Last week's squats and benching.

Combining the squat and bench logs from last week to make room for my LTTS write-up which should be done in a day or so. The weekend away (plus the subsequent recovery) got me a bit behind. This post should get me on track though.

Sun (5/12) was a speed squat day at Eastside. Since a few of our guys are getting ready for a meet, the band tension was high, with an average and strong band. The goal was at least 6 worksets of doubles.

After warming up, I wound up doing 5 doubles at 380 and one single with 420. Everything moved well and I had a feeling that I was going to have a good day at The Compound the next week (spoiler alert, I did)

My favorite moment of the session was when I laid a nasty fart right before unracking the weight on one of the speed sets. Poor paper got a nice snoot full of it and gave me crap about it (so to speak) while I re-racked the bar.

Despite the apparent intense hatred, Paper really likes me... honest.

Monday was a bench day at Apollon. My goal was just to work up raw on a 2 board.

After warm-ups up to 275 full-range, I added the board and went:

315 x 1
356 x 1
385 x 1
405 x 1
425 x miss - got it most of the way up, but just couldn't lock my left elbow.

Finished with some hammer strength chest supported rows.

Sorry to be brief, but my next log post will more then make up for it!
