Figured I'd better start one of these up again. Last one went to pot after some things came up.

Grip (this was actually from yesterday):


BBE Attempts, all missed by 1mm or less :angry:, + some BFNs

#3, 2 sets of reps to failure, both hands, + ~10 BFNs
#3, 2 or 3 5-10sec overcrushes, both hands
Finished grippers up with some paused-set speed reps on the remounted 250 (~2.3),
just focusing on slamming the positive.

After that did something with the TTK...don't remember what it was, though.


I remounted and filed my hard 300 (it's a brick now), so I'm hoping a week or two of BTR-BFNs
with this will finish up that last mm on the BBE.

And this is from today:

Monday

Barbell Curls:

134lb x 3 sets of 5

Full Hammer Curls on triceps-bar (drop-sets):

Set 1 - 92lb, 86lb, 80lb x 8
Set 2 - 92lb, 86lb, 80lb x 8

Strict Barbell 21s (as burners)

1 set of 73lb

Bench Press:

Set 1 - 221 x 3, 221 x 2, 227 x 1
Set 2 - 227 x 3, 233 x 2, 239 x 1
Set 3 - 239 x 3, 239 x 2, 259 x 1

259 felt good enough to rep but, you know...that no-spotter thing :D

Incline DB Press:

70lb x 4 sets x 10

Yeah, I've really been pretty lazy with bending lately. I just can't finish off that stupid 5 x 5/16 G2...
Guess I'd better get to work :D I'll start it up again after my MM2.

You won't have any trouble with the MM2, it's not a big jump from the MM1.

HKT should be insane ... "BL" and "triangule" were the easier 5/16" i ever tried.

BJC and 307 sby were hard in my book.

i believe g8's would be perfect for u Frank!
why dont u give it a try??
