10 reps of 495

(1) DB incline press 50s

Notes: Definitely need this vacation, as I'm feeling wrecked.  Training everyday is probably part of it, on top of all the stupid workouts I've done.  After vacation, thinking about how I want to come back.  Contemplating doing more of what I was doing before 5/3/1, just to get back to some more strongman stuff. 

Woke up at 195.0.

Training Log: Entry 2355

Prowler w/200lbs loaded
550-600' backwards drag
550-600' high handle push

Notes: Been wanting to do this workout for a while, and figured now was as good a time as any with how sore my legs had been.  Estimating distance, but I live on the end of my street, so I pulled the prowler all the way down and then pushed it back, stopping as long as I needed to get it done.  This was pretty awful.  It's not the heart or lungs (although they sneak up on you) but the legs.  They just don't want to play anymore.  Was tied between calling this the Juggernaut workout or the Sisyphus one, because though it requires you to keep pushing on matter what, stones were the bane of my existence.  Any time a little pebble got under the prowler skis, things got hairy.

Woke up at 197.2.  Feeling some carbs and salt.

GOD IS A BEAST WORKOUT 24 (FINAL OF FIRST CYCLE)

AM WORKOUT

Axle deadlifts
5x136
5x226
1x276 (all double overhand no straps)
10x5x421

Standing ab wheel
4x8

Dips
10x20

Band pull aparts
1x50

Notes: Felt awful this workout.  The state of Montana has been on fire for like 3 weeks now, and the smoke was really bad this morning.  Felt like I was going to puke for most of this, and since my squat workout I haven't been able to bend over enough to tie my shoes, so reaching the axle seemed impossible.  Managed the first 5 sets deadstop, then after that switched to touch and go.  Still supersetting stuff.

Woke up at 195.6.  Cheatmeal yesterday was some Taco Bell.  Crunchwrap supreme, cheesy gordiata crunch and most of a nachos bell grande.

Notes: Most I have benched in a LONG while, and to hit it after so much effort before is pretty awesome.  Really pleased with how this program turned out.  Z presses were a nice change.  Been wanting to use them for a while; think I might try to keep them in rotation.

Woke up at 193.6 this morning.

NG chins
5x10

(1) DB incline press 50s
43+7

Axle rows 136
25+25 w/straps

Notes: That topset press was a pleasant surprise.  I had wondered if I was really growing any stronger with the weight loss, but that was a solid effort, especially after so much work beforehand.  Did supersets of everything else leading up to it.  DB press was almost 50 in one go; something to continue to strive for.  Axle rows were 25 without straps then 25 more.
