It probably wouldnt have been so bad if I wouldnt have tried to shoulder so many stones. I tweaked my low back again, then thought to myself-the last time I hurt my back was because I was shouldering stones. Some people never learn.

Default 9/28/2011 Clean and Press w/Cardio

Ok so after a few days of letting my lower back unscrew itself I hit the gym today at lunch.

Warm-Up:
7 minute Bike
Diesel Crew Shoulder warm up
Foam Roll

Snatch:
BarX5
75X5
95X5
115X3

Power clean and strict press(clean each rep):
135X5
155X3
175X>1(GOT 3)

Preacher Curls:
55X10
60X10
65X10

Cardio:
Elliptical-16 minutes, 1.6 miles, 144 calories burned

Notes: I am getting much better at snatches. The cleaning of each rep for pressing was pretty grueling. My bicep is still pretty odd feeling so I kept it lighter with higher reps for curls. I skipped 1 armed rows and DB bench to let my lower back rest up a bit. Overall grade is a B+.

Nice snatches. I find them almost easier than cleans on my elbows.

When you said you did 20 sets of squats I had no clue they were limited rest. Beast!

I am still doing 5/3/1. Last week was just a touch odd with how it played into my competition this weekend. It was supposed to be my deload week, but with a comp a week away I didnt want to start a "5" week, then do a comp. I used last week as a "fun" week and will do the deload this week. I have been off con-cret for a little touch, but I will jump back on next week. I plan on starting my slow cut to 231 next monday. Ideally I will be there with enough time to get back any strength I lose in the process and be competitive in some strongman contests.

So today I skipped my OH deload session due to being mentally fatigued by working like a slave all weekend. The rest of the week is planned out like this:
Tuesday: OH and Deadlift deload
Wednesday: Squat and clean and press deload
Thursday: cardio style recovery
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Competition in Morton, IL, beers and wings afterwards
Sunday: Drive back, be in pain and uncomfortable
Monday: Onto the next wave if possible!
