115x1x5
135x1x5
180x5
205x3
226x8 (BELT) PR!


Pushed it pretty hard, GM looking on last rep, but feels good man. Previous best was 235x5 so I'm calling this a PR.

Good Mornings
115x4x10


Ez. Hard valsalva on each set of 10 left me a little dizzy afterwards.

God I'm so fat! Busted a fucking nut getting that last rep, may have even been a half inch away from full completion.

Just got one from JumpUSA, humbled with only 15 pounds.

Thursday September 23rd

Deadlift
135x5
205x5
225x5
260x5
293x9 (BELT) PR!


Was positively determined to get a PR today, and almost killed myself to do it, but damnit I did it. Lost some extension on the 8th rep, fatigue causing a lazy set up I believe because the ninth was better. I'm not going to push myself that hard next week. The wrist roller caused some risidual fatigue during this work out that caused my hands to begin to open on 260 DOH.

Bench
142x7x5


Experimenting with getting leg drive.

Front Squat
120x5
135x5
152x8


Wrists hurt, got to remember to keep that rack position high on the ascent.

Ring Chins
7 3/4, 5, 4 PR!


Felt light and performed quick reps on the first set, was pretty sure I was going to get eight but alas, I did not. Got close though.
