Bench Press:
135x4
155x2
185x1 (felt heavy for some stupid reason)
175x2 (this too)
155x3
175x3
185x2

Used a closer grip today to experiment. Don't know if I like it much.


Deadlift:
135x2
225x1
315x1
365x1
395x5x1
405x1

Working around 85-87%; they were pretty fast. I was psyched-up and ready to wrestle a cougar afterward, so I just starting throwing shit together:

Barbell Curl:
100x3x5


Weighted Dips:
+35x4
+50x3x4
+60x3x4


Felt stronger after training than going in.

I'll have to experiment a bit, but so far it seems like I actually have more energy when I just wake up and get after it.

Even though you are working on 85-87% capacity ... these are some very good numbers IronManlet ...

I've found after some trial-and-error that I make good progress on my deadlift when I'm not maxing out too often and instead work between 85-90%.


I forgot to put this into my post: my gym just got in another power rack today. Literally. I was working in that place at 7am and it was not there.

Not that anyone at my gym uses them for anything other than curling or pull-up stations...but I sure as heck will.

This was just a warm-up.

500 will fall before the year is out.
