Great workout today.  After yesterday's workout at Untamed I wasn't sure what to expect today.  In my garage it was nice and cool this morning and I felt strong across the board.  I changed my assistance lift up a bit and instead of doing FSL sets of 5 on decline bench I did 5 sets of 10.  I plan to keep that up with Bench and Squats both and get some hypertrophy work in.

Yesterday morning I completed 531 Push/Pull/Legs (C31_2A) as follows:

Deadlifts   3-135, 3-225, 3-245, 3-265, 3-315, 3x2 @ 355

3" Deficit Deadlifts (FSL)   3x3 @ 265

Superset:
PRows   5-135, 5-155, 2x5 @ 175
Multi-Grip Chins  4x5 @ 20 Pounds (various grips)

Bodyweight: 217.8 Pounds (Down 4.4 pounds from 222.2 on 7/9)

Workout Duration: 40:58.31 mm:ss (with 1:00 rest between sets)

Tough, hot workout at Untamed Strength.  Thankfully it was week 2 of my program, a "5s" week (I'm doing 3/5/1), so my weights weren't too heavy.  They felt heavy though and the heat was draining me.  Instead of hitting 3x4 for my top set as planned, I went with 3x2 instead.  Also, the 1.5" blocks I usually use at Untamed for deficits were being used by someone else so I had to go with the 3" blocks...the FSL weights were very light though so this wasn't a problem.

After my superset of PRows and Chins I was pooped, so I called it a day and skipped curls and back raises.

Good workout today.  The SSB's after the regular squats were a little intimidating going in but felt good once I got going on them.

So what's going on with the back?

PT gave me some stretches that help, but I keep forgetting to do them  :-[

Calendar reminder might help. With so much stuff going and me forgetting half of it I started setting up calendar reminders. Get them on my phone. I've even set them up these past 4 weeks to stretch my torn calf 4 times a day. I'd forget if I didn't.

I didn't know any of the names on the roster for the Strongman, so it was hard to tel where I might place.

This weekend, is just a tough one.

Sabrina's brother is getting married Saturday, I'm needed in Long island for RPS, I was planning to compete in the Strongman, and there's no one to run the store on Sunday.  Plus, my family has been pushing me to visit my Dad more often.  As well, the office is pushing a deadline for Monday, and they asked me this morning, if I could come in over the weekend. 

The office wouldn't be in this predicament, if the lead engineer had done his job.  He doesn't like this particular Architect, so he always sits on his projects until the last minute.  he likes that it causes havoc with the Architect.  and the rest of us suffer.

Tried out the Deadlift Suit last night.  605 was effortless coming off the floor.  unfortunately, I blew out my air just before pulling.  Couldn't keep a tight core, so dropped it when I knew I wouldn't lock it.  proper breathing control and I've got a 650 in me.
