    9.7.09 Bench Day (Cycle 2 Week 3) 5/3/1 Week
    Most of the crew was away today so we had to call off geared bench. Moved my raw bench day up one and Tim and I trained at Retro.
    135x10
    225x8
    345x5
    405x3
    440x7 (HUGE PR!)
    505x1

    Boring But Big
    Bench
    185/5x10 These were tough. Tim and I went back to back. By the 5th set we were gassed and the last few reps were hellacious.

    Shrows
    80/5x10

    Of all things, my biceps feel weak on the bench. Felt solid coming down, felt tight in my back and shoulders, but when touching, I felt my bis struggling to keep up. Need to get more hammer curls in. Strange feeling to have that as the weakness. Overall really happy though. 440x7 was well beyond what I'd hoped to get. I was ready to stop at 5 but said 1 more. 6 went easier than I though so I pushed for the 7th. 7th was work but I got it. Really happy.

    440x7 is crazy! If you don't mind me asking, what are shrows? Keep up the good work!

    I'm sure they have another name but I don't know what it is. It's pretty much a standing shrug and row. I try to touch my elbows behind my back and shrug at the same time. Hell on the lats, upper back, traps, and delts. One of my favorite movements.

    440x7 suh-weet. Matches my PR....deadlift.

    Your liftin'...it aint normal.

    Earlier tonight after training was over I was thinking it was a shame to have the deload week coming after everything has been going so well. 2 hours later and I can't be happier. Laying here at home my shoulders are dead, my triceps feel like death, and I just feel beat, sore, and tired. 7 weeks out from the SSA meet on October 17th. Enough time to get one more cycle of 5/3/1 in and then kill all raw work 2 weeks out. Planned out perfectly.

    9.12.09 Geared Squat
    Another f'd up squat day. Gotta get out of my own head. The less I think the better squatter I become. Unfortunately, I think too friggin much. Not sure of the numbers today. We had to get in and out because we had guys doing meets today. Went in, put on the suit, warmed up, and started hitting squats. Nothing exciting here.

    I understand you on the "too much thinking" stuff. Really loud music to prevent from thinking at all or even messing around (to some extent) with the guys I train with between lifts make sure I dont overthink it.

    9.15.09 Lower Accessory Day
    Wide Grip Straight Leg Deadlifts w/ Blue Band around the neck
    225/4x10

    Blue Band Kickbacks
    4x10

    Abs
    95/4x25

    Did more but for the life of me I can't remember what I did last night. So tired. Someone stole our sled. I have an idea who it is. Had to drop the 5/3/1. I was getting alot stronger raw as evidenced by the log here but my gear lifts (squat especially) weren't moving. I am really going to try to turn off this cycle and just trust and listen to my crew. I'm going to do a deadlift only meet in October because right now it's my absolute best lift. I'd like to see if I can get 775.
