--they felt pretty good, but I saw the reps on my last set were uniformly high. This bugged me, and I had alot more in the tank, so I filmed a double at 235. These were also high, and I did a single. This looked good, so I tried 250. The weight was light on my back, but it didn't come up too easily. This was, sadly, a PR.

Well i'm glad to know you hold my lifting to such a high standard. Wait till I get back to colombia to see the real Smith machine all-stars.

Weight: 162
Felt pretty bad, and hadn't slept well. I think I should have gotten a rep or two more on the last set of squats.

LBBS
3x5x225
--first set I was using a narrower stance, and I was going deeper than I want. Second and third sets were way easier, but I think my form kind of sucked. Head cocking back, which I've realized I do when the bar drifts forward. I felt horrible, thought I was going to vomit. Normally I take about 3-4 minute rests, but between set 2 and 3 I took 10.
set 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYncp6F_jBc
set 2: useless angle
set 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppoyRFBl2hw

BP
--At first I was going to skip it due to the elbow pain, but I decided to try. Pain relieved into the sets. The cue "pull the bar apart" had to be forgotten though. Interestingly, the pain forced me to keep my wrists straight, which brought a noticeable increase in power. So maybe I learned something.
2x5x140
1x11x140
--had another rep or two I think.

Chins+20
5(neutral)
--too much pain
Pull-up ladder, wide grip.
5+4 (19 total)

The elbow pain is on the inside, and flares up very badly in the elbows and forearms when I grip hard and when I supinate my hands. I need to figure out whats wrong, and how to fix it. I'm starting to notice it outside of the gym too.

Weight 162. If I can manage to eat enough, I decided I wouldn't mind trying to get up to 175 or so.

--Every set got easier. I felt really creaky coming in.
--Head still cocking back, bar tilting forward a bit. I think a huge amount of my form breakdowns can be attributed to improper bracing.
--Also, with the high elbow position, I have a tendency to stay horizontal for too long coming out of the whole.
Set 1: Does this stance look too wide?
Set 3:

Was in a rush, AMRAP'd some neutral grip chins. Got 9. LOL booo! Are these much harder than supinated chins, or am I just a weak ass?

Didn't weight myself, but I've been eating like a fatass. I must say it really helps in the weightroom.

Went to the rockclimbing gym I used to go to. Until I get back I am kind of bouncing from gym to gym. They have bumpers and I did some cleans.

--Felt good, head still not under control, though. My general kinesthetic sense is getting alot better. I still can't perfectly control depth, but I have a good idea. I also can feel form breaking down with much better insight (EG if the problem was in hips not being back enough, hips rising too high, core folding, etc.).
--I find some of Chris Duffin's videos insufferable, but man has his stuff on bracing helped me out.

--better, but back is still rounding. Still, to watch my old video of 260x4, there has definitely been SOME sort of improvement.
--the bar at this gym is a little smaller, and I can hook grip. I don't know why but I feel tighter this way. On rep 5, I had to switch to mixed though.

Weight 164

I have no gym, and I'm really busy, so I haven't been able to lift. But today I had some business at my old workplace, and I stopped in to the company gym after. I had no idea it was so nice, bumpers, rogue gear, etc.

The pins in the squat rack were set to the height of my neck/clavicle when I came in. And there was a bar with 135 on them. I overhead pressed it. My sticking point is about at my eyes, I realized.

Tomorrow if I have time I am going to try to go in for squats and deads.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

26.11.16
I went to my old company gym when I had a break. All I did was LBBS two sets of five at 240lbs, before I got interrupted (owned) by some guy I used to work with who competes in men's physique. Not much to log, probably better to explain in the GGO thread.

3.12.16
Had to take a week off as I moved back to Colombia. Went to my old gym for a week long membership.
LBBS
2x5x225
1x10?x185
--I had to work in with this trainer there. He was working with 185, and we were only taking like 90s rests (i would have waited for him to finish, but the gym was going to close). When he gave me a "spot" as I grinded a little during rep 5, set 2, I realized it should just take the L and do some higher reps with him. Think I did ten, not 100% though.

FS
1x10x135

OHP
3x5x115
--A little coming up on the toes. Also lost my balance at the top of one rep.

DL
--1x7x245
---It's possible I only did 6.

12.4.16
Serious doms everywhere.
Weight: 73.5 kg. Bummer. Lost weight and abs at the same time.

12.5.16
I came into the gym still with bad DOMS. My hammies were as tight as tuned piano wire, so I tried to "foam roll" using a yoga mat wrapped around a dumbbell.

LBBS
2x5x215
1x8x215
--last set was pretty hard, don't know if i could have done another. Couldn't video because these girls were doing yoga next to me and I would have looked like a real creep.

HBBS
12x145
--did these to see how they feel after a long hiatus. Felt good and quite easy, although I was developing some pain on the left side of my mid-back.

BP
3x5ishx155
--ass may have been coming off the bench a few reps. On the last set, I asked a guy to spot me. Despite my explicit instructions not to touch the bar unless I asked for help, the gentleman could not restrain himself. I guess reps 4 and 5 shall be scored zero, even though I think I had them easily. I'll blame it on my spanish.
--I might know now why my bench got worse and worse the first time I was in Colombia (apart from the weightloss). I hadn't realized before, but the bench is extremely short. This was messing with my arch, which also messing with my grip. And soon my CGBP was nearly converging on my normal grip.

DB bench
50x5x2;
50x11x1

CHins+10
6,4,5
--wow I suck

Neutral grip X Dip ladder superset
--neutral grip to 3+2 (8 total)
--dips to 4 (10 total)

Happily, I have found another gym even cheaper and closer to my house. When my week-long membership ends on Friday, I'm definitely making the switch. I don't know if it will end up being any better, but they at least have round plates, and two squat racks. If that place doesn't work out for me, I'll join a crossfit gym uptown.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

7.12.16

There was a little back and forth between me and this older guy about sharing the squat rack--he kept adjusting the pins, insisting that he needed to look in the mirror. We would have been F'ing around on that squat rack all day, so I ended up doing front squats. I'm happy to give my elbows a break, anyway.

FS
2x3x185
1x5x185
--looking at the vid, I was pretty disappointed with how **** my Front squats look. I don't think the exercise is supposed to involve that much hip. But, when I practiced the form in the mirror, I saw my back was tilting at the same angle as the vid. Not sure how to fix, besides widening my stance.
--Also my phone kept running out of memory. Sadly rep 5 got cut off, which is also when my Colombian squat partner started getting hyped, screaming Vamos! Vamos!
Set 2:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PF5e1zvv2k8
set 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQGUoQSmOWY

HBBS
1x10x185
--same strange pain in my left obliques. Something to take note of.

OHP
2x5x115
1x9x115
--not bad at all. I think I benefited from the decreased squat intensity.
--not counting the last rep on set three, since I lost balance, but it got overhead.
--my wrists are in almost in complete extension the whole time, definite leak.


DL
1x6x255
--I was focusing on making sure my hips weren't shooting up, and they didn't, but I forgot to set my back! One step forward, one backward. Hopefully it'll all come together soon.
--

Sumo DL, just to try
2x295
--so much easier than conventional. Unfortunately the video cut off before anything happened.

Wide grip pull-ups
9,6,5
--don't think I ever did 9 wide-gripped before.

A few random clean and snatch attempts. I really don't know how to snatch.

I hope I didn't do too much today. Everytime I shoot my wad on DLs, I feel ruined the next session.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

How did your back feel on Sumo's? If you're that much stronger Sumo, maybe there's a benefit to pulling sumo for a while?

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

My back feels much better pulling sumo, but I think conventional is just overall better for strength. I like to do just the occasional single or double sumo. But, if my conventional form doesn't come together soon, maybe I will switch instead of being in constant risk of a hernia.

Weight 76kg. Seems high, but whatever

New gym, tried to film but kept messing it up. Nothing worth uploading.

The barbell was really fat. The trainer said it's fifty pounds, but I am going to count it forty-five. I used a squat rack for the first time, banged the bar on the pins once or twice while squatting.

LBBS
2x5x225

OHP
2x5x115

1x6x95
--the fat bar was really messing with me. Added a set to compensate for missing two reps. Sadly, 6x95 was a rep-out.

DL
1x5x265
--not too bad but form wasn't great.
1x305
--kind of easy, actually.

HBBS pause (two count)
1x10x135-same obnoxious pain in left side of mid torso.

Chins+15
5,5,5,4,3
--going for 5x5


So bored of LP, plus I haven't really increased weight in months (this i mostly attribute to my inconsistency/constantly changing gyms). Looking at a program like GZCL jacked and tan or juggernaut method to try something new.

I realized, since I am about to have to take a week off yet again, I will just run LP until christmas, then change programs in the new year.

14.12.16
Weight at girl's house, pre-movement-73.5kg
Weight at gym, post-movement-76kg.
--Wtf, not sure which one's right. Probably 73.5, smh

LBBS
1x5x245
--accidental PR. I was using these weird 40 lb plates and miscounted. I was wondering why it was so hard. The last rep felt horrible, back going slack, but i got it. Sadly, I forgot to hit the record button.
--2x5x235
--These were pretty hard also. I think I was moving too many variables in my form around. Videos are pretty useless, but you can see these squats look like ****. I know the first reps of both sets were high. In warm-ups I was going way deep and I over-corrected.
--My head really cranes when the set gets hard. I try keeping my eyes fixed, but it doesn't work. I don't know what to do about it. I'm pretty sure there's a high correlation between head craning and hips rising faster than my shoulders, too.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

16.12.17

Ate less than 2000 yesterday, and I had to wake up really early for a job interview.

Weight 75.5 kg (gym scale). Also, some guy flashed a knife at me yesterday when I was walking along. Nothing came of it, but it made me think I'd do well to look a little bigger.

Biggest joke of a session.

LBBS
--for the second day in a row, I misloaded the weight ten pounds heavier. I ended up doing (high) reps at 255, which is 5lb more than my current 1rm, so, nice going. Kind of pissed at myself, because I think it ****ed up the rest of the work out. I was high on all reps anyways.
--I was also trying to change three things at once: widen stance, use "hands-off" approach as seen in the video in the form check thread, and actively try to keep my shoulders rising at least at the same rate as my hips. This lead to some bad squats. Really cant get deep enough with the wide stance, though I think it gives me more power out of the hole (maybe only because I'm not deep enough...)
255x4
245x4
235x4
225x5
--what a joke. 225x5 was like a max effort attempt, too. I'd rather not post the vids, but hey, gotta stay accountable
--255 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InSKbtzDWHI
--245 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkObkUZKQG4

Then phone died.

OHP
125x3x3
115x5
105x6
--actually was going for 3x3, since I still don't have 2.5s.

DL
275x4f
--hitched at the very top of lockout on my fifth rep. First time I think I failed a Dl for reps.
--No idea how these looked, but we can assume badly.
225x4
--just worn out.

DB BP
2x5x60
1x6x60

I was actually bummed with my performance when leaving the gym. Get 'em next time.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

12.20.16
DOMS in biceps--why? All i did was chin-ups and a few pull-ups, and nothing I hadn't done before. Can't remember the last time I was sore there.

I think I am going to go on a two day hike up a volcano in Guatemala in about a week, so I went to the gym to make a last second effort to bring my cardiovascular strength up. Obviously, couldn't resist hitting the weights a little, too.

BB rows
135x10x3
125x10x1
--last reps a little cheaty. Probably should have used less weight.

Pull-ups (60s rest, leaving at least one rep on the bar each set)
9,5,4,2(wide), 1(wide)

OHP
135x1x2
--I can never help myself from doing random high intensity attempts with the deadlift and OHP. So retarded, really need to break the habit.
--first rep was cheaty and fast. Second rep was grindy, but I think the form was pretty good.

Rowing machine
15mins, 0.4 distance. (no idea what that means--hope it's in miles!)
--wow this is tough. Especially on my grip. Afterwards my right elbow was ON FIRE. It was much worse than my normal tendonitis, which is a dull bruise like pain that hurts when I twist my arms in certain positions. This was an acute, twisting like pain that was constant. Still hurting me an hour later. Would be so lame if I end up with an injury from my first attempt at cardio in months.
--For my later reference--the condition is called medial epicondylitis.

EDIT: Just looked at a rowing machine tutorial on youtube. Well, I was doing that completely incorrectly.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

21.12.16
weight: 73.5 kg (girls house)

Very short session at gym by my girls house before I went to the airport. Pretty hungover, bad night of sleep.

No more than 2 minute rest for each set. Nice to be in and out in 30mins

LBBS
45x5,95x5,135x3,185x3,205x1,
215x10
--Was testing my 10s range for the program I'll start in January. Honestly it was pretty tough, but every rep felt bad today. Think I'd smoke this when fresh.

Dl
135x5x2,185x3,225x2
275x2f
--Hook. Then third rep I for some reason attempted double overhand. Grip slipped past the knees.
--275x3
--mixed. I think I am going to program my DL super light. The volume is going to be way higher, and I really want to focus on producing consistent, quality reps.

Dropped a 10lb plate on my toe again. I'm like Inspector Clouseau. It's funny how I privately judge people in the gym, while I am probably the most dangerous element in there at any given time. Constantly causing calamities.

12.22.16

Another super short session, this time from Guatemala. The gym here is actually pretty great, excited to use it. Since they are closed tomorrow, I tried to get a little work in.

My toe looks disgusting, it belongs on a rotting corpse. PM for pics.

Everything 60s rest or less.

OHP
45x5
95x5
105x3
120x2+f
--Wtf. MY ohp is definitely my least predictable lift, never know what I'll be able to do. Fast warmup didn't help.
105x8
105x6
95x6
--Just all-around all-star OHP programming today.

BP
2x6x135
1x10x135
--Probably one tough rep left in me.

Not a great day in the gym. Toe still hurting, but that's no excuse.

LBBS
250x5
--hard
--head coming up.
Heres the vid: No way to judge depth, but something interesting happens in the background during rep three.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tfN25MizZwo
250x1
--I was really having a hard time with the squat rack. On the second set, I had the bar a notch lower. When I unracked, the pins above (shaped like a cresting wave), launched me backwards. Then I had the bar in a weird position, which I adjusted. For some reason I then decided to squat anyways. Worst feeling squat ever. Totally new movement pattern. Here's the vid.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=78l-hrMMcTY
250x3
--Depth questionable. Hard to tell from the angle.
--On the third rep, my butt maybe winks on the way up. It looks like I actually went down a little bit, haha. Probably my toughest rep ever. Here's the vid.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xe4BsTrGEcM

FS
up to 195x2
--Cant stop choking myself!

DL
280x5x1
--hard.
--Form is awful. Unfortunately I ran out of memory in after rep two. But they look really bad.
--Also, unlike the squat, where I have a really good feeling on a how a rep looked, I have no idea what my DL will look
like.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0OzPLmaBqYc

Sumo
315x1x2
--Wore a belt second attempt. Felt no difference. My form is also really bad, much worse than i thought it'd be, but maybe not quite as bad sus conventional. I think if I ever did anything but 1rms, I could get it alright.
--At last, after 6months of training, I pulled the same amount (sumo and with a belt) as I did in high school (conventional and sans-belt). I also weighed about 149 back then.
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DZhB1b3KUyA

Really sad I feel like my DL is a lost cause. When I start JnT, I am going to program my Dl at 275 or so. This way I'll get a ton of reps in without much work above 225. Hope it will help.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Maybe it would help if you considered only good-form reps to count when you deadlift. So you program the %ages and resets based on what you can do with passable form. And then supplement that with assistance like RDLs or good mornings that will fix your imbalances over time.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Yeah man, that's more or less the plan. I am going to do RDLs as an assistance on squat day, and alot of volume at light weights on DL day. I think SS LP is really suboptimal for someone who struggles with DL form, as it involves 7.5 reps per week at high intensity. The first week of JnT, I'll get 28+ reps in at 60% or so.

For reference, I'm still thinking on it, but my program is going to look something like:

Day 1.
I.LBBS
II. a. front Squat
b. RDL
III.(abs/curls)

Day 3
I.Deadlift
II.a HBBS
b. BB rows or chins
III. (+light back work)

The aim is to stay balanced, without neglecting my squat (which I think can handle a lot more volume than anything else)

Slow internet, will post vids later.

LBBS
235x1x2
245x1
260x1
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVNsD_ZhLl0
--looked pretty bad. Depth just at the mark. It's funny how I went from squatting naturally really deeply to now struggling with depth. Also this head is getting out of control, reminds me of the squats we did in football practice. I will be happy to reset, focus on technique, and go deeper again.

FS

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

12.28-29

Two day hike up volcano. It was the first time I felt like the weights had some carryover to life. Everyone else in my group (admittedly a fairly weak bunch) ended up using a porter, but I carried all my ****. Pretty tough hike, especially the last hour of ascent. Walking straight up really loose volcanic rock, each step I'd sink to my upper-mid shin.

12.30.16
Weight: 165 with shoes. Surprisingly high, but I'm glad.

Short session, hot guatemalan gym, no water.

Glutes and traps pretty sore from the hike.
HBBS
205x8x3
--wanted to get ten the last set, but there was just too much ***** in me. Tip forward about two inches coming out of the hole. How do I fix this?
set 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O0_T0pHl3w
set3:
LBBS
245x1
--for some reason I thought 3x8 high-bar would be a good warm-up for low-bar. It wasn't. Almost got pinned. I really need to stop spewing around like this. It reminds me of when I played poker and would take shots after booking solid sessions at my normal stakes. But I'll post the vid because I think it is a good summary of my form flaws--when grinding, back goes slack, head cranes up.

Bench
145x8x2
145x9f
--I think my 10rep pr is 145, and my 9 rep is 10, but those were done on 3x5+ sets rather than 3x8+ sets, so that probably means something. I also think I could have gotten 10, but my spotter helped. It would have been very slow.

I'll rest over the weekend, then start Jnt2.0 on monday.
