Man, that's hardcore!

I would be scared that I wouldn't be able to get out of bed after a squat workout like that.

I'll let you know tommorrow for sure. But as of right now, it is a little after midnight(got home from work a little while ago) and I'm already sore as hell.

Well, the workout was a bit rushed and I was still pretty **** sore from the Austrian Blitz on Thursday. However, I am very pleased with the deadlift totals and the overall workout felt good. Deadlifts are easier and easier every time I do them. Next time it will be 385 x 5-6 reps on the last set.

I skipped Power Cleans do to leg soreness. T-Bar Rows and Face Pulls were skipped unfortunately do to not having the time for the equipment to open up. I swear the gym had less than half the people usually in there and everyone was where I needed to be.

Thanks!

At this rate I'll be doing 405 for reps within 4-6 weeks.

I felt really weak on Flat bench so I just decided to go a little heavier for lower reps. Incline dumbbells felt good though.

Bicep workout was kinda crappy. I just can't get motivated to do these. I hate training them out of shear boredom. It's a good thing they are one of my better bodyparts otherwise I'd be screwed.

I used to hate biceps, too, then I loved them, now I don't mind them at all. Soon I'll probably hate working them again, etc. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

LOL. That reads pretty funny.

I've never been a big fan of them but at least I'm working them out more consistently. Every once in awhile I get really into them but that is a rare occasion.

I think it's interesting...you are markedly stronger than I am on the incline DB presses, but I think I'm equal or maybe a tad stronger on flat bench, and decline....

hmmmmm....

Trust me, I'm trying to figure that one out myself.

Over the past 2-3 months my Incline DB strength has skyrocketed but my flat bench press is barely moving. Decline probably sucks because I haven't done them in years. I've always been a real weak bencher.

But at the same time, upper chest size is behind my lower/middle chest despite the extra emphasis I place on it. Go figure.

I think I may do an Austrian Blitz with Flat Bench Press though to try and shock my chest for size and strength. I figure if it worked that **** good for my legs then why not my chest.
