Workouts Of The Week

Jerks felt weak this week, so I got mad and dropped the weight and ended up getting 5 with 115. Everything else went fine. Was finally able to hit the glutes, since I wasn't sore from Saturday's workouts. I really think it's the walking lunges that never fail to get me!

I got a PR today! I decided to up the weight this week on front squats and just see what I could get, and I was able to get 3 reps with 155! This week was a deload from deadlifts, so I just did a couple sets of RDLs and added in reverse hypers.

6b)Ab wheel rollouts on toes to wall: 10/9/9
Sled drags: 5 x 20 seconds

Today's bench felt great! I don't know what is going on. It's like I'll feel really weak on bench for a while, then I stop stressing about it and guess what? I start feeling stronger on it again! I worked up to 125 for 3, which normally I would need a spot for. But it felt strong, so I went ahead and did another set of 3. I moved my hands out a tad bit wider, and it's actually not feeling too bad, so I'm going to try to stick with that.

1)Plyo pushups: 3x5
2)Bench press: 115x4/125x3/125x3/115x6

7)Hammer curls: "Run the rack"-1 set  20, 17.5, 15, 12.5 to 30 reps total

This workout went well. Worked up to 235 on hip thrusts for 8 reps. Added a little more to pause squats and good mornings. Bulgarian split squats were killer as usual, but once again, the hardest thing is breathing! I didn't feel like doing the prowler or sprints, so I finished up with 100 walking lunges(50 per leg), which took me a little under 3 minutes. That wasn't horrible, but I was feeling the quad burn!

1)Hip thrusts: 135x10/185x8/205x8/225x8/235x8
