Getting back on track after last week’s disaster. I am feeling better, knee is a bit tender but nothing to keep me from a decent week. I will just take it as it comes and not worry too much about new maxes. This week is all about getting back into the groove and feeling it out. I expect some setbacks but nothing that I can’ overcome in the next two weeks.
Monday 7/20/2015 – Squat
320×6 ~ 384 1RM
Better than expected, I just didn’t have it in me for any more reps. The knee was just a bit sensitive at depth and no point in pushing it and hurting it. I let the 6 reps be enough today and will hit it hard next week.
Tuesday 7/21/2015 – Bench
225×10 ~ 300 1RM
This felt better, not quite a PR but not so bad considering the last couple of weeks. Trying to rep more than 8-10 on the heavy set is taxing, I feel strong and the last rep just stops dead. I am not always sure which rep it will be but I push off the chest and a few inches up I am done. The bar comes right back down. Good lift all around and looking forward to next week.
Thursday 7/23/2015 – Press
150×5 ~ 175 1RM
This is about where I expected. My press is my weakest lift and when I take time off it suffers. Definite strength imbalance on the right side but still happy with the lifts. Again, looking forward to next week.
Friday 7/24/2015 – Deadlift
395×5 ~ 461 1RM
This didn’t go well. Not exactly sure what happened but nothing good came out of today. I should have stayed home. Need to reflect on this and figure out where I went wrong. 395 might as well been a ton.
Mixed results this week and being out of town again next week I am not sure where I will be at when i get back. I certainly won’t do any running next week, I learned that lesson. I will have to think about the deadlift and figure out where I went wrong.
