Default Overtraining, a Beard and an 800 Deadlift

8 weeks until my meet. Need to focus. Work is kicking my butt and my head is in a dark place. Going to be running a solo log for a while, at least until I get it into gear.

Workout Plan (currently):

--Squats & Deads
--Bench & Rows
--Squats & Deads
--OHP & Cleans
--Squats & Deads
--OHP & Rows

Still ironing out the addition of volume with Fazc. Stay tuned.

February 20th, 2012

Workout Time: 65 minutes

Workout Grade: B-

Was planning on doing more squat singles but my left quad hinted after that the tweak I had last week was not 100%. I will play things day by day until it cooperates. It's nothing major. Just playing things safe.

Performed RDLs for the first time in over 18 months and hit a PR. Form is much improved thanks to Rippetoe. Reps were strict and quality.. Bar was perhaps 4 inches below the knee.

Added some ab work back in. I need it. A little goes a long way. Been slacking on it the last 2 months. Also did some leg extensions just to get some blood into the quads.

Conditioning stinks right now. This workout was challenging in a good way.

Squats
145 x 5
235 x 3
325 x 1
415 x 1

465 x 1
515 x 1
465 x 1 - Left quad very minor tweak

Romanian Deadlift
135 x 3
225 x 1
315 x 1
405 x 1

500 x 5 singles - PR

Weighted Sit Ups
45 x 12
45 x 10

Plate Side Bends
45 x 10
45 x 10

Leg Extensions

95 x 10
95 x 10
95 x 10

Even with a tweak some very strong squating, and great job on the RDL PR!

Also can't wait to see how this turns out for you.

Good Session! Get some big man. Congratulations on the RDL PR. Like you Rippetoe's video helped me out and like you I didn't do them for a while and then nailed a PR. I think the carry over between RDLs and deads are huge.
Great work. Looking forward to seeing you peak as you get closer to the meet.

Great work. Looking forward to seeing you peak as you get closer to the meet.

Before seeing the Rippetoe video I was doing them a bit out from the legs. It was killing my hips of all things.
