Weight: 187.6 lbs
Went out for a lunch to a BBQ joint with development team at work to celebrate our major software release. Had a platter of pulled pork with a side of bbq beans and cornbread. Super stuffed!
Squats: 3x5xBar + 5×150 + 3×175 + 1×195 + 3×225
Decided not to go for my real target workweight. Was short on time. Will make an attempt at 5×255 come Monday.
Bench: 3x5x10 + 5×75 + 5×95 + 2×115 + 1×135 + 5/4/3/3/3 x 150 (3)
Stalled on the bench again. This is the third time. I will deload 10% for the next bench workout which means I will do 5×5 at 135 lbs.
Rows: 5×135 + 3×135 + 2×135 + 3x5x160 (1)
Not sure if I want to keep increasing the weights on this as I saw myself lifting my torso quite a bit. I’m moving closer towards doing an upright barbell row rather than a strict bent-over barbell row. I’ll consider this as a stall. Stalling should not only consider failure to achieve a desired number of reps achieved, but also failure to maintain proper technique and form.
Pull-ups: 2×2 + 6×1
Pull-ups weren’t bad. Decided to get to 10 reps total. I was able to do 2 sets of 2 reps. The remaining 6 reps were done 1 set at a time. Doing the dips hit my right chest pretty hard. My unbalanced load on the bench- causing me to work the right chest more- carried over to the dips.
