No maxing today, sort of, because didn’t train yesterday.

Weight: 196.4 (+3.2) wtf

Manta Ray Squat: 45×4, 135×3, 225×2, 275, 315, 345; 315,320,325,330,335,340,345,350,355,360×1, 315,320,325×2, 315x3x3

Wanted to get 30 reps of volume in (counting partial squats)

Partial Squats #11: 315, 405, 455, 500, 520

Gonna keep doing this until I PR.

Bench: 45×8, 95×4, 135×3, 175×2, 215, 255, 295, 320

Slingshot Bench: 360, 380, 395 x 1

Bench: 315 x 2,3,3,2

Look ma, no spotter (cept on slingshot, I’m not insane)

Clean Deadlift: 135×2, 225, 315, 405, 455, 480

Not as easy as I thought it would be.  Not even sure if I’m doing a real clean deadlift, since I don’t know how to do a clean.  Kept back flat and used hook grip.

RDL: 355×5

Time: 2:05

Gym was pretty empty, so was going from Squat(volume) to Bench (volume) to Squat to Deadlift & repeat, pretty much without any waiting besides to drink from my water bottle, adjust my mp3 player and put on my wrist wraps/belt.

  1. A Clean Deadlift uses a lot more quads than a regular Deadlift. Generally, hips are lower, the bar starts out over the base of the big toe, rather than up by your shins, so your knees are further forwards. You then get off the floor, not by extending your hips, but by extending your knees until your shins are vertical and the bar passes them, at which point you start extending your hips so that you finish hip and knee extension at roughly the same time. No pop or shrug at the top, so it’s not a Clean Pull. Clear? As mud? I think my written communication is way off tonight.
