Flying home from Boston after a good weekend with the cousins. Spirit Air is so ghetto they don't even have their own gate.

Glad you had a good weekend. I've always wanted to visit Boston. Seems like a cool place.

I'm flying Spirit this September and I'm a little worried. Other than the no-gate thing, how are they? I mean, you get what you pay for, I know, and I'm paying them to deliver me so I can have a great time in New Orleans. But I still don't want to be miserable and frightened. Or, at this point, I guess I need to prepare if I'm going to be smooshed and caviler about my safety.

There's nothing unsafe, of course. But they do seem pretty horrible when it comes to check in, and they charge an arm and a leg for baggage. I've never been to NOLA, but I plan to!

Push 1 Sets Reps Weight Total Reps
Flat Dumbell Bench 5 3 70 16
Flat Dumbell Bench AMRAP 1 AMRAP 56 12
Seated Dumbell OHP 3 10 35  
Incline Dumbell Bench 3 10 45  
Standing Tricept Extensions 3 10 45  
Shrugs 3 10 60  
Lateral Raises 3 15 12  
Close Grip Dumbell Press 3 10 40  

 

So flat dumbbell bench was a bit of a shit show.  My first time using 70s; I used 60's previously, but it was definitely time to move up.  On my 4th set, when I laid back to get into the press position, the dumbbells got a little wide on me and I came pretty close to dropping them.  I kinda pressed them together (almost like a fly), but once I was out of position it was tough to recover.  70's are really heavy, and that one moment of trying to wrestle the weights into the proper position really jacked up my strength for the rest of the workout.  

 

As a result, I never did the 5th set with the 70's, but I was able to do 4X4 previous to my issues.  It's clear that I have the strength to press that weight, but I'm not sure I have the other muscles in order to control the weight properly, especially when I'm flopping back and hoisting the weights up all at once.

 

I was pretty damn pleased with 12 reps using 60's for my AMRAP set, because I was still feeling the repercussions in my shoulders and pecs.

Leg day, baby. Doing squats holding onto 85s was pretty tough. Apparently my left hand lacks grip strength.

God damn did I come close on the 5X5 with the 45s. Just couldn't quite do it. That definitely hit my AMRAP set. I did 3 less than last week. But I did 4 more with the 45s, so I think all can be forgiven!

I can't wait to finally get a gym that I can do proper barbell OHP with (and squats and bench).

I'll be testing 1RMs as soon as I do.

Prediction:

OHP: 130

B: 200

S: 240

DL: 325

That would put me more or less where I was 2 years ago. Considering I haven't been training for strength, that would be a good sign of how much mass I've actually added.

I made those 70s my BIATCH. Doing 5 sets of 4 is a huge PR. Even with that PR, I was able to then get a PR with 60s.

For some reason my head looks super small in this pick. Must be because my muscles are so swole.

And you even make the door behind you look small.

Been traveling the last few weeks. Managed to get some decent workouts in.

Was able to do 115x3 on OHP (barbell). Also recently deadlifted 245X5 extremely easily.

Next week I start a new job where I can finally use barbells consistently! Also just commissioned a diet from a super knowledgeable trainer friend, so I'll be starting a two month cut. Time to officially lose the gut, so I start an epic bulk in the fall!
