Friday March 23rd

Bench Press
95x5
135x5
168x15x1
225x2


Probably had a triple with 225, didn't push it though. This is the first time in my life I've ever benched over bodyweight.

Squat
135x5
185x3
225x1
280x12x1


Felt no need to go heavier, 280 felt pretty heavy on my back without a belt.

Marketing
Make Front Page Of Googlex1


Booyah, feels pretty good man. I think most of the other gyms and trainers are lazy because all I had to do was put up about 30-40 decent quality backlinks to get to rank 4 and 5 for two of my keywords. Only on page 5 though for the more general "personal trainer montreal".

Tuesday March 27th

Bench Press - TnG
95x5

190x1
200x1
210x1

245x0


I think this method of training is working, or I'm just getting a much needed deload. 1.09x bodyweight, booyah. Now I definetely need more than 48 hours rest though, I'm having trouble holding my hands steady right now.

Friday March 30th

Squat
95x5
135x5
185x3
225x2
275x1
320x8x1


First two singles were beltless, and holy crap it felt like a ton. Max 4 reps were possible. I put on the belt and it felt like I had 10+. Sucks actually.

Down to 218 now, 22 pound loss in 8 weeks. Things are looking like I'll be in the 180-190 range at my goal of 12% BF.
