Entry #88
Powerlifting is boring. Four minutes rest is too long. Compared to
bodybuilding, however, this is actually harder because the weight is so
much heavier. Before it was intense because the rest was only one
minute, but the weight was nothing, really. Interestingly enough,
the pain is different, too. Before it was sharp and more
concentrated. Now it's like a dull pain spread out in my
entire upper arm/back. But I actually like this better. Today was:

Deadlifts - 3 sets 8 reps
Barbell shrugs - 4 sets 10 reps
Bent over rows - 4 sets 10, 8, 6, 6 reps
Seated rows - 3 sets 8 reps
Pulldowns in front - 3 sets 8 reps
One arm dumbbell rows - 3 sets 8 reps

For some reason I've never seen anyone else in my gym do deadlifts.

Did a few rounds on the heavy bag. Combinations are getting more
fluid. I used to just swing single heavy punches. I'm gonna utilize
these next time I go against George.
