April 12, 2007 - Testing week
Core Performance Movement Prep
Ok so I lost my notebook because I left it on top of my car when I left the gym....oops. Here is what I can recall.
pushups - 30
L-sit - 18 seconds
Bench Press - 105 x 4, 105 x 4, 160 x 3, 200 x 2, 210 x 1, 225 x 1, 240 x 1, 250 x 1
Military Press - 45 x 5, 95 x 3, 135 x 1, 145 x 1, 155 x 1, 165 x 1, 175 x 0
cable curl - 70 x 12, 70 x 12, 70 x 10
Ring dips - 17, 4, 9
ring pushups - 10, 8
-Bench Press - Warmed up using Charles Poliquins warmup method, I don't know if I really care for it too much though. This is about 10-15's less than my latest bench PR. Then again I did take off 6 weeks of all almost all pushing. So that amount of decline isn't bad (at least for me).
military press- went back to my old way of testing PR's, 165 isn't too bad
-Ring Dips - I think I cheated myself on the first set by not getting full extension, around 10 I was thinking this seems to be way too easy, so I slowed it down a little.
-Ring pushups - ok so I should have realized my pushing ability was toast but I decided to try it anyway.
