I always preferred Sumo to Conventional. It's friendlier for those of us who are "flexibly impaired"
Pain in this world is inevitable, but when it comes to achieving your goals, you can at least choose which pain you live with: The pain of discipline, or the pain of regret.

Yesterday I switched and did chest instead of upper back. I think I want to hit squats, bench and dead twice a week here and there and see what happens.

Anybody ever do a split like that?

I was feeling weak af though and my tennis elbow was furiously mad last night too.

Bar with bands x 2 sets
Shoulder warm-ups and band pull aparts.
135 w bands x?  X 3 sets. Very explosive.
175 w bands x 10 x 2
225 x 6-8 x 3
245 x 3
265 x 3 x 2

Incline barbell with db Inclined press
135 x 10 with 70 x 10 x 2
175 x 10 w 75 x 10 x 2

Jump ropes and helped kids learn the deadlifts.
Got a lot of work to do with them.
But they are starting to get interested in it.
Of anyone knows a easy way to teach kids please say.
Maybe you should TRAIN as hard as you HATE.

Wednesday
Ten mins of hell.
Been over a year since I tried this.
I had a big meal about two hours prior. Not the best of ideas but I tried as good as I could.
225 for ten mins I got 50. I tried to split it up and do half with sumo and half conventional.
I was beat after this. I will try this again in a week or two.

Yesterday I went In with the kids and did some light shoulders and light upper back.

This sounds brutal! I can imagine the hams, glutes and lower back become nice and pumped real quick!

Sorry for the delay.
Last Thursday was a little different than normal
I worked on my above head presses.
Barbell standing ohp with iron bull grips.
worked up to 165. Tried to keep good form. But again the tennis elbow is a real problem

Next I hit some db delt work, Various things Stayed medium weight and got a good pump and really warm.
Next was cirrus db presses.
I am really liking this and it proves to be harder than what it looks.
Worked up to 65 lbs for several reps.

Friday Daveh called and wanted to hit deads together so that is what we did.
I worked on sumo quite a bit too and ended up with a good session altogether.
135 x 10 x 2 or 3? Sumo on one.
225 x 8 x 2 sumo on one set
315 x 2 x 3
405 x 1 x 6 singles. This absolutely kicked my ass for some reason.
next I worked on form more with dave and that was exhausting as well.
I did manage to pull 315 sumo and I feel I should work on sumo a few weeks and see if that helps carry over for me.
I do get more drive from legs. 

Saturday was a simple day
Some arms and light legs just to work soreness out.
Helped workout with wife too.

Monday was a great day for legs.
Squats
135 x 10 x 2
225 x 5 x2
315 x 4 x2
365 x 3
315 x 10 I had more so I rested for about 5 or more mins and tried again
315 x 10. I think I had a few more but lungs could not take it any longer.

Leg press I did 100 reps of various feet placement without stopping and I was doing good to get it racked.
Unreal pump.
Hammer strength ham curls and weight abs and I was done.

That is always a good thing.  Hopefully she'll get bit by the iron bug.
