Yeah. We switched today to a 2.5lb increment with fractional plates. We can add as little as 0.5lbs a workout with those to keep the linear progress.
Alrighty then... update
Last two workouts...
Squat Wed: 3x5 @ 130lbs, she felt weak. Decided to deload and work on form (knees wanting to come together - we can fix this)
Squat Fri: 3x5 @ 115lbs, good.
Press: email@example.com - we are using our fractional plates on this lift and going up 2.5lbs for her
Dead: 1x5@150lb - looked great!
Clean: 3x5 @70lbs
Squat wed: 3x5 @115lbs
Squat fri: 3x5@125lbs - did a few good mornings at the top. need to fix monday.
Bench: 3x5@150lbs - still very easy
Press: 3x5@100lbs. I soooooooooooo want 135!
Dead: 1x5@245lbs. This was a bit harder than I expected. But I'll get my 300 soon enough
Clean: 3x5@90lbs. I actually hit myself in the nose with the bar :/ on the first rep of set 1. No real damage!
