Training: Regular Phase, Cycle 2, Day 4

It was a festival of assclowns tonight. I try to be encouraging, and polite, and I always hope the lifting bug will stick with at least some of the New Year members, but for most of them, I can't wait for February to get here. I had a pretty bad day today, got to the gym a little later than I wanted, and the place just filled up, so I couldn't get to what I needed to get done.
DE Bench
Warmup - 5 mins elliptical, front and side raises

Bench press
2x15 @ 45
95x10
2x3 @ 135
8x3 @ 185
225x1
245x1
265x1
Speed was good on teh 8 sets of 3, but not great. The heavier lifts were easy.

Close grips
3x3 @ 235

Pulldown
100x12
4x9 @ 180

Seated DB clean
2x12 @ 25.

Frustrated I couldn't get to anything else, so I left.

Workout time: 4:10 - 5:05


I'm getting in early on Thursday. Count on it.

So, how am I doing against my goals? Well, my ME stuff is awesome, DE stuff needs a little work. I've been consistent, and I've continued mobility work, although I need to really keep after that. I haven't done anything for conditioning other than some long workouts, next cycle I have to get back to that.

I would like to hit a USAPL meet in DC in May, then another by the end of the year.
