Late Night Session Tonight. I was tired all day. I spent a lot of time just relaxing and resting during the day. I still pushed myself to get the gym but energy was low so not my best:

Deadlifts

330 lbs - 5x

375 lbs - 3x

420 lbs - 1x. Argh. I knew this was going to be bad since the previous weights felt way heavier than usual. I probably could have squeezed out another but I didn't want to push too hard while tired because that is how injures happen. Just not my night. At least I got the required reps. Decided to stick to the lighter exercises for the rest of the session.  

1 Arm Preacher Machine Curls

Setting 4 + add on plate - 3 sets of 10x each arm

Lying Leg Raises in Static Crunch

3 sets of 20x

Standing Calf Raises on a step in Smith Machine

Body Weight + 185 lbs - 4 sets of 20x

Rear Laterals

25 lb DBs - 3 sets of 10x

 

Morning session tomorrow before I spend time with my family for fathers day.

Crazy quick session last night. I had to attend the annual meeting for my coop board last night and of course it was long winded so I didn't get a chance to eat dinner until like 9pm so I inhaled it and ran to the gym before it closed at 10pm. I only wanted to get Standing Overhead Press in since I have been sick the last couple days and was suppose to do it last week but couldn't. Happy that I hit a PR though considering how late I ate and got to the gym:

6/20/17 

Standing Overhead Press

160 lbs - 5x

185 lbs - 3x

205 lbs - 1x - PR

 

I attempted to hit right hand grippers when I got home but I didn't feel right during warm ups since I ate late and rushed through one exercise at the gym before it closed. I decided to stop grippers and wait for the weekend so I can concentrate on them and give it my all.

Think I forgot to put the video of my 194 super elite 30mm block close in the log:

I like to keep everything in the log to document the journey

Tonight's training:

Bench Press

195 lbs - 10 sets of triples, 90 seconds rest between sets

- still easy. Think a few more weeks of increasing the weight before this becomes difficult.

Incline Smith Machine Bench Press

210 lbs - 3 sets of 10x

Smith Machine Squats

270 lbs - 5x

310 lbs - 5x

345 lbs - 5x. Can't find my belt. If I had it I would have pushed for more reps. I think it's time to buy a new belt anyway. Mine was old and cheap. Now that I can actually squat and deadlift, I need to invest in a good belt.
