crappy day and really didnt have time to get a good workout, but none the less put up some good weight on good mornings.

been really focusing on bench lately and it paid off tonight. ive started doing rev db flys, skull crushers and started doing the 10X2 method on my RE days.
bench: 135x5x3, 165x3, 185x3, 225x3, 245x3, 265x1, 275x1, 295x1, 315x1, 325x1
rev db fly: 20x5, 30x6x6x6x6
skull crusher: 80x5, 100x5x5x5
hammer curls: 30x5, 45x5, 55x3x3x3(need to drop back down to 50 for better results i think)
was short on time a only did one ab exercise and didnt hit my calfs like i usually do. tomorrow is deads and im hoping for a 425+ lift at least. form on deads still needs a little work to be automatic and not such a mental challenge.

today was another dissapointment, think ive laxed my last 2 deadlift weeks by not doing the RE work on fridays. still got a decent number today of 425 and really coulda gotten more but my form got to loose on the final attempt and my grip slipped.
deadlift: 135x5x3, 165x3, 185x3, 225x3, 245x1, 265x1, 275x1, 315x1, 335x1, 365x1, 385x1, 405x1, 425x1, 435x0
good mornings: 135x5, 165x5, 185x3, 225x5x5x5
db pullover: 80x5, 100x3, 105x5x5x5
smith calf: 135x5, 185x5, 225x5, 245x5, 265x5x5x5
few core exercises
on my RE day im going to do around 10sets of singles at 80% of my max. would doing sumo deads or regular deads help my strenght the best. im thinking since im not advance yet, sticking to regular deads would be very beneficial. what are your thoughts??
