The weekend of December 1st would be a great time for a club bar crawl.

There are going to be exactly zero hot biddies in too-tight dresses that weekend.

I'm too scared of downtown Iowa City at night. It's the closest I've ever come to living the Do Long bridge scene from Apocalypse Now:

Paused Bench Press
Barx15
95x8
135x8
185x8
220x8
220x8
220x8
220x8
220x12

Floor Press (Paused)
Barx5
135x2
185x2
245x2
245x2
245x2
245x2

Lat Row Machine
90x12
100x12
110x12
120x12

Lat Pulldown, Wide Grip
100x12
110x12
110x12

External Rotations, three sets

Wall Angels
x40

Notes: First off, I am going to really start trying to be more consistent with my logging. This is ridiculous.

Second, my benching is feeling stronger. It's not STRONG yet, but I am definitely making progress. 220x12 was pretty easy; I had a few reps left in the tank, and the pauses were stricter than my regular rep-max sets.

I am focusing really hard on pausing as lightly on my chest as possible, and I think this is working well in rebuilding my bench. I also did some floor pressing as a secondary movement, just to see how it felt, and my strength there is miserable. This is GREAT news, because it suggests that returning to floor pressing for a little while will only contribute to my bench press. So, look for me to floor press once or twice a week as a secondary movement--I think this will help rebuild top-end strength.

Overall, this was a very encouraging session. Though my numbers haven't been out-of-this-world recently, I'm recovering well and building towards something here. I'm going to stay the course and continue to prep for this meet.

Squats w/ wraps
95x8
135x5
185x3
225x2
275x2
315x2
380x2
420x2
460x4 (PR)

Hip Abductors, three sets

Squat Belt Hip Walks
90x8 trips

Leg Curls
BWx210

Notes: I think 460x4 is a ten-pound PR with a 4RM. It's not really a big step over any of my other rep PRs, but it's nice to do something I haven't done before. The set itself felt pretty good, besides a shaky third rep. Overall, my squatting is coming along. 460 should be good as an opener for November.

I also cranked my knee wraps on HARD for these. Like, that was probably about as tight as I've ever wrapped them. My left foot was numb before I had even unracked the weight. These were nearly Malan-esque wraps.

And probably because they were so tight, the back of my right leg (at the knee) is a little tender right now. Nothing severe at all, but given my injury history, it'll be something to keep an eye on. Hopefully it feels great in the morning; if not, I might be cautious and not squat in wraps next week. The good news is that this isn't the leg where I tore my gastroc.

The karma gods are just poking you back. I had the same tenderness (I presume) right behind my left knee after my squat session when you wrapped my knees. Gave it some ice, woke up this morning and it is 100% gone.

Just by thankful I'm not Malan:

I'm in a tech lab right now so have the sound off but was Malan trying to signal that, that wrap was "so-so"??

My knees are going:

Paused Bench Press (Narrower grip--hands moved one-inch in on each side)
Barx20
95x5
135x5
185x5
225x3
240x5
240x5 (2-sec. pauses)
240x5 (2-sec. pauses)
240x5 (2-sec. pauses)
240x5 (2-sec. pauses)

Tricep Pushdowns, five sets

Band Pull-Aparts, four sets

Notes: My narrow(er) grip bench press is definitely improving; 240x5x5 felt good, even with the long pauses. The jury's still out on if it'll transfer over to my competition grip, but overall, my bench is feeling stronger with every training session.

That said, I need to keep myself in check here. For three consecutive sessions, I've made the programming a little tougher than I had written it: I pulled 435x12 instead of 435x8; I squatted 460x4 instead of 460x2x2; and now, I've benched 240x5x5 with long pauses instead of just pausing it. These are small changes, and it isn't a big deal YET, but I need to take the next few days to just run the program and put together some solid numbers. I have consistently gotten into trouble when I've trained like this for weeks on end, and the best thing I can do now is just to keep the RPEs down for the next few sessions. I do want to push my deadlifting a little again this week, but otherwise, I'm going to stick to the numbers for a little while.
