thanks, Lobster!

Had a crap day yesterday. I blame chewy. ;)

Wasn't going to lift. He lit a fire under my ass, though. I should have known better. I always lift like crap the day after rugby games... Anyhow, oh well, I tried. :)

Deadlifts.
135 x 5
225 x 5
275 x 3
315 x f, f
295 x 1
300 x f
275 x 1.

Got mad and left. Didnt have it. I'm still coming for ya, chewy!

Thanks Rob, but I guess in this case "good" isn't "good enough". lol. Today was "good enough" though.

Deads and shrugs.

Deads
135 x 5
225 x 5
275 x 3
295 x 3
310 x 1
315 x1
325 x 1 (5lb pr. felt good. skipped the pr match)
330 x 1 (didn't feel good enough to try for another 10lb jump)
335 x 0
335 x 0
315 x 0 (gassed)
315 x 1 (lucky pull)
315 x 0
225 x 5, 10, 10

Full disclosure: both 335 attempts were done with straps. Didn't help though, apparently. Everything else was done strapless.

That's a good deadlift day. that's 30lbs of deadlift pr in a week and a half (2 weeks on thursday. I'm going to try to make it 50lbs of pr by then)

shrugs didn't go quite so well, but it's because I couldn't hold on to the damn bar, even with straps.
455 x 4, 5, 3, 4, 6.
still not terrible.

then rugby practice.

I don't know why I'm incapable of lifting on sundays... every other day is pretty ok. I think it might have something to do with it being later in the day...

Nice lift man, almost 150kg!

Are we doing this raw for the final lift? (no belts, straps, wraps, suits etc)

Also with bench, ass needs to stay on bench, flat feet?

Couldn't hang on. Hands are wrecked.

Got after it. Didnt feel like going. win for me. also, just realized that tomorrow is my last day to increase my 2 week deadlift pr jump. I'm driving to dallas after work on Thursday, so no gym for me that day... I'll have an hour before practice and that's it. Deads, Bench and shrugs, I reckon. Maybe no bench, because that actually gets used in my gym. unlike the power rack where I usually camp out..

Lol. Thanks to you both. Its sore, not hurt. And i'll be in dallas from tomorrow until monday night with only 1 day of rugby games, so i'll call that a 'rest week'. :)

more deads,

squatted 135 x 10 x 2 to warm up.

deads (back still sore, not sure how this was going to go.)
135 x 5
225 x 2
275 x 1
325 x 1
335 x 1 (5lb pr)
340 x 0
275 x 3, 5, 5, 5, 3
225 x 3, 3, 3, 3
Now I know what it's like to have a back like an old persons... With 2 or 3 sets to go, I went to fill up my water bottle. I couldn't bend over long enough to fill it, so I had to crouch down in front of the water cooler while my bottle filled up. Then I went and finished my sets. lol.

AND, i think I fucked up yesterday. My memory says that I went from 225, then added a 25 per side (275) then another 25 per side (325. NOT 315) and then a few smaller plates, but since I cannot confirm that (aside from being notoriously bad at math. lol) I will just take what I recorded. Not worried.

I'm HOPING that I can sneak away friday, sunday or monday before I leave and go set another deadlift PR at the Metroflex gym in Arlington (where Ronnie Coleman trains...) That would be amazing! I definitely want to go check that gym out. :)

I'll miss you guys for a few days, because I won't have updates, but I'll keep up on your logs while I'm gone. I want to see some reports of you fella's and bella's crushin' it!!!

Killed it in dallas. Won first game 25-0. Second game 51-0. Third game 31-0. Lost 12-0 in finals to home team. I was one of 3 people to play all off all 4 games. I was wrecked. It was awesome. Scored a try. Handed off another. Went on a defensive rampage for a few phases in the last game. We had about a half hour between the last 2 games. Not enough. And we had 18 people to their 25, but those are both excuses. I'm looking forward to a rematch at home...
That's the news. :)
