Thanks Dave! This summer for sure. 405 squat has been a dream of mine for like a year. And frankly two years ago, I never expected to ever make it to a 400 lb squat. Funny how things change as you go along.
Thanks, JB! I'm pretty sure I want to do the Cube next after the meet in April. We'll see. I also want to add in some more fun stuff this summer like cleans and strongman stuff. I've been itching to do that stuff. The goal has always been to bring up my powerlift numbers then branch out into other lifting activities.
Good day today, but dammit, just missed 290 on the bench. I mean I had it, but a shitty liftoff doomed it. Crap. I'll get it next time though!
JBPP week 9
warmups: arm and shoulder stuff
1x 245, 260, 275 (no trouble)
0x 290 (Bitter!)
High Pin Press, just below 2 board height:
3x 235, 245, 250, 245, 235 (I was on fumes by the end, last rep was fugly)
Lat Pulldowns: 5x 15x 150
A lot of arm and chest stretching and some easy curls thrown in too.
0x 290, Language warning!:
Hit the pin on the liftoff, so it took too long to lower and I couldn't stay tight that long once it stalled.
I'll get it next time for sure. At least that much weight in my hands didn't feel too out of place.
And JB, don't know if this means anything, but my biceps are the most sore muscle immediately afterward.
Easy deadlifts, some massive shrugs and high rep rows tomorrow, then it's week 10 on Monday. I'm looking forward to an "easier" squat day. Been a while since I had one of those!
Bench, I'm not worried about. I always recover fast from benching.
