Past two days of lifting have been good.
February 24, 2012 - Squat
21" Front Box Squats
405x5 PR+2 reps
Cable Hip Belt Squats
Glute Ham Raises
25 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Squatting felt good. Really pleased to get 405 for five. I was thinking of doing leg press but figured I'd try the warm-up thing for cable hip belt squats and it worked for them as well. Felt it was better to do my week of 8's for them and decide from there. Felt good for a little more. Glute hams continue to improve but not yet at the point I want to be yet with them. Lots of stretching for my legs.
February 25, 2012 - Press
12” Log Strict Presses
Swiss Bar Incline Bench Presses
245x8 PR+2 reps
260x4 (+1 forced) PR+5lbs & 2 reps
EZ Curl Bar Skull Crushers
27 Minutes of Stretching
Comments: Felt better than last week going in to this workout. 220lbs felt better than last time. Tough but not like oh crap, this next set will be horrible tough. 250lbs flew up on the first rep, surprising me and I got out of position on the second rep so I wasted a lot of energy. Manged to get things sorted and got a third rep but nothing for any more reps. Incline went really well. It started out feeling off so I did triples instead of singles to warm-up. Good decision. Crushed my PR from last week. Getting better. Upped the weight quite a bit on skull crushers. Quite challenging, first set felt awful but my joints warmed up for the following sets. Feeling good.
