Day 2 1 Apr 09

Holy-moly am I stiff. My hamstrings, quads, and glutes need lots of work. It took sometime today before I started to loosen up.

Warm Up - 5 Minutes Arc Trainer,
Warm Up Squats - 135lbs/8 reps, 225lbs/6 reps.
Squats - 6 sets/5 reps/275lbs (first two sets no belt).
Bench Press - 6 sets/6 reps/205lbs.
Deadlifts - 8 sets/1 rep/335lbs (first 4 sets no belt), 4 sets/1 rep/365lbs.

Squats and Bench Press feel good but I'm still playing with deadlift technique. One of the belted sumo sets I managed to explode into the movement like I was explaining before. The bar went up very easy. I couldn't duplicate it for the other sets. I still need more practice.
