teh d34dZ

Oddball start to the week since I missed Thursday and Friday last week.

Deads were better than last week, but I did pick up a callous file yesterday and fixed up my hands a bit. Grip wasn't 100%, but better than my last session. I will be more diligent going forward maintaining my hands so I can keep progressing, instead of being held back by torn callouses.

Chalk Only, except as noted

135 x 8
225 x 6
275 x 6
315 x 3
315 x 5
365 x 3
365 x 5
405 x 1
405 x 3
435 x 1
435 x 3
455 x 1
475 x 1 - straps
495 x 1 - belt & straps
525 x 1 - belt & straps

And that's it; cutting this one short due to the weather; snow/freezing rain this morning.  Going to take me forever to get to work.

As for the rest of the week I think I will do squatless (leg press based) leg day tomorrow, then shoulders Wednesday, Back & Chest Thursday, and Squats Friday.

Then back to my regular split next week.

Your form is impeccable. Any thoughts on whether the pronated grip vs the parallel or
partially supinated?  I've been doing those alternating arms with parallel grip, but tweaks my
should a little. Think I'll try to mirror your form and grip, see how it feels.
