Week17 – Day47B – Party

Weight: 188.2 lbs

Busy during lunch so I couldn’t head out to the gym, so I decided leave work a bit earlier and go after.  Gym was insanely packed.  I’ve never seen so many people in a gym at one time.

Squats:  3x5xBar + 5×135 + 3×150 + 2×75 + 1×195 + 1×205 + 1×225 + 3×255 (1)

Couldn’t reach 5 reps.  The reps were very controlled going down.  Maybe TOO controlled, as in I was going a bit too slow.  Ideally, movements should try to be done explosively, but I’m too afraid of increasing stress on the knees if I drop too quickly.

Seated Plate Raises:  3x10x25
Seated Lateral Raise: 3x6x15
Seated DB Shrug + Clean + Half Press:  3x6x15

Shortened rest periods between sets made these harder.

Deadlift: 5×135 + 3×165 + 2×185 + 1×205 + 1×225 + 5×260

I’m still progressing pretty well on these.  The jump from the 225 to 260 may be a bit much, so I should probably re-do the poundage on the ramping warm-up sets.

Dips:  10/8/6
Wide-Grip Pull-ups:  2/1/1

Pull-ups were harder today.  My right shoulder was also not too happy about them.  Dips felt good.  The first set is usually rocky as I try to stabilize my core so I don’t swing during the exercise.
