Back To It

After an unplanned deload week (I took it 100% off, actually, due to what felt like a complete CNS shutdown all week), I got back to it with ME Squat day.

A1. Prehab/Mobility

B1. Squat

8 x 135#
5 x 185#
3 x 225#
1 x 275#
1 x 325#
1 x 360# Seattle PR!

The 360# felt heavy, but my squat was stagnant for a while there, so I'm happy for the small win. All time PR is 375#, so I'm getting it back, slowly but surely...

C1. Push Press

8 x 45#
5 x 95#
3 x 135#
3 x 8 x 165#

D1. 18" Deadlift

8 x 135#
5 x 225#
3 x 315#
4 x 3 x 435#

This was more like 18.5", but who's counting :)

E1.  Ab Fallouts

3 x 8 x bw

F1. Farmer Holds

3 x 30s x 180# per hand                    

Hadn't done the holds in a while so I figured I'd throw them in there at a lighter weight after having done the 18" pulls. These felt pretty good, and wrecked my hands but good.

Overall a good session. Some odd left knee pain going on right now (I can't climb stairs, or stand up with weight on it), which is a bit worrisome, especially 3 weeks from till Raw nationals... I'm hoping Advil and ice fix it up.
