  • ^ I would do that many sets and reps, but then typing it into this thread would just take way to long

        Heh, now back from the two hours and ten minutes long workout; I even did more than planned: I supersetted the heel raises on leg-press machine with reverse hacklift for 4 extra sets of 15 reps, just to feel a little sore in my butt tomorow...

        • Well, we learned Gorbag likes feeling sore in his butt.. I knew this thread had a purpose.

          I squatted 305 for 3 sets of 5 (new PR), Olympic Pressed 142.5 3 x 5 (failed to get 3 x 5 on this twice already. Big day for me), Chin-ups with 35 pounds, 9/6/6, and messed around with some light power cleans for form work. Having trouble transitioning from the 1st pull into the second with heavier weights.

          Going to try some frequency method stuff, start with a super easy 95# and pull a few a couple times a day, hopefully adding weight quickly. I should be cleaning 200+, but at the moment, I am having trouble extending and racking even 155.

            • I'm staying out of town with my girl to visit her family, so that kinda shakes my workout up a bit. All I got is a bench and two dumbells, so yeah.
