Squats, OHP, Deadlifts (B) :: Stronglifts 5×5 Week 5

Mood: Not my strongest.

I went in just wiped out. Usually, when that happens, I get a boost just walking into the gym.

But the energy wasn’t there.

I had to end up cutting back on warmups and accessory lifts.

But I got my Mains in.

Here’s the workout:

  • Squats 45# 2×5; 95#x5; 125#x3
  • OHP 45# 2×5
  • Deadlifts 135# 1×5
  • High Bar Barbell Back Squats 5×5 155#
    • Triceps Extensions 5×8 35# – I attempted to start with a 50# EZ bar but it was weird. Like my hands were weird and I couldn’t feel anything in my triceps. I went back to dbs. If I do this again, I think I need to do a straight barbell.
  • Overhead Press 5×5 95# – This was suppose to be 90# but I was too lazy to look for 4×10# (to include the pair of 2.5# that I carry with me at all times.)
    • Lat Pulldowns 5×5 180# – I simply said, “Eff this” and jacked it up from my usually 150.
  • Deadlifts 1×5 235# I don’t think I will stay with just the one set forever. But tonight, it’s all I got.
    • Triceps Pushdowns 0 reps – Again, I got nothing. But it wasn’t until I got home that I realized I missed out on a sick Triceps pump 🙁


Results: Meh.

But still got the work done.

Supplements: C4 taken 30 minutes prior to working out.

Daily: Whey ProteinCreatine (for the one extra rep and swoleness) and Fish Oil (joints) everyday.
