Benches and Squatses and Snatches, Oh My!

It's a two-fer! Forgot to log yesterday.

Saturday was bench day. First ME bench session in 2 months, and mixed it up by trying a new, wider grip. about 3-4" wider, actually. It went pretty well, I think I'll stick with it, I could definitely tell I had a shorter stroke.

Saturday: ME Bench

A1. Hip/Shoulders Mobility/Prehab

B1. Bench

2 x 8 x 45#
8 x 95#
5 x 135#
3 x 185#
2 x 205#
1 x 225#
1 x 245#
1 x 265#

265# isn't a PR, but I'm happy with it after a 2 month layoff.

C1. 1-Arm Row

6 x 4 x 120#/arm      

Did these in a 3-point stance. Made it quite hard.

Sunday was ME Squat day, again for the first time in a month or so. There's video for this one, with some ugly ass snatches in it! Not those kind, you pervs.

Sunday: ME Squat

A1. Hip/Shoulders Mobility/Prehab

B1. Squat

2 x 8 x 45#
8 x 135#
5 x 185#
3 x 225#
2 x 275#
1 x 315#
1 x 335#
1 x 350#

The 315# I went A2G, so it felt horrible. 335# was good depth, and I think the 250# was borderline. I could have gone deeper, and I also think I could have gotten 365#. Neither a PR, but still. Progress.


C1. Snatch

4 x 45#
4 x 85#
4 x 105#
2 x 135#
6 x 1 x 135#                      

SO UGLY. Such bad form on all but maybe the last one, where I realized my belt maybe too tight so I didn't latch it. And it felt way better. Something for next time.

Time for a few days off. Tacky should be arriving soon, and then stone work.
