I hate it when my reading comprehension skills fail me. Still beyond solid work, SquatMaster!

5/3/1 RELOADED CYCLE 8 WEEK 1 BENCH PRESS

Special shout out to Big Al to express my gratitude for teaching me how to bench properly Since joining the forum and getting to know all of you, I have discovered why my lifts were in a perpetual plateau for years and years - I wasn't doing some of them, like benching, with proper technique. Well, that's all history now. Is my form perfect? Nope. Will it ever be perfect? Probably not. But now I have a solid base on which to build upon to reach my goals. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart, to all of you!!

Bench Press 5/3/1
(Goal) Actual
(175 X3) 175 X3
(197.5 X3) 197.5 X3
(222.5 X3) 225 X6
My previous best at 225 was 5 reps. I wasn't going to take a vid today, but on my 1st 2 531 sets I was getting such good leg drive, I quickly set up the camera because I wanted to show Al that I finally figured it out. It was amazing. I could really feel the leg drive helping me power up the bar. Very emotional morning today

Here's the vid:


Heavy Singles
245 X1
245 X1
245 x1
The 3rd single went up just as smooth as the 1st My 1 RM is 250 lbs!!

ASSISTANCE LIFTS

Incline DB Bench
90 X9 PB +5 lbs
90 X9
75 X12
I have maxed out my Bowflex DB's for benching.

Pendlay Rows
230 X7 PB +5 lbs
230 X7
230 X7

Chin Ups
50 Total reps PB +10 Reps (5,5,5,5,5,4,3,3,3,3,3,3)
Al - these were absolute torture. There was smoke coming from my lats. Severe DOMS. The last set was pure agony

Another thing I have noticed of late is that I do not fade, fizzle, and fatigue anymore as the sets roll on. I used to always do this and it was so annoying. On the chins, I lowered the reps to 3 per set in order to keep good form on all reps.

Deads are on tap for Saturday AM. Money set is 410 X3. I will be ecstatic to get 6 reps. 7 reps will make me get emotional I am sure. Singles are set at 430

5/3/1 RELOADED CYCLE 8 WEEK 1 DEADLIFT

Fuk, I love to deadlift - more than anything else. Every ounce of me went into today's session. As much as I give all my sessions everything I got, I always manage to dig deeper on deadlift day. Week 1 of this cycle 8 has been my best lifting ever. I'm also the happiest I have ever been in a long, long time. This is all unfinished business that I started 25 years ago - and I'm far from finished yet.

Deadlift 5/3/1
(Goal) Actual
(320 X3) 320 X3
(365 X3) 365 X3
(410 X3) 410 X8 Words really cannot express how I feel about this

Heavy Singles
430 X1
430 X1
435 X1
Failure was not an option this time on the 3rd single.

ASSISTANCE LIFTS

Sumo Deadlifts
315 X10 PB +30 lbs
315 X10
315 X10

BB Shrugs
495 X5
580 X7 PB +5 lbs
580 X7
495 X10


Standing BB Curls
95 X9 PB +5 lbs
95 X9
95 X8
I got tired of looking at small plates while doing these - so on went 2 25lb plates. Mrs Squatter measured my bi's today and they are almost 17 inches!!

Cardio

10K (6.2 Miles)
52 Mins
729 Cals burned.

So, here are all the vids from today:

410 X8


430 x1 Single


435 X1 Single


315 X10 Sumo
