    The man recovers from Deadlifts with Deadlifts. You are the man! Haha

    And solid presses from the pins. That is hard as hell.

    Ha, thanks Rob, but my pressing is actually a punchline...!

    9 /30 Deload

    2" Deficit deads #365 x6x4

    Squats #275 x6x4

    15" RDL's Pins #315x12x2

    4" deficit pin pulls #315x8 (for ham stretch)

    Low Cable Rows #200 x12x4

    Static Holds #605>til grip gave out... x2



    Man, I do hate deloads with a passion. It's like I never feel much if any progress doing them at all and they suck and they don't even give coupons. Probably good 2day however, since I felt very flat today and almost weak & low energy. Crappy day a t work too.
    Deloads are like missing an orgasm, or getting pizza with someone who only likes cheese and nothing else on it. Or someone invites you over for a turkey dinner and they put apples, peaches walnuts and raisins in their stuffing, but don't make turkey gravy or mashed potatoes. DELOADS Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa.............!

    I'm thinking of approaching deloads a little differently this time around.

    As my programming has me doing exclusively bilateral barbell lifts throughout my training cycle (so far), I think when I hit a deload I'll do a week of unilateral work for lower body and dumbbell work for upper body, and just push reps out to keep it both challenging and enjoyable while still giving my CNS a break.

    Before I really had to take a full deload every so often because my joints would feel trashed and/or I'd start developing tendonitis, but my shoulders have been feeling pretty healthy, as have my hips and knees, so I think I can get away with this for now.

    Yeah you may be onto something. I deload by instinct first off, since I might have a scheduled DLod but feel really strong that day and want to kill it, so I don;t deload. When I start feeling really flat, then I talk myself into pulling back. I might just do a completely different thing like all assistance or just whacking the ****zen out of hypers, GHR's, pull throughs and try a route like that.

    All I know is, I do not like deloads.

    Ha hungry eh??? I made hot wings on my Weber yesterday and enough so I would have some leftover for my lunch. Guess what??? The oinking pig that I am and how absolute great my wings are, I ate all of them with some celery and a few bottles of Great Lakes Burning River. Wow, I didn't think of any of my friends while I was eating...!

    Had to loosen my hips and legs from the Monday Squats. Since I had not done any serious squatting for over a week or so, I knew I'd be a bit stiff and sore. (How sore were you???) I was so sore, I dropped my wallet, then told a homeless man, he could have the $75.00 in it, it if bent down and got it for me. Haaa buddda bing....!

    Nice work man. You've inspired me to get more volume in my dead sessions...I don't have the work capacity to get up to where you're at, but I'll work on it!

    Hey thanks guy.
    I really think I get a pretty direct correlation between upping my ability to do more and or bump up the power output, to grind out some heavier multi doubles & singles, thus having me hit PR territory. I just have not been feeling like I am really pushing to get to another level or get some supercompensation going.
    When I did the Smolov-ish pulling, I would go to bed at night and feel like I really trained that day, especially my lower back and hips. Gotta wonder if that has something to do with it.

    Hey thanks for stopping by Napalm. I find I have to keep it up or the strength drops kinda quick at my older age. That and I find I slowly, over time, think I am still working hard and find I am dogging it compared to what I was doing say last few cycles.

    Friday 10/11

    BNOHP's #80x10x2

    Reg OHP's #135 x10 singles
    Machine Presses #110 x4,x3,x2,x1,x4,x3,x2,x1 (Ladders)
    #90 x10
    2" Deficit Speed Pulls #315+ 1 Green x2x4 (about #400 at top)
    CGBP's #155 x8x5 (Jeebus this is bad)
    Lying Leg Raises x40
    Hanging x20 ooof my guts
    Shoulder Harness GM's #150 x10
    Oly bar Strict Curl #135 x3 (last one was a bit of hip swing)
    Tri Extens #90 x10x4
    Some grip junk during W/O 6" con blocks a few P/U's
    #2 COC, which only closed once fully. x4's ea.



    Some volume & BBing on the pressing. Some days are better than others with the shoulders. Mid back and erectors feel nice and sore from Weds. pulls, so I wanted to get a little circulation in there with a few speeds and the harness GM's.
    Like some sex, it's a good hurt afterwards...!

    Monday 10/14
    11 1/2" Pin Pulls #315x1
    #405x1
    #495x1
    #545x1
    #585x1
    #605x1 Butt kinda came up 1st on this a bit.
    #585x1 Corrected it more here
    #495x3x3 These felt quite easy and snappy after the 6hunert. Donned the straps

    2" Deficits #405 x7x3 Pretty much all paused but used straps

    3 1/2" Def #225+2 greens x5x2

    Clse Stance Speedish Squats #225+#100 Chains x3x4

    GM's #225+#100 Chains x10
    no chains x10

    Bench Rows #180 x8x5



    Starting to get a gauge for some better volume. I was getting a bit winded/taxed after the 3 sets of 7. but still felt like I could train the back more. After the squats I started to get that beat up back feeling and the GM's just finished the job.
    Felt like it was a keeper. By the time I got to the bench rows I was draggin' ass a little.

    You like the overload of a higher rack? Referring to the 11 1/2" deads

    I thought about it just to hold bigger weight. I inadvertently used to do this when I was trying more bb style programs.

    If you think about it, 45lb plates are around 17-18" tall (17.7 seems to be a common number) which would put the bar at around 8.25" off the ground (taking into account bar diameter). So it's like using 3" blocks, except the bar is pre-bent with pins.

    Interesting...I think my math is off as I am picturing pulling from like knee level as opposed to mid shins. Good call.

    An 18" deadlift is usually just below the knees. A lot of strongman competitions have 18" deadlift events and most strongmen will know what their 18" deadlift is.

    I guess what I imagined and it got me thinking about is holding above maximal weights...sort of like walking out above maximal weights with squats...except with a little more movement sense there is some pull.

    To think I used to metal fabricate and have my inches off...

    Well, I think the heights work a few ways for me.
    I get overload and really used to pulling heavy (or my maxes) without using the entire ROM, so I am not getting taxed from a long pull yet getting a few reps and or sets at above 90%+.
    I also get used to hitting or starting without any momentum the areas right around where the bar will transition to start to move past the knees.
    9" center is a standard from floor pull. So I will also try to work down to that.
    Quite a bit of heavy or max DL's are in the head too, so if I keep visually seeing how much I have on the bar and it is not intimidating looking, then the rest is just hard work.
    I don't go much over/higher 15" however, since I don't get much carryover from floor after that.
    It is another reason I also use deficits, since then I get a long ROM and work off the floor. So when I do go to floor, it feels like a partial.

    Ugh no weekend for me yet. Just a few more hours...

    Another q, unless I missed it I don't think you ever mentioned in your log what your deadlift is. Juging by your workouts, it wouldn't surprise me if you've pulled 600 recently.

    So what is it?

    PLing comps were kinda in the back alleys when I got into it and my presses were always horrid compared to others so I guess that is why I shied away too. With my age and work schedule nowadays, I almost don't care about trying to find one either. Who knows, I have entertained the idea more of late with new found enthusiasm and from watching some of you kids bust ass.
    First and foremost however is, I just love putting my ass into the ground trying to get beat up training.

    Wednesday 10/23
    13" Pin Pulls #495+#100 chains x3x3

    1" Deficit Pin Pulls #405+#100 Chains x7x2
    3 1/2" Defs #425 x7 (This start was pretty much at my arches)

    Squats #225+#100 chains x3
    #275 #100 chns x5x2
    #315 #100 Chns x5

    Low Cable Rows #240 x10x4

    Hypers BW x12x2 Slow return
    +#10 x12


    Well, this ended up pretty good since, when I started into gym, I was dragging ass some. SO I knew I had to get it way up and shake the sand out of my canary yellow panties.
    Anyway, sorta saw the pink elephant on the second 1" def set of 7, so I nixed a 3rd (reading Rodja's new log about some common sense at times, which I know I lack) and went for straight weight and a deeper pull. Jeebus that set felt like it lasted 10 mins. on 6th reps stopped at top tp take a few breaths to cheerlead myself to get the 7th.

    After that, it was quite hilarious how light the squats felt. I was going to just do some speed x3's with the #225 and chains, but I pushed it some.

    On another note. I got a hearing aid for my rt ear. (I know grampie man) I have pretty bad tinnitus in that one from a gun shot 30 years ago maybe and apparently some connections to lifting!? Anyway, went to my reg doc first and he said I was most likely a candidate for TRT replacement cream. I have been seriously thinking about it for a while now. I just know once you go T, you're pretty much on it for life.

    My low back is nice and pumped and feels like a girder is sewn in there.

    I did vid some of this but I am still working on the PMB file transfer to boobtube.
