@littlesleeper: I appreciate it, man! I know what you mean about addicting. I've already been considering either building or buying a power rack...but I'm going to hold off for a while at least.
Today was the "B" workout. Back was feeling a little tight this morning due to a good bit of outdoor work yesterday so I replaced traditional deadlifts with hex-bar deads.
Hex-bar Deadlift - 220 3x5
Pull-ups - 32 in ten minutes
OHP - 90 2x10, 1x9 (barely missed last rep)
Bicep curl with EZ bar - 55 2x12
Skull crushers with EZ bar - 55 1x12, 1x10
All in all, I felt good today. However, I am beginning to realize that I simply do not like hex-bar deads. I bought the hex-bar specifically for an occasional substitute for standard deadlifts for both a change of pace and days when my lower back is feeling tight. Hex-bar deads just don't feel stable. The standard deadlift has "checks" that let me know my form is good. Bar against shins, push from the heels, bar up legs, over knees, hips forward as bar rolls up thighs. I don't have those cues with the hex-bar. It does succeed in taking pressure off of my lower back though.
It's more accurate to say a mixture of pull-ups and chin-ups. My pull-ups are really weak. My elbows tend to want to pull forward, ahead of my body, to let the biceps take up the slack. Lots of room for improvement with pull-ups.
I'm satisfied with my OHP numbers. Last session with the same weight I managed 1x10, 1x8, 1x6. Today was an improvement over that, which is all I want from session to session even if it is one extra measly rep.
I weighed 180 on the nose this morning. From about June (possibly May...can't really recall when I started actively trying to gain) up until now, I've gained 25 pounds. My lifts have improved all around too. As far as my weight goes, a lot of it is fat to be sure, but in my opinion (and the wife's) I'm looking much better. She wants me to go bear-mode, but I'm not sure about all that. Ha. I'm hoping that by February 2016 I will have hit 200 or a bit more. After that I'm going to get my BF% back down to something reasonable and go from there.
