Monday Febuary 21st
Huge increase because I just got a new inzer 4" belt. Previously I had been using an old cheap tapered york belt that was 2" in the front 4 in the back. The larger belt makes a huge difference. I was much more stable with no hint of back rounding even on the last rep. Also wore my TK knee sleeves, which help a bit too. So yes, artifically inflated numbers, but much better form (and greater stress on leg muscles) so I'm going to keep up with this level of gear. Honestly my torso felt like a fucking rock with that belt. This will also neccesitate a larger jump next cycle because personally 15 reps on 5 day is a little excessive.
First set went up like bodyweight but the next two, and especially third, presented a bit of a challenge.
Well see how this number improves as my squat and good morning progress. I think its already proof that a belt doesn't weaken your core, but I wasn't using a full sized belt. Got a vid but my well shaped ass is exposed so I wont be uploading it.
