    Good work listening to your body and training around it.

    Even for an off day, strong work.

    I can't even begin to imagine the feeling of 620lbs on the back.

    Thursday
    09.05.13

    Deadlift
    135x10
    135x10...5xconventional, 5xsumo
    225x5...sumo
    225x5...conventional
    315x5
    405x3
    495x1
    540x5
    610x3
    680x2
    Drop sets...
    625+110lbs of chain for 1
    500x10 off a 2" deficit with straps

    Front squats w/SSB
    150x5
    240x5
    330x5

    Barbell shrugs
    135x20
    225x10
    315/3x10

    Done...Not the day I was looking for, but still a decent day. My goal was to triple 680, but I was having some serious grip issues. The bar kept rolling out of my hands and it made the first two reps uncomfortable. So I decided to stop at 2 and do a couple drop sets. I'm not exactly sure how much the weight was at the top, because I normally hook the chains at the end of the bar. There was so much weight at the end, the bar was bending hard, lol. Next time I'll figure a different way to setup the chains. The last set off a deficit was tough. I had to throw the straps on because I tore some skin off my finger and it was bleeding pretty good. Next week will probably be my last heavy deadlift, which will probably be an opener and 2nd attempt.

    Done...Not sure why I decided to press heavy today, but things were feeling good so I went for it. I'm pretty sure it's an all-time PR for me, and I'm excited about it. I'm close to my goal which is to press over 300 by the end of this year. I'll keep it light the rest of this meet cycle. I'll just focus on rep work, but I will keep it going.

    290lbs overhead is a terrific accomplishment, Bri!

    I'm sure 300 will fall soon enough, too.

    Nice shoulder press. I'm going to try 315 overhead sometime in the near future. Most I ever did was 285 but have been a lot stronger on shoulder pressing since then just haven't done a heavy single with a barbell.

    Also I think you could pull 750 or so at the meet.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Also I think you could pull 750 or so at the meet.
    Thanks April!

    300x3
    Added belt:

    425x3...PR

    DB rows:
    80/2x15

    70/3x15

    Barbell shrugs:

    Done...I decided to stick with my original plan of attack when I started this cycle. Which was pull my triples and the my 2nd attempt. The reason I missed 655 was because I forgot to put a 25 on one side, lol. So I slapped the quarter on, hit some ammonia, then pulled a very hard triple. That mis-load messed me up, lol. Next week I'll pull some 5's and then my last week will be my opener.
