Missed training yesterday because I had no energy following a nearly sleepless night due to Madi kicking and squirming. A good night's sleep last night seems to have helped.
Rack bench press (7 holes, small bench) 3, 3, 3, 3, 3
125, 135, 145, 150(1), 150(1)
50 x rack bench (same set up) @ 105
Time = 7:21 (PR @ 105 = 8:04; PR @ 100 = 7:04)
I took what felt like long rests during this routine so that I could string together a decent number of reps between breaks. I started with 11 consecutive reps, followed by 5s and 4s until I got to 40 reps, then did doubles and singles with short breaks. I didn't check my watch until the end because I didn't want to panic and try to do a lift too soon, thus causing me to fail and waste energy. That strategy seemed to work well.
Max reps chin-ups @ 25lb
8, 5, 5, 4
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of kipping pull-ups; 8 inverted rows between each set
Time = 13:29
In the first round I did 8 pull-ups, then the remaining 2 after a very short rest. I only failed once while doing the pull-ups - the last rep of the 6 rep round. The rows got tiring very quickly and none of the rounds were unbroken. For the first 3 rounds I did 5 and 5; after that it was pretty much all doubles until the last round, which were mostly singles. Despite all that, I was able to move pretty quickly, thus a decent score.
Max b/w dips:
10, 7, 5
Felt good and full of energy today, probably because of such a restful night's sleep.
