After talking with my wife about life, teaching, and working out I realized that I was overtraining . . . leading myself to be less than average in all aspects of my life. I am gearing things down and focusing my workouts strictly on the 531 lifts and on mobility before/after workouts and at night.
Here goes nothin'! Truth!
Tuesday - OHP 9.25
warm-up: 2xbarx10, 2x50x5, 2x65x5, 80x3
5/5/5: 85x5, 95x5, 110x6 (goal was to get 5+)
Focused on shoulder mobility and stretching my back. I did a few sets of chins in the 5/5/5 part of the workout.
Wednesday - DL
warm-up: 2x135x5, 2x175x5, 210x3
5/5/5: 225x5, 260x5, 295x6 (goal 5+)
Felt really strong with DL today. Solid lifts all around.
Thursday - BP
warm-up: barx20, 2x75x5, 2x105x5, 115x3
5/5/5: 135x5, 155x5, 180x2 (goal 5+)
Poundages set using 100% of my TM - was too much!! So, I am revamping my weights for BP using 90% of my TM. Live & learn. The presses are easily my weakest areas at the moment.
Going to begin working out just 3x per week flipping DL/Squat - not sure if I'll do that weekly or monthly. We will see.
Saturday - small workout - 100 curls with 20# on bar + 4 trips with 35# dbs farmer's walk.
