ME Squat Day

Pulled conventional against an orange band today, nothing too crazy tension wise.Did pretty well form was better than usual and managed to hit 160kg 4 wheels a side so that was cool.Took a few plates off and did 3 sets of SLDL next, yowsers my whole PC blew up from these.Did my dragon flags next and then finished with uni rdl/sldls.These pump the lower back and glutes like nothing else.

ME Squat Day 15/6/09
Conv DL against 1 Orange Band 1x1 150kg, 160kg 1xM 170kg (fucker would not budge!)
SLDL+ Orange Band 3x7 100kg
Dragon Flag 3x8 BW+7.5kg
Uni RDL 20kg ea 2x12

Extra Workout 15/6/09

Still no sledding, very hard to find the time, work is still nuts so I did another little workout for lower back abs and legs.With little rest in between sets I did-

Hypers 3x10 BW+10-15kg
Planks 2x1min BW+10kg x45secs BW+15kg
Bulgarian Split Squats 2x12 BW+5kg

Good workout, it hit all my weaknesses and I felt great after.

ME Bench Day

Flat bench today,pretty good day.Worked up to 97.5kg on the bar for a double which is a PR.I then added a 2 board for a double and then some work with the 3 board.Did some inclines next and then my accessory work.Tired.

ME Bench Day 17/6/09

Bench Up to 1x2 97.5kg
Add 2 Board 1x2 100kg 1x1 105kg
Add 3 Board 1x1 105kg
Incline CG 1x5 61kg 1x3 (arms just gave out here LOL)
Chin Clusters BW+20kg 3,3,3,3,3,3,2,2,2=24 reps (nice!)
DB Skulls 4x8 16kg
Uni DB Shoulder Press 3x8 10kg,16kg,20kg

A couple of these exercies have stalled, I will rotate DB skulls to rolling tri extensions and DB shoulder press to maybe laterals or something.Weird my board work is not stronger than my full ROM, I guess its proof of a weak lockout and tris.

Yep. Do you pause when you bench press?

I usually pause my board work. never usually full ROM stuff. Gonna do paused pin press for speed this week I think tho for a change of pace.

DE Bench Day

Worked the 3 board again for 5s this week.Man my lockouts are weak but they are improving with all the board work.Hit my speed sets without bands too, its amazing how explosive those things make you after a couple weeks.I was moving 60ish% very quickly.Did my rows next and then tris and delts.I am enjoying the delt work again.

DE Bench Day 20/6/09

3 Board 2x5 80kg, 90kg 2x4 95kg (wanted 5s but didnt want to miss)
Speed Bench 8x3 50-55kg
Straight bar Orange Band Pushdowns 4x12
Dumbell Rows 4x8 40kg ea
Power Press 4x10 30-35kg

The power press is like a partial ROM push press, I saw it on an old Brooks Kubink tape I got.Basically push to about half way up and then lower it.Its actually harder than full rom presses, and it blows my shoulders up.I will move to full MPs next cycle and alternate them I think.

ME Squat Day

Pulled sumo against the band tonight,dayum that shit was heavy.The way I setup the band was to wrap one end around the end of the bar, feed the band over the plate and then wrap it over the other end of the bar, I then rolled the bar over until the bands on the floor, then I just stand on the band and pull.Got vids I'll put em up.Anyway pulling wider stance sumo made the bands kick in even earlier, making this one tough sucker of a lift.Hit 161kg on the bar and missed 165kg half way up.Did some SLDLs next, dragon flags and then Uni RDLs for a near faceplant!.Glutes are just trashed.

ME Squat Day 22/6/09

Sumos + Orange Band 1x1 150kg, 161kg 1xM 165kg
SLDL 2x10,7 105kg (a bit too heavy but no failure)
Dragon Flags 4x8,8,6,6 BW+7.5kg
Uni RDL 2x12 22.5kg
