Weight: 186.0 lbs
Nice and succinct work out.
Squats: 3x5xBar + 5×150 + 3×175 + 2×200 + 1×225 + 4×250 (1)
I’m usually aiming for 5 reps on these. Couldn’t get the last rep out. First stall at 250.
Seated Plate Raises: 3x10x25
Seated Lateral Raise: 3x6x15
Seated DB Shrug + Clean + Half Press: 3x6x15
A bit more difficult than last time.
Deadlift: 5×135 + 3×165 + 2×185 + 1×205 + 1×225 + 5×255
Strained low back a bit after the first two sets. The rest of the sets were good. Top set felt strong, didn’t feel like I was rounding the back. Stance was fairly narrow. Kept the bar about halfway point on foot. Having my feet too far forward, I think, has attributed to me rounding my back in the past. Alternating grip on the top set.
Wide-Grip Pull-ups: 2/2/2
I enjoy these shorter post core lift accessories.
Treadmill: 5 minutes – alternating 30 sec. @ 2.8-3.2 spd / 30 sec. @ 5.6-5.9 spd
Didn’t know where the stationary bikes were so I hopped on the treadmill again. Strides felt better. Increased active intervals speed from 5.5 to between 5.6 and 5.9 speeds. Still felt pretty comfortable with this, but then again I only ran for about 5 minutes. Regardless, I enjoy doing intervals much more than steady state running and I think probably healthier for my knees in the long run- less time under impact is always good for me.
