Hey! This month marks two years of my fitness training with the coaching and guidance of my personal trainer Qunling Koay.
I’m particularly happy about today because the training paid off when I successfully smashed all of my best records from last year in a RM Test (or Repetition Math) – it basically is a fitness test to find out the heaviest weights you can lift in a single rep.
“Video Or It Didn’t Happen!” And yep, I was recorded when I gave my best today in all the three work outs.
RM TEST #1: SQUATS
I did Squats at 3 reps x 172 lbs; The theoretical 1 rep would be 182 lbs.
My previous records were 140 lbs (June 2012) and 134 lbs (Nov 2012).
RM TEST #2: DEAD LIFT
I did Dead Lifts at 1 rep x 249 lbs; one set before this I did 3 reps x 216 lbs.
My previous records were 210 lbs (June 2012) and 158 lbs (Nov 2012).
RM TEST #3: WIDE GRIP BENCH PRESS
I did wide grip Bench Press at 1 rep x 139 lbs; I was aiming for 2 but accomplished only one as you can see in the video.
My previous record was 117 lbs (Nov 2012).

My body weight as of today is 58KG (127 lbs) or vs 63.1 KG (June 2012).
So in spite of the drop in body weight I am able to lift heavier than before! Now you know why I feel superbly happy and confident 🙂
To think that just last July-August I was down with stomach issue that became a setback to both my daily routine and regular training.
And the RM Test result in last year November was pathetic when compared to June (as you can see from my stats mentioned above).
Today I conquered not only my previous records… but also my mental barrier!
I K.O’ed as soon as I got home and take a shower. 😛
But it was rest well earned.
Until the next time I smash my current record.
