    Long time no update

    Been lacking motivation lately indagym and with nutriton. Going to take a different approach as opposed to bulk/cut cycles that some of you will probably scoff at, i'm eating about 2.5k erryday atm which has me in a deficit. I suppose it is a cut, but just a long slow one while trying to get stronger and leaner.

    Starting BJJ next Thursday with a mate of mine and want to see if I can spark an interest in that since i'm wanting to get a lot fitter/leaner and also having a martial art under my belt would be pretty sweet.

    Training is gonna be a Push Pull Legs 5/3/1 with Squat/OHP on the same day. I think i'll add in more BW dips and pullups/chinups on my push/pull days


    Bench 5/3/1

    Think I started a bit heavy. Weird considering I was repping 2PPS for 3-4 the past couple weeks, but I won't dwell.

    67.5kg x 5
    80kg x 5
    90kg x 6

    Had more in me but dodgy bar/no spotter made me nervous.


    Incline DB Press

    32.5kg x 6, 5, 4

    +2.5kg for less reps


    Machine Flyes

    49kg x 12, 12, 10

    plus reps on set 2


    Skullcrushers

    Ezbar +27.5kg x 9, 8, 8

    +2.5kg for slightly less reps


    V-Bar Pushdowns

    50kg x 3 x 10

    +reps


    Situp Machine

    +20kg x 15, 12, 10

    i don't take it as you being a dick because its what I expected to hear.

    progress is what matters to me anyway, so if I feel these size 34 waist work trousers getting looser so i'm not busting out of them then I'll take that happily. I just keep this log up out of habit anyway to be honest.

    That was 2 months ago? Ridiculous

    Still training, now twice a week lifting. Last couple of sessions looked like this

    Deadlift & Bench

    Deadlifts

    142.5kg x 3
    127.5kg x 5
    115kg x 7


    Bench
    90kg x 3
    80kg x 5
    72.5kg x 7


    Pullups Overhand

    BW x 6, 5, 4


    Pushups holding elevated bars

    BW x 3 x 10



    Squat & Overhead Press

    Squat

    130kg x 3
    115kg x 5
    105kg x 7


    OHP

    50kg x 4
    40kg x 5
    35kg x 7


    Chinups

    BW x 3 x 8

    This is a massive PR for me, feels good that as my fitness improves my BW exercises do.


    Pushups

    BW x 20 -1min rest x 20 -1min rest- x 20


    Been at the Jiujitsu twice a week for the past 2 months now (wat where did that time go), only started paying attention to diet again a couple weeks ago and have dropped from 201lbs ish to 196-7. Just getting fitter and loving learning jiujitsu, seems more my kinda fighting style as opposed to kickboxing, though i'll start to incorporate more of that when I start sparring in one of the classes.

    Clearly my strength has taken a dip but i'm gonna stick with RPT as long as I can working in the 1-3,3-5,5-7 rep ranges for each set, resetting wherever I need to. Anyway i'll try to get back to logging because there is some amount of accountability that comes with it.

    Jiujitsu was sweet last night, last class for the next 3 weeks though because it's breaking for summer.

    Did a lot of throwing techniques and finished off with 20minutes ish of grappling. Still don't know any good arm/leg bars yet so my only ally was brute force which worked against the lower belt/smaller guys. Get onto my back and cross my arms grabbing the back of the collar, pulling em close and choking until goodnightsweetprince.

    Can't wait for it to start up again already.

    In other news down to 193.8lbs today from like 196-7 last week, though a lot of this is bound to be water.

    In the next few weeks that Jiujitsu is off i'll be lifting 3+ times a week instead of 2

    Needless to say I haven't lifted in the past month for the most part. Not going to try to make any excuses because there are none. So keeping sh*t simple and with a minimal of bullsh*t im off for the first workout in a push/pull/legs split. I'll update when I get home.

    Push Day

    Bench

    2 x 5 x 80kg
    2 x 80kg knew I had more in me so rested up a few mins and went for more
    4 x 80kg


    Incline DB Press

    8 x 20kg
    6 x 25kg
    6 x 22.5kg


    Incline Flyes

    2 x 10 x 10kg
    8 x 10kg


    Side lateral raises

    10 x 10kg too much swinging
    2 x 8-12 x 7.5kg


    Tricep VBar Pushdowns

    12 x 50kg
    10 x 60kg
    10 x 50kg
    9 x 50kg


    Decided to stick with the lower range of volume for most things since its my first day back. Really took it outa me, I couldn't get over how weak I felt, not only on the bench but with things like DB bench and shoulder raises. Feel like i was hit by a minibus today but that feeling will subside.

    Eating 2.8k for now and plan to adjust as the weeks go by so ill have enough food to gain strength/size. Looking through this log when it started i was benching more than i just did this time last year and im not happy with that.

    Let the gains begin

    I never want to stop training for any period of time again, getting back to it has to be one of the most painful things ever. Waking up in the morning aching all over yet knowing you'll be squatting in a number of hours is a bad feel.

    But here's been enough laziness in the past while so ill pull through

    Just left today and am going back to university for my final year at the end of the month so i'm looking forward to getting serious about lifting again. Still with the Jiujitsu though so that's where i'll get my conditioning. How you been? Gonna check your log out now and see for myself.

    aye I only did 4 sets of 15reps for calves on Saturday but I had trouble sleeping last night because I was afraid of them cramping if I did. Also woke up to piss in the middle of the night and don't think either of my heels touched the ground at any point.

    Was meant to do my pull session today but im far too sore, calfs cramping no matter how much I stretch and I have to just plummet into chairs instead of sitting down.

    Tomorrow I've got jiujitsu so I'll stretch alot before that and hopefully being on my feet for 2 hours will do me a world of good for pull day on Wednesday.

    Just got done dinner, lovely sirloin steak with pea & onion gravy. Glass of wine later with a film is in order as well as a nice hot bath. Going to try to wrangle a nice gentle sensual calf rub from the girlfriend too

    Pull day today, feeling much better after some cardio at Jiujitsu on Tuesday.

    Sumo DLs are on the way, think i'll get some videos since it has been a while. Starting light enough for 3 sets across of 2-4. I'd guess i'll go for 3 sets of 4 x 120kg but it all depends on how I feel

    pull day

    Deadlift

    Back to conventional, feels so hard but I'll stick with it

    60kg x 5
    80kg x 5
    100kg x 5
    120kg x 4
    120kg x 3
    100kg x 3

    I'll upload vids tomorrow but here my hips rose too fast but watching the vid I saw my knees I front of the bar before the pull. Seems like keeping the bar over my laces instead of at my shin is best for me with conventional.


    Chinups

    4 x Bw

    Planned to add 10kg and go for 3x 4reps but it quickly became apparent that it wasn't happening

    3 x +10kg
    5 x bw
    4 x bw


    Barbell Rows

    3 x 8 x 60kg


    Incline Curls

    10 x 10kg
    8 x 10kg
    5 x 10kg

    I didn't eat before this session today and I definitely felt it after Deads. Also feeling a bit under the weather with a cold so im not gonna get annoyed that I wasn't feeling the assistance work much.

    Pull Day

    Switched it to the start of the week so its far away as possible from squats.

    Deadlifts

    Conventional isn't getting much easier. Back isn't staying completely straight which is bugging the life outs me. Asked a guy for help with the form because he deadlifts conventional and he watched me and said that its probably a mobility issue with my hams and glutes and that I need to get my shoulders further back off the pull. I'm finding it hard as buck though.

    Gonna do some lower back foam.rolling, toes to hands and glute bridges beforehand in future. Still haven't got a video uploaded but I should be home tonight after jiujitsu and I'll do it then

    60kg x 5
    80kg x 5
    100kg x 3

    120kg x 5 +1 rep
    100kg x 3 x 3


    Chinups

    Using a fat bar these feel much more powerful

    3 x 6 x BW

    Gonna keep it between 4-6 so I'll add 5kg dangling from my waist next week and go for the same


    Barbell Rows

    3 x 8 x 65kg +5kg reps same


    Incline Curls

    10kg x 10, 9, 8, 6

    best feeling bicep exercise imo


    Rope Crunches

    80kg x 12, 10, 12

    like I said I've got Jiujitsu tonight, looking forward to that. Usually its Tuesdays and Thursdays but the Thursday class hasn't resumed yet so im probably going to hit up another one tomorrow night and postpone push day until Thursday

    Hard to balance with lifting but i'm trying, I'd sooner skip a lifting sesh than a jiujitsu class right now though, really love it.

    here's the vid of me doing 120 x 5, sloppy as hell. Need to flatten my back and get better leverage so my hips dont rise so fast. Also need to lock my knees out asap.



    below is a vid of me after some low back foam rolling and glute bridges trying to work on a lower hip start position, hopefully doing this will carry over to my work sets next week.

    Pull day`

    DEADLIFTS

    Testing for a 1RM with conventional, going with 3x3 70/80/90% for the main lifts.

    3 x 120kg
    1 x 140kg
    0 x 150kg
    3 x 3 x 100kg (for form)

    gave the 150 three good efforts so satisfied with 3pps as my 1rm right now. Sucks compared to sumo but practice will improve it. Form is getting better, pulling more vertically removing the horizontal aspect of the lift that shouldn't be there.


    CHINUPS

    6 x BW
    4 x +5kg
    4 x +5kg

    keeping with +5kg for 3 sets next week, going for 3x5.


    BARBELL ROWS

    3 x 8 x 70kg

    last set was hard, probably only bump 2.5kg next week and go for 6 cleaner reps over 8 messier ones.


    INCLINE CURLS

    10 x 10kg
    10 x 10kg
    9 x 10kg
    7 x 10kg

    adding reps to each set each week. Keeping on until 4 x 10 with 10kg.


    Was supposed to have a push session today but my forearm is swollen up from falling in Jiujitsu last night so took a day off to rest. Got Jiujitsu again tomorrow, so i'll train Push Friday and just incorporate Squats and RDLs.

    Haha just read over the last page of my log. Sporadic posting at best but what are you gonna do.

    Aside from this week I haven't lifted since I last updated this log, but i've been training BJJ a lot. Usually 6 days a week, a few of those days twice a day. Had a couple of competitions, and I know this sport is for life.

    As for my weight, i'm about 180lbs right now, quite a bit less muscle than before I started and my strength has taken a big hit. Personally I think I look better, but that's because I lost a good deal of fat with the muscle. I decided I want to get some of my strength back and get a bit leaner, which should drop me down from the <88kg weight class into the <82.5kg one.

    This is the routine i'm following as of this week, taken from this thread from one of Martin Berkhans old clients

    Back Day


    Deads - 2x3-5

    OHP - 2x6-8

    Chins - 2x4-6

    Back-supported rows - 2x6-8

    CG Chins - 1x6-10

    Chest Day

    BP - 2x6-8

    Inc DB Bench - 2x6-8

    Barbell Curls - 2x6-8

    Tri Ext - 2x6-8

    Leg Day

    Squat/Leg Press - 2x6-8

    Hamstring curl machine - 2x6-8

    Leg extensions - 2x6-8

    Calves (any exercise) - 1x12-16

    For those who want to read about the experience of an old M.B. client here it is http://www.reddit.com/r/leangains/co...an_client_ama/

    but the premise is all exercise performed RPT fashion, with only two work sets. Top set is maximal for 6-8 reps, next set is -10% for only 1 rep extra. no more.


    First workout was on Thursday and it went like this

    Chest Day 24th July

    Bench Press
    warmup sets
    70kg x 6
    62.5kg x 7

    Incline DB Press
    20kg x 8
    17.5kg x 9

    Straight Bar Curls
    30kg x 8
    25kg x 9

    V-Bar Pushdowns
    43 x 8
    36 x 9

    There you have it. Done in approximately 30minutes. My bench is so weak compared to what it was, but it will build up quickly enough. This was a couple days ago and i'm still very sore as you'd expect and leg day is tomorrow so it should be interesting to see what I can still squat for reps.


    Diet is going to be geared toward losing weight obviously, one i'm comfortably in the lower weight class and starting to look lean then i'll switch up the diet to gain around 2lbs a month with the same training.

    P.s. if you've never tried BJJ before, check out your local academies or mma clubs as most usually offer a free class, you might just get bitten like I did

    Damn man, 7 years ago. I just logged in and had a scroll through for ****s and giggles, amazing the support that everyone kept giving me after every workout.

    What happened? I got deep into brazilian jiujitsu training two 2 hour sessions 6 days a week and just let the weightlifting go by the wayside. As of now I'm weighing 83kg/183lbs which is fat compared to before Christmas for me haha, my walkaround weight for the last year was around 73kg since I moved to Vietnam 3 years ago and dropped from 82-73kg.

    As of now I haven't missed training jiujitsu 4-5 nights a week in all these years (bar 1 month for a broken ankle) and really want to get back to lifting again. Unfortunately Vietnam has just gone into lockdown again so gyms are closed and I'm limited to training with a few korean buddies on the downlow.

    Just for reference here are a couple of pics throughout my time in Vietnam (one where I cut down to 64kg for a National competition haha). In chronological order, fat me now.

    Cool trip down memory lane, if anyone's still around I'll start this up again as a Wendlers 5/3/1 beginner log.

    Hope everyone's been doing well in during this covidus time.

    Peace,
