I'd suggest you'd try thick bar deadlifts to give your grip something new if you haven't tried them. If the gym you're at has a 2" thick bar try at least a set at the end.

I don't think my gym has any thick bars.  I'll look.  I actually meant to do some grip strength work before I finished that last workout, but I spaced out and forgot.


Saturday April 10

Bench shirt (moderate)


BENCH RAW

95x6
115x6
135x6
155x5
185x3

BENCH (with shirt)
225x3
245x2
245x2
255x2
255x3
260x2
Some touched, most didn't.  I was hoping to do all triples, but I felt a little sloppy and didn't go for a third one if the second one was not great.

BOARD PRESS 2-BOARD (RAW)
185x8/3 sets
185x7

Not the greatest workout but it wasn't terrible.  I was a little loose with the heavy weight, which I didn't like. 

Here's a couple of videos.  I'm not entirely sure about my ass.  I don't think that any of it comes off the bench during the lift, but I'm wondering if enough of it is on the bench to begin with??

255x2 - I think I touched on the second one ---

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZRuxWyji_M" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZRuxWyji_M</a>

260x2 - didn't touch but came close and I probably could have touched ---

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5JVqNNvMHA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5JVqNNvMHA</a>


My bench shirt bit my arms pretty bad.  I'll try to post a pic later!

Saturday April 11
Squat Suit (first time this year)

SQUAT (Raw)

95x5
115x5
135x5
155x5
185x3

SQUATS (Suited)
225x3 (no wraps)
275x3
300x3
315x2
335x1
NONE of these squats were to depth.  I got a little deeper with each set and 335 was maybe just at or above parallel. 
I kinda forgot how painful the suit and wraps are.  It's gonna take a couple weeks to get used to it again.  I was hoping to do front squats or something after I got out of the suit, but I was totally over it at that point.


Tuesday, April 13
Speed Day

BENCH (60-65%)

95x6
115x6
125x6/3 sets
130x6/3 sets

CLEANS (Hang)
95x5/4 sets
I hadn't done these in a few weeks now, and they KICKED MY ASS.  95 pounds... really hard!

WIDE SQUAT (50%)
95x6
125x6/2 sets

SLDL (40%)
95x5
115x5
125x5

GHRS 5x5

Leg Raises 10x3

Hey Billy Baby, it's in Providence RI.  You gonna come up??  We may come down and visit you before then but that would be awesome if you made it to PVD...we'll be there the whole weekend.  Holla!


Thursday April 15
Deadlift (light 65%)

DEADS

89x6
111x6
135x6
155x6
185x6/6 sets
Afterwards, I realized this was prolly a little too light, should have been up at maybe like 205.

SLDL 95 pounds 6x2

GMs 95 pounds 10x2

Leg Raises 10x3

Lat Pull downs negatives 6x3

Hyperextensions 10x3


Friday April 16
Bench Shirt Workout

BENCH (RAW)

95x6
115x6
135x6
155x5
185x2

BENCH (SHIRT)
225x3
245x3 touched on last one.  This was the best set I did all night.
245x3
255x2
260x2
275x1 epic fail, total dump
245x2 toasted

CLOSE GRIPS (RAW)
135x8/ 3 sets
I went for a fourth set but it was a total fail.  Out of gas and pissy.

Not a great workout at all.  I was trying to adjust my foot positioning to get more of my ass on the bench and it was throwing me off.  The shirt was pissing me off too, and it left pretty big bruises and cuts all over my arms. 

I wanted to do a real heavy workout with negatives, but it just wasn't happening last night.  I think I'm gonna try to do a heavy RAW workout this week coming up and then get back to the shirt in two weeks.

It's June 18-20, not sure about the schedule yet.  I thought I was lifting on Sat but maybe Friday now.  It's in Warwick at one of the airport hotels...so it's even closer to you that Providence Smiley

And yes, looking forward to seeing you on the 27th!   Cool

Sunday April 18
Squat Suit

Squat (RAW)

95x6
115x6
135x5
155x5
185x3
205x2

Squats (Suited)
225x3 (no wraps)
275x3
315x3
335x2
335x1
350x1 I got help out of the hole with this one but this is the heaviest I have ever squatted.  SO it's a good start.

I should have done more after the suit work, but I was gassed out, and my back is totally tweeked. I'm gonna have to see the chiro ASAP...it's pretty bad.



Here are a few vids.  I should've posted the 315x3 cuz it was pretty good, but here are the 335 lifts and one raw set.  I'm fairly certain that 335 is to depth....the last single is for sure!

205x2 (RAW)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1NtGyvl8VQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1NtGyvl8VQ</a>

I've done a couple workouts this week... they weren't great.  Mostly speed work, light stuff, accessory stuff.  I've been a little under the weather for the last couple of days.  NOt sure if I am going to bench with the shirt this week...I may opt for a very heavy raw workout instead if I'm feeling up for it.

So totally behind on my log...  Undecided

I managed to squat 355x1 last weekend, even with a stumble on the walkout.  I'd like to see it a little deeper though.

Deadlifted last night... got rack deads 275x3x3 so that wasn't too bad.

Looked pretty close to depth, you should be able to easily get 400 in a few months.

Good work Lori!

That's a very good squat. I don't believe that you would have to go much deeper than that. Three green lights from me. Though not knowing the exact rules of your federation, still good in my book.

I would guess 375-380X1 by the end of summer. When getting to your higher lever of performance, as you know, gains come slower. Though gains none the less. 400X1 early next year and somewhat easily managed. Best of luck.

SWEET thanks guys, I'll take it.   Grin

Been training, just lazy on the log.  Benched in the shirt tonight, it wasn't bad.  I was originally thinking that I would send the shirt in to get tightened after tonight, but now I am having second thoughts.  It's 6 weeks from USPF Nats, and I got a good lift 260x1 tonight.  I'm not sure I wanna fuck with it too much.   Undecided

hahaha I had to read that one a few times to figure out what you were getting at!   NO.  Grin


I'm too lazy to post my workouts, but I benched 260 on Friday, and I got up to 375 on my squat yesterday.

Here's 375x1...I'd like it a little deeper but it's there I think.

LOL it IS a battle cry  Grin

Thanks stella  Kiss

And yes one of them is my hubby, they are all very good friends of mine.  I'm lucky to be able to do those workouts in my garage and round up three guys to wrap me up and spot me!!

I've been training, just lazy with logging.  I deadlifted tonight, used the squat suit.  I'm starting to get much better at deadlifting.  Not great but alot better.  I won't embarass myself anyway.

Too lazy to log the whole workout, but I got up to 365 (sumo).  Pulled the first 365 good and then sucked out on the second one primarily due to some logistical problems I was having at this crap-ass gym that I trained at.  It was a fancy fitness club and had those 8-sided plates that are not good for deadlifting. 

I figured out a couple of things tonight -
-I need deadlift shoes BAD. I'm gonna have to get them this weekend.  I'm not doing well at all with the slippers and ended up deadlifting barefoot tonight, which I didn't like.
-I need to cut my fingernails much shorter.  They're long, and now I have digs up my quads.
-I need to get my squat suit tightened...preferably before I squat on Sunday.'

If I can take care of all that shit and get a couple good workouts in, I hope I'm good for 375+.

I've been SO bad about my journal! I benched and squatted over the weekend. I got my bench shirt tightened and it's TIGHT. Holy cow, it's tight. I couldn't get the bar to touch my chest. It's like breaking in a new shirt all over again. It's going to be a challenge to get that thing going for Nats in three weeks.

And the squat suit is getting tightened this week but I'm less worried about that. I've got the hang of that thing finally...should be able to squat over 350 in competition so I am excited.

Biggest problem I am having right now is my bicep tendons. They are ridiculously sore. They are throbbing right now as I'm sitting here having coffee, and I have to lift tonight.

Breaking out the Icy Hot today and I just hope I can stand it for three weeks.

Thanks guys!  Newmom, definitely hope to see you there! 

Looks like I'll be lifting in the full meet on Saturday June 19 and then somehow coming back for Bench Nationals Sunday June 20...which is ridiculous.  My bicep tendons have been giving me SO much trouble that I think it's possible I'll end up dropping out of bench nats, but we'll see how the full meet goes on Saturday.

I benched Saturday... still can't get my newly-tightened shirt to work. 275 isn't making it all the way down to my chest. We'll give it another go this weekend coming up.

Did a pretty big squat workout last night. With the suit, I did

315x3
335x2
365x1
375x1
385x1

Feeling pretty good about the squat! Here's 385
