Enough Decline?

Don’t seem to be feeling any effects from the long rowing session yesterday. In the garage before 1pm.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • Bar Hangs

OHS (55X1 Tempo)

  • 2×45#
  • 2×75#
  • 2×95#
  • 2×115#
  • 2×135#
  • 2×150#
  • 2×165#
  • 2×175#

Still able to make a 10# jump this week. My fingers really dig into my palms after holding the bar overhead that long, especially with the heavier weights. Close grip felt better today, probably from the hanging I did to warm-up. Wasn’t even close to my snatch grip width on the final set, so my mobility must be improving.


5 Sets

  • 12 Curls (Fat Gripz, 55#)
  • 6/6 Single Leg RDL (135#)
  • 15 Decline DB Bench Press (50#)
  • 12 Back Extensions

After the fat curls it started to get hard to hold the bar through the Romanian deadlifts. I think it’s time to switch from the declined dumbbell bench press to something more challenging, especially after 4 weeks. Maybe I’ll go to inclines.
