    I don't think you're too heavy, maybe you're too trained for one thing vs. another. That's how I felt when I stopped playing for 10 years, got into lifting (never had before), added 70lbs., and all my legs ever did was squat for explosive movements (low rep and done) or go slllloooowww for hypertrophy. Had I trained more dynamic effort w/weights that may have panned out differently.

    Anyway, at that point I dropped to mid-180s and for a few years through tendinitis injury to just maintain and stay happy. I was more happy to be playing again that lifting was secondary but always there. Eventually got over my injuries, got bitten by the bug again, and was able to add some weight and reach the 200s again. Stayed around there maintaining/leaning out a little bit perhaps, and eventually got back up to the 210s. Over all this time, my legs were doing as much hockey training via skating upward of 4x per week for a few years, and adjusting my leg work in the gym a little. Nothing major, but something to build muscle and hope I get some strength/balance/etc. benefit too. I was traveling weekly and only playing once for half a year when I hit 210s again, so after that was done I cut down again to low 190s. Now I'm at high 190s/200s w/more LBM. This is all on what I would normally consider a half-ass diet too, so if you're really dialed in you can really look amazing getting the best of everything. I've just got too much going on that I found my happy diet medium. Trying to find ways to keep it easy and make it better, which oddly enough seems to be working during this quarantine. I've basically been Q'd for 2 months straight here so I eat less because I have no hockey days.

    You're a big guy, what is your game day nutrition like? I used to go crazy but as I approach 40 with aspirations to retain the body of a 20 year old I've wisened up - LOL. If I'm low on carbs, I feel it quickly. If I have too many, I feel fine, but it doesn't help my physique. I love crushing an entire pizza for a meal and still having multiple other meals though, damn... Anyway, I've come most recently to eat lower carbs throughout the day, some junk snacks if I feel like it, and then a bowl of boring-ass oatmeal pre-game. It's made me feel and play well, so if I can do that and it does well for everything then I'm all for it.

    I'm going to take a cue from you and do some box jumps! I haven't done those in over a decade, but "speed on ice" is all I need to hear. I need more of a jump!
    I wish I could say I was eating less, but I am mostly not. I'm trying to compensate for no hockey w/ long, brisk walks but my weight loss has stagnated. Worse, being home all the time invites boredom binging. I just ate a box of chocolate covered raisins and a bag of chips a few hours ago, ruining my macros for the day.

    Generally speaking I eat 3000-3200 calories a day assuming I'm playing hockey or lifting. If it's both, I eat 3500. If I have two games AND train, I'll eat 4000. Those days are rare, as I generally play Tuesday/Wednesday/Saturday, but occasionally my league games get rescheduled. Since February I have been trying to lose weight so I've dropped my daily intake to 2800 calories, but on days I train and play puck anything goes. When hockey restarts I'm gonna try and stop going so ballistic with my diet on those days. I've dropped from a peak of 235 in January to 217 in early April, but as I've said my quarantine binging has thrown me off, so I'm back up to 221 as of Monday.

    I highly recommend box jumps as a simple and quick workout for that first step. Some days, certainly not most or all, but some day on the ice I feel like I've never been faster. I'm not sure how true that is, except for a year off after high school I've usually played at least once a week. Maybe it's just me, but I feel like the box jumps have been the difference.

    OK, so I don't feel so bad! I usually work at home and am still on the job now, so it's business as usual for me thankfully. I definitely feel the binge snacking though, I'm up late with a quiet house every night too and that's usually the worst. Or when the wife just orders junk and I can't say no because why should I not get a treat too...

    Lifting and hockey in the same day, yeah I'd eat everything in sight too. I did that a couple times and remember having one of the worst games EVER, so going with hockey superstition laws I vowed to not do that anymore. I like the 2-3 games in one night deals. Talk about getting the most out of your calories, plus once you enter a zone you can just go forever - LOL.

    How do you structure the box jump training? Sets, reps, frequency, how often do you increase height attempts vs. stay at a static height, etc. If you think you get benefit from them, I'd believe it for sure. Everything about the idea suggests it couldn't NOT help. Even if it's in my mind, that helps too sometimes

    UPPER - heavy day


    Decline Crunch w/3s peaks: 8, 8
    Each SS w/gironda vacuum @20-30s



    Flat BB Bench: 135x10*, 165x8*, 205x3, 235x1*, 265x1*, 295x1
    * SS w/Pullups x6


    Gironda High Pulley row, 30s rest between each
    125x8, 125x8, 125x8, 125x8


    Hang Snatch Grip High Pulls
    225x3
    245x2, 245x2, 245x1
    Still practicing heavier weight. Not quite to proper height yet.




    Was going to do more for abs, but work beckoned and I lost my flow. Ab work sucks anyway, so oh well.

    Glad to be near 300 on bench again! I'd probably have it if I tried, or didn't have my safety catches RIGHT at my pecs. When I bottom out, it hits the catches and it's not as perfect of a rep as it would be w/a spotter and no safeties. No worries, just noting. The next pin on my rack is too far apart. I want to get a new rack with better spacing, let's see if I can catch one when in stock sometime. I also ordered a pulldown machine which should be delivered in a couple weeks (hopefully).

    I like these Gironda high rows a lot because they really hit the rear delts. And they also replicate the "J" path that I used to do via "J Pulldowns", where on the eccentric you scoop outward/upward to elongate the lats. I trust Vince so I'll do these a lot, and I love that I thought of something very similar.


    My legs are killing me after yesterday's workout. Doing tri-sets with short rest between them is killer! Much more enjoyable than endless grueling sets, too.

    yes i blame my wife for the junk in the house, but not having a place to go all day makes me eat it.

    i do about 6-10 reps of 3 or 4 sets at 30 inches. i get lazy and just bound up and down each rep from the floor to the box, but that's probably not good for the knees. if im feeling smart i grab a smaller box to step down from after each jump.

    i should probably attempt a higher height at some point. honestly it's just a quicker/lighter explosive movement that you could throw in as a variation to more serious lifts.

    Thanks, I'll give that a shot this week! I guess for our purpose, hitting another inch or two doesn't really make a difference as long as we're still exploding. Never heard of a hockey player bragging about their vertical, haha. Plus, less risk for missing/hurting something. It's just as well, my legs are perpetually sore between 2-3x lift sessions and the cardio complex stuff. I have a feeling jumps @ easy heights are going to be brutal after a few reps anyway.

    I really flew tonight, this was all done in under an hour.

    Got a bunch of new gym flooring, a mix of the heavy duty 3/4" rubber that is 100lbs. per mat, and some light foam that is 1/2". Going to be able to fill up most of the gym area with floor protection now! Also got a new plate tree being delivered tomorrow, which isn't much but will be nice to have. My current one has angled pegs so sliding big plates off can be tricky. This new one has straight pegs, plus better spacing so I can put 45s on any peg I want unlike my current one.




    UPPER



    Warmups

    Gironda Dips x6 / pullups x6
    Gironda Dips x6 / pullups x6

    Decline Bench pin press (maybe 2" off, due to my rack)
    w/2 half reps @bottom 225x5 / RP straight reps 225x8
    RP Flat Guillotine Press: 165x8 +25s iso hold @ halfway on last rep
    SS w/High position Slastix Band fly/dip hybrid around heavy band @ 2 minutes w/varying rep tempo



    OHP: 155x3 strict
    Push Press: 205x2 half reps. ****, that sucked. Decline bench was pretty taxing though. Can't expect to hit PRs after that often, and I have been for weeks…



    Ab Circuit / intermission

    Slow start today, taught my son to do box jumps. I didn't use a box since we didn't have enough height, so I let him use it. He did great!

    I felt that 300 was gonna be a fail before I even did it. Held it halfway about 10s for a decent flex, at least. Can't fully expect to jump like 30lbs in 3 weeks after not strength training in 18 months though! Not to mention I'm eating to lose rather than gain, so I'm not even hopped up on calories either.

    CARDIO COMPLEXES


    20-30s between sets:
    A2G Squat/OHP/RDL/Snatch Grip Rows
    65x8,7,6,5

    Front Squat/Jerk from delts/Split Squat each leg
    65x 3 reps each, 4 sets total, no rest between anything



    Low wood choppers 20x20 each
    SS w/Gironda Vacuums 20s,20s RP


    High wood choppers 35x20 each
    SS w/Gironda Vacuums 20s,20s RP


    V-Tuck/serratus DB press w/20s x10,4 RP +15-20s iso on last rep of each
    SS w/Twist Mountain Climbers x20 each leg


    Then I went roller blading with my son



    Even with lowering the weight and removing a couple extra exercises for volume, I hate these cardio complex days! This version is much easier to survive, but they still suck. It's still a hybrid cardio/bonus leg work day, essentially. Also gotta work on low wood choppers, I don't like the feel at all. May just skip em all together. The tuck/press move felt great though.

    Bro split change-up week


    Feeling like my triceps are getting smaller. They've always been one of my best parts, but I've slacked on them for a while since I'm always so worn down by the time I get to them. Biceps too, but they've been responding well. I may remove them from my 3x weekly upper routine and just do high-volume once weekly like I used to. We'll see. Everything else is coming along nicely. I'm leaning out, not losing much weight and thusly assume that I'm retaining a lot of/as much muscle as possible, and my abs are coming out. Serratus and obliques are etching out nicely, my focus on rear delts the past couple months has been paying off for sure (took some pics to compare to last winter and was surprised at the difference). Just when I feel like cutting totally sucks, I take a step back and see the big picture and thankfully save myself from giving up. I'm far from 100% what I "could do", but I'm trying not to kill myself mentally. Back in the day, sure, but this is bad enough. I'm getting used to a lot fewer calories & carbs, although I bet they'd help my workouts a lot! Either way, I'm getting it done and not suffering. If I have some junky food I average the cals/macros out over the day and try not to worry. As long as the progress continues I can deal w/not being at my absolute best.

    This volume thing is killing me. Can't tell if it's being conditioned to be done after a few sets or it's just my lack of calories. Or maybe I'm going too hard on everything even when I don't intend it. Oh well, if I don't give my triceps their own day after this I'll at least focus on the ol' long head more.

    ABS / CALVES


    Legs are still kinda sore from this weekend, so I’ll push them back another day and do all the small lagging stuff today.



    Single leg calf raise off a step w/heavy band
    10 each leg x2 sets

    Frog Crunch, extra hard contractions (trying to get my form better to make a difference here)
    20, 15, 15, 15



    Heavy Band calf raise off a step / heel to floor, 20s between sets
    +100x10, +100x10, +100x8 +100x6

    Seated calf raise
    90x15, 115x12



    Seated Cable Crunch +45x10
    SS w/Standing Cable Crunch +45x15
    SS w/Swiss Ball Crunch x12

    Seated Cable Crunch +45x10
    SS w/Kneeling Cable Crunch +45x12
    SS w/Swiss Ball Crunch x10

    Seated Cable Crunch +45x10
    SS w/Standing Cable Crunch +45x12
    SS w/Swiss Ball Crunch x10



    Torn on proper form and path for the Swiss ball crunch. Trying to make them hit my abs as much as possible. Anybody reading and have preferences? I'm just trying to contract as hard as I can because everything I've been doing in the past, by this point, should have given me some decent abs and I'm still fighting for 'em!


    Will do more calf work tomorrow w/legs!

    I think my abs are coming out a bit. My pecs look awesome with a pump lately. I think the attention to "shaping", such as it is, is really helping. Not that I believe I'm only working a portion of a muscle, but I'm definitely putting emphasis there and seeing results (or I'm just magic, which is good too).

    The past 2 chest routines have felt AWESOME. I'm trying harder and harder every session to really get my pecs firing so hard that they're sore after minimal work. The dips here were a nice burner, the pullovers were to get them stretched a bit and hit the top (plus a hopeful beating for the serratus), and my beloved band fly/dip thingies felt amazing.


    UPPER #2

    Warmups
    DB Fly/Press SS w/Inverted Rows
    60x8 / x10 - 2 sets



    Gironda Dips, 33" wide for the first time, 20s between sets, alternating norma/reverse grip

    SS w/High Slastix Band fly/dip hybrid around heavy band & rack @ 60sec


    Back tri-set - BB Rows / Pullups 2s mid-rep iso & negative / Band Pulls 5s peaks
    245x5 / 5 / 5
    RP x4 / 5 / 5
    RP 225x6 / 4 / 8
    Rows lighter/slower than usual. Maybe stick with 225.


    Snatch Grip High Pulls, 30s between sets
    195x4, 195x4, 195x4, 195x6
    +5lbs
    -1 set of 3
    +6 reps total

    Started trying to get my calves into it more. The first time I did the barbell almost went flying out of my hands from the momentum. That's a good sign that I nailed it!

    SS w/Incline Rotation Side Delt whatever this is https://youtu.be/1KFgz0rGflc?list=WL&t=175
    20s x8 (meh)

    UPPER / LOWER


    Warmups, all lightly by feel, just a giant circuit:
    Dips 5 / Pullups 6 / Skater Squats 4,4/ DB RDL 30x8 / Single-leg DB Calf Raise 30x8 / Serratus DB press crunch 30x6
    x2 sets



    Big Stuff cluster sets (like EMOM but quicker)
    Decline BB Bench / DB Rows / Gironda Sissy / Goblet Squat
    205x5 / 90x6 / +30x4 / +30x6 / 70x5
    30s rest / 205x5 / 90x5 / +30x6 / 70x5
    30s rest / 205x5 / 90x5 / +30x5 / 70x5
    40s rest / 205x5 / 90x4 / +30x6 / 70x5

    That was tiring as ****. Great full body/cardio combo! I didn't push anything too far, and the rep form and speed should do the job.




    Calf Raise off a step 2up/1down
    +25x4,4,3,3,2,2 each leg, alternating no rest
    +iso hold x30+ seconds


    Slight Incline DB Press: 70x15,8 RP
    SS w/Slastix band/heavy band fly @60s


    Pull--ups 10,10


    Single-leg Squat (like Bulgarian w/foot planted)
    95x5,4,3,2,1 each leg alternating no rest


    Was gonna do the Ab trisets but my son came down and I got sidetracked. Oh well, the warmup and secondary work will have to do!
