I'm starting a new routine. It is based around olympic and powerlifting. Here's the plan-

Monday- Deadlift/Clean
Wednesday- Bench Press
Friday- Squat/Clean

I am going to pyramid up to a max set of 4-6 on the main exercises. My goals are to put on some solid muscle, drop bodyfat, and up my strength and power. First workout will be today, with Bench Press.

TRAINING

Bench Press

Bench Press-
45X10
135X8
185X5
225X2
245X4 (!)

Good sets. I might have had a LITTLE fingertip assistance on the last rep with 245, but shhhh, don't tell anyone.

CG Bench Press-
185X 5 (2)
135X10

Good sets, really felt em in my triceps.

Push Presses-
135X8
160X3 (2)

These sucked. The thing is my left bicep started acting up, and I had NO control of the negative portion, or otherwise these would have been a lot higher.

Hammer Curls-
25'sX10 (3)

I decided that the possible cause for the bicep troubles have been due to a possible muscle inbalance. So, I decided to start working my biceps directly to hopefully solve the problem. We'll see how things work out.

GENERAL

Sleep- 8 broken hours

Diet- Bleh, not good at all. Calories are way too low.

Workout rating- 7/10
