CSS Week 7 Day 2

SSB: 2@420/190.5, 440/199.6
Conv Deadlift: 2@485/220, 507.1/230

Feeling really rough today, spent almost all day on my feet and that didn’t seem to go along with the extreme sloth like nature of the last week. My back felt off on deadlifts so I decided to shut it down early and live to fight another day.

CSS Week 7 Day 1

Bench: 1@396.8/180, 407.9/185, 418.9/190, 418.9/190, 418.9/190
Close Grip: 3@352.7/160, 352.7/160, 363.8/165, 363.8/165, 369.3/167.5, 369.3/167.5

Felt like lots of volume, but it was just a lot at a fairly high percentage.

CSS Week 6 Day 5

Squat w/belt: 2@540.1/245, 573.2/260, 595.2/270
Squat w/belt drop set: 3×3@540.1/245

Squats felt pretty good today after pulling heavy last night. A little shifty and loose in the bottom but okay.

CSS Week 6 Day 4

Sumo Deadlift w/belt: 1@540.1/245, 562.2/255, 584.2/265, 606.3/275, 617.3/280, 628.3/285
6″ Block Pulls w/belt: 2@606.3/275, 617.3/280, 628.3/285, 639.3/290
2 Second Pause Bench: 6@264.6/120, 286.6/130, 303.1/137.5

Really good deadlift workout tonight, pushing some singles up to an opener range for the meet in a month, I’ll go heavy again in a couple weeks but it was good to have weight in the hands. Then I did part of the bench workout that is supposed to be today, I missed one day this week due to Christmas and being sick earlier in the week.

CSS Week 6 Day 1

Bench: 1@396.8/180, 413.4/187.5, 429.9/195
Close Grip Bench: 3×3@374.8/170

Felt like crap after spotting/loading most of the day yesterday but hit my number. Didn’t get everything in but still felt like a victory after how 70kg felt.

CSS Week 5 Day 4

Sumo Deadlift: 3@507.1/230, 3@529.1/240, 2@545.6/247.5, 2@562.2/255, 1@584.2/265, 1@606.3/275, 3@518.1/235, 3@518.1/235

Quite the deadlift pyramid today,pushed my singles up from 265 to 275, felt pretty good. Time to start getting some weight back in my hands for the meet.

CSS Week 5 Day 3

Squat w/belt: 2@551.2/250, 595.2/270 606.3/275
Close Grip Legs Up Bench: 8@220.5/100, 242.5/110, 264.6/120, 275.6/125

Decided to push my squat numbers today, I was feeling inspired which always helps. I think 2@275kg is a small PB, I think I did 270 before.

CSS Week 5 Day 2

SSB Wide Stance: 2@380/172.4, 400/181.4
Conv Deadlift: 2@485/220, 507.1/230, 529.1/240, 540.1/245, 551.2/250

I decided to widen my squat and go lighter today, trying to get the hips into a bit more, felt it quite a bit, need to be careful with it as I don’t want to push my back. Deadlifts felt pretty good, till the last set where I felt out front past my knees on the first one.
