Training Log: Entry 2386
Axle Bench Press
Notes: Was supposed to do 271 for the middle set, but I've been a little lazy with the plate loading. I had 1 more in me on the top set, but butt came off the bench and I didn't want to risk re-tweaking the glute going for an extra rep.
Chins (various grips)
Band pull aparts
Notes: Performed between sets of bench.
Keg clean and press 182
Notes: As much as I want to focus on the circus dumbbell, I haven't even touched a heavy keg and the show is 3 weeks away. Needed to relearn technique on this. First set was ugly, but after that I found my groove. Being able to hit this fatigued in the morning bodes well for day of the show. That said, after this contest, I think I need to get my blood pressure checked. I've been blacking out at the top of overheads, which isn't uncommon in the sport, but is rare for me. I typically hang out at the slightly elevated range, so I'm curious if I dropped down a touch.
DB hammer curls 40
Crucifix hold 15lbs
Notes: Loading pins with 10lb plates, held around the middle. No idea where I stand on this event, but some training is better than none.
General notes: Woke up at 194.4. Still healing, but I'm starting to finally feel some confidence for this contest. Training was really touch and go, but seems to be coming together now.
