Yeah I will make sure I take my time in setting up and don't just unpack and drop down next time. I know my strength is down a tad from losing a little weight recently. 260 wasn't hard but it was about the point where it started feeling heavy. I always hit a stick spot once I get out of the hole on the front squat. That's where you see it slow down a bit.

Honestly, the slow down wasn't that bad--it's a heavy (well, relatively, we ain't Derek Kendall here) front squat, and you should slow down. I think you can just keep working and you'll be fine--just always be cognizant of your technique, is all. You've been doing some good things recently in your training.

2/2/2014

shoulder prehab

press
bx10
65x5
85x5
105x3
120x5
140x3
155x3

band pull aparts
a bunch x20

DB OH press
x12, x8, x6
x20, x12, x8 (20 deep breaths between these three)

Kroc Rows w/ straps
100sx20

superset
band pushdowns 3x40
band curls 3x40

Notes: Pretty poor day. I wasn't feeling the best and definitely was not hitting on all cylinders. Everything was slow and just not working very well together while pressing today, I definitely felt off. I pretty much just finished up my assistance work and got out of there after that. Thinking about what to do with my training and I think I will try squatting and maybe some light pulling this week. If it goes well I will start a new cycle next week with all lifts. I will run the same numbers as I did this cycle for BP, OHP, and FS as I didn't feel awesome about this last one. I'm at a point where I'm not trying to prep for a meet and I'm trying to drop some Bodyfat, so there is really no reason to push the numbers right now. Hopefully all goes well this week and I can be back full speed by next week.

2/3

agile 8

deadlift
135x10 stiff leg
225x5
275x3
325x2

front squat
135x5
175x3
190x5
215x3
240x3

hypers w/ band
3x15

lying leg raise
4x12

prowler
ladder

Notes: Gave deadlifting a shot today and it went well. I basically wanted to just work up to something around 315-325 to see how it felt and there was no pain. I could tell that I haven't deadlifted for awhile though. Low back didn't hurt it just felt weak, and mechanically was a little off. I will probably start my training maxes for squat and deadlift low and adjust as needed. Front squats went okay, I used straps instead of just holding the bear in the rack position on the 240 set. I'm still getting pulled forward, if I have time to put up the video you can see it pretty clearly. Prowler gave me a whoopin tonight.

From yesterday:

2/4

shoulder prehab

bench press
bx10
95x5
135x5
165x3
190x5
215x3
240x5
190x12, 6, 5 w/ 20 deep breaths between sets

band pull aparts
lotsx20

dips
+45x5
+70x5
+90x6

pullups (dead hang)
x10, 7, 6

tris 3x12
bis 3x15

Notes: Okay bench session yesterday. Not good by any means but I can settle for okay strength levels right now. I could get a lot more quality reps in if I could learn to keep my arch and not flatten out so much, so that still needs work. Was fun to push the dips a bit, might stick with this trend or work on rotating heavy dips in every couple weeks.

I have that exact same problem on bench. Best solution seems to be to just do singles all the time.

It's no wonder my 1RM usually outpaces my rep work on bench.

2/6

agile 8

squat
bx10
135x5
185x5
225x3
275x2

lunges w/ plate overhead
3x10

GHRs w/ mini band
3x10

lying leg raise
4x10

row machine w/ intervals

Notes: Today was basically about feeling around squatting, and there was no pain which is awesome. So it looks like next week I will be back to full speed. I'm going to start my squat and deadlift training maxes pretty low and rerun the last cycle for bench and OHP. Still trying to lower the body fat, so as I have mentioned before I'm not really pushing the strength levels as of right now. I'm pretty excited to be doing all lifts again.

That is great news man. Im glad to hear your back is feeling better. Ease into the full speed next week; take your time on warm ups and hit them smooth and fast. Dont be discouraged if pain comes back though because you have already made it this far

2/11

agile 8

deadlift
135x10 stiff leg
225x10
275x3
295x5
345x5
385x6

front squat
170x5
195x5
220x5

hypers w/ bands
3x10

abs
3x10

Notes: First real deadlift session in a long while. Not really any pain but I fatigued very quickly. I'm banking on that going away as I start deadlifting and back squatting more. I did tweak my right side a bit on the 345 set, but I rolled around on a tennis ball a bit before the 385 set and it didn't bother me. I was nervous when deadlifting, very cautious. Really focused on not starting with my hips so high and keeping a bit wider stance than before.

195x5
220x8

banded face pulls
some

dips
3x15

pull ups

Notes: An okay session. Really should have got more out of bench with how the first couple reps felt, but once again I flattened out pretty terribly. I will say that setting up today felt the best it has in a long time.

Dudes and dudettes, it's been awhile.

In short, training has been going pretty well.  I'm prepping for the UPA Battle on the Mississippi in July.  I hit a 300 paused bench a bit ago, am going to be squatting in wraps at this meet, and seem to have  been staying somewhat healthy (knock on wood).  I'm going to try to start logging my training on here again.

From yesterday:

bench press
warm ups
245x4x3

lying bb tri ext
6x10

t-bar rows
3x10

pushdowns
3x15

one arm db press
3x15

Notes: Pretty good session.  Bench has been feeling decent, I need to continue to practice keeping my touch on the chest as light as possible.

Go for broke, maybe. Would have to be something like 450-300-550. This is possible, but it would be everything going right and how often does that ever happen?
