Glad you're feeling a bit better and way to push through it for a good session

Thanks gents. It was rough just getting out of bed this morning. Finished up setting up the room we're using for training tomorrow and said I'm outta here. Laid down for an hour but didn't sleep, just rested.

Monday April 20, 2015

531 Cycle 2, week 3

OHP
45x10
55x5
65x5
80x3
100x5
115x3
125x7.5

SS BP/Chinups
155x3x10/BWx8,5,5

Front delt raise
25x3x10

Cut short the BBB today as I was getting dizzy from the cold and congestion I have. Thought I'd try an isolation exercise or two. Got to 3 sets of 10 on front delt raise and just couldn't go any more. This cold is kicking my ass, although I do feel better than I did Sat or Sun.
Hopefully, I'll feel even better tomorrow for DL.

That's a hell of a workout especially considering you're sick. My shoulders would have up and left with those front raises.  :o

Thanks Eric.
the way my head/throat/body feels today with this cold I'm not sure I'll be doing DLs. If I didn't have to teach a good portion of the class I wouldn't be going into work either.

Wed April 22, 2015

531 Cycle 2, Week 3

DL

135x5
140x5
165x3
205x5
235x3
260x7

Went ahead and did 2 singles at 315 - vid below for the first one

BBB squats
145x5x10 <--upped another 10lbs on BBB squats.

Chest supported machine rows palms in
110x10
180x6
200 (whole stack) x4x4
160x10

Felt a lot better today and decided to tackle deads.  Got 7 reps at 260, which I think is a pr for reps at that weight. Decided to go ahead and do 315, since it's been since Jan that I did it and promised a vid. All in all a good day in the gym.

Way to go Eric :thumbsup:

Glad you were feeling better and pushed for some good lifts
The only person you need to be better than
Is the person you were yesterday

I lift heavy things and put them back down

531 Cycle 2, week 3 <--continuation

BP
110x5
135x5
160x3
200x5
230x3
255x5 <--believe that's a pr for reps at this weight

OHP
75x5x10

Tri kickbacks
20x4x10

Skullcrushers
55?x3x10 <-not exactly sure on the weight. It's a standard curved curl bar that I loaded up 50lbs plate weights on. Guessed at the bar weight of 5lbs but it's a long bar so not sure.

This was a continuation of last weeks 1+ week. Middle son was getting confirmed on Sunday so I had tons of errands to do on Thursday and Friday. Relatives showed up Friday afternoon and we were kept busy entertaining. By Sunday I was wore out and the gym was the last thing on my mind.
230 felt so heavy I wondered if I'd get 255 even once  :o  Having a spotter for the last set helped a lot mentally. Was shooting for at least 3 and got 5.
1+ squats tomorrow.

Congrats on the bench PR..and repping it!!!

Skullcrushers....if it's the EZ curl bar, the one in my gym is about 17lbs.  Unless I'm using a standard Olympic bar, I usually just post up plate weight only (PWO)

It felt good!

Yea, not sure on the bar. It's a ez style but it uses standard plates instead of Olympic weights. Feels a bit more than 5lbs but I doubt it's over 10.

531 Cycle 2, week 3 continuation

Squats
115x5
135x5
145x3
170x5
190x3
210x6

BBB DL
175x5x10

Last day of the 1+ week. Squats didn't quite go as planned, wanted 10 but only got 6 for the last set. Oh well, at least it increases for next time. One of these days I'll break the 300lb barrier and attempt a happy dance.
Think I'll do some back stuff tomorrow and call it good for the rest of the week since I'll be off fishing Thurs-Sunday.
