Block 7, Wave 1 - BP

No morning class today and pouring rain made for an unscheduled nap on the couch for half the morning.  Only having one of my two scheduled afternoon classes led to early training and I was subsequently grumpy most of the day.  This whole week is one big schedule change though, since I'm in the clinic all day Tuesday and have to go in early on Wednesday so I'll have to train late on Wednesday after classes are over and then Friday AM before my early lab that day.  Sometimes I wonder if they deliberately change our schedule willy nilly just because that is what can happen to us once we graduate and start working.

Bench Press








5x315 - All sets from the empty bar on up felt off and I could tell I was not performing up to where I should be, but I couldn't figure out what else to do to get the people going.  I guess I should have busted out the ammonia again.

Trap Bar Rows




6x230 - Haven't done these in forever so today I was just working up slowly to see what felt like an appropriate weight.  I didn't get to it, but at least I know where to start next time.  I had to use the high handles to keep from hitting myself in the gluteus maximus with the back of the bar each time.

Fat Gripz Close Grip Bench




2x4x265 - I would have normally used the axle for this, but as it is currently at the Unit, fat gripz were an excellent alternative.

Rollouts/Back Extension/High External Rotation



I really wanted to push the prowler to atone for my sins of sucking at pretty much everything today as well as to tire myself out to the point of no coherent thoughts, but it is at the Unit.  I believe I am going to have to rectify this situation post haste.
