Bump for 1/1
Happy New Year's all!
I'll second this.
Flat BB Benchpress hates me. Slight incline or decline makes things 100x easier. If you watch the video, your setup will mimic a slight decline and probably help immensely. ...
I did something a little more complicated. Kept the same A/B rotation, but switched up the...
Yup, still alive. Got things in the plans for a run at a little bit of fat loss starting next week. Will be switching stuff up and am unsure if I'll be logging online in dual journals or not. May...
Deadlift 4x4 @ 305# Heck yeah! 60 seconds rest between sets is getting dang difficult. Last set took a great deal of willpower.
Squats 6x6 @ 185# snap, crackle, and popping. Damn you finite...
Thanks. They all don't have to be great, just done. Although I still don't consider any of my lifts "strong" yet. I'm chasing a 1pps OHP, 3pps squat, and a 4pps dead. Screw bench.
Did a quickie session of 25 min on the bike, then some light arm & chest work, and finished with some overdue stretching. Life's good.
Consistency trumps almost everything. Even a "punch the clock" session is better than taking a day off (unless it's a legitimate health concern). Momentum is worth its weight in gold. ...
Not 100% today. Life got in the way early yesterday, and kinda went down hill from there. So a day late, and a dollar short.
Squats 4x4 @ 245#, never made it there. Warm ups to 185#, then...
Yup. Conventional Deadlift. 6x6 gets the heart pumping, fo sure. The 8x8 day is a thing of beauty. Isn't as bad as you'd think. Keeping the rest periods short really limits your poundages until...
Milk all you can out of the original program, do the three deloads and ramp back up, then if you want to stick with the 5 compound lifts in a slower progression, it has worked well for me. I also...
Haven't seen much difference in squats in the vff as much as doing deads. Worlds apart. I got some other feedback regarding the closer grip, and it just seems to work for me and my...
OHP 4x4 @ 120# Got every rep this time. Progress.
Deads 6x6 @ 235# Lost grip strength on fourth set, straps to the rescue.
Squats 8x8 @ 115# Regression, but I'm Ok with it.
BOR 4x4 @ 185#
Tough. Started at 195#, as that would be my normal progression, but barely got 2, pulled off the nickels and ended up doing 6 sets.
Squats 6x6 @ 185#
Shirt was soaked through by...
Very true adage:
Beginners do advanced workouts
Intermediate do intermediate
Advanced do beginner workouts
Took me 2 years to figure out Stronglifts 5x5 actually yields better results than...
Squats 4x4 day, vid of the first 2 sets at 245#, a pr at this depth (previously was doing closer to half squats). Aside...
Friday is better.
Squats 4x4 @ 245#
OHP 6x6 @ 100# Tough, but got all reps
Deadlift 8x8 @ 185#
Simple morning today. Uploading a quick YouTube video of the squats, any feedback is always...
Yup, keep a good pace and it actually helps blood flow and the majority of the time, little to no doms the next day. Probably the only cardio I get, but it's enough for me.
Benchpress 4x4 @ 180#
BOR 6x6 @ 135#
Squats 8x8 @ BW*
After my Monday's session, took the wifey out for a hike with a picnic lunch at the summit of a nearby hill. About a 1000' elevation gain...
Deadlift 4x4 @ 295# (Fail 4,4,4,3,3,4)
Squats 6x6 @ 185# Tough.
OHP 8x8 @ 75#
Little stuff, etc
