I completed 5x5 at 150 lbs. My squat is now as high as my bench. It's also pretty challenging, but I feel like I can move higher. I don't see myself stalling until after 165 lbs.
I completed 5x5 at 50 lbs. This is still easy. I'm not sore or worn out have my workouts. I do look pretty ridiculous though pressing the bar with 2.5 lb weights on each side. I know that 5 pounds a workout is good progression, and I'll have 45's on each side in no time, so I'm not going to add extra weight or jump higher.
I completed 1x5 at 195 lbs. I did quite a bit of stretching before this workout to get my technique where it needs to be. 195 lbs isn't too hard and I shouldn't stall until well after 225 lbs.
I completed 5x5 at 0 lbs. I know that last time I reported 5x5 at 5 lbs, but I decided that I needed to increase the incline of the ab bench. I had it at one notch up from as inclined as it could be. I did this because I wasn't sitting all the way up to my legs. I thought that it was because the incline was just high for my body to crunch a full rep. But it turns out that I was just too weak to make the full reps at full incline. Today I was able to do the full reps, so I didn't hold any weight. Also, on the graph, I counted the last workout as doing 0 lbs instead of 5 lbs.
I weighed 159.2 lbs at the end of my workout. I was surprised yet again when I stepped on the scale. I thought I would hold around 157 lbs for a little bit. I'm getting really close to my personal record on weight. The highest I've ever seen on the scale was 160.X lbs, so if I make it to 161 lbs, it'll be a record. I still don't believe that I'm eating enough calories to support the weight that I'm gaining, so I'll understand if it takes me a couple more weeks to see that record. But I'm excited to get and stay over 160 lbs, so I'm really hoping I'll see it by Friday.
