    The last thing on my mind after a weak performance is adding more weight and going for a PR. Nice job.

    Today I did Deadlifts conventional, i think ill be sticking with conventional from now on

    Deadlifts
    warmup
    410x1 thought i was going to puke waited a min
    410x1 once again thought chipotle was going to projectile out of my mouth
    410x1 same thing
    waited a bit and loosened my belt to reduce puking reflex, almost might as well have been beltless
    410x3 PR for conventional
    if i was fresh and had my belt one notch tighter it easily could have been 4 or 5 reps

    Rack pulls knee height
    410x2
    460x1

    140x1
    190x1
    230x1
    280x1
    300x1

    Hey man. Good luck with the respectable 1,150 goal! Nice workouts. Curls for the girls is where it's at!

    So how come you are sticking with conventional deads? Which are you stronger with?

    fixation.....sumo deads hurt my hips for a long time after so i dont get to squat as often or as hard as i would like, so i decided to switch to conventional

    im slightly stronger sumo right now, but i think i will beat my Sumo PR with conventional next week most likely

    Ah, fair enough. Sumo hurts my hips too haha. Do you foam roll and stretch them a lot after your pulling sessions? I squat with olympic style though so that allows me to do both. Although I do like doing heavy sprint sessions once in a while, and a heavy sumo day too soon or after that is not possible XD

    yeah i have a foam roller, and a roller stick to really get the inside of my hips. It helps but i decided just to ditch the sumo because it makes me feel unathletic all week for other sports in enjoy.

    took a couple days off for a job interview and celebrating, but i got the job so im pretty pumped!

    Today just tried to get ease back in as my bicep tendonitis has come back but it seems like its from benching heavy how that is agitating it. I really dont even know.

    I heard hammer curls were supposed to help and they did feel pretty good.

    Lower back=fried, should have waited longer after that deadlift session, despite not getting PRs though my squat felt pretty strong, i just need to let my back rest up before my next squat session.

    furstrating day, so i did dbs for my last chest workout to let my tendonitis heal cause barbell flares it up, so today i go to barbell and it hurts again so i shut it down a little early, at least i got some work in though

    135x10
    155x10
    185x10
    205x10 fairly easy but after arms hurt like a bitch

    DB incline
    80'sx10

    Random Chest machines because they dont hurt my arms

    on a positive note though i have finally found a bar position for squats that doesnt flare up the tendonitis so now i just need to let it heal all the way, ie. no more barbell benching for a bit, and i should be over this thing.
