    Steel Bending
    - (6", 3/16, cold rolled) x 1
    - (5", 3/16, cold rolled) x 1
    - (6", 1/4, hot-galv nail) x 5 -- braced
    - (7", 1/4, cold rolled) x 0 -- braced -- bent it a few degrees
    - (6", 1/4, grade 2 bolt) x 5
    - (7", 1/4, cold rolled) x 0 -- braced -- bent it a few degrees

    Not improving in these very well at all. Four reps is too few, especially for first set, so I'll do the cheated ones up 'til 15 reps or so.

    Steel Bending
    - (6", 3/16, cold rolled) x 1
    - (5", 3/16, cold rolled) x 1 -- Super off-center. one arm was twice the length of the other. Tough bend.

    I've been doing a ton of prehab/rehab work because I'm starting to get some aches/soreness—namely: MRS (foam rolling), X-Band walks, squats with bands around the knee, and dynamic stretching (thanks to Frank Yang's Eric Cressy inspired video).

    10/12/12 — Workout #1

    Front Squats
    - 3 x 25 x 5
    - 125 x 3
    - 205 x 1
    - 245 x 1
    - 2 x 205 x 2
    - 1 x 175 x 3
    Leaning a bit too far forward on these today, I think as an involuntary response to my quad soreness. Switched to crossed arm grip (just in case—for the wrists) and focused on keeping my back straight.
    To emphasize form, I'll make sure to do lower weight triples for volume on these from now on, instead of the usual two reps.

    Sumo Deadlift w/ 2" Deficit and Doubled Monster-Mini Bands
    - 25 x 5
    - 125 x 3
    - 225 x 2
    [added belt]
    - 275 x 1
    [added bands]
    - 10 x 275 x 2
    These felt fantastic.

    - 25 x 8
    - 75 x 3

    Giving my quads a break today. I also feel a bit of pain in the hole that's gotten much better with the prehab/rehab work I'm doing, so this should give it a bit more time to heal.

    Extending the deload because of my hip injury. It still bothers me a bit, but I think if I start again next Monday instead of today I'll be able to squat from the get-go instead of doing just upper body or something like that for a week.

    10/30/12

    Dips
    - 3 x Body Weight x 5
    - 55 x 15
    - 85 x 8
    - 3 x 95 x 8

    Wide-Grip Incline Bench
    - 25 x 8
    - 125 x 5
    - 2 x 145 x 8
    - 145 x 7
    I'm terrible at these—I shake a bit even with light weights. I don't really plan on getting used to these though.
