So after the car crash, I was a little shaken up for a while. And actually pretty sad that I didn't have my car anymore. I guess I sort of had an emotional attachment to it in a way. I'm going to miss it. I turned all that fear, anger, and despair into an undying fire in my body that would fuel my workout on Sunday for BACK!
Deads: 405: 5 425: 5,4
Another PR on Deadlifts!! That last set was brutal. The first two reps were not smooth at all, and with that much weight I felt like I should have just thrown in the towel. But I wouldn't let myself. I managed to squeeze 2 more out of it,and that made me damn happy.
U BB rows: 235: 8,8,8 240: 8
Last week, 235 felt a little tough, but I was ready to own that weight. That weight was going to get in my way anymore. It was going to be my bitch. I controlled that weight, and said goodbye to it and hello to 240 at the end. Another PR, and a new hill to climb.
T Bar rows: 145: 10 165: 8 175: 8 180: 8
I kept the weight pretty similar on this one, cause its a new exercise for me and I want to really really make sure I get the whole mind muscle connection down before I start trying to pile on the weight.
Pulldowns: 235: 8 240: 8 245: 8,8
Another PR on Pulldowns. They felt great, I was really locked in on this one.
Rack chins: BW: 10, 10, 8
This is a new one for me, I got it from my main source of influence right now, Layne Norton. I know Skeptic will appreciate this. Basically, you get a smith machine, bring the bar to chest level and set up a decline bench in front of the machine about 3 feet away. But your feet on the high part of the decline bench, take a wide grip on the smith bar and you should be hanging horizontally. Now pull your chest up using your lats, squeeze your scapula together, and lower yourself slowly. This hit my lats great! Next week Im going to add a bit of weight on my chest to make it harder.
