    I skipped Saturday and worked out Sunday so I guess technically it was a November workout, but here it is anyway...

    Workout A
    Squat - Warm up + 4x5 @ 90lbs, 1x5 @ 95lbs (just wanted to see how much heavier it felt, totally doable for next workout)

    Bench - Warm up + 5x5 @ 65lbs. I was supposed to be at 75lbs but I dropped back to work on form

    SKIPPED ROWS! And Did DL instead
    1x5 @ 95lbs, 1x5 @ 115lbs, 1x3 @ 125lbs

    My entire body is sore today!!!

    Great lifting ladies!!

    Starting this week is when I will be adding weight to the Oly bar. I have used the OLy bar only for the first/past two weeks so I can master the form...let's see how it goes.

    Good lift today.

    Squats 5x7 80lb (I was lying to you before when I've said 90lb, unintentionally!). Pretty pleased with the form.

    OHP 5,5,5,5,3 46lb (These were a struggle, but the form was ok for the first four sets). Going to persevere with these.

    Deadlift 5 back up to 134lb. Now that I'm comfortable with my form this is feeling easy and I think I should make some increases.

    Now. I know it's not a competition. But today was the first time I was lifting heavier than someone else. There was an experienced lifter working with a friend, an older and taller man than me. He was deadlifting 67lb, think he did 2 sets of 3. (I was trying not to get caught watching).
