deadlift day

wanted to see what my max was for 2 reasons.

1) havent tested my deadlift in a while
2) was having a really shitty day so either hit a pr and i could sleep knowing i accomplished something or continue on the overall shitiness of the day.

previous max: 365x1
new max: 425x1

so not a bad increase. will re-calculate my #s for 5/3/1.

then did some abs/low back

messed up my groin running hills, didnt really stretch at all after that squat day and then did a little warmup before i hit the hill.. going take a week or two off from lower until the legs all good.

military press day

worked up to 145x3 supersetted with tbar rows in between sets of 20.

--did a killer drop at the end started with 6 plates on the tbar did 5 reps had my buddy strip a plate and repeated that till it was just one plate then after the 5 reps of one plate threw on 3 plates and did as many as i could. traps and lats were fried after that!--

dumbell flat bench -- set a new goal, going give myself six weeks to get to 100lbs x10

lat pulldowns 4x20 ..  did 2 sets of wide grip then used the close grip handle for 2 sets.. the close grip hits the lats pretty nice.

barbell shrugs 5x20 with 245

then did some abs and low back

got my bodyfat tested at the gym, some dude was there trying to promote his supp store or something so not sure how accurate

6"5 268 at 13%... want to get to around 9 or 10 at somewhere between 270 ..

military press today

worked up to 135 x 5 with 20 reps of semi upright tbar rows between each set.. these blast your traps and upper back.

chins 35.. i suck at these but im really trying to get better at them.

barbell shrugs 5x15 with 225

dips i think i did about 60... suck at these too.

squat day
335x12 -- let out a grunt on the last rep and got a warning from one of the "trainers" at my gym for disturbing one of his clients....  who is just a heavy breathing hipster mess.. even wore those shameful glasses during his workout..

ab wheel 3x10
then went and ran the hill till i threw up <-- great way to train if you don't want to count carbs and deal with all that bullshit.

pelham32 ive done 3 cycles of boring but big,

 i decided to switch up my training , focusing on a muscle each workout instead of doing just full upper and lower ... still going to hit chins every workout, i can only do 4-5 at a time which is pathetic so i want to get that up.

anyway heres my training for the week..

monday march 18th - shoulders

Standing Overhead Press with chins in between
im cutting out heavy pressing until i can do all 5x10 with 135 then i can hit low rep heavy sets, tho personally i like high reps with the press

superset x3 wendler suggested this superset after doing pressing sets to add on size.. it hits them hard
db military press 55lbsx10
rear laterals 25lbsx 15
side raises 25lbs x15

front plate raise 4x12

finished off the workout with some arms super setted with chins


deadlift - worked to 315 for 3. grip needs work

chins - did 30 forgot how many sets it took. think like 7 or 8 sets

kroc rows -

ab wheel 5x10

decided to re-test my 1 rm for bench so i could re program my #s for the next cycle of 5/3/1.
hit 265 but failed on 275. so bench has gone up a fair bit since December (struggled for 185x3)
after did db floor press

50 dips to finish off , took like 3-4 sets to get that.
