  4. Su 5th March


    Failed a 20min EMOM after 12 min. Protocol was 20 triples with 160kg (352Ib) beltless. Pulled the pin after 12th set because my form really fell apart. Went into it unsure I would be able to complete this progression as, honestly, I was still pretty fatigued from the last 3 weeks of 20min EMOMs with squats and deadlifts.

    Finished the session with 3x8 with 140kg focusing on sliw negs for a good core workout.

  9. Wed 8th March skwaaaats

    First time squatting 3 plates for a couple weeks. Felt very rusty, but wporked up to 5x3 with 140kg (308Ib) beltless, paused. Pretty happy with my speed, and rpe (expected this to be quite high).

    Afterwards I did some upper body mobility & rehab stuff.

  10. Mon 13th March Bench Power

    Havent logged since last Wed, and havent trained either. First 4 day break fo a long time due to moving house late last week and getting pretty sick over the weekend! Anyway back now and starting the week fresh.

  11. Omg just lost almost the whole log. Bloody touchy tablet.

    Anyway, went something like this:

    Worked up to 115kg 253Ib bench press for 5 sets 3 with long pauses, super slow descents. I wore a belt for these to combat bad back cramps during warmups, and every set felt unbelievably easy. Ever set qast rpe8 or under, except for last set which was a 9. I am consistently gaining strength and control with benchpress after a month of deloading.

    Yates Rows bench grip: Worked up to 5x3 with 110kg

    Barbell Row bench grip: 110kgx8

    BW pullups supine grip : 3x8 pretty easy but starting to feel the weekend spent with GI woes.

  22. Fri 31st march

    Back is cactus. Physio thinks i have injured L3 l2 facet joint and the subsequent infammation has trapped nerves to left hip and thigh. Pretty much rules out tge big 3 for 2 or 3 weeks.

    I have been taking celecrex for the last 3 days and am avle to work again roday, so im at the gym now running thru exercises the physio prescribed to floss the nerves and get blood flowing into my lower back and hip. Boring stuff.

  23. Im back.

    Had a ton of inflammation at L3 L4 facet which was shutting me out from control of the muscles in my L hip & lower back. In conjunction with PT, I have veen doing a heap of mobility work with belt squats over the last 3 weeks, no barbell work beyond light deadlift.

    Today I am going to dip my toes in the water with some mediumish pause squats. I am going tomslowly ease back into volume with back squats by running belt squats behind them for the next 3 months.

    Worked up to:
    120kgx3 shoulder mobility sucks today
    140kgx3 r hip tight
    140kgx3 so ugly. Trying to focus on breaking at the hips.
    140kgx3 bar path all over the shop
    120kgx3 barefoot, low bar. Bar path better but cant hit depth.

    Belt squats

    40kgx15 r hip tight
    60kgx16 r hip still [email protected]#$ing tight!
    60kgx16 r hip ok now

    Linear hack squats

    40kg 4x12

    Think next week i might warm up with the linear hack squats.

  24. Yesterday became a rest day after I spent the night with my little boy as he battled a pretty bad fever.

    Today I had a great upper volume sesh.

    Changed my protocol for push movements, swapping out bench press for legs up db press. Hit 3x10 with 30kg dbs.

    Then Pendlay Rows wide grip slow eccentric, hitting 60kg for 3x12 and 80kg for 6, 6, & 8 (AMRAP).

    BW dips knees up 12, 12, 8

    BW chinup 5x8

    Bent over lateral db raise supersets (10kgx10; 5kgx5)x3
