Tuesday (Squat and Press)
Did big jumps up to 280 for a fast single, left hip felt a little tight, stretched it ou in between sets, doing singles of 280, 285, 290, 280, 285. 290 was probably the fastest set, so I feel good going into next month.
On the Press, sticking with 125, got six reps for my first 3 sets, dropped it to 5 for my fourth set, then did triples for my remaining 3 sets. Felt funny because I was able to do all seven sets with five reps last week. I’ll still make the 10 lb jump to 135 next week, but I may progress the press a little slower.
Finished up with DB swings for 4 sets of 18, this felt surprisingly easy, and the chest supported row for 4 sets of 12 also went smoothly until the last set. definitely ready to bump up the weight on these.
Thursday (Decline Bench and Front Squat)
Decline Bench: Worked up to 180, all close grip, got 6 reps on the first four sets, probably could have gotten 6 for the 5th set, but decided to leave it in the tank. ready for next months jump.
Front Squat: Triples with 165 felt light, bumped up to 170 for a few sets. Got all 7 sets pretty easily.
Farmer walks weren’t too bad today, think I’m going to keep the weight the same on these for awhile to build up endurance.
Got 18 pull-ups on my first set post farmer walks, so grip endurance is increasing, still topped out at just over 30 by my 4th set, so need to keep working on these before adding weight.
