8/4/14
Squats (Heavy duty EFS sleeves)
480
500
540

Hack Squats:
360x8x4

Extensions:

Felt sick this day so did the best could do. No real reason for this workout and was kind of a waste of time.

8/5/14

Bench:
315x5x5

Hammer incline:
3x12

Pec deck:
3x12

Again a crappy feeling day. Not sick enough to miss work but enough to not want to be there. Reps were touch and go and kind of sloppy.

Deads (fusion):
650
720
750 miss

BORS:
225x8x3

pulldowns:
12x3

First day in suit and not so good. Have put on over 10lbs and was super tight. Could not take in a breath before pulling so really didn't have a chance @ 750 and the 720 was just gutted out. Hopefully lose some fat this week and feel more comfortable next week.

Deads (fusion);
665
735
785 miss about 12" off ground
685

BORS:
315x5x2 (loose form)


The 785 was just to feel weight in my hand. This is the most I have every actually gotten off the floor. Felt heavy but within the realm of possibility....in the next year not the Olympia. Have no misconceptions about Olympia as far as where I will end up in the Wilkes. Like to finish in the top half but unlikely. With that said reevaluating reality of my 771-77 goal. If goes as planned 760-66 is about the top end.

A technical issue in suit. Having trouble figuring out how to breath properly in my suit. Raw I attack the bar, roll it back, and during the roll back take in a huge breath and pull. In Fusion can not do that because too tight when I am squatting and can't get a breath during roll. Taking breath @ top and getting to bar I run out of air. The reason I run out is b/c even @ the top can not take in a huge breath. Hoping losing 5lbs will solve it but still not sure when the best part of the lift would be to get that big breath.

08/18/14

Bench (paused)
285x3
315x3
330x3
345x2
315x5x2 (few reps T&G)
225x10x2 T&G

This was a bad workout. Every rep seemed like a struggle. Really hoped to go 360x2 but that wasn't happening. Bench is frustrating, not sure what to do. Want to get it to 402 by World's or at least have a shot. Seems like 390 is my top end on a great day. That would be fine if I could cut 181 but not so good @220.

Deads (Fusion)
600
700
745
770 (missed @ lockout/hips)

Pulldowns
3x10

Seated Rows
3x10

Machine rows
3x10

Machine Curls
3x12

Machine preacher curls
3x12

The 770 was close but definitely not close to a good lift. Felt pretty good about effort. Last week 785 was the most I have gotten of the ground. The 770 was the most have come this close to locking out. Having trouble breathing. Run out of breath @ top. Think b/c have put weight on my gut. It pushes up on my diaphragm in the suit. Bad thing really not that heavy so the weight is bad weight. Think if I can lose 3lbs breathing issues will resolve a good bit. Two more heavy weeks of pulling. Hope to get 795 off the deck next week and 775 as close as I did today the following. Then my opener and second for good pulls final week. Have no misconception of where I will end up in this lineup but I believe in goals. My goal is to out Wilkes Steve Goggins. I think a 760ish pull will give the possibility and think that is doable. Say that with respect to Goggin's not cockiness.

Deads (Fusion)
615 (raw)
675
745
790 (missed a bit more the last week 785)

The 745 felt solid but 790 felt much harder then expected and almost passed out, saw stars and noise became muffled.

Squats (raw bare knees)
480
500
515
530
545

Felt really good about 515 and 530 until watched video. Thought I had dropped it about 1/2" below = but was actually that much above =. On the 545 thought I was a bit higher but actually hit depth on that one. Pretty happy but disappointed have such trouble judging depth when under the bar. Think I was good for 560 strength wise.
