    295 was my breaking point for double over. After switching to alternate popped up over 315 immediately.

      I understand the 4x60 for example; however, the :60 (i.e: 4x60:60) has me baffled.
      Was a gym rat for most of my younger/middle aged life. Just don't recall seeing that particular notation.

      Thanks,

        Good Rich. Had my 1st grading recently, so no longer a virgin white belt
        Started late last year and had a couple of months off sure to injury, but kept going to class even when I couldn't train, just to keep in the habit of going I'd nothing else.

                    • An hour walk this morning followed by a day of playing frisbee & walking around downtown with my step sons. I am officially exhausted now! Bonus tho, I have discovered that frisbee is an awesomely fun way to get in sprints

                      • I squatted my weight today! I don't know why but it feels like some kind of a cool accomplishment.

                        Squats - 125x5x5
                        Deadlift - 105x5x1 or is it 105x1x5... anyways 5 reps, 1 set
                        OH Press - 45x4x5 then switched to DB OH Press which I will stick with, 22.5x1x5

                        Then just messed around with the BB Curl and did the stairstepper while waiting for b/f to finish. Oh, and some stretching. Not too bad after eating too much crap and drinking too many cocktails for three days!

                          • 5/3/1 cycle #2 week #1 (5x5)

                            Great workout today. I am really loving 5/3/1 and am glad I made a commitment to getting the squats going. I had the best trainer at my gym check my squat form and he said I was good -- just that the knees were a little wobbly when I was pushing out of the hole.

                            I made a few assistance exercise changes, since I am starting with a new 5/3/1 cycle:

                            • added 5x10 squats as "big and boring" assistance exercise to really work on my form (replaced leg presses)
                            • tried to do a lot more 15 rep sets with only one minute rest
                            • interleaved different exercises to reduce time -- I got my usual 1:15 down to less than an hour -- warm-ups plus 25 working sets and very intense

                            • Squats 5/5/5 145 165 190 (5 reps on last set -- didn't try for more)
                            • Squats assistance 5x10x135
                            • Hammer Strength pull-downs 5/5/5 140 160 180 (8 reps on last set)
                            • Hammer Strength Machine pull-downs (assistance) 3x15x130
                            • Hammer Strength overhead press 5/5/5 95 105 120 (7 reps on last set)
                            • Arnold press 3x15x20
                            • Cable tricep push-downs 3x12 110 100 90
                            • Hamstring curls 2x10x135

                            • Spent a little time in the garage gym learning the power clean. Racking the bar from the hang position is good.... I feel really uncoordinated doing the jump.........

                                Yeah, those can be tough to learn. Practice a lot of reps, and you'll get the hang of them.
