Saturday May 28th

Dumbbell Row
20x20
40x10
60x8
80x5
116x2x5
116x11 L
116x10 R


Had to use a hook grip, which felt very solid and made the sets easier. Added 2 reps to my l hand row, lost 1 with my r hand. My body is a whimsical thing, apparently.

Squats
45x10
95x10
135x5
185x5
225x3
275x5


Knees caved in on the last rep a decent amount, but I guess thats acceptable on intensity day, for now. I weighed my barbell and it actually weighs 41 pounds, so all my numbers here are actually 4 pounds less. I'm not going to start writing the actual amount though, lest I add the wrong amount of weight to the bar. All will be rectified when my texas power bar arrives. Regarding the knee caving, I guess this shows that dropping the weight and working back up with good form does not correct it.

Press
45x10
65x5
85x5
95x3
115x2x5
115x7


Damned if I know why I suck so bad at pressing. Felt like I was going through the motions during this exercise, its just so unresponsive I almost dont care about it anymore. Good pump after though.

Deadlift
135x5
185x5
225x5
275x3
325x2
380x5


DOH 325x2 easily. These went up slow but felt easy, mentally. I think a heavy deadlift is just going to do that for me, considering my VJ is like, 17 inches. So this was actually 375#. I'd like to take 10# jumps to 405/410.

Wide Stanced Box Squat
45x10
95x10
135x10


I expected to be weak on this movement, but wow. I'm going to do a set of these every friday. Very wide stance to work on adductor strength so my knees stop caving in.
