I love it when a plan starts to come together

Thanks to some tips from Chris Thompson that helped me a great deal with my squat and my hip finally starting to feel a lot better, today’s session was a good one.

** Barbell Squat **
– 55.0 lbs x 10 reps
– 55.0 lbs x 10 reps
– 105.0 lbs x 8 reps
– 155.0 lbs x 5 reps
– 205.0 lbs x 3 reps
– 245.0 lbs x 3 reps
– 295.0 lbs x 2 reps
– 335.0 lbs x 2 reps
– 385.0 lbs x 2 reps
– 425.0 lbs x 2 reps
– 455.0 lbs x 2 reps

Worked up to this weight which was fast, easy and clean as hell. It was a speed set from the word go and the tips that Chris gave me were very helpful for me to be able to maximize how the briefs worked even though they are still the loose ones I am working with, for now. A slight modification in my stance width and foot position was the key to it all.

** Deadlift **
– 135.0 lbs x 2 reps
– 225.0 lbs x 1 rep
– 315.0 lbs x 1 rep
– 405.0 lbs x 1 rep
– 405.0 lbs x 1 rep
– 405.0 lbs x 1 rep
– 405.0 lbs x 1 rep
– 405.0 lbs x 1 rep

Some speed work to work on pop from the floor.

** Glute-Ham Raise **
– 8 reps
– 8 reps
– 8 reps

** Shoulder Width Pulldowns **
– 130.0 lbs x 15 reps
– 130.0 lbs x 15 reps
– 130.0 lbs x 15 reps

Starting to do a little back work daily in the gym with meet prep approaching.

** Single Leg Good Morning **
– 65.0 lbs x 10 reps
– 65.0 lbs x 10 reps
– 65.0 lbs x 10 reps

Happy with today’s session, especially with how light the squat felt. I will be pushing the weight more as weeks go on and when I finally get my new gear (which will fit correctly) I expect even more progress.
