I Tried Thinking of a Cool Name but Gave Up

Old log's dead. If you want to see it, you know how to use a mouse. Currently on my second stint of Cube.

December 17, 2013

225 lb clean, 340 lb HB pause squat, one ripped pair of sweatpants

Damn. Pour one out for my sweatpants in the grave.

Worked up to a 350 lb HB pause squat followed by 225 for a double on incline bench and 180x8 as a backdown set. Then I did 16 close, neutral grip chins and 30 minutes of cardio.

December 20, 2013 - “Rep Deadlift” (W6D3)

Went in wanting a 4x6 with 460 from a deficit w/ chains. Felt weak, but pressed on anyway. Once I got the the topweight, I did one single and realized how foolish this was. I went to eschew the deficit, but for whatever reason, my back decided to turn in. Because of this, I couldn’t get my body to fire with so much as a 365 lb conventional deadlift. Called it quits and went home. Frustrating.

It’s the high frequency, man. You’re not yet as adapted as you think. Also 460 is still a high percentage for you. You need to think in terms of that.

Probably. Might go back later and hit a lighter, higher rep topset just to get some type of work in.

Incline am not.

I used the form that you use. Strap up, then set up at the bar. I’d say it helps get into a safer position. Straps make shit feel better in general for some reason.
