Thanks fellas.

Nice easy day today. Pleasant out, so took a leisurely walk, fired up the grill when I got back and cooked some great chicken.

Looks like a pretty brutal session. I'm getting worn out just looking at it. Very intense.

So, if I were to grade my workout today, its a B+ and a D-. B+ if I go by the numbers I moved, D- if I go by how it felt.

Squat - ugh
Bar x 5
40 # KB Goblet squat x 5
Bar x 10
95 x 5
135 x 5
185 x 5
225 x 3
275 x 5 doubles - huge PR, but each one felt impossibly heavy

Bench - arg no legs left to help
Bar x 10 - this felt heavy
95 x 5 - almost didn't finish these
135 x 5
185 x 3
205 x 3
205 x 1 - pinned, yay spotter
205 x 3
205 x 3
205 x 2
205 x 1 - massive lat cramp

205 triples are a PR
BB Row
105 x 5 x 10

Fin


Everything felt heavy and didn't want to move. I got it done, but damn today was nasty.

It will get better Might take months, but it will. All part of the (not so fun) mental game.

Considering where your PR was a month ago this is a great achievement.

Thanks BtB. I'm considering splitting bench out from squats, or at least doing the rows in between to let my legs recover. Its more proof to me that I have to work on my conditioning.

Probably not a bad move. Sometimes I shuffle around loves to maximize recovery for the biggest lifts.
