It was a shortened workout due to time contraints. Did crap on the deadlift--was supposed to go up to 180, as I did 175x2x5 last time, but couldn't lift 180 even once. I have lifted 185 before. So I went down to 175 and that was really hard. Then I went down to 155 and that was still hard.
So I was feeling totally in a slump. Since I got back from vacation my workout had been pretty bad. I was also feeling stressed and not sleeping as well as usual.
Then my parents came into town and I was unable to work out on Tues and Thurs as usual because I was with them. I also did not bike on Mon and Wed.
That brings me to today.
Squat: 80 x7, 155 x3/3/3
Barbell Bench Press: 45 x7, 90 x1/3/2
Push Press: 45 x7, 65 x3/3/3
Cable Row: 55 x7, 110 x5/4/4
Lat Pulldown: 55 x7, 105 x3/3/3
Today, I felt really good! I was very worried about squatting 155 because last time I tried it was really hard and I ended up not going low enough, and then I had the really bad deadlift day. After another 2 workouts missed, I thought squatting would suck, but I did the 155 nice and low and it felt good. I dunno what did it. I did eat a whole lot this week, because I ate out a lot with my parents. That's all I could think of, because my sleep was not much better.
It's pretty amazing how much those external things can affect one.
On bench, I messed up my set because I was actually lifting 92.5 when it should have been 90--I had an extra 2.5 on one side only, so it was also unbalanced. Once I fixed that, it got better for the other sets.
