    2nd November 2012

    Deconstructing my squat

    170lbs


    BB squats - oly bar - high bar position
    10 x bar
    10 x 60kg (132lbs)
    10 x 80kg (176lbs)
    6 x 90kg (198lbs)
    6, 6 x 100kg (220lbs)
    5, 5, 5, 5 x 110kg (242lbs)
    Used narrow stance because of knee pain

    GHRs
    10, 8, 8, 6, 5
    Hammies burning

    Leg extensions Tempo 5:2:5
    10, 10, 10, 10, 10 x 50kg (88lbs)
    Yeow quads!

    Calf presses - horizontal hack
    20, 20, 20 x 300lbs

    BW lunges and stretches

    75 minutes

    Late start at work today (just cos I'm choosing not to go in ---- I've got a day in the office and I'm sick of meetings)
    I took my time on legs.
    I squatted with the oly bar again and I'm starting to feel better about my back position during squats. I worked on keeping my head up, chest out, and weight evenly through my feet --- I realise after yesterdays' BW exercise on the cushions that I tend to lean back on my heels
    I still had hammie and glute DOMS from yesterday's pistols and Tuesday's deads, but it felt good after a little warming up.
    My left knee is still aching so I used a narrow stance - I don't feel quite as strong but it didn't hurt to squat deep

    110kg was good and I'll work on upping the reps
    GHRs were hard on my glutes --- I could feel my glutes and lower back getting tired by the last two sets and my hammies were on fire

    I took a vid of the last set. I used a small push off from the bench but I try to lift by contracting the hammier and glutes
    I know that this is technically not a GHR --- I've seen it called a Russian GHR before --- but it really has helped add mass to my hammies over the last year


    TGIF Guys! I'm looking forward to this weekend
    There's beautiful weather forecast, the 15 year old is staying with a friend tonight (Woot!) and on Saturday we are going to see the musical Jersey Boys

    Have fun at Jersey boys ( my Home town) i heard is really fun.
    IIFYM crews ....I Reps back.
    Traditional Wet Shave Crew / I can't hardly wait for tomorrow to come so I can lift then Wet Shave again.

    Theres the vid of the GHR. Those are MUCH slower than how I do it but the way you do it puts a much larger contraction on the hammies and glutes I would guess.

    And nice squats - glad you found a way to minimize pain while continuing to squat.

    Enjoy Jersey Boys!

    I love the GHRs and my hammies have nice DOMS today

    Thanks Raigs --- at least I knew what I did that aggravated it so I just have to be a bit smarter next time. I have so many aches and pains at any one time that it just something else to watch out for

    I go slow and really contract the hammies and glutes while keeping the lower back tight, so that most of the lift and all of the neg is controlled. The aim is to eventually do it all under control without a push-off! Hammies, glutes and lower back all get fired up!





    26th October 2012

    170.5lbs


    Rows



    Tennis ball rolling and stretching - Pyriformis and glutes
    Thoracic extension work

    Rear delt flyes - reverse pec deck Tempo 5:2:5
    6, 6, 6, 6, 6 x 61kg (135lbs)
    6 x 66kg (145lbs)
    Slow - great pump - shoulders felt great

    Yates Rows
    10 x 60kg (132lbs)
    10 x 90kg (176lbs)
    10 x 100kg (220lbs)
    10 x 110kg (242lbs)
    8, 8 x 120kg (264lbs)
    6, 6, 6, 6 x 130kg (286lbs)
    12 x 100kg (220lbs)
    130kg is feeling good


    Pendlay Rows
    6, 6, 6, 6, 8 x 90kg (198lbs)
    Form is feeling good now.

    V bar rows
    8, 8, 8, 8 x 4 plates/80kg/176lbs
    Could feel the lower lats burning

    HS shoulder press
    20, 20 x 5kg ps
    15, 15 x 7.5kg ps
    10, 10 x 10kg ps


    80 minutes


    I started off with the RDFs on the reverse pec deck because some b@stard was in my rack
    He was deadlifting with 1pps but at least he was using good from

    Starting with the RDFs was actually good --- it's a good exercise to get my shoulders primed and the delts felt 'tight' afterwards

    The yates rows are feeling good at 130kg so maybe I'll try with 3pps sometime soon
    Pendlays felt great
    These were the tips I got last week:
    1. Think 'Superman chest'
    2. Drop the hips for stability
    3. Watch the 'toe curls' i.e. keep the balance evenly through the feet
    Putting them into practice meant that the form felt really tight. More reps next week, and then I'll think about bumping to 95kg

    V bar rows really hit the lower lats

    Today while I was rowing I was checking out my profile in the mirror (as you do ) and I noticed that I have very little anterior delt mass now. My lateral delts and posterior delts have pretty good mass by comparison --- that's the total opposite to most people who have good front delts. I think that because I have been avoiding pressing of any kind because of the RC issues I've actually neglected the anterior delts and this in turn has contributed to my poor pressing, so I'm in a vicious cycle down as far as my pressing.
    I was also spurred on by seeing a young guy about the same size as me, repping 3pps on the HS shoulder press. I went over and used the machine and repped half a plate per side
    From now on I'll add in some shoulder presses even though they are light and hopefully I'll start to see some mass that might help me do something with my benching

    "Better to wear out than rust out!"

    Jane Fonda helped me to rediscover my core. ..... thanks for that Ken :rolleyes:

    i think your shoulders look good

    see pic



    and its natural that you wouldnt do too much work on front shoulder/chest exercises due to your surgery

    and youre rowing that 286 every single week like a machine!


    i notice youre pretty comfortable in that rep range

    maybe 225 x 15 or 315 for a double next time?

    Looks like a nice, killer shoulder session. I think you'll really benefit from the HS shoulder pressing. Looking forward to your moving up to 3PPS

    Andrew - that was a solid session.

    I need to throw V bar rows in - they are a great excercise.

    And for having such an injury you are doing fantastic. You're lifting heavy as weight and your anterior shoulder is by no means small.

    Let us know how the shoulder presses feel

    Thanks Ryou.....I just feel that my anterior delt mass is slipping while my rear delts are growing and that it's making me weaker on the pressing. That being said, I know that I shouldn't try to overwork the front shoulder and chest because of the ops

    And I am getting very comfortable with rowing the 286. Maybe I'll give the 3pps a go next time

    Maybe if I add 2lbs a month to each side I'll get there in 4 years

    Thanks! I enjoy the rowing day and I like the doing the V bars after the Yates and Pendlays because I can feel the squeeze along the whole length of my lats. My rear delts get plenty of activation.
    After those piddly shoulder presses my left shoulder is a bit achy this morning. I'll persist though and see if I can get some MMC going with the front of my shoulders

    5th October 2012

    170lbs


    RPM/HIIT cycle class

    50 minutes

    Wide-grip pull-ups tempo 5:2:5
    10, 8, 8, 7, 6

    Glute-ham/roman chair sit-ups
    15, 15, 15

    15 minutes

    We saw Jersey Boys last night --- it's a great show! We took the kids which made it an expensive night but they enjoyed it as well.
    The bad thing is that I remember a lot of those songs from when they were released
    My girls knew most of the songs because they get music from the 60s, 70s and 80s inflicted on them whenever we take a long car journey. They even steal my songs from my iPhone now

    My legs feel good after the HIIT session today. My left knee was a little sore but cycling is pretty easy on the lateral ligaments
    Glutes, hammies and lower back are tight
    The plan for this week is to aim for a 180kg deadlift 1RM. Not a biggie here but it's been a long term target since my shoulder ops
    I'll be doing chest Monday, arms Tuesday, Day-off Wednesday, Core Thursday am and then the deadlift session Thursday pm
    Hopefully I won't psyche myself out

    Great pull day with the shoulder press added in.
    I can see why starting with the RDF's would actually be a great start to the session.

    Excellent rows as per usual. Would like to see an attempt at 3pps.
    I'm sure you could pull a few reps.

    I think your shoulders look pretty good considering what you have to work around. But you make a good point that I'm sure is a factor.
    I know I've noticed my delts (anterior and medial) shrink since they were basically not hit at all for almost 2 months.

    If you can manage the shoulder presses with no issue, go for it.

    Nice session today too.
    HIIT, pull ups, and GHR's. Nice variety.

    I've heard good things about Jersey Boys. I never got to it when it was here in Toronto.
    Good luck on the upcoming 180kg dl.

    Thanks Tom! I should do the RDFs first off every time to warm up but if I see the rack vacant I've got to take it. I wish I had the strength to deadlift the 130kg from the floor and then to row it but I wouldn't last too long rowing outside of the rack

    I'll give the 3pps row a try next week -- probably on Friday the day after the deadlift session. No vids though cos I'm the sure that the form will be a little bit extreme
    I've shifted my focus to the rear delts lately and that has meant I've lost that front delt mass. It probably means that I have to up the work rate on the front pulls at the very least, as well as the pressing

    It was a great show --- I just bought tickets for my parents to see it during the week

    Thanks Michael! Yeah.....my legs are solid: I cycled for 20 years. The PL trainer (who is a big dude who can do a 250lb snatch) complimented me on the quads last session

    Thanks Alex! That one is form February before I went skiing (and before I broke my leg)
    I took a new one today in the same top --- not a lot of difference although it is a crappy pic

    I'm sort of psyching myself out at the moment
    I may get a vid --- I don't think that the trainer will mind, but I don't want to distract myself either!
    I'll have my phone with me and I'll see on the day!





    5th October 2012

    171lbs


    Chest



    BB close grip benching Tempo5:2:5
    6, 6, 6, 6, 6 x 60kg (132lbs)
    p!ss weak, but I'm going to work at it!

    V-grip pull-downs to chest Tempo5:2:5
    170 x 10
    200 x 8
    6, 6, 6, 6 x 220lbs
    Upper chest, serratus and arms hit

    Pec deck Tempo5:2:5
    8, 8, 8, 8, 8 x 87kg (191lbs) =PR
    Strict form on the pec deck

    Straight arm lat pulldowns
    8, 8, 8, 8, 8 x 180lbs rep PR
    Lats, serratus, tris
    Really felt good


    'Pen'/corner presses
    10, 10, 8, 8, 7 x bar+20kg/44lbs
    Middle and upper chest

    HS bench press Tempo5:2:5
    6, 6, 6 x 40kg ps

    Thoracic extension work

    65 minutes

    Just chest today. I decided to stick with the BB benching and go slow and strict on form, and see if I can gradually add some reps and weight
    Pull-downs, pec-deck and straight arm lat Pull-downs all felt really good and strong

    Pic today.

    Nothing special but I think that my legs are getting a bit thicker lately

    Damn man benching a ton of reps. You not messing around. It may be light weight but of you knock out so many reps its going to be just as good.

    Congrats on the PRs getting strong.

    Ah well.... the benching is a sideline but I should just tackle it head on and see what I can do despite the shoulder problems. The biggest issue for me isn't really the benching though, it's how to work my pecs hard enough to grow some mass

    It's still lingering, and worse today than it had been for a few days, but overall getting better. I'm stretching and taking the occasional NSAIDs and it's slowly getting better. The deadlift day on Thursday will be a good test for it!

    Thanks Ryou ---- I try to work around the limitations. I know that you're right about sticking at that weight and playing around with tempo/reps......another injury do not want but I always feel that I've got more in the tank on chest day. Legs, back, deads days are totally different!

    Well if you ever get to Aus, or I get to Hawaii we'll have to do that
    (you are in Hawaii, right?)



    6th November 2012

    170lbs


    Shoulders/Arms


    Dips Tempo 5:2:5
    8, 8, 6, 6, 5 x BW+55lbs
    12 x BW+22lbs
    BW x 12
    Dips to just above parallel and slow

    EZ bar curls Tempo 5:2:5
    10, 10, 8, 8, 8 x 30kg (66lbs)
    Slow - great pump

    EZ bar CGBPs Tempo 5:2:5
    12, 10, 9, 8, 6 x 30kg (66lbs)

    Inverted rows
    10, 10, 10, 10, 10
    Explosive up, hold at the top
    Serratus and bis


    Standing triceps push-downs
    10, 10, 8, 8, 7 x 160lbs
    Strict form - tris burning

    UH lat pull-downs Tempo 5:2:5
    6, 6, 6, 6, 6 x 200lbs
    Really slow.
    Lats, serratus, bis


    HS shoulder press Tempo 5:2:5

    12, 12, 12, 12, 12 x 10kg/22lbs each arm

    RC stretches


    75 minutes

    This was a late session for me. I missed the usual 6am gym opening (basically because I just couldn't be f@cked getting out of bed )
    I left work early and hit the gym at 5pm. It's always strange to see how different the crowd is at different times ---- compared to the morning session the dudes are younger and more serious about their lifting. I still know them all because these are the same dudes that I see lifting on a Saturday/Sunday morning

    I just hit arms and shoulders, trying to keep the tempo slow and the movements strict. I got to do the HS shoulder presses again --- if I go strict on these it's not too painful on the shoulders. As far as the shoulders go: I've been doing a lot of stretching, but I'm sure that the biggest factor helping to free up my shoulder mobility has been the stretching under load that has occurred with the oly bar squatting. My shoulder mobility is much improved, but the downside is that the GH joint is not quite as stable --- my shoulders, and especially the right GH joint, have been 'clicking' like mad lately. No pain, but 'clicking' = wear and tear IMO so I have to be careful

    Anyway, I enjoyed the session and the arm and shoulder pump was good
    Wednesday I'm planning to take off, in preparation for deads on Thursday

    Great chest session yesterday. Good weight and volume on that CGBP.
    If you can hit the chest like with the Pec Deck, I think that should really help in growing the chest. That was great!

    You weren't kidding about hitting your arms hard. wow!
    Dips were great and you hammered the bis and tris. Strong volume!
    I guess as long as the shoulders are not giving you much problems and the day after a workout you don't have any weird pains or tightness, that's positive.
    Although if the clicking becomes more apparent that may be something to look at.

    Awesome work in here, dr.
    Time to kill that PT session after a much deserved rest day.

    Nice session Fit dips to start off with added weight is awesome! Slowing the pace down provides a good burn as well. For a late session you did awesome

    I've been hitting my arms harder and trying to keep it strict so that I don't throw any strain on the shoulders. The dips are on a watching brief though ---- I always feel that I'm on the edge of straining what's left of the RC

    And I killed the PT session!

    Round 1 --- PT 'core' session


    TB rolling glutes and hammies

    Single legged deadlifts - cable weight 12 x 60lbs, 12 x 60lbs, 12 x 60lbs each leg

    High-low cable woodchops 12, 12, 12 each side x 70lb handle on cable. Rotate and chop, high to low
    Good for obliques and abs

    Plank single legged jack-knife with foot on a roller + push-ups 8, 8, 8 x each leg. Plank position, elbows on the ground, one foot on a roller board, and the other suspended - perform a jack-knife with the foot on the roller, push-ups at extension
    Abs and hip stabilisers totally activated throughout. Push-ups make it hard on the abs

    TRX - alternating single armed shoulder extensions Push up position with hands in the TRX straps -- extend the shoulder alternating arms. The trick is to keep the core tight and not to rotate
    Triceps, serratus and delts hit --- good stability work


    30 minutes

    Round 1 for today --- the core session. It's not a good move I know, because I'll be doing my deadlift session with the other PT in the afternoon.
    I was a bit annoyed this morning......firstly the session is for 30 minutes, so the trainer tells me would I mind waiting while he gets himself a shake. 3 minutes later he's back saying he's got a bust morning and needed some nutrition. 27 minutes left....then he tells me about this new programme he's written......fine but he's not training me. I probably got 20 minutes of his time and I felt really underdone. The bummer as well was that something 'pinged' in my right lower back while I was doing the jackknives

    Round 2 today is the one that matters - the PL session
    I'm supposed to be going for a 180kh deadlift today, but I've already got a demon sitting on my shoulder telling me I'm going to fail!

    I'll be reporting back in a few hours!

    Thoracic extensions on a swiss ball

    5, 5, 5 x BW+10kg
    Step-ups to 18" box + 10kg weight vest + two 16kg kettle bells
    12, 12, 12 x 42kg (92lbs)
    Power off the ground

    Thoracic rotations

    Stretching glutes, hammies, lats and triceps

    60 minutes


    Seventh session with the new trainer!
    My lower back was really killing me on the drive so I had the tennis ball stuck into my back the whole way

    The Deadlifts
    We got into the deads after the stretching. I felt my SI joint 'pop' during the hip rotations
    The lifts:
    150kg was painful. I leant forwards and lifted with my back. A spasm shot down my glute!
    170kg I concentrated on pulling up and keeping the glutes tight. No pain and he said it looked much better
    180kg I wasn't going to try for the 180kg but he said 'you've got it if you want', so I sucked it up and gave it a go!



    I did everything wrong......took too long on the set up, kept my head and chest down and lifted the bar away from my knees......but it still went up!
    We looked at the vid afterwards and he said I kept my lower back solid and the lift looked strong, even though I forgot to keep my chest up.
    It looked rough but it didn't feel unreasonably heavy
    Next stop 190kg

    Deficit Deads
    I used a snatch grip and stood on 4" plates. The idea was to keep a narrow stance so that I had to go deep, keep upright and keep my weight through my heels to stay balanced. They felt good and my back was fine. He was very happy with my form

    The lunges
    The first set felt awkward because I was clenching my right lower back because of the strain. When I started relaxing the lower back, but thinking about the glutes and core and keeping my chest up it became 'easy' --- slow and controlled down, then power up!
    I did 3 sets x 12 reps x 60kgs

    The Overhead squats
    The Overhead squats are challenging for me because of my limited external rotation. I held the bar with a snatch grip and was able to go ATG. This is a great execise for keeping tight through the whole core, hips and posterior chain --- any instability immediately throws you off balance. A great exercise for forcing me to keep my weight through my heels and drive up through the hips, keeping the torso more upright

    Accessory exercises
    The swiss ball leg curls and glute bridges were to help get the feel of the 'lockout' using hip drive. My glutes and hammies were sore after this
    The 'step-ups' with a weighted vest plus the kettle bells killed me! BW + 42kg/92lbs and I was absolutely out of breath
    The kettle bell swings are to help with explosive hip drive and lock out
    Other exercises are for core and upper body strength and stability


    Summary
    Today was a great day. I started off with the demons telling me I wasn't going to get it, but I got the 4plate deadlift! This has been eluding me and given everything that was against me today : lack of sleep; trained core this morning; tweaked my SI joint/lower back muscle spasm - I was very pleased with myself
    My form was sh!tty and it still didn't feel too heavy, so 190kg is the next stop. Maybe 200kg for the New Year!

    Our next session is on Tuesday next week!
    Can't wait!
