    Hey, it's King Schlong from the old SV forum! How's life?

    Ha! I'm surprised anyone recognized that. JP changed my username like three years ago! I haven't been over there in ages - last time I got redirected to a porn site. Not sure if he had legal troubles or what. I miss the heyday of StrengthVillain.

    As for me, life is good. Busy, but good. I bought a house and have a son now so I only train on lunch when I get a chance. The project cars are all gone. You?

    Press: hit 135x5 and my right shoulder wasn't having it. I'm moving my lifts around and didn't leave enough time to recover from the volume-fest on Friday.

    14Oct14 - weighing 188
    Squat: 45x10,5,5,5, 135x5,5,5,5, 225x5, 275x3, 315, 365, 315x2,3,4,5

    Still working on the "hands-free" low bar position. 365 was easy and fast. If my shoulder holds out, I'll hopefully get back over 400 for reps soon.

    Sumo: 475x3x3, touch and go
    Conventional: 405x5, touch and go
    alternating
    Chins: (+25x7)x8

    Moving lifts around in the schedule. AC joint is in bad shape so no pressing yesterday, or really at all this week. Deadlift volume is hard. I'd rather try for 475x9 then go 3x3 again.

    AC joint is very irritated still, so no pressing today.
    Biceos curls and triceps pull-overs

    21Oct14
    Squat: 315x5,1,2,3,4,5

    27Oct14
    Neutral grip pull-ups: 1,2,3,4,5, +25x5,5, +50x5, +75x5, +100x3
    Triceps pull-overs: 65x10, 95x10, 115x10, 135x10
    -alternating-
    EZ bar curls: 45x10, 65x10, 95x10,10,10
    100 banded triceps push-downs, biceps curls and pull-aparts

    AC joint is still very bothered. It may in fact be a SLAP tear. No pressing today, again.

    Squat: 135x5,5,5, 225x5,5 275x3, 315 paused, 345x3, 315x3x3
    2x 30 second wingate sprints.

    So, Wingates suck. My quads were both huge and no longer contributing to locomotion when I finished. I could use both some conditioning and quad hypertrophy though, so they'll definitely stay in the mix.

    Sumo: 135X8,8,8, 225X5,5, 315X3, 365X3, 425, 485, 525, 495, 405X2
    3X 30 second Wingate sprints with 3:00 no-load pedalling as rest.
    45 minutes in and out

    Planned on a 525 triple but drank too much and ate and slept too little last night. 525 felt VERY heavy.

    Oh yea, the site was a lot of fun and at the time was much more helpful for me than this one was. Seems like JP's doing okay for himself with his self-improvement material, but the site's not really my cup of tea anymore.

    Good to see life's treating you well. Any plans on bringing the cars back after everything stabilizes a bit?

    Holy pump!

    Insane quad pumps from the cycling. Forgot my lifting shoes and had to squat in my super comfy (spongy) work shoes. Really unstable. All squat work with warm-ups was under 30 minutes. 45 minutes total.

    Snatch grip deadlift from 5" blocks : 365x5x5
    alternating
    Neutral grip chin ups: 1,2,3,4,5,5, +25x5,5, +60x5,5,5, +50x5,5

    Trying out a cube method program Lilly posted for the deadlift. I don't know how I feel about the snatch grip deadlifts. From the floor, they definitely hit the hamstrings hard. However, when you do them elevated, you're basically doing a light weight, limited ROM standard pull. Putting the bar up off the floor puts my back in roughly the same starting position as a conventional pull from the floor. Maybe I'm missing something?

    Last week was crazy at work and, since I lift on my lunch breaks, I had to prioritize the work. Daylight savings time hit me hard this year, too. Oh well. Back to it.

    Lower back is still a little off after monday' snatch grip deadlifts. No energy today but I got it done. Went back to GOMAD yesterday, for the first time in years. I forgot how uncomfortable it is.
