oh Lord I'm getting tired,  pretty sure I'm going to deload next week, especially so my elbows can heal a little....and my lower back.  I went really lite...light...hmm....on Dl's and my lower back tightened up on 225, so definitely time for a break.

BOR BB Rows:
135x16
225x16
315x12
345x8 (that's some heavy ass weight)
225x12

DL's:
135x8
225x8
315x6 - phuck it...lower backs hurting I'm done here.


Cable wide grip pull downs- I love these after DL's bc they help stretch my back out again.
180x16
210x10
225x10
250x10/200x10/150x10/100x16 (super drop set, rest is for the weak!!)

What's funny is what really hurts after the 250 are the callouses on my hands bc I don't use straps here so they get squashed in half and start hurting like a bitch and by the time the super drop set is done my forearms are screaming)

Facepulls---IDK what weight....I hate these things, never cared for them, did 2 sets and moved on.

Seated bilateral row-
180x8x3-  just went light and took it easy here, lower back was still tense and I was drained today.  Been  hitting it really hard 5 days a week for the past 7 weeks, I think my CNS it aching for a break.

That's probably why my lower back tightened up so quick. I do them Pendlay style, bent way over so I'm working my lats and not standing up leveraging the weight, but I puts a lot of stain on my lower back to hold that position

Pounding out some serious weight!
Throwing in a deload every once in a while is a good thing.

Tried those sumo's you talked about.  Woof! Felt way different than conventional but in a good way. I'm going to keep using them for a while.

Awesome man,  I'm still getting used to them too. I think in the end it'll pay off to add some serious plates on the bar.

Shoulder day:
Went fairly easy today since my right shoulder has been acting up.  I'm dropping chest tomorrow and hitting arms and hoping that will help my shoulder out a little.
BB OHP:
135x8
185x6
225x2
225x2
155x8

Rear delt rows:
30x16
35x16
40x16
45x16
50x16

Shrugs (PWO)
270x24

450x8x5
270x24

DB laterals:
25x8
30x8
35x8
40x8
45x8

My shoulder pain is really odd, I can only feel it when I move a certain way. Didn't feel it at all during my shoulder workout, but I also limited my presses to just one exercise purposefully.

Thanks sakustoms!

Leg day:
Went light today since my lower back has been getting tight real quickly.

Squats:
warm up-135x16x2
Narrow stance:255x8x2
Regular stance: 315x8x2
Sumo Stance: 225x8
                     255x8
my partner was late and behind in sets so I did a few more narrow at light weight bc I am really liking them
Narrow stance-225x8x4

10 sets all together, what sucks is my legs felt great, it's my lower back that's holding me back.  I'll be taking the next week off DL's and letting my lower back heal a little more bc I really want to hit my legs more.

Leg Extentions:
180x16
255x12x3


Donkey calf raise:
400x20x6


My glute is feeling a lot better now, so next week I'll start putting ham string work back into my routine.

^^^Thanks sakustoms!

Monday=int'l Chest day!

Flat bench-325x5x5....holy crap sets 4 and 5 were heavy as hell.  Will probably stick here next week since there's no available micro plates.

Slight incline DBL
100x8
120x6
120x6

high-low cable fly's:
60x16
80x8
90x8 

Hammer strength wide grip (PWO):
180x12
270x8
360x6
270x8
270x8/180x8/90x16

Great workout,  right shoulder is a little sore, that combined with my lower back tightening up easily = a  fairly light week on all other lifts this week.

I think all 5 sets would be heavy as hell for most folks.  That's awesome lifting there!
