i got the 265 but i had a spot on the lock out. i only had 2 eggs and a muffin before working out because i was in a rush so i felt hungry by the time i got to the gym. other than that it was a good work out. i just felt kind of weak the entire work out. diet is going well, but its taking a toll on my strength.

leg day:

squats
bar warm up
135x warm up
185x10
225x5
275x5
295x5

wide stance squat
135x8

175x5

seated leg curls
210x8

240x8


i took squats to the box for depth purposes. this hindered the amount of weight i could do because i have been relying on speed to snap out of the hole, which probably also attributed with some of the problems i have been having, but i can't go fast with the box. i have been working on my form and i am still finding issues. i have been leaning forward giving me the feeling of going deep enough when i am not going deep enough. i have also been popping out of the hole, in a good morning fashion, rather pushing through which explains the increased back pain i've had lately. so i know now that the 315 i did a couple weeks ago was not to depth, so i backed off the weight a bit so i could work on moving up again. i have one more training session before i try and max out.
all in all it was good workout. i am currently not feeling any back pain just some tightness but that is to be expected with squats.

i wanted a cardio and abs day but i couldn't stand to do anymore cardio. i really do not like the tread mill but the ellipticals there suck. so i threw some bi work since they suck and could always use work!
i think i may be down to about 217, yeah some loss, 19 more to go!

back:

deadlift
135x10, SLDL for warm up
225x10
275x3
315x3
365x3
385x3
405x2

bent rows
135x8
155x8
175x8

some back machine, lat pull down thing
90 a side 3 sets for 6-8 reps

it was decent day today. i think if i would have skipped the 385 set i would have pulled more on the 405, maybe 1-2 more reps. this is cool because this is my old max and to pull it even for 2 is pretty cool. i looked back to the MD powerlifting site and it turns out my last dead was 405 and not 425, so its a pathetic lift, but at the same time i am showing some pretty decent progress. so if i keep at with this pace i may even hit 500 by the time the meet rolls around.
i took so long on the deadlift that i kind of ran out of time, also i did deads a day earlier because now my whole weekend starting tomorrow is getting booked, i guess its a good thing, smeh.

leg day:

I was taking it a bit easy today. i just wanted to do some reps but nothing too serious. i got up to a single of 335. next week i will try and max out so i can set a routine up around that max. with the 335 going up pretty easy i think i have 365 in me. i had someone spot checking me on depth.
even if i hit 355 for now i don't think i have plateaued there, i still feel i can 400 before the year is out.

i am guesstimating my weight to be around 210. i hope to get my real weight next week and take some videos of my max attempts!

well i moved this past weekend so no time for training.

i did get into the gym to max out a bit.

squat:355
well this didn't go as good as i thought it would. i videoed the lift and felt i had 20 lbs in me but my depth started to go higher with every max attempt. so i will keep it here for now and use this for my percentages for the summer work outs

bench:315
this went well. i almost didn't even try because it was late and there wasn't really anyone in the gym to spot me.

dead lift:435
this also went well. this is 30lbs over my max 3 months ago. i also videoed this, i will post videos some time this week.

so now i have my numbers for the summer and hopefully my workouts will become a little more organized. i weighed myself at the beginning of the move over the weekend, and i weighed 210. but now i have been on vacation for a week, i am sure things have changed. i looking for a gym this week, and hopefully by the end of the week i will ramp it right back up.

275x5

bench
135xwarm up
185x5
205x5
225x5

deadlift
135xwarm up
225x5
275x5
315x5
365x4, i was gassed at this point


so it was my first day in the new gym. i am going to a bally's now, cringe Cry. i wanted to get a work out in, because it has been about 2 weeks since my last real work out. i am feeling the bulge right now. but i am optimistic about the diet this time around, it was going pretty well for a couple weeks. i will have to get the cardio in this time. the only up side is that balleys has a shit ton of cardio equipment for me to complain about so maybe i will find the one that will magically make the fay go away!
man every squat felt heavy.
i was trying some set ups with the bench so i wanted to move ok weight, well for me.
i was tired, and wanted to get them done. the gym was hot and i only got 3 hours of sleep, so blah.

well from here i stopped, this balleys sucked. so i cancelled my membership and will start a near by Y next monday. so this is a hitch in the plans but at least the Y will have decent equipment.
i finally weighed myself, and i am back to 220. i have 24 weeks roughly before the next competition so i hopefully will be able to lose the weight.

Good plan.  You would eventually get thrown out of the Bally's anyway.   Grin

i don't guys find me as intimidating as they do you, so i think i would flown under the radar!

even though they have already told me they do not allow chalk at the Y, but i will just bring bags of it in my pockets until i am invited to leave!

well it was the first day in the new gym. it was ok, it will get the job done, but i will have to figure out my new flow i guess. it felt fast paced today, i got everything done in about an hour and i felt fresh so maybe some time off did me well. the only lift that was shit was the shoulder press, i failed on 135, i was pretty disappointed.
all the cables and machines had numbers but no weight markings, so i will either have to figure out what they are in lbs or remember the numbers.
