so not every day is a winner

deadlift: warmup with 135 and 225 for 5, then 275 and 325 for 5. 375 for 4, and completely failed on 395.

overhead press: warmup with bar for 5, then 115, 135, 155 for 5, and 170 for 3. ugh, right where i was last time.

squatz: 135 for 5 to warmup, then 225 and 280 for 5, 330 for 5 and 7.

assisted chinups: 65 lbs assistance for 4x8

preacher curls: 85 lbs for 4x10.

squatz: bar for 5 and 135 for 5 to warmup, then 225, 275, 330, and 380 for 5, 425 for 3, and 330 for 8. Still working on depth above 350 so 425 is gonna be my top weight for a bit. Experimented with a much wider grip today and it felt easier to get the bar lower so I think I'm gonna try that more.

bench press: 135, 160, 205, 225 for 5, 265 for 3, 205 for 8.

barbell rows: 155, 185, 230, 260 for 5, 305 for 3 (!!!), 230 for 8.

dips: 50 added lbs for 7 then 4, bodyweight for 8.

no time to do curls. I think tomorrow I'll treat myself in the am to a nice little cardio and biceps session.

Used the 24 kg kettlebell yesterday in my normal kbell workout. First time I've used it like that in....a couple years at least. I fell way down the mountain for a variety of reasons and have been trying to claw my way back up. I've about remastered the 45 pounder so it's time to kick it up a notch.

I just hope I can keep it up. I'm gonna be moving in with my girlfriend and her 4-year old daughter in the next couple of months. Having the responsibility of being a family man definitely makes me anxious. I hope to find the proper balance in life, because I need to feel like I can still kick ass.

And hopefully still play video games.

Holy hell, Sly is back! Welcome, bro.

@ uudd: Great work on your skwaatz!

Missed some sessions last week bc of rugby stuff and clearing trees in the yard. Got in a solid trap bar session, though.

SSB tonight!

My streak of SSB pr's came to a halt last night. Hit 425 for a triple, which is short of my record, but not bad. Everything just felt extra heavy and I was having trouble getting in the right mindset. Oh, well.

Still got in some quality reps at decent loads, and did some breathing pausies, GHR, and neck as assistance.

THOSE TRIPLES! Yessir.

Just played the last match of the spring rugby season. Back to offseason lifting soon. Gonna take a few days off, in part because of just JESUS IíM OLD AND RUGBY HURTS and also specifically for a newly broken toe.

Have been doing conditioning work on the rower the last few days.

Yesterday, though, I did a little circuit training I got from Dan John. Set up the rack for Swiss OHP and set out the 53# kettlebell. 4 circuits of:

10 swings
3 OHP
15 swings
2 OHP
25 swings
1 OHP
50 swings

Shoulder crapped out on a fifth circuit, so I called it. It didnít *hurt*, itís just weak. Thatís progress.

SSB 410# x 7!

Down to the last hole on my lifting belt!

Here I am showing off my slimming belt, treating myself between the top set and the assistance work, and then a lil quadbeef.

lookin' beastly!

yesterday:

squats: bar and 135 for 5 to warmup, then 230, 275, 325, 375, and 405 for 5.

bench press: 135 for 5 to warmup, then 150, 280, 215, 245, and 275 for 5.

barbell rows: here's where it gets... bad. 160, 195, and 230 for 5. at this point, my IT band on my left thigh is killing me. It started feeling bad after my squats, even though there wasn't anything particularly traumatic about the squats themselves? so then I went to do 265 and after one set my leg just hurt too fucking bad to continue. (((

leverage shrugs: 275 for 4x10

so... I'm going to see my chiropractor today to see if there's anything he can unlock. might have to put off my next lifting day to Thursday... or later.

Thanks, man. Your belt/beer pictures are nice. Your leg muscles are impressive, but I'm almost more impressed with your beard muscles.

This weekend was a mess, and I got quite sick, so my routine is thrown off again. Took a couple days off work to rest and recover. Hoping to be swinging that iron again tomorrow. Oh and side planks. I decided I should split time between side planks and normal planks. I already proved I could do normal planks years ago, might as well get good at something else.

yeah, git gud mang!

my chiropractor is fucking amazing, after one session yesterday he took me from "uh my IT band is on fire when I walk" to "lifting heavy weight pain-free"

deadlifts: 135 of Romanian DLs, then 135 and 225 of regular DLs for 5 to warmup. Then 265, 305, 355 for 5, 405 for 1.

overhead presses: bar for 5 to warm up, then 110, 130, 150, and 170 for 5, though JUST BARELY on that last one

squatz: 135 for 5 to warmup, then 235 and 295 for 5, then 350 for 2x5.

preacher curls: 90 lbs for 3x10, 7.

I wish my deadlifts went better BUT I was able to do a normal workout after mucho pain yesterday and that's worth celebrating!!!

@ryry: Side planks are rad! Get back on that kb, bro.

@uudd: Damn, your OHP is comin on strong, hoss.

Did some light Swiss OHP Monday night, followed by chins, ring pushups, front raises, face pulls, and neck work. Slowly and steadily rebuilding my pressing.

Did some grueling rugby training yesterday. Just tons and tons of sprinting and agility drills and stuff. But my bros were there, which always makes that easier.

Trap deads tonight. Hit 515 x 5. Used straps because of my healing finger, but they were full stop reps and were smooth. Did 5 fast triples at 430 for some volume, then GHR, neck, ab wheelies.

12 oz curls and hockey time now (GO PREDS!).

Hell of a bench, bro!!!

Thatís huge.

Meanwhile, I have cut it out of my program for now. Band resisted pushups are a replacement for now.

SSB today. Had a decent day, nothing special. Finished with breathing paused squats at 200#. Hereís one of them. I love/hate these so much.

Bought myself a present!

Upgraded my SSB to the Elitefts Yoke. The cheap one Iíd been using was starting to get more bend in it than I was comfortable with (and also making strange noises on heavy sets).

This new one sits higher on my back and has a way more pronounced camber. This translates to a significantly more difficult squat than even the other SSB! Going to adjust my training max until I get used to it.

Man, that 24 kg kettlebell does not want to cooperate. Been using the 45 pounder cause that last bout of sickness really took the wind out of my sails. Worked in the 24 kg bell a little bit today, but my grip strength is just not what it used to be.

Oh well. Guess I just gotta keep working at it.

BACK IN THE SADDLE ROWING THE IRON BOAT DOWN THE PATH OF STEEL

Squats and MotŲrhead this evening! 385 x 8 on the yoke. Iíll take it! Still feeing that the yoke is an order of magnitude harder than that other SSB I was using. Quads feeliní it hard.

Band resisted pushups, landmine press, t-bar rows, and facepulls.

Training *around* my shoulder pain, and not *through* it. Feels good

Well, I'm hoping I'm wrong, but I may have to take the week off of upper body stuff. I posted about my bike crash in the Body Movin' thread, but my shoulder blade is yelling at me, all day. I tried to clean and press the 35 pound kbell just to see where I'm at, and yeah, hurt like hell. Hopefully I recover quickly. I may just have to be a runner for a week.

Hope you are all feeling fit and stronk. Odin bless you beasts.

Will, if you could design a 45 minute stand-up routine based around active weight lifting during the set, that would be...amazing.

Good session on the yoke bar last night. Hit 400 x 6. Pleased with that considering I was still kinda beat up from a rugby 7s tournament Saturday.

The band pushups seem to be working out OK as a bench substitute so far. Shoulder feels fairly good.
