Deads and July 4th training

Reverse Band Deads with green bands making the bar weightless at lockout.
worked up to 715 for 3 singles conventional. All were hard fought finishes at the top.
Went to Sumo for a few singles
535 X 1,
625 X 1
715 X 1
765 X half way up and had that "feeling" and made the decision to abort. Could have finished it, but would have had to change clothes.
close stance squats on squat machine:
2,3,4,5,6,7 plates X 8 reps (these are a nice way to finish off the legs after pulling) Hope these will help my quad strength out and help my conventional pull a little.

That was about all I had time for

Monday Benching
worked up to 415 in bar weight and 2.5 chains for 3 sets of 2 off a 2 board. All of these sucked and felt slow.
Close grip press with the slingshot on:
415 X 2 sets of 5 and 1 set of 6
Flat DB Press:
75,85,95,105 all for 8 reps
External rotator work: 4 sets of 15.

Felt like Crap most of the workout, but got a decent workout in. Now for the grilling! I am up to around a consistent 310 now, so we will see how much more my equipment will handle....
