Squats: The painful lower back pump showed up again, but it showed up later than usual and it wasn't as painful. This coincides with my cycling off beta-alanine (and contining taurine).
Week 32, Tuesday, 10-9-12
Bench, 290(1), 275(2), 260(3), 250(4), 240(5). 3rd time hitting 290.
DbRow 95 (15,14).
Dips BW+75(9,8), BW(11).
Chinups BW+15(7,6,4). Several fewer than last week.
I had to cut everything after bench short b/c I ran out of time. See below.
Bench: bench is taking too long. It's consuming half of my workout time and since I workout during my lunch (about an hour and fifteen minutes), I have to somehow cut this shorter. Not sure how. Ideas? Somehow cut the time it takes to reach the max or else cut the time it takes to get back down to 5 reps. Some help would be appreciated. Is supersetting chins and dips a workable idea?
