On a new tighter daily schedule starting today as I have a lot of big plans in the works. Deadlift: 425×5,5,5,3. Concentrated on upper body tightness and pull on the bar and returned to cueing that I think makes my pull much stronger, tighter, and more explosive. Only did deadlifts today as I’m in an… Continue reading SS01C-7
Tough session… Took me over an hour just to complete the worksets and after that did not have the energy to do bench press.

I did a thing today. Vlogged about the days training before and after. Listen to me grasping at words. Watch me lift. Hear me say “um” in the full video is ouTube. 225x5x5 bench press. Mostly groove practice and with that new (used) barbell I bought for $10. It’s actually a pretty nice bar with less… Continue reading VLOG: Squat, Bench, Deadlift – SS01C-2
