  • Fatigue kicked in today and my legs felt sore as hell from squats and deadlifts the last two days. nonetheless I got some work in. I made it a little bit lighter and machine based and although I was really tired before the workout and my legs were aching I can tell you that now (1 1/2 hours post workout) I feel muuuuch better, overall and in my legs.

    1. Front squats
    20 x 10, 30 x 5, 40 x 5, 50 x 3, 60 x 3, 70 x 3, 80 x 3
    70 * 2 x 3
    60 * 2 x 3

    2. Incline chestpress machine
    20 x 5, 30 x 5, 40 x 5
    50 x 12, x 10, x 8

    3. Close grip cable rows
    45 x 5, 55 x 5, 65 x 5, 75 x 5, 85 x 5
    65 x 5, 75 x 5, 85 x 5, 70 x 5, 55 x 5

    4. Lateral raises machine
    10 x 5, 15 x 5, 20 x 5, 25 x 5
    20 x 5, 15 x 5, 10 x 5

    5. Triceps pushdowns
    32,5 x 5, 37,5 x 5, 42,5 x 5, 47,5 x 5, 52,5 x 5
    47,5 x 5, 42,5 x 5, 37,5 x 5, 32,5 x 5

    (Everything which is one line had rests between 20-30 seconds inbetween; from one line to another I made rests of about 45-60 seconds)

          There was/is no pain, it just feels a little swollen ? Still going to try the dips tomorrow.

            You are living dangerous Oldschhol, it may be the start of a tendón rip, and tendons are tied to the bone almost like a broom or a fan, and some part of this may have losened and made the connection points weaker! Maybe you'll feel some pain tomorrow, anyway be very careful now...

              Me too. Will video.

              Today's workout was Jiu Jitsu Open Mat training. Tried to take it easy to save some juice for tomorrow, but I had to deal with some bruisers, and, well, you do what you gotta do.

              Since I'm also in weight-making mode for my PL meet, I'm documenting teh abzz (Would rather be big and thick, but will be a better competitor at 148 than 165 right now), here's a turrible photo of my progress. 154.6 today:

                Bad idea. We're tryin to lift for life. So do what you know and rest it for a couple days - particularly since there's swelling. Seriously.

                  You look great! 148lbs is too skinny for you. Hope you don't stay there long. Not that you asked for my opinion. 😉

                    • I gotta take a video of squats; it feels like I'm losing a ton of upper body tension/squeeze in my shoulders on the way up. 1x5 @ 280 today, but it was tough.

                      • Today was supposed to be a light, cardio day since I've my endurance KB workout scheduled tomorrow and I had a good workout yesterda. I didn't change that...too much I've been under a lot of unusual stress and there is something satisfying about picking heavy things up. Well, heavy things for ME.

                        Started with my prescribed walk (5 minutes), 7 minutes run, and another 5 minute walk.
                        Several rounds of rowing 20 calories, and then 15 jam-ball slams between each round of rowing. I had planned on doing that for 20 minutes, but I made the "mistake" of grabbing a rower by the Olympic lifting stations so after a couple of rounds I gave in and...

                        Trapbar deadlifts
                        5x130
                        5x150
                        5x160

                        • Okay, I think tomorrow will be another training day but then an offday will come. Feel more and more fatigued, but got in some weighttraining today nonetheless. Tried hang cleans the first time today, never did them before.

                          1. Hang cleans
                          20 x 5, 30 x 5, 35 x 5
                          40 * 2 x 3, 45 * 2 x 2, 50 * 2 x 2
                          55 x 2, 57,5 x 1, 60 x 1, 62,5 x 1
                          50 * 3 x 3, 40 * 3 x 5

                          2. Bench press
                          20 x 10, 30 x 5, 40 x 3, 50 x 2, 60 x 2
                          65 x 2, 70 x 2, 75 x 2
                          70 x 2, 75 x 2, 80 x 2
                          65 * 4 x 4

                          3. Lat pulldowns
                          40 x 5, 60 x 5, 70 x 3
                          80 * 5 x 4

                          Breaks between sets quite short (30-60 secs max) and weights in kg as usual.

                            Why are you doing hang cleans ?

                              • Yesterday was my weekly 500-KB swing workout (12 KG KB):

                                5 rounds of:
                                5/5 swings, 2 TRX chest presses
                                10/10 swings, 4 goblet squats
                                15/15 swings, 6 TRX full extensions
                                20/20 swings, 8 TRX rows

                                It took me longer this time than last time about 5 minutes! The last 150 or so were also harder than normal. The difference this THIS time it was the 3rd day in a row of working out, normally I've a rest day the day before I do this workout. Apparently that makes a difference, and will remember that in the future. I also normally do a specific KB warmup before this workout and I went straight from mobility work to the workout. Lesson learned!

                                I didn't start with alternating single arm swings, I started out just switching when it was time to do so. I really like the alternating swings though, especially when I start getting fatigued. My calluses were, however, tender at the end.

                                Rest day today!
