Bench Day

Bench:

1x5x85
1x3x95
1x6x105 :o :D

I ate a lot of spaghetti today. Apparently, that's just what I needed.

Bench for volume:

1x12x65
4x10x65

Bench with bands:

3x10x45

Push-Ups:

3x10

Dips:

1x8
2x5

The only downside to this is, I weighed in at 136. So, I have to gain approximately five more pounds to lift five more pounds? Something about that doesn't seem quite right...

Ah well, squat day tonight, and then I'll begin Deload Week and try to fit in lots of cardio and healthy foods, and less nuts...We'll see how it goes!

Squat Day

Squats:

1x5x140
1x3x160
1x1x175

I was hoping for a few more reps of that last set, but I just didn't have it in me. At least I tried and failed the second rep. I think it's due to my lazy weekend when I slept in and only ate twice a day.

Box Squats:

3x12x115

Lunges with 35 lb plate

Leg Press:

1x12x300
2x12x320

Leg Curl:

1x12x80
2x10x95

Deload Week

Deload week is when you intentionally lift about half of what you normally can, to give the ol' muscles a bit of a break.

SOHP:

1x5x30
1x5x40
1x5x45

Deadlift:

1x5x90
1x5x110
1x5x130

Bench:

1x5x45
1x5x55
1x5x65

Squat:

1x5x75
1x5x95
1x5x115

Plus, I did more cardio than usual. I managed to run outside a few times, between thunderstorms. Mostly I had to use the cardio equipment at the gym, though. Tonight I plan to do some HIIT after work, and then tomorrow, back to the old grind.

Deadlift Day

Deadlift:

1x5x145
1x5x170
1x6x190

Good Mornings:

1x16x115
2x16x135

Rack Pulls:

1x10x135
3x1x225

I have actually never done rack pulls before, so I really didn't know what I was doing. I had the mistaken impression that they were easier than deadlifts, so you could do more weight than you usually deadlifted. Actually, they felt about the same. I think it was still useful for me to do some heavy singles, and just get used to feeling that heavy of a weight, hold it for a few seconds, and let it down. If anybody else has some useful insight here, feel free to comment!

Farmer's Walks with 45 lb plates

Plate pinches with 5 lb plates

Various planks
