Squat: up to 455; 410×2,2,1, 415×1, 420×1, 425×1 (8)
decided to do singles because doubles were too strenuous; keep reading to Thursday’s workout to see what conclusion i reached
BTN Press: up to 166; 120-135×3 (12)
My old coach at the sports science place is a big believer in record plates, and in his gym you can make any weight w/in a 1/100th of a pound. Plates smaller than 2.5 lbs are essential for training little kids safely. Brooks Kubik is generally for them, but says that some guys won’t like using them. I used to use them, ignoring the futility of the endeavor (since the bars and plates vary widely in weight at commercial gyms). I stopped because Broz said something like “they’re good if you’re a 12 year old girl”. But I restarted on behind-the-neck press because:
1. I always use the same bar and bumper plates for my btn press
2. My btn press max is about what a 12 yr old girl might clean or snatch.
Sumo: 370 off 5″ deficit
a lot easier than previous weeks’ bandless sumos have been
Squat: up to 460; 415x3x1
now back to my old tricks
Bench: up to 330,
345; 285×3, 290×3, 295x2x2 (10)
no reason, just weak today
Sumo+monster: 275 off 5″ deficit, 290 off 4.5″
Squat: up to 465; 365-385×3 (15)
BTN Press: up to 160,
165; 115-140×3 (18)
Sumo+lite: 260 off 5″, 280 off 4.5″, 315 off 4″
okay, I think I’ve figured it out. The problem is that I received two orders from Broz (i mean in reading his posts and an interview), but I could not simultaneously follow both of them
1. Drop down 20 kg…
2. …and start doing doubles and triples.
given the available workout time, either I do singles with 20kg less, or I drop down more weight. It seems like the latter feels a lot more satisfying. tomorrow, i’ll probably start with 370 and do that – triples till i can’t then doubles til i run out of time.
