Omar just put a new video out on it:

Thanks I'll try out that exercise. Seems to be a bit of a mashup of strength and flexibility though.

June 23

Bench
1x5x125
1x3x125
1x10x95
Failed on the second set I overreached and couldn't even rerack the bar.
Back down to 110 (and frozen for now)



Pullups 1x3
Chins 2x3
Basically static here from last workout

One-Leg Press 3x8x135
Nice to be back to actually exerting myself. A bit sad that I'm basically where I was a month ago, when quad development is really my main workout goal, but hopefully this new structure is good.

Front squats - a whole bunch of sets at low weights trying to get some comfort level.



WC/Rotator cuffs

Re: Another SS log

Bench still needs a lot of work. 5'9" white males don't tend to stall on this lift at 125, so rest assured that you have a lot to gain in technique alone. And going from 5 reps to 3 reps at the same weight is a pretty reliable indicator that you didn't rest long enough between sets. 3 minutes rest if the set was easy, 4-6 minutes if it was hard depending on how hard.

Re: Another SS log

I never said I was white...

I probably do need more rest, 6+ minutes and I probably could have done 3x5 but then the session gets so long

Re: Another SS log

June 25

Bunch of aches in the elbows, hips, knees, and hamstrings, will probably take 2 days off here

OHP
2x5x80
1x7x80

DL
1x7x225
1x5x185
1x10x135 paused
Definitely feeling gains on this lift, particularly the paused set has gotten a lot easier for me, and this video looks to me like my best form yet. Grip was giving out from basically the first rep which was weird but probably just unlucky.


Curls
3x10x45

OL squat
1x5x25

Rope pull/briefcase carry/negatives

Re: Another SS log

July 1

OHP
2x5x85
1x6x85
Gym didn't have any 2.5s so I bumped it up

DL
1x6x225
1x5x185
1x10x135 Paused
Definitely have more reps in me, but this gym used hex plates. They seemed promising in principle, but every time I set the bar down, it would roll away, so I needed to constantly reset and lose tightness.

Curls
2x10x45
1x6x45
15 seconds rest between sets

OL squats
3x5x25

I've moved from GoodLife in Canada to 24 hour fitness in the States. Such a difference, at GoodLife everything was new, clean, and spacious. Here everything is dirty, crowded, and old. I have a month free here, any recommended spots that the Americans in this forum like (chains or SF specific)?

July 3

Bench
2x5x110
1x10x110

Pullups
1x4
2x3

OLLP
3x10x130
Will try alternating the press and pullup to save some rest time

FS
1x5x45
3x5x65
Still figuring this out, don't want to push it until I feel comfortable. Form doesn't look good to me.


Bridge
2x10x135

WC/RC

Still stuck with hex plates unfortunately, but definitely feeling some gains here. The difference between the paused set when I started and now is substantial

Chins 3x10x45
OLS 2x8x25
The squat was a lot harder on the left leg

Negatives/TRX

Been struggling with proper sleep and nutrition, hopefully I can get those back on track in the next 1-2 weeks

Re: Another SS log

Get some lifting shoes if you want to front squat imo.

Anything with a slightly elevated, incompressible heel should be ok.

This single video has helped me the most from going to struggling to add weight to regular injury free progression.

Dress shoes are a bit hardcore for me, but I put in an order for squat shoes

The deadlift is the one lift I feel the most comfortable with, most of my issues are with squatting.

Re: Another SS log

I think you're gonna like the shoes! You might throw a belt on for some SQ just to see how a really tight core feels. I think it just takes time and reps to get the bracing down for SQ. **** is just tough man, I've still got lots of form kinks to work out, and I've tried pretty hard with it for the past 8mo. Keep it up

I'll definitely update when the shoes come in, really looking forward to it. I have a high tolerance for ignoring perceptions but I'd feel pretty dorky wearing a belt for 95lb

Thanks for the encouragement

Re: Another SS log

Got a scale, bw is at 157! I thought I was actually gaining weight.

I think I'll start counting calories/protein, and see where that gets me. Hopefully over the next couple months I can add 5-10 pounds, make some strength gains, and maintain a reasonable sleep and nutrition schedule.

The scale also tells me my bf% is 22, probably not very reliable. But would be nice to get that down as well.
