Minor Deadlift PR and Some Squatting

26 December 2014

Did some presses and rows on the Smith machine at work, along with a few arm exercises. Better than missing a workout, I guess.

27 December 2014

Squat 135x6, 225x5, 275x3, 315x3, 365x3, 405x3 (belt+wraps), 455x3 (B+W)

I kept the squats pretty light in order to have some energy for the deadlift.

Deadlift 295x1, 365x1, 435x1, 485x1, 525 x fail x 2, 515x1 (PR)

I was supposed to hit 525 and attempted it twice. First time wasn't even close, second time the bar stalled out around mid-shin. By this time I was pretty tired, but I wanted to set at least a symbolic PR for the year, so I tried 515 and it went up. My deadlift training has been spotty this year, so any increase is good, I guess.

Hip thrust 2s x 5 warmup, then three work sets of 5 - still trying to figure out the right weight and form here.

Chest-supported DB row 3s x 8

Ab machine 3s x 8

EZ bar reverse curls with Fat Gripz 3s x 8 - wanted to try out my new toy, it's pretty great.

Thanks, it's always been my weakest lift so I'm happy as long as it keeps improving... even by 5 pounds per year.
