    Default Week 2, Workout 3

    Friday, 14. September 2018

    Squat: 3x5 @ 80 kg (176 lbs)
    The Press (seated): 3x5 @ 37,5 kg (83 lbs)
    Deadlift: 1x5 @ 105 kg (231 lbs)

    Comments: Squats felt heavy. I will start adding 2,5 kg to Squats from next workout. Also I need to start thinking "hip drive" as que. I did it on my last set and it felt much easier. Also the belt will go on for Squats, starting next workout.
    The Press was seated today. I moved to a new place and the ceiling is so low, that I can not press overhead when standing. I discovered this when already starting to warm up for the Press with an empty barbell, which barely touched the ceiling. Oh, well. From here on my Presses overhead will be performed while seated. It seems to be the closest movement to the actual Press.

    Good choice on the belt and the music, ha!

    I find I feel stronger when I listen to Sabaton and Powerwolf.

    Default Week 3, Workout 2

    Wednesday, 19. September 2018

    Squat: 3x5 @ 85 kg (187 lbs)
    The Press (seated): 3x5 @ 40 kg (88 lbs)
    Deadlift: 1x5 @ 115 kg (254 lbs)

    1) Nutrition.
    I put my nutrition plan in place finally. Nothing extraordinary. I eat 95% self-made meals (exceptions are get-togethers and parties). Food choices are healthy. Approximately 4500 cal/day. Close to 150g fat, over 500g carbs, approx 250g protein.
    At my bodyweight (started 81 kg or 179 lbs, now 83 kg or 183 lbs) I should start growing pretty fast. I don't mind gaining 30lbs. I believe it is realistic to gain approximately a pound per week for 4 months on this diet. I will keep you informed.
    2) Workout.
    Felt good and strong. I started using belt on The Press, because I can not engage my glutes and hamstrings while seated. Gives extra steadyness and support for back. Otherwise it is easy to flex my lower back too much when pressing seated.

    You left out Chevelle and Breaking Benjamin. Between these 5, there is no need for any other music.

    Default Week 3, Workout 3

    Friday, 21. September 2018

    Squat: 3x5 @ 87,5 kg (193 lbs)
    Bench Press: 3x5 @ 65 kg (143 lbs)
    Deadlift: 1x5 @ 120 kg (265 lbs)

    Comments:
    Bench Press got to the point where I will start increasing by 2,5 kg from next workout. The only one with bigger increments is deadlift by 5 kg. I think I will keep it this way for another 2 weeks before going smaller. Deadlift has always been my strong one. Squats my weak one. Gosh I love those pulls.
    I have been tracking my workouts for the past couple of years, so here are best sets I have done, together with when they took place.

    Comments: Not sure if my back is too horizontal, but I felt the bar roll up on my back while coming up from a squat. I guess I should film that.

    Comments: I had to do the Friday’s workout a day earlier. I am traveling out of country for a week so I am not sure whether ai have good opportunity to do my workouts or not.
    The Deadlift was belted for the first time. I will also start increasing the Deadlift with 2,5 kg increments from next workout.

    Beginning of Phase 2.
    Turns out the hotel does have decent gym with free weights and a squat rack.
    I did not increase the weight on the Squat, because they do not have 1,25 kg plates. I also do not have the belt and I am lifting in street shoes.
    Same thing about not increasing the Deadlift.
