Warm up: 15 min on a busted elliptical that kept on trying to reset itself. Never again, Bethany YMCA.
The warm up sets felt great. Clean. Each one dipping me lower. The last set I blasted my goal of 3 and got 5, but one of them wasn't super clean, not to the depth I consider to be acceptable, so it was more like 4. I liked the DC, and it proved to me that the weight was hard and heavy. So be it. I got my 225 for 5. I'm getting stronger. I actually have the numbers to prove it now.
This may have been a classic case of Ol' Yeargain poor programming. I'm human, y'all and frankly just dumb and informed enough to hurt myself. These were tough. I had to let out a few grunts and summon my dragon spirit with a couple of "Tseit!!!"'s! 3rd set in they started to feel manageable. 4th hard as fuck. 5th was hard, but I got it.
Straight leg dead lift
I have a feeling that because of my conventional deadlift experience that this lift could get rather heavy. We will see. This felt great and easy.
Great ass exercise.
8 plates + 60lbs
Weighted Ab Crunches
No rest in between.
1 set Pause Wide Grip Pull Ups
10 reps. Swaaaag
1 set Incline Bench Press
155lbs for 5 reps drop set 135lbs for 5
Again, another ridiculously heavy work load day, but so be it. I love what I do.
I finished off with 15 min. on the arc trainer and called it a day.
More Tulsa tonight. Final dress, lots of singing and lots of driving. Wish me luck.
