OK, so my bitchfest is out of the way and I am feeling much better today 🙂 I ate well, I trained well, and I’m feeling way less cray cray. Also, after venting a little bit, I am actually feeling much more motivated today than I was for the past week or so. Sometimes you just need to yell and scream before getting back on your horse and moving on.

Strength — CUBE Method: Deadlifts, Rep Day.
So yeah, anyway, TRAINING! WOO! I had a lot of fun in the gym today and was feeling really great about my deadlifts. I didn’t wear my belt (for no real reason) but they felt just fine. Also, I didn’t wear my straps for the heavy rack pulls and they felt just fine too. I am definitely enjoying only wearing the gear when I feel like I really need it. I feel like it’s helping me stay stronger in some weak spots. My back was pretty tired after deadlifts, but that’s to be expected I think.
Deficit Deadlifts – 1 set of 8 @ 225# on 2″ plate. These felt SO SO SO much better than they ever have before. AND I didn’t even wear my belt. Either I stopped over thinking these, or I’m getting stronger… or both.
Deadlifts off Blocks (well… off of 2 plates on top of eachother) — 2 sets of 3 at 250# Easy Peasy.
Front Squats: Back was fried from awesome deadlifts and wouldn’t let me do more than 95 pounds without collapsing at the bottom. Sooo. 3 sets of 8 @ 95# This is fine with me since it’s not squat day.
Pendlay Rows: 3 sets of 8 @95# The last set was great, the first two… eh… I think I didn’t warm up enough (… at all)
GHD Sit Ups: 1 set of 10, then 2 sets of 10 with 30# med ball
GHD Back Extensions: 1 set of 10, then 2 sets of 10 with 30# med ball.
Looking forward to my accessory day tomorrow. Going to do some snatches, presses/push-presses, and chin ups 🙂
