Ah, gotcha. Yah you cant trust those scales for an accurate measurement as a single data point but in terms of trending your progress they're still useful for getting a ballpark.RENPHO
It’s attached to my scale. Not accurate but gives me something measurable to to move forward on.
I’m only taking 6g/d but it has had a huge impact on my joints. It may be the combination of turmeric (whole body inflammation reduction) + the collagen but this has been the best couple of months for my knees and elbows.Do you feel collagen peptides actually make any kind of noticeable difference in your recovery whatsoever? And how much do you take?
They say that’s what lifters who go to hell have to do all day. And it’s always January and full of Resolutioners, and the playlist just rotates between Kelly Clarkson and Arianna Grande.
It is pretty common practice with strength programs isn't it? I know that they build that into 5-3-1.W1D3

I don’t know if you guys who are following tend to do this but as I’ve gone back and looked at my notes, my intro week I tend to pull the throttle back on my first RM for the training cycle. Do you guys do this? Like, my squat was almost a 10% reduction from my last training cycle 1rm and my bench was as well. I believe I do this so I don’t peter out so early into my block but who knows? Maybe it’s still hesitation with my back because I came off a de load week?
Be easy fellas
I couldn’t remember the exact % decrease across the board but iirc 531 and TM either decrease 5% or 10%It is pretty common practice with strength programs isn't it? I know that they build that into 5-3-1.
Also HST which is hypertrophy based does the same thing. Finish out the cycle, deload for a week - 10 days, start new cycle lower again and work your way up to just beating your old numbers by the end of it, rinse and repeat.
With hypertrophy anyway, jumping back in full bore after a deload cuts out a few opportunities for adaptation at lower weights due to the deconditioning that takes place during a deload.
More affirmation I’m doing something right lolI definitely try to hold something back coming off a low point/deload. You have to have room to progress, and the fortitude to keep going long enough to make progress. If I push full boar I can literally blow my load in 3 training sessions going all out. Some guys don’t know how to push, but as you age and strengthen and become a better power athlete, your ability to dig deep will eclipse your recoverability without a doubt.
But progress doesn’t come from training as hard as possible anyway - it comes from consistently doing enough to practice and get the stimulus. If you listen to Louie discuss the ME Method, maxing weekly, it’s all set up to still allow continued training. If they hit a comp lift to failure, even a rep max, weekly they would fall off fast. Doing lifts that require less weight, short rests, only 3 total reps at/over 90%, all help limit exposure. And even then 2 of their 4 training days are heavy like this. The other 2 are more feeder and technique.
I’ll have to adjust the dose, two caps causes diarrhea with only 30g cho. Didn’t have any symptoms of hypoglycemia but shatin water isn’t cool lolDamn if I had done that I would have went hypo for sure. In general I actually do terribly using a GDA pre-training. Just impossible to keep my blood sugar up without adding fats to draw it out.
I found one cap of blue sugar is about all I could use if I wanna make it through my normal sessionsI’ll have to adjust the dose, two caps causes diarrhea with only 30g cho. Didn’t have any symptoms of hypoglycemia but shatin water isn’t cool lol
A single cap will probably be sufficient for me as a pre cap for my volume days
Getting use to morning workouts is hard but the body does adapt. Im going to need to catch up on your log.W2D3
*12 min brisk walk @3.6mph with last minute being high steps with glute contractions
Standard PC warm up

Man, trying to train first thing in the morning with no food is polar opposite from training in the afternoon lol everything felt 10lbs heavier. Also, I’m just not use to it.. well, not use to lifting heavy anyhow.
Definitely try to google your symptoms and see if u can deal with it youself without hurting yourself. I had a bulging disk and many recommended one of those inverted tables. It definitely did the job!W2D2
*brisk walk for 10 min @3.5mph and a slight incline
Low incline bench
Seated row w/straight bar

Standing pallof press
2 sets per side amrap
Completely forgot my pull throughs. Probably a good thing because I had something going on with my lumbar, it wasn’t quite the same feeling as when I initially injured my back but feels somewhat like a strained erector? If I take a deep breath while belted and the bar on my back I feel some weird sensation, it’s hard to explain. Nothing while actually squatting or pulling but standing holding the bar I get the feeling
