Well those numbers might seem poor, but I think they're manageable. At least you have some hopes of adding a rep. I'm still stuck at a half rep.

Thursday, 3-15-12
Deadlift 3x5, 235, 295, 345
Squat 1x20, 165
OH Press 145 (7,7,6). 20 rep goal met.
Calf Raise 3x8, 90, 135, 145
Crunch 3x15, 19, 19, 19

Deadlifts were harder than expected today, but I got all my reps in.

20 rep squats continue to kill me. 175 next week.

After barely getting all my reps at 145 last week, I was a little worried ths week. No need. I got the reps easier than I thought.

That's the way it usually works for me. Nicely done.

They only get worse. I can only run them for about 6 weeks max.

You will get that pullups rep goal next time J! Great job meeting most of your rep goals though, keep at it.

Monday, 3-19-12
Squat, 255 (7,7,6). 20 rep goal met.
Calf Raise 3x8, 245, 265, 285
Ceans 5x3, 125.

Didn't do situps or sidebends b/c I ran out of time. Cleans are quickly becoming a favorite.

Tuesday, 3-20-12
Bench, 240 (7,7,5). Missed rep goal.
Db Row 3x10-15, 70 (11,11,10)
Dips 60 (8,7,7). 20 rep goal met.
Chinups BW (7,7,6). 20 rep goal met.

Missed the bench reps by 1. Still pretty stoked that I got the chinups this week.

Thursday, 3-22-12
Deadlift 3x5, 225, 315, 350
Squat 1x20, 185. Oh yeah.
OH Press 150 (6,6,5). Missed 20rep goal.
Calf Raise 3x8, 90(10), 145, 155
Cble Crunch 3x10-15, 19(15), 20(15), 20(12)

Thrilled with the deadlift form today.

The OH press just felt heavy today for some reason. Only got 17 reps. I'll get em next week.

Holy crap, 20 reps of 185 killed me. I was planning to do 175, but accidentally put 185 on the bar. My thoughts on this:
--Rep 10--"this isn't so bad, I'm gonna kill this."
--Rep 14--(out of breath), "there is no way I can do 18."
--Rep 16--"I'm gonna throw up."
--Rep 18--"I don't have the energy to breath."
--Rep 20--"Don't throw up! Don't throw up!"
