I was doing lockouts for regular bench press in the rack for awhile. It was good for developing lockout strength, especially if I held it for a few extra seconds on my last rep. After doing them for a few months, not even every week but every other week, I started getting shooting pains through my elbows with anything past 400 lbs. and felt as though I was no longer developing strength, but just in a lot of pain. Great for locking out bigger weights, but just be mindful of that. Might be wise to only throw them in occasionally.

Really quick circuit style workout tonight. Little to no rest between everything, thus much less weight than normal and a lot more intensity.

Preacher Curls:
65x12, 75x8, 75x7, 65x10, 65x10

Bench Dips:
BWx40, BWx50, +35x20, +35x20, +45x25, +45x30, +45x30

Lying Tricep Press:
60x12, 80x12, 100x12

Hammer Curls:
25sx12, 30sx12, 25sx12

Tricep Rope Pushdown:
50x12, 70x8, 50x12

Dumbell Curls:
20sx12, 20sx12, 30sx12

Concentration Curls:
15x20 x 3 sets

Palms Down DB Wrist Curls Over Bench:
10sx20, 10sx20, 5sx20, 5sx20

Palms Up BB Wrist Curls Over Bench:
65x12, 65x12, 45x20, 45x20

Started off really strong, and then could barely do any weight with tricep press and hammer curls. This whole no rest thing is kicking my ass. I have done hammer curls with 50's before and tonight I struggled with 30's! Phew.

Changed up my workouts a little bit lately as I havent had time to make it in 4/5 days a week. Goal is to make it in atleast 3 days a week. Routine has turned into more of a full body type thing with compound lifts mostly dominating everything.

BB Incline Bench Press:
135x5
155x5
175x5
195x3
215x1
225x1
235xFAILED
175x5
175x10
175x10
175x10

Rack Deadlifts: (no chalk, no wrist wraps, no gloves...)
55x10
145x10
235x5
325x2
375x1
425x1
445x1
325x1
235x5

Sumo Rack Deadlifts: (very close grip)
235x5
235x5
235x5
235x20 burnout set

BB Squats:
45x10
135x10
185x10
235x5
135x10
225x5
275x1
325x1
225x5
135x8

Legs were not feeling great today. Hip Flexors were really sore during all sets. Forced myself to do the 325 and probably didnt make it all the way to parallel today.

Bench Dips:
BWx100 all in one set, had a few rest pauses of 1/2 seconds

Strict Barbell Curls:
75x8
75x8
75x8

Palms Up BB Wrist Curl Over Bench:
75x10
75x10
75x10

SS w/

Palms Down DB Wrist Curl Over Bench
10sx10
10sx10
10sx10

Whole workout was in a rotation format between the compound lifts almost like a giant set with short rest periods between.

Felt good to get multiple PR's in one workout.

Good work on your PR's Matt, nice going. Why do you think you failed with the 235 bench?

Hope you had a good weekend MF.
