Tuesday I was prepared for 300lbs for a double. I think I may have even dreamed about it. Once I got it… it only took a subtle “Keep going.” for me to do more.
Had to drive to NY to grab one of my mom’s dogs. Won’t get into specifics, but I ended up driving about 1500 miles over the course of 3 days.
Lots of good stuff this week. It was a heavy week and hit some good numbers with a good bit in the tank on everything. 8/11/14: Deadlift Deadlift 135×5 245×3 335×2 445×1 535×1 625×1 675x1x3 sets Video: https://www.
Monday Squats felt ok. I am happy that my previous PR is something that I can do any given week now. Paused squats suck! Why do back squats now have to feel worse, just because front squats are feeling better.
Had a pretty good week of training. Lots of PRs despite my diet being suboptimal. 8/4/14 Deadlift 135×3 245×3 335×2 445×1 535×1 615×1 655x2x2 sets 660×2 Video: https://www.youtube.
Saturday Was planning on some Yoke runs but instead did some circus dumbbell singles.
Thursday These didn’t feel right from the very beginning. My lower back just feels like someone is stabbing it with a knife… it actually felt best without a belt because I was able to stay tighter I guess. Oh well.
Monday I shouldn’t have adjusted my training percentages to my new 1RM from last week. I was simply not ready for the weight. If I compare the percentages to what I have been basing things off of then I am fine… but mentally…
I’ve been meaning to start posting my training and have finally gotten around to it.
Tuesday Right arm started hurting during warmups… grip was too weak on right side so continental cleans got a little ugly as the weight got heavier. I decided to call it after Axle because my arm was throbbing.
