  • Still On The Right Side Of The Grass

    10/16/18

    Seems like an appropriate time to transition over from SS. I'm back from Raw Natl's and ready to start a new training block. I've got everything written down for the last three years, so no loss if I "lose" my log over there.



    Recovery Week reps/sets

    HB Box Squat - 195lbs 5*3
    Bench (from pins) - 185lbs 1*5
    Deadlift - 360lbs 1*5

    Hammer Curls - 50lbs 10*3


    I'm tired from travel, competing, and inadequate food. It's nice that this week is "do your own thing".

    Bike Sprints - level 10 /12 / 14 / 16 / 18 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off

          Cycle One Week One reps/sets

          Deadlift - 160kg 8*3, 140kg 8*3

          Deadlift days are soooo longggg. First set sucked. Staying in the down position for any length of time kills me. I have to remember to start from the top for each rep.

          SBD Saturday coming up...

                  Looks like we're both easing back into things, BD/PD. My back is still bothering me a little bit but not enough to stop me from training. I'll start keeping a codger's quest log here with a slightly different user name.

                    Cycle One Week Two reps/sets

                    T&G Bench - 80kg *8, *7 (*1), 72.5kg 8*2, *7 (*1), *6 (*2)
                    Paused Bench (3 ct) - 62.5kg 6*3
                    Tempo Larson Press - 52.5kg 8*3

                    Dumbbell Incline Bench - 45lbs 10*4
                    Dumbbell Press - 30lbs 10*5
                    Tri Pulldowns - 40kg 8*3

                    Just a hard day. Lots of turmoil outside the gym has me tired, and under fed. What I couldn't hit on the Bench, I rested 10-20 seconds and came back to get the reps required.

                    These days happen...

                      I hope things settle down soon.

                        Cycle One Week Two rep/sets

                        Deadlift (beltless) - 165kg 8*3, 147.5kg 8*3
                        RDL - 105kg 15*3

                        Bench - 72.5kg *8, *6/2, *3/5
                        Barbell Row - 75kg - 8*3

                        GHR - bw 8*3

                        For "feeling" like shite, it was a very good deadlift session. Quick reps within the sets.

                        Tried to superset the Bench with the Row...disasterous.

                        Hands are a little raw after all the pulling.

                          SBD Saturday reps/sets

                          Safety Squat Bar - 82.5kg 8*4

                          T&G Bench - 72.5kg 8*6

                          Block Pulls - 180kg 6*5

                          ...and that's a full day folks.

                          Getting the hang of the Safety Squat Bar. I can hit depth much easier using this bar for some odd reason.
                          Bench was fatiguing, again. I'm not cool with that at these weights.
                          Block Pulls were a study in patience. I need to treat them like Sumo Deads, they're gonna be slow off the blocks, but they will come up.

                            That is a lot of pulling! How high are the blocks that you use? I'm thinking of buying a pair.
