Tues Aug 15, 2017

DL and squats

150x5
185x5
225x3
245x5
280x5
315x6 (5+)

Squats
240x5x5

Past few days a nightmare. First working sets last Friday the 11th I get a call that gov inspectors are here....grrr. Don't get done with them until 6:15pm on Friday and they came back on Monday. Another late night (got home at 7:30pm) yesterday. Too mentally wiped out to hit anything up the weekend so just worked on the new 4x4's for the pergola above the deck. While not straight lifting I like to think 5 hours on Sat and 7 hours on Sunday was a combination of aerobic, lifting and circuit training all in one.  ;)


Today's lifting went well. Skipped extra sets on DL, which gave me time to get all 5 sets done on squats. The BBB squats, per the calculator, had me with a 10lb increase from 230 - 240. The last few reps on set 4 and 5 were a bit rough but I got them dun.

Oh, and finally at 184 BW. See if I can get to 183 by weeks end (Sunday).

Sounds like a couple rough work days, looks like a good squat/dl day.

Speaking of pergola's. I put this up over the weekend, going to put a 12 or 14 footer across the top front with nice end cuts to make it look better and on the inside do something like the second pic.  In a few months, when the wood dries, I'll stain it all.

Looks like you got it nice and square!
With a frame like that there are so many ways you could go to making it look awesome.
If you haven't thought about it yet you might consider decorative knee braces (that are also functional) as a way of increasing lateral stability. Fairly easy to make with a compound miter saw and a jig saw. Or just buy them, like this one https://www.architecturaldepot.com/BKT16X18X4S.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=832146907&utm_adgroup=42186724945&utm_term=&utm_content=196253803636&utm_device=c&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIw8aJnJDa1QIVxV5-Ch3KJAeNEAQYASABEgIcY_D_BwE&ppcsclkid=dI9MwJ3QkSqK&ppcstrkid=1115274693&ppcsu=xhg7f5djqtopedhcra

This one is kind of cool and it would fit on the main board and add the look for a decorative header. http://www.contractortalk.com/attachments/f4/8166d1201149574-pergola-owen-pergola-knee-braces-2-web.jpg

^This.  You're not always going to be fired up, but doing something is always better than nothing.

Dun.
Started off slow (another guy doing pin presses and the stands were set low) then gathered some momentum. Much better day than yesterday but losing reps rather quickly. Still a good solid lifting session.

Squats tomorrow. Not wanting to jinx myself but I'm really hoping for 8 reps at 255 on squats. That'd be sweet....  :)

Squats

135x5
150x5
185x3
195x5
225x5
255x8 (5+) <--vid below
255x3

225x5

And dun. Was not in the game today. Had another set of gov inspectors show up. Luckily they didn't stay too long but by the time they left it I was already mentally wiped out (auditing a program my boss handles and I know little about it...he's on vaca this week).
I did get my 8 reps but it was tough. Back is still sore from DL on Tues and I only had enough in me to get another set of 3 at 255. By that point even 225 was fricken heavy.

255x8
