BP: 45x10, 95x5, 145x3, 185x2, 210x5,5,3, 195x3, 175x5, 155x7
UGH - this lift has been plaguing me - it's the only area in which I'm not making progress. I put a lot of thought into what systems to work on to correct this and how to modify my programming, but I'm going to try keeping it simple first and get through it the way I did my last BP wall - drop back the weight. Next bench workout I'll be back to 200x5x3 and I'll climb from there.

DB Rows: 55x5, 75x5, 95x3, 120x5 (sloppy), 110x8,2, 95x10

Walking

Overall crappy workout. I didn't feel energized. Poor sleep last night after out late drinking for Paddy's, as god intended.

Fri Mar 26

W/U Eliptical 5 mins

BP: 65x8, 105x5, 145x3, 175x2, 200x5,5,7, 185x5,4
Had dropped back to 200 to try to smash thru a 210 plateau I hit for a few weeks.

DB Rows: 75x5, 95x3, 110x10x3

Thick Bar Press: 45x5, 105x5x3
This felt very heavy after the other work

Walking


Weight: 224
This has been pretty steady for a while and might explain my glacial progress. I have vacation next week and will figure out if I want to ratchet up eating afterwords.

Sat Mar 27
Jumprope and D/U W/U

HPC: 45x5, 95x5, 115x5, 135x5

PC: 155x3, 175x2,2,2,2, 155x2,2,2
175's are getting more explosive.

DL: 225x5, 285x3, 335x2, 375x5 (PR!), 325x5, 295x5, 245x6
Felt I probably could have gotten 385x5 today, probably because of my unusually high energy level

Walking

Notes:
For some reason had a TON of energy today during and post-workout. Felt I could have done a lot more work.

Pretty horrendous eating last couple of days. No workout, but did about a 3.5 mile NEPA walk in the evening.
