    Today Max Deadlift Day

    So I decided to end Starting Strength as I've gotten stronger than I was when I stopped lifting, which means I'm getting really sore with this program-unreasonably so.

    I read Practical Programming, where Rippetoe explains that when a lifter comes back after time off, he or she can use a beginners program to regain lost strength, and they will regain it faster then they had the first time, but the neural adaptation will also come back quickly, which means the lifter is recruiting muscles better than a true novice, which means you get sore as ****

    Deadlifts
    8x135lbs
    3x185lbs
    1x225lbs
    1x275lbs
    1x335lbs New PR! Hell Yeah.

    After that, I did form practice with front squats. 45lbs, 65lbs, 85lbs, 95lbs, 105lbs. I kind of want to use front squats as an assistance exercise for Candito upper/lower, but I don't know if I can do a 3x8-12 with a weight that's heavy enough to actually do anything for my legs.

    Dang That's amazing! Great job


    The "coming back" adaptation is great. I was a gymnast and lifter for a long, long time, after a couple of years of injury and rehab, my lifts have gone from untrained to nearly intermediate (just using a strength chart as a guide) in a matter of weeks. It's like riding a bike, your muscles don't forget


    Keep up the work on front squats, you'll only improve and one day they'll be useful

    I definitely want to keep front squatting, but I think I'll practice them at the end of each leg day and wait to use them as an assistance exercise until the second cycle.

    Today, I practiced lifts in Candito that I hadn't done before. Spoto press and pause squats. I was also testing out exercises to see what assistance exercises I want to use.

    I tried out the GHR, but I couldn't do it. Don't know if my hamstrings are too weak or if they're too fatigued from deadlifting yesterday. Will likely do a power wheel leg curl instead.

    I tried doing russian twists on the decline bench, but my calf cramped too much to actually try them. Will likely do suitcase deadlifts instead.

    T-Bar row went okay? I'm not sure if I should do that or the dumbbell row. Dumbbell row easier to set up, but T-Bar row will work both sides at once.

    Ab wheel went fine. I went easy, so I wouldn't kill my abs before max bench tomorrow. Will do that.

    So far, my plan looks like this

    Monday
    Squats 3x6
    Deadlift 2x6
    Walking Lunge 3x8-12
    Power Wheel Leg Curl 3x8-12
    Ab wheel 3x8-12

    Wednesday
    Bench 3x6
    Dumbbell Row 3x6
    Shoulder Press 1x6
    Lat Pulldown 1x6
    Facepull 3x8-12
    Curls 3x8-12

    Friday
    Pause Squat 6x4
    Pause Deadlift 3x4
    Step Ups 3x8-12
    Hip Thrusts 3x8-12
    Suitcase Deadlift 3x8-12

    Saturday
    Spoto Press 6x4
    Dumbbell Row 6x4
    Press 1x10
    Lat Pulldown 1x10
    Rear Delt Fly 3x8-12
    Overhead tricep extension 3x8-12

    Max Testing Bench

    Warmup 8x45, 3x65, 1x85, 1x95

    First Test 135- easy

    Second Test 145- difficult but I felt I had more

    Third Test 150- failed- couldn't lock it out. I think my setup was bad because my left foot came up.

    Good news tied my old PR- wasn't sure if I made it. Bad news, I couldn't beat my old PR. Guess I should have brought my 1.25 plates and tried 147.5

    Max Squat Day

    I went at noon and the gym was practicaly deserted.

    Did a light jog to warm up, and then 8x45lbs, 3x95lbs, 2x135lbs, 1x185lbs, 1x225lbs and then went for my first PR attempt.

    I nailed 300lbs then I waited 10 minutes before trying 315. It ended up being a partial; I couldn't get to depth, but I think I'll have it before November.

    I decided to set goals for all of my lifts. I want to hit a 2 plate bench by May. I don't know when I should set my 400lb deadlift goal. Before Christmas? Before Thankgsiving?

    First Day of Candito

    Squats 3x6x225lbs, beltless

    Deadlift 2x6x250- mixed grip

    Walking Lunge 3x8x50lbs

    Seated Leg Curl 3x12x70lbs

    Standing Cable Crunch 4x15x34lbs

    I didn't realize how hard this first workout would be. My quads were feeling the squats more than usual. Apparently adding 1 rep made a lot of difference. I took off some weight, but I also ditched the belt and am likely going deeper on the squats.

    Deadlift- I tried to use straps, but I couldn't figure them out and wasted a lot of time. Will try to practice on an off day.

    Walking Lunge- I wanted to use the 20lb dumbbells but someone was using them to do this stupid RDL/uppercut combo with a rounded back.

    Leg Curl- took more time than it should have to adjust the machine properly

    Standing Cable Crunch- I was too tired to go all out with this. It's just a supplemental exercise anyway.

    Breakfast: Protein Shake + Hazed and Confused Ice cream, turkey and avocado on whole wheat potato bread- cals 501

    My legs were sore as crap from yesterday. I also had this glute pump that went on for several hours- strange.

    I wanted to get some easy conditioning work in.

    10 minutes on spin bike
    8 sled pushes, 140lbs total and 25 yards each
    2x8 depth jumps
    foam roll quads/hams
    static stretching quads/hams

    My legs feel a lot better now. Taking it easy until upper body day tomorrow.

    Candito Upper 1

    Bench 3x6x110lbs
    One Arm Dumbbell Row 3x6x40lbs
    Military Press 1x6x70lbs
    Lat Pulldown 1x6x90lbs
    Face Pulls 3x12x34lbs
    EZ Curls 3x12x35lbs

    I tried the newer benches/equipment in the gym since the section was basically empty. As it turns out, I prefer the old beat up benches/plates.

    The upper workout was shorter than the lower one even with more exercises. Maybe I should move abs to upper body days to better balance time.

    I got called strong at the day (awesome) and another lifter told me that I was in beast mode.

    Breakfast: Whey shake w/ ice cream and homemade nutella.

    Going to Costco today (for real)

    Candito Lower 2

    Paused Squats 6x4x155lbs
    Paused Deadlifts 3x4x165lbs
    Step Ups 3x8x40lbs
    Hip Thrusts 3x10x145lbs

    I skipped the ab work because I'm out of time. I think I'll do abs on upper days to save time.

    I love paused squats. I could really feel my quads working hard. The paused deadlifts weren't as exciting, but I think they're a good way of training grip strength.

    I practiced with straps during my warmup set. They didn't feel like they were doing that much; I guess because it was with a weight I could handle anyway. I'm going to try to use them on Monday instead of mixed for my heavier deadlifts.

    I had a hard time with the step ups. I haven't done them in a long time. I didn't feel my quads working too hard. I just felt out of breath.

    The hip thrusts went pretty well.

    Candito Upper 2

    Spoto Press 6x4x85lbs
    Paused Dumbbell Row 6x4x40lbs
    OHP 10x65lbs
    Lat Pulldown 10x90
    Rear delt flies 3x8x7.5
    overhead tricep pushdown 3x10x30lbs- rest pause
    Pallof Press 3x10x30lbsxside

    Other
    Ab wheel 10 reps
    kettlebell swing 5x97lbs

    Not sure if I should have done more weight with the spoto press. First 4 sets were easy. Only felt kind of hard during the last two sets
    The dumbbell row was interesting. My elbow didn't like it at first, but then it was fine.

    I barely got through the shoulder press. Apparently, I was supposed to do 60lbs, and I forgot. I think I'll stay with that weight next week.

    Lat pulldown was easy. Will go to 100 next week..

    Rear delt flies I had never done before. Not sure if I really need them or if I should do facepulls on two days. I'll give them 3 more weeks and then decide.

    Rest pause with triceps burns way more than with biceps.

    Pallof Presses were fine.

    Week 2- Candito Lower 1

    Squats 3x6x230lbs.
    Deadlift 2x6x250lbs
    Walking Lunges 3x10x50lbs
    Leg Curl 3x12x75lbs/Standing Ab Crunch 3x12x30lbs

    For some reason, my first squat set felt the worst, my second one felt better and my third one was the best. My warmup was pretty normal, not sure what went wrong there.

    Do I really need to care about mixed grip and bicep tears? I've been trying to use straps, but I can't use them well enough to give me any benefits. I just fuddle around with them for 10 minutes, give up after failing to pick up the bar, and then go back to mixed grip anyway. Unless a bicep tear is more common than any other injury I might get lifting, I think I'll just punt on the straps.

    My quads are burning up from these lunges. I'm weird in that I like lifts that make me struggle a bit. I figure it's addressing a weak point and I should do them more.

    Somehow, I just realized my thighs are too big for the leg curl setting I have been using. I loosened the pad that holds your legs down and it's way better.

    Straps don't feel right to me either. It's like a looser feeling grip? If I ever get up to needing grip assistance again, I'd try to hook type grips.

    I may get versa grips later on, but for now, I'll just keep it mixed.

    Conditioning Day
    5 rounds- trap bar deadlift and farmers walk 95lbs, 5 depth jumps, 10 kettlebell swings 32kg
    mobility drills, shoulders and ankles,
    stretching, foam rolled lower back
    exercise bike 5 minute cooldown

    I felt sluggish when I first got to the gym, but I eventually got it together.
    I'm down 1lb from last week- now 220.7
    I want to fix my bike today and start riding it around.

    Candito Upper 1

    Bench 3x6x112.5
    Dumbbell row 3x6x45lbs
    Press 1x6x72.5; 2x5x65
    Lat pulldown 3x6x100lbs
    EZ curls 2x12x37.5; 1x8x37.5; 1x4x37.5
    Face pull 3x12x36lbs
    Standing Cable Crunch 3x12x40lbs

    I could barely make it through my bench today. I don't know why; I hit a heavier weight for a 3x5 two weeks ago.
    Dumbbell row was easy, but I don't know if I can make 50lbs next week with the fat dumbbells. I like the fat dumbbells, so I'm working on my grip strength. I'll either do more reps next week or with the thinner dumbbell.

    The press went up better than the bench, so maybe it was just a bad bench day. I added 2 more sets to get more volume for my triceps. I think they're my weak point in the bench. Sometimes I get a weight half way up and get stuck.

    The curls- I should have done a 3x8 instead, but the first set wasn't so hard, so I tried for a 3x12 rest pause. Clearly, that didn't work out so well. I'll probably try the same weight, but with a 3x9, and add a rep reach week. This way, I'm only adding weight every 5 weeks- which should be fine.

    My stupid left knee is stiff. I'm not sure if it's from jumping yesterday or when I kind of crashed it into the turf when I went to do my hip flexor stretches. I might skip tomorrow's conditioning day, so my knee is 100% for Friday- game time decision tomorrow.

    Candito Lower 2

    Paused Squat 6x4x165
    Paused Deadlift 3x4x175
    Step ups 3x12x40
    Hip Thrusts 1x12x155; 2x12x135

    My knee was like 95%. It didn't hurt during the squats, but I definitely felt something. No more sprinting/jumping until it's 100%, and I may wait until I'm under 200lbs before I start jumping again. I think it was from lack of a proper warmup, but losing weight can't hurt.

    Paused deadlifts tear up my hands. The good thing is I think they'll help with my grip strength a lot, since I do them all double overhand, but still, I went from like two callouses to five from today.

    Step ups- my left knee felt fine during them, and my left leg might have done better than the right one.

    I couldn't remember what I did for the hip thrusts last week. I should have tried 3x12x145 instead of 3x12x155. The first set went up fine, but I felt like my hamstrings were too involved, so I lowered the weight, so I could pause at the top. I kind of like having a heavier first set; I might keep that for next week.

    Upper 2- the end of week 2

    Spoto Press 6x4x95lbs
    Dumbbell Row w/ pause 4x6x45lbs
    Overhead Press 1x10x67.5, 2x5x55
    Lat Pulldown 3x10x100lbs
    Overhead Tricep Extension 3x12x30lbs
    Rear Delt Fly 3x12x7.5
    Pallof Press 1x12x30lbs

    The spoto press went up pretty well as did the dumbbell row.
    The overhead press was really hard. I'm not sure if I locked out my left arm on the last rep.
    The lat pulldown was fine for the first two sets. The last set needed a little body English.
    The overhead tricep extension went a lot better without the rest pause.
    What I thought was a rear delt fly was a bent over lateral raise. I think I'll start using the cable machine to do a rear delt fly instead.
    I was gassed and decided to punt on the Pallof Presses after the first set. It's optional anyway.

    I made a frittata for breakfast, delicious.

    Week 3: Lower 1

    Squat 3x6x235
    Deadlift 2x6x255
    Lunges 3x10x50lbs
    Leg curls 3x12x80lbs

    The squats were hard, but I got through it. I'm working on a buttwink issue, and I think I'm GMing my squats towards the end.

    My left knee didn't love the lunges, but I got through it fine.

    I may take the lunges out for the next 4 week cycle and go to single leg legpress

    Week 3: Upper 1

    Bench 3x6x115lbs
    Dumbbell Row 3x10x50lbs
    Overhead Press 1x6x75lbs; 2x5x65lbs
    Lat Pulldown 1x10x110lbs; 1x9x110lbs; 1x10x100lbs
    Face Pulls 3x10x39lbs
    Bicep Curls 3x9x37.5

    Optional
    Standing Cable Crunch 1x10x39lbs; 2x10x44.5lbs
    Kettlebell swings 1x10x61lbs

    I had a pretty solid session.

    The bench went up better than it had last week. I think I bench better after I eat.

    The rows were easy, so I did a 3x10 instead of a 3x6, with extra weight. The gym has two dumbbell sets- one with fat handles and one with thin handles. I think I'm going to use the thinner handles on Wednesdays and the fatter ones on Saturdays, so I'm using maximum weight for my back and working on my grip strength.

    When I got to the lat pulldown, this pt client was lollygagging around- standing in front of the machine talking, chatting away with his trainer before each set. I decided to superset the pulldown with the face pulls to save time/frustration, but that caused me to miss a rep. I ended up doing all of my curls before doing my third set because the guy was so slow.

    The crunches were pretty easy and the kettlebell swings were because I had extra time.

    I should do more stretching, mobility, soft tissue work.

    After reading this article: https://www.t-nation.com/training/st...-better-method

    I decided to try eccentric stretching, basically you do slow negatives with a weight you can control to stretch tight muscles.

    Today, I did 8 rdls with 2 15lb dumbbells, 5 bent over rows, since I don't have a cable machine in the house, and 5 shoulder presses. I tried doing floor press negatives, but my dog kept trying to lick me in the face.

    Week 3: Lower 2

    Paused Squat 6x4x175
    Paused Deadlift 3x4x185
    Step ups 3x12x40lbs
    Hip Thrusts 3x12x145lbs

    I still have the tweak in my left knee. Will probably get an ace bandage over the weekend and see if that helps.

    My grip almost failed today. I've been trying to do all of the paused deadlifts double overhand, but I don't know how long I'll be able to do that. I'll either have to slow the weight progression, currently 10lbs/week or start using mixed girp.

    Step ups actually are easier on my left knee than the right. I think the negative of a step up is what they recommend for people with jumpers knee, so I should probably do step ups every day I'm at the gym.

    The hip thrusts man did that burn.

    Week 3: Upper 2

    Spoto Press 6x4x100lbs
    Dumbbell Row 6x4x45lbs
    Military Press 1x10x67.5
    Lat Pulldown 1x10x110; 1x10x100
    Rear Delt Fly 3x12x8.5lbs
    Overhead Tricep Extension 3x12x33lbs
    Pallof Press 2x12x30lbs

    There were a few weird guys at my gym today. One kept deadlifting in front of the squat rack even though there were 3 empty bumper plate stations he could have used. He says he's a competitive lifter, but ... he sounded like he was all talk some lift.

    This other guy didn't seem to understand how to get the barbell out of the holder, so he just stole one from another rack, so his squat rack had two barbells and the one next to him had none.

    I was lifting with my sister again. I love her, but I can't stand when she joins my workouts. She asks me 50 million questions, tries to talk to me while I'm lifting, and it adds like 20 minutes to my workout and I get less work done. I know this is like sibling bonding or something, but just let me lift!

    She'll probably join me on Monday before she goes home. Maybe I should make up a circuit for her to do.

    Week 4: Lower 1

    This workout was ugly but I got it done

    Squat 3x6x240lbs
    Deadlift 1x2x250; 1x4x235; 1x6x245
    Walking Lunges 3x8x50lbs
    Leg Curls 3x8x85

    I tried to get through the squats beltless, but it wasn't happening, so I used a belt for the second/third set.
    I tried to do 260 for the deadlifts, but my dumb ass didn't load the bar evenly- I forgot the 10lb plate on one side, so the weight was uneven. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't lift it until I was done with the set and sat down and saw the bar.

    I'll just start next week with 250 and work my way up again- fml
    I decided to do the minimum for the optional exercises. It was a bad workout. I have a lot of **** going on. I just wanted to make sure that I worked out.

    Thanks. I get so mad when I miss reps that I tend to forget what I actually accomplished; Rome wasn't built in a day. My goals can't be instantaneous. I am eager for Friday's leg day. It's time to push forward.

    Week 4: Upper 1

    Bench Press 3x6x117.5
    Dumbbell Row 3x6x50- fat dumbbell
    Overhead Press 1x2x77.5/ Push Press 1x4x77.5; 2x5x65
    Lat Pulldown 1x6x120; 1x8x105; 1x8x100
    Face Pulls 3x12x39/Standing Cable Crunch 3x12x39
    Curls 3x10x37.5

    The bench and the row both went well.

    I decided to switch to push press when I couldn't do any more overhead presses. I'll keep the same weight until I can do a straight set of the 77.5 and then I'll try the 80.

    I started too heavy on the lat pulldown. I forgot about the half weight and should have done 115. I'll probably do 110 on Saturday and try 115 next Wednesday.

    My new supplements came in the mail today. Right now, I'm using creatine, and C3g complex. I'm adding forskolin, 7-keto, and 5HTP. The weight loss has been fairly steady, but I'm hoping to accelerate it with the right supplements. I'm sensitive to caffeine, so I got the supplements I wanted individually instead of getting a fat burner, most all the good ones have caffeine.

    Push presses are great for getting OHP up, you can get a solid eccentric out of them. Hope it works well for you!
