  • 290 still doesn't want to go up for 5 reps on squat. 290 x 3, 290 x 2 was the best I could muster today.
    Bench press: 210 x 5 (New PR)
    Deadlift: 395 x 4, 395 x 1. (Supposed to be 395 x 5)
    Fat-gripz deficit deadlift: 165 x 5 (easier than 160 last week or 155 the week before. At least grip is getting stronger)
    Some power snatch form work with embarrassingly light weight
    Bodyweight inverted rows alternated with dips + 47.5 (sets of 10)

    Going to have to change the squat and deadlift to 5 singles and keep the weight going up. When that stops working, deload and back to 5's. When that runs its course, back to a bastardized version of 5/3/1 for me.

    • Deadlift Day
      Deadlift (1x5x67.5kg) (1x5x77.5kg) (1x5x87.5kg) (2x90kg)
      Deadlift (5x10x67.5kg)
      Squat (2x10x50kg) (3x10x52.5kg)
      Leg Raises (3x15)

      Finally got one of the gym PT's to get a vid of my form - not too shabby, but could do with some improvement.

      • Anybody have TRX workout ideas/regime ?


        • Jumping on shovel head = plyometrics.
          Squatting to lower shovel handle and pop up the lawn chunks = squatting and arm work.
          Tearing apart brutally stubborn tree roots = Tenacious and maximal effort body-wide. Had to stop and breathe.
          Dragging and loading/unloading giant-salamander-sized strips of lawn = lifting heavy things and moving slowly, squats, arms and back.
          Sweat pouring in sheets down my face the whole time = Cardio.

          I think today is covered on the exercise front.

              What is your favorite workout - or one that is non-traditional perhaps? Just shopping for ideas, so I'm looking forward to what anyone has to add.

              One non - traditional routine is 'shovelglove' which you should google. It's basically imitation natural movements, shoing, axe cutting, etc using a sledge hammer. Its an AWESOME workout.


              • 3x5 squat, 3x5 bench, 1x5 deadlifts, 10 mins of HIIT today (not including my warmup sets). im on fitocracy sunsys.

                  Dumbell Press (4x12x12.5kg)

                  • Just walking today and tomorrow, fasting since yesterday evening until tomorrow evening.


                    • Clean-Grip Deadlifts:3X3 @ 205#
                      Front Squat:4X2 @ 185-200# (PR )

                      Pushups: 3X12


                      • Well, here's the plan. No guarantees, but I'm confident that I can make these lifts today.

                        Squat: 5 singles, 300lbs
                        Bench press: 5 x 5 x 190
                        Deadlifts: 395 x 5 (1 set only)
                        Fat-grip deficit deadlifts: 170 x 5 (1 set only)
                        Power Cleans: Whatever pathetic weight I can rack for some singles. Hopefully >165 for at least 3.
                        Dips: 3 or more sets to/near failure with some added weight. If all of the above doesn't take >2 hours.
