Training today:

Squats - 425 x 3,3,3,3,3

DL with doubled mini bands - 315 x 2,2,2,2,2

And called it a day - still feeling the 5x5 on Monday and a lack of sleep is making this weeks training a little tougher than it should be. DL with the bands was interesting - I doubled them around a 100# plate and then took the two strands of the band over the bar outside of the weights (I'll try to get a pic next time) - felt pretty good - just gotta play around with it.

Otherwise - I'm doing well. Just need some sleep.

Thanks Christine - I am 4 weeks into this 15 week cycle- should be a lot of fun by the end.

brett, how much resistance is the double bands? as well as the total weight at the top end of the move. I am super intrigued with Powerlifting as well. With Rif as a coach and reading your exploits I am super duper curious

Joe - I really don't have an exact measurement of the tension - On Squats and bench I am getting quite a bit of tension out of the bands - on the DL I need to tweak it a bit to get a bit more. My Monster Mini bands are on the way!
Try them - you will like them. Especially for the squat and bench.
Look for a post soon about bands.

The question is, what, or who, is keeping you from sleeping?

Brett Jones said...

The who or what is keeping me from sleeping is ME - trying to do it all and losing sleep in the process. So sad I know but there it is...
