2013-07-18 Fitness Log: Squat, Clean, Deadlift

Squat (Bas’ Barbell 6 Weeks To A Bigger Squat Week 2 Day 2)

  • Warmup: 45 x 5, 145 x 3, 175 x 2, 205 x 2, 235 x 1, 265 x 1
  • 285 x 6 x 2

Not much to say here.  This went fine.  Knee didn’t feel wonderful but it was more of a dull ache than sharp pain.

 Cleans

  • 135 lbs x 1
  • 150 lbs x 1
  • 165 lbs x 1
  • 180 lbs x 1
  • 195 lbs x 1
  • 205 lbs x X
  • 205 lbs x 1
  • 210 lbs x 1
  • 215 lbs x XX
  • 220 lbs x X

The miss on 205 was weird.  I racked it pretty much perfectly — bar right up against the throat and elbows around.  Then for some reason I decided to drop it.  This is one I wish I had on video to see if something actually went wrong or I just had a brain fart.

I felt really good up until the 215 and then just hit the wall.  I guess I need more carbs in my diet!  Haha, just kidding.  I guess the 95 degree weather, lots of squats this week, etc. just caught up.  I didn’t have the energy or motivation to battle the 215.

Deadlift

  • 255 lbs x 1
  • 305 x 2
  • 325 x 1
  • 355 x 1
  • 375 x 1
  • 390 x 1

I didn’t expect much with the deadlift after bombing out on the cleans but was pleasantly surprised to pull a solid 390.  It was slow but with good form.  That’s 97.5% of my previous max of 400 and much much nicer than that rep at 400.
