Well no PR today for MP. My traps and upper back were big time sore from DLs. Ah well, it wasn't a bad performance but I have done better.

They got new DBs at the gym ... which is good except they have a fat grip. So now rows is more of a grip focus than a pulling focus. We may change exercises to focus more on the weight than the grip strength required.

A good solid workout today. I didn't want to push week 2 too far just so I can really take week 3 to the limit where I'll getting into new territory.

Leg raises dropped off fast but oh well. ha

Good question ... If I had to guess I'd say 18% ish? Hopefully less than 20. It's getting up there and I'm going to have to slow this bulk down I think soon.

Thoughts

Well I did the same amount of reps as I did the last time I did 180lb ... I seem to be leveling off here. I've come quite a ways though so I guess that's alright. Should be getting close to maxing out in a few cycles I would say. Would be great to hit 200lb!

We tried a new lat exercise. We weren't happy with how the new DBs turned the exercise into a grip oriented lift so we took grip strength out the equation. We'll see how this goes after a few cycles.

P.S. - I'm heavy as Fack today! Went out to eat last night for supper and apparently it shows.

Well I was hoping for 7 reps but 6 isn't too bad. I could have tried for a 7th but it would have been ugly so I decided to save it for week 3.

Next week I can't forget about grip worK!

Last week I did 250 x 2 ... I was really hoping for 2 reps this time ... when I managed 3 I was stoked. It makes me feel like this is at least a hope of me possibly hitting 275lb in a few months.
