    I'm 5'8, 185lbs. I'm a bjj bluebelt. I'll be powerlifting 3 times a week and training jiujitsu twice.

    Wednesday, September, 28th

    Deadlifts: 185x3, 235x3, 255x3, 255x3, 255x3, 265x3
    Pullups: bwx5, bwx6, bwx6, bwx5, bwx4
    Curls: 65x5, 65x5, 65x5, 75x5, 75x5
    Weighted hanging situps: 35x8, 35x8, 35x8, 35x8

    I'm trying to find a better way to hold the weight for the situps. I've been using a dumbell, holding it by one head with both hands, and resting the other on my chest. But its hard not to push it up some with my triceps and just follow with my abs in the middle of the movement. If I try to lay it flat on my chest, I don't like the tendency of it to roll toward my throat.

    I also got the stereotypical fat guy in the corner doing curls giving stupid advice. I ignored him, but got weird looks the rest of the workout. This is my first time working out at the community center in the morning and its totally different.

    Fat dudes that don't mind their own business instead of young project kids that are actually trying to get strong like in the afternoon. I'll definitely get back to working out then if i can. I think their might be problems if I keep coming in the morning, they really don't seem to like people doing real lifts even though they have ap ower rack.

    Overhead press: 75x5, 95x5, 115x5, 115x5, 115x5, 115x3
    Bench Press: 120x5, 140x5, 160x3, 160xfail, 140x5, 145x5, 145x5, 145x5
    Dips: x5, x6, x6, x5, x4
    Hanging Leglifts: 10, 10, 10

    I thought it wouldn't be a big deal to do a push workout the day after a deadlift workout, but my lats proved me wrong. I just could not put up anything on the benchpress especially, but it effected my overheads and dips too. Still, got through a shitty workout, and have time to recover now. Squats on Saturday.

    I did about 8 sets of 5 reps on all lifts. I didn't have paper with me, so I'm not sure exactly what I did on each set. Just what I worked up to for the last couple

    Back Squats (atg): up to 160lbs.
    Bent Over Rows: up to 160lbs.
    Front Squats: up to 120lbs.
