    My Strength and Power Journal

    I'm starting a new routine. It is based around olympic and powerlifting. Here's the plan-

    Monday- Deadlift/Clean
    Wednesday- Bench Press
    Friday- Squat/Clean

    I am going to pyramid up to a max set of 4-6 on the main exercises. My goals are to put on some solid muscle, drop bodyfat, and up my strength and power. First workout will be today, with Bench Press.

    TRAINING

    Bench Press

    Bench Press-
    45X10
    135X8
    185X5
    225X2
    245X4 (!)

    Good sets. I might have had a LITTLE fingertip assistance on the last rep with 245, but shhhh, don't tell anyone.

    CG Bench Press-
    185X 5 (2)
    135X10

    Good sets, really felt em in my triceps.

    Push Presses-
    135X8
    160X3 (2)

    These sucked. The thing is my left bicep started acting up, and I had NO control of the negative portion, or otherwise these would have been a lot higher.

    Hammer Curls-
    25'sX10 (3)

    I decided that the possible cause for the bicep troubles have been due to a possible muscle inbalance. So, I decided to start working my biceps directly to hopefully solve the problem. We'll see how things work out.

    GENERAL

    Sleep- 8 broken hours

    Diet- Bleh, not good at all. Calories are way too low.

    Workout rating- 7/10
