski erg, 20 cals, you-go-I-go style.” It was fun, but she was cursing the ski erg after round 2.
The weights for both of those barbell movements are approaching my old PRs, and we really haven’t been lifting heavy during the last 13 months of lockdown. So, feeling pretty good about that and looking forward to adding more weight steadily.
I have been comparing myself to others a lot lately and being unhappy with my body. Which is lame! My body pretty strong for its size and I've put on a lot of muscle in the past few years. I've sized out of bras and shirts bc my lats and biceps have grown.
If I focused on my own growth and progress I'd be much happier. Comparison is the thief of joy.
