Despite being hungover this training session was fun and glad I did it. I need to incorporate a lot more accessory work as well as it's all productive.

Enjoying the double overhand and axle training I see. It's definitely a good test of grip.

Are you managing to maintain swoleness with lowish reps?

My gut is getting swole, but I'm not sure that's related to rep schemes.

Yes, I enjoy DOHG axle deadlifting and axle training in general very much. Excited about returning to overhead pressing on a regular bar and the log press. Expecting PB's. It may not be contributed solely to the strict axle press, more so to the consistency of regularly pressing.

My plan of higher reps hasn't been working out well recently, hah. Although I have been aiming to increase personal bests and will do the odd speed/higher rep sessions once strength/technique with new exercises has been established and improved. My training and diet has been under par recently.


Any updates to your training log, over the flu? How's the back? Reading through it, opposite to my style you are going for high reps. No wonder you tire out quickly. If I start a training session with high rep squats I am quite beat up for the rest of it.

Weeman.

I am indeed going for high-rep stuff at the mo. Mostly because I'm at the start of a new training cycle and I'm treating it as if I were almost untrained - which I was, as I hadn't squatted, or benched for quite a while or deadlifted anything more than about 45kg for ages until recently. The aim at the mo is to add some muscle mass, condition myself for heavier lifting, build strength whilst also doing high-reps to improve overall conditioning - and not totally f*&k myself up before even trying to pick up a heavy weight.

I have a suspicion that i may have a slightly bulging/damaged disc in lower back, but not sure. I often get a sort of throbbing sensation (bottom right of spine) and it kicks off if I round my back. However, I don't actually have any debilitating symptoms 99% of the time and I'm able to deadlift fine as long as I maintain a straight back. I feel that deadlifting without a belt is the right way to go for now to help build muscle in that area. I should probably get an MRI and I would if it was easy to arrange.

I have discovered that double-overhand is good for forearm development, which is nice.

Could you perhaps go to A&E and claim you have suddenly injured yourself whilst weightlifting, state you have shooting back pain with reduced mobility and they would carry out imaging to rule out spinal damage. You would likely be triaged to a low priority as you are stable. The waiting time would be long for you but would be worth it.

Beltless work is a good plan. When squatting I only put a belt on when I go 130kg+ and when deadlifting I only use a belt when I go 185kg+. Build a 'natural belt' first.

Yeah, since DOHG with the axle my forearms are more developed.

Indeed, although it's nothing extraordinary as the numerous PB's are because the exercises are new to me. I could increase the progression a lot quicker but long-term progress is the key and training efficiently.

Instead of going for a max attempt, I will develop steadily so by the time I get to my current hypothetical max I will be doing it for multiple reps. Training is more fun this way with more incentives to train as I look forward to PB's most sessions.

Same plan as mine. Longer term goals, split into 8-12 week blocks. I aim to NOT fail reps in the gym.

Agreed, maxing out in the gym is a waste of energy. Rather be conservative for better recovery thus more regular training.

Although, it is good to fail reps at times in order to lose our fear; that failing a rep is not a big deal and weight can be ditched safely. This way we will be more encouraged to aim for greater feats.

Do you reckon I could actually get away with taking myself into A and E and get an MRI/EX-ray?

They only cover accidents and emergencies like the name suggests so you will have to say the injury had just happened/recently been aggravated. If you are prepared to wait a long time as a lower priority in the triage system, go for it. I can't guarantee success but a GP referral for a long-term sporting injury would be a more difficult route to take and the GP wouldn't be very accommodating to that.

Alternatively, pay privately:

Your ability to physically perform is important for your long term health and mental health. It's really important to get your back sorted so I would do all I can to get mended asap in your position.
Rule out damage to the vertebrae and it will help bolster your confidence.
