Training Log: Entry 2384
BUILDING THE MONOLITH WORKOUT 2
Texas Power Bar touch and go Deadlift
5x380 (straps from here out)
Notes: Pulled my left hamstring on the second warm-up set, so everything after that was hell and my starting position was all jacked up. Still sore from Monday, so something I had to work around. Might be more dilligent with recover, or see if I adapt.
Notes: This is a planned program deviation. Rather than doing the 5x5, I'm sticking with traditional 5/3/1 with a FSL AMRAP. This has been working incredibly well for my bench, and for the first time in about a decade it's finally moving upward, so I'm not messing with success. I might compensate for the lacking volume with my conditioning work.
DB curls 40
Hammer curls 40
DB rows 105
Notes: The rows are really what got me in the end. Kept feeling like I was going to puke.
General notes: Woke up at 194.8. Got the workout done in just under 60 minutes. I took video again and will upload tomorrow, but the strategy was Deadlift-curl-bench repeat. It timed out that the deadlifts and bench both finished at the same time, so after that I knocked out 2 remaining sets of curls and the 5 sets of rows while cleaning up the bench and deadlift bars. Wasn't moving qutie as fast today as I was on Monday, but with this being a day of much heavier weight moved on all lifts it was a necessary precaution.
Diet is remaining on point for now.
Worth noting that I realized I calculated my deadlift training max for this program using a PM PR and I'm training in the AM. Not a smart move, but we'll see what happens. I am supposed to challenge myself here, and I think I'm doing that.
