Week 11 – 5/3/1 – Day 40

Cycle #3

Deadlift:  5×115, 5×140, 3×17 + 5×210, 3×240, 3×270

Lifts felt good.  The triple was definitely a struggle.  Didn’t keep the bar close on the first set.  The business socks are helping a bit.  I might look into investing in some thicker ones to protect my shins better.  I’d rather not have to think about my shins when I’m pulling.

Boring But Big 70%

Squat: 5×135, 3×155 + 10/7/6/4/5 x 195

I wanted to get 10 reps on the first set.  My endurance has definitely improved compared to  my previous BBB squat assistance sessions.  I was pretty gassed by the fourth set.  I rested plenty for the fifth and comfortably cranked 5 out.

Ab Wheel:  10/6/5/4

Squats left me pretty dead at this point.  Core was definitely spent, I couldn’t keep my torso rigid and felt like I was straining my back on the roll out..
