Squaterday

Not a great day in the squat rack.  Felt like an old man this morning.  Knees and hip were achy and my lower back felt about as strong as an over-cooked lasagna noodle.

Kept pushing myself to go heavier regardless, and although I did way more singles and triples than I would have liked, I managed to get up to 455, so not too bad in the end.  All reps on all sets balls to the floor with a pause at the bottom (no bouncing out of the hole).

Got to the gym a few minues later than usual and I spend a long time in the rack, so I had to cut back the sets on the hams and calves.

I'm starting to enjoying stacking-out the machines in my gym.  feelsgoodman.

Strong singles in the rack, I can't imagine holding the pause ATG with 455 on there!

<--always uses straps when doing heavy back movements.  Grip fail is a shitty excuse to not properly stimulate your back muscles, and IDGAF if someone thinks I'm being a puss by using straps on the pulldown machine.  Seen a lot of strength/size improvements since I started doing that and took the grip strength out of the equation.

Based on your log I'm thinking about increasing my volume a bit.  Good stuff.

I used to always use straps for eveything on back.

I thnk now the only thing I'd use them for would be barbells rows and I haven't doen them in a while.

It's rare that my grip fails on anything else.

Delts & Triceps

No work today so I did and early afternoon workout.  I think everyone else and their brother had that plan too because the gym was packed.  Never seen it so busy.  Had a good one though.  Solid performance overall, although I was moving slow and Lisa was finished her workout way before me so I skipped the rear delts.  Not worried about that though.

145 x 3

170 x 0 - Thankfully Lisa was spotting me.  Got this about 3/4 of the way up then it wouldn't move any further

^^^  Overall very happy with these today and no issues with my right shoulder.

Supposed to be warm tomorrow and I have my kids for the weekend since it's Easter so I may bail on the gym and do deadlifts in the garage.

Fresh air, loud tunes, chalk flying and maybe a 500lb DL.  Sounds like a good way to spend a Saturday to me.  :)

Happy Good Friday, kids.  :D

We went to a real park but it was too busy to run the trucks, so we went to another one, and there was like a BMX bike track there and we ran the cars and it was a freakin blast.  I killed mine though.  Mad jumps.  Like 5-6 ft of air.  SRS.  Off to the hobby store tomorrow for parts....
