Week 10 – 5/3/1 – Day 35

Cycle #3

I don’t remember my stats, but I think this is a rep PR on the press.  I definitely could have managed a few more reps.

Press:  5×75, 3×85, 4×95

Accidentally did 2 extra reps on the first set.

Boring But Big 70%

Bench Press: 3x10xBar + 5x10x115

My bench felt very strong today.  Managed to bang out all the reps on each set.  I wasn’t tucking my elbows as much.  And I also wasn’t locking out.  I noticed that when I lockout at the top, my shoulder blades naturally protract thereby making me lose tightness in my upper back.

Curls:  3x10x40 + Tricep pushdown:  3x10x35 + Face pull: 3x10x25

Curls were were a bit easier than last time.  Tricep pushdowns were extremely easy.  Face pulls got my anterior delts burning a bit.

Treadmill:  15min at 2.5 speed + max incline.


Week 9 – 5/3/1 – Day 34

Cycle #3

Squat:  5×185, 5×215, 5×245

I had some difficulty with these.  My form seems to be pretty good- bar is no longer moving up onto my traps.  Wrists are buckling sideways a bit though.

Boring But Big 70%

Deadlift:  5/5/4/4/2×205

Used some long formal socks to avoid scraping the knees.  These were heavy.  Couldn’t get to 10 reps on a single set.
