If I recall correctly, there was no chalk in the gym this week. There are few things that frustrate me more than not having chalk in a weightroom. . . I mean, don’t get me wrong, there are tons of things in the weightroom that frustrate me (see: 95% of the people in the weightroom), but not having chalk is like taking a shower without soap, brushing your teeth without toothpaste, or thinking that single-ply toilet paper is a good idea. Superimpose this on me having the sweatiest palms ever, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Push-Press 3×3 225lbs *was planning on doing 5 sets, but my form was crappy for set #3, so I called it
Bench Press 3×5 255lbs *I need a lifting partner to make these bench sessions worthwhile
Pendlay Row 5×5 185lbs
DB Bench Press w/ 1-Arm Row 2×10 100lbs
DB Laterals 2×10 30lbs
Cable Tricep Extensions w/ Cable Bicep Curls 2xAMRAP (110lbs; 25&20, 15×2)
Hang Clean 5×3 215lbs
Back Squat 5×5 225lbs *high bar, narrow stance
RDL 5×5 275lbs

Hang Clean 155×3, 205×2, 235×1, 265×1, 285×0, 0 *I’m not saying chalk would have made a difference here, but I know I would have at least had a more effective pull with the weight. I was able to get under on both attempts, but there is no way I performed them safely.
Power Shrugs (straps) 285×3, 305lbsx3x3
Hang Clean & Jerk 2×5 155lbs *my work capacity is crap.
