Default 12/31/12 Cycle 8 Week 2 Deadlift

Deadlift
260x3
295x3
330x0 (Goal x3) Did not attempt lift due to back pain.

Front Squat
105x10, 115x10, 125x10

Kirk Karwoski Rows
135x15,15,13

Decline crunches
Bwx21x3

Overall Workout Grade: D+


Notes:
I didn't attempt my top deadlift set. My back is still tweeked from last week. Fortunately it isn't really having an impact on any other lifts besides my deads, unfortunately it is really effecting my deads.
I was going to push through and do the top set, but my brain won the battle between brains and balls. My lower back was in enough discomfort after the second working set that I felt it would have caused injury to pull the top set.
Tonight I had to take a muscle relaxer to ease the discomfort in my lower back, so I think I made the right call.

Front squats felt great. I enjoy this lift. It really nails the quads and is probably the best ab exercise I can think of.

KK rows are awesome.

Aw man, hate to see you having a problem with the lower back. I have been there many times and I'm there now. Squats yesterday made it feel better tho, so I am glad to hear the fronts felt good.

Is there any plans to get it checked by either a Doc or a physiotherapist?

Indeed, front squats and Oly lifts are definitely the best for Abs.

At any rate, I hope you are back to pulling shortly.

Nice work Josh. Smart move to take care of that back. Brain should always win those battles so you can stay in the war.

Amazing Fronts too. High reps with those is no joke.

I gotta try those KK Rows!

Thanks Steve. Happy new year to you also. I learn from guys like you that sometimes it's smarter to call a work and not take risks.

No plans to go to the Doc yet. It is improving. And only hurt when I did the deads. I think I will finish the last week of this cycle and go from there. If it's still hurting after the deload I will maybe see what the doctor has to say.
Really though, it's been worse and I think it just needs a bit of time.
Glad I'm not the only one who has noticed that about Abs and Front Squats!

thanks Mike! Brain should always win those battles, but that has been a lesson hard learned for myself. And I am sure for many of us!!
Thanks about the front squats. High Rep any squat is hard!
I don't want to hype the KK rows up too much, but my traps are swole up from them here 2 days later! This is just one man's opinion, but I think they are bad ass.

Default 1/1/2013 Cycle 8 Week 3 Over Head Press (OHP)

OHP
140x5
160x3
175x1 (Goal x1)

CGBP
140x10, 190x10, 210x13

Rack Chins (Fat man pull ups)
BWx 10,8,6

EZ Bar Drag Curls 60x15,15,14
SS w/ Lateral DB raises 10x17x2
SS w/ Band Face pulls x15x2

Overall Workout Grade: B+

Notes:
Worked out at a different time than usual, earlier in the day. It kind of through me off just a bit. Still felt like a solid session however.
The top set of OHP was a grinder of epic proportions. It wasn't a grinder form breakdown wise, as my form remained solid and true. But the bar speed slowed way down and I really had to gut it out and just push! It was awesome that I nailed with what felt like no hitch or cheat, just kept right on pushing until that bitch locked out.

I broke a mirror before starting CGBP, so on my top set I went for 13. It made sense to me in the moment.

Rest of the session was pretty standard. Felt like a good way to start the new year.

Had kind of a funny moment. My brother has been in town from Wisconsin. He kind of lifts sometimes but is getting back into it. He asked me about my curl form vs. his. I looked at him and told him "it's an f'n curl dude, don't worry so much about it". Just seemed to catch him off guard.
