Default Tuesday, 2/19

4 hrs. sleep last night + a long work day = considered taking off today. Only problem is that I can't get in to the gym tomorrow, so I figured anything I do today is better than missing 2 days in a row.

Squat= 12,200 lbs.*

10 x bar
8 x 135
4 x 225
2 x 275 (easy -- could've gotten 4)

a**) 8 x 5 x 225
b) 2 x 10 x 160

Bench = 6,775 lbs.

20 x bar
8 x 115
4 x 185
2 x 210

a***) 5 x 185
b) 10 x 135/120/120/105/105

*Volume's up quite a bit from last time. Despite being sleepy today, I felt very strong on squats. Decided to capitalize and do more than I originally planned to. I think the decreased volume on DL is paying off -- I'm able to lift heavier and with higher volume on back squat day, which is what I want.

**Easy. 2 min. rests. Could've done these sets of 5 all day.

***Did 4 x 5 x 185 last bench day. Was planning on at least 6 x 5 today, but after that 1 set, I knew I didn't have it and that it wasn't worth grinding. I think sleep deprivation + the big squat workout just completely drained me. Also, I worked from 5:00 am to 3:00 pm today. But I couldn't just leave it at that 1 crappy set -- my muscles and joints felt fine, I just had no energy or stamina to push any appreciable weight. Decided on some sets of 10; could've done those 105s all day, but what's the point? Better to just keep it light and get lots of rest. Probably go to bed at 8:00 pm tonight, and like I said, tomorrow's an off day.
