Wednesday November 16th

Bench Press
45x10
95x5
135x5
185x5
225x7
215x5x3


That is what I'm talking about! Next week, 8! My triceps were feeling a little tired though so I just did 5 triples at 215 to finish the workout. I wonder if I would have been better off just ending it after 225x7.

Good Mornings
45x5
95x3
135x3
185x3
225x1
255x1
285x1
245x6x1


Didn't feel like doing a bunch of singles, slowly working up to a max, so I just rushed the max a bit and hit the back off stuff harder. Couldn't find my camera so I have no way of knowing if this was even a PR since the set up could have been different. Grinded it out like crazy though. Same with the 6 singles. Next wednesday I'll follow an identical work up as last week and try and hit 290.

BB Row
135x5
175x5
205x3
225x3
235x3
245x3
255x3
265x3
270x5
230x10


I felt stronger but it's hard to quantify an actual improvement with this exercise.

Found my camera, it was right on the window sill where I left it..

Wide Stance Box Squat
260x10


Tied my all time best.

Weighed 238 wearing a t-shirt, underpants, and having drunk about 2 liters of water. Diet wise I'm actually going to do 3000 cals on training days and 3500 on rest days. Training blunts my appetite and its easy for me to fast/eat sparingly, but the next day I wake up really hungry. Once or twice a week I'll just eat normally (surplus lol) depending on how hungry I am and how hard the workout was the day before.

Conditioning tomorrow.
