Week17 – Day48A – BBQ Stuffed

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
Dips:  3/2/2

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.
