so annoyed spotter completely ****ed up my final set. I said "I am going for 12 shouldn't need any help thanks". At the 10th rep he starts pushing the weight up with me. WTF? So I got 9 reps plus 5 half reps I'm just gonna call it the 12 I was shooting for for tracking purposes. God how hard is it to just not touch the ****ing bar
3 sets of 10 bodyweight
some tricep pushdowns and cable crunches then ran a mile and out
When I used to train at public gyms, people would always **** up. I absolutely hate when people put their hands underneath the bar and say its all you.
Yep. About a year ago when my bench max was probably 200 tops I went for a set of 185 (got 3 reps at this weight the time before) and this dude spotted me and I threw up 8 reps "all me" and was like holy **** what a great set!
That's when I learned "all you" is usually like 75% you lol
Feel way better about DL form. I think the main problem was my belt was too tight and wasn't allowing me to get low enough at setup and was also pushing me forward. A guy I really respect on bb.com pmed back and forth with me and said everything looked great pre-belt and suggested to loosen it and he was spot on. Loosened the belt a notch and put it a little higher and it was awesome. A few of the reps look awkward thanks to the ****ing hex plates hate those so much and am strongly considering buying some bumper plates to bring. So anyways hoping as I go heavier I don't ever revert back to the horrible 1rm form last week.
oh also tried both conventional and sumo and just can't do either comfortably. if I'm going to DL it has to be at that width which may seem awkward to some but to me pulling conventional is the most awkward thing ever my body just isn't built for it

130x5 (3+) wanted 6 here, bad last rep could have had it
BB Shrugs: 2 second hold
Was kind of pissed at my OHP numbers compared to when I did starting strength (worked up to 130x3x5 in SS) and was wondering why they were so far behind and then I remembered my ROM is full now compared to 90 degrees back then so that makes me feel better. Probably could do a decent amount more if I didn't bring the weight all the way down to my chest.
diet yesterday, not sure if the macros or cals are screwed up but one thing I found online was 56g fat, 120g carbs, 94g protein and 902 calories which obv doesn't add up so may have eaten 400 calories more or less p/c/f oh well:
