I drank a gallon yesterday and rested. I drank a gallon today too. I have gained anywhere from 3-7 pounds so far! I say 3-7 because I have not had a good chance to weigh myself accurately. A week ago i was 160.5 and I was 167 when I weighted myself in the afternoon this last Tuesday. Since it was in the afternoon and not in the morning I am not sure how accurate it was but regardless I have never weighed that much before. Regardless of my weight, my strength numbers are going up for sure, and those numbers don't lie. Here's today's workout, DEADLIFT DAY.
125x5 a week ago this was a struggle. Today it went up easy.
Squat Volume = 5500 lbs
No TFL stuff today with the squat. I stretched a bit more before my session by doing a prayer squat, stretching my adductors by driving my knees out with my elbows. I also focused more thought on driving the knows out when driving out of the whole in the squat.
Press Volume = 2350 lbs
I was planning on doing 8g lbs on the press today but went with 80. Last week I push pressed a couple of the presses at 80 pounds and this week I was able to lift them clean.
200x5 5RM! Yes! That is a big number for me. My PR deadlift is 220 and I only did it one time a couple weeks before I hurt my back. 300 is in the not too distant future!
Deadlift Volume = 4875 lbs
Total Volume 7/14/2011 12725 lbs
