Thursday December 9th

Deadlift
135x5
205x5
265x3
305x3
340x9-10?


I counted ten but it felt like I missed a rep around 3-4. This session obviously went much better then last weeks. I was nervous as hell before lifting last week but felt fairly calm today.

Leg Curls
50x10
45x4x10


Doing these in anticipation of the GHR I'm buying next month. Got some hamstring ripping pain on the first set but discovered I could alleviate it by pointing my toes hard. Good to know because that was my fear for the GHR.

Monday December 13th

Squats
95x10
135x5
170x5
225x5
250x3
285x10


Fuuuuckin' A! I think the only reason I did ten was because I screwed up on the count. I counted 1-2-3-4-5, then thought it would be easier mentally to count down what I had left, so I counted 4-3-2-1-0 for ten instead of 9. And let me tell you, that was a ten rep max. Belt was on perfectly so my back still feels great. No pause squats today as I'm still feeling BBB deadlifts most of the time.

Leg Curls
50x2x10
55x1x10
60x2x10


60 across should be enough next time.

Thursday December 16th

Deadlift
135x5
205x5
255x3
280x5
320x3
355x0


Couldn't break 355 off the floor. I guess I'm at a point where I cant recover from deadlifts in a week. I'll try just doing the first two sets one week and then try for the full workout the next week.

Leg Curls
60x2x10


Got some hamstring ripping pain so I called it a day at 2 sets. Probably need more recovery.

Shrugs
135x10
185x2x10
225x2x10


Great, another exercise I suck at. I'll start doing these at the end of every DL workout.

Gripper Close
#1x3x0:10 R
#1x2x0:05 L
#1x1x0:10 L


Couldn't get the gripper fully closed on my left hand.

Saturday December 18th

Closed the CoC#1 13 times with my right hand and 5 with my left. PR by one rep with my left hand, I think a loss of a few reps with my left but then I couldn't close it one on thursday.

Monday December 20th

Squats
95x10
135x5
160x5

Motivation to squat was not there today so I've taken a deload week.

Leg Curls
60x5x10


Felt good today, no pain.

Shrugs
135x10
185x2x10
225x2x10
265x10


Was just in the mood for some shrugs. It will be interesting to see if my deadlifts on thursday are effected. I have a feeling that movement is mostly just lower back and hamstrings for me.
