Stronglifts 5×5: Squats 225 lbs, Bench press 135 lbs

Hit 2 milestones today: 2 big plates on each side for squats, 1 big plate on each side for bench press.

I can now squat more than my body weight.
Oh, and I did 5 sets of each workout in the video.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
