Hope that stays out of anyones sig line. :embarassed:
Nothing like watching your face turn purple in the mirror. Fun stuff, I hate squats.
Way to go though, you're kicking some ass.
"Bad ass on my knees"
That's just begging for two more lines.
Bad ass on my knees
I am the creep with the creaks
Pink underwear lives
Fridays quickie assistance
Weighted Pullups - 25 x 4, 6, 4, 7, 4
Ab Wheel - 9, 9, 8
Band Pull aparts - 3x20
On pullups I alternate overhand grip, then underhand grip.
Thats why the reps are all over the place.
1st week of new deadlift cycle.
Deads - 350x5x3
High Box Squats - 305x3x5
Inverted Rows - 4x12 feet elevated
EZ bar curls - 90x4x10
Still have a cold, but lifting went well. Good bar speed on deads.
I'm really liking inverted rows. Its very hard to cheat like other rows. Curls suck, I got a pump and it was quite annoying.
I'm glad I'm not the only person that thinks it sucks to get a pump.
2nd week of bench cycle.
Flat - 235x5x3
5 board - 270x4, 290x3, 310x0
Side laterals - 15x4x15
face Pulls - 50x3x18
DB Skulls 35x18
Felt off today for sure. 5 board went terrible. Got stuffed with 310, and recently was getting 305x3.
My upper back is real sore from deads. When I go light it gets more sore then when I go heavy. Must kinda shrug the weight since its not heavy enough.
May have something to do with the bad bench day. Erased from memory.
Squats - 235x5, 265x3, 305x3
Standing calves - 270x4x18
Low Box Squats - 215x3x5
Didn't feel like killing myself today. Kinda tired.
You're doing 5/3/1 squat cycles? I thought you didn't get along well with 5/3/1?
I'm with you fellas.
Having my arms engorge to the point that it's hard to finish the workout is not fun.
I said engorge.
You are correct sir.
But I can't figure out which squat program to do. So I'm going to give it another shot. I do like the program, it just dosen't seem to work long for me.
I like the low volume, since I don't enjoy squats.
I was doing 5x5 and got decent results. But it was torture. May go back to it eventually.
Pullups - BWx 8, 8, 8, 8, 8
Ab wheel - 9, 9, 9
Band Pullaparts - 3x20
Pullups felt good, I did them weighted last week, and this week back to BW but got an extra rep on all 5 sets.
Way neat. Atta boy.
Double plus good.
(have you read 1984 by George Orwell?)
2nd week of deads cycle
Sumo - 375x4x3
Conv - 335x3 (farting around)
High Box Squats - 315x3x5
DB rows - 75x4x10
Ez bar curls - 90x4x10
All felt good.
Conventional pulls felt better. Still getting a feel for them. It does appear easier to get the bar off the floor that way. Should've gone for more reps, but I was just goofing around.
I'm not very good at 1 arm DB rows. Haven't done them literally in years.
3rd week of bench cycle
Flat - 250x4x3 (4 sets of 3)
Narrow grip - 190x7, 210x5, 230x3 paused
Side laterals - 18x4x15
Face Pulls - 50x3x18
DB Skulls - 35x19
Felt kinda heavy today, but I got all prescribed reps on flat bench, so thats good.
Highlight was getting 19 reps on skulls. :embarassed:
I'm beginning to wonder if I should take a day off between deads and benching. I feel spent lately.
