Trying to work on my bench form a bit. I noticed my wrists are really bent back when I lift so I'm trying to get the bar straight over my elbow.

I was really focusing on form on bench. I worked up to 205lb but I found my wrists were starting to arch back like I'm used to doing. I dropped back to 185lb so I could get some volume in with a weight where I could hold good form. I'm trying to get the weight to be supported directly over my wrist and directly over my elbow.

On a positive note ... sort of ... my body weight is very stable lately.

For squats today I thought I'd ditch the box and try some wide stance power-lifter style squats. Totally different feel ... and I suck at it. lol I can see why they would use it though. You can build up a lot of tension in the hole.

Running on fumes today. 3hr of sleep last night ... went to bed at a reasonable hour but just couldn't shut down. Wow did that suck today at work.

Decided to switch back to conventional deads for now. Feels so weird and different.

Also did a set of leg press and hamstring curl in there while waiting for the deadlift pad to open ... was going to come back to it after but was just way too gassed.

I thought deads felt pretty solid at 170 but then I went for 180 and it all went to shit. My back rounded really badly. I guess my low back isn't as conditioned as it once was since we've been pulling sumo and doing box squats. I thought I'd for sure pulled something but it seems to be ok today. Anyway, we may have to switch from sumo to conv every month just to stay more "in the groove."

Annnddd that was my last workout this week since I'm heading out of town tomorrow. What a bad note to leave on.
