Thanks man.

I missed it a few inches off the chest. What helped my bench go up before was abbreviated training combined with a focus on poundage progression. I also added in some bottom-position work. Before that I was doing ~205, and I went up to 185x5x5, 205x5, and 235x1.

My muscles are still getting used to the old motor patterns it seems, but my lifts are climbing back up quickly.

Well, you don't seem confused about why you missed it, so you know what you gotta do to blast through that barrier. Get after it!

Thank a lot, guys!


Overhead Press:
85x1
95x2x1
115x5x1


Deadlift:
135x3
225x2
275x2
315x1
365x1
405x1

Much better than last session. I'm finding that an overhand grip takes me out of my groove; as soon as I switched to alternating grip, my pulls felt a lot stronger.


Barbell Curl:
80x5
90x5
100x3
105x1

Nice work IM. Did that 405 come up without much of a fight?

Yeah, it wasn't all that hard.

I was going over a lot of old strongman articles yesterday and reviewing my old deadlift videos to see if I needed to adjust anything with my technique. Today it was much better.

I might have been able to do more, but I reasoned that I'll be working back up to 450 in no time anyway and felt that I should stop with that for the day. Just last week 365 felt excessively heavy.

Interview went all right; I have to get another one set up sometime next week. Just spent some time with the family for my birthday.
