Ah... Great weekend in Charleston tailgating and hanging with all my soccer buddies. Good times.
Started today with pants fitting just fine and still weighing 186 despite a weekend of frivolity (Sticky Finger Ribs with Dry Rub totally the way to go!), so am not going to mess with diet anytime soon.
Monday, third week:
15x 155 Upped weight 20 pounds
The 14th and 15th reps were pretty humbling. First time I have actually struggled a bit with getting the bar moving off the bottom. But, felt good in the end. No extra set of 10 though as I'm not a masochist.
Cleans 80% Max:
1x10x 85 Hang Cleans
Feeling good with this lift now. Going to start adding reps to top set Friday.
6x 195 Upped weight 10 pounds and extra rep.
I wasn't concentrating and surprisingly struggled with the last rep at 185, so I got mad and told myself to stop at nothing less than 6 reps with 195. Got to 6 reps just fine, then fell apart on 7, barely got it racked. Should have told myself to do 8 apparently. Amazing how the mind works isn't it?
Extra set just because.
Great day. Loving this program.
