In the interest of completeness in case I ever want to use this Tumblr as my system of record again, the workouts I’ve done lately but failed to post:
bench 5x45 5x65 8x3x85
halting deadlifts 5x95 5x135 5x165
chin ups: test no band: fail; red band: 6, 5, 5
bench was pretty light. i rushed through the first few sets and as a result got sloppy so i tried to focus on controlling the down and really staying in the slot. i think my shoulder will feel fine tomorrow.
i’m pretty sure i’m doing haltings wrong because i didn’t feel it in my glutes or hamstrings at all.
chin ups are improving pretty rapidly, at least as far as bands are concerned.

press 5x45 3x55 2x3x65 1+fx65 2+fx65 fx65 4x3x55
DE bench 10x3x75
took a bigger jump on press than i should have given what a grind 60 was last week, so i went for 8x3 per paulie. first two sets were grinds (but… PRs, i think! EDIT: tied PR. although 2x3x65 is a PR of sorts), then lost it and dropped weight for the last four sets. to be completely honest i must admit that one of the 12 reps at 55 was a push press — by accident — because i was so distracted by the sweet tunes being played on the NYSC sound system.

squat 5x45 5x95 3x135 5x5x160
power clean 3x45 3x65 3x75 3x85 3x90 3x95 1+fx100
what a great night!! squat felt significantly better than last week. triple at 95 and single at 100 were power clean PRs.

bench 2x5x45 5x65 1x80 5x5x90
deadlift* 5x95 5x135 2x175 3x195
neutral grip chin ups on gravitron 5x40 lb assistance 2x2x22lb assistance 2xfx unassisted
bench PR of sorts since i haven’t tried sets of 5 in a while. fifth reps a little uneven but generally weight felt very manageable.
power cage was occupied by an unfriendly dude who really didn’t want to work in so we ended up pulling from the floor. i thought i would have 5 at 195 but a) my back fatigued really quickly and i didn’t feel safe pulling another rep, and b) the hex plates rolled when i deloaded between reps. fuckin’ hex plates.
