Getting pretty tough, came close to failure on last set flexor side. I can barely type this. Going to cut back to once a week and see what happens.

335x8


The vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQzxfBSxo14. Lockout on last rep is questionable but I freeze framed it and it looked good enough for me to count. Stricter standards might not though. Anyways, a projected max of 424 means...



Bench
95x5
115x5
135x5
155x3
180x8x4


Easier then I thought it would be given last weeks performance. Getting sick of all this benching though, glad this cycle is almost over. Starting to get bicep tendon pain in L arm. Form is fine though, stable and moving in straight lines.

Front Squats
45x10
127x5

Friday October 29th

No benching today, bicep tendon feels sore. I've gotten 11 of 12 workouts in so I should still reap good rewards. Decided to test my strict press instead. I wont embarass myself by posting what I failed with but I did push press it a couple of times rather easily. What I'm going to do now is switch to the the texas method, run it for twelve or so weeks, set a pr or 2, and then switch back to 5/3/1 and start push pressing. The idea is to gradually acclimate my body to the decreasing volume so I dont lose gobs of strength.

Kroc Rows
25x10
40x25 L
40x30 R
60x8


Wow, I really suck at these. No wonder I have such baby lats. I'll continue doing these once a week on fridays in place of pull ups. Pull ups I'll just do one set so I dont end up completely sucking.

Felt strong and fired up today, everything went well. Form was good, weights were light, and joints felt great afterwards. Wore my TK knee sleeves today, I'm pretty sure they helped with my knees out. Since I hit 11 reps on my 5/3/1 day, I'm going to take a 20 pound jump next cycle. And I'm going to leave the good mornings out of my routine. They cause problems with my LB, and it could be coincidence but since I reduced volume on them my reps and weight PR's have improved considerably.

12 pounds out of that smolov, maybe a little more. I'm back on 5/3/1, I enjoy it more and allows for more recovery. Lets see if it works for me.

Im going to push the next 2 squat workouts hard, I want to make another 20 pound jump. That means getting 11 reps with 265. One thing I've come to realize as the reps have gotten higher is how much more I prefer going heavy.

Sled Drag
Around the block x 1 : 12:00 @ 4 plates


Walking facing forwards. Again, I prefer going heavy. I think the next couple of workouts I'll stack it as high as I can and walk backwards for short distances.
