Duff's log of loggyness
 
I thought that I would start a log to help track progression and hopefully get some input from some of the people on the forum. I follow a Westside conjugate type program that seems to be working for me right now. Here is yesterdays workout.
July1/12
Box squats just below parallel suit bottoms work sets.
315x3
365x3
405x1
435x1
455x1 pr

GHRs-I made a board that fits into the power rack and a heavy bag to do these and we use bands for assistance. I'll have to post a clip of it when I can, it is hard to explain but works great. 3x15 using purple band.
Planks-3x1min hold with a 45 on the back.

I train out of my garage with 6 other lifters, it's a pretty basic setup but it is better than the gym in town(very small town). I'm doing speed bench tonight I'll post up later.

Sounds like a good crew.

Congrats on the PR.

DE Bench-185+90chains-9x3
CG bench-5 to chest, 5to 1 Bd, 5to 2Bd,5to 3bd-245 done as 1 set
JM press-135x6, 185x6, 205x6
Side lateralx10, front raise x10, rear deltx10 done as circuitx3

Just wondering if anyone alternates their grip width during speed bench sets I usually go 3 sets index touching the smooth, 3 sets thumb away from the smooth, and then 3 sets with pinkys on the rings?

I do. I more out to in. I start middle finger on ring, then move to pinkie on ring, then close grips. Just works well for me this way.

Big weights and one of the best log titles ever.

Strong work man! I use to alternate grip for speedbench, starting wide working in.

Agree with Tann , great log title, and even better numbers :)

Thanks guys, I'm more of a bench only guy but my training partners make me do squats and deadlifts.

We have several bench-centric lifters here, including Roger Ryan and Gaspers. Both are monster benchers.

Right on, I'm looking at giving multi-ply shirts a whirl in the near future. I'm starting to research the different shirts out there, looking at a 2 or 3 layer phenom to try out.

DE Squats-box with bottoms SSB 255-9x2
Sumo pulls-245-9x1
Dimel deads-135-3x15
GHRs on my redneck rigged contraption-3x6-mini band

Nice light day, good speed trying to improve form.
