That's pretty interesting and seems like a great technique to use for competition. Does everyone do that?
Well...it depends. Most of your common, middle of the road power lifters have GARBAGE technique in their lifts, so it's rare to see a nice arch, unless you know...they've put some time in. I think I have one of the better arches I've seen in a long while.
Got a quick W.O. in today, nothing major. I wasn't in the gym for a few days lately, cause I haven't been feeling the greatest, and my father is having some trouble with his diabetes back home in STL, so it's been weighing heavy on my mind. Anyhow, here's what I did:
Tuesday, August 5th, 2008
10 x 135
5 x 185
5 x 225
3 x 250
2 x 275
1 x 290
1 x 300
1 x 305
Close Grip Bench
(Sets of 3's today)
3 x 185
3 x 205
3 x 225
3 x 245
Front Plate Raises
10 reps. w/ 45
- What can I say? I've been kinda down in the dumps lately cause of my family stuff, so I will admit - I haven't been eating as clean as I should be.
And that was about it. Not very motivated today because of everything I'm thinking about, plus I'm kind of trying to save some energy for later this week...since I have a TON of baseball games coming up. Look at this:
Thursday, August 7 = Games @ 6:00 PM, 8:00 PM
Friday, August 8 = Games @ 5:00 PM, 7:00 PM, 9:00 PM
Saturday & Sunday = Tournament...and we're guaranteed to play at LEAST 2, if we win every game, we'll have to play 6 games.
Yeah. At least 7, but we'll win...so we'll probably end up playing 11. Nice.
Hope everyone that takes the time to read this is doing well though!
take care & train hard
