Geez, I'm so bad at keeping my log updated. DE squats did sone speedy bix squats with 330 bar weight and 5 chains per side. Think I did 6 doubles with that. And did some accessory work. Skipped de bench, was feeling over trained like bad and just needed to sleep in.

Tonights me work was deadlifts. Worked up to what I thought would be my opener, but I think I'll open a bit lighter.
135x10x2
225x3
315x3
Add suit
405x3
455x3
495x2
545miss, grip failed, added more chalk and true again without resting
545x1. Was a slow struggle, hope 600 is there on meet day.
For accessories I did a few sets of front squats, 4 sets to fail on pull ups, and 4 sets of hypers with a 53 lb kettlebell to make it not fun.
Still feelin confident about reaching my personal goal of a 1600+ total in single ply.

Today's squat session was balls.
Day 2 of using double blue bands on tensors. I think I have been going too hard for too long because today I hit a wall.

1band x3
2bandsx2
add centurion, straps down 1plate x2
1.25 x2x2
add ace straps down
2 plates x1
2 plates x2
straps up
2.25 xmiss
2.25 x1

Pretty pathetic, last week did 330+double blues for a double with straps down, this week can't do a single with straps up at 285 plus bands? Eff.

worked in a few raw sets of low box squats no belt with buffalo bar (add 5 lbs to bar weights listed)
135x5
185x5
225x5
275x5
275+4 chains total, x5
275+6 chains total x3
275+8 chains x2

that's all, done, finito. terrible day.

Tonight's bench session went something like this:

Warm ups
Sled pulling
135x10 close grip, 10 more standard grip, and 5 more wide grip
185x3
225x3
275x3 (sling shot)
315x2 (sling shot)
add phenom
365x3 (3 board)
385x2 (3 board)
405x2 (3 board)
425x2 (2 board)
445x1 (2 board) was supposed to get 2, but just wasn't feeling it, and didn't want to end on a miss.
365x6 (2 board) Probably could have gone a couple more reps, but I was told I had to get 6 so that's where I stopped, wrong attitude, yeah. Will I rep out to failure next time? Yeah.

Finished with some hammer curls in the 20 rep range, incline dumbbell tricep extensions (up to 40lbsx10), kroc rows up to 150x20 each hand, and dumbell standing shoulder press up to 60x10.

Pleasanton 4 in 1 meet:
Squat opener 628... Dumped
Redo good
670 missed for depth ... Nailed itthough
Bench opener 418, missed twice, dumped over my face, 3rd attempt good.
Deadlift opener 540 good
573 missed... Feet slipped about 3 inches caused me to hitch still lifted it though
573 again good.
Total: 1620, all my lifts were pr's so it was a good bad day.

I'll update training numbers soon

The flavor of the day for tonight's bench session was floor press on foam. Kept reps high. Trying to add muscle mass as I try to move up to 242's.

Floor press on foam:
135x10, 225x10, 245x5, 265x5, 275x5, 285x6 (went for max reps)
Accessory work I'm approaching generally in a dc style rep scheme working set is rest pause for 3 failures.
Kettle bell mil press: 54x10, 63x10, 70lb's 10,6,3 rp
Dead hang pull ups 50 reps: 10, 8, 3, 4, omg so hungry, 4, 3, 3, 4, 4, 3, 3, 2.
Done. Was planning on more, but eff it. I'm hungry and tired.

Rev band squat day today. Experimenting with combinations of gear. Pr'd with 865. Squatted it a bit high with ace brief under overkill suit, took it again with overkill brief and suit. Squatted lower, weight moved better. Guess I'll stick with ok/ok combination.

Ace/ok combo, monster mini reverse band. Ironwolf squat bar.
Brief:
475x2, 595x1
Add suit straps down
705x1
Straps up
815x1
Add knee wraps
865x1 cut high. Felt terrible.
Take off gear, urinate, put on ok brief and suit and knee wraps
865x1 felt better, took it lower. Good for today. Want 900 in next couple months. I find I squat about 90 less on the platform, so if I hit 900 rev band, I should be good for 800 come meet day.

No accessory work today. Squats beat me up.

Dear diary. Tonight mark bell called me fat an gay. Typical.

Chain suspended good mornings suck my nuts. Worked up to a triple with 425 bar weight and 5 chains per side. Top weight ~600lbs almost blew my head off. Then to be really stoopid I did some squat rep outs in my light weight oversized no pop metal pro briefs. I don't like squatting without briefs and I like to use the weak briefs to make it more challenging. I used these weak ass briefs for gm's and squats. Training went something like this:
GM's chain height too of belt. Couldn't find the tape measure so had to improvise.
Bar x a bunch
150x10, 240x5, 320x3 add briefs
410x3, add 4 chains total x3 +6 chains x3, +8 chains x3, +10 chains x3 done.

Squats: box height: 14.5 box+ 2 mats and soft foam. Maybe about 17.5 inches compressed.
325x10
415x10
505x10 (ouch)

Cable station ab pull downs
100x20, 120x20, 110x20

I have this bench issue with my brain where I simply have decided that 315 is more weight than I can bench, and I literally shut down with that weight in my hands. It is my number one priority this year to get my raw bench to 365, baby steps of course, have to make it past that 315 barrier first.

tonight's raw work was full range and 2 board triples. And not to sound like I'm complaining or making excuses, but I'm pretty sure the bench is crooked. All three of us lifting tonight had issues with the bar drifting to our left. either the bench is messed up or we had a plate on there that didn't weigh 45. no way 3 of us suck that bad with our left arms.

135x10
185x10
225xx5
2 board 275x3, 295x3, 315x0
3 board 315x2

I'm going to get over this and start driving my bench up, whatever it takes.

accessories went good, low incline dumbbell press 70x10, 80x10, 100x10 pretty sure that's a rep pr with that weight.

bent over reverse laters 15x10, 25x10, 30x10, 35x10

hammer curls sets of 10 25's, 35's, 45's, 55's, 65's x14

cable station tri extension 70x 20 or so, lost count. 90x10, 100x 10, 5, 4 rp.

Didn't bench on the 11th. I was spot/loading for our meet that day and that was enough work for the day.

Squats from 12/13

Tuesday was a long day and I was pretty drained when I got to the gym.

Did some parallel box squats for doubles.
raw
155x10, 245x5, 335x3,
Metal pro brief
335x2, 425x2, 475x2, 515x2, 565x2
Change to overkill brief
585x2, 605x2 done.

I started to do accessories and had nothing left. 295 felt really heavy on deadlifts, so I called it quits for the day.
