Bench Day

Warm-up sets
5x2 (209lbs), (215lbs), (220lbs), (220lbs), (220lbs)

Close Grip Bench
3x5 70 kilos (154lbs)

Floor Press
3x5 70 kilos (154lbs)

Overhead Press
4x8 40 kilos (88lbs)

Incline
4x8 60 kilos (132lbs)

Barbell Rows
3x5 60 kilos (132lbs), continued to work on hook grip

Upright Rows
5x8 40 kilos (88lbs)

I felt really good about tonights session. I was able to successfully press every set, on both incline and conventional bench, for pause sets. I will probably work on increasing my two rep bench in two weeks. It seemed as if I had a little more left in me after my second rep on all of the last 3 sets of bench. Working in floor press has continued to help me improve on locking out, especially since I haven't ever trained with pause sets until now. I decided to work in a little shoulder work for my accessories to help with my explosiveness and overall pressing power. There are definitely things to take away from my performance. All in all, I was pleased with this workout.

Legs

Low Bar Back Squat
4x4 255lbs

Really worked on my form with squats today. Thanks to Lauren, Jake, and Lorenzo's commentary, I am extremely happy about the adjustments I made. I am much more controlled in my movement. My last set went really well. Probably in the market for some knee sleeves and wrist wraps now that I am into powerlifting for good.

Conventional Deadlift
4x1 275
Wasn't really feeling deadlift today, but I threw in some conventional as opposed to how I normally pull. Felt good to de-load a bit and work on my lower back strength.

Glute/Ham Machine
3x6

Focused on squat specifically today, so I didn't get a whole lot done. I'm feeling good about my progression in my low bar, and definitely enjoy lifting at Magni.

Looks like I'll be out for awhile with this injury. Pretty frustrated to be honest, but only thing I can do is recover and come back stronger than ever.

Bench

5x10 70 kilos (154 lbs)

Close Grip Bench
2x5 (70 kilos)

Wide Grip Bench
1x10 (70 kilos)

Today felt good. I benched yesterday so I worked on quantity and quality throughout my reps. Didn't do a lot of different lifts because of my limitations, and soreness started to settle in from the bench only cycle.
