Training days 07-25-2013 and 07-26-2013

I realized that I forgot to update my workout log for a couple days.

 

07-25-2013

PRESS
Set 1: 45 lbs × 10
Set 2: 95 lbs × 6
Set 3: 135 lbs × 6
Set 4: 175 lbs × 6
Set 5: 175 lbs × 6
Set 6: 175 lbs × 6
Set 7: 135 lbs × 10

Getting my strength back slowly on the overhead. Doing 175 is humbling as hell, but a necessary step to get back to where I was before the injury.

RACK PULL
Set 1: 135 lbs × 8
Set 2: 225 lbs × 5
Set 3: 315 lbs × 3
Set 4: 405 lbs × 3
Set 5: 495 lbs × 3
Set 6: 585 lbs × 3
Set 7: 675 lbs × 1
Set 8: 495 lbs × 8

Decided to break my template for a day and get back on the horse. I set up the pins below my knee and tested out what I can do. I wanted to stop at 500 and do some reps, but I had to push it today.

Ended up with 675 which is a long way off from my best at this height, but its a good start considering I haven’t pulled shit in over 4 months.

I used straps and went double overhand which is what I will be doing for a while for obvious reasons.

I can’t tell you how good it felt to do this today. All those months of rehab, braced up, losing size and strength is finally coming to an end…
