Saturday June 11th
Weight felt real light today, very happy with this PR. Attempted 12 reps with my L hand but the 11th didn't really touch so I'm not counting it. Vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQSIByzuhlI
Those wide stance squats are really working, I felt so much stronger in regards to keeping my knees out. 255 went up so easy that I figured a 10 pound jump would be doable. 2 more weeks and I'm into PR zone. I have a good feeling about the next couple of months. I'm also sold on the idea of taking a deload on volume day every 4 weeks, as I'm fairly certain thats whats responsible for this bigger jump. Used the box today (lowered down to touch below parallel box). The internet form warriors of the world will continue to hate I'm sure, but if it keeps me injury free I'm happy.
Wide Stance Box Squat
More 10 pound jumps should be doable.
Bench Press - Paused
3 min rest for the first 5 sets, then down to 2 min for the rest.
Noice. I thought that since I wasn't deadlifting I might as well try for a max power clean. Tried to get 210 (BW) twice but it wouldn't rack. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Md9FsTvtAxY
