(D) Bench, Deadlifts, Shoulders :: Greyskull LP Week 13

Mood: Stronk.

So we had this massive problem with freakin’ fruit flies in our kitchen. The night before my wife bombs the kitchen with this “safe” fruit fly killer and they still returned.

So last night our entire family clean the kitchen from top to bottom. All opened foods in our pantry was toss. Fruit, trashed. Everything on the counters were sprayed and wiped down. Floors remopped. Dishes in the open rewashed and put away.

8 hours work.

2 hour commute.

An evening of hardcore kitchen cleaning.

So should I skip Deadlifts? What do you think?

Here’s the workout:

  • Barbell Bench Press 2×5 167.5#
  • Deadlifts 2×5 300#
  • Barbell Bench Press 5 reps 167.5#
  • Deadlifts 5 reps 300#
  • Romanian Deadlifts 1×10 155#; 1×5 275#
  • Front Arm Raises 5×13 45#
  • Single-Arm Linear Jammer 3×8 90# (no Rest)

Results: Super Stronk!

Tonight I got to use my wrist wraps on the Bench for the first time and lifting straps on the Deadlift for the first time.

I had to go without safety pins because the gym was crowded af. So I had to use a normal bench like a normal person. While I couldn’t bang out 10 reps for Bench, my bench was hella solid. Wrist Wraps did make a difference.

(I would not recommend them for Front Plate Raises.)

You know what lifting straps do for Deadlift? Takes your grip out of the equation. Now, I know that you shouldn’t use straps for 100% of your pulls. Your grip has to be strong. But when you have to do reps especially in deadlifts, it is a Godsend for sure. I figure that since I am now training where my original PR is at, I think I am good to go using straps for pulling.

The last workout this week should be Back day if I make it to the gym. If I do, I will for sure use straps on all Rows and Landmines.

Supplements: C4 taken 30 minutes prior to working out.

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

Food: 2,649cal  288c  106f  143p

In the last week , I had one day where I went about 829cal over my daily limit of 3000. But that was in the middle of missing my cal mark by 500. I am not purposefully cutting, I am just eating less for no real reason what so ever.

The belt can stand to go one notch tighter but that would leave me with no more notches. I am trying to stay at 275. If I keep this light eating up, I may have to weigh myself in a week and see where am I at.
