Stage two ...burn everything else!!!!! Burn I say! Hahahahaaha!
Edit...there is a quad hidden behind that couch....it and the heavy bag may stay ......the couch too once the discarded tv currently residing in the attached garage finds a home out here as well. I am willing to compromise beast machine a bit for a quiet man retreat combo unit.
Thought I was finally gonna smash my 300x5 squat goal.
Squats: 4 at 300 lbs. Fifth one went down and wouldn't go back up.
I had a similar experience with deadlifts at 310. The goal was 3. The first one was heavy, got a bit in front of me but ok. The second was an UGLY grinder. And the general feeling in the room was that I should probably not attempt a third. LOL! As Neckhammer says above, I will make it my bitch next time!
I haven't posted here in a while out of sheer laziness. I've stopped journaling my progress in general, which is not a good thing. Lately I've been playing with "pausing" on squats and bench press. It sucks. I'm doing another meet mid-June. Going for full power - God help me!! 😳😳😊😜
Today I squatted 200lbs 5x5! Is it normal to be real sore around the pelvic area? But I've reached my limit on bench press I just can't seem to get passed 145lbs.
Awesome!! Pelvic area discomfort is not abnormal, but without more info it's hard to tell what's wrong exactly. Personally, I do lots of hip mobility work before squatting and static stretches (only after). I bought Becoming a Supple Leopard and I LOVE IT! It's helping me work with my mobility issues. Even if you feel you're ok, get a good warm-up routine going so you stay loose. Keep up the good work!!!
Didn't feel right after Sunday's flag football game. Knee is janky. Today, Monday:
Squats: Supposed to be 5x5 @ 265 lbs, but decided to drop the weight due to the knee. Did 5x8 @ 225 lbs, which actually might have sucked worse.
OHP: 5x5 @ 135 lbs.
Deadlift: Was supposed to do 5 @ 390. My 365 warmup rep jumped off the floor. My first 390, my knee felt weird again. I went to pull a second one, and it just didn't feel right. Tapped out of the workout at that point and just played around with dips and arm stuff. I'm smarter than I used to be; not gonna push a knee issue.
Define "pelvic area," but the answer is "probably"
Have you tried microloading the bench?
Squat: 315 x 3 x 3
Press: 105 x 3, 120 x 3, 135 x 6 (WEAK!!!)
Deadlift: 340 x 3, 390 x 3, 440 x 3
When I say pelvic area I mean my hip area. Maybe its my hips that I feel burning or slightly inward toward my crotch. If I'm laying in a bed and I go to lift my leg to cross legs, I can feel my hip/pelvic area sore. But only for some hours after my workout. I don't feel it today. It never hurts like pain, but just sore
This morning did a nice easy recovery walk through the trails around me. Focused on my gait and keeping my knee motion stable--I think I only hyperextended it a bit the other day; just feels a bit unstable in certain positions.
