Measuring a one-repetition maximum and visiting my trainer's gym.

Huh, it's been almost two months since I last wrote something here.
These past few weeks have been quite rough and I didn't have much time
nor energy to write about what I was doing.

My deadlift one-repetition maximum of 152.5 and the gym logo in the
back. (2020-09-08)

However, something great happened today! A friend of mine that lives
in Rio Grande do Sul came to São Paulo and we gave [[https://www.instagram.com/ctpowergym/][CT. PowerGym]], my
[[https://www.instagram.com/marcio.powerlifting/][trainer's]] gym, a try. Fortunately, we both had our 1RM on the same
day. Now, being fair here, I didn't have much expectations. What is
there to be done? Lift weights the same way we do on all the other
gyms, isn't it? I had a pleasant surprise to discover that training on
a place design for your sport is way more fun than the alternative!

I interacted with a some athletes there and we even had a funny
discussion regarding the proper way to do the bracing movement. It was
quite an experience! Regarding my 1RM, these were my results:

| Movement    |    KG |
| Squat       |   160 |
| Bench Press |    75 |
| Deadlift    | 152.5 |
| Total       | 387.5 |

I'm quite happy with it, I even noticed that I reached my [[*New Year's Resolutions for 2023][squat goal
for 2023]]![fn:50] Considering that I [[*I'm now being coached by a Professional Powerlifter][started training in January]] and
couldn't even deadlift 50KG properly, this is a really good progress.
Hopefully, next year I'll be able to reach all the goals I had set
for 2023.

[fn:50] I am now aware that I stretched these goals **a lot**. 😁
