Two sessions to post:

Sunday:

Push press with thick bar:

8x35kg - some of these were split jerks
5x56kg - these were all split jerks
5x76kg - first 2 were split jerks and the other 3 push presses
3x2x96kg - 1st set off balance, second set very good, third set hard.
1x96kg, no second rep
6x76kg, pump set

15x30kg with the 8inch log. Back sore at this point.

The doubles at 96kg were pbs - I have never pressed more than 90kg on the thick bar. It is considerably harder than a normal oly bar on account of it not flexing at all, and being far harder on the wrists.

Right, I am going to have to take some time off push pressing. Infact, any kind of standing press is really f**king sore. So for at least the next 6 weeks I will stick to seated shoulder press. This is annoying for me, but that vertabrae is damn sore. It just hurts when my back is in hyperextention.


Today's session:

Start of a new routine. I shall post the routine later this evening, or tomorrow morning. It is similar to 5x5 but with 6's instead of 5's. It is my way of paying homage to both the principle of 5x5 and the Templehall method.

It is much higher in volume than previous routines, but I think that this is good, as my volume has been on the low side for some time, and more lifting usually stimulates my appetite


Paused squats (a proper 2sec pause, not a Sugden pause Tongue ):

5x50kg
3x80kg
5x3x100kg - niiiice - easy and it felt good to control it and sit around at the bottom for a while. Much easier than last time I tried these (6-8months ago).


Seated shoulder press:

6x40kg
6x55kg
4x6x65kg - easy

18 inch deadlift. Now I had not planned to do this, but I was sorely tempted as Brian was doing them. No pain this time (as I had last time) and it felt good!

4x100kg
2x140kg
2x160kg
4x2x180kg - easy fast pulls


Tubby bas***d chins

4x4xbodyweight


Thick handle dumbell static holds

30kg x 10sec each hand.
50kg - left - 12sec, 15sec, 10sec. Right - 20sec, 15sec, 10sec.


Strange back rehab thing

This is basically me lying on the floor with my feet up on a bench, and then lifting my ass (no mean feat!) off the ground until my body is straight.

3x20xbodyweight - might add weight next week.


Planks

2x1min - bit painful on dodgy vertabrae - won't do them again.

All the above was just over 2hours - pretty speedy really!

Nice thick bar pressing mate.

Unsure what that back rehab thing you're describing is - sounds a bit like a hamstring bridge?

Thanks Rob - thick bar presses are brutal!

Regarding the back rehab thing, I have no idea what it is, but it feels nice Grin

With regards to the planks - have you tried sideways ones (if the normal ones give your back trouble?)

I haven't actually - I might give them a go!

This is the new routine that I am going to be following for the next 6 weeks. It is more of a volume routine than any I have done before, but I still hope to make some new maxes at the end of it.

18 inch Deadlift:

4x2x180kg, 4x2x185kg, 4x2x190kg, 3x2x195kg, 3x2x200kg, 3x2x205kg


Then followed by random chins, grip work and core work too.


Friday:


Squat:

5x6x115kg, 5x6x120kg, 5x6x125kg, 4x6x130kg, 4x6x135kg, 4x6x140kg

4x8x65kg for the first three weeks then 4x8x70kg for the second three weeks.


Sunday:


Medium narrow grip bench

4x6x85kg, 4x6x90kg, 4x6x95kg, 3x6x100kg, 3x6x105kg, 3x6x110kg


Bent over barbell rows:

Diesel side bends:

3x8x each side with 20kg bar


Glute bridge for back rehab

3x20xbw


Crunchs

Just bodyweight stuff on flat bench.


Grip work

Pinch gripping, thick handle dumbell work and finger/wrist curls.


I am really looking forward to the routine Grin

I think that I forgot to post Tuesday's workout, but it all went to plan.

Had to train today on account of working tomorrow night.

Ah it was a hard session today. Not the weights, but just a general off-feeling. Felt sluggish and lacking in energy. Later in the session I felt a bit sick, but a trip to the bathroom soon cleared that Grin

Squat:

6x20kg
6x60kg
6x90kg
5x6x115kg - not hard, but nasty


Bench:

6x60kg
6x90kg
4x6x107.5kg - again, slow, fairly tough and sluggish


Dumbell bent over row:

6x35kg
4x8x65kg - a bit too light really. I'll step it up to 70kg next week.

Totally fried now!

hey mate! I see you squat a lot and seem to have light and heavy days with a rather low tonnage, am i right? I also remember you said it was your week point. Is it still that week to you? How would you judge your form and its progression if asked to? There was that day when you power snatched some good weights, top stuff btw; was it a first time? How did you feel, form and cardio wise? Anyway, good stuff overall, well impressed.

cheers

Oh by the way, thats some classy name your parents gave youWink

Olly - just a lazy f**ker - I just post it on veganfitness these days!

Mishma - the last log entry was the first of a new routine so the weights were low. I am on my max out week this week, and last week squatted 2x6x140kg and bench 6x120kg. I got a 250kg 18 inch deadlift day before yesterday too Grin
