On a positive note Lisa had a great squat session so that was my positive takeaway for the day.  :)

She got two singles at 155, which is only 10 lbs shy of her previous max.  The first one was a tad shallow as she was nervous, so she did it again to better depth.

Because of my comp and our vacations she's not been very consistent since she started lifting again, but now that summer is officially over we are both geting back to regular lifting.

I'm going for a solid push from now until Christmas. 16 weeks....

Hoping to get down to 240ish or less too.

When your doing your Seated OHP, are you using a standard adjustable bench or do you use one of the benches made for, say, db ohp? the one that has the foot pads in front of it? I have been trying to perfect these and am having trouble, I also have difficulty figuring out a correct starting point on these

Did the shoulder give you any grief later on today?

Your nothing spectacular is more spectacular than most...

Exactly how I think for most of your lifts Jim.

That actually just helped me tremendously, we don't have that rack but we have the seat just like that, I can use it in the power rack we have , thanks Jim!

Back & Chest

Getting back into the swing of things today and feeling much better.

Resisted the urge to do barbell bench press (which wasn't easy, especially since Lisa was doing it) and started my quest for domination of the dumbbell rack (to 150+).

Didn't fare as well as I'd hoped, but I did eke out a few reps with the 115s.

Pulldowns

165 x 10
180 x 8
195 x 6
210 x 6
225 x 5
225 x 5
225 x 5

Dumbbell Press

80+ x 10
90+ x 8
100+ x 6
105+ x 5
110+ x 4
115+ x 2
115+ x 1
100+ x 3

^^^ And spent on those....

LifeFitness Incline Press

180 x 6
180 x 6
180 x 6
180 x 6
180 x 6
180 x 6

Atlantis High Cable Row

225 x 6
240 x 6
255 x 6
270 x 6
285 x 6
300 x 6  <-- whole stack

LifeFitness Pec Flye

180 x 8
180 x 8
180 x 8

That's it.

Deadlifts tomorrow; first DL session since my PL Comp...

I'm going to give in to the urge, I'm going to go with powerlifting reps though, slow with pause, I'm thinking that's the best for shoulders

Nice job on the 110' s and 115's flex, I really don't think it will take very long for you to be getting decent reps with those and moving forward rapidly!

Fuck you Bando.  LOL

But seriously I think I will do like 8 weeks DB and 2-3 weeks barbell or some shit like that.  Will see how it goes.


DS: Lisa took a couple vids today of the 110's x 4 and the 115 x 2; totally forgot but will try to post them tonight.

Keep also in mind our DBs are labelled according to PLATE WEIGHT ONLY, so they probably are at least 5 lbs heavier at the 100 and up level.

In other words; the "110" dummbells have  Five 10lb plates and one 5 lb plate on each end.  The posted weight doesn't include the bar and the mouting hardware.

I think it's like an "Old Skool" we are so fucking Hardcore thing.

We're so badass we don't include the weight of the bar.

I dunno...

Well either way, triple digit db's are no joke, and very few can press 115's and higher!
