5/3/1: Deadlift 1RM

Smith Machine Squats: 95x5, 125x5, 155x5, 185x3, 215x2, 245x1, 275x1.  This was supposed to be the second movement, but all the open spaces to deadlift were taken.  As were the squat racks: I joked that they may have to change Mondays from Bench Press Mondays to Squat Mondays.  As such, unsure about what a boxless squat would feel like, I did this as a test instead of doing 4 sets of 10.  Need more time away from the box, felt odd.  That, or it was too close to my last hard leg workout.

Deadlifts w/35-lbs Plates: 115x5, 140x5, 165x3, 190x5, 220x3, 245x5 (Rep Out Set).  True what they say about squats before deads: I had just a little more pop.

Hoist Roc-It Seated Leg Curls: 133x10x4.  Too easy, will do 155 next time.

Since I did two maxes, I skipped everything else.

You may have noticed the lack of aerobics this week.  Since I have been doing weights everyday until this Friday, I dropped the aerobics.  Will start running on Saturday.
