Default Saturday, 4/13

Weight Check: 185

Deadlift
8 x 135
4 x 225
2 x 315
1 x 365

10 x 275

Incline Bench
? x bar
? x 95
? x 145
4 x 195

3 x 10 x 135

Still taking it easy after the 2-week layoff.
Didn't have much DL strength today, although my stamina was pretty high. Felt like I could've done a handful of sets of 10 with 275. I can remember when 275 was my max and I never thought I'd get to 3 wheels. Even though the numbers aren't impressive, it just feels great to rip 10 easy reps with your old 1-RM.
On inclines, I only planned on doing 195 for 2 reps, but my spotter -- just some guy at the gym -- was saying "c'mon, get 4" during the set, so I couldn't let him down. I could've gotten 5, but I don't think I could've gotten 6. Back felt way better on inclines than on flat bench yesterday. Again, the 135 felt ridiculously easy, especially the first 5 reps of each set. Just not the same psychological challenge as pulling that sled.

Looks like my weight's holdin steady at 185! I can't believe I haven't ballooned up to 200 by now with everything I'm eating -- and I was still eating big during the layoff. Fat percentage isn't low, but it's not changing. Guess that goes to show how many calories you need when you train right. The bulk continues.
