    Cycle 5 - Week Three reps/sets

    LBS - 130kg *7
    LBS - 115kg 7*2
    Tempo Pause Squats - 100kg 6*3
    Tempo2Tempo BSS - 12kg 10*3
    Wide Grip Pulldowns - 120lbs 15*3
    Leg Lifts - 20*3

    Had my first 6 month Cancer check up today...what a rollercoaster of emotions waiting for blood test results!!!

    Anyway, i was a little drained coming into tonight's session, but I got the work done, and easily too. The conditioning aspects are still a work in progress but the strength is not an issue at the moment.

    Doc's say I'm still three months or so away from being 100% back (i.e. the after effects of the radiation and hormone treatments should be out of my system).

    Oh, and the PSA results were almost undetectable. Gymdad lives to lift another day / month / year...infinity and beyond!

    11/4/20

    Cycle 5 - Week Three reps/sets

    Bench - 80kg *8
    Paused Bench - 72.5kg 7*2
    Spoto - 82.5kg 5*3

    Dumbbell Bench - 70lbs *10/8/7
    Dumbbell Press - 35lbs 12*3
    Dumbbell Incline Bench - 60lbs 6*3

    Forgot where I was on the top set, and did an extra rep...and I had another grindy one in me (maybe two).

    We're close to PR territory here folks!!!

    The dumbbell work at 70lbs was too much of a jump from 60lbs, and it killed the rest of the session. But the work with the bar was what counted.

    My goal for the meet in January is to FINALLY HIT 100kg IN A COMPETITION...I WILL HAVE IT!

    11/5/20

    Cycle 5 - Week Three reps/sets

    Dead - 177.5kg *7
    Dead - 155kg 7*2
    RDLs - 140kg 10*3

    Kroc Rows - 70lbs 12*3
    Cable Revs Fly - #4 15*3
    Palof Holds #9 30 sec *3

    Wow...

    Top set felt great, lot's left in the tank. I'm pretty close to a dead stop rep PR too.

    And that puts an end to a nice weeks work, as good as any I've put in - regardless of health.

    11/7/20

    SBD Saturday

    LBS - 110kg *7 / 7 / 4
    Paused Bench - 72.5kg 7*3
    Mid Shin Paused Dead - 155kg 3*3

    Picked up a nick in my right Quad, just above the knee...WTF I don't have quads!

    Anyway it made the rest of the session interesting. At least I know I'm using my Quads on Squats and with leg drive on the Bench.

    We'll see how if feels tomorrow...

    11/9/20

    Cycle 5 - Week Four reps/sets

    LBS - 135kg *4...BOOM...session over!

    Yeah, we got greedy and pushed for a set that shouldn't have been attempted with that wonky Quad.

    Everything was fine...until it wasn't. Coming up out the hole, and it felt like if you knit your finger together and then pull them apart...a very distinctive sensation. No pain fortunately, so it can't be too bad.

    Was able to Squat, unweighted, to a 20 inch box without issue. Tried to load a bar with 50kg, and that was too much. So we settled for empty bar work to to get some blood in the area.

    Ah well, I was due for a de-load next week anyway. Though I would have loved to have been able to grab some legit PRs for the first time in a year.

    What about trying the Starr Rehab method? Hope all goes well.

    I'll be doing something close to that protocol, but not the exact thing.
