    Thoughts

    Been a bit under the weather the last few days, and my back's been sore so I didn't do this workout until Tuesday. People are getting sick at work and it's going around so I feel a bit run down. Wasn't a long workout but got a few things done.

    Still not feeling 100%, mainly just mild headache and achy joints, a bit lethargic. I'll just get this workout out of the way and I can rest until Saturday.

    Anyway, ended up smashing the bench press and getting 120 x 5 for 3 sets, and an extra set of 4. A good new PR there, I'm starting to believe I can turn my chest into something good from all this benching. I feel it's finally getting a chance to catch up with my triceps and shoulders, my grip is on the narrow side and I bench low to the chest in an arcing motion. This is best for my left shoulder as I've had an injury in the past and I can't bench wide grip at all.

    The rest of the workout went well, tried another PR on the incline press and they went up fine, had to get someone to hand me the dumbbells to my legs as I didn't want to risk jerking my back on the way up. I think I've done 42's before a while ago but I consider it a PR now after doing the bench press beforehand. I gave pullups a miss today and went for the pulldowns instead, they felt slightly easier than last time so that's good, the high machine row was also up although I've been going slower and getting more of a hold at the bottom, so I may want to reduce back to 52.5.

    Finished with my back rehab on the fit-ball and some triceps on the cable machine, I use the straight bar and lean forward while I push down with elbows slightly out, I feel this also works my chest which is good.

    My next workouts will hopefully be saturday/sunday, although I'll be wanting the Mr Olympia at home so I'll see if I still have time after that! pretty excited actually.

    Impressive bench PR and at a fairly light bodyweight to boot! Food is impressive as well. A burger sounds so good right about now.

    Nice pr's Dev, so much for the gotta squat and deadlift to get big bs. If anything, I think that your Avi looks incredible in part to the narrow waist. I think a lot of guys dead and squat too much sometimes and end up losing their V-taper.

    On another note, how can natties get excited watching the Mr. O? I feel it's so irrellavent to what natties have to do to look good.

    naw, I get plenty of inspiration here. I don't even care for natty shows tbh, I appreciate the work that goes into them, but the funny thing is I get more inspired by the pics that are posted leading up to the show than the pics from the show themselves.

    I think I posted a thread here one time about that. In my eyes, the tanners and oils do more to tarnish the physique than help it. Anyone else notice that phenomenon?

    As far as the Mr. O, I can't get inspired for someone's hard work if in my mind I keep wondering if they simply took and stacked more than the other guy. Just my opinion, don't want to turn Devs thread into gear/natty debate.

    if their tan is off yeah they look worse (smearing/not enough color). Tan makes a world of difference for enhancing your physique and bringing out your best definition.

    Had a great day watching the Olympia pre-judging yesterday, so much than I missed training. This morning I didn't have work so I was able to train early around 9am. I ended up missing some of the routines but as always you can never predict what the exact schedule will be, I mean they didn't even stream the 212 or the mens physique. Anyway great workout, bench press is increasing without fail, programming is going very well, time for a deload next workout and hopefully onwards and upwards from there.

    Thoughts

    Did bike sprints for the first time in about 2 weeks and it absolutely destroyed me, only after 3 intervals. I was knackered for the whole 40 mins afterwards and it was a struggle moving through the rest of the session! Looks like I'm going have to slowly add them back in, maybe only 2 intervals.

    Anyway my leg training seems to be going alright, although I'm missing out on abductor and adductor work now that they removed the vagina machine, I'm going to have to start adding exercises to hit these area's as It's a major weak point for me. My weight seems to have stabilized at around 83kg for the last few weeks now. I'm ahead of my target so I might keep maintaining until my strength stops improving and then start eating more.

    After watching some local shows and the Olympia it's hard fighting the urge to compete again, but I must stay strong and keep putting on the mass I need for next year, otherwise I don't think I can win.

    Read your last line and thought the same exact thing. Going to a show in real life is a major kick in the ass and fuel to the fire. Once you smell the tan and see competition you may go against it drives you to want to fire up prep.

    But with you making great gains, no need to even consider it. Your probably still holding glutes too for how lean you are!

    You could add some lateral goblet squats which hit the adductors fairly well and they wouldn't add much axial loading to your spine either.

    Edit: ahhh, gotcha.

    Good to see the competitive urge is coming back. That's a big sign your hormones and burnout from past comp are re-aligning. You must be doin it right.

    But with you making great gains, no need to even consider it. Your probably still holding glutes too for how lean you are!

    The urge never left! I just promised my gf I wouldn't jump into prep again so quickly lol
    Besides I had a lot of gains when I had my big bulk after my first contest, so I hope to improve again

    They look interesting, thanks for the suggestion I'll give it a go sometime.

    Got another PR on the bench, 122.5 is my new record, at the moment my system is the following;

    When 3 or 4 sets of 6 is reached I increase the weight by 2.5kg and do 1 or 2 sets of 3.
    The next workout I try starting with the new weight and increasing the reps to 4,
    The next workout I try again for 5.
    The next I try for 6 and see if I can get it over multiple sets, once I can do 3 or 4 sets of 6 I do a deload and then start again next week.

    I use the same progression with most of my other exercises, either adding sets to increase the workload or changing the weight and reps. I've noticed this works alongside an increase in bodyweight.

    Interesting, but when you're able to do 4 sets of 6 with new weight (122.5kg) do you deload to 120kg? And how do you continue from there?

    I probably should, but I usually do a light session of 100 4 x 6 then go back to doing around 120 for 6, or I may do it for two sets and then try getting 4 reps with the new weight.

    is your workout schedule more or less U/L/off/U/L/off/

    also interesting progressive overload. I may steal that. Do you use it only on big 3 lifts?

    my current progressive overload is just 3x5 straight set and if i hit 3x5 i increase the weight.

    It's U/L/off/U/L/off/off.

    For other lifts I do sets of 6-12 for upper body or 8-20 for legs, basically once I think I've increased I will try the next weight up and try to build to the same reps. I also mix sets with the old weight higher reps and the heavier set with less. Usually I get slightly better each time I workout, if not I'll do a lighter day or deload and try again next week.
