Training Update September 21, 2012

Finally got that 365 hook grip deadlift. I ought to be able to motor on up to 405 in another month.


Squat 275 5x5

Press 155 5x5

RDL 215 3x5


Squat 250 2x5

Bench Press 205 3x5 only 1-2 min rest between work sets

Barbell Rows 155 3x5

(BW) 15/15/13/1 I started getting really bad chest pain during these sets. The brief discussion with Mark Rippetoe is here. I am dropping these and rows for a while. I'll start adding in barbell complexes in their place. I have wanted to do BB complexes for some time now. It will be cool.


Squat 305x5 Didn't feel too heavy. I think 315 will go up without a hitch next week.

Press 180x3 PR.

Deadlift 365x5 hook-grip PR. This wasn't that difficult. I think losing the paused squats and the one week layoff has got me primed to continue progressing in the deadlift. I think the paused squats were beneficial and certainly taught me how to grind hard out of the bottom but they were very tough to recover from.

Push-ups BWx40 Easier this week though the same number of reps.Chest hurt a little during these so I didn't push myself.
