  2. tonight's workout

    Deadlift [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
    Incline Bench [email protected]/185/205/205/225/225
    Dip [email protected]/25/50/75/75
    BB Lunge [email protected]
    Situps [email protected]/20/30

    I was supposed to do DLs on a box, but my grip was killing me when I tried the first set, so I decided to opt out. Even the first DL series was taxing, so the first DL day under sheiko 31 is going to own me.....

  3. if you are having problems with your grip look into wraps but only use them on your last sets. It is better to fully work your back imo than let your grip strength determine your back workout.

  4. good point- it was not so much that my grip faltered, but the skin of my palms felt very raw and painful when i released the weight. I think I will try straps on my second DL sequence.....

    thanks

    no problemo just make sure not to rely on them too much because then your grip may go to sh!t... do you use chalk?

  6. It's Sheiko 31 time....


    last night was my first Sheiko 31 workout... Phuck!!!!!

    DB flies [email protected]
    GMs [email protected]/235/285/235/185


    there was supposed to be a second squat series after the flies, but that pyramid at 405 killed me, i couldnt do one extra squat (and i tried). I also had a crappy spotter for my last bench set at 305, he didnt let me struggle the last rep and pulled the bar out of my hands. But I was nonetheless pleasantly surprised at my bench performance....

    I also toned down the GMs, my lower back was really acting up, again thanks to that 405 squat pyramid.

    one heck of a bench pyramid today, but I was able to complete it. for the second DL series i wore my straps, mainly because I was on a rack and the metal on metal banging would cause major vibration pain. the lst set was sequesnce was supposed to be [email protected], but i was only able to do two sets of 1 rep.

  8. Squat [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
    Bench [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
    Dip [email protected]/30/60/90/90
    Squat [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]


    skipped French press and seated GMs, my back was starting to hurt and the dips were more than enough tri work....

    tried something different today, wore a squat suit for the first time for the second squat series. i really wanted to try the second series, but my legs had very little left, so i donned a squat suit and worked the series with the straps off. it actually felt really good on the hips and thighs- I still couldn't do the whole series, did [email protected] instead of 4x4.

    My recovery is worth noting: i have done sheiko before so I had an idea what to expect, both in and out of the gym. My recovery this time around is almost shocking to me, very little muscle soreness, i can actually handle flights of stairs with little discomfort.... I attribute this to a combination of HMB and OKG, which i have never dosed before. I am taking 6-8grams of HMB a day, with 3grams PWO, and dosing 8caps of Universal's OKG pwo only. I really think it has made a difference....

  9. hmb? okg?

  10. yep, its the only new thing I have added to my line-up, and the recovery effect has been dramatic.

  12. my next run I plan on changing a few things. on the days I lift twice I want to modify the 2nd series, like on bench do board work or floor press, and on squat do box squats. I also want to scrap db flies all together and replace them with facepulls, db snatches and halbert rolls; and maybe replace dips with a more bench-specific triceps movement, and add heavy shrugs on DL day.

    ahhh my sheiko routines (the psu modified ones) include board presses and shirted work but yours looks to be an interesting run.

    my DL is feeling really sucky, I dont feel like its getting better. the second dl round was supposed to be a 2x4 sequence, but the pain on my palms limited me to a 1x4. on the plus side, my bench is really rocking, my confidence at handling weights over 315 is becoming really solid.

  15. Squat
    Incline Bench
    Squat


    SkullKrushers
    Back raises


    Used the squat suit again for the second squat series, straps down. the back pumps were pretty intense by the time I was done, it was hard to even complete the back raises at bodyweight.
