Really went all out on volume today. Going to the game later, meaning today’s going to have a cheat window in terms of diet, so wanted to maximize my chance for good growth from that. Squats were stronger than my last go. Bench was weaker than I thought it would be, but essentially I was testing there as well. I found a trap bar at the gym and went there, despite planning shrugs today because the trap bar deadlift is my favorite lift to do.

To add some additional volume, I did a bit of assistance work. I am a huge fan of wrist curls. Long ago, I followed a fitness board and one of the members (a competition strongman) was a huge fan of high rep wrist curls for grip strength and I love them too. Basically, the goal is it hit 50 reps in a single set before bumping the weight up. It gives your tendons a good workout and a big pump in the forearm.
