- Squats: 315*1 335*1 355*1 365*1 375*1 385*X 385*1
This went well, record is 400 @ 231, I was 205.5 here still for the 385, the former was a 1.73x BW squat, this one is 1.87. Working towards 2x still. No extra exercises here. Saturday I'm doing O-Lift PR attempts. And now for the best story I'll probably ever get out of the gym:
So I had 365 on the bar and I went to go get a drink from the fountain before doing the set. I come back not 30 seconds later and some dude is unloading the bar. I say "hey dude, still using that". Unfortunately he has headphones on and can't hear me. Even more unfortunately he's decided to unload the 3 45s and the 25 from one side of the bar without taking any plates off the other. He takes the last 45 off and the bar flies up narrowly missing his face, and dumping the weight off the other side. Loud noise, people staring, etc. He looks at me finally and I say "you can't take all the plates off one side. Also I'm still in here. I need you to rerack the bar and load the weight back up for me".
Then I walk away and start talking to one of my friends there, we're kind of laughing, didn't want to be too mean. So we're looking at this guy, and he puts the empty bar back on the rack and starts loading weight back on it. On one side. I say to my friend "There's no fucking way....no. fucking. way". Yup. one 45.....two 45s....3 45s. At this point my friend and I are both shouting, but again dude's wearing headphones. He starts to slide the 25 onto the bar and me and my friend are screaming at him and the dude looks over to us, as he pushes the 25 on...and the bar dumps and pegs him in the chest. Fortunately a trainer was there and she jumps on the unweighted side and throws some weight on to counterbalance it. To the dude's credit he stuck around in another corner of the weight room working out for a while. In retrospect I kind of feel bad for being blunt with him after he dumped the bar the first time. If I had known he would've done it a second time I probably would've cut him a break. Poor dude's not having a good day.
