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

        Mixed bag today on 5/3/1 week. I was happy to make my press on the second try -- after getting some valuable form advice. However, I couldn't even lift my last dead lift set off the floor. I think that was partly due to a over-compressed schedule last week. Now I need to decide what to do about de-loading. I may just drop 10 pounds for the next cycle and see how that goes.

        Programmed exercises (5/3/1):

        Press 115x5 130x3 145x1 (on second try), BBB: 125x5x5
        Dead lift 280x3 315x3 355x0 (fail)

        Other

        Warm-up/recovery squats 190x5x5
        Chin-ups
        Arnold Presses between dead lift sets: 25x15x2

                  I think that happens at 315. I'll let you know in 4 weeks. It goes like this: Rep 5: Holy crap, that already felt hard and I'm only 1/4 there... Rep 9 "oh crap, gotta stand here a minute and catch my bearings" Rep 11: No way I'm getting to 20, let me just squeeze out one more. Rep 15: Wow, I can't keep my back in extension even at the top. The belt is digging into my ribs and hips. Rep 16: Okay, 4 more. Take them one at a time. Rep 17: Wow, I'm almost done. If I don't crumple into a pile under this bar, I may finish this thing. Rep 18: There's the grind. Wow, I can't catch my breath. Just gotta finish this up. Rep 19: Oh crap, I really am going to finish this. Rep 20: Just stand up and get it into the rack before collapsing. Then you're on the floor. You don't remember how you got there. You want to flip over onto your back, but it seems like too much work. You know you need to take the plates off the bar, but you can't imagine actually doing it. You don't want water, just air. You can't get enough. You take 10 minutes before the next exercise, and the 45 lb warmup for bench feels like it weighs 225. Then you come back to life, gradually. Except your legs. People ask you all day if you were shot in the war, or why you hobble so terribly.

                  • Did 5*5 deadlifts @ 165 lbs. That is 25 more than my pr. Yea me. Rowing 500 m followed by med ball slams. Deacreases 100m each time.

                    Question: Does anyone else get really red knuckles fter dead lifting. Mine are still red and i did the workout this morning.

                        You'd think it would be the targeted muscle group that gives you the most trouble but often times with heavy 20 rep work its the lungs.

                        Today's work:

                        Squat:

                        230 x 6, 265 x 6, 280 x 10 (PR!)

                        Conditioning: Wallballs, Double unders and burpees TABATA style (40sec on 20sec off)

                        After: Snatch work
                        Hang Snatch + Full snatch complex
                        5 x 115lb

                        Lighter work just working on form. At round 2/3 the pop was really there, never felt the bar float to the catch position as smoothly. Very excited as the snatch is a true weakness of mine.

                          • I'd like to deadlift & squat twice a week (the only way I seem to get stronger). Any recommendations on splitting these up on tuesdays and fridays? Right now i'm alternating 5x5 but would like to get both in twice a week ideally. Thx

                              3 x 5 squats & 1 x 5 deadlifts both days. When that becomes too much to recover from, switch one deadlift session to power cleans.
