PostSubject: Lauren's Training Log   Mon Sep 21, 2015 10:23 pm

Starting a log to avoid Lorenzo’s wrath. Just kidding Lorenzo Smile No, I should’ve done this ages ago. But following the background information trend. I’m a third year undergrad here and I’ve been lifting seriously for almost a year (unless you want to count the few months where I didn’t deadlift and squatted 100 lbs to only parallel then it’d be a few months over a year) and have been with the club since spring of ’15. I competed in the Iron Battle on the Mississippi in Dubuque and went 215/99/237@123, kind of hoping to compete in 114 next experimentally and as to actually be at a weight where I’m somewhat lean.

Stats:
Height: 5’2 ½” (the ½ is very important lol)
Weight: 127

Gym PRs: 235/120/245
Meet PRs: 215/99/237

9/21/15

9/28/15
-Back squat
185 5x5 I played with my stance a lotttt today. Narrowed it out and it felt great with light weight, but I lost a lot of mobility and didn't like that. Settled on consciously focusing on keeping my knees out before I change anything with my stance since my squat progression and depth is more than fine right now. Edit* jokes, going to work on other stance too.
-Pause squat (above and below parallel)
133 5x3
-Normal back squat
89 1x7 - used Lorenzo's hip circle, these felt really beneficial to the knee caving thing. Will start incorporating band work in.
-Front squat
111 5x3
-OHP
67 2x5, because I'm super weak I had to go down to 63 to finish out with 3x5

10/3/15
Bench
100(83%) 3x5—following 2 failed sets of 105.  
Squats
190(80%) (1x5, 1x4, 1x5)—failed the fifth rep of the second set and had help on the fourth of the third.
170(72%) 2x5

As opposed to the 2nd, yesterday was a bad lift day, but I learned lots of things so that’s what’s important.

Also learned low bar positioning tonight as well and everything felt really good; there was like 45% on the bar, but the basic motions felt good regardless. Will start working with that more thoroughly after I retest my 1rm.

10/4/15

Bench
105(88%) 1x5, 1x4 (1x1) Failed last rep on the second set, followed with a single to finish out the set
100(83%) 2x4 (2x1) I failed the fifth reps on these too, finished out with single reps.
95(79%) 1x4, 1x5 Should get better. Alas, I failed the fifth rep here too. And finally was successful with the last set.

So in short, this was a mess, RPE over 9000, and I quit bench forever…until Wednesday. Deloading, obvs. I've clearly reached the end of this 5x5 capability.

Based on 250 (95%)
10/9/15

Deadlifts
80kg(70%) 5x2
7" block snatch grip deadlifts
67.5kg(60%) 3x12 - grip slipped on third set's last rep, but I pulled a 13th directly after to make up for it.
Knee Pulls
90kg(80%) 2x5, 3x3 - was supposed to do 5x5, finished out with 3x3 with conventional instead.
Shrugs
45kg 3x15
Band Goodmornings
2x25

Pulled mostly conventional for 90kg knee pulls because the left side of my hip started to bother me pretty badly, especially during cheater. (just realized the pull that must not be named corrects to cheater lol)

Pause Bench
75lbs 5x3
Wide grip bench

Bench felt really good today, squats not so much. 66% felt like 86%. Much needed light work for the body though.

10/12/15

Squats
65kg(60%) 5x5
Pause Squats (above and below parallel, 2 sec/each)
60kg 5x3
Front Squats
50kg 5x3

Pain in my hip seems to be getting better, but I'm going to keep working with 50-60% for another week to wait it out-this will also allow me time to really focus on some of my weaknesses with relatively light weight on the bar. Other than that, squats didn't feel too bad on the descent. About an 1" below parallel is a spot that's meh and speed out of the hole is uncomfortable, but it's all already a vast improvement from Fri 10/9.

10/16/15
Back squats
130(55%) 5x5
5 count pause squats
105(45%)/130(55%)/150(65%)x8
Dead squats with 30 second rest
110/130(55%)6x1 - I was supposed to do just 130, but I'm apparently incapable of checking what I have on the bar so I did this twice; I was wondering why 130 felt like 110.
Front squats
120 5x3

Squats felt good. Hip felt good. Today was good.
