I am not sure how you get to 235 pounds from 135 pounds for 8 reps.  I get 168.75 pounds.

 

I wasn't using any specific formula, I was just guesstimating that my 1RM would be about 30 pounds more than my max for reps.

You specified pounds correctly.  Otherwise I would have unloaded my favorite troll line. :D

 

lol. that's why I put it in there...

I'm not sure where you start your warm-up sets, but you sure seem to do a lot of them!  I tend to start with a small set just under 50% and quarter and plate my way up.  So I go 225 pounds, 315 pounds, 365 pounds, 405 pounds and we are already at 80%!  It depends on what I am doing.

 

I was using this protocol from bodybuilding.com:

 

Here's how you'll load your warm-ups:

30% for 8 reps

40% for 6 reps

50% for 4 reps

60% for 2 reps

70% for 1 rep

80% for 1 rep

 

but given that I predicted my max would be around 165, 90 pounds is way more than 30%, so I did that wrong. Once I got to 165 and realized I could go further I just kept doing 10 pound increases for 1 rep each until I topped out. 

 

I've never tested 1RM before, so I was kind of figuring it out as I went along.

The closest thing I do is occasionally testing my fastest mile or something. I know it's completely different, but similar in that you have to really commit to it.

 

Completely different in the sense that I would die if I ran a mile... even if there were pastries involved.

Anybody who wants their stick pulled with that amount of force is an odd individual. Or very brave.

Challenge update: Did my 1RM squat test yesterday and it was... sad

 

I started out good, using the same warm up protocol as from deadlifts the day before:

 

BW for 8

45 for 8 (so just the empty bar)

65 for 6

85 for 4

 

Then I moved up to 125 for 2, and shiz went bad. I have some sort of tendonitis in my left knee - I tweaked it getting out of a booth in a restaurant a few weeks ago after a workout - and it's been healing slowly with intermittent pain. First rep at 125 felt like I was being sheared in the knee with rusty knives, so I stopped, rested a minute and tried just a bodyweight squat, and still no dice so I called the dive right there.

 

 

I rested for a few minutes (cursing under my breath in multiple languages) then did the rest of my new, less-conditiony workout. I usually work out in circuits but now I'm just doing regular sets, which I have to admit is easier than tucking bits of my equipment*  all over the gym. Everything wound up being for 6 reps per set (except the tire)

 

Tbar rows - 3 sets at 75

Glute Bridges - 3 sets at 120

Bench Press - 3 sets at 70

Tire Flip - one hundred and eleventy flips, 350 pound tire

 

It feels very weird to do such a short workout - even though the weights are heavier it feels like I'm not doing much, since I'm used to doing 25-30 reps on 10-11 moves and crawling out of the gym like I've been beaten with a stick. A stick that's on fire.

 

It was nice to wake up this morning not feeling like I'd been run over by the tractor the tire came off of though.

 

So as of now my 1RM squat is 125, I'm going to give it a few days and see if the knee thing heals. Laaaaaaame. Also it's odd that I could flip the tire, which requires me to get down in a super low sumo squat, but regular weighted squats are a problem. It must be an angle thing.  Human bodies are confusing.

 

 

 

*I saw what I did there.

That's a very Warrior thing to say. Must be powerlifting rules or something because my crossfitting brain rejects the notion.

Like Sam said, controlled doesn't mean a negative rep, just that your hands stay on the bar as it goes back down.

Booo on the knee! Don't worry about it too much, it just sounds like a weird glitchy thing. It might not be better enough for a squat max "in a few days" but I bet you get there quickly.

 

Krispy Kreme Challenge sounds AWEFUL. It actually reminds me of the freaking Hunger Games. But yes, it was 100% cute to post :-)

Plus it deprives you of that very loud BANG when you drop the weights, and really where's the fun in that?

I hope so. I will eat more sausage on stick to increase my protein macros and speed healing.

workout updates

 

Tuesday, intervals on the bike trainer for 1 hour

 

Wednesday, bike trainer (30 mins) in the morning, gym in the afternoon. Still doing 3 proper sets rather than circuits.

 

Box squats 20 reps/bodyweight

T-Bar rows 8 reps/75 pounds

Step-ups 14 reps/60 pounds

Ham Curl 5 reps 70/90/70 pounds. Incidentally there is no way to use the prone ham curl machine without feeling like a pig that's been trussed to smoke and barbeque.

Pullups 5 reps 105/120/120 pounds. I'm sooooooooo close to getting all 3 sets at 105 on the assisted pullup machine.

Kettlebell swings: 8 swings, 55 pound bell

 

My knees behaved themselves thru this whole workout.

 

Today (Thursday) I'm going to go run stadium steps because I'm kind of lazy today and it only takes half an hour

 

other goals: 

Real Food: good, not sure about the sausage on the stick. And by "not sure" I mean "of what animal it was made from"

 

Accompanied: I found a women's cycling club I can join, I'm going to tag on a couple of their group rides first to see if I can keep up. Haven't talked to the trainer at the gym. Mantis gave me some fun new squat complexes to try if my knee pulls itself together.

 

Trash talk/motivation: C'mon, I'm waiting over here.

children should never be given automatic weapons. Their aim is terrible and they waste too much ammunition.

Saturday:

 

Thursday did stadium steps. I got to the park where I do the steps and there was a pee-wee football practice going on, and all the moms were sitting in the stands watching. I felt like an idiot running up and down the steps right next to them but I didn't want to just wimp out so I just did them and tried not to feel weird.

 

Friday: no workout as my legs were destroyed from the steps the day before and I was walking like Frankenstein.

 

Even Abby Normal gets a rest day.

 

 

I had to go to a birthday party last night and in some sort of cruel joke it was in a rooftop restaurant where I had to walk up 5 flights of stairs. This was remarkably painful. I found out later there was an elevator.

 

Today I woke up slightly (extremely) hung over from the excessive consumption of one (one!) margarita. I fear my days of a partying like a rock star may truly be over.

 

My legs still feel like they're made of erector set beams so I will go to the gym later, but only embrace the stick with my upper body. Anything below the hip is a forbidden zone until tomorrow ;)

 

Who's got motivational video to beat this today?
