OK so it's been two weeks and I have gained 8 pounds as of this morning when I was 168. That's about half a pound a day. I will take it and my lifts are continuing to go up so that's great too! Today I forgot my log at home when I went to the gym so here is what I remember doing.
155x5x3 really ground through the last few reps here but got er done.
Squat Volume 6625
At this point I still feel intimidated on the bench. What if I can't do the weight and have to unload the bar all sloppy like? Today I decided to do some speed work so I dropped the weight down to 95 and did 3x10 as fast as I could with 30 sec breaks in between. I have heard the guys at WestSide Barbell do this on their Dynamic Effort days and it took the psychological BS out of it so I tried it.
95x3x10 30 sec between sets
Bench volume 9260
I skipped the power clean because last time I tweaked my back a tad and I was short on time as well I can see myself starting to slack here so I am gong to get my head back in it and move some weight. Total Volume today was 13250.
