Comments: Another experiment day of sorts for overhead. Trying to get my right side to mimic my left side for the rack position. Ok for the smaller dumbbells when warming up but no good for the actual implement. I am putting it in a different position now, just slows me down a bit to let it settle is all. I felt fine until the top set. I got two reps pretty well on the right side but just couldn't get it for a third. I tried and failed like five times before stopping. Angry and embarrassed about it but told myself that I'm going to be using just the left at the show. Almost disaster with that side as well when the third rep almost jumped out of my hand and I had to catch it with my other hand. Had to think a bit after that as I've never had that issue with my left hand. The only thing I could think of was that I wasn't chalking up my hands and I didn't think that would be that big of a factor. I didn't want to end on such a low note so I decided to redo the top set with chalked up hands. What a difference. With my grip a bit more secure, I could transfer more power into the the dumbbell and I got the reps easy both sides. Lesson learned haha. Last week my secondary exercise had been the supports to work on the balance and stability with supramaximal weights. This time, it was to get the body used to getting that weight to my shoulder to press. I wanted to hit the same weight I did on supports but I knew that would be tough. Not much issue getting the 202lbs up with a one motion clean (couldn't do that before) but I had to switch to the two part clean for 222lbs and up. Just went to singles for those. Big difference between 202lbs and 232lbs on a dumbbell haha. Finished up with my band superset and called it a day.

32 Minutes of Stretching

Comments: Had a lot of anger from work. Needed to calm down and focus so it was a good thing I had a workout today to let off some steam. Original plan was 10x1 on deads but I went with 8x3 like I did for squats. I like symmetry in my workouts haha. Continuing to use the newer deadlift setup I started using last week. Felt easy to break the weights off the floor. Rather than do regular sumo stiff-legged deads, I decided to do them from a deficit. I've learned from experience that trying to use a platform doesn't work well with sumo from how wide I need my stance and since the platform spreads out if it's two pieces. Loaded up the bar with 25's to make it 3". Glute hams went much better this time around, possibly since my lower back wouldn't be as fatigued from the exercises this week. Got all the reps no problem. I had the settings off a little for the first set which made enough of a change where there was constant tension on the hamstrings. Need to remember that for future reference but for now I'll stick with normal style. Increased weight on abs made it a bit more challenging. Finished up with reverse hypers and stretching.

Tried to do events the other day but that was just garbage. Not recovering enough to do anything truly heavy the day after deadlifting. Not sure how to break up the schedule to allow for enough recover with the stuff I have to work around at the moment. Might need to do some more thinking.

April 07, 2013 Speed Press Day

Close Grip Barbell Incline Bench Presses
45x10

Incline Chest Supported Dumbbell Rows
120sx12

Dumbbell Overhead Extensions (seated)
110x12
110x12
110x11

IYTs
5sx12
5sx12
5sx12

34 Minutes of Stretching

Comments: Lower back was sore from attempted event training the day before. Pressing felt good, nice and speedy. Moved on to seated log work. Not bad, just might have started a tad light. Made a bigger jump at the end for an extra set and that was definitely my limit for today. Managed all the reps for rows this time. Went back to the 110lbs dumbbell for triceps as I never did all the reps the last time I did it (accidentally did 120lbs last week) and I wanted to make sure I was going nice and deep with my reps. So close to getting all the reps. Finished up with shoulder stuff and stretching.
