Lifts of significance: bench, squat, deadlift.
Before: 500 w/ straps
After: 500 w/o straps
There is a story behind everything right? Well here goes mine.
Bench: When I max’d out previously, I got simply crushed by 295 on my bench. So when I did it yesterday, I got so fucking nutso, and thought about horrible things (g/f trapped under a car type of shit), and I got under 295, and I just put it up like it was my job. I was fucking emotionally exhausted after that. I attempted 305 twice, and both times I got past lockout and had like 2" left, but I simply was too exhausted to get it up. I was kinda upset that I tried my weight that I got crushed because I knew I could of beat that before, but it was kinda a revenge type of thing.
This bench was w/o a shirt as well.
Squat: Opened with 315, then previous max, 405, then 500. I missed 500 at 3" from the bottom. I did it again, and missed about 5" up, then I lost my arch and I started to come forward so no good. I could of gotten it I really believe if I could of kept that damn arch. FUCK ! 500 was with the z-suit w/ straps up as well. I’ve NEVER ONCE used a suit, and this was the VERY first time using a suit, and I know I wasn’t getting that much out of it, but I used it anyways. Then I put up 485 like a champ. Was very pleased.
Deadlift: I was just fucking worn out from the squats but I was determined to get my previous max atleast w/o straps since I’ve been training my grip a lot w/ CoC grippers so I wanted to see if it helped out. So about 30 minutes after my last squat (I know, not that long of time, but I have a final tomorrow so I needed to get back to study for it, and I get my wisdom teeth pulled Friday, so I didn’t want to wait), I loaded up 500lbs, got pumped, and pulled. And you know what … my grip didn’t budge. I was so happy. I’m not that concerned with my deadlift right now, as I know it would be more, but I’ll be more concerned when I decide on which competition to enter in. Had my suit on here as well, as it didn’t seem to help one bit. didn’t matter.
So that was my week of max’n.
