2013-04-25 Fitness Log: Clean, Deadlift, Press

Wendler 5/3/1 Cycle 5 Week 3

  • Clean (as warmup for DL): 145, 165, 180, 210 xxx
  • Deadlift: 345 x 1+: 3
  • Press: 155 x 1+: 1
  • Press 75lbs: 10, 10, 10, 10, 10

Went for a PR on the clean.  Didn’t get it.

Made a good showing on the deadlift.  Pretty happy with 3.  I think this is technically a 3 rep max PR?

Happy to get 1 on the press.  155 is pretty close to my 1RM of 160.  It went up easy enough that I sincerely went for a 2nd rep but it wasn’t going to happen.  On a whim, threw 165 on the bar and failed and then threw 162.5 on the bar and failed.

Now that I’ve officially hit a reset on the press, I have some decisions to make.  Do I continue with Wendler or should I go back to a GSLP style approach for the upper body lifts?  It was nice to do 1 rep at 155 since that means my 1RM hasn’t diminished horrifically.  On the other hand, 5 months of work for “hasn’t diminished horrifically” is kinda horrific.  I definitely feel like the Boring But Big assistance on the upper body has had an impact this cycle.  Maybe do Boring But Big?  I have a week to think about it.
