Bench Press 145 x 4-4-4
Power Clean 85x5x3
Chinups BW x 2-1-1
I'm disappointed with the Bench Press, but I'll nail it on Friday. Power Cleans looked and felt like garbage. I'm working on them, though. I just got a belt (gonna try to use it on Wednesday), and I'm thinking about getting some good shoes.
Press 115 x 3-4-4
1st workout with the belt. Squats went fine, and I didn't really notice it. I should've gotten 4-5 reps on the 1st Press set (it was all mental). I'll get it on Monday. I used the belt and a mixed grip for the Deadlift work set. It actually felt better than 280. I noticed that my lower back was slightly rounded, though, so I need to work on that.
Bench Press 145x3x5
Pullups BW x 1-1-1
Bench Press was harder than I thought it would be. I need to work on keeping my back tight. I'm still not making progress on Pullups. I'm going to change something up.
Press 115 x 4-4-4
Power Clean 95x5x3
Chinups BW x 3-2-2
I'm very disappointed with the Presses. I'll try to eat more this week and give it another go on Friday. Power Cleans weren't much better than last time, formwise. I just need more practice. Chinups went great! Over the weekend, I did a set of Chinups or Pullups every few hours. I'm going to keep doing this.
Bench Press 150x3x5
Squats were pretty difficult. On Bench Press, I took shorter breaths in between reps, and it helped me keep my back tight. I probably could've done a few more Deadlift reps. It feels good to get 3 PR's in one workout. So far, I've been doing all the lifts on carpet in my socks (not ideal, haha). I ordered some WL shoes from Rogue, and they should get here by Friday. I'm also going to make some of kind of platform out of plywood.
Pullups BW x 2-2-2
I have a plywood platform to stand on, now. Squats and Presses went much better than last time. I really felt connected to the floor. On the Press, I also used shorter breaths between reps, and it helped with tightness. My hips started drifting higher on Rows (longer ROM). The Pullups went very well.
Some solid progress on the squats. Keep it up!
Thanks! I think I'll need at least a 350 lb Squat to get in the 1000 lb club. Hopefully, I can reach that while staying on LP.
