Workout #26 – Thu 10/31/13

When I woke up this morning the back pain was mostly gone.

FS: 45×4, 95×3, 135×2, 185×1, 225×1, 245×1, 265×1, 275×1, 285×1, TM 295×1; 225×2, 230×2, 235×2, 240×2, 225×3,3 (14)

I realized that my problem on front squats wasn’t my use of straps, it was that I was holding them too close to the bar.  Watched a video of Rob Adell (sp) FS 500 lbs and he held the straps about 4-6 inches from bar.  Worked great today.

Push Press: 45×10, 95×3, 135×2, 185×1, 200×1, 210×1, 220×1, CM 231.5×1; 185×2, 6x190x2, 185×3 (17)

Realized I had been miscalculating kilos to pounds and was actually lifting a few lbs more than i thought.  Damn kilos.  Kilos are the reason Americans suck at Olympic lifting.

Snatch-Grip Deadlift: 135×3, 205×2, 275×1, 325×1, CM 365×1; 275×2, 255×2, 205×3,3 (10)

Ha, after 365, an all-time PR, my back started hurting again.  So i did a lot of stretching and back extensions and will probably skip one day of Deadlifting tomorrow. When i resume, no more over/under grip and no going ultra heavy for a while.

Went home and drank some wine instead of taking ibuprofen.
