Squats looked good dude. That was a shit ton of volume.
Pressing 225 last week looked ridiculously easy for you :-)
I was supposed to do a series of singles with 240 yesterday but I didn't train. I got sick. Picked up a virus from one of the kiddos. Feeling a little better today and should be back at it ready for squats Saturday.
Yep...I wasn't ready for squats today. That fever is making it take longer than usual to recovery from my squat/deadlift blast. I'm almost there. I'll do it on Monday along with the new week's overhead pressing and assistance work. Then I'll be all caught up. So today, I just went in and benched my assigned Saturday benches and pressed the assigned presses I was supposed to do in the middle of the last week:
Press: 240X1X7, 185X10...nice heavy work today. I think I may be closing in on a bodyweight press pretty soon but I'm sorta cheating because I'm losing body fat to do it. I feel that with a little more work and time, I will get that 300 press I've been wanting for a while.
--small break to help training partner on his lifts (he's not behind schedule like I am)--
Bench: 380X1X6...no sweat. I like pressing before benching...kinda greases the shoulders and elbows for a little heavier work on the bench. Whenever I've done the other way around, I'm usually too beat to hit a decent press.
What's the best rep range?--Its not worth the argument.
The right answer is...it depends. Sure 5's are great during good times. Lower than 5 is good for peaking and breaking through plateaus. 20-25 is good for rehab. I'm sure there are plenty of other reasons to use different rep ranges at different times in training.

You're both wrong. Low reps are for "bulking" and high reps are for "cutting". Brah.

Where do I find this stuff?
