    531 Periodization Bible by Dave Tate, Cycle 1, Week 2, Day 2

    Sumo Deadlift: 3x62.5 + 3x72.5 + 6x80 + 5x5 FSL
    Lunges (Dumbbells, Stationary, Long step): 5x10x10 (kg)
    Goblet Squat (Wide Stance): 5x10x14 (kg)
    Leg Extension: 5x20x30 (kg), Slow execution
    Hyperextensions: 3x20 Bodyweight

    Sumo deads felt much better today. Watching a ton of videos on proper form, working on mobility on off days and experimenting with stance has helped a lot.

    Also bought a very nice belt, instead of the ones the gym has for everyone to use. Much better stability.

    Rack Pulls: 5x8x70 (kg)
    Pull-Throughs: 5x12x15 (kg)

    Cardio: Treadmill, 20 minutes, 7 km speed, no gradient

    Today was the last day of the previous week of the cycle. Unfortunately, my dad's health deteriorated and things are going to be pretty difficult over the next few months. I'll try to fit in as many workouts as possible as it really helps mentally.

    Sleep was pretty bad in the last few days, including two consecutive all-nighters, however I managed to eat A LOT and rest yesterday, so I'll squeeze the remaining workouts of the cycle and start with a new assistance template next week.

    OHP is either progressing really well or I underestimated my 1 RM at the beginning of the program. Nice workout with a number of PRs.

    Hyperextensions: 3x20 Bodyweight

    Was expecting at least 2-3 more reps on the bench top set and at best I had 1 more. Not worried yet as yesterday's dinner and today's breakfast had less calories than usual, also not so good sleep.

    Last day of the first cycle. Pretty pleased with how things are going gym wise, skipping first deload as weights still feel relatively light. Will continue with a new template (Simplest Strength) starting tomorrow or Wednesday.

    531 Simplest Strength Template, Cycle 1, Week 1, Day 1

    Squat: 5x62.5 (kg) + 5x72.5 (kg) + 8x80 (kg) + 5x72.5 (kg) + 10x62.5 (kg)
    Sumo Deadlift: 10x47.5 (kg) + 10x57.5 (kg) + 10x67.5 (kg)
    Pull Throughs: 5x12x15 (kg)
    Leg Extensions: 5x20x35 (kg) Super slow execution
    Planks: 3x30' left side/front/right side
    Cardio: ~15 minutes, two rounds of intense walking around a football stadium

    Changes I made to the original template:

    Added two decreasing pyramid sets to the main lift, Wendler mentions it on the Beyond book.
    The assistance lift is the main lift of another day, with the decreased pecentages Wendler recommends.
    Manipulated the number of sets/reps on the accessories.


    Squat moving up nicely.

    Constantly working on bench form. Not that it's bad, but I feel I can improve some details.
    Forgot how much I love T-Bars.
    CGBP done on the Smith just for today, all benches were being used.
    Looking to add more "conditioning" work at the end of workouts instead of treadmil.

    Sumo Deadlift: 5x62.5 (kg) + 5x72.5 (kg) + 10x80 (kg) + 5x72.5 (kg) + 15x62.5 (kg)
    Squat: 10x47.5 (kg) + 10x57.5 (kg) + 10x67.5 (kg)
    Horizontal Leg Press: X
    Seated Leg Curls: 5x15x40 (kg) super slow execution
    Planks:3x40' left side/front/right side
    Conditioning/Cardio: Treadmil, 20 minutes, medium intensity

    Today's notes:

    Everything moved very smoothly. However, doing light squat after deads felt harder than doing light deads after squat.
    Looking to replace horizontal leg press, movement feels really uncomfortable. Wish the gym had a 45 degree press or a hack squat machine. Sometimes I look at the equipment some gyms have in other countries and get jealous.
    Joke of the day: Was told BY A TRAINEE to make less noise with my deadlift! Seriously, fk commercial gyms, or most of them.

    Today's notes:

    Pretty bad sleep yesterday but everything moved nicely.
    CGBP much harder when not done on the Smith machine like last week.
    Will squeeze the next few workouts as I'll probably go on vacation next week and don't want to skip anything. Already eating A LOT more so that no recovery issues come up. Sleep is a problem but I'm working on it.
    Will certainly continue with 531, maybe even for the whole next year or so. Still going through the books until I find a template to settle and run 3-4 consecutive cycles.

    Conditioning/Cardio: Treadmil, 25 minutes low intensity

    Today's notes:

    Another very bad night of sleep yesterday, so did some basics and got out. Either way, deads moved really smoothly, I could have got more reps on the AMRAP sets but took it easy.

    Conditioning: Deck of cards workout. Exercises of choice: KB Swings, Heel Touchers, Bodyweight Squat, Crunch to knee, 104 reps each, aprox 15 minutes

    Today's notes:

    Squat didn't feel very good today, so I did not try to push the AMRAP sets. Deads felt light on all sets, probably my best progressing lift along with OHP.
    Tried deck of cards as a conditioning tool, was nice. Need to come up with solid conditioning programming after vacation.

    Last cycle's 70x5 on bench was worrisome, today's 72.5x7 moved smootlhy, very clean reps, so everything is good. Deads moving like thin air.
    Conditioning/cardio was thrown out of the window today.
    Last workout tomorrow before vacation, will again do some basics and call it a day.

    Mini review

    Been back at the gym for the past 12 weeks. For the first seven did random Full-Body stuff to get back on track, next five I ran 2 3-week cycles of 531, with one week being a litte compressed due to personal issues. Bodyweight went from 90.7 kg (~200 lbs) to 95.4 kg (~210 lbs) while on creatine, so I'm guessing I put 2-3 kg, however I'm experiencing noob/detrained gains so my body already looks way better. About training, these were my 1RM when I started 531 and my current ones, according to PR sets, not tested:

    Squat: 100 kg (Tested) ---> 110 kg
    Bench Press: 80 kg (Estimated) ---> 90 kg
    Sumo Deadlift: 100 kg (Estimated) ---> 125.5 kg
    OHP: 45 kg (Tested) ---> 55kg

    I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow and coming back I'll run a training max test and continue with some 531 Template, don't know which one yet.

    To everyone reading, I wish you to have great training sessions.

    531 Training Max Tests

    Bench Press: 5x55 (kg) + 5x62.5 (kg) +5x70 (kg) + 4x77.5 (kg)
    Sumo Deadlift: 5x80 (kg) + 5x90 (kg) + 5x102.5 (kg) + 5x112.5 (kg)
    Cardio: Treadmil, 30 minutes, medium intensity

    Coming back from vacation, I'm at exactly the same bodyweight, probably a result of eating a lot of **** and walking/swiming/hiking like a maniac. Today's test was successful, Squat and OHP to be done. I'm starting a "strength block" Monday, that will last aprox. until December/January, before moving to something more hypertrophy focused.

    Squat: 5x70 (kg) + 5x80 (kg) + 5x90 (kg) + 4x100 (kg)
    OHP: 5x32.5 (kg) + 5x35 (kg) + 5x40 (kg) + 5x45 (kg)

    Today's notes:

    Grindy last two reps on squat. Slept very bad yesterday so this might be a factor, but form also did not feel very good. Not making any changes yet as I'll squat 2x/week with mixed intensities. Will study form a bit and reassess at the end of next cycle.
    OHP moving very nicely, training max test more than successful.

    Today's notes:

    I put Goblet there thinking it's gonna help somehow with the squat, but I don't think that's the case. Will replace with an ab or pulling movement.
    I seriously need to get my sh*t together with cardio. Lifting progresses great so far, but I want to be at least at a decent level of cardiovascular conditioning. Hopefully I'll stop being bored I guess.
