Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

5.9.17

Weight:160.5 lb. What a puss.

My old YMCA got a pretty nice makeover. It's funny how much better the fitness culture is here in the US. Even at a commercial gym, there are little dudes repping 225 on the incline, smaller girls repping 225 on the squat. Old D1 football players, et cetera. Maybe the effect is more pronounced in the south, but it's nice to be reminded that I am neither strong nor athletic.

--WHAT A BI.TCH!
--Think my PR is 185x4, so pretty bad. Tris a bit sore from doing 75 for thirty reps on the incline yesterday, but I probably only lost a rep from that.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Haha thanks, but I've seen your log. Double the weight, same amount of reps. I'm just a little cardio boy, tryin' my damnedest to reach the tone zone.

I just talked to the owner of a strongman gym outside of town. Should be able to go check it out tomorrow. Lookin forward to telling the big boys to move their stones aside so I can show them how to lap a med ball.

Strongman gym was so fun, the owner warned me it's addictive. Seriously wouldn't mind joining this gym and just going once or twice a week--it's quite cheap.

That concludes the UHF 5 week program (which I stretched into 7-8weeks through traveling, and complied with somewhat loosely). Pretty good week except for Bench. PR'd on a few things, especially squat, for which I made some sort of PR 5 days straight. But now my body is creaky as hell, especially in my hips and shoulders. The pain I surmise is partly from the higher intensity effort 5 days in a row, partly from technique, which in all lifts is starting to slip farther from me. The causes are related, I know. I am going to combine what I liked best about the two programs I've done this year and restart Monday. I will be happy to go back to some lighter weight for a while.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

One thing I keep forgetting to mention is that I am one hundred percent sure I've a slight imbalance. It's especially noticeable when I sumo deadlift: my left leg always gets really scraped up, and my right hand always fails first. Hook gripping, the left thumb always hurts more after. When I squat, I've noticed that I point my right toe out a bit more, and I think I stagger my stance a little but I'm not sure which foot is out front. If it didn't always exist, I hypothesize that it has developed from all this time squatting on uneven Latin American floors. Not sure if it's anything to worry about too much, but I am definitely going to try to fix it.

Also, I like this blog a lot. Full of old-timey lifting advice. posting for my future reference: http://ditillo2.blogspot.com/

Maybe next block I'll sub legs-up for pause and program closegrip back in.

5.22.17

Weight: 165.8--kind of surprised because I didn't eat too much over the weekend, which is something I really need to get better at, especially since I probably undereat pretty frequently on training days as well.

JUHFT week 2 day 1

The gym was crowded (see 205x10 set), these videos are bad.

LBBS
to 255x1@7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mInFWLOL6bA
--disaster of a walkout, but the squat wasn't bad even though my stance was at least 6 inches wider than normal. This reminded me that I am still much stronger like that and more upright. However I don't care that much, since all my heavy pulling at the moment is sumo, so I don't want to kill my hips + want to use my back a bit more in the squat.
--this raises an issue with the overwarm idea: if you misgroove the overrep, any more practice reps you may wish to take might start to appreciably affect the actual work set.
245x8@9.5 (feel)/9(video)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5jQxkVxLJ8
--I am kicking forward a bit again. I hypothesize that are two things to fix it: either work on getting more inclined earlier in the descent, a la rippetoe, or open my hips a bit more (see above). Also just focus better. Won't be changing too many things at once either way.
205x5x2@7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_BJNoE7XGk
205x10@8.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT1oSqJEnD0
--the high schoolers distracted me, had no idea how many reps I did.


A.
Incline
100x8x4
Pull-ups
BWx9,8,5,3,3
--pullups were so weak, I took no rest for the whole superset however. Regardless, not good.

B.
GM
55x18x3
curls
Barbellx15,15,12
Leg raise (from the elbow stirrups thing)
BWx12,12,14

Should have done one more set of every exercise in superset B, but I wasted too much time fooling around with hang snatches. Probably did 15 reps or something. I don't have any interest devoting real time to learning olympic lifts, but they are fun and maybe practicing them every once in awhile might come in handy down the line. How's it look? I think my shoulders are ending up too far behind me, but i don't know how to stop that.

Weight 164.8

Hit a huge wall with push press today. Partly I think because some of the earlier work caught up to me, but also because I found out that the old way I was doing push press was really more of a push jerk.

JuHFT week 2 day 4

Push Press
145x3,1,1,2,2

Dl 2" deficit
180x4x8
--60s rest. Not too hard, I think my form sucked though. Yesterday I tore the scabs on my right shin off Dling, so I pulled very daintily. Also I had a cut inside my thumbnail so I couldn't hook. Phone was dead so no video.

TBDL farmer's carry
275x5 runs
--brought the wrong notebook so couldn't remember last week's weight. Ended up going 50 lbs heavier for the same amount of work, so that's nice. I was moving very fast though, more or less as fast as I could and much faster than last week. This TUT decrease have been negated by the fact that this idiot stopped in front of me during turn 4 so I just held it. Nearly had a blow up when after the set he looked at me sharply for dropping the weights quickly.
--The turns were brutal.

Feeling a bit stale, even getting some headaches (could that be related). Going for a pretty aggressive RM 5 days a week is hard even though the weights are nothing.

--1 rep=1 step. Only reason I improved on the last set was because for some reason an old man came up to me and starting talking about the world's strongest man. He told me he just does curls and cardio now, I said well I hope I can do even that when I'm seventy. He said I should just hope to live to 70, and that he's already buried a heap of friends. I liked that old man, hope to see him again. A good gym brah.

--I had planned to do 255-265, depending on how 275 felt. It felt decent , but then i misloaded and forgot the 2.5s. Still a PR but just by one rep. I didn't even realize until I was finished squatting. I was so sad, hell everyone in the gym was sad. It was terrible.
--the bar rolled a bit backwards on the last rep again. Generally I think I'm looking sloppy. Especially with bracing. This a guy at my gym who powerlifted (515 pr squat) told me that he could tell my upper back wasn't tight enough from across the room.
--think in the next two weeks I will adjust to a wider, more upright position, since that's how I am strongest and the weight is getting pretty close to my record. Even today it was at 88%

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Squat looks incredibly improved. Good bar path. Good hip drive. Front view shows your knees still cave in the hole, but I also see that you shove your knees out hard on the ascent, so don't worry about it. You are developing the strength that will take care of knee cave on its own.

Maybe try seeing if the bar will roll on your back before you unrack it. It will only take a few attempts for you to recognize what position locks the bar in place and what position feels stable but actually leaves the bar loose enough to roll.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Thanks man, your comments had a lot to do with whatever improvement has been made. I still think its a work in progress, some days better, some days worse. I actually think my knee cave isn't as big an issue as the knees shooting back, but I should get some more front/back vids to see what's going on there.

On big sets, I actually do what you are talking about every time, sort of popping the bar off the pins to see if my back is tight. I think the rolling comes from losing tightness, which also correlates with what the gentleman said yesterday. Ever since I saw that Liftrunbang video about elbow pain, I've tried to take my hands almost completely out of it. Right now I have been using a wrist cocked grip, which likely makes the bar more disposed to roll if I lose tightness.

Maybe it has nothing to do with what I wrote, who knows.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Would agree mostly. But personal anecdote, the more I tried to remove my hands, the worse my elbow pain became. I switch between two grips now and feel fine. One, thumb over and pulling the bar into my back. Or two, thumbs wrapped around, more pressure on my wrists but none on my elbows.

Since about 6pm yesterday, I have been having this strange pain in my upper left belly/under my lower left rib. It's not any kind of serious pain, but it would really hurt when I turned on my left side trying to sleep. Deep inhalation hurts, but not too badly. It doesn't feel muscular, but I hope it is. I've been looking at webMD, which is the absolute worst website for a gym brah with a neurotic, morbid disposition. A lot of links led to googling "pain under left lower rib" suggest enlarged spleen, which seems like its not a big issue in itself, but often is comorbid with more serious things. If it gets worse, I'll have to go to a doc, haven't been in 1.5 years at least.

I think the main thing is that as long as the upperback is taking most of the load, you'll be alright.

To offer my anecdotal evidence, my elbow pain has recently been very low, after a big flare up in march. I think part of it's the grip, but another factor has been reintroducing high rep hammer curls at least once a week. I actually think I still get max tightness with a monkey grip, but I don't know if it's the "right" tightness, if that makes any sense.

EDIT: Haha the more I typed, the more I realized I really don't know wtf I'm talking about.
