Week 12 – Pectoral Flies for the Cutie Pies

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.

Week 11 – Progess Continues

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.

Squats and Pressing. Good way to start the week.

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.

Week 10 of Training

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.

Rained out… but the training must go on!

Saturday Was planning on some Yoke runs but instead did some circus dumbbell singles.

Deadlift still not right… but overhead feeling good.

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.

This weeks training is starting off heavy!

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…

First Post – Past Couple Days of Training

I’ve been meaning to start posting my training and have finally gotten around to it.

Axle feeling good… arm not so much.

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.

Front Squats for a new PR!

Monday Wanted to try to get 350lbs on front squat today… really bad. Had a little friendly competition with Keith and Steve and so I was motivated! Happy that I am feeling more comfortable with front squats…
