    Back:

    Deadlifts:

    465x3
    465x2
    465x1

    I've been stuck on this weight for a while now. I only have two days rest between legs and back so I think I might do fewer sets on leg day. Probably 3 sets on lunges and SLDL's instead of 4.

    Barbell Shrugs:(Behind The Back)

    330 for 4x15

    BB Rows:

    200x5
    200x5
    205x5
    205x5

    T-Bar Rows:

    135x20
    160x15
    165x12

    I finally found a good corner in the gym so I might switch back to BB T-Bar Rows.

    Chin-Ups:

    BW+15lbs. x 6
    BW+17.5lbs. x 5
    BW+20lbs. x 5
    BW+25lbs. x 5

    Lat Pulldowns:(V-Grip)

    137.5kg for 3x12

    Abs.

    There are plenty of things to do for DL if you are at a plateau.

    First off. Where is your sticking point? Off the floor or at lockout?

    Of floor do deficit deads.

    At lockout try rack pulls, or do DL w/ Chains/bands. Build that back up more too.

    OR. You can look into a PLing routine like some sort of peaking cycle.

    Good work btw. DL weight is pretty good.
    Boom

    Yeah I think I'm gonna start doing deficits. I've been doing rack pulls. On rack pulls I'm up to 525 for 3x3 and 405x10. But also I'm going to school in West Virginia and theres a rediculous amount of hills and alot of walking to get around that I'm not used to. I think its kind of been affecting me. Usually after leg day I'm sore the daay after if at all and then it gets better each day or by the 2nd day the soreness is completely gone, but since I'm walking so mch I've noticed after leg day and the following days the soreness usually gets worsse each day and I think my legs havnt been completely recovered and ready to go when it comes time to DL and I usually swithc off every week between rackpulls and dl's but ive rackpulled for the past 3 weeks cause my legs were just too sore to dl. and I only have two days between squats and deads. So I think I'm gonna do fewer sets for legs like I said above. How much of a deficit would you suggest?

    Sounds like a bitch with all the extra walking. Lowering volume might be good for sure.

    No more than a 4" deficit. That's the sweet spot imo, try 4".

    Friday, September 30th, 2011

    Back:

    I realized the other day that ever since Ive started deadlifting I havnt had a single workout where I did not do rackpulls or deadlifts. So today I decided to give my back and legs a little break and just not do rackpulls or deads and just do a bunch of rows, pullups, and pulldowns, and I loved it. I think from now on every so often just through in a day where I don't do either one.

    BB Rows:

    185x10
    190x8
    195x8

    BB Shrugs:(Behind The Back)

    335x15<---NEW PR
    340x12
    345x10

    T-Bar Rows:

    Finally found a really good corner to put the BB in so now I'm doing it BB instead of that dumb machine

    215x12
    220x10
    222.5x8

    This is without the weight of the bar. From now on I'll be adding up the weight without the weight from the bar

    V-Handle Pull-Ups:

    BWx15
    BWx10 plus about 5-6 partials till complete failure
    BWx6-8 plus about 5-6 partials till complete failure

    When I say till complete failure I mean till I literally can not even pull myself up even an inch.

    Lat Pulldowns:

    137.5 kg x 12,10,8

    Cable Rows:

    Don't know the weight so I'll just post the number that was on the stack. I'm gonna email the company and ask them about the weight. Or if anyone else that could tell me thatd be nice too.

    11 setting x 15
    13 setting x 10
    15 setting x 8


    Abs.

    Awesome workout. Pump was rediculous in the traps, middle of my back and lats were feelin huge. I think I'm going to go back to taking a preworkout almost everyday I lift.

    Nice job bro, those BB rows must be strict and you must be near 90 degrees bent. I bet you can use a lot more weight given your other lifts.

    I don't count the weight of the bar on T-Bar rows. I just count the plates lol. Most I've done was 6 plates for 12 I think. Don't really do them that much.
    Boom

    Alright ill probably stop counting the bar then. And yeah I'm basically 90 degrees bent when I do rows. I feel it alot more in my back than if im like at a 45 degree angle. I might be wrong but it seems like the range of motion is greater when youre 90 degrees.

    Do what feels best for you.

    For some reason I like to stay @ about 45 degrees and use a bit of leg drive, but still keep it somewhat strict. I use straps too because I get better MMC this way. I'm able to use 275 for reps fairly strict. I also do cheat rows like babyslayer does and they work for me also. I can do 365 for reps on cheat rows, but it looks a little dumb. Still makes my back big and strong. Oh and I use a wide grip, pinkies on rings.

    Yeah I use a closer grip and I try not to cheat too much. Towards the end of my set ill cheat a bit. I like to try to stay as close to 90 degrees as I can. I use to do kind of like you do and stay aroudn 45 degrees but I feel it alot more in my back when I'm more bent. I guess its all just personal preference and what ever works for you.

    Shoulders/Biceps:

    DB Shoulder Press:

    55x15
    60x10-12 <--Not an all time PR, but I couldn't get this late in the summer and a few weeks ago. I'm finally getting my strength back after this cut.
    65x8 <--Not an all time PR, but I couldn't get this late in the summer and a few weeks ago. I'm finally getting my strength back after this cut.

    Arnold Press:

    45x10 <---Last week only got 9 on my first set
    45x8
    45x8

    Front DB Raises Superset w/ Lateral DB Raises:

    20's for 3x8-12

    BB Rear Delt Raises:

    135 for 3x10

    DB Curls:

    40's x 10
    40's x 8
    40's x 6

    Hammer Curls:

    40's x 12

    30x10
    30x10

    Real happy with this workout. Shoulders got very weak on my cut this summer but strength on DB press is almost back to where it originally was. Not to sure about military press though.

    350x12-15

    I went apeshiit on these today. Don't what happened but something just kicked in and easily beat last weeks lift.

    220x12
    225x12
    230x12

    Still not strong but big improvement from last week. (Weight of bar not included from now on)

    Shoulders/Biceps:

    DB Shoulder Press:

    60x15<--Might be a PR for current BW (185)
    65x11<--This also might be a PR for my BW right now.
    70x4

    Don't understand how I can get 65's for 11 and then 70's for only 4. I did mean to only do 3x10,8,6 but 60's and 65's were lighter than I thought so I pushed out a few more reps. Maybe if I just stuck with 60x10 and 65x8 I would have been able to get 70x6.

    Behind The Neck Press:(Smith Machine)

    45lb. plate + 5lb. plate on each side x 12,10,8,6

    Front DB Raises:

    25's x 15
    30's x 12
    35's x 10

    Cable Lateral Raises:

    3x12-15

    Rear Delt Flyes:

    15's for 3x12-15

    BB Bicep Curls:

    75x10
    80x10
    85x10
    90x10
    90x10

    Hammer Curls:

    35's x 12
    40's x 12
    45's x 8-10
    50's x 6

    Did something to my left shoulder and I feel a bit of pain when I raise it. Gonna really try to make it heal as fast as I can, massage it, ice it. Elevate it when I sleep. Gonna finish up the rest of this week and maybe go a bit lighter on chest day and next I'm going to deload. Great workout though.

    Shoulder actually is completely healed up. Pretty weird. I woke up and there was no pain at all anywhere, can move it it any direction and feel nothing so thats real good. And it wasn't because the behind the neck stuff. I noticed it after my very first set of DB shoulder press but I decided to finish my workout anyways. Still deloading next week anyways. Its about that time.

    Yeah, Im really glad im deloading next week though. My elbows were killin me today. On bench and all tricep exercises they were just so achey and sore. I'm not even sure if I should bother going to the gym next week to deload, maybe just not go at all. Might need to get some joint support too.

    Aware me on anderson squats.

    Also, why no love for strict press? Its the king of upper body movements imo. Would be sad if you stopped doing it.

    Good work brah.

    I'm still going to do them, but I'm just going to stop getting pissed and surprised if I move pussy weight. I'm just not gonna care at all about how much weight I'm doing. All my lifts are going up besides military press. And anderson squats are squats starting at the bottom portion of the squat. So I set the safety bars at a certain height, get under the bar, and push the weight up. Its to help getting out of the hole.

    Heres a vid. I start a little lower than this guy does.

    Will have to try those Anderson squats fo sho after this Russian program I'm doing. Are they tougher than normal back squats?

    Also, try 6x3 for strict overhead press (6 sets of 3) then add in higher reps at the end, like 3x10 or something. Do it 2x a week and start lighter and try and add weight every other time on the heavy triples. Boring, but it works for me. Mainly doing that and then heavy singles got mine to 215. SOHP needs high volume/frequency/intensity imo.

    You can even do it 3x a week I bet. But probably lower the volume a bit.
