Conjugate W15D1

Max Effort Lower

Pause Squats:
>Warm up (everything was deep with long pauses)
>Max @ 330lbs
>3x5 @ 250lbs (with long pauses. DED)

Did some weighted lunges to do work on my bad hips. substituted weight for lack of distance.
>2 x 10 yards out and 10 yards back w/ 50kg

will be at the training session tonight as well so I can get more work done.

Training session:
>Low Bar: 3x5 @ 220 (get the motor pattern down since I changed my stance)
>RDL: 3x15 @ 205
>Snatch Grip Deds: 3x5 @ 176lbs (will go down to sets of 3 per Nels advice)
>Pause Deds: 6x1 @ 290?

Conjugate W15D2

Max Effort Upper

Comp Bench heavy double:
>Warm up
>198 x 2 (x) (failed second rep, spotter bumped through sticking, first rep felt REALLY GOOD)
>192.5 x 2 (still had a rough time with the second rep still PR double bounce )
>3x5 @ 154

So I found that upon reaching the top of my first rep I loose tightness in my lats or something like that. I tend to over-extend at the top of the movement so I need to be mindful of this moving forward. If I didn't loose tightness I probably would've gotten the second rep at 198 (which is my current bench max).

Accessories:
>Feet up narrow grip: 3x10 @ 132 (felt easy, will increase)
>Bent over rows: 3x10 @ 132 (felt pretty easy, only did one grip style with this
>Incline: 3x5 @ 132 (did 7 on third set)

overall had a good session and felt really good on bench today. weird.

Conjugate W15D3

Dynamic Lower

Squat:
>Warm up
>8x2 @ 300

these felt OKAY. speed was also OKAY.

DL:
>Warm up
>3x1 @ 365

So I was having some of the continuing pain in my hip and it really wasn't too big of a deal until my last two squat sets. During Deadlifts I was having some very dull almost not noticeable pain running from the top of my hammy down to my knee. Not an issue since it's so small. I am going to do a deload whether I like it or not. If I take a light deload week I can take some strain off my ailments and work on rehab and mobility. I also haven't deloaded since around May. Shocked

Conjugate W16D1

Max Lower

Conventional block pulls:
>Warm up
>407 (previous best)
>Max @ 215kg (473lbs) bounce
>3x5 @ 165kg (363lbs)

these felt excellent. no pain or annoyances. little upper back rounding but nothing to be concerned about.

Accessories:
>RDL: 3x8 @ 90kg

It took me an hour and a half to work up to a heavy single. overall a very successful session.

Conjugate W16D2

Max Upper

Narrow Grip:
>Warm up
>Max @ 185
>200 (x)
>3x5 @ 150 (5,4,4)

Swam to fitness east, had to rush through workout, bros were posing, fitness east bench is less than stellar, hungry. 200 wasn't there today cuz of a lot of outside distractions. Speed off the chest was real dank today. 200 went up super fast but just died on the lockout. I probably could've pushed through, but didn't.

Accessories:
>Comp Bench: 3x3 @ 135 (beat and not overly motivated at this point)
>Low Row Machine: 4x8 @ 180

Conjugate W16D3

Dynamic Lower

Pause Squats:
>Warm up
>12x2 @ 250 (~75%)
>3x1 @ 295 (90%)

experimenting with small overloads on dynamic lower days. vid shows last single and it still kept great speed and form.

(didn't do dynamic DL cuz I squatted for an hour and a half)

Hamstring curls:
>3x12 @ 10 (machine @ magni)

deaload really helped. nothing was bothering me during squats today. i think i nailed my setup and stance (slightly narrower than before, more comfortable).

10/10 want to squat more.

Conjugate W18D3

Dynamic Lower

Pause Squats:
>Warm up

DL:
>Warm up
>315x5, 1

didn't have time for a buncha singles so I just did a quick set of 5.

Meet Prep W1D1

Squats:
>Warm up
>300x5 (top set)
>5x5 @ 265

3 planks. 50sec-1min each

I think i fixed the issue with my bar position by bringing my grip in fairly close. squats felt great today. Last time I did texas method I couldn't do 265 for a 5x5 even without a top set before. me happy.



I will finish the workout at the training session later

Training Sesh:

hi-bar squats:
>4x8 @ 110kg (242lbs)

hip thrusters (glute bridge things):
>3x10 @ 80kg (176lbs)

Meet Prep W1D2

Close Grip Bench:
>warm up
>4x8 @ 140 (70%)

that was not fun.

Tricep push downs:
>3x12 @ 72lbs

DB incline:
>3x8 @ 35 (didn't really feel it in my chest, triceps were dead so i really couldn't do more, incline height may have been off as well)

Lat Pulldown:
>3x8 @ 120

Machine preacher curls:
>3x8 @ 100 (could only do partial range of motion since I couldn't adjust the machine and apparently my forearms are longer than normal)

lost feeling in my arms from the pump.

again, these felt better than before. work capacity going up.

high bar: 3x8 @ 185
