Incline press

90 * 5, 5, 5, 5, 5.


110 * 5, 5, 5, 5, 5.

Strict press

80 * 3, 3, 3, 3, 3.

Standing db press

25 * 10, 10, 10

3 Trisets: pull ups/tricep pushdowns/cable curls.

First session back and it was really just a play. Still suffering with pain in my lower back and knees, so not ready to make a start on the new training programme.
I made sure to keep the pace very brisk and added the trisets to ensure my heart and lungs were made to do some work as well, conditioning needs to improve drastically before next season.

On an unrelated note, i also got engaged yesterday, so my wallet is now living in fear until the big day has come and gone, probably around Christmas time.

Congratutions. I'm quite a keen follower of this journal, good luck with your off-season.

I tend to always revert to using the black ones from strengthshop... Just seem about right to me.

I saw those, 20" or 41"?

I started this today.
Quick question, what bands should I get? I'm going to invest in some to do reverse band work instead of chains.

Back at it.
Going to try CBP from AMHPower.

Pin Press - the bar was basically touching my chest.

70 x 5
100 x 5
110 x 5
120 x 5
130 x 5 RPE 8
117.5 x 5. 4 sets.

Strict press
60 x 8
65 x 8 (endurance was awful, grinding the 8th)
60 x 8

Close grip floor press
80 x 8
100 x 8
90 x 8 - I was feeling weaker and weaker as the session progressed and at this point I called it a day and went to throw up. Still not 100% but strength isn't down really, just endurance.

Done. Not a bad start.

This may require a team effort.

I've just got hold of 6 beer kegs, I'm looking for advice of what to fill them with the make them different weights. What have people have success with in the past?

Rack lockout:
1x260kg (time measured to meet the force demand; 1.76sec; poor. next week will see the start of my explosive phase, and the same test will be done in 4 weeks, showing the same force application is faster; and thus I am more powerful.

This fascinates me. It makes sense to me as well. I have a lot of time for your approach for training, your mantra of 'simple training with complex understanding' hit the nail on the head for me.

Haven't trained since last Wednesday. I'm not well with something, feels flu-like but not full blown yet. Everything aches and I can't stay awake. Not what I wanted with a competition coming up Saturday. I'll give it my best and we'll see come the day.
» Component Based Periodization (Go to post)02-09-2015 @ 14:38 
Excellent, thanks for the reply. I'm much better off the floor than at lockout so I'll do block pulls.
I was thinking of doing four days a week with the fourth day being pressing again, but with the RPE sets done via overhead pin presses.
I'll let you know how I get on with all of it. Thanks again.

I'm going to give this a go in a couple of weeks when I've got my competition out of the way. Just a couple of questions.
Regarding the starting strength movements, what would you use for deadlift? Is that not a starting strength movement in itself?
Also, there's no way I'll be able to use reverse bands, so I'll use chains for squat and deadlift, but would a slingshot work for the bench press? I imagine that it would work in a similar way to reverse bands by allowing overload, particularly at lockout.
Thanks for all this great stuff you make available to everyone.

Single arm cable row (don't have Dumbbells heavy enough)

Reminds me of a friend of mine who wanted to bulk up, when told he had to eat big said "I do eat a lot, I had a whole bag of peanut m and m's for dinner last night."

People really have no idea on eating. It's the same as people I know who claim to eat clean and can't understand why they're losing weight. It's difficult explaining to people that salad does not counter act the kebab that it's on.
