High Bar Squat: up to 375
Could have done more but didn’t feel like it. I’m not used to the bar position sans manta ray, and I’m not going to be able to squat as much like this. Fuck it. Low bar every day.
LBS: 315 and 365×1, then 410x6x1
that’s six singles for you foreigners/communists.
Bench: up to 360; 320x10x2
Sumo: 4 sets, all PRs, up to 390 off 3.5″ deficit
Emilio and I have had a couple of soccer conversations. He agrees with my take on the (stagnant & overhyped) future of the sport in this country. In exchange, I listened to him marvel at Germany beating Brazil 7-1. He told me how Brazil is still upset about losing to Uruguay in 1950. I asked him who was playing in the other semi and he told me Argentina/Netherlands. I told him I would root for Argentina (where he’s from) but he didn’t like their chances. Then a day or so later I even checked the score and was pleased to see they won. He was happy the next time I saw him in the gym. I dunno. Good old Emilio.
Saw Andy coming into the locker room but he didn’t see me (I was washing my hands after pissing). I hurried to the power rack and started squatting. He came out a few minutes later and asked me if I was just getting started. I said yes, and neither of us bothered to discuss working in because we both knew it was unfeasible as he’d be doing some brutal banded box squats.
