Thanks to everyone who posted in my log. First and foremost you guys are awesome and make me feel like a part of a community.
I haven't posted in about 2 weeks. I haven't missed a workout. I moved into a new house and haven't had internet at home, so that's kept me away from logging in the evenings.
Training has been, well, difficult. On this last cycle, I have missed reps on my top set every workout for my squat, bench, and overhead pressing. I did not deadlift this cycle due to a back injury and my Power clean, which i just started doing a cycle or 2 ago is progressing right along. I contribute a lot of the struggle to my weight loss and the associated weight loss diet.
And as far as the weight loss is concerned, I've stalled out. But Brute and BtB shared that stalling out is normal.
So that's the long end of the short. I am not going to "back post" the sessions I missed and accompanied videos. You aren't missing much, they are mostly fail videos.
The Butter Melter, Boy howdy!:
45x10,135x8 225x16 (Goal x20)
Overall Workout Grade: B
I attempted a 20 rep squat at 225. This was to participate in the 225 squat rep challenge. I only made it to 16. Last week I tried and only got 14, so I progressed. I'm a little disappointed though, i really thought I had 20 in me. It's easy to give up though when that bar is on your back and you are struggling for breath.
Front Squat felt solid.
Added 20lbs to the Good mornings. If you don't remember I am doing them high rep a la Bill Starr in an effort to rehab my lower back. Made a full 100 with 20lbs. I was pleased by that.
Finished with the Kirk Karwoski rows. Swolled up dem der trapzors.
I'll get a video of the squats up soon.
