Week 33, Thursday, 10-18-12
Deadlift, 5 reps, 260, 350, 390(2). New 1rep PB. Really a 2rep PB.
F.Squat, 135(7), 185(5), wave one 205(3), wave two 210(3)
Calf raise 8 reps, 155, 180, 200(6).
V-ups 2x15

Deadlift: Got the reps of 350 w/o much trouble. The 2 reps of 390 were very good form. Just a tad stiff the next day. No lowerback soreness. Sweet. I might try for 1 rep of 405 next week, just to see if I can get 1 rep.

Front Squat: Form has greatly improved.

Week 33, Friday, 10-19-12
BbRow, 195(7,7,6). 25RG missed. Got 20 reps. Felt good. 1st attempt.
IncDbBench, 100(7,6,5). 25RG missed, 1 more than ever done, 4 more than last wk.
Pullups, BW+20 (8,6,6,4).
OH Press 140 (10,8,7). 25RG met. Time to move up.

Incline: Felt a lot better than before. I think the lighter BB bench on Tuesday is leaving me less stressed for Friday incline.

OHP: Got the 15 reps. Time to try 145 next week. First progress on OHP in 8 weeks.

Week 34, Monday, 10-22-12
Squats (heels on a board), 245 (7,7,7,4).
Calf Raise 8 reps, 305, 320, 330(7)
Leg Press, 650(8), 740(6)
W.Situps, 70 pounds, 3x15.

No time for hangcleans for the 2nd week in a row. I think I'll just do hangcleans first, before Squats.

Squats: Not thrilled with my form. So I'll stay at this weight for another week.

Week 34, Tuesday, 10-23-12
Bench, 240(9,8,7). 25RG missed. 1 rep short.
DbRow 95 (15,12).
Dips BW+70(9,7,4).
Chinups BW+15(7,6,4)

Both Dips and Chins are the same as the week before and pretty much unchanged for weeks. Not sure what to do about them. Ideas? Drop the weight some and go for higher reps?

Hope you can get that form issue ironed out.

Keep pushing.

Hope that bench unsticks for you soon. Those are some decent reps you're pushing.
