Training Log: 3/4/11

Strength
Alternate between two movements:

Deadlift 5×3 – Progressive loading
Rest 2 minutes

Dumbbell Press 5×8 – Sets across
Rest 1 minute

Cash Out
5 sets of strict knees-to-elbows

I ended with 365 lbs (PR) for the deadlift. A pound for every day of the year. I was pretty pleased with that. I used 30 lb dumbbells for sets across on the press. I should have gone heavier on that. The knees-to-elbows went like this: 11, 8, 7, 7, 3. The last set I focused on lowering my legs slowly for two seconds on the way down. I have tendency to swing like a pendulum when I do knees-to-elbows, so on the last set I tried to correct that by slowing everything down on the descent.
