Re: Hi this is Jim Logg


Did another "overwarm" on the bench, hopefully I won't for a while now. I think it's counter productive.

Going to start traveling for a while, the log may get spotty. Maybe I'll be able to squeeze in a DL session today.

JM w5d4

145x8x2 set 2:
--I know that J shaped bar paths are the vogue, but I wonder if these aren't in fact too flappy.

Incline DB cluster, 15s rest
45sx5x12 in 5:30
--I was smoked after this, could barely do 5 push-ups!

Pullover (think that's what its called, resembles a tricep extension but stretches the pecs) + Incline curls
-A few sets of ten with the 25lb dumbbell.

4 rounds of 5min

in the ~120s breaks I attempted:

Hanging L sits +2 ct
5, 3, 3, 1
--holy is this hard. Doing them as slowly and controlled as possible. Even with such low volume, my abs are sore today. And I might have cheated the leverage just slightly on a few reps too. This will be a good exercise to try improve for a while.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Squeezed in this last workout from the states.


Weight: 176.2 holy! All time heaviest. Well I don't think it'll last. I'll be doing a lot of hiking soon.

JM w5d5
--forgot my chalk and straps so did mixed grip. I F hate it, for some reason it always hurts my shoulder. Also it's weird, I am definitely strongest with hook when I am at 100%, but when my grip is weak due to sweaty hands, fatigue et cetera, I am better mixed.
--for no reason, just hadn't done it in a while. Seemed fine
230x3x7 75s rest
230x4@8 Seems alright


Ab wheel from Bosu ball
+15x1+f lol

Hamstring curl
four sets of ten

Ok, now that I am on the road, don't exactly know what my training plans will be. Going to try to stay on Juggernaut, but compliance will be hard. May switch to basic GZCL method. I'll do what I can.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg


Went to what I guess is a chilean version of anytime fitness. Crappy gym, crappy session.

Everything kg

JM w6d1
--Before I left I thought for sure I'd get 12+ but a few days of travelling and dismal nutrition got to me.

--Happy with this though


Ab wheel

I think this will be the last day that I'll try to comply with the Juggernaut method. It just doesn't work well on an erratic schedule, nor in gyms where the smallest plates are 10kg. Think I'm going to do something like this:
Squat Gzcl
OHP hepburn
Back Abs legs

Bench Gzcl
front squat 5/3/1
rows arms hamstrings

DL Gzcl
Volume bench and dips
Back legs abs

Basic full-body stuff. Then I'll try to do some supplemental work on the chest, abs, and neck with BW excercises when I'm gymless.

Or, if I can get something more structured going I'll probably do a 3 or 4 day split with front squat, close grip or incline, rdl, and volume ohp being t2s.

Read In Patagonia, by Bruce Chatwin, on the way to Patagonia. How corny! Nice book though, lyric prose and a mythmaking sensibility.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Ok in the sticks a while. I realized that there is pretty much no way i'll make it to a gym for at least two more weeks. I'll try to make do. A lot of hiking though.

4x20 push-ups with 4x5 human inchworm
--something about bodyweight excercises just bores the **** out of me. How people could train like this for an hour is beyond me
Natural log press
2x10 pull-ups

Dips + bag (I don't know how much, at the airport it weighed 8kg, a few things have been taken out, a few put in)
6 sets of 5, 45s rest
BWx5x2, 15s rest

35 push-ups

Natural stone lift
stonex15 (hows my form:
--judging by how easily I curled this I don't think it weighed too much, but it was heavier than it looks.

day bagx5,4,4

Bar row

Stone DL
stonex4 how's my form:
--now we're talking! Certainly felt much harder than a 2 plate bb dl, though it probably weighed much less.
--I couldn't achieve full hip extension without mashing my dick. I have a lot to learn about stone lifting! In this vid it's pretty obvious I'm starting with my hips too high. Not sure what happened on between reps 3 and 4, it went from pretty easy to very grindy, maybe I misgrooved.

with controlled leg raises
Bwx5x4 pausing in l-sit as long as possible each rep (which was not long)

10km hike. On the hike I practiced OHP with a MUCH heavier stone. On the first rep I held my breath from the ground through the press. Didn't quite lock it out, dropped the stone and bent over, feeling this enormous pressure and electric like tingling in my head. Vision occluded for a second too. Whoa! Probably the closest I've been to a syncope since I did it on purpose at a middle school party. Lesson learned, I picked the rock up and regained my breath after the clean. Did 3 tough reps. Tris were spent from dips, though.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg


15km Hike up a mountain.

On the way back down I espied some good stones.They were round and river-worn. Kind of chalky too. There was a great big 'un which I tried to lift to the chest. I was able to lap it but couldn't extend at all. Didn't try again.

Later I lifted this rock, first three times, then 8.
Lifting stones is a lot different than a barbell. Feel it in the back more, and balance is a bigger issue. See on the second rep how I nearly lose it forward on the descent, then am able to press it up again. Don't think I would be able to have done that with barbell weighing 115 or so (probably my 8rm). Form probably needs some work, that backwards path doesn't look very efficient.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

--these were done about an hour apart

Then I went to the free municipal gym in this tiny town I'm in. They had a walmart-style ultra crapola bench.

I originally wanted to do a reverse pyramid starting with 90kg (literally all the weight) but it was taking too long for it all to free up, plus it seemed like it would have been kind of rude of me. So I did this involved ramp up.

In Kgs

30 x5
65x5x2 everything up to this paused
65x5,4 tng
55x10 tng
50x12 paused
--Not counting the weight of the bar, which I doubt weighed more than 5-10lbs
--60-90s rest. Not quite as close as I normally go with cgbp, but I wouldn't have been able to fit my normal grip in between the hooks. Still, this wasn't that great, but I will blame a few days of stone pressing and the dips earlier.

Bent-over row
--much more upright than I normally row. Pulling to the nipples

Ab wheel
Reverse curl

Lat-pull down
This machine was really crappy and I couldn't get my arms all the way extended, so I did 8 sets of these partial rom wide-grip pull-downs with the whole stack. Gotta say, don't ever remember my lats getting such a pump though!

Weighed my self after: 77.4 kg. Not too bad! But I fear it'll start dropping pretty quickly as the days go on.
