6/15/13
second training session in over a month

Strict Press
45x9
135x7
165x4
195x1
225x1 – might actually be a PR at this bodyweight

Notes:

  1. This is probably the fastest that my pressing strength has recovered after a hiatus, so I’m optimistic.
  2. Something (most likely scar tissue) popped in the left column of my back while pressing 225 and the bar speed increased substantially. Weird, but it felt good.

Dumbbell Strict Press
Right/Left
45x8/45x8
65x3/65x3
80x2/80x2
95x1/95x1
105x2/105x2 – PR with both arms

Notes:

  1. Obviously different from pressing the circus dumbell. Greater ROM and thinner handle.
  2. I like them and will definitely keep doing them.

Seated BTN Press
(135x5)x2
(155x4)x2

[i]Notes[i]:

  1. Haven’t done these since high school lol. It’s funny that I was 165 pretty comfortably then. I’ll probably get a lot stronger on these.

Shrugs
used straps
315x8
405x8
495x8

Notes:

  1. Love a heavy stretch in my traps. Whole trapezius lit up.
  2. I can hold this much weight, but I prefer to use straps when training any back musculature.

Barbell Rows
used straps
135x12
185x12
225x12

[i]Notes[i]:

  1. Haven’t been able to do these comfortably for a long time, so I’m pleased.

Pec-deck Machine Flies
120x20/15/15/10 – shiiiiiiiii

Notes:

  1. I’ve really getting more into invoking the principle of being strong everywhere. Plus I want bigger pecs.
  2. These felt awesome. 'Nuff said.

Cable Curls
(105(I think)x10)x2

Notes:

  1. Gym was closing. Had to hurry.

Summation:
Good day. No grievances. Accomplished virtually everything I wanted to. Optimistic for more strength.

I got you. Never done those. What is the benefit of doing them standing?

Carries over well to strongman. Plus it’s cool.
