    8/25 Squat

    *loose briefs*
    135x10
    225x10
    315x5
    *add belt*
    365x3
    405x3
    425x2
    485x1(5lbPR)
    505x1(25lbPR)
    *add wraps*
    525x1ish(45lbishPR?)

    Back Extension Machine
    270x12
    300x10x2

    Welcome to the 500lb club The 505 felt reallly good. So for some reason I decided to put on wraps. I gotta say....I HATE WRAPS!....at least if I have to walk out. I could not for the life of me walk out with the 525 wrapped. It took 2 shots and I did get it out, but couldnt get comfortable with my setup. I went with it anyway, and im not sure if I got to depth or not, but it went up quick, so Im counting the mofo! So F the wraps. Im not wearing them unless im in a Mono or have a few spotters. I dont know, does anyone else have a problem with walking out?
    I called it quits early because of time restraints, and will hit accessory work tommorrow.

    My strength got zapped very quickly today. The 475 felt like 4750. I was toast after it. My lockout was very weak too. I guess I kindve been neglecting lockout work lately and it sure showed today. There was no way i was locking out anything more. Gonna go back to the drawing board with my benching routines. The rest of the day was more like a DE day because i was just gassed.

    Changed it up a little and tried the shrug bar. Its obviously easier since your center of gravity is even with the bar, but a great exercise still. I saw a galaxy of stars after the second 550 set and did a convulsing chicken dance to go with it LOL. My buddy was cracking up saying thats what I looked like. Good times, good times...

    Extra Conditioning
    Teaching one of my 5 y/o twins how to ride her bike without training wheels. I must have sprinted up and down the street at least 20 times with her LOL.
    Im beat....and now I have to teach the other twin!

    Ive been kindve neglecting shoulder pressing work for awhile and figured I get a decent workout in. It really showed too. My strength in the presses was pretty aweful. I was hitting seated millies for 245x5 before, but today 205 felt like a ton. No biggie though. I plan on adding more shoulder work in the future, so it'll come around again.

    So today I gave Zerchers a shot for Lones' Zercher challenge. Its a good time for it too because I just had my last sitting for my shoulder tattoo yesterday and cant really put a bar across it yet. Everything up to 405 flew up no prob. 425 and 435 felt pretty good too, just a little awkward off the pins. On the 455 as I took the weight, I felt a "click" in my right shoulder, so I dumped it. Not to screw anything up, I quit there. I did get the 435 on vid, but Im not satisfied so Im going to give it another go at the end of the week. The decline BB situps I saw on a email vid yesterday and thought they looked pretty cool, so I tried them out. Bar+10s and held it at the chest on the decline bench. Pretty good exercise.
    I was really pressed for time today and only had about an hour before I had to leave for work, hence the short day.

    EDIT: Shoulder is pretty sore now that it had time to stiffen up on me at work Hopefully a hand full of Motrin will do the trick before tommorrows Bench session...
