Another good round of squats an deads, this time with with a modified deadlift routine that didn't make me question my life due to high reps-per-set. Did a bonus 455 with hook grip after as I haven't done much hook grip in a bit. The lift felt good, the thumbs did not, though that's expected.
Bench: 245 3x4, x2, x1.
EZ Bar Curls: 50 2x8.
Pinch grip walks: 25lb plates 2x 30 seconds.
Big bench hits the big stall point. Turns out, I did pretty well this time, hitting 4 reps on the first 3 sets before tiring a bit. No complaints there at all. I'll take the progress gladly. After that, a bit of curling was about all I could handle so I didn't push anything more. Just did some pullups and more grip training beyond that. You won't keep me down forever, pinch grip climbing route!
As noted, my workout cut trimmed by the need to get back to work. As it is, my schedule was all over the place today so I'll take what I can get. No shoulder work as planned but it is what it is. I'll take the rep increases on 200 lbs, though.
Leg day continues to go well. Went for a tiring 445x3 on squats. Deadlifts also went well with 3x3, continuing with the more volume and a bit less weight theory for now. Might need to bump that up a bit as it's not all that far behind my squat right now. Hopefully next week can realize a good bump at the same number of reps.
It's amazing how much time I can squeeze into a skipped bench set, honestly. That and being a bit more time efficient, accessories were had in plentiful amounts in comparison to my typical intensity bench day. I was originally planning for bench to be 245 (3-4)x5 but just knew that 5th rep wasn't happening. I ended up adjusting and going for a weight bump and 3-rep sets which worked out pretty well. Not going to be able to sustain weekly increases like that so I'll probably look at a more intense week next week before taking a break for my vacation week, then starting the routine over. Still, it's definite progress so I'm rather pleased with it.
Apparently I can't put 420 on. First set had me wondering what the hell was going on. Why did those first 3 reps feel that tough? I reracked, hoping to rest a bit and try again. Then I looked. Then I laughed. I could not plate math and had 440 on instead of 420. I adjusted from there and kept going. Not exactly what I'd originally planned but I'll gladly take it.
