Nice work Josh! You'll figure something out on the squats.

Loved the 23s on leg curl. (Not 20, not 25, but 23 per set. I don't think my mind would allow an odd number like that more than once)

Thanks Mike! 1 more rep every week. Slow and steady.

I will give them a shot. Thanks for the suggestions. Are they supposed to be easier on the lower back?

Default 9/8/13 AM Hill Sprints

Hill Sprints
1 minute intervals x 20ish minutes

Overall Workout Grade: C+

Notes:
Was at the hill by 6:15am. Killed myself for about 20minutes. Doing sprints at 1 minute intervals. It's been over a week since I've done these and my performance wasn't on par. I just didn't have the explosiveness this morning.

9/9/13
Day off

Default 9/10/13 Cycle ? Week 3 Bench Press

Bench
247.5x3
280x1
315x1 (Goal x1)
First Set last:
245x8

CGBP
205x8,8,7

BB Row
135x10,145x10,155x10

Mini band Tricep Pushdown
x22,22,20
BB Curl
65x8,75x8,85x5

Overall Workout Grade:B-

Notes:
I am still not feeling back to 100% after being sick for a week. I didn't restart my cycle or reset I just came back in and picked up where I left off, which is week 3, the heaviest week. Probably a mistake. But i will just start the cycle over and take another run at it.
Having said all that, I still hit my goal for the day. It's just every bench set felt heavy as fuk and I expected some reps on my top set. A little dissapointed with just 1 rep.
I am kind of tired of doing DB rows. So I switched to bb rows. Probably not the best idea, considering I am currently going through physical therapy for lower back issues, but I am too stupid to realize this. It didn't seem to aggrivate my lower back too much.
