Entry #736

ME lower

Rack pulls:
6x5      135, 225, 315, 365, 405, 455 lbs.
> The pins are lower, with the bar resting below my knee. I'd intended to do this before but I made a rookie error of only gauging the level of the pins, and then putting the bar on afterwards, which came at about knee height.

Barbell lunges:
3x8      185 lbs.

Standing band crunches:

Grip work (timed holds)
Entry #735

RE upper

Crazy plates (I feel like an idiot using this name):
5x10    145 lbs.
> Rather than use the 45s, I opted for two 25s on each side so I could hang the plates lower. This increased the difficulty tenfold. My delts were screaming in pain from the tension of having to stabilize this beast.

Chest flyes:
3x12    55 lb. dumbbells

Cable extensions:
3x10    Entire rack

Chin-ups super-setted w/ Hise shrugs

High reps today, but that's the point of RE anyways.

I had 8-bit music from Castlevania II: Simon's Quest stuck in my head all day.
