In your front squat sets you're doing 275lb. There are 2plates which are assume are 45's and the outside ones look like 35lb plates to me (which would give you 295lb). At least compared to the ones at my gym. The 25lb are a much smaller diameter.

Anyways, it's neither here nor there.

lol

Don't worry, I believe you. lol

But if you had told it was 295lb I wouldn't have asked questions. haha

Anyways, you're doing some good work in here.

PRESS TRAINING - Mesocycle 23 Week 1

This was Saturday night. Devraj, Kanishk and I went in for this workout. It was Kanishk's Deadlift Day, Devraj's Squat Training and Press Day for me.

Unilateral OHP: 70 lbs x 5 reps x 4 sets
I thought I'd be able to do more on this but my right and left biceps were in pain from the Friday's Back Training session.

Close Grip Bench Press:
185 lbs x 5 reps
205 lbs x 4 reps
205 lbs x 3 reps
205 lbs x 3 reps
185 lbs x 7 reps
This exercise was extremely frustrating. My right bicep was hurting like hell from the previous day's back session. It was damn painful once the bar hit my chest and on the second and third sets with 205 lbs I just failed. Pretty darn annoying and painful!

Banded Push-ups: Black Band x 10 reps x 2 sets
I had no idea what to do after that CGBP debacle....My elbow hurt doing any movement.

Front Planks with Elevation of Alternate Arm and Leg: BW x 60 seconds x 3 sets

Here's the long video...Clips of Kanishk, Devraj and me:

PISTOL SQUAT TRAINING - Mesocycle 23 Week 2

Ate like a pig today....

Pistol Squats Density Training @ 13 minutes:
8 + 7 + 6 + 6 + 7 + 7 = 41 reps TOTAL
Killed me. Next week back to regular straight sets.

Weighted Pull-ups:
BW + 20 lbs x 3 reps
BW + 30 lbs x 4 reps
BW + 40 lbs x 3 reps
Total = 10 reps

BodyWeight Pull-ups: BW x 10 reps x 2 sets

I have a video which I've edited to fit YouTube. It's 8:55 long. The Pull-ups, etc begin at roughly 7:10 or so.

Front Squats:
275 lbs x 3 reps
285 lbs x 2 reps
295 lbs x 2 reps
275 lbs x 2 reps
Pretty difficult. I'm glad I pushed it.

Back Squats:
275 lbs x 5 reps

I cannot describe how much I loathe this lift!
