Deadlifts: 245x5, 275x3, 315x5, 295x3, 275x3, 260x3, 245x3, 230x3, 210x13
Front Squat: 100x5, 130x5, 160x3, 160x5, 160x7, 160x4, 160x6, 160x8
Tried using straps on the front squats today. I was feeling like wrist pain was a limiting factor, messing with my concentration. Anyhow, it wasn't stable - the bar kept swinging out to the left and in the end I just went with my hands. I did wrap my knees lightly though and wore my belt, that helped with not going quite so deep and getting out of the hole. Reps 6,7, and 8 were still hard, and I had to lay on the floor to catch my breath on the 7 and 8 rep sets, but I did it.
So, another week in the can. Let's see what the new training maxes are:
Bench: +10 lbs = 245 lbs
Squat: +10 lbs = 300 lbs
Deadlifts: +10 lbs = 335 lbs
OHP: +10 lbs = 165 lbs
Things are starting to get real now lol. Bench and OHP should be slowing down soon.
