  • Been traveling for the past week so I missed a couple of workouts. I'm still on the road but I managed to squeeze in a session today. Hoping to get another one in on Wednesday.

    Squat with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 225x5x2. Three minutes rest.

    Press with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 115x5x3. Three minutes rest.

    BB rows for myoreps: [email protected]; 155x5x2; 155x4x1. Three deep breaths between sets.

    • Back from traveling. My training suffered a bit. All together I got in 3 workouts while I was on the road--the one posted above; a GPP day; and a dumbbell workout in a Hampton Inn's mini-gym.

      Continued with the time-crunch program this week, since work has kept me pretty busy.

      Tuesday:

      Squat with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 240x5x2. Three minutes rest.

      Press with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 115x5x2. Three minutes rest.

      BB rows, myoreps: [email protected]; 155x5x3; 155x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

      Today (Thursday):

      Paused bench: [email protected]; [email protected]; 185x5x2. Three minutes rest.

      Squat, no belt, myoreps: [email protected]; 200x3x2; 200x2x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

      RDLs, myoreps: [email protected]; 175x5x2; 175x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

      • He's back!

        With all the traveling, I forgot to ask:

        Do you gain or lose weight while on the road?

        • He's back!


          I lost a couple of pounds, even though I had packed a tub of whey protein (and creatine) in my luggage! (Not to mention lunch at the Saturn Club.) Weighed in at 199 this morning.

          • GPP today:

            • Day 3 of the time crunch since returning from my trip:

              Deadlift with belt: 395x1x1`@8; [email protected]; 325x5x2. Three minutes rest.

              Incline bench, myoreps: [email protected]; 105x4x3; 105x3x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

              Single-arm db rows, myoreps: [email protected]; 70x5x1; 70x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

                • Week 2, Day 1 of time crunch program:

                  Squat with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 245x5x2. Three minutes rest.

                  Press with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 117.5x5x3. Three minutes rest.

                  BB rows, myoreps: [email protected]; 160x5x4; 160x5x3. Five deep breaths between sets.

                  I'm being fairly conservative with the weights since I just returned from a trip with sketching training. I think I can add 5 pounds to the squat for a few weeks, and 2.5 to the press.

                  • Week 2 day 3 on Time Crunch:

                    One-count paused bench: [email protected]; [email protected]; 187.5x5x3. Three minutes rest. Very hot in the garage today. I don't think the 3-day time crunch program will result in much bench progress but I'm hoping maybe to make some small gains over the summer.

                    Squat, no belt, myoreps: [email protected]; 215x4x1; 215x2x1. Five deep breaths between sets. These aren't much fun.

                    RDL, myoreps: [email protected]; 185x5x1; 185x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets. I used straps with these to help my grip. I can probably add quite a bit of weight to these.

                    • Week 2, day 3:

                      Deadlift with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 330x5x2. Three to four minutes rest.

                      Incline bench, myoreps: [email protected]; 107.5x5x2; 107.5x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

                      Single-arm DB rows, myoreps: [email protected]; 60x5x4; 60x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

                      • Week 3 day 1 on the time-crunch template. (Did 30 mins of LISS on airdyne yesterday.)

                        Squat with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 250x4x2. Three minutes rest. The first two sets were supposed to be RPE 8 and 9 respectively so I think I'll add 10 pounds next week.

                        Press with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 120x4x2. Same deal here--I'll try adding 5 pounds next week.

                        BB rows, myoreps: [email protected]; 170x5x2; 170x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets.

                        Supersets:
                        DB curls: 30 (each) [email protected]
                        Triceps press downs: [email protected]
                        Ab wheel: 2 sets of 10.

                        • Week 3 day 2 on time crunch template.

                          One-count paused bench: [email protected]; [email protected]; 192.5x4x2. Three minutes rest. I might repeat this weight next week just to make sure the RPEs are right.

                          Squat, no belt, myoreps: [email protected]; 220x4x1; 220x2x1. Five deep breaths between sets. These are very tough. I'm not sure if my muscles or my cardiovascular system is the limiting factor with these but I'll try adding 5 pounds next week.

                          RDL with straps, myoreps: [email protected]; 195x5x1; 195x4x1. Five deep breaths between sets. I'll add 10 pounds next week.

                          • I'd go with cardio being the limiting factor...

                              Yes, that seems to be the case, which raises a question I think I'll post to the docs.

                              Today, week 3 day 3.

                              Deadlift with belt: [email protected]; [email protected]; 340x4x2. Three minutes rest.

                              Incline bench, myoreps: [email protected]; 110x5x1; 110x4x1; Five deep breaths between sets.
