Sad to admit, 185 x 6 on incline is not bad for me.

Shoulder felt ok today.

Squaterday

Had a better day than last week in the squat, although it still wasn't spectacular.

Left knee and lower back were squawking, but my right hip and shoulder fine.

I did force myself to do a single at 405 with no belt or wraps, and although it was tough I was glad I did.  Only got up to 455 and not my normal volume, but still not too bad either.

Do you do any cardio warmup before you do your 135 set?

I do a bodyweight squat or two and just hold it for a minute at the bottom while holding onto the rack, then I do a set with just the bar, with long pauses on each rep, then I just load up 135 and go.

Delts & Triceps

Rare Saturday workout today, but I only trained 3 days this past week, and I felt an intense urge to go lift something.

A lot of the times when I do train on Saturday I find it hard to get in the groove, but I had a great workout today; improvements pretty much across the board.

And I got that 170lb behind the head press that I failed on last week.

Been really slacking on the deadlifts lately, so I decided to re-arrange some stuff in the garage today and have myself a little deadlift session.

Was weak as a kitten...only got up to 475 for a single.

Chest & Biceps

Today was our first day working out at our new (earlier) time.  Our gym has gotten considerably busier since we joined, and it's gotten increasingly frustrating for Lisa to get ready for work there after our workouts, and recently she's been cutting her workouts short just to beat the mayhem in the changeroom.

So we've decided to get up earlier to train, then come back home to get ready for work instead of at the gym.  We'll see how that goes.

Felt pretty solid this morning, although I would have been happier with more stamina.  Shoulder played nice so I went a littler heavy on bench press.  Was reasonably happy with the results.
