**************DAY 1 OF PM MASS PROGRAM*************
warm up= 1k row and shoulder work with band.
FRONT SQUAT- Prescribed as 60% of clean. My clean is weak, 155. so that means I'm only supposed to front squat 95 lbs. That felt like a warm-up set, so I increased percentage to 70% which put me at 105 lbs.
STANDING PRESS-Prescribed as 60% of press. My 1RM press is 125, so that put me at 75 lbs. That felt light to but I went ahead and used that weight for all 6x6. Should I be struggling in the last set of the 6x6. I know I'm new to lifting but shouldn't I be lifting heavier if I wanna grow??
WEIGHTED CHINS-Prescribed as 60% of my 1RM weighted pull-up. My 1RM is 55, so that put me at 33 lbs. I can barely do 3, let alone 6x6. Decreased by 1/2 to 15 lbs and was able to kip the last set and finish. That percentage didn't seem to translate well to the chins.
ABS/BACK- Did hanging leg raises 12,12,12,9 and good mornings with 45lb plate 15,15,15,15. I need a GHD...
