This week our Tuesday workouts were max workouts. Our goal was to see how much we could lift in one rep (reminded me of powerlifting). Tuesday was Shoulder Press and Deadlift. Melisa and I paired up and we started on shoulder press...NOT push press, NO dip drive...straight up shoulder press. Ouch...and I suck at shoulder press. Warm up was a set of 10 and set of load began with a set of 5, the 3 then 3 sets of 1 reps. Mine went as followed:
Shoulder Press:
10 - 45lbs
8 - 55lbs
5 - 65lbs
3 - 75lbs
1 - 85lbs
1 - 90lbs...this was my max
1 - 95lbs....this one didn't go. stopped at my forehead and wouldn't move LOL
* I created a PR of 90lbs (last PR was 85lbs)

10 - 135lbs
8 - didn't do, time was flying by
5 - 185lbs
3 - saved time by not doing this one
1- 205lbs
1 - 225lbs
1 - 250 (came right up, no worries!)
* I created a PR of 250lbs!

Later on this day, Tuesday, I did an EPOC workout:
10push ups
15 pushups
40 swings
20 push ups

I did all the push ups on my knees and I swang a 25lb dumbbell which all will agree was WAY to light but it was the Rx. To Light! I called time at 3:40.

Thursday was Squat. Squat is a mental game, there is no doubt about that. If you knew me in the past you know I FREAK OUT over squats. There was nothing different about this day LOL! I did freak out! Same rep scheme as Tuesday:
10 - 45lbs
8 - 95lbs
5 - 135lbs
3 - 185lbs
1 - 200lbs
1- 215lbs
1 - 225lbs
* 225lbs is my new PR :)!!

These 3 PRs (push press, deadlift, and squat) got me a double C sticker for my car!! HECK YEAH!!! As soon as I can, I'm going to put it on my car!! I'm proud!

Well I took Friday off because Saturday was the FINAL EPOC workout!
