    Power Friday

    Solid day in the gym. Got 515 again at the top end on deads, but also did some solid work on the progressions sets and got up to 475 without the belt.

    Very happy with the deads today.

    Also did some excellent work on the leg press, getting 10 plates per side (1,020 lbs including sled weight) for 8 reps.

    Thanks man. Not as quickly as I would like on certain exercises, but it's nice to be moving some big boy weight on the stuff that I can.

    That would have been a nice post-workout plan for sure.

    Instead I opted for a quick bedroom cardio session with Mrs. FLEX then a protein shake in the car on the way to work... :)

    Power Friday

    Deads were a mixed bag today. Progression sets were just fine, and I was happy to get 6 reps at 405 on my way up, and locked out 515 again. But I somehow managed to tweak something in my right forearm. Lots of pain after that set, so no attempt at 525 today after all, and the backoff sets were teh suck. Could barely hold onto the bar. Did what I could though.

    Had some beastly fun (sort of) on the leg press, getting 10 plates (1,020 lbs including sled weight) per side for 3 sets of 6 reps.

    OK start to the week. Incline barbell presses were not bad. Struggled with the hundos on dumbbell presses.

    Right forearm still sore, so I bailed on the barbell curls and swapped in cable curls instead so I wouldn't aggravate it further.
