Thursday July 21st

Front Squats
45x10
95x5
115x5
135x3
185x2
220x3x3


Hurray, 100kg. Performed these with no mirror, which is the first time I've squatted without one in a long ass time. Felt a little wierd to strain without seeing myself.

Press
45x10
75x5
95x3
115x2
132.5x4




Repeating next week.

Barbell Curls
45x10
50x10


Was going to hit sets of 10 curls with minimal rest, but loading the 5 pound plates onto the bar for the third set, my left bicep cramped up and I couldn't extend my elbow past 90 degrees for a a few seconds, I was basically frozen. After multiple "Ohhh shit"s I realized I hadn't torn anything as I could still fully extend, supinate, pronate, and flex without any pain or weakness, but it was fawking scary, son. Fuck these anyway, I'll just hit the chins hard, its a more useful movement.

Neck Harness
10x20
20x20


And it broke. Strong fucking neck harness from APT.

Lying Tricep Extension
35x10
45x3x10


Some tricep work should get my bench going. I'm thinking about also throwing in a back off set of 10 - 5 rep close grip bench presses after volume and intensity day. Its helped my squat, why not my bench? First I'll stick to these tricep extensions and see how it effects recovery though.

Chins
20


Done in twenty minutes. I meant to take it easy but I was still straining on the last few singles.
