    First time ever doing good mornings so cut me a break on the weight. Only about the fifth time doing deads...slowly making progress. I tried to go for 325 on the deads but couldnt quite lock it, settled for 320.

    I think I am going to do some legs tomorrow instead of Saturday after work tomorrow. I get off around 8:30 and I can just walk right down to the gym, its usually empty by that time anyway.

    New Squat PR!!! The reason I had to do it 3 times was I didnt go low enough on the first two and all I heard from my buddies was "cough...pussy...lower...cough". Finally on my third try I went low enough.

    Finally caught one of my buddies at the gym to give me a spot for the bench press and got my 275 baby. Went for 280 but I got the bar about 4 inches off my chest and didnt have the energy. Check my weight today and I am in at 174!!! Sweet deal there...

    I am thinking of trying dead presses tomorrow in addition to my shoulders. I really want to try them and I kinda cant wait till tuesday. btw, anyone who reads this know what the benefit is of doing them static. Lifting it off and then holding it for a count?

    I tried out those static dead presses which were cool. Then I got my form down for the power cleans (thank you youtube). After that I went to my shoulder workout.

    I hope to be able to hit 180 by the end of this week. I weighed in at around 178 today. I am making gains like crazy since I stopped heavy cardio. It also helps that I eat everything in sight. I plan on doing some before and after pics soon just to see if the muscle I have put on is noticeable.

    Oh yeah the reason those front squats are so weak is because some ******* in the gym decided to take the one squat rack for BICEPT CURLS. yes, he was being that guy. I set a new power clean record though lol...135. (Hadda clean the weight to get setup for front squats.)
