    I am sure you'll hit the 405 DL soon with how well you're doing currently and playing it safe and stopping where you did was the right thing to do to get there.

    27-Feb-2012 - IF 2012, Week 5, Deads/Back
    Took a week off to regroup - too much shit happening around me.

    Barbell Deadlift:
    135 lb x 5 reps
    225 lb x 3 reps
    275 lb x 3 reps
    315 lb x 1 reps
    335 lb x 4 reps
    315 lb x 5 reps
    I had to scale it back, definitely wasn't ready. Was wearing the wrong shoes too - left the good, flat pair at home on accident.

    Standing Barbell Shoulder Press:
    135 lb x 7 reps
    Got 7 again, felt strong up until the last rep. No 8.

    Parallel-Grip Pull-Up:
    5 reps || weighted || 0 lb
    3 reps || weighted || 25 lb
    6 reps || weighted || 45 lb
    6 reps || weighted || 25 lb
    This.

    Seated Cable Row:
    205 lb x 8 reps
    185 lb x 8 reps
    Still progressing here.

    Fucking sick of seeing people in the gym who lift half of the weight, do a few curls and bench press 3x a week and are huge and lean. Fuck.

    A bit weaker today, but I'm holding on still.

    Barbell Bench Press:
    135 lb x 5 reps
    185 lb x 3 reps
    205 lb x 2 reps
    225 lb x 6 reps
    205 lb x 8 reps
    After the first round of 205, I was certain 230 was a bad idea. I got 6, could've done maybe 7, but it was a challenge. Here I sit, disappointed with 225x6 @ 175lbs.

    Incline Dumbbell Bench Press:
    75 lb x 8 reps
    70 lb x 8 reps
    75 was all right. I was definitely exhausted for this workout, so it wasn't strong.

    Triceps Pushdown:
    80 lb x 8 reps
    80 lb x 8 reps
    Easy sets.

    Dumbbell Bicep Curl:
    45 lb x 8 reps
    45 lb x 8 reps
    I can push it up next week.

    I felt pretty good going into this workout. Lowered squats purposefully, but upped everything else.

    Barbell Squat:
    135 lb x 5 reps
    185 lb x 3 reps
    205 lb x 2 reps
    230 lb x 8 reps
    230 lb x 8 reps
    Lowered the weight a good bit just to make sure my depth was good. It worked.

    Leg Extensions:
    205 lb x 8 reps
    195 lb x 8 reps
    Found a great setting: 6, 4, C woooo.

    Seated Leg Curl:
    160 lb x 8 reps
    150 lb x 8 reps
    Found a great setting for this shit too: 4, 3, F.

    Seated Calf Raise:
    205 lb x 11 reps

    I had a pretty solid diet week - if I can survive the remainder of the weekend, I should be in pretty good shape. It's tough to do so with a wife, since she doesn't get to do much during the week, she always wants to go out on the weekend. That leaves me with a difficult choice in restaurants, etc.

    Work is busy as fuck. I'm becoming lazy at posting, not lifting.

    Barbell Deadlift:
    135 lb x 5 reps
    225 lb x 3 reps
    275 lb x 2 reps
    315 lb x 1 reps
    340 lb x 5 reps
    315 lb x 5 reps
    Nailed 340 this time. Boom.

    Standing Barbell Shoulder Press:
    135 lb x 6 reps
    Douchebag was in the fucking rack doing fucking quarter squats, so I had to hang clean it to start my set.

    Parallel-Grip Pull-Up:
    5 reps || weighted || 0 lb
    3 reps || weighted || 25 lb
    6 reps || weighted || 50 lb
    6 reps || weighted || 25 lb
    +25 has become quite easy.

    Seated Cable Row:
    210 lb x 8 reps
    190 lb x 8 reps
    Way stronger this week than previous, definitely can keep adding weight.

    I do the Fitocracy thing now. Takes far less time to write my entries and since I don't have time for the long palaver these days, it is just easier.

    Look it up, boyee.
