Box squats w/ 12 in box:
385x2, missed the last rep, dropped it on the pins because it didnt feel good
Rack pulls, lowest setting on power rack:
stack for 3 sets of 5
tonight was definetely not my night. i had a bad day, didn't eat that much, and didn't get enough sleep at all. my lifts really suffered because of this. also, i felt a pinch in my lower back on the rack pulls, so i decided to stop...also my left shoulder is not feeling good at all. i think i slept on it weird, i'm going to rest a bunch on my off days, and then i'm going to start back up tuesday with the real way westside is intended to be done, ME days first.
solid box squats d00d
no workout tonight. i'm off to see hatebreed and terror.
tricep dip machine:
heavy front, rear, and side delt raises
last night's workout was okay. i think i might have another sinus infection or something, my throat is starting to hurt again. :swear: we'll see how i feel before i lift tonight.
So, apparently my sinus infection isn't through having its way with me. its still lingering in my system, so i've decided to take the rest of the week of, and start back strong sunday.
heavy rear, front, and side delt raises
this was an okay, but by no means my best. it's good to get back in the gym though. this was my second time trying floor press, its akward and i'm still having the elbow problems, even with narrowing the grip. oh well, i guess i'll try them SUPER narrow next time. everything else felt pretty good. ME squat tomorrow, with no partner. :bang:
that's a nice solid workout. Why do you do the delt raises every ME day? I think my shoulders would try to kill me after that.
hmmm I might have to try those. Other than being weak in general, I don't really know what's holding back my bench. Do you super set them, or do like 3 sets of each?
You've got some good strength man. What are your stats?
nice floor press man
18 years old
6'3, 290 lbs
the reason i put "ish" on all of them is i havent gauged a max attempt for any lift in quite awhile. attempts will come soon!
ATF Squat, as low as possible:
no box, straps, belt, anything. decided to go with just me and the weight tonight.
i pretty much crapped out on these at the end. this is the only thing that i don't like about westside, DL and squat in the same day...i can get a decent DL workout after squats, but not my best.
700 for 3 x 6
leg extension, stack for 3 x 6
standing calves, stack for 3 x 8
reverse hypers, BW for 3 x 8
pretty good workout overall. i had to listen to some crazy 40 yr old lady with a thick italian accent tell me about how the jacob's ladder machine is better than squatting, because it works your whole body. needless to say, this was pretty entertaining. tonight was the first night i've had a crowd watching me squat as well, haha. i'm not sure if it was me squatting or the crazy italian lady. either way, it felt pretty good. i would like to squat 500 lbs for my first PL competition, which is at the end of july. i am not sure if this is going to happen or not, what do you guys think?
nice f'n squats and deads!
Nice job man. I dunno too many people that squat and pull heavy in the same workout. I know they'll squat and pull heavy during DE days but I haven't seen too many people squat and pull with same stance during ME days.
I don't know how you could stand to do a deadlift max triple after that killer squat workout! You should try some lighter stuff afterwards...maybe some DLs off a platform?
yeah i am thinking about changing the heavy squats and pulls on the same day. basically my entire lower body is toast right now, can i get some microlactin asap.
