I really screwed the pooch on the deadlift today. I would go as far as to say I don't deserve any gains from the pulls I did today. I got an SOS from the office to come back immediately, but I was just setting up the bar. I went ahead and rushed through my deads. Piss poor form, more of a good morning/RDL right from the start. Only enough rest between sets to add weight to the bar. Work set was terrible, and I walked out of there with my spinal erectors doing hula hoops around my spine. Tomorrow is the rest day.

I also accidentally jumped 10lbs instead of 5lbs on the bench today. It worked out though. I really felt like I smashed the 260x5x3. I'm REALLY stoked to get to the end of the cycle to see if I'm ready for that 300 bench. I'm closer to that than the 400 squat for sure. Hell, at this rate, I might make it to a raw 350 bench before a 400 squat. Kinda crazy.

My Training Log

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

Top Gym lifts:
Squat: 415lbs
Deads: 440lbs
Bench: 315lbs
