Day 5 8 Apr 09

A great training day. I stepped up the intensity a bit because the gym I use is closed Good Friday. Another great reason to have my home gym. Here's today.

Warm Ups
Squats - 4 sets/5 reps/285lbs, 2 sets/5 reps/295lbs.
Bench Press - 1 set/6 reps/215lbs, 2 sets/6 reps/225lbs, 2 sets/6 reps/235lbs, 1 set/6 reps/245lbs.
Deadlifts (alt sumo and conv) - 12 sets/1 rep/365lbs.

Actually the last two conventional deadlifts were done without a belt @ 435lbs. With the gym being closed on Friday I will be lifting at my parents house where I can do the deadlift portion of my program. I'll also do some high rep low weight squats. I'm looking forward to spending a great long week end with my wife and kids.

FOund your blog. I had a home gym for powerlifting for about 10 years. Best $500 I ever spent. Had about 800 lbs of weights and olympic bench and squat rack. Dip station and military bench. DO IT! Only thing you miss is a spotter. Good luck!
