Actually, it was 405
My friend John called me today when he came into town, asking if I'd be up for squatting. Since it was time, I figured I'd meet him as he's usually a good inspiration, not to mention I've set all my best PRs in his presence as I'm always motivated to do my best. Well, my original plan for 5x2 @ 350 went down in flames as he kept telling me during warmups that I'm "stronger than that" and that 400 should be no problem for me. Not one to want to burst my own bubble, I said I'd go for at least 375 today and if I got there, I'd see what happened. So I did some progressive doubles up to 365, then as he said, "Why waste time and effort?" and loaded me to what I thought was 375. I stepped in, went down, and came up fairly easily, only to realize after racking the weight that John had actually put 385 on the bar! Now, I was almost content to stop at that, but why not give it my all? So, I said to load it to 400, and again, he says not to waste time and just throw another plate on for 405. It is intimidating since my previous best was 370, but after a bit of rest I went in, set up, dropped to rock bottom, and although I almost lost it halfway up I managed to squeeze it out for success! It was a fight to the end, but a good one, and any day you can slap 35 lbs. on to your old PR weight is a good one.
Oh yeah, there was some benching in there as well, but we won't bother with that
