Today

Deadlift-
135/225lbx3
275/315/365/405/445lbx1
405lb, 5x1 (90 second rest)

Everything felt great. Solid rep with 445lb. I am getting better at deadlifting now that I’m making it a focus.

Pull-up/cossack squat/side planks, planks, downward dogs-
4x5, 6x4/10x5/10 set of 30 second (30 second rest)

Grip and upper back tired.

And that was it for today.


#482

Today

Push-jerk-
135/155/175lbx3
195lbx1

Some small muscle in my left side quit the moment I started getting the bar overhead, so spent a bunch of time trying to stabilize.

Push-press-
165lbx3
135lb, 2x8

165lb not happening today

Power clean-
95/135/155lbx3
175lb, 3x2

Pretty confident that I can now full clean my bw(~181lb). will try it once the knee heals up.

Funny thing is that the knee felt worse on the push-jerks than the power cleans.

One arm DB bench-
25/35/45lbx6
35lb, 3x10

DB row-
100lbx3
90lb, 6x5

Lying leg raise into hip thrust-
7x5 I think

Grip dead on the rows.

DB curl-
20lb, 5x10


#483

Today

Deadlift-
135/225/275lbx3
335/375/415/455lbx1
225lb, 5x5 (paused, 90 second rest)

10lb PR. Solid heavy single.

Paused deadlifts are awesome. They’re seemingly improved my deadlift technique in just one week.

Surprising part is that I expected today to be bad since of all the grip-intensive stuff I did yesterday. Grip held fine.

Squat-
135/205lbx1

Tried this since my knee felt a lot better while during warm-up body squats. Nope, still no good. I guess I’ll just have to attempt another deadlift PR next week. 465lb here I come.

Pull-up/push-up/hanging leg raise/forward and reverse lunge-
5x4/5x5/5x4/5x5

Limited ROM on pull-up. Grip and upper back tired.

Mile treadmill jog/walk-
.42 speed for the jog, .25 jog/.25 walk/.25 jog/.25 walk

Saturday 7/14

Bench-
95/115/135/165lbx3
185lbx2
165lb, 5/4/3 (90 second rest)

Bench form piss-poor today. Shoulders felt horrible.

BB row-
95/115/135/185lbx5

Push-up-
5x10

Hand walk-out-
5x5

Today (7/16/18)

135/225/275/315/355/385lbx3
415lbx2
245lb, 5x5 (paused, 90 second rest, hook grip)

First rep of 415lb felt easy; felt a little light-headed on the second rep. Still, felt like a solid rep.

Mile treadmill jog/walk-
.44 speed for the jog, .25 jog/.25 walk/.25 jog/.25 walk
