Tired of "Do you even lift, brah?" rAv's lifting log.

I've been battling knee cave mainly on my right knee, is that what you mean? It was starting to cave and then I corrected it by the looks of it.

Hmm. I guess that's what happened. It just looks freaky because you can see the whole system losing balance because of it. Even your left foot pivots during the correction. Have you considered doing unilateral work?

Re: Tired of "Do you even lift, brah?" rAv's lifting log.

I've mainly been doing stuff with resistance bands like adductions and other activation and strengthening stuff for the glutes. Probably a good idea to do some unilateral work though as it's clearly an imbalance because it's only the right side. Maybe I'll include some bulgarians or lunges when I start Candito's as optional assistance.

Pretty decent workout. Managed to get BWx5 again, so that's nice. At least relative strength went up a bit on bench during cut.

I think my form is making steps in the right direction. The paused set may be one of my best looking sets ever, I think. Pauses were a bit liberal though.

Re: rAv's lifting log: brAv science included

Looks like my log title was changed after all. I didn't ask for the second part but it's kinda clever so I'll allow it.



Ending 4 week minicut today with this being the final result. Imo it went pretty well. I'm still not very lean but that's ok, I don't have enough to fully cut down to anyway, I'll just look skinny.
Now going to eat at maintenance for a week and then a slight surplus again after that. Going for 94-95kg and re-evaluate, at which point I'll likely be pretty fat but also hopefully a bit more lbm and strength.

Deloading, not much to report. Tried some bulgarians after not doing those for a long time. Felt good even with only BW. Likely will incorporate those more often.

Energy levels back up after eating around maintenance for a couple of days.

Re: rAv's lifting log: brAv science included

So I was going to go with Candito's 6 week program starting next week, but now the missus, bless her heart, got bought me the Kizen 16 week powerbuilding program as a surprise gift.
She knew I was looking at programming/coaching and knows I watch Omar Isuf's channel. I've looked at it before but was put off by the 6 days/week and also it's kinda expensive so I wouldn't have bought it myself, but now I'm getting pretty excited to try it.
Curious to see what the high frequency is going to do for me. Squatting and benching 3 times per week, and deadlifting twice. It's fairly low volume per session so I'm hoping that will help me get more quality work in because of increased focus.

Re: rAv's lifting log: brAv science included

Pretty interested to see what this looks like; from their videos, I'm assuming it's multiple lower intensity sets of sub-maximal weight in the 70-85%/3-5 rep per set range?

Re: rAv's lifting log: brAv science included



Don't know if it's readable but week 1 looks like this. Intensity and volume both rise as the weeks go on with some variation in exercises in 4 week blocks.

Everything pretty easy. Need to groove incline bench again it seems, been a while since I've done that. Pretty weak. After set one I moved my grip in about an inch though and that seemed to feel better.

Yesterday I got a massage and I noticed my TFL's are completely jacked up. She barely put pressure on it and I nearly jumped off the table. Will be rolling and stretching them a lot and see if that helps any. Probably from too much sitting if I had to guess.
