You certainly have been bustin' it, I hope to bust it to your level.
Thanks, 2010 will be a good year as well.
Well, my training kind of drifted in December, I am going to get more focused though. I am going to do a conventional Squat, Bench, Dead, OH Press split.
My focus is still pushing strength and hypertrophy right now, so I am going to cut out assistance work on my Squat and Deadlift days, in favor of some extra pushing work. Today's workout is an example.
Deadlift - no belt on any sets
306, 336, 366, 396, 426x3 This was my previous best for 3 reps, it was easy this time
I had more reps in me, but my grip was done after 8 reps, I think I could have gotten 3 or 4 more with straps
Weighted sit ups
10, 25, 35 x 8
BWx3, 8 sets
