    Bench:
    8 sets of 5 with 302#

    Started really rough/fatigued, but things improved quite a bit. Fatigue remains a total mystery.

    OpenBarbell somehow missed a rep in the first set. Oy.

      Pretty big day.

      Bench:
      (today's sessions was "find a single between .15 and .20 meters second, then 5 doubles with ~85%):

      singles @ 309, 330, 352,375, 395, 405 (405 was .16 m/s), then

      5 doubles with 352

      My wife had no idea what the load was:

        Thanks, man. I guess I found my single between .15-.20 m/s.

      2/18/19

      Bench:
      309x5,5,4,4,4,4

      Lat Pulldowns: 3 sets to @8-9 using 2 25kg and 1 20kg plates on my new Titan cable attachment thingy.

      Much fatigue. Not too surprising given the session 48 hours ago. Almost "autoregulated intersession rest"...but pushed through the session. Not sure why I had it in my mind that I should be doing favhes with this weight. This is my "sets of 4" relative intensity. But I did fahves on the first two sets before I realized I was failing to comply with my own method.

        Bench:

        7 sets of 3 with 335#

        Lat Pulldowns & Dips: 12 minute Bro Density Block

        ^Total meh. STILL freaking fatigued from Saturday's heavy benching.

          Bench:
          10 sets of 5 with 298

          50 reps, but only one rep crossed the threshold to stimulating (that rep being rep 3 of the 8th set...the .39 meters per second rep). Every other set was, literally, below RPE 5.

          LPD: 3 sets to @9ish

            Been sick. Throat still nasty. I had doubles with 85% planned, but was going to make this a low-intensity session. But then decided doubles with 85% sounded nice. High-balling the e1RM right now.

            Bench:
            singles @309, 330, then
            6 doubles with 360

              BW : 228.2

              Down 7 pounds since starting my quasi-cut. Having a brutal sore throat for 4 days works wonders for weight loss. Managed to maintain strength, though, which is good.

              12 minute Bro Block (2 movement density block) with dips and lat pulldowns

                Seems like everyone who doesn't actually lift is making curves..figured I may as well too.

                X-axis is training year. Y-axis is Bench-48 hour max recoverable "stress"/volume using a normalized fatigue metric (which is kinda valid from 65-90%, but which needs some correction at the extremes.

                Based "on what I've seen" I think this is what volume titration actually looks like over time:

                  Hey. I hexbar squead every couple of weeks!

                  I just don't think there's much transfer from deads and squats to javelin (my "comp" movement). Or, rather, I suspect there's strong transfer up until squat = 525ish & dead = 550ish.....but really little beyond that.


                  I'll LP back to those target numbers when it's much warmer.

                  Huge transfer with bench

                  I think so, yeah. But it's almost like....you want more muscle fiber for the viscoelastic benefits. The contraction is stupid fast.

                  This guy could do a pullover with something like 275#. Which requires a headfucking amount of pec strength:

                  I do them off and on. I should train them as a main lift.

                  But this benching is so damned fun.

                  BW: 228

                  Bench:

                  e1rm = 430? wtf? Not buying that...but the velocities sorta work out to that.

                  6 sets of 2 with 366

                  Notes: 96 hours since my last workout. It's been brutally cold and I've been sick. Still felt dizzy and like I might barf today...but I really wanted to do doubles with 366.

                  Apparently Bozeman was one of the coldest places on earth 2 days ago with a recorded temp at the local airport of -35 F. I think that's a legit reason for cancelling a workout in an unheated garage:

                    Me: "Everything fucking hurts. And I'm actually not getting that strong. But I FUCKING LOVE TM!!!! TM FOR LIFE BITCHES!!!!"

                    I hate myself.

                    I'm having you land on post #49 of that log...because...well...irony.

                  BW (this excites me):



                  Bench:
                  8 sets of 4 with 324

                  Man, yup...still freaking fatigued from the 85% session. I really need 72 hours after heavy work. That said, 75% seemed to move okay.

                    singles @ 309, 330, 352, 375, 390
                    CG bench: 3 sets of 5 with 275

                    Crazy high fatigue today. Even 155 hurt during warmups. Need to chill with the intensity.

                      [email protected], 375, 396, 409

                      Gonna make a run for a dead PR. Might compete in a push/pull in Fall.

                      Taking rest of week off from bench . Overdid the intensity the past couple of weeks.

                        I know you're concerned about your velocity, explosiveness, etc ... but I'd much rather have someone do that than take a week off.

                        Full speed, full time, Brah.

                        No, I actually agree with you. Ended up not taking much time off anyhow.

                        But, man, those transient 5% drops in e1rm are sure spooky, though. No like.

                      Good. Still slightly fatigued, but much, much better. OpenBarbell was freaking out today. Not sure what happened, but my data is all messed up.
