I've been awful at updating this log the last few months.

Recap of 6OCT to 17 NOV - 100 Rep Challenge from this article:
Did most of what was said in the article minus prowler stuff, no prowler = no prowler stuff, substituted other conditioning on those days

Final numbers from 100 rep challenge:
BW on 06OCT, 2012 = 197
BW on 17NOV, 2012 = 190
DL - 295 x 6, 310 x 6, 325 x 4
press - 85 x 9. 90 x 10, 95 x 11
bench - 195 x 7, 210 x 3, 215 x 3
squat - 190 x 10, 200 x 12, 210 x 12

This challenge was well challenging, those 100 rep sets were sucked pretty bad, I found the lower body 100 rep days easier than the upper body 100 rep days by far. I used the loads recommended in the article and those were nearly too much on upper body days. I didn't push the main lifts too hard, got my number and left 2 to 4 reps in the tank most main lift days.
