    Felt MUCH better on them today versus last week. If I can remember to get set up right and spread the floor they are pretty nice. Once it gets just a bit off the floor lockout seems like a breeze so far.

  5. Week 2 MyoSynergy Impressions:



    -DOMS still seem elevated over normal levels. It isn't anything horrific this week, but definitely above baseline for the amounts this level of volume usually gives me.
    -Endurance seems to be pretty high. Most noticeably on ability to "repeat" similar effort over multiple sets. I had quite a few load drop sets (5% off top weight of the day) this week and usually at this level I have to drop a second time to get the required volume, but this week I only had to do that on a couple exercises.
    -Noted endurance boost on GPP/Conditioning day again. Upped the weight and nearly matched the volume and times.
    -Feeling nice and "full" in my muscle-bellies. Solid pumps and improved vascularity.
    -Weights felt "lighter" this week, but still no major PRs.

    Graph looks a little funny so I'll spare you all that this week. Overall though the recovery looks more "constant" as opposed to the peaks and valleys I see a lot. Interested to see what it looks like following next week.

    Late but in to see how myosynergy treats you. I picked up enough to do an 8 week run in a few weeks, how long are you planning to run it for? Sorry if I missed you stating that.

    I have ~4 weeks worth to log. After this week (week 3) I will determine if I will pick up more. I am liking it so far and if I decide to pick up more I want to run it all the way through my next contest in July.



    Week 3 Day 1- May 12:


    Squat w/Belt Work up to x4 @9 1 Down Set
    2ct Pause Bench Work up to x4 @9 1 Down Set

    TRAC again wanted more volume...something has to give this is getting rough.


    Squats w/Belt*:
    Warm Up- Bar x 10, 60kg x 5, 110kg x 5, 135kg x 5
    155kg x 4 @7
    165kg x 4 @8
    175kg x 4 @9
    Drop
    165kg x 4 x3 @8.5, 8, 8

    A little unusual. I felt strong today (up ~5kg, 10lbs from last week) and then my final sets during the load drop seemed to keep getting easier.

    *Was pissed I couldn't find my belt. I believe I left it in Maryland....so I had to use another belt today, which was smaller and didn't fit well. Threw me off a bit. I am heading to Maryland tonight so I better find my belt or I am about to be screwed.

    2ct Pause Press:
    Warm Up: Bar x 10, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 5, 75kg x 4
    85kg x 4 @7
    90kg x 4 @8
    95kg x 4 @9
    Drop
    90kg x 4 x 3 @8, 8.5, 9

    Felt strong on these. Up a whole rep from two weeks ago at same weight.

    Basement was beyond hot today........sweat everywhere and delirium.

    I also hiked both Saturday and Sunday...surprised my legs weren't too beat up.

    Idk just some random hiking through wilderness.

    Sunday's hike was longer and on some trails near some rivers because my mom wanted to hike for Mother's Day......

    Ahhhh DOMS are strong today...just took my MyoSynergy and will be hitting up some deadlifts a little later.

  13. Week 3 Day 2- May 13:


    Deadlift w/Belt Work up to x4 @9 1 Down Set
    Bench Touch and Go Work up to x6 @10 1 Down Set
    Front Squat Work up to x 5 @9 1 Down Set

    TRAC again wanted 2 extra sets. I didn't sleep well, but it didn't seem to alter my scores for the day.

    Deadlift w/Belt:
    Warm Up- 60kg x 5, 110kg x 5, 140kg x 4
    165kg x 4 @7
    175kg x 4 @8
    187.5kg x 4 @9
    Drop
    177.5kg x 4 @9
    167.5kg x 4 x 2 @8, 9
    Grip Work @ 135kg

    187.5kg(412.5lbs) x 4 was a PR. I'd been continually sitting at 185kg x 4 for awhile so that is a nice breakthrough. I may have even had more, but my gym was grueling hot and my hands were sweating so even with a lot of chalk grip was a little off (which made my grip work at the end of each set and additional work very rough).

    Bench Touch and Go:
    Warm Up: Bar x 10, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 6,
    85kg x 6 @7.5
    90kg x 6 @8.5
    95kg x 6 @9.5
    Drop
    90kg x 5 @10**
    90kg x 6 x 2 @9, 10

    **Ok the first one was a total mind-crap. I guess the heat got to me, but I didn't take the weight off one side so I did the whole set offset. It felt weird, but I though I was just fatigued. The side with the extra weight was the one that died out on the 5th rep. Took weight off that side and it was better. Other than that fluke I felt solid here today.

    Front Squat:
    60kg x 5
    80kg x 5 @7
    90kg x 5 @8
    100kg x 5 @8.5
    Drop
    95kg x 5 @9
    90kg x 5 x 2 @8, 9

    Upper back was fried and was the fatigue point today. Legs didn't feel too bad.

    I didn't sleep well, gym was insanely hot, and I had a ton of volume. The PR was definitely nice and weights were up everywhere else as well, even if I felt like death by the end of the lift.

    Also side note that I hit my usual GPP/Back/Core work today. I added ~10lbs to my rows since two weeks ago and hit the same amount of reps in my 10-minute work window (which the weight previously was already a PR). Endurance is up quite a bit and I have some serious DOMS from yesterday's workout (whole back is toast).

  14. Week 3 Day 3- May 15:

    Competition Bench Work up to x4 @9 1 Down Sets
    2ct Pause Squat Work up to x4 @9 1 Down Sets
    Close Grip Incline Press Work up to x5 @9 1 Down Sets

    TRAC finally showing some signs of fatigue so I am back to only the prescribed 1 down set for the week.

    Comp Bench:
    Warm Up- Bar x 10, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 5, 80kg x 4
    90kg x 4 @7
    95kg x 4 @8
    97.5kg x 4 @9.5
    Drop
    92.5kg x 4 @9

    My chest is sore (from idk what??) and I did feel a little fatigued on these today. Meh overshot a bit.

    2ct Pause Squats:
    Warm Up: Bar x 10, 60kg x 5, 100kg x 5, 125kg x 4
    135kg x 4 @7
    145kg x 4 @8
    152.5kg x 4 @8.5
    Drop
    142.5kg x 4 @9

    Pretty solid PR here. I was gonna go for 155kg (should have), but I started to get to psyched up about it so I just went with 152.5 and killed it pretty easily. That is a whole rep and more weight than last time I did these.



    Close Grip Incline Press:
    Warm Up: 40 x 10
    60kg x 5 @7
    67.5kg x 5 @8
    75kg x 5 @8.5
    Drop
    70kg x 5 @8.5

    Small PR here. I have felt strong on these the last two times I have done them. Hopefully this extra work here will translate to my competition bench soon.

    Overall feeling pretty solid. I am leaning out, getting stronger, and have been recovering very well so far. I have purposely not pushed kcals up to hard to ride this recomposition effect. Still eating quite a bit though.

  15. Week 3 Day 4- May 16:


    Sumo Deadlift Work up to x4 @9 1 Down Set
    3ct Pause Bench Work up to x4 @9 1 Down Set
    2" Deficit SLDL Work up to x5 @9 1 Down Set

    Sumo Deadlift:
    Warm Up- 60kg x 5, 100kg x 5, 125kg x 4
    145kg x 4 @7
    160kg x 4 @8
    175kg x 4 @9.5
    Drop
    160kg x 4 @9

    Meh. I just don't feel right with the set up on these. It might be time to scratch these and go back to fully concentrating on conventional. I just feel out of position getting set up. Blahh

    3ct Pause Bench:
    Warm Up: Bar x 15, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 5, 75kg x 4
    85kg x 4 @7
    90kg x 4 @8
    95kg x 4 @10
    Drop
    85kg x 4 @8

    Got overzealous here. Should have done a smaller jump. Due to yesterday's PR on pause squats being easy I thought I shouldn't underestimate myself. Lesson here...squats are easier than benches for me so I shouldn't have gotten greedy.

    2" Deficit SLDL:
    Warm Up: 100kg x 5
    125kg x 5 @7
    135kg x 5 @8
    145kg x 5 @9
    Drop
    135kg x 5 @8

    Overall a pretty defeating workout. Sumo annoyed me, overshot my bench, and just felt a little blah after it was all said and done. I also sacrificed my beard today so the powerlifting gods may be about to smite me.

    Although it could just be the lack of beard strength in your case!

    Cut the beard after the workout.

    Ya I mean it was blah, but strength was up...I just hate overshooting the plan.

    You've been killing with the added volume that TRACS suggested. One "off" day isn't going to kill you, especially with you hitting PRs.

    Ya it finally backed off these last two days. I was surprised it just had me hold it to normal today, but probably good considering how it went.

    No real issues I just can feel the PRs coming and got a lil greedy on the press. I should note that with how things have gone I am planning to extend this log through my contest. I just need to get my hands on more MyoSynergy.

  21. Got this week's training and have chances on Monday and Friday to redeem my 3ct Bench again.

    Gonna be a rough week though...high stress, tempo squats, lots of bench pauses, pause deadlifts, and I am 8 weeks out from my next competition.

  22. I need to write the Week 3 impressions...I'll hopefully get to that tonight or tomorrow.

    Week 4 Day 1- May 19:


    Squat w/Belt Work up to x3 @9 2 Down Set
    3ct Pause Bench Work up to x5 @9 2 Down Set


    Squats w/Belt:
    Warm Up- Bar x 10, 60kg x 5, 110kg x 5, 140kg x 3
    160kg x 3 @7
    170kg x 3 @8
    182.5kg x 3 @9
    Drop
    170kg x 3 x 2 @8, 8

    My left quad is knotted up and sore. Caused some discomfort today, but didn't seem to hamper me. Up a little from last week's e1RM. Not at PR levels, but I have probably done 180kg x 3 @9 for the last 2 months so it was like a small plateau being broken.

    Here the vid of the top set. It was a little weird because I almost lost position for a sec on rep 2, but I killed rep 3. Hmmm


    3ct Pause Press:
    Warm Up: Bar x 10, 40kg x 10, 60kg x 5,
    80kg x 5 @7
    85kg x 5 @8
    87.5kg x 5 @9
    Drop
    85kg x 5 @9
    80kg x 5 @9

    These at 5 reps were brutal. I went conservative based on last week's struggle. From rep 4 to rep 5 seems to be the biggest issue...something around that TUT causes me to struggle to keep back tightness. Blahh brutal but what I need.

    Ya no doubt. I felt it too. Tightened up on rep three and it made a big difference. I seem to be having some of these mental lapses lately on squats and need to make it stop.

    I've noticed that tends to happen with Oly shoes a little more often since you don't have to focus on it as much.
