So my goal now is to work on my mental block. 405lbs was done but it was added up with smaller plates. As soon as you throw four full plates it’s like a freakin brick wall. I hate it and it’s probably why it just felt blah Monday . So I guess working on 405 and making it an everyday lift for deadlifts. And work on my 230lbs bench to make it an everyday weight. I really struggle with 230lbs but I can almost get couple good reps in with the 225lbs doing singles is pointless but I can get more more in with 225 if I was to reset . My squats I want 340lbs from my current 325lbs . The owner of the gym suggested going to 430lbs with deadlifts then after 430 go for the full 4 plates . Oh I will brake this mental block sometime. I did with my 300lbs squats.
So I just realized that in a competition my three max lifts squats 320lbs , bench 230lbs, 405lbs is a 955lbs grand total . At the body weight of 175lbs would be 297.20 Wilks points . And I don’t think that’s bad for only being 5 months back .
Let’s make it a grand total of 1000lbs .
Deadlifts are getting crazy today I did go for two sets of 10 with 315lbs but fell short of 3 reps . Then my training buddy told me enough for today . Then I did some cable rows and lat pull downs. Tomorrow will be bench 2 sets of 10 with 165lbs and some biceps,triceps and shoulders. Nothing overly heavy yet for the shoulders.
So the gym recently reopened a couple weeks ago and I have slowly getting back to it . Since it’s been 3 months away I figured I’d start off slowly with 4x4 slowly getting to 4x10 for all three lift squats ,deadlifts ( haven’t done them yet ) and bench .today I got my 22 reps in with 165lb for the bench press.but I didn’t get my 6 straight on set 4 for some strange reason without really thinking I racked it on the forth rep . . So I will re visit that next week. For warm ups I did standing pec flies,and lateral raises, set of 10 with the empty bar, set of 4 with 95lbs, 4 reps 135lbs, a rep with 150lbs. Followed up with seated cable flies with 80lbs 3 sets of 10 and cable rows with 8 for three sets of 10. Last Friday I finally manned up and did squats 4x4 with 225lbs and ass to the ground. No really my bar hit the safety bars I was that low . Friday will be 4x5 and some accessory work. All I can say was after my first squat in three and a half months I knew I would be sore the next day! And man three days after I’m still struggling to walk up the stairs and putting my Sox on . But you gotta start somewhere . How is everyone doing with there training
