Deadlift Day

Ok, so I made some miscalculations today. I was supposed to lift 70%, 80%, and 90% of my assumed 1RM, but I accidentally calculated out 75%, 85%, and 95% instead.

Deadlift:

1x3x135 (warmup)
1x3x175
1x3x200
1x1x225 PR! I also forgot to use chalk, so even better! I have hit my deadlift goal for this year. Awesome!

Rack Pulls:

3x1x245

Thanks, guys, I'm way excited! It went up pretty smoothly, too. Definitely not a "grinder," as they say. I just couldn't quite get a second rep off the floor.

This week has gone pretty well so far.

Squat Day

Parallel Squat:

1x5x140
1x3x160
1x2x175

Oly Squats:

3x4x145

Lunges with 35 lb plate held overhead:

3 sets

Bench Day

Bench:

1x5x45 for a warm-up
1x5x80
1x3x95
1x2x105

I decided to do a pyramid down:

1x3x100
1x4x95
1x5x90
1x6x85
1x8x80

This pyramid was way tough. The last rep of every single set was a grinder. I felt like challenging myself though. It felt pretty good today.

BOR:

3x10x75

Haven't done those in a while. Felt a little awkward.

Push-Ups:

1x14
1x12
1x10

That's it so far, I'm looking forward to my next deadlift day either tonight or tomorrow! :D

Deadlift Day

Deadlift:

1x5x175
1x3x200
1x1x225

Rack Pulls:

3x1x255

Assisted Wide Grip Pull-Ups:

1x5
1x3
1x2

Farmer's Walks with a 45 lb plate in each hand:

3 sets

Plate Pinches with two 5lb plates:

3 sets

My bodyweight is down to 134 for some strange reason. It's good I haven't gained weight, but have managed to pump slightly more iron! It feels like I've weighed in around 135 for months. Weird that I haven't gained more.

Join the club, Adena - I was actually looking forward to being in the 230s normally again, and somehow I keep ending up falling back to 227-229. But, as long as we keep getting stronger, it's all good! :)

Well this week would normally be Deload Week, and it started out well enough. I managed to get in one day of deloading squats and then some solid cardio, but then I got a sore throat and I know if I go back to the gym it'll just prolong the sickness. I better not have strep! Oh well, my awesome immune system seems to be kicking this disease in the nads for now. Hopefully it's just a virus and I won't have to go to the doctor.
