    358lb/163kg-1 - Must be a PR. Got my oldest to spot me since he was working out with me. Vid below
    304-5,5, Back offs - Just did 2 sets as I decided to do some incline DB work


    Paused curls (paused mid way for a 2 count) 30-10,10,10,10,

    Incline DB press (50 degree incline) 65's -10,10, paused at bottom to get a good pec stretch

    Ab wheel - 1 set of 20

    My LP is bound to hit a wall soon, especially with bench. Since I don't have any immediate meet plans I am looking at doing Alex Bromley's Bull Mastiff workout plan. At least the name sounds good LOL. Anyone try it? I don't have a leg curl or leg extension machine but can probably substitute something similar.

    The only thing that concerns me is the volume. At my age my joints get sore if I do to much volume, but perhaps at lighter weights it might not be an issue.

    Missed Friday's workout - But - Got a new piece of equipment for the home gym - A combo leg press hack squat machine. This should give me some options for my Friday leg day.

    Programmed and used my new leg press/hack squat machine today. The carriage is very heavy, so heavy in fact that my wife can't even leg press it (not that she's very strong, but still...) much less hack squat it.

    Leg press
    Carriage-10
    50-10
    90-10
    140-10
    180-10
    230-10,10,10,

    Paused Bench - close grip - wasn't into benching today so didn't push too hard
    bar-10
    155-5
    265-2
    309-4,3,3,
    220-10

    Hack squat - still a few settings to determine. The bottom foot pads/back rest has 5 different angle options.
    Carriage-5,5,5, The carriage is heavy enough for now. Will bump the reps higher before adding weight. These are like a sissy squat so they really focus on the quads.

    Incline DB press at 50 degrees - long pause/pec stretch at the bottom
    65's-10
    75's-10,10,10,

    DB curls and ab wheel too.

    Not feeling that great today. I had chicken pox as a kid, and now am susceptical to shingles although I haven't had them in years. Stress brings them on and things have been pretty stressful at work lately so maybe that's it. Had a sore break out over my left eye, saw a doctor and got some anti viral pills. Hopefully goes a way in a few days.

    After the squats didn't move very well I decided to deload the rest of the workout. Probably a good thing since the bench felt way heavier than it should have.
