day 1 - tuesday, october 18, 2011 - max effort lower

rack 1 pull; pins were setup below knee

- 545 x 1 @ 9RPE

- 545 x 1

good mornings; walked out
- 135 x 10
- 185 x 8, 8, 8
- 225 x 8

hamstring isolateral curl
- plate +10 x 10, 10, 8, 6 slow eccentrics

decline abs

Some ridiculous woman told me to "quiet down" when I was talking with a friend because it "bothers" her during her workout. To give a framework: She was on this rope pulley machine/video game while her "trainer" was yelling awesome tips such as to pull the rope "straight down" [the rope could ONLY be pulled up/down] and not to move the machine "side-to-side" [things tend to move when you pull on them] all the while making sex grunts.

SERIOUS WTF. Oh yeah, her trainer told her to do 40 reps because the program "says so." Fucking awesome.

day 3 - thursday, november 2, 2011 - squat day

Original plan was to do dynamic effort squatting but Yasin wanted to do a max effort free squat. I got some heavy volume in.

free squat
- 2 x 3 x 275
- 2 x 2 x 325
- 1 x 355 no belt; felt easy

sumo deadlift
- 315 x 3
- 405 x 3

calf raises
- 3 x 10 x plate

Looking back I guess I did not do much. I was planning to do a meet on December 17 but it was moved up to December 10. Won't be in town so can't do the meet!
