Felt like crap today; drowsy and shaky for some reason.

 

Bench:

 

135 x 8

225 x 5

295 x 3

315 x 1

335 x 1

365 x 1

405 x 1

430 x miss, got arms to 90 degrees and held it there but couldn't push through it

365 x 2

315 x 5 close grip

 

Bad news here is that I went for a PR and missed it. Good news is that now I know that my baseline bench on a really off day is at least 405. 

 

Low rows:

 

150 x 20

210 x 15

210 x 16

210 x 10, dropset to 150 x 10

 

Lateral raises:

 

20 x 10

25 x 10

30 x 10

35 x 10

15 x 10

15 x 10

 

Rope pull-downs:

 

Don't remember the weights. Just did a bunch of heavy sets of 10 reps and focused on contraction at the end of the ROM.

That realization made me feel a bit better about the workout in general lol. Really wish I just stuck for the 5x5 plan for today and didn't try to max out.

I always get this burning sensation in my quads when I do those. I think they're dangerous.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yeah, you caught me lol.

Roger. But not today lol

 

 

 

Deads:

 

All beltless as usual

 

135 x 8

225 x 3

315 x 3

405 x 1

475 x 1

565 x 1 - PR First one in 3 years. 

405 x 5

315 x 5

 

Also, no lower back pain whatsoever after this. That's something that's been plaguing me for the past few years

 

 

Cardio for 30min afterwards. This was honestly harder than pulling 565. Really out of shape in this area.

Thanks, brah. It's also been a long time since I've hit a 5 rep set with 495. Felt like I had another 1-2 reps left but I decided to save my back for a PR attempt at some point in the next few days.
