didn't you give these up awhile back thinking they were not delivering results?

I used to do t-bar rows at my other gym, but not chest supported.  I gave them up because the apparatus was awkward and I kept hurting my back.

Power Friday

Deads were a mixed bag today.  Progression sets were just fine, and I was happy to get 6 reps at 405 on my way up, and locked out 515 again.  But I somehow managed to tweak something in my right forearm.  Lots of pain after that set, so no attempt at 525 today after all, and the backoff sets were teh suck.  Could barely hold onto the bar. Did what I could though.

Had some beastly fun (sort of) on the leg press, getting 10 plates (1,020 lbs including sled weight) per side for 3 sets of 6 reps.

OK start to the week.  Incline barbell presses were not bad.  Struggled with the hundos on dumbbell presses.

Right forearm still sore, so I bailed on the barbell curls and swapped in cable curls instead so I wouldn't aggravate it further.

Squaterday

Another good day in the power cage.  No new ground at the top end, as my left knee was squawking on the heavy stuff, but really happy with the progression sets, and super stoked to get a single at 4 plates with no belt or knee wraps.

Barbell presses were not too bad today, got back to my PR single of 180 with no spotter.  Dumbbell presses were a little off, although I did throw up the 80's for some measly reps for the first time in quite a while.

Power Friday

Holy Fuck!

I dunno what happened today, but I had the most amazing deadlift session ever.  Got 4 plates for EIGHT reps on my way up with no belt, got my first ever double at 5 plates, and maxxed out at 525, which is only 5 lbs less than my best no straps DL ever.

Super goddam happy; and y'all know how rare that is.

Didn't have time to do as much volume on the leg press, but I did pick up 2 reps on the last set at 1,020 lbs.

Honestly more stoked about the double at 5 plates than the 1RM, if you can believe that.
