Good deal, nothing like an injury to slow progress down!

Day 2 of Week 6

Heavy Bench today: 160 for a triple. Funny thing, but I knew this would happen, my grip switched back to narrow. Still not as narrow as before though. I figured when I got back up to heavier weights my form would switch back to it's old self, and it did. Now isn't the time to switch my form up, so I will just try to be as comfortable as I can.

Deadlifts: Only pulling 190 for 3x3 so I wasn't struggiling. My stance opened up and I feel so much quicker, and solid.

Squats: Also not lifting big but just trying to keep a 3x3 going. No changes in my form. Squats feel solid, but the weight is light. Next workout is heavy squats so I will be able to see if my work has paid off.

Thanks Elite. The 3x3 program is a different breed than what I'm use to, but now I think I will miss it when it's gone.

Week 6: Done

Third and last day of week six is a wrap. Heavy squats. Felt heavy today. Probably because I trimmed my beard. I have never worn a belt when squatting, but I might try it out. I felt my lower back trying give way. (which is a reason why I miss assistance work) I need to work more on my posterior chain to get the numbers I want.

I haven't been using any pre w/o since I started this last phase. In and out in a half hour or less, so no real need plus I like cycling off whenever I can. The fewer scoops the better.

Deadlifts were nice today. Kept my stance open and I got the bar up quicker, with less pressure on my lower back. ...Side note... I have noticed that my form has opened up with everyone of my lifts.

Bench press. Really wore me out today. I like where my feet are, and my grip is moderate. Started using long pauses at the bottom and just blasting it to lockout. Weight isn't heavy so I might as well have some fun with it.

This whole Christmas deal is going to interfere with my gym schedule. I am going to have to figure something out so I don't mess up my routine too much. Hard to believe this is almost over with.

Thanks BtB. Not big on Christmas, but I will enjoy the extra day off. Too bad the gym is closed.

Week 7 Day 1:

Heavy Deads - Today I pulled 280 for three singles.(My goal for the end of the year is 300.) Never pulled that much before, so I am proud. Glad I used my belt today. The first two went great, but the last one was off. I had gathered a bit of an audience and that knocked my focus. The last one got out in front of me and I almost fell over, but I threw my head back and got the lockout.

Didn't eat anything, but a banana today so the rest of my workout was tough. A bit upset at myself for forgetting to eat more, but I made it through the workout.

Bench went well. Noticed my leg drive was diminishing with each rep, but I chocked it up to the weights being light.

Squats took a while to finish up. Lack of calories is my first guess. Not sure why I am having such an issue with squats these past few weeks. I have tried moving them to the first thing I do to see if I was just tired, but to tell the truth I just don't think I am strong enough in my ham-bones, and gluties.

Day 2 of Week 7

Heavy Bench today: Man, was it heavy today. I was only pushing 175 (my goal is 200 for the end of the year). I'm not sure if I have ever pushed 175 before, but I think that is where I left off in my last program. I normally have been hitting triples for my heavy days, but I kind of struggled on my second attempt, so I left it at that. Program only prescribes 2 singles, so I didn't skimp, just didn't go the extra mile. I took too long on my warm up sets. I should have just knocked it down, but I fooled around making sure I was absolutely ready. Also because my form has been changing, I didn't feel as comfortable as I normally do.

Squats were no problem today. I crushed it, even though it was only 3x3 with 185. I have really been having a hard time squatting, but the time off I think really helped out.

Deads felt good today as well. Not pulling much today, but form felt good. I didn't fall foward today, and kept it on my heels.
