two PR's this week!

First, I chest pressed 95lbs for 2 reps. I would not have done this without a spot and fortunately DH arrived at the gym while I was still working on this exercise (I'm a baby and won't ask anyone else!) I had done a few sets at 90lbs, 3 reps, but I was not comfortable moving up without a spotter.

And I dead-lifted 165, 5 sets of 6 reps. I've done more weight at less reps, so this was a record for that number of sets and reps.

Feels good to have a little something to AW! :)

    Did you see Tony Gentilcore's blog post from yesterday?  There's a video of a girl doing, I think, 265 lbs on the trap bar!

    I saw that, too.  Pretty awesome.

     

    Congrats on your PR's :) I am a wimp without a spotter, too.

    I can't imagine doing 165 for so many sets/reps!  That is amazing.

  • nice work lady!  I'm not a fan of stranger spotters either. 
  • You're so strong!
  • Woohoo!!! Congratulations! You're awesome! :)

     

    I benched 110 for the first time the other day and I couldn't decide if I should AW or it not....chest press is one of my worst exercises Embarrassed

    And I'm the same way! I will schedule my chest day/bench presses around when DH can spot me. LOL I don't know why I won't let other people!
