not sure if trollin..i feel like my biceps are really weak
anyways, on to the update
WalMart warmup again, which wasn't enough to get my good so I had to foam roll on a regular black foam roller instead of my blue rumbleroller.. well the black is pretty lolworth compared to the rumblerollers imo.
Got a nice long SMR session in with foam rolling and lax ball, also did some mobility work via the couch stretch and cat/camel. Don't remember where I saw this link, but it lays out some quality mobility work.
Ship the morning workout! Felt pretty good to get in there this morning since I'm going to be at a bachelor party for the rest of the long weekend.
Short foam roll, found some tight spots that weren't there even on Wednesday and I worked them out. Couch stretch
Front Squat: WU+, 8x185
Finally a little bit of WIM, I think I might have been able to get 10 but the bar almost fell off my shoulders due to wrist inflexibility (maybe weird upper arm to forearm ratio ?)
OHP: WU+, 7x130
Yah buddy. I really just wanted to slap plates on there for the final set, but I went with my prescribed weight and it felt good.
Rows: WU+, 7x160
Took 60 secs max rest between each set so I could get out of the gym.
Maxes Week over and here are the training maxes I'll be starting with (90% of Wendler 1RM formula). I'm happy for some of these numbers but I'm really looking forward to increasing my DL so it is much better than my squat.
It also seems taking a couple months off can really wreck some year long goals. I may need to revise them in early July once I have a better idea of what I can accomplish with this programming. I've only been back in the gym for a little over a month, so it's pretty awesome to see how quickly some strength comes back. I need to make sure to stay motivated for the long haul so I can get ****ing strong.
25s were already on the bar, so I started my warm up sets there (WIM). As a matter of habit, I took 25s off and just put 45s on and did a set of 5, then realized that was supposed to be my first work set... so I did it again for good measure.
5/30: didn't do sprints and I can give a variety of excuses, but I will save them for another time.
quick foam roll, didn't lax ball at all
I'm kinda with snitch in thinking that AMRAP PC sets are kinda stupid. One reason I'm doing cleans first is because it's a nice warmup for DL. So going balls out last set makes no sense, so I might do some tweaking to rep/set scheme.
9x260 (338 1rm, -1lb)
I think I could've got 1 more rep. Will beast it next time.
Much easier than last time, moving up to 125 next week
Try 3x20xBW next week, any extra reps are progress!
+5lbs next week
Overall, a good ass training session. Now I just need to make sure and get motivated to run.
I think I'm going to kinda combine both of your ideas a little. On 5 and 3 weeks, I'm just going to do some extra volume, then on 1x weeks I'm going to work up to near max singles. Then I'm kind of getting in some dynamic rep ranges and should still progress.
Long foam roll + couch stretch +
Vid below, some reps are very close to parallel so I'm going to count them.. Any thoughts on my back? I'll take a 45 degree angle to the rear next time to look at knee path.
Almost lost balance on a few reps because I was pushing the bar back a bunch for some reason.
Hmmmm... well it looks like I'm assisting these a little bit with my legs or something? I just notice my butt going down a little bit. I kno they are supposed to be pretty strict, but is a little movement there standard?
