    Default OH-Pushups

    • wichita falls texas june seminar date
    • woodmere new york july seminar date
    • las vegas nevada august seminar
    OHP: 45x10, 50x5, 55x3, 60x2
    work: 62.5x5, 72.5x5, 77.5x5
    backoff: 62.5x8, 45x13

    Pushups: 6, 8, 6, 5, 6 -- I was scheduled for 6, 7+ on the last two sets. I think it's a reasonable expectation for Pushups to suck ass after even a light OHP session. I'll see how they go on Saturday. If I can continue with the progression on Saturday, which would be 10, 12, 8, 8, 12+, then I'll move on to week 2 and expect Thursday's pushups to be ass-sucking.

    I've been doing pushups at home on my off days in sets of 10 or 20 (if possible).

    ManBoob power!

    I'm going to follow this for a month: Welcome to the one hundred push ups training program

    I don't care about 100 pushups -- that just seems dumb -- but I'd like to be able to do a shitload of them and have each one seem fairly light.

    Default Squat Singles / Deadlift

    5 /3 / 1 calls for Squatting once a week. That's not enough for me, for a few reasons...

    1. I fucking love squatting
    2. I don't want to get rusty
    3. I am allergic to being a pussy


    I decided to add progression of singles before Friday's deadlifts. That will give me till Tuesday to recover anyhow.

    Squat: 45x10, 135x5, 185x3, 225x2
    work: 240x1, 250x1, 260x1. Planning to add 5 pounds per week to these.

    DL: 135x5x2, 165x5, 195x3, 225x1
    work: 240x5, 255x5, 270x5. Felt pretty good. I haven't done three sets of five DL's at any weight since the baby days of like 135 or so. It was fun. I felt my grip fading @ 240 so I chalked for 255 & 270. All hooker style.

    set 1: https://youtu.be/n0Jl3bwdOXc
    set 2: https://youtu.be/7Hv9oICZMUQ?t=19s
    set 3: https://youtu.be/p8xK_XZa-oU?t=13s

    Looking at those, I'm not so happy with them. There's a lot of movement before I pull and it looks like I'm dropping my hips not raising my chest. Fuckers.

    SGDL: 185x5x3. This is a real gripfucker too. With a hook grip, it kills the thumb. Without a hook grip, it's hard to keep it from slipping. I think it's awesome.

    Default Squat and Splitting Headache == fuck

    6/30 5 / 3 / 1 Wave B

    Squats: 45x10, 95x5, 135x3, 185x2, 205x1
    work: 220x5, 230x5, 245x1, 245x3.
    backoff: 205x8, 135x8, 135x5

    This was bad news. I couldn't seem to get the bar centered properly -- kept feeling off one way or the other. I realized that this particular shitty bar has no center knurl, unlike most of the other ones in the gym. On 245, it was so fucked that it wrapped off the rails on rep 1 so I re-racked it and did a triple. On the 205x8 backoffs, it must have still been wrong or wrong differently because coming up on rep 8 I got a sudden excruciating tension headache -- like being struck by lightning or something. I broke the 135x13 into an 8 and a 5 to keep it from hurting too much but it fucking kills now. In the shower I could feel some tension in my right trap. The bar marks are lower then normal on my delts. I never had the fucking thing right all day, that must be what the splitting headache is from -- keeping the bar centered with my neck and shoulders instead of having it rest there properly.

    Ouch. Advil, but that won't help -- just gotta get through it. I bet my neck is tweaked as fuck tomorrow morning.

    Sorry to hear you got a tension headache from the lifting today. Still, like Peez said, you did do the Squats. That's always something.
