Correction. During 11-18-2016, I also did some flyes after my overhead presses.
Did squats for 345 pounds for 2 reps. However, when I did my second rep, the bar hit the safety pins for a split second. It didn’t make any difference, really, but somehow I felt terrible about it.
I proceeded to my pushing exercises. It was terrible. My overhead pressing went down. Attempted 10 sets of 6 at 95 pounds. Last time I did these, I succeeded to do 6 reps on the first three sets. This time, I could only manage two sets of 6. The rest of the sets were all below 6.
And then I did flyes. Nothing special about them…
The squat didn’t stop bugging me, so I had to do it again. 345 pounds for 2 reps. This time, the bar didn’t hit the pins. I was relieved…
I now have 2 squat sessions every Saturday. For my first training session, I squatted 345 for 2 reps. I rested two hours, then did jump squats for 5 sets of 5 at 115 pounds.
I squatted 385 pounds. A new record. I had it video-recorded.
Did squats for 345 pounds for two reps. Nothing special.
Today is 11-30-2016
I squatted 345 pounds for two reps. It was harder than usual. I noticed that the barbell that I used (without the plates) was thicker than the other ones I used. I tried to see if I could assess whether or not the barbell was heavier. I put said barbell with one hand and another one with the other, and overhead pressed them at the same time, to see if there was any significant difference with the weight. They felt like they were the same, but who knows?
Anyway, I did my pulling exercises. I won’t bother posting the results. All I’m gonna say is that it was a bad workout day for me. No PRs and I may have gotten weaker. I used the thicker bar for my hang cleans and it was much harder to grip on. I switched to the thinner bar in the middle of my workout. I then did some lat pulldowns. Hopefully, this Friday, I’d do better with my pushing exercises.
