Entry #978

Safety squat bar squats:
150 x 5
240 x 5
290 x 5
295 x 3
300 x 2
> Reps were very slow, for the most part. Didn't want to strain with my shoulder so I went in being very cautious. Still working out the form for things, like where to keep my elbows so they don't hit my knees. Felt kick-ass to be under the bar again, though.

One-armed dumbbell press:
100 x 5
110 x 5
100 x 8

Dumbbell rows:
Every dumbbell under 100 is unmarked, so I can't even record what I did, haha. I did one set of 30 with something, then did 100 for 8. I'm bending over with no bench, since I can't support myself with my arm.

One annoying quality is that the handles for my bar are too short to wrap my hands fully around. I only get around half a grip. I'm wondering if there were some detachable handles on it before that didn't come with it.


  1. Do you get warmed up before you squat, or do you just start at 150?Coach Rippetoe says you should always start with just the bar.
