Sigh. Watch the video, my instructions were pretty clear, I thought. LET ME FAIL, LET THE BAR FALL, I DON'T CARE! I was f'ing baffled when he started to touch the bar on the 11th rep and then basically grabbed it from me on the 12th. I had it, too, god damnit. Anyway, not much else to say about that and I still improved, nonetheless: 200x8 in week #1 cycle #1 to today's 210x12. One rep max calculator is putting me even closer to 300 now: 294lbs. Assistance work: 5 sets of 10 of 85lb DB rows. And 5 sets of 15,15,15,10,8 of 65lb DB bench.
