Thanks, but that's hard to believe. You squat much more than me, and I'm not particularly good with reps.

Bench Press, Paused:
3 sets of 3 with 255 (belt)
^ Another PR for triples, like last week. I'll be testing my 1RM next week.
- I was forced to lift-off for myself because there wasn't anyone at the gym who I knew, but it still went well, and without too much difficulty. None of 'em were grinders.
-- After this, I didn't use the Sling Shot because a lift-off/spotter is crucial, and like I stated above, I didn't have anyone for that today.
Medium Incline Dumbbell Bench Press:
2 sets of 9 with 90s
One-Arm Grenade Pulldown:
2 sets of 8, each arm, with 90
JM Press w/ Fat Gripz:
2 sets of 7 with 135
^ I was reading that the FG is easier on the elbows, so I tried this new variation of the JMP with 'em on the bar. Definitely felt more comfortable and there was less irritation around the lateral epicondyle. I was able to use the same weight, and even got a slight PR (7,7 up from 7,6).
Kneeling Rollout w/ Short Bar:
3 sets of 5 with 60
3 sets of 3, each arm, with 70
Forward Sled Drag:
170, 125, 80, 45
^ Nothing too heavy. Went for longer distance than usual. Calves were burning even with these moderate and light weights.
Backward Sled Drag:
45 (sled + 10)
^ Finished the day with this variation, but very light.
- I'm adding some sled work for cardio, extra calf work, and recovery between squat & dead sessions.
