We were up at my dad's last night for the season premiere of Monk - ate pizza, and then went out in the garage where he'd added bench supports to our squat stands. I worked up to a quick failure @ 207, then dropped the weight and worked back up to a pretty smooth single @ 200. I'm not sure if it just takes me a long time to get warmed up on bench, or I just suck at it
Anyway, fatigue from the benching was non-existent today, and training went well.Safe Press
Worked up to 4 @ 200 lbs. Pretty sweet, getting good leg drive and a solid second dip. Last week only managed 2 @ 198.Conan's Wheel
Switched to moving clockwise, and for whatever reason it was a lot harder that way
Still did okay, got two full revolutions with 510 lbs and one and a quarter with 600 lbs, but need to figure out why it's so much harder facing a different direction.Farmer's Walk
Up to 275/hand again. Made it the same distance as last time, but with a putdown mid way - so my grip got slightly worse, but I made a second pickup, which I couldn't do last week. Not bad, not good, lots more work to be done 18" Deadlift
Done in the rack. Got up to 1 @ 455, and then 6-7 failures with 495 - I could break it off the rack, but it just stalled a couple inches up. Need to get stronger. Mark made 605 and Keith made 635.
And that was it. I don't think I've mentioned it on here yet, but there's a raw powerlifting competition in town in September I'm probably going to enter. As a 100 kg Junior (20-23) lifter, I can set a state record in the deadlift, which will be cool
