It werfs flammen.

Today's workout was one of those bread-and-butter workouts. I did exactly three lifts, but I did each of them a lot. The details:

5x5 (means 5 sets of 5 reps) low bar back squat at 165 lbs (75kg)
5x5 bench press @ 85# (38.5kg)
5x3 deadlifts @ 215# (97.5kg)

The demonstration videos feature a very nice shirtless guy. Most of the time I prefer to pick vids that show women doing the lifts, but I was dazzled by the chest and delts today.

The squat weight is starting to get up there, but it's not yet what I'd call respectable. I was dripping with sweat by the end of the fifth set, however: 25 reps is a lot. It demands endurance. The deadlift weight is, to be honest, very light for me. I can rip that up off the floor over and over. The deadlift is my lift! I have legs of doom!
