Madcows 5x5 with lefthookright
 
Already have a log on bb.com but come on free supps!? So Just yesterday I finished my 2nd week of madcows. Set out my 5 rep maxes for week 5 because I'm currently cutting back to around 150. Current 5 rep maxes are
bench 165x5
Deadlift 305x5
Squat 195x5
Overhead press 110x4
Bent over barbell row 135x5
So far I'm keeping thursday the same and I'm doing deficit deads and front squats to try to improve the bottom portion because that's my sticking point [I do tuesday thursday saturday as I have guitar lessons monday and church on wednesday and often time pep band on fridays]
Yes weak lifts for now will update tuesday. And post all prs. Will update dry weight every friday.

To answer the question yes I used to do olympic style squats so I'm still getting used to parallel squats my olympic squat is only about 30 pounds difference : P lol but I'll pull ahead with this program.
And Yes I'm in our school's jazz band so I must participate in all jazz band pep band concert band and marching band events. It's a tough gig for a 3rd trumpet but it's fun.
And I got all my lifts today
went to 150x5 on bench
125x5 on barbell row grip almost gave out here trained my CoC 2 hard couple days ago lol
and up to 180x5 put on a belt for the first time here on my last set. Just real light didn't tighten it up too much trying to get used to taking a big breath in my stomach and tensing core ever squat. good session afterwords had a pwo with carbs+protein then hour later some chicken then later some nuts and granola right before bed 1 cup of cottage cheese and 8 ounces of milk

Darn right it's fun. Lifts look good. Keep it up. I'll keep looking in. Weightlifting has helped my trumpet playing tremendously.

Good job LRR. And you're not alone with barbell rows and grip issues.
