Catching Up

Monday's workout began like most other Monday workouts of late...with seated deadlifts. I have a long way to go in this event if I want to be competitive. I don't like doing too many reps per set, for pain reasons, so I usually keep it low rep, heavy weight. So my sets went like this:

135x10 (warmup)

185x5 (warmup)

225x4

315x2

365x2

405x2

455x2

495x2

545x1

550x3

Followed up with 4x8 of heavy lat pulldowns and 4x10 of pulldowns on the hammer strength machine.


Tuesday (yesterday) was my heavy bench day. I usually do my percentage work on Tuesdays and heavy work on Saturdays. Since I was by myself this past Saturday, I decided to do my percentage work then, and do my heavy work yesterday. My numbers looked like this:

135x13x2

185x5

225x5

275x3

315x2

365x2

385x2

405x2

405x8 in the Phoenix

405x2

I was short on time after this, so I did 4x10 on the wide grip seated rows. I have been trying to do something for my back everyday. I will do more bench accessory work later in the week.
