11-12-2015 Deadlift

My deadlift days are getting weird.  More often I’m finding that the main work takes so much out of me that there’s just not much left in the tank for any kind of assistance work.  At the end of my last work set today I felt faint and light headed as I put everything I…

11-10-2015 Press

Pretty rough morning.  I always hate coming back from a deload because I feel underpowered.  The numbers definitely bear that out.

10-30-2015 Bench

10-29-2015 Deadlift

Today was all about that-there auto regulation.  I was feeling pretty blah, mostly due to soreness in my hams and hips from Tuesday’s squat session.  I really need to go to a M, T – Th, F schedule instead of doing just Tuesday through Friday.  The bummer is that getting in bed early on Sunday…
