5/3/1: Overhead Press (150 x 0 = Fail): 7/12/12

12 Jul

C6W3D3: 7/12/12

Such bad days for rest this week!
Was able to take around 3 hour nap sometime after work but only around 4 hours sleep before I had to go to the gym.
Slept like crap last night.
Arrived at the gym feeling semi-tired still and knew it was going to be a weak day after I did my dynamic stretches. (5/10)
Struggled most of the session and it was upsetting that I stalled on the OHP today.
Will deload next session and hope to get stronger once I reach this weight again in a few cycles.

Pre-workout Warm-ups:

Foam Rolling
Dynamic Stretching

Main Lift:

Overhead Press:

Warm-up Sets:
45 x 10
65 x 5
80 x 5
95 x 3

Work Sets:
120 x 5
135 x 3
150 x 0 FAIL


The first 2 work sets felt heavy this time due to my lack of proper rest.
Attempted twice to at least get 1 rep on the top set with no success.
Think I could probably have done at least one rep if I was able to get enough rest the night before.
First stall doing 5/3/1 and deloading.

Assistance Exercises:

BBB Bench Press w/ Fat Gripz & superset with Pull/Chin-ups:
(50% of Training Max)

BP:45 x 10

BP: 120 x 10
Pull-ups: +25 x 7

BP: 120 x 10
Chin-ups: +25 x 7

BP: 120 x 10
Pull-ups: +25 x 5

BP: 120 x 10
Chin-ups: +25 x 5

BP: 120 x 10
Pull-ups: +25 x 5

1.5-2 min rest between sets.
Think the Fat Gripz made the press a bit easier or I am just doing it better.
Energy was running out for the pull/chin-ups though.

BB Curls w/ Fat Gripz:

55 x 12
55 x 12
55 x 12

1 minute rest between sets.
Nice easy sets.

Kroc Rows w/ straps:

Left Arm:
Warm-up Sets: 110 x (2 x 5)
Work Set: 110 x 22

Right Arm:
Warm-up Sets: 110 x (2 x 5)
Work Set: 110 x 22


Second time using straps ever and disappointed I was not able to do more.
Not enough rest = Poor Performance.
Next time.
