2016-12-31: Last lifts this year! Bring on the next!

Last lifts of the year.  Not sure what I'm doing program wise these days - I just seem to go lift what I want to lift.  Probably because I feel so weak after not lifting most of December.

Need to get myself an interesting program in 2017.  I think it's time to retire Stronglifts 5x5.   I really have exhausted that program after using it for more than 15 months.  If you've got any recommendations, leave a comment.  It would preferably be a program backed by a nice little app that is just as nice as the SL5x5 app. :-)

Todays Lifts

Barbell Squat

5x20kg
5x40kg
3x60kg
3x80kg
3x8x100kg
1x120kg
1x140kg
1x150kg
1x160kg

Not sure what to make of todays squats.  I felt weak, and decided that todays work set would be 3x8x100kg.  When finished with that I decided to go for a rep of 120.  T.hat felt easy, so 140 .. 150. and 160 also went up.  Turned out I wasn't as weak as I thought today.

Bench Press

20x20kg
5x40kg
3x60kg
3x80kg
6x100kg
2x5x100kg
10x80kg
12x80kg

I had hoped for more than 6 reps of 100kg.  Didn't happen.  The next two sets of 5 was really easy though.  Then didn't feel like asking for another spotter, so went for some easy sets of 80kg.

Barbell Row
