    ****ing great workout

    Squat upto 400 x 5
    was hyped up for this nearvous as **** because it was 5 i was aiming for and a new pr on the 3rd rep my nose literally xploded with a big blob of blood bursting onto the mirror infront of me, below parallel by far.

    Bench press 309 lb x 3 pr

    How do i get rid of this headache? im going out tonight for a few well deserved beers its been a fair few months..

    Thanks alot apreciate it.

    05/10/08

    wasnt happy atall tonight wasnt feeling motivated atall either.

    Squat added knee wraps and belt upto 420lb x ? but this is what happend.. end up putting 190kg on the bar some guy says ask me if you want a spot. I was thought yeah right i have seen you and your training partner housting weights up for each other with terrible form.
    So i unrack it by myslef walk out then he walks over i thought okay. First rep went down he grabs me so it flies up so then instead of thinking about the lift i have to tell him not to touch me etc. So the second rep he doesnt touch me and it went up pretty good then the third i fail half way up. Then he says wow you go deep as hell lol i was like er ye thanks for that

    Then drop setted untill i nearly puked

    close grip bench upto 287 x 5 287 lb has never felt so light

    Pullups to 77lb x 1 100lb cant be far away

    and some machine rows

    There were some real douche bags in the gym today need to find a mans gym.

    also my elbows are hurting real bad now, went through the pain from the first bench set think it was from squat 2 days ago.

    bad workout highly dissapointed with myelf and i have hurt my IT band and got sore elbows.

    Platform deadlift 440 fealt heavyier than usual 485 felt heavyier 507 felt very heavy and a 530lb epic fail got to my knees and kinda give up (head was not with it tonight)
    bair in mind i lifted 507 lb without a belt just chalk couple of weeks ago. This was with straps(cant find chalk anywere) knee wraps and a belt.
    The only thing i can think of is when i have chalk i start up right take a deep breath then straight down for the lift. With wrist straps i cant do that.
    ah well not happy
