Today felt really good. I did my military press with the axle so it was a little different exercise but I stuck with the same weights. Since I got to lift with my old crew this morning I wasn’t going to pass up the chance to do some heavy axle pressing. I’ll drag the sled later today for some extra volume.

Falling Behind

Once again I’m behind on updating this thing. I got all my rep maxes in at the end of the last cycle, deloaded and now I’m back lifting again this week. Here’s how things are going so far:

Monday-
Military Press: 105 x 5 x 8

Tuesday-
Squat: 190 x 5 x 8

Thursday-
Bench: 150 x 5 x 8

Friday-
Deadlifts: 240 x 5 x 8

I really don’t remember what I did as far as accessory work the first three days. Today I’m doing a little double split action. I deadlifted earlier then I’m going to get my accessory work in later this afternoon.

115 x 8

Incline DB Press-

This session was actually done on Monday and it was definitely a Jack Shit type of day. I have sort of post nasal drip going on so my throat is sore as hell and I’m coughing sporadically throughout the day. I’ll go ahead and squat today but I don’t know if I’ll do any assistance work.

New Plan….Once again…

I’m not going to be making the July 2nd NASA meet so I’m going to go full on with the Juggernaut Method training for 16 weeks and see how it goes.

Light weight baby!

Today’s Training:
Military Press- 95 x 3 x 10
FB DB Row- 115 x 5
DB Row- 115 x 10, 10
Incline DB Bench Press- 75 x 8, 85 x 6

I haven’t done any military pressing since December so these high reps killed me. The program actually calls for 5 sets of 10 this week but I didn’t have the endurance so I stopped it short at 3 sets. That won’t happen again though, from here on out I’m going to shoot for exactly how it is laid out.

I’m bumping my training back up to 4x per week so this should be interesting.
