More accidental gym PRs

I did it again!

Squat – 2x215lb, 185lbx(5,2)
Deadlift – 2x215lb
Leg press – 3x10x300lb
Glute bridge – 3x10x115lb
Leg extension – 3x10x95
Leg curl – 3x10x95

Remember how last leg day I was musing how putting 45lb and 35lb plates on the bar was no joke? Well, I put that on the bar this morning, stared at it for like 5 minutes, did 2 reps, nearly failed the second (first time I’ve come close to failing squats! didn’t think I was gonna get up) racked the bar and went "wtf was that?" And then realized that’s how I load deadlifts… that was 215lb. And I had a good laugh, unloaded it, and did a set at 185, realized my back was toast, did 2 more and decided that was enough. Of course, then I put more weight on leg press too so this workout was all extra extra.

It’s reassuring, both in the gym and in my life, that I am stronger than I think. If I can set aside fear, I can handle a lot more than I’d ever imagined.
