My second workout on the SL 5x5 Program. This was my first time doing workout B of the program.
I completed 5x5 at 140 lbs. My legs really hurt before starting my lifts. Luckily, the soreness went away after my first set. The second through fourth sets felt really good. I could feel my legs reaching their max on the fifth set. I don't think that I would have been able to get off a 6th rep on my last set.
I completed 5x5 at 45 lbs. I was a little worried about my flexibility and being able to do these with good form. I did a lot of stretching doing these lifts. I hadn't done these before, so I had no way to know what my max was. The 45 lbs was very easy though.
I completed 1x5 at 185 lbs. My 1x5 max was 225 lbs. I cut back quite a bit to work on my form. I don't think that I was anywhere near failure on my last rep.
I completed 5x5 at 0 lbs. I abandoned the abs machine in favor of doing abs on an incline abs bench. I started with no weight, but I will hold weights in the future.
I weight 156.2 lbs at the end of this workout. I was pretty surprised to see this. I'm not eating enough to gain 1.6 pounds in 2 days and I thought my weight was already pretty high last time I weighed myself.
