  • First time touching a barbell in two months. Did deadlifts, worked my way up to an easy 160kg. My 1RM was 167.5kg, and it definitely wasn't easy. So feel I have not lost any strength at all, but maybe even gotten a bit stronger while being away.

    Will be good to train the deadlift again

          Honestly, I like doing kettlebell work (like swings, cleans, etc) for volume and maybe a run. Seems to cure a hangover pretty quick. The biggest obstacle is getting off the couch or out of bed. Or maybe I'm too motivated. :/

            A cheese omelet with lots of hot sauce followed by a half hour of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the best remedy I know. I guess sweating and getting the heart rate up helps move the acetaldehyde out. Or something.

                Prevention is the best option. Eat a high protein meal before drinking, drink a lot of water afterwards, and become 7/8 German. That seems to help.
                In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

                  Yeah I discovered this in college. The best in fall/end of winter when it's 50-60 outside.

                  No, I don't. I've been pulling sumo on monday, Romanian deadlifts on thursday after squats, then regular stance saturday for volume (Russian Bear outline from Power to the people).

                  My sumo stance isn't quite sumo. It's a bit wider than shoulder width, feet straight ahead, grip is three fingers on the knurling. It's a good strong stance where i can still get the same torque effect with a standard stance and can pull a bit more.

                    How much more do you pull semi-sumo vs. conventional?

                      Haven't maxed on them in awhile. Not a whole lot more, but it's a bit more comfortable as I can keep my body tighter and I feel like I get into a better position that way.

                        Jawol. Germans and Russians are be hardcore hardcore.

                        @ Rich

                        Awesome work man. Your whole lifting profile is coming along really well.

                        Man, that hangover cure sounds awesome too. F**k I hate this f**king nightshade ban already. Potato and tomato, meh, but my hot sauce... grrrrrr.


                        Today:

                        Squats:

                        90 kg (198 lb) x 5
                        110 kg (242 lb) x 5
                        132.5 (292 lb) x 5
                        155 kg (341 lb) x 5
                        177.5 kg (390 lb) x 5

                        Bench Press:

                        52.5 kg (115 lb) x 5
                        65 kg (143 lb) x 5
                        80 kg (176 lb) x 5
                        92.5 kg (203 lb) x 5
                        105 kg (231 lb) x 4 (f)

                        F**king mutherf**king bench press you f**king f**k!!!!!!!!

                        This... was... frustrating. The 105 x 5 will be mine ... oh yes, it will be mine.

                        Damn that was frustrating... I got the drive started on the fifth, then boom, clanging on the pins. Kills me because I know I have it in me, but today it just wasn't happening. Goddammit.

                        Row:

                        60 kg (132 lb) kg @ 2x5
                        72.5 kg (160 lb) x 5
                        85 kg (187 lb) x 5
                        97.5 kg (214 lb) x 5

                        Accessory work:

                        Cable crossovers, EZ Bar curls (21s), cable curls, reverse grip bench press, Machine Row, Dips.

                        Sprints:

                        Eliptical - 4 min Tabatas, 1 min off, 6 min Wingates (30 sec on, 1 min off)

                        Smoked myself with these sprints at the end, but man it was worth it. Sweated buckets and felt amazing once I got my breath back.

                        I'm sick of this weighing 106 kg business. I'm still eating big, but no more skipping sprints. It's time for a mini cut.

                        • Holy hell stop squatting so much weight, everyone. I'm trying to catch up.

                          Today was squat 5x5 @ 240, bench 5x5 @ 225, deadlift 1x5 @ 355, some accessory arm work.

                          I'm gonna 5-rep 270 on squats Friday. 275 if I'm feeling randy.

                                I can't, I'm trying to catch Reventon and stay about even with Jefferson (Didn't I used to lift more than Jefferson? Sandbagger!!!).

                                Of course, you're the guy to catch on the bench press.
