Thanks guys.

Saurday/Sunday

This was split over two days, as I ran out of time on Saturday. Squats were hard going, but my beltless strength is gradually rising. The rest was nothing to write home about. I guess being able to hold onto the bar for a few reps for rows with 115 is a step forward.

Beltless squats

70 x 5
70 x 5
100 x 3
120 x 3

Thanks, Mike

Wednesday

Good session tonight. I wanted to see how my grip would fare with a bit more weight. It was fine. 240 flew up with no problems. I think I would struggle to get much over 250 though.

Tried some strict press tonight, for the first time in a few months.


deadlifts

70 X 5

Thanks Malc.

Saturday

I'm only managing two sessions a week at the moment. Today was OK. Strength was really down on push press. This was probably because I didn't have much push in my legs after squatting. My squatting strength still seems to be going up on this 5-3-1 program, which is good considering it's only one top set per session.

Beltless squats

70 X 5
70 X 3
120 X 2
147.5 X 5

Nice squatting Tan from a fellow 5 3 1 er!!

Will be good to see how you do training twice per week. I see you squat and deadlift each week, I train 2 x per week but alternate squats with deads every Saturday, I think I recover better and feel fresher for each workout this way.

I'll re evaluate May /June next year and may try your way.

Also what's with the 6 reps back off sets, do you prefer these to 10's?

Hi Mikey

'My way' isn't really a planning method; everything is fitting around work and generally feeling f**ked at the moment. In theory, I go squat-squat-deadlift each week. Each time I do the squat routine, I rotate to the next one: 5,5,5 - 3,3,3 - 5,3,1. I'm not doing the deloads. I think the volume is very low and it's not a particularly demanding routine, so I don't see the need for them.

I was doing sets of ten just to give me a bit of cardio. But I'm such an unfit f**ker I can't even do those, so I upped the weight by 20% and reduced the reps. I do prefer them.

Wednesday

Absolutely knackered tonight. The deadlifts felt really heavy. I pushed myself on the 210kg set, though, and that 210 X 7, albeit with straps, is very pleasing.

after that, I only had energy for a few FatGripz chins.

Deadlifts

70 x 5
120 X 3
150 X 2
180 x 2
210 x 2
220 x 2
230 x 1
235 X 1
240 X 2 (straps)
210 X 7 (straps)

Fat Gripx assisted chins

About 5 X 5 with 40kg.

Sunday

Finally got into the gym today. The first thing I did was reach into my bag to get my Ironworks out. Immediate, debilitating shooting pain up my spine. Lay down for ten minutes. Sat on step to put trainers back on. Decided push press, beltless squats and bent over rows probably not a good idea. Went home and put frozen peas on back.

Getting squat shoes out of bag

1 X 1, to failure

Sitting with peas on back

4 X 15 minute sets

So anyway.

For months, I've either been ill, or injured, or ill or injured, or had too much work on. I've been into the gym maybe once a week on average, which hasn't been enough to keep my strength (or weight) up.

On the positive side, since the last time I did my journal, I've learned how to make an excellent chicken pie.

Here we go, poundages much reduced, but hey-ho. The only way is up.

Beltless squats

Warm ups
130 X 3
150 X 3
160 X 3
170 X 2
180 X 1

Beltless front squats

100 X 3
110 X 3
120 X 3

Barbell curls

50 X 5
50 X 5
50 X 5
50 X 5
