If you want to focus on whole foods (good idea imo) then chocolate milk and a banana sounds pretty much spot on for macro and micro nutrients.
» 2016 goals (Go to post)07-12-2015 @ 23:21 
One of my big goals is to actually prioritise my training over other things in life.

Other than that the usual

Squat 250
Bench 180
Deadlift 300

Billytheold said:I'm trying to get some extra light squats in. Always got sore legs. Is that the only way to get that zing in them?

My legs tend to get more zing when they're rested tbh, I suppose that's a result of my squatting style placing more stress than needed on my quad tendons...

For most people though, that's what they say isn't it? More Squats = Better Squats. Hard for me to say that at the moment though.

Press Day

Press 75kg x 5, 5, 5, 5

Then some other stuff, but I was pretty knackered from Squats yesterday

And you have to take Greens scalp.

You know Tom does offer coaching at a very reasonable price. I'm sure he'd accommodate you. You could pick his brains as often as you like, every day even.

Done a few workouts since the last one but nothing of note, mostly going light to give the quad tendons a rest. They're actually feeling pretty rested now so I'm probably just going to forge ahead into the latter parts of the cycle.

Today was a good one though.

Bench Day!

Bench Press - 125kg x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 14

So that's 5x5 and an AMRAP with 14. Completely bossed it. Nice fast reps too.

Then did a bunch of chest.

Cheers for the reply Faz! Some interesting ideas there and given me some stuff to think about!
Yes your right, the evidence does point towards multiple times a week on the big 3, and all the best seem to do it.
I have toyed with once a week training for the big lifts due to niggles cropping up and also feeling a bit over trained, but may play around with volume/intensity on them
I think I'll go do something like...
Squat volume (linear progression)
Bench volume (linear progression)
Deads - top set or 3x3 @ around 80%
Squat - doubles at around 85%
Bench - as above
(I have also contemplated doing a variation on theses lifts like you mentioned, for recovery purposes so may work up to a max 5 or 3 on high bar belt less and cgbp)
And continue that until I'm near the comp I'm doing in May (gbpf) and then go into a 10 week peaking cycle
It's playing on my mind that I'm not working in the higher %'s enough too, and need to be pushing 3&5rm's more often but very wary of injuries.
Thanks for exchanging thoughts on training, it's good to have a ramble and put ideas out there with like minded lifters! Keep the journal updates going, it'll be interesting to see how you get on!

Always a pleasure to talk training with you Robbo.

I like the plan, it's the same basic layout as some of the Sheiko templates but with your own twist on the sets/reps. Yeah I think that will work.

In regards to variations; if you get the time you can just work them in after. So on Friday for example get the Squat doubles out of the way quicksharp and do a few High Bar Paused triples.

Personally I don't really enjoy going into the heavy %s much anymore. I like to hit them when I'm fresh but for example recently I hit a 260kg pull and I never lifted a weight over 220 leading upto that. I just don't like to beat my body up with staying at 85%+ for any period of time. I think as long as you can get under the bar, brace yourself properly and not s**t yourself you'll be fine.

He is a -83 with a 160kg bench. He could be wrong, but I doubt it.

I'm talking about you though and what's appropriate for you. With a 115kg Bench I'd have other priorities to worry about.

Less ROM, a friend of mine said my arch is to small.

I think with your stats you're barking up the wrong tree mate.

No but strength in general is very specific.

If you start with the "real world strength" angle then you very quickly run into Functional/Crossfit strength and then Sugden might implode.
