130 lb squat today

Why not go for it, right? I'm staying with sets of three across. Dumbbell bench press 3x8x 30, one-handed 3x8x 30. If this goes well I will try sets of three with the 35 lb weights next time. Power clean, 5x3x 70 (wishing self luck!) Romanian deadlifts 1x5x 95, 1x5x 105. This will be a long workout session, two hours I imagine. Must use self-discipline and not get into long conversations too!

Forgot about the warm-up, walk/ jog 4.0 and 5.3 mph intervals for one mile.

The warm-up run went well and my heart-rate went down at a normal time, no racing. Squats were 1x8x air, 1x8x bar, 1x3x 65, 1x3x 85, 1x3x 105, 1x3x 115, 1x3x 120, 1x3x 125, 1x1x 130. More at 130 weren't happening. 3x3x 115 and done. I did 3 sumo deadlifts of 135 because the guys next to me were doing them and I was curious. Dumbbell bench press 3x8x 30, one handed 1x8x 30, 1x6x 30, then I was over doing them so onto power cleans. Power cleans were 1x3x bar, 1x3x 55, 1x3x 65, 5x3x 70- these were good cleans for the most part. I think tightening up my setup helped a lot, the weight did not feel like too much to handle at any point and the only iffy part is that I'm still scraping the front of my neck sometimes.

Tomorrow I am taking a combo class a friend teaches, so going with that as a light weight day, and then lifting again on Friday.
