    -Friday- PR Day

    Pistols: x4, x5, x7, x5, x5

    Bench Press: 118 x5, 140 x3, 160 x2, 185 x1, 215 x1, 220 x1, 235 POUNDs x1 PR

    Conventional Deadlift: 200 x1, 240 x1, 280 x1, 320 x1, 360 x1, 400 POUNDs x1 PR

    Pull Ups: x3, x5, x10, x5

    _________________________
    Got past 230 on Bench Press finally. I realized an error in form. I was tucking my elbows in too much to the point where they were in front of the bar instead of under it. That was holding me back I believe. Videos up soon.

    {------Week 12-----}

    All numbers in pounds.

    ___________________________________



    -Monday-

    Back Squat: 190 x5, 230 x3, 270 x1, 305 x1, 340 x1, 360 x1, 380 x1

    Board Bench Press: 120 x5, 145 x3, 170 x2, 190 x1, 215 x1, 230 POUNDs x1, 220 3 sets of 3

    Pull Ups: x3, x3/ Singles: x 25

    ________________________________________
    First time doing back back squats in over 3 weeks. Decided to go for a PR. I am glad I did. 380 went up fairly decent. Decided to go lighter on Bench press instead doing some heavy triples. Was quite happy pushing 220 for 3 sets of 3. I was struggling doing just one rep not too long ago. For pull ups I did singles, which means; 1 rep then let go of the bar, then repeat. There is no rest period though. I think I might utilize singles more.

    My maxes from last week.





    -Tuesday-

    Back Squat: 190 x5, 230 x3, 270 x1, 305 x1, 340 x1, 360 x1, 380 POUNDs x1

    Bench Press: 120 x5, 140 x3, 160 x2, 185 x1, 215 x1, 220 POUNDs x1, 205 2 sets of 3

    Snatch Grip Deadlift: 190 x1, 240 x1, 270 x1, 305 x1, 325 x1, 345 x1, 360 x1, 380 POUNDs x1

    ____________________________________________
    Really happy today. My plan was to go for 345 pounds on snatch grip deadlifts. 40 pounds above what I expected to do. I really didn't think my Snatch Grip deadlift would only be 20 pounds below my conventional. Plus I used pretty darn good form. Decided to hit 380 again on Back Squats, felt fairly easy, better then yesterday. Really happy about all of this. Maybe I am paranoid but I feel a bit of hip pain resurfacing. I am hoping not but I wouldn't be surprised. We shall see.

    -Thursday-

    Back Squat: 190 x5, 220 x3, 260 x1, 300 x1, 330 x1, 350 POUNDs x1

    Board Bench Press: 120 x5, 145 x3, 165 x1, 190 x1, 210 x1, 225 x1, 235 POUNDs x1

    Pull Ups: 35 singles

    _________________________________________
    My hip pain has returned. Pretty much just as bad as it was before. Was attempted to work up to 370 pounds on squats but I cut it short at 350. 350 felt quite hard. Board Bench Press went well though. Same with pull ups. I am thinking about trying to do squats only 1 time a week.

    Pistols: x5/x5, x8/x8, x15/x15

    Bench Press: 120 x5, 140 x3, 165 x1, 190 x1, 210 x1, 225 x1, 235 x1 POUNDs, 210 x3

    Deficit Deadlifts: 200 x1, 240 x1, 280 x1, 320 x1, 360 x1

    Sumo Deadlift: 400 pounds x1

    ______________________________
    Wasn't planning on doing deficit deadlifts. Did them by accident. Finally realized it right before I attempted 400 pounds. Tried to keep a straighter back and push more with my legs. Couldn't get the weight up with good form. Attempted it like 4 times. Then I switched to sumo, went up fairly easy.

    235 went up a lot easier then last time on the bench. It was sort of a touch and go rep but I was happy with it, felt easy. Didn't do squats as my hips are still bothering me.

    I get hip pain when I squat so I haven't really been able to follow it properly. I like it though from what I have done. Just make sure you are eating plenty and that your technique is good.

    Trying to concentrate good technique and keeping tight during the warm up sets rather then just blowing through them. Happy with my last set on Bench press. Feeling strong all around.

    Pistols felt tough. I was going for 15 reps on the last set on my left leg. Fell over on the 8th rep though lol. Bench Press is progressing well 225 felt easy. Decided to do some conventional deadlifts to work on technique. Was resetting after each rep, no touch and go.

    __________________________________
    Decided against going for a PR on board bench, want to save my energy for tomorrows benching. PR'ed on pistols at 35 reps. 40 singles was brutal on pull ups. Just gotta push myself harder mentally. My body can do more.

    Pump from pull ups.

    Bench Press: 118 x3, 118 x5, 145 x1, 170 x1, 190 x1, 215 x1, 230 x1, 240 POUNDs x1 PERSONAL RECORD!

    _______________________________
    Pretty upset with squats. Still getting hip pain as bad as ever. I tried for 385 regardless but couldn't get it up. Luckily I set up my safety stands, though the bars bent when I dropped the barbell on them. Hit 240 pounds on the bench press. It was a touch and go rep. I am still happy with it. I definitely couldn't have done it a few weeks ago. I am unsure what kind of technique to use when deadlifting. I may start lifting with a partially rounded back from now on, as far as deadlifts go.

    Have no idea where I am going with this program. Happy with bench, everything else is MEH.
