Training 9-27-07

Not much to say today. Ready for the weekend.


5 x 5 x 215

3 x 5 x 225
4 x 225
5 x 225

3 x 5 x 245

Pullups (underhand)
3 x 5 x 25
4 x 25
3 x 25

Overhead pull machine
15 x 100
10 x 130
2 x 10 x 120

Squats were good at 215 again. Form was sloppy sometimes, good at others. I'll move up to 225 next time.

I think my problem with Bench Press is mainly psychological. If a rep feels hard and I'm not sure I can get the next one, I convince myself that I can't, so I quit. I need to just go for it. I know that even if I can't complete the rep, I can push it down to my waist and sit up to rack it. 225 again next time, but if I can't get a full 5 x 5, I'll have to deload to 205. If I do get a full 5 x 5, I'll move up to at least 230.

I'll move up on deadlift again next time, too. I'm at a good point where the more weight I add (so far), the more solid my form feels. Let's see how 255 feels next week.

I'm still digging the weighted pullups thing. I'm going to start keeping track of overhand vs underhand on pullups. I want to alternate between the two, and I keep on forgetting which one I did last, so I'll write it down!
