Then you want to maybe work triples across or thereabouts, which is like the framing of the house, aka transmutation. Then you gotta put up some drywall and siding. Heavy doubles and even singles, aka realization.
    Thanks! My plan right now is basically that--volume tapers down, and those last 4 weeks or so are mostly triples, doubles, singles.

    • Daily workout is quite helpful to be fit & healthy.
      So I often do half an hour workout including walking, push ups, chin ups and sometimes relax massage with Physio Active One.

        Well, I don't claim to be the foremost authority on meet prep or anything like that, but if you have any questions I can help with, don't hesitate to reach out. Glad you're going to give lifting in a competitive atmosphere a try, I'm sure you'll do awesome.

                  • Carrying a 49 lb box (no trolley, wheels, etc) for 1/4 of a mile to the UPS store. It was harder than I thought it might be, probably because everyone was staring at me and also I ran into the managing partner of the Patent Practice at my firm while on the way there (she also lives in the neighborhood).

                    I normally don't post my workouts here, but I did today because I don't think I would have been able to do what I just did 2 years ago, before barbells/etc.

                        • 5/3/1 cycle 11, week 2 (3/3/3 Squat/Bench)

                          This week is challenging. I was traveling M-W and have to squeeze two workouts into Thursday and Friday. Today went well, and we'll have to see how tomorrow goes with press and dead lift.

                          5/3/1 programmed exercises (3/3/3):

                          • Squat 190x3 210x3 240x4, , BBB: 190x5x3 (reduced)
                          • Bench 155x3 175x3 195x4, BBB: 155x8x5

                          • My fitness plan disappeared!
                            I think it was
                            Day 1 Squats and floor press
                            Day 2 and 3 rest and eat
                            Day 4 deadlift and some kind of overhead push - whether superman pushups or bar work, IDK
                            Day 5 and 6 rest and eat
                            Day 7 Sprint
                            Probably add a day 8 for rest, whatever. Essentially one of three efficient, compound workouts in sequence every two or three days once I feel up to it, soreness gone from the last time.

                            Today is my first day back to work so squats and press of some sort.

                            • 5/3/1 cycle 11, week 2 (3/3/3 Press/Dead lift)

                              I knew it would be tough today, since I had not recovery from yesterday's squat/bench workout. Failed on both the press and dead lift. I thought it would be much longer before I failed on my favorite dead lifts, but this was a tought week. I'm hoping I'll catch up next week with the 5/3/1 sets.

                              5/3/1 programmed exercises (3/3/3):

                              • Press 105x3 120x3 135x2(fail), BBB: 105x5x5
                              • Dead lift 260x3 300x3 335x2 (fail)

                              Other

                              • Warm-up squats 50x10 60x10 70x20
                              • RDLs 135x10 175x10
                              • Chin-ups
                              • Arnold Presses between dead lift sets: 25x15x3, 20x15

                              • Squats, 5 reps 3 sets at 195.
                                Goal for next rotation - 205

                                Benched (stopping with humerus parallel to ground instead of going all the way down, helped a ton on shoulder weirdness!) 195. That was too light so I did 10 reps 3 sets, next time I'll just add more to bar to stay in the 5 rep range. But for first bench press in many months I figured safer to start light.
                                Next bench I'll probably load around 220 and see how that feels.
