Strict press
190 x 5
215 x 3
240 x 1
Good, redeemed these failed numbers from last cycle. I'll be repeating the prior days from this cycle but progressing the 1RM, like I've done with my bench press, because my strength there is disproportionate and I don't see a point in holding that week back after being on this program and staying conservative for many years.

Lying dumbbell rows
115s x 12
125s x 8

Strict press
175 x 10, 10, 10, 8

Kroc rows
160 x 30
Thought I'd have to ease back into these and ended up setting a PR. Since training at home, my back work has just been at a heavier standard than before.

Lying dumbbell rows
125s x 10, 10

Wide barbell incline press
65 x 25, 20

Neutral-grip chins

Rear delts, chest flyes, curls
My phone just tried to autocorrect "curls" to "girls". Asshole.

Big dinner tonight. Family came over and I had a homemade burrito while waiting for an uncle to arrive. Then immediately after that with everyone at the table I had two kabobs, Persian yogurt, rice, and before bed a casein shake.


  1. I mean, don't get me wrong, girls can be a workout for sure.

    I'm excited to see how your progress goes with you pushing things with the bench. Following it for a while now, it looks like it's really found it's place and is ready to take off.

  2. I see your point, girls do consist of weight and can be lifted. Thanks man, I'd like to see us both reach 400 in the near future. I remember a decade ago we were talking the same about 300.
