Wow, a full week's worth of training and no logging.... tsc... tsc...

Anyhow, this is what I did last week:

Tuesday
Warmup: DROM

Back Squat: Build to 235# then
5, 2... Dang! Miserable day

I had spent a full week without doing any squatting. Most I'd do would be some hip related movements (see last week's worth of logs). I was expecting to be nice and strong here. Other than the fact that I was attempting a set every 2:00, I really don't know what happened. Quit straight off after second set

Wednesday
Warmup: DROM

Press: Build to 145#, then
5, 5, 4, 3, 2

Then...
40# Weighted Chin-Ups
5, 5, 4, 4, 3

Then 4 sets of 11 Ab-rollers

Note: all day I was still following one set every 2:00

Thursday: Rest

Friday
Warmup: DROM

Back Squat: Build to 215#, then
5, 5, 5, 5, 3

I wussed out at on the last set, mainly because I wanted an excuse to do 215# again on my next workout

Saturday:
Bench Press
255#, 5, 4, 3, 3, 2

Then 45:00 of rowing

Easier said than done.

I did realize one of the reasons I might be so inconsistent with the weight: Apparently, each time I squat, I'm able to go deeper, notably moreso the last time I did back squa with 215#, just fell in the hole, caught the bounce, and was consistently getting stuck at parallel. I think once I'm over this, I'll be stacking on some weight.

I've got a whole week's worth of training I haven't been logging.

In essence, I trained

Sunday:
DROM, then

5 rounds for time of:
- 10 x 115# SDHP
- 10 x Ring Dips
- Run 400m

My time... 24:06 (new PR, first sub-25)

Monday
DROM, plenty of squat stretching (calves and elboeing out the knees getting into full squat depth)

Back Squat
1 x 5 @ 95#
1 x 5 @ 135#
1 x 3 @ 185#

215#
5, 4, 3... (calling it a day, lots of trouble getting out of the hole. In fact, on my second set, I only did 2, racked it, got ticked off, pulled it out again, did 2 more... same thing, trouble getting out of the hole). I have some footage of me warming up, depth was pretty awesom... unfortunately, didn't get any of the workout (battery died)

Tuesday
DROM

Bench Press
1 x 8 @ 115#
1 x 5 @ 155#
1 x 4 @ 185#
1 x 3 @ 225#
5 x 5 @ 255# (graduating to 265# on next workout HUZZAH!!!)

Inclined Bench Press... as quickly as possible, swapping weight with training partner and going immediately into the set

185#
5, 3, 4, 3 (one set every 2 minutes or less, estimated)
