  • Well, since I read this thread almost daily just to see what everyone is up to I think I might as well start posting my workouts too.
    This was Wednesday's workout, my first official day of 5/3/1.

    175 lbs x 5
    200 lbs x 5
    225 lbs x 10 (Really surprised myself that I got 225 x 10. I felt like I could have kept going other than my grip, not used to high rep deadlifts.)

    65 lbs x 5
    75 lbs x 5
    85 lbs x 8 (Thought I would get more than 8, so that was a little disappointing)

    BW + 20 lbs x 5
    BW + 20 lbs x 5
    BW + 20 lbs x 3 ( was shooting for 3 sets of 5)

    Looking forward to my next one and to the progress that I'm sure will come!

      • 100 1h KB swings @ 24kg
        5 TGUs on each side (2@24kg, 3@16kg)

        1st time I've tried using the 24 in 3 or 4 weeks, couldn't manage more than a couple of swings & no TGUs with it then and have been using a 16 at the gym at work (heaviest there).

        • Swam 30 laps


          • Yesterday was Starting Strength NJ Pulling Camp, so I ended up deadlifting some sets of 5 @ 365 (pretty light) and mucking about with power cleans up to 135. Working on form. I have some issues on the power clean.

            Today I pressed 132.5 for 5 x 5 and squatted 365 x5 (new PR). Texas Method is working wonders for my squats. I'd been stalled out for several weeks and have added 10-15 pounds to my 5RM in just a few weeks. Really planning to break the 400 barrier by the next meet (USAPL in New Brunswick on 8/2).

                    • First post in a very long time, but I thought I would chime in.

                      I have a very physical job (field assistant for a land surveyor), so I've been keeping my workouts short and sweet. Lately it's been alternating days of turkish get-ups (5 min @ 68lbs) and swings (5 min @ 53lbs). I'm hoping to eventually work up to an 88lb TGU.

                      • Today it's HIT for 30 minutes


                        • It will be upper body workout today plus some sprints.

                          Been experimenting with longer resting periods between sets - seems to be working well


                          • Squats 3 sets, 5 reps 175

                            bench press 175x5, 175x2, 165x5.... I knew I was gonna have trouble when the first rep of the first set sat on my chest for a second before moving up.... time to back up a bit and try again...

                            deadlift 65x10, 155x8, 205x5, 235x5


                            • Warmup: 1 minute Grok hang and Grok squat

                              50 pushups, 50 squats, 2 minute flutter kicks, 40 pushups, 40 squats, 2 minute Russian twist, 30 pushups, 20 squats, 2 minute plank, 20 pushups, 10 squats, 2 minute stability ball toe touches


                              • I've done 5 press ups every time the ball goes out of play in the Brazil v Croatia World Cup match. I've lost count how many I've done but I'm glad it's half time! I'll try and continue into the second half.
