Last Three days of lifting [Jun. 9th, 2012|05:35 pm]
The Dude

Deadlift 380
3/275, 3/315, 350 x 3

Incline Press 160
3/105, 3/130, 145 x 10

Wow.  So didn't have anything in the tank today.  Kinda funny how most of the time I lift better after a full day of work than on a day off.  Had bad acid reflux so deadlifts felt awful.  Was happy to get the Incline Presses in.  I've never pushed that lift before, it feels like it's doing something major for my shoulders, so we'll see where it goes.

EZ bar Curls 120 reps
Upright Rows 120 reps

Love these light days.  No coffee needed, they spike my appetite, and they don't wear me down.  I think if I could get 2-3 light sessions in a week, and 2 big sessions in, I'd be well on my way to filling out my frame.


Bench 240
3/170, 3/190, 215 x 3, 165 x 8

Squats 260
3/185, 3/210, 235 x 3

Benched for the first time today with a false grip, I kinda like it, going to take some getting used to though, bench felt really good.  I could've pushed the max reps on 165, but I knew I still had to squat, so I didn't want to overdo it and have nothing left in the tank.

Squats started out with bad hip pain, but on the last couple of sets, I focused on just pushing my hips back and falling down into the hole, and they were ultra smooth.  235 x 3 felt REAL light.  Could've had at least 5-6 on this.  Squats are climbing nicely, and 250 for reps is right around the corner.  This wasn't a PR, but it could've been had I pushed the reps.  These felt pain free and easy.

Here's what I was thinking, by the end of the summer, let's say September 1st, I want all of these to happen..
Bench 230 for 2
Squat 250 x 5
TB Deads 400 x 1
Incline Press 185 x 1

My lifts are all at all-time highs right now,  Just have to keep pushing for more, a rep here, 5Lb there, it's all going to add up over time.
