Supposed to be a rest day for me today but I decided to throw in another bench session. I tried reverse bands on the bench for the first time. Worked up to a strong triple with 275, two average bands were used. Threw in some forewarm curls as I'm noticing my right wrist is acting up a bit, and I know it's because of a broken arm when I was younger. Some wide grip chins, cable rows, BB rows and a bunch of core work. Good Saturday session.

bench day was today. I doubled up my explosive work, so I did 8 triples at 155 on floor press and did the same on the bench right after. Weight went up quick and I tried some form work to see if I could work some kinks out.

Strict MP yesterday and hit 8 reps at 135. That's a rep PR and I'm stoked on it.

Floor Press yesterday, worked up to 3 sets of doubles with 205. No one in the gym so I dropped back down to 195 for the last couple of sets. Bench rep PR with 155, hit 15. Strength is cool

Had a great bench day today for reps. Got up to 175 for 6 on incline. Supersetted close grip bench at 135x12 with tricep pushdowns for 25. Hit shoulders hard as well.

Squats today,
worked up to five sets of doubles at 2. Unannounced to me my blood sugar was stupdily high the whole workout and these felt heavier than normal. None the less, they all went up. Did a bunch of leg curls, reverse hypers, leg press and back raises to end the day off.

Finally broke my plateau and got a solid 500x1 DL today. No belt, just chalk. Considering the last time I hit that weight I was about 190-195, I'm super happy.

Honestly, I think I could hit 515 with some force. I was just happy with the 500 again. I have a mock meet coming up that I'll post the lifts for.
I hit 255x8 on squats today. and then 135x50 for oly squats.
Good day for lifting

It's been a while.
I'm working with smolov Jr on both my Squat and bench since those are my weakest lifts. Alternating each on off days to keep myself rested. I'm also working my way into the sub 198 class. There's only a 20 kg difference between the class qualifying totals and it makes more sense to put on some muscle and see if I can get some more weight throwing around.
Finished up my squats with 290 for 8 sets of 4. Last set was a triple. Didn't want to staple myself.

Felt pretty good. Did probably 4 sets of purely paused benching. Good session
