    GOALS: Simply to increase all lifts and conditioning times. This is always the long term goal, although short term goals vary.

    I was stuck on the phone with DirectTV's customer service for an hour before lifting. It obviously made me retarded.

    Warmup
    Jump Rope + Heavy Bag: 10 minutes

    Bench Press
    135 lbs x 3 (paused - wide grip)
    175 lbs x 2 (paused - wide grip)
    215 lbs x 1 x 5 sets (paused - wide grip)
    245 lbs x 2
    *I started off thinking I was supposed to be doing paused wide grip benching today. I then look at my schedule and that is for Saturday. I then go to load up for my scheduled top set at 245 lbs, and I load up 205 lbs instead. I unrack and realize that I'm losing my mind. 245 lbs felt really good and fast though. I felt like I had 3 more reps in me. Bar speed was great.

    Bent Over Rows
    135 lbs x 8
    195 lbs x 8 x 3 sets
    *Another fail. I was supposed to use 190 lbs.

    Thanks. Really hoping to get my bench up. I just realized when copying my first post how pathetic it is that I haven't improved it in over a year while other lifts shoot up.

    Glad you kept the name. And a 290 Push Press is absurd. I can't imagine putting nearly 3 plates over my head, although I did get 3x5x105 on strict press today.

    My weekend of retardation continues. Woke up at 5:40 and thought the clock said 6:40 which is around my normal wake up time. I didn't even realize it until I was done eating breakfast at around 6.

    Warmup
    Jump Rope + Heavy Bag: 10 minutes

    Sumo Deadlift
    135 lbs x 5
    225 lbs x 5
    295 lbs x 3
    355 lbs x 3
    415 lbs x 1
    *Sumo deads feel fine with lighter weight, but weird on heavy weight. I definitely need to remember to take it easy.

    Bench Press
    135 lbs x 3 (Paused - wide grip)
    185 lbs x 2 (Paused - wide grip)
    220 lbs x 1 x 5 sets (Paused - wide grip)
    255 lbs x 1
    *Paused reps had a very long pause and short rest periods. 255 lbs felt very smooth.

    Squats
    135 lbs x 5
    185 lbs x 5
    225 lbs x 5
    275 lbs x 3
    315 lbs x 3
    375 lbs x 3
    *Felt good man.

    Power Cleans to Push Press
    135 lbs x 1
    155 lbs x 1
    175 lbs x 1
    185 lbs x 1
    210 lbs x 1 x 8 sets
    *None of the singles were great, but none were awful. I've found that I can power clean weight up to 195 lbs and make it look good. From 195-215 lbs they won't look bad. From 220 lbs and up I'm more likely to have a shit clean than a good one.

    Bench Press Lockouts/Board Presses
    225 lbs x 5 (pins halfway between chest and lockout)
    275 lbs x 1 (one pin lower than halfway point)
    295 lbs x 3 (didn't set pin, but it was a small range of motion working on lockout)
    275 lbs x 1 (one pin lower than halfway point)
    *Feeling good on bench. If I went one pin lower than where I was on 275, it's pretty close to chest when my arch is right. Both 275 lbs singles were fast as well.

    Paused Bench Press
    135 lbs x 3
    175 lbs x 3
    195 lbs x 3
    230 lbs x 3
    *Wide grip with long pause

    Speed Deads
    135 lbs x 5
    225 lbs x 5
    275 lbs x 5
    335 lbs x 5 x 3 sets
    *Warmups were sumo. Sumo just doesn't feel right sometimes. I decided to pull conventional on the 335 lbs set. I know I said I wasn't going to pull conventional again, but I figure if I hurt my back on 335 lbs, I deserve it. It felt fine and all reps were smooth and fast.

    Unenthusiastic training session. Also got my deadlift belt - 2 months after I ordered it. It feels pretty flimsy compared to my other belt.

    Warmup
    Jump Rope + Heavy Bag: 10 minutes

    Bench Press
    135 lbs x 5
    185 lbs x 5
    205 lbs x 3
    225 lbs x 2
    260 lbs x 1
    *Misloaded - again. I was going to do 250 lbs x 2. I did 260 lbs for an easy single and thought it felt a lot heavier than it should and re-racked it.

    Bent Over Rows
    135 lbs x 5
    185 lbs x 5
    215 lbs x 3 x 5 sets

    425 lbs x 1
    415 lbs x 1
    405 lbs x 1
    395 lbs x 1
    *Taking it easy and trying to gauge where my back is at. I've given up on sumo deads. I actually put the weight down on my toe on the 295 lbs set. It actually doesn't feel better on my back doing sumo. At the top, it feels like my lower back is bearing the weight on sumo. Anyhow, I'm finding that a very narrow stance is actually helping me. Go figure. All singles were easy and fast. Just working on form.

    Speed Bench Press
    135 lbs x 8
    160 lbs x 8
    190 lbs x 14

    Wow... that opening post is seriously impressive. Strong as hell and great conditioning. How many guys have (nearly) 500lb squats, 300lb push press, under 20 minute 5k and 2:30 for 50 Burpees?

    To be fair, all of those were achieved at different times. When I was at my peak for conditioning, my strength wasn't near as high. When my strength is high, my conditioning is much lower. It's hard to keep them both up at the same time.
