I’ve always had the 5 lbs. mentally but would always go for more if my technique didn’t break

This is where I always fucked up as well. My body was telling me to back off and live to lift another day but my mind was always like, "Are you silly? I'm still gonna send it." Lol. Multiple injuries later, here I am at the same strength level I was 4 years ago.

**shoulder was pretty sensitive post work out. Think on the 315 unrack it was way too far behind me because I got a lift off on 325 and didn’t struggle. Need to start getting hand offs on ME top sets.

I feel weak on those cable upright rows too but strong as shit with free weight. I think it’s just the resistance man. We are both pretty strong dudes. I wish you had a spot to help you on those declines, you could really push for that ME. Im sure that fucks with you a little knowing you have more in the tank, but safety above all, always. I bet the shoulder soreness is from the unracking, it messes with mine in decline without a spot. I haven’t done decline in years. I miss having a HS decline press, those are incredible. Awesome day man, and you made me want chocolate cake so eat a dick

Not having some one to work out with can suck there is no doubt of that. There are times just seeing some ones hands reach for the bar to grab it can drive you enough to get the rep.

I dont know how every one unracks ,, for me its like a forward shrug if that makes sense , like im trying to shoulder block two people , my arms are locked out already and i just bump it out of the hooks with the shrug.

I notice too that using the wrist wraps Trend sent me I can get on the descent a bit quicker with more stability that helps as the weight climbs for sure. I dont have that extra couple seconds with the bar over me making sure my shits all set.

Workout:

Max Effort Lower Body


SSB Parallel Box Squat:

61x3
151x3
241x3
331x2
421x1
511x1 PR

*so apparently the bench that I use for “below parallel” is the same as the bench that I use for “parallel” lol. From the side mirror it looks below and even feels that way, took recording it to see it. Even with a back to the side view from a low angle makes it look high asf. But worked out because I have a PR for that height with this bar. I had done 471 in wraps like a year ago, today was just sleeves. I knew I was stronger when 405 blew off my traps. Will be interesting when straight bar comes back around.

Paused SSB Squat:

151x5
171x5
201x5
221x5
241x5
261x5
281x5

*almost though about going for a 421 pause ;)

1” Deficit Barbell Stiff Leg Deadlift:

135x8
155x8
185x8
205x8
225x8

*these were very gasing but I made sure to really drive the glutes.

Crunch on Pulldown:

4x60x20

*faded haha.

Neutral Grip Chest Supported Row Machine:

50x15
70x15
90x15
110x12
120x10
130x10

*never done these, always went single arm and was getting tired so wanted to get it in quick.


*all in all a pretty good day.

Huge PR man, big congrats on that. What’s up with the increments, your gym have weird weights? Was the 471 the last PR you had for that? That’s a great jump

New PR. And very unexpected. But I knew with how 4 plates flew up I had to go for it. But also would have privacy only went for a slight PR if I knew I had box height issues

Lol. While that is impressive and I congratulate you on the effort. I think you might've missed my joke. You said you had "84 bud light". I figured that you didn't actually mean 84 full cans, but I retyped it that way in bold. Ha. Andre the giant would've liked drinking with you if 84 cans is actually another Friday for you.
