I am keeping this log as part of my curriculum for my personal training certification program. I’ve always wanted to start one and thought it would be highly appropriate now. Feel free to post any comments, positive or otherwise. Now, Without further ado…
11/30/09 - Back/Legs
Squat: 235lbs 3x5
My knee is still all fucked from last week so these weren’t too pleasant. The last set felt the best, but after I got home it got real stiff.
Deadlift: 325lbs x1
Went for a double but didn’t get the first. I normally do 1x5 but my back was especially stiff today so I called it quits after I hit 325. Felt great, though I know soon I’ll need to start practicing mixed grip since the bar is practically rolling out of my hands.
These sucked as usual since I am a pathetic weakling. The only time I’ve ever been able to rep out more than 10 consecutive reps in when I did them everyday. So I’m considering just doing them everyday as part of my warm-up.
Curls: 40lbs 3x10
I was pretty worn out at this point so I kind of flew through these as quickly as I could
Overall not a terrible day. I definitely plan to go lighter on the squats until my knee starts to heal up. I was mostly happy about hitting 325 on the deadlift after missing the first one. Still getting used to this four day split after doing Starting Strength.
