    COVID-19 Workout #59

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squats

    Left leg:
    71's (142lbs) × 4,4,4
    60's (120lbs) × 8

    Right leg
    71's + 25 lbs weighted vest (167lbs) × 4,4,4
    60's + 25 lbs weighted vest (145lbs) × 8

    Pullups

    BW x 7,7

    Dumbbell Romanian deadlifts

    123.5's (247lbs) x 5,5,5

    Put on the 25lbs vest and did 3 reps of dumbbell deadlifts with the pair of 123.5lb DBs (so 272 lbs of extra weight .....this is similar to a deficit trap bar deadlift). May start doing these....I can load up a pair of dumbbells up to around 131 lbs esch so 262 lbs. Hmmmm...since the additional weight wont be on the bar cant call it a pure deadlift but probabky make it a bit more challenging than just the dumbbells....like a hybrid deadlift/squat)

    Dumbbell shrugs

    123.5's x 8,8

    Two arm bent over dumbbell rows

    100's x 5,5,5

    COVID-19 Workout #61

    Weighted Chinups

    +30lbs x 5,5,5

    One arm dumbbell rows

    140 x 7,7 per arm
    111 x 8,8 per arm (no straps and no 25lbs plates on DB)
    70 × 5 per arm (Fat Gripz)

    Dumbbell swings

    127.5 x 5,5,5

    So turns out that there is an exercise called dumbbell swing that is different from the type you see mostly with kettlebells. These are bastardized KB swings and not true DB swings

    One arm dumbbell overhead press

    Left arm:
    60 × 3,2,3
    52.5 × 6

    Right arm
    67.5 x 2,2,3
    60 x 8

    Resistance band Perfect Pushups

    Undersun Light + X-Heavy band x 7,6
    Undersun Heavy + Light band with 25lb vest x 4.....took off Lght band and did 4 more reps

    One arm dumbbell suitcase holds with 127.5lbs....twice on both sides

    Weighted ab wheel rolllouts

    +25lbs vest x 15,15

    Found a small hole in my vest and some beads came out, popped a few in, taped it up and weighed it. Still 25lbs....I did pick up another adjustable one that goes up to 32 lbs.i

    COVID-19 Workout #62 (Oh when will it end....)

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squats

    Left leg:
    73.5's (147 lbs) x 3 x 3
    62..5's (125 lbs) x 8

    Right leg:
    73.5's + 25 lbs vest (172 lbs) x 3 x 3
    62.5's + 25 lbs vest (150 lbs) × 8

    Weighted pullups

    +10 lbs x 5,5 (used two 5 lb ankle weights)

    Dumbbell Romanian deadlifts

    126's (252 lbs) × 5,5,5

    Dumbbell shrugs

    126's x 8,8

    Dumbbell deadlifts

    128.5's (257 lbs) + 20lbs strapped to wrist × 5
    (dont know if the wrist weights make it 20 lbs heavier...)

    Two arm bent over dumbbell rows

    100's x 6,5,5

    Loaded my DB handles with as much as can fit (two 25's, four 10's, two 5's, two 5.5's and four 2.5's) and finished with

    Dumbbell deadlift (again)

    131's (262 lbs) × 5

    The dumbbell deadlifts probably most resemble a deficit trap bar deadlift....maybe I can make it harder by wearing Olympic lifting shoes to give it a bit more of a deficit

    COVID-19 Workout #63

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squats

    Left leg:
    73.5's (147 lbs) × 4,4,4
    62.5's (125 lbs) x 9

    Right leg
    73.5's + 25lbs vest (172 lbs) × 4,4,4
    62.5's + 25lbs vsst (150 lbs) × 9

    Two Arm Dumbbell Clean and Press

    60's x 3 x 3

    Weighted Perfect Pushups

    +81lbs x 6,6,5*

    *reps didnt increase because I went deeper. I bought these pushup handles not to get greater ROM but to position my arm to alleviate shoulder issues. I usually go down until I am in line with handles which would be like hitting the floor without handles.

    Weighted Valslide leg curls

    +5lbs ankle weights per leg x 15,15

    Also scattered DB front squats witb a pair of 71 lbs DB (142 lbs) throughout....2 sets aftsr DB clean and press and 1 set after leg curls. Went ATG with pause. More of a core workout than legs but even cleaning DBs probably has value.

    Got some reinforcements delivered. Four 10lbs plates....now I can do one arm DB rows without using 25 lbs plates and get better ROM. Generic Chinese made stuff from Amazon that i paid too much for but pleasantly surprised they all weighed out to 10lbs. Also got thick bar DB handles and finallly ordered the Rogue 15lbs DB handles. Probably have to wait a couple weeks, hopefully Rogue does a better job packaging these than when I ordered plates from them a few months back.

    COVID-19 Workout #65

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squats

    Left leg:
    73.5's (147 lbs) × 5,5,5

    Right leg
    73.5's + 25lbs vest (172 lbs) × 5,5,5

    Weighted pullups

    +10lbs x 6,6

    Dumbbell Front Squats (ATG with 2 second pause)

    73.5's (147lbs) × 3,3

    Dumbbell Romanian Deadlifts

    126's (252 lbs) × 6,6,6

    Dumbbell shrugs

    126's x 15

    Two arm bent over dumbbell rows

    100's x 6,6,6

    Dumbbell deadlifts

    141's (282 lbs) × 5,5

    biggest plate was 25lbs so kinda like a deficit trap bar dead but DBs are angled in a way so its not completely at my side so maybe a hybrid defifict dead. Once my Rogue DB handles comes, they can be loaded to 146 lbs....if UPS didnt lose my shipment

    DB front squats and deadlifts are more psychologically fulffilling than anything else just to do the movement. Although with front squats, having to clean DBs and holding it in place may be beneficial

    COVID-19 Workout #67

    Weighted chinups

    +35lbs x 5,5,5

    One arm dumbbell rows

    135 x 6,6 per arm (10 lbs plates only)
    75.5 × 6,6 per arm (2 inch thick handles)

    Dumbbell swing (KB type version)

    130 × 6,6

    One arm dumbbell overhead press

    Left arm:
    62.5 x 1*,3,2 (*actually got 2 half reps before getting a full rep on first set)
    55 × 6+1,6

    Right arm:
    70 × 3,2,3
    62.5 × 6

    One arm dumbbell floor press

    60's x 6,6,6 per arm

    Dumbbell suitcase holds with 130lb dumbbell, twice per side

    Played around with real single arm dumbbell swings where you use hip drive to get DB's overhead in one motion....kinda like hybrid swing/snatch. Did 35's,45's,50's,55's for singles to get an idea. One set of 3 reps with 60's per arm and then just tried one rep with 62.5's because it was there. No ab wheel rollouts today.

    COVID-19 Workout #68

    Warmed up with 35 and 65 lbs dumbbell Goblet squats

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squats

    Left leg
    76's (152 lbs) × 4,4,4
    65's (130 lbs) × 8

    Right leg
    76's + 25lb vest (177 lbs) × 4,4,4
    65's + 25lb vest (155 lbs) × 8

    Weighted Pullups

    +10lbs x 7,7

    Dumbbell front squats (ATG with 2 seconds pause)

    78.5's (157 lbs) × 3,3
    81's (162 lbs) × 2

    Plan was to blow these off but decided to do the 78.5 lbs DB's. The clean felt so good compared to Wednesday that after a brief pause to do a chore, told myself do a single with 81's and blow off shrugs. Did a double instead but was sweating a lot and DBs felt like it was sliding off so ended it there. Honestly getting more out of the cleans than the squats

    Dumbbell Romanian deadlifts

    127.5's (255 lbs) x 6,6,6

    Dumbbell deadliffts (25lb plates were largest so really a deficit deadlift)

    146's (292 lbs) × 5,5

    Two arm bent over dumbbell rows (no 25 lb plates)

    101's x 6,6,6

    Notes: Solid workout....as mentioned last week, the front squats and deadlifts are more pyschologically fulfilling than a physical challenge although cleaning the dumbbells for squats and deadlifting from a deficit does make it somewhat more challenging than if I was front squatting 162 lbs or trap bar deadlifting 292 lbs

    Gyms may be opening soon but have to see how comfortable I am with the way they operate. Will go in when it opens in the morning as usual and if its too crowded or social distance isn't practiced, will GTFO and probably file a complaint. But even if gyms are operating safely, only going to squat once or twice a week and do everything else at home. And wll keep doing Bulgarians

    COVID-19 Workout #69 (oh yeah!)

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squats

    Left leg:
    76's (152 lbs) × 5,5,5

    Right leg:
    76's + 25lbs vest (177 lbs) × 5,5
    85's (170 lbs) × 6 (just wanted to see if heavier dumbbells are harder than adding weight via vest although should have done 87.5's but being conservative)

    Two Arm Dumbbell Clean and Press

    62.5's x 3 x 3

    One Arm Thick Dumbbell Press

    Right arm
    55 x 6

    Left arm
    55 x 4

    Does make a bit of difference

    One Arm Dumbbell Floor Press

    Right arm:
    62.5 × 6,6,6

    Left arm
    62.5 x 5,4,6 (go figure)

    Wasn't in a weighted pushup type mood and these are still fun. Speaking of....

    One Arm Dumbbell Swing (old school style)

    65 × 3,3 per arm

    Right arm only: 70 × 1

    COVID-19 Workout #72

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squat

    Left leg:
    78.5's (157 lbs) × 3 × 3
    67.5's (135 lbs) × 6

    Right leg:
    78.5's + 25 lb vest (182 lbs) × 3 × 3
    67.5's + 25 lb vest (160 lbs) × 6

    Two arm dumbbell clean and press

    62.5's x 3,3,3/2 (only right arm was able to lock out 3rd rep)

    Old school dumbbell swings:

    3 attempts per arm with 85 lbs:

    Left arm 2 out 3 successful lift
    Right arm: zero successful lift.
    Then:

    75 x 1,1 per arm

    One arm dumbbell floor press

    Right arm

    Too many annoying distractions today. The gym has a lot of annoying members but you can lock in a bit better

    COVID-19 Workout #74

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squat

    Left leg:
    78.5's (157 lbs) × 4,4,4

    Right leg:
    78.5's + 25lbs vest (182 lbs) × 4,4,4

    First time using a bench as support for my back leg. BIG difference (and realize how dangerous using a stool was)

    Pullups

    BW x 6,6

    Dumbbell Romanian Deadlifts

    130's (260 lbs) × 5,5,5

    Dumbbell shrugs

    130's x 12

    Dumbbell deadlifts (deficit using 25 lbers)

    153's (306 lbs) × 5,5

    The odd weight is that the four 25lbs plates I received last week weigh 24 lbs each. Although if i really want to be exact, two of my other 25 lbs plates weight around 25.5....

    Two arm bent over dumbbell rows

    100's x 7,7,7

    So gym reopens Wednesday, not 100% sure what my plan is. Probably go in just once a week and just do squats and other stuff do at home. So hopefully in and out in less than an hour but gym opens later than before the pandemic so even going in when it opens doesn't guarantee a relatively empty gym

    Dumbbell Bulgarian Split Squats

    Left leg:
    80's (160 lbs) × 3 × 3

    Right leg:
    80's(160lbs) × 5,5

    Felt meh so meh workout. A bit disingenious to call this a COVID-19 Workout since gyms opened this morning so it was a voluntary home workout. But 75 is a nice round number to end with and from now on these are regular home workouts. Not sure When Im going back to the gym

    Friday 9/4/20

    Squats

    Bar x 5
    95 x 5
    135 x 3
    155 x 3
    185 x 3
    205 x 3
    225 x 3
    245 x 3
    265 x 3
    275 x 3

    The mask didn't really affect me but then again, I kept intensity low. But the weight felt good so those Bulgarian Split Squats did help retain some leg strength

    While it felt good to squat again, I don't know if Im going back anytime soon. The gym didn't bother to move equipment around and it was always a bit cramped. There were 6 people in the gym (at least on the floor the free weights are), 5 of them were doing legs (although 2 were a couple working out on the same leg press) and there was no way that one leg press the couple was using was 6 feet away from the squat rack. I moved to a rack further away (which is close to a seated calf machine luckily no one was using and a lifting platform). I'm sure the couple was glad that I moved as well.

    Wednesday 9/16/20

    Rack Day

    Front squats

    171.5 x 3,3,3,3,3,3,3

    All ATG, some with a pause

    Barbell standing overhead press

    114 x 5,5,5

    Weight felt light but also felt weird doing them with a bar again

    Weighted chinups

    +25lbs x 8,8,8

    Ironmind says strict pullups and they mean it. Even the slightest sway felt unstable

    Weighted Valslide leg curls

    +5lbs per leg x 15,15

    Used my newly purchased 5ft Olympic barbell from Hampton and ALight Mobile Training Center from Ironmind. Bar felt great, bit of a learning curve for the training center but overall very happy

    Another Rack Day even though it should be upper body day. Now that I have a barbell, can't neglect heavy dumbbell work

    Front squats

    175 x 3,3,3,3

    ATG with some reps paused. Little discouraged that it didnt feel easier

    Standing barbell press

    119 x 5,5,5

    Bent over barbell rows

    186 x 8,,8,8

    Messed around with the dip and chin bar on the rack. Dips are a no go as it kills my shoulder. Need to get used to the chin up bar

    Back to Bulgarian split squats next workout. Although wouldn't hurt to do barbell stuff exclusively for a few weeks given it was 6 months of mostly dumbbell work
