130/150/170 This is starting to get at least the slightest bit more difficult
130/150/170 Still easy. Am resisting the strong urge to bump up more than 5 lbs a week in increases. Think that I need to just keep it that way and get where I get.
3x7 at +15, +20, +25 (f) 4
That seemed a bit weak.
Then some assistance stuff:
3x8 back xtn +5lbs Easy. Bump up to 10 next week.
Barbell hip thrust.
It was pointed out to me last time I was at Brand X I was weaker in the hips than I was in the pull from the floor. I was having some trouble finding chains that weren't an arm and a leg, which is one way to train this, but then ran across this version of the same thing. The article on EliteEFTS said some guys can lift more than their raw squat. So I figured 135 would be doable...ha!
3x8 @ 95lbs.
I couldn't lock out 135 yet so I just did the 95. That was crazy hard in the "wow, this really targets and wears out your backside" sort of way...
