|My goal. Full bear mode.|
Progress through the second cycle of my deadlift special program:
Sumo Deadlift: 445x1 --> 455x1
Back Squat 300x2 --> 315x2
Bench Press 235x1 --> 235x1, fucking bench press
Rack Pull/Shrug 450x3 --> 460x3
Dips 90x4 --> 100x4
Chinups 70x4 --> 75x4
This month was a bit disappointing, but I made gains despite a string of terrible workouts. My hands/grip have started to become my weakest link. I have started to file down my callouses so my hands do not bleed after every pull session. Honestly, I am happy with my deadlift progress as long as I am putting at least 10lbs a month to my max.
I am very happy with the way my squats have been going. My 'weakest' lift confidence wise now feels natural.
The bench press, as usual, can go fuck itself.
