Bodyweight bench for 8 reps is great. Is that your new bar? Looks like the black oxide version

Yeah it is.  It's the black zinc with bright zinc bar.  I've been loving it so far.

Bench looked pretty smooth Dave. I agree with Shawn. SS will show some good numbers.

Nice job on your workout yesterday Dave.  8 reps of 200 each on bench and rows is great.  I really like the layout of the JC program and it looks like it agrees with you.

I like your new bar...those Rogue bars are super nice. :)

JC6W
Week 2 Day 3
Weight: 201.4

Squats

255 x MR10 - Got 8 (rep pr)


I had 10 here. Probably could've had 11.  I started feeling like I was going to fall on my face at about rep 7 and after 8 I racked it.  Was instantly pissed at myself for it because of course after I racked it I felt fine.  2 more revenge reps were easy after a couple of minutes. Last March I had 9.5 reps at 235.  Stupid high rep shit ;D

EMOM

3 x 245
3 x 245
3 x 245
3 x 245
3 x 245
3 x 245
3 x 245
3 x 245

Program calls for 8 sets if you get 8 reps on the MR set.  Was thinking of doing all 10 anyway for penance or whatever but ended it at 8.  Pretty wiped out at this point. 

RDL's

8 x 135
8 x 135
8 x 135

Additional Exercises

 :rofl:


uppper tomorrow. Pretty much every set of squats I do from here on out will be a rep pr I believe even if I only get the minimum reps.

Sounds like a tough session Dave. Got in there and got it done though. You'll smash the MR though.
