    Is this Toro's log? Where is that beast. Oh yeah, he's traveling. But he's never far from where he needs to be. Viva Toro!

    Greetings, men.

    Been a while since I checked in. Today is my first day back since my deadlift (not including my failed upper body deload). It's bad, guys. Decided to redo my first week of cube squats, I got 2 sets left of squatting, and I already feel done.

    Will give these 2 sets my best and report back when I'm done.

    Phew, managed to pull it off somehow. It wasn't what I wanted going into today but it got done, anyways, and I can't express how happy I was to leave the gym and walk away with my numbers in one form or another. More below log.

    11/26/13

    SQUAT RE1

    SSB SQUAT
    155-5,5
    245-5
    275-3
    315-8,8,8 <-- felt I might have been able to complete 1 or 2 more reps on my last set, until..

    SSB PAUSE SQUATS
    295-10,6,8 rest-pause 4 rest-pause 2 <-- 30 total reps

    RUSSIAN KNEE CURLS
    BW-11 rest-pause 3+1 rest-pause 1+1 --> 15 reps + 2 assisted
    Good negatives used each rep

    DB LUNGES
    10 (20lb total)-15,15

    HANGING AB RIPPER
    BW-15,13,13

    ....yeah, so that was rough. This is the same workout I did 4 weeks ago, but today it was at least twice as hard. This could easily go down as my hardest leg workout to date since I started powerlifting. It took some serious will-power to finish off the pause squats and to do anything else (GHR, lunges, etc) afterwards. My quads are so insanely fried I can't run, walk up stairs fast, or anything of that sort. This is some serious quad pump similar to how I feel after HIIT work on a bike. Despite what appears to be a definite decrease in performance somewhere I'll at least take the fact my rep work with 315 was ok. It's like my strength was there but my strength endurance was totally gone. What a fatass.

    That is one hell of a workout. Takes a lot to be able to do heavy reps + pauses + lunges + walking out.

    Haha @ walking out.

    I stopped by the store as I was out of pop tarts, and as I was crossing the street I saw a car driving by. I tried to run across the street so he could go about his business but all I managed to do was scuttle for a few steps then walk my way slowly across the street. Was pretty bad lol

    red bands-5x20

    DB ROLLING EXTENSIONS superset DB HAMMER CURLS superset TRIPLE THREATS
    50-15,15,15

    ROPE TRICEP PUSHDOWNS
    70-10,9
    70x7 drop 50x4 drop 30x6

    Fairly happy with today's workout. I'll try to do some RC work tomorrow morning before I head over to my aunt and uncles. The benching was stupid easy and I actually wished I could go back in time and bump my working sets up by 5lbs. It's ok, though. It just means that I have room to work with through my shoulder rehab and that I might blast through my last PR when I go for it in about 12 weeks. I've also noticed something. So I feel I've mentioned I have this crazy ass knot right below my left scapula and have had it there for at least 2 years, if not longer. I can't ever get to it with a lacross ball, roller, etc. It just doesn't seem to "come alive" when I'm on the ground, only when I'm standing. Also, the shoulder pain is greatest when I retract my scapula and hold my arms out straight without any weight. So the act of retracting my shoulder blade causes pain. I find this to be an interesting development. I might actually use my doctor's RX and seek therapy and see if the therapists have any idea what this may mean. So other than that, good times. Again, BO rows sucked because my quads and hams were so tired to support me during the rows, lol.

    I feel it's worth noting because it's my log, but I was dragging major ass during this workout (and somewhat during last night's workout, too). I've been on a stim-free preWO for at least a few weeks, potentially 4 weeks. It was weird because I was so anxious to hit the weight while benching that I think I did all my bench sets within 30 minutes. But everything else took way too long. I did finish well within 3 hours but I noticed I was taking really long breaks between sets. I only slept about 4 hours last night, so that could be it. Stupid leg-day insomnia.

    Pick up some COP and citmal? Works for me at least. Any reason for no stims?

    I like to wash it out of my system every now and then. I did 2 rounds of Muscle Marinade so it was time for a break.

    I still drink caffeine, but this morning I took it in the morning. Didn't think of taking it before working out.

    Also, cookie dough pop tarts get 2 thumbs up from me. Not quite sure if they're on par with OG strawberry pop tarts, but they're certainly solid. Could get stale after a couple of boxes, though.

    I think that one and strawberry are the gold standards of pop tarts.

    Never seen it! I've grown fond of s'mores. I'll be on the search for cookie dough now, thanks to you.

    ya brown sugar, strawberry and cookie dough are the trifecta. You get an appetizer/seasoning, a fruit and a desert.

    Nice sesh, Toro. Bench is looking on point.

    Pain pattern sounds similar to mine. Consider referred pain from cervical spine or thoracic facets, as well as supraspinatus strain. Hang in there and heal up, bud. Ice, ibuprofen/naprosyn/diclofenac and curcumin are your friends. As are turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and pie.

    Happy Turkey Day!

    Oh yeah, in South Fla. for holiday with family and friends.

    I never felt anything from Cit Mal, but I might think about going down on some COP someday.

    Anyways....

    Man, all this vacationing has left me a little drained. Saw friends and family and/or took daytrips for 7 of the 9 days of this week, 1 day being a workday (and I still had a potluck with some friends that evening) and another day being a totally off day. My workout schedule has been thrown off quite a bit because of it, but I have no complaints. I'll just have to keep it all together and hopefully make things right in another 3-4 weeks.

    12/01/13

    DEADLIFT C1W1

    LXC upper body, PVC upper and lower back, ITB and adductors, SMR ITB and adductors, LXC glutes, rocking frog stretch, hip circles x10 forward/backward. Adductors, quads, and ITB were super sore until after all of this.

    2" BLOCK PULLS
    225-4
    315-4
    405-2
    490-5 <-- +15lb PR
    1-2 reps left in the tank

    CAT DEADLIFTS
    375-4x4 <-- felt easy

    SSB DEAD SQUATS
    280-6x1 <-- 30 seconds between attempts

    SSB GM
    260-12,10,12,10,10

    STRAIGHTBAR STANDING AB CRUNCHES
    90-15,15,15

    Video of the PR lift forthcoming.

    Thanks, guys. The pulls felt real good. Maybe having 3 thanksgiving meals helped me out there, hah! (though I actually dropped weight this week from 270 to 263).

    I kind of like having at least 1 of my deadlift workouts during my 12 week cycle be a 5 repper. Can't hurt too much.

    I end up hitting 5 reps quite often. But after a year 5-3-1 is progessing fast enough that I'm slowing down, but I can still usually pull my 3 day for 5+ when I go AMRAP. sucks though. Rep deads really blow.

    Yeah, they do, haha.

    I also do not benefit well from doing rep deads, especially back to back. I did them for about a year and a half and only put on about 15lbs on my max in that time frame. Since August '12, I added 30lbs initially in 7 months, then 40lbs in 8 months by doing very low rep work and then following that up with some volume work, either in the form of lighter weight speed or CAT work and/or with goodmornings.

    Just goes to show how we're all different as lifters and have different needs. And even those needs change overtime as our strength and age changes.

    Nice pulling. As long as you are pulling 3 or 5 rep PR's your dead should move. You do have to pull single thought to get used to grinding them out. That is my opinion at least and what I have found.

    I've added a hell of a lot of strength over the past year but some of it was muscle memory versus pure new gains til the end. The whole point of 5-3-1 is to get rep PRs but also hit heavy singles (and do more w joker sets and other mods to the program). But you're right everyone does respond a little different to different types of training.

    SPEED BENCH C1W1

    PVC upper and lower back, LXC upper body, band dislocations (PVC DC shoulder dislocations this morning), PNF lat and chest stretch.

    BALLISTIC BENCH (pause 1" from chest)
    135-5,3
    185-3
    205-6x3 <-- 45 seconds between sets

    Lots of pec stretching, shoulder feels better doing this

    DB HIGH INCLINE BENCH (+fatgripz)
    75-14 <-- shoulder hurt bringing the dbs up but felt fine during execution of exercise
    Mechanical dropset: 75x14 drop x5 drop x6

    The last setting, flat bench, hurts my shoulder

    RING PULLUPS superset TRIPLE THREATS
    BW-6,6,6
    black through black band-14,12,13

    LAT PULLDOWNS superset TRIPLE THREATS
    180-10,8 <-- bar to chest, no momentum
    black through black band-12,13

    DB SCAPTIONS superset EZ CURLS superset ROPE PUSHDOWNS
    25-17,17,10
    95-15,15,14 <-- cheated 3-5 reps each set. weight too heavy for this rep scheme right now
    65-15,15,15

    Pretty solid workout. I was having trouble warming up on the bench because of my shoulder but after remembering to do the PNF stretch everything felt fine. Other remarks are written in the log itself. Other than that, I really breezed through this workout, time-wise, finishing in under an hour and a half including my stretching. I also ended the workout with a DC shoulder stretch, and it felt AMAZING. I need to do this one more often. I am really starting to think that I dont have a shoulder impingement but have just been dealing with a very tender shoulder or pec muscle that is strained or having a spasm, but either way I'll continue with all the stuff I'm doing until I feel well.

    SQUAT DE1

    PVC upper and lower body, ITB and adductors, LXC upper body, forgot to LXC glutes, bent knee iron cross, rocking frog stretch, hip circles x10 forward/backward

    SSB SPEED SQUAT
    290-8x2 <-- 35 seconds between sets

    SSB REVERSE BAND SQUAT
    335-3
    425-3
    475-3

    SSB PAUSE SQUAT
    270-8,8,8

    RUSSIAN KNEE CURL
    BW-10 rest-pause 3+2 rest pause 2+1 <-- 15 rest-paused reps + 3 assisted
    Good negatives on eccentric, but very hard to apply this near the top

    Again, same workout I did last month. The difference is I didn't do lunges today because my left piriformis (?) was on fire. This was due to forgetting my SMR work on my glutes. I did it after the speed squats but by then the damage was done. No big deal. I can't remember how this workout felt the first time around, but it was pretty good this time, much better than last week. I've been playing around with my upper back and head position and I think I've developed some good habits now for staying upright. 475 made me round my upper back kind of hard but my legs were able to squat the weight up.a

    Thanks man. Just giving it the same old whirl! I will also get in a bench workout tomorrow, or try to, before I leave for the weekend. Hope it goes well.
