531 Cycle 2, Week 2

DL

110x5
140x5
165x3
195x3
220x3
245x3 <-- not happy  >:( lower back was not feeling good/right so did my 3 and no more  :(

BBB squats
135x5x10

Chest supported machine rows
160x10
170x8
180x6
190x4
200 (whole stack) x4x4

BB bi curls <-threw these in cause the bar was there with the weight on it
95x3x10

Must have slept wrong. Back was tight and not feeling the greatest on DL so I hit just 3 on the 3+. Oh well.
Increased the BBB on squats by 15lbs. Got them all and, oddly, they didn't bother my lower back like the DL did.
Still, good day in the gym.

Just went back in the journal a ways.

About the start (2013) I was struggling with 135 for a few reps and now I'm doing 5x10. A couple months later I had a hard time getting 165x2, last week got 185x10. Also, at one point had worked up to 5x5@225.

I do believe that's what called progress...... 8)

It would be outstanding if a year from now I'm doing 185x5x10 or even more for BBB, because that would mean my 531 squats would be above 300.

when you have to borrow a pin from another machine to add a plate to the stack and an old lady yells at you for taking the pin - then you have arrived

You've really come along way and today must have really made you feel accomplished

Thanks guys!
Nice looking back and seeing an increase in lifts. Plus my wife mentioned I'm looking better and might, at some point, actually have a butt, instead of, in her words "a crack below your back"...lol

Thursday April 16, 2015

531 Cycle 2, week 2

BP
135x5
135x5
160x3
190x3
215x3
240x6 <--not happy, wanted 7-8

So, decided to do
205x5x5

DB incline press
45x8,8
50x7,9

SS Tri pushdown/peck dec
80x10; 90x3x8/100x4x8

Was hoping for 7-8 reps on BP at 240. Maybe I might have got them with a spotter, maybe not. 6 rep was a struggle. Bit pissed, and that's why I skipped the BBB today of OHP/DB rows and threw on 205 and did 5x5.
Other than missing my reps it was a good day in the gym.

Are you posting your warm up for BP?  I'm assuming the last 3 sets are your working sets?  If so, 6 is pretty good for your AMRAP
