Cheers fellas! I'm pretty sure I set some PRs at the meet. If I go in healthy, I don't see how I couldn't.

Put your meet in your log Imp. If it's not a horrendous drive, I could maybe come out and help you out.

Good day today! Felt great, bench form is coming along. Went for a PR that I shouldn't have gone for and just barely missed, but I'm not worried. It was just a bad rep right at the end when I was tiring.

JB Power Plan week 7

Warmups:
usual shoulder and arm stuff, 3x 12x 140 Lat Pulldowns, wood bar, etc.

Bench:
3x 225, 240,
added belt and wrist wraps
3x 255 (missed fourth rep, was only supposed to do 3 reps, tried for fourth on whim at last minute. Not smart. Live and learn)
added 2 board
1x 255, 285, 295 (Maybe could've done more, but was tired from that missed rep and safeties weren't set quite right, so if I missed, it could have been trouble. So didn't push it)

Tricep pushdown:
4x 8x 150
ss w/ 3x 10x 33 Hammers

Stretching and some mobility stuff and that's it.

3x 255:
3x 255 - YouTube
1x 285:
1x 285 2 brd - YouTube
1x 295:
1x 295 2 brd - YouTube

I'd have gone for 305+ on the 2 brd if I'd taken some time to set the safeties exactly right. I'll play around with that on bench aux day so I can mark it for next time I go with any boards.

Anyway, there you go. Rolling along.
Great workout Mike! Strong stuff today!!

Super solid 2 board work Mike. 305 is my 2 board PR. We are both closing in on that elusive 315!!

Thanks fellas! Bench is always two steps forward, one step back it seems. The bench gods really make you work for it, the bastids!

CRUSHED another squat day! Not sure what's up, but I am so confident with squatting lately. That said, I almost killed myself today. That last set was about the hardest thing I've ever done with a barbell in my life.

JBPP week 7

warmups: leg and hip stuff, mobility and some height jumps (I can almost touch the ceiling, like 4-6 inches better than when I started)

Squat:
3x 275, 295, 305
5x 325 (147.5 Kg)(+15 lb 5 rep PR!! Holy Cow!)

Narrow Squat:
2x 6x 205

Wide Squat:
2x 6x 185 (wides are much harder for me)

5x 325, OOF!:
6x 205, if it ever stops processing:
6x 185:
Why lifting at home can be just as annoying as the gym!

Anyway, good stuff today. Obviously, if you check out my signature, I'd have to fall down dead not to set a huge PR at my next meet. I'm also feeling dead confident I'll be squatting 405 sometime late this summer. That's a huge goal for me. Gotta stay smart and focussed of course, but it's getting a lot closer lately!!

I'm just so darn happy for you and your squattage Mike!! Depth was better on the first 2 reps, but they all were legit. Go figure- JB's plan is working!!

I am thinking your mental barriers are falling wrt squats as well.

I have cats running underfoot as I deadlift.

Smashed those squats Mike. I thought after the first rep that you might only have one or two more in you.
