    congrats on the PR.

    Tomorrow's my 5/3/1 day and my final set of squats is 325. 5 reps would be a PR, 6 would make me a very happy man. I bench press too, and power clean, and try to beat last week's 3 sets of 2 chin-ups with 95 lbs.

    Today's workout was almost 90 minutes straight of hard Jiu Jitsu training with the Competition Team.

    That 6th rep is a tough cookie to swallow, gotta "really want it" as Jim would say.

    Hats off to you with 90min of rolling. Cant imagine. Good Luck with the squat!

    Good luck! The building we were in is the tallest in the city. I have to tell you, it was painful breathing. The stairwell was cold. My legs held up, but my lungs hurt like an SOB. I do have asthma, but it is controlled by medication. I must've coughed for twenty minutes after.

    I sort of tried to train for it using the Life Fitness Summit Trainer. I really don't have access to stairs, except the ones in my house.

    Have to give props to the firefighters who did it in full gear. One of whom did it twice without gear and then once with.

    Thanks for the well wishes. Discretion was the better part of valor on the squats. Rep 5 barely went up (still a new PR). An attempt at rep 6 would have been a semi-goodmorninged abomination for the sole benefit of my chiropractor and the ibuprofen conglomerates.

    Is it just me, or are the ladies missing in this thread? ;-)

    65x6, 60x7, 55x8 Push Press
    95 x 8 x 3 Barbell Lunge
    3 x 4 Handstand Push-Ups (partial ROM)
    160 x 8 x 3 Barbell Hip Thrust
    30 x 10 x 3 One-Arm DB Row

    Eating MORE (and more carbs) pre and post workout have made a SERIOUS difference in my PRs. My waist is still the same size yet I'm making PRs almost EVERY single workout now!

    Hey good on you then (both the discretion and the PR)! Discretion is still something I'm trying to learn. Two weeks in a row I've gone for that one more rep when I knew I shouldn't of, and I'm keeping my buddies in business because of it. I know gains aren't gonna be exactly linear at this point, but still trying damnit...

    I think that one more rep that you don't quite get might well be the most important rep of the set. Obviously with squats you have to figure in the safety aspect but with a spotter or power rack it should still be fine.

    Depends on how you fail. If, at the point of failure, you cannot maintain a rigid lumbar spine, an additional rep that would turn into an ugly rounded-back mess of a squat/goodmorning hybrid is not advisable. Ask me how I know.
