    (1) BENCH PRESS:
    45 x 10
    135 x 10
    225 x 5
    275 x 5
    315 x 5
    335 x 1
    365 x 3
    365 x 2
    315 (paused) x 6

    still weak as shiit. Strength isn't coming back nearly as fast as I'd hope. On top of that I had to lift without my wrist wraps, so I felt more unstable than usual. Would have gotten a rep or two more if I didn't puss out b/c I didn't have a spot.

    (2) HIGH BAR SQUATS:
    45 x 5
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    275 x 3
    315 x 2
    335 x 2
    365 x 2
    385 x 2

    Man, doubles are so much easier. Even mentally, knowing I only have to do 2 reps makes me feel so much more confident.

    (3) CGBP:
    225 x 5
    275 x 3
    315 x 3
    315 x 3
    275 x 4

    My RC started to really kill me and my wrist too w/o the wraps

    (4) TRICEP PUSHDOWNS:
    Rack x 10
    Rack x 10

    Not having a proper spotter is a big problem. Back when I had a regular schedule, that also meant I was in the gym at the busiest time, I had established enough familiarity with the regulars to have someone competent around 9 times out of 10. Now everything is up in the air again and I keep getting burned. It doesn't matter how clear or thorough your instructions are, they do whatever the **** they want.

    srsly I hate when they touch the bar. It's like I need to give them a power point presentation before they spot me.

    What's worse is there's no way to discern who makes a good or a bad spotter. How are you gonna tell, visually, if someone is able to follow instructions? The concept of being there so I don't have to ****ing roll the bar off me is completely lost on everyone, they have to be some active part of my workout all of a sudden.

    Even when I'd tell my spotters clearly what I wanted, they screwed up my sets. I'm really glad I now train at the community gym which is almost always empty. The equipment sucks donkey balls but I have managed to adapt and adjust.

    I think the worst was when this chap came running from the other side of the gym to bro-spot my overhead press. The bar had cleared my head and the rep was slow but smooth. I clearly had control of the bar, but this bro had to push my elbows up and then expected to be thanked. I raged.

    eh I'll keep doing what I am doing until it runs its course, I anticipate I'll get to 385 x 2 and then have to reset. After that maybe I'll do a 5 x 5 thing.

    lulz I like doing like a 20 second pause bench with 315. People usually either panic and leave or try to frantically help lul.

    I definitely feel you on that man. Sometimes I almost feel like I'd rather risk rolling the bar off me and dropping it on the floor than have a spotter... It's silly.

    i hate you and your ridiculous bench strength

    great work on the benching. have you tried different foot positioning to see if a different knee travel would help? usually higher stress on the hips can be caused by toes pointed too far forward.... just my 2 cents but before you try them with heels touching might want to check it out
    Squat: 475 Bench: 355 Dead: 585 Press: 245

    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    lol thanks, I've just been messing around with different foot positions since I assumed it was because my feet were to wide for how low I was going. I will try it out next go around.

    I never liked the way rack pulls felt. Wouldn't be surprised if mine were crap compared to my deads too.

    Nice benching. Whats your all time PR? I'm closing in on 365 finally.

    lol thanks. Srsly, pausing is so freaking draining. I also haven't learned how to keep tight just yet, so essentially 315 is just laying on my chest for about 3 seconds and I press from a dead state. The 355 singles were relatively easy though even though I only took 20 second rest periods.

    Why not go lighter on the paused weight and work your way up?
