    Thanks, Callador!

    I hear you..peaks are overrated :-)

    I changed the supinated hand on my alternate grip from the right hand to the left and back again on deadlifts today, thinking that it would help balance me out...I dunno. Looking forward to curls again on Friday. It seems the tendinitis around my biceps has creeped up a little higher, but it's only mild. I put on my support strap today before doing pull-ups, which can hurt more than curls. I think as I get more experienced, I'm learning how to deal with injuries better. My shoulder that I was having trouble with is almost totally healed.

    Used a hook grip on 305...pretty painful on the thumbs. I can do it with DOH, but I was just curious how hook grip would feel...must take some getting used to. Alternate on working set, of course.

    Madcow Intermediate Week 2

    Pretty fatigued after Madcow Friday. With the extra volume on the backdown sets, I'm almost 90 minutes into my session before I even get to the assistance lifts. I train on my lunch "hour". I left the office at 11:34 A.M. and didn't get back until 1:53 P.M.

    Squat - Video
    140x5, 175x5, 210x5, 245x5, 290x5, 210x8
    Woops. I was supposed to do a triple on the working set, but I did 5 reps out of habit. I almost got an UNSOLICITED spot, but I showed him...haha.

    Madcow Intermediate Week 3

    With my body fat approaching 18%, I thought I would lower my calories a bit for my recovery (light) day. I only ate 4 eggs (and a banana) this morning, but I nearly ran out of gas on my last set of pull-ups.

    Squat (light)
    145x5, 180x5, 220x5x2

    Press
    95x5, 115x5, 125x5, 145x5

    Deadlift
    225x5, 265x5, 310x5, 360x5
    Woops. I was supposed to do 355 for the working set but didn't notice until after.

    Sit-ups
    3x10

    Pull-ups
    3x10 - not even sure if I should count that last rep of set 3, but I did. I'm usually very strict.

    I usually try to take photos monthly, but it's been a couple. I've been eating very well. Here's the result of the last 2 months:

    Madcow Intermediate Week 3

    I just realized that on Fridays, with the assistance work, the volume is 27 sets.

    Bench
    120x5, 145x5, 175x5, 205x5, 240x3, 175x8
    Surprisingly easy. I still have to baby my shoulder, but I'm learning to deal with it. Ice and rehab work in the evening are common.

    Power Clean

    Weighted Dips

    Madcow Intermediate Week 4

    I mowed the yard yesterday. I didn't wear a mask, and I was up at various hours throughout the night all clogged up. I actually wondered if I had a fever about an hour before my training session. I wasn't very productive at work, but I took some Tylenol, ate my usual 8 eggs, banana and milk, and the training session went just fine. Also on an up note, I think my shoulder might actually be healing. I haven't iced it for a few days and hardly felt it at all during bench :-)

    Squat (matched PR) - Video
    150x5, 185x5, 220x5, 260x5, 295x5

    Bench (matched PR)
    120x5, 150x5, 180x5, 210x5, 240x5
    240 felt harder than I remembered, but I'm certain I was just feeling a bit fatigued, because 210 was very easy, and thinking back on it, I had it in my mind that I was doing 220 instead of 210. I wonder if I loaded the bar wrong? Can't remember.

    Power Clean
    70x5, 85x5, 100x5, 120x5, 135x4, 135x1 (miscounted reps)

    Weighted Hypers
    35x15x2

    Weighted Sit-ups
    10x12x4
