05.08.12

Squat: 3 sets of 1 with 425, then 2 sets of 5 with 375

^ Hepburn-style sessions for the competitive lifts this week, and possibly for the remainder of my training until the upcoming meet on June 9th.

Glute-Ham Raise: 2 sets of 12 with BW+11

Cybex Donkey Calf Raise: 2 sets of 22 with 280

Hanging Leg Raise: can't remember

One-Arm Deadlift (No Strap, No Belt): 1x1 with 266 (right and left), then failed 277 with each arm/hand

^ First time doing this without a strap since 2010. Don't remember my PR from that year.

- I used a hook grip, not the regular overhand method, but it's still tough, especially on the thumbs.



05.09.12

Bench Press, Paused: 3 sets of 1 with 245, then 3 sets of 5 with 195

^ Everything was paused, including the 5s.

- Not too difficult, and finished all three sets of ones and fives, so bumping this up to 250 and 200, next week.

One-Arm Dumbbell (~2.25" Thick Handle) Press/Jerk: 4,3,2 with 100 (right), and 3,3,3 with 90 (left)

Parallel-Bar Dip: 16,10 with BW+45

Handstand Push-Up: 1 set of 6 with BW (one-rep PR)

^ There were a few failed attempts before that PR set, mainly due to incorrect hand positioning.

Two Dumbbells Lateral Raise: 1 set of 11 with 40s

Two-Hands Dumbbell Standing Overhead Extension: 7,6,5 with 90

^ My triceps were becoming fried by this point, and wanted more reps, but it wasn't happening.



05.12.12

One-Arm Barbell Snatch: 1x1 with 100, right and left

^ I haven't done this particular variation of the snatch in years.

Deadlift: 3 sets of 1 with 530, then 1 set of 5 with 480

^ Simply brutal. Thought I was going to do at least 2 sets, maybe 3. Barely got through one.

One-Arm Deadlift (No Strap, No Belt): 1x1 with 309 (right), and 1x1 with 276 (left)

^ Big PRs, especially with my right arm/hand. My hook grip is getting stronger much quicker than I expected.

Romanian Deadlift: 2 sets of 5 with 355

Incline Bench Press: 2-3 sets of 5 with 180

Barbell Pendlay Row: 3 sets of 3 with 309

Close-Grip Pulldown: 2 sets of 6 with 220

Hanging Leg Raise: 1 set of 16 with BW

Cybex Donkey Calf Raise: 1 set of 16 with 290
