Back finally got cleared to workout, so in addition to workout/weight loss challenge at work, friend and I are 7 weeks into p90x again. Yesterday was plyometrics, it still kicks my ass, and I hate it. #stillfatbutfeelingbetter

I started the 5/3/1 program. Going to try and stick with it for 6 months or longer and see how it goes. I have he same opinion that a lot of people have I think, in that squats and bench once a week isn't enough. But think I'm going to do the "big but boring" for the assistance work to get more volume at least.

My strength took a swan dive about 2months ago after I got sick and just hasn't come back.That with a lack of sleep and less food recently seem to have just totaled my strength.

But I'm trying, I'm trying real hard.

make sure you aren't trying too hard. a lot of inexperienced lifters plateau well before they should simply because they try too hard and go too heavy for too long. You will not grow for too long when training like that. Make sure the maxes that you set your 5/3/1 up with are reasonable - you should have a little gas in the tank after your last work sets each week. It is really hard on the ego not to go max effort on every work set every week, but if you are not on drugs then your body will not be able to effectively recover from a workload like that.

I have had numerous people regain upward momentum in the training when they check their ego at the door, lower the weights, and build some real speed and explosive power. I have also met many other people that just can't not bench a ME 225x4 every single fucking bench workout, and who have been benching that same fucking weight for 2 years straight with zero gains. some people just don't believe that they will get stronger through lifting lighter weights. that's their loss I guess.

Went down to Impact Elite yesterday and had a sweet skwot workout with some cool dudes. JP Price is a great guy. Picked up a few pointers on my squat that I feel will benefit me greatly. It's a cool gym and if any of you KCers are into powerlifting, their team might be worth looking into training with.

I got the opportunity to join Whitebird and his wife today for a back workout. We didn't throw much weight on the bars/machines, but we did hit a lot more reps than I am used to for a lot less weight and it was tough getting through the entire routine.

The last couple of sets of 15-20 were definitely sets of 15 for me as 20 reps were not left in the tank


It was a great workout, and nice to mix it up.


Shelby put me in my place

One month in on the 5/3/1 with BBB for assistance. 5x10 for deadlifts for assistance even at 50% are killer, way more volume than I have ever done on DL by far. As far as the BBB assistance work, I am alternating with the main lifts.

Mon - Squat 3x5 and DL 5x10 and 5x10 leg extensions
Tues - Bench 3x5, OHP 5x10 and curls
Thurs- DL 3x5, Squat 5x10, 5x10 assisted Pullups
Fri - OHP 3x5, Bench 5x10, 5x10 front and side raises

The program has a lot slower progression and the working sets increasing each set is still a little lower weight than what I was doing before at a basic 3x5 LP program.

So nothing new, just hope I can progress with the program for the next year.

Just some random stuff.

db incline - 140's for 10+ for 2 sets
shoulder press - 125's for 9
squats - after some pre-exhaustion of the quads, 295 x 10, 325 x 15, 365 x 15. Haven't squatted in like a year and I'm certain that 365 for 15 is a PR. We will see how long it takes to get 405 x 15.

Hit my DL goal before the year ended. 500lbs @195bw

I'm all over the board with what goals are. Wanted to get lean, want to eat everything. ADHD fit life.

Wife also hit 315lbs @155bw. So theres that.

New programming I'm on has me focusing on back 2-3 times a week, been doing that for 6-7 weeks. Can see a slight difference in thickness over that time. Def incorporating movements I don't normally do.

Hey screw you jdub.

Tried for reps, did 405x9.5 on deads since not touching them from the 500lb lift.

Gonna keep working with bigger weight more often, I can tell its kind of shocking my mind and muscles. I usually stay in the realm of what I'm used to, which if I want to continue to see progress I need to move that. I like to think I do, but if anything my wife does more than I do.

I'm just not competitive enough for the field, and I know that.

Now, on the other hand, trying to convince my wife.

She did deads yesterday 275x10 with more in the tank. She'd have to diet down a bit to hit the 14X weight class for the raw division, but its possible. Though I'm afraid by the time she accepts that she should, it will hit the limit registration wise. I'm thinking she could be competitive with a 34X dead, and squat by that time.

Tell her if she waits until she's "competitive" or "got a chance to win" then she'll never go to a meet. At least that's my experience. As soon as I think I could be tops at a local meet I don't want to do it anymore because I'm not as good as the top regional guys at the next level yet so why bother. And I'm sure once I get to that point I still won't feel like shit yet because I won't be as strong as the top national level guys and so on.

That's what I love about PL is that there is always always always going to be somebody better than me but it's always something attainable. Keeps me coming back forever <3
