Saturday – Leg Workout

  • High Bar Box Squat (w/o belt, 14″ box)
    • 135 lbs x 7 reps
    • 205 lbs x 5 reps
    • 245 lbs x 3 reps
    • 285 lbs x 3 reps*

Comments:

* I missed the third rep in that I didn’t go all the way down to the box. I felt a little tired this week, had sore shoulders, and felt a slight pull in my lower back on the left side. If I was at my best I might have been able to complete all three reps. Nevertheless, this is a new personal best for me. The last time I peaked out was at 275 lbs for 3 reps. I also have the option of losing the box and continue with a regular high bar squat to reach a heavier weight.

Wednesday – Pull Workout

  • Power Clean (w/o straps)
    • 135 lbs x 3 reps
    • 185 lbs, 5 sets x 3 reps*
  • Weighted Chin-up (BW = 191 lbs)
    • 22.5 lbs, 3 sets x 7 reps
  • Barbell Cheat Curl
    • 140 lbs, 3 sets x 7 reps

Comments:

* I failed on the 2nd rep of the first set and the third rep of the fifth set however, I was still able to manage to do three reps on each set. I believe my focus was off today and the power clean is definitely a movement you can’t perform while you are day dreaming.
