Re: Hi this is Jim Logg



Keep the shoulders in front of the bar.



But maybe not this much.



Widen your grip so the bar touches your hip crease, not your thighs.



Keep the bar right above your feet.



Nice bottom position.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Haha I had kind of posted that as a joke since I really only do olympic lifts to **** around, but this response was so helpful that it makes me want to work on my snatch more seriously. The only part I don't understand is in the 4th frame, bar over feet. To do this I guess my back needs to be extended at a pretty sharp angle, right? In any case, thanks COCKBOAT.

UHF week 1 day 4
I am loving this full-body training everyday, but man was my I feeling beat-up today. Also, this workout took me about 90mins, which is 30mins too long for me.

Spoto press
115x4x2
125x4x2
125x10
--I was supposed to do slingshot bench at 170, but my gym doesn't have any 2.5 pound plates so I am going to sub it out with spoto for the rest of the training cycle. Didn't really know where to start, but 115 was way too easy.

Pull-up ladder
to 6+6

Overhead side bends
17kgx12,8,8
--hard as F

Pause Dl
175x3x6
175x6
--pulled double overhand. Man this is such a great exercise for getting a better control of my body. Wish I'd been doing these earlier. I definitely am starting with my hips too low some reps, at a higher weight that's surely going to cause some jerking motions (at the least).
--I don't know what sets these are, or even the order. My phone deleted some, but at least I know why now (memory).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1GSxIVK0vI
--also: Does my lockout look a little soft some reps? I'm trying not to **** the bar, as BPA told me I was doing.

Dips
BWx12,12,7,8,6

Hip Ab/ad
6barsx15x5 both ways

Preacher Curl
42.5x12,6,6,6,4
--way harder than I imagined it would be. Thought this would be a easy 15x5

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

A wider grip will help, you can do some high pulls to drill the movement.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Oh I see. Thanks again man, I might try them out again on wednesday.

3.31.17

Last night I ate less than 2100 calories, drank 5 beers, smoked about 15 cigarettes and got 3 hours of sleep. I've done 4 full body workouts in a row. Today I woke up with the worst doms i've had since the very early days. I was especially sore in my obliques and lats from the overhead barbell side bends (I think). I don't know how but all of this conspired to give me two pretty significant front squat PRs today. Really I think it was just my body catching up from the fact that I haven't focused on front squats for the entire year.

UHF week 1, day 5
Front Squat
185x4x2
185x9
--I didn't video the AMRAP because these girls were doing this crazy circuit workout all around me. I stopped when I felt my back collapse abit. Easily had 2-3 more if I wanted to be a dip****.
--set 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6CbQCX6I4c
---Obviously I am rushing the descent too much. You can see how I kick forward a bit out of the hole on reps 3 and 4.

CGBP
125x10x3
125x8,2
--the fifth day of pressing caught up to me. I racked on the 8th rep of set 4 and rested about 15s.

I plan to use this day normally to do ab rollouts, good mornings, and db lunges, but I am going climbing tomorrow so I didn't want to exhaust my self too much. So I just did a few more front squats.

Front Squat
205x1
225x1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpM7H8Ou0ZA
235x1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8-pcLgmWI0
--+10lb PR, although it was the first time I'd done any reps over 195lbs in four months.

Then I just practiced with getting the bar tight on my back to help with my low bar. This led to me doing two no hand squats.

No hand squats
135x1x2
https://youtu.be/AJ2Ge77h0FU
--Don't think I made it all the way to the hole without some thoracic rounding.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

4.1.17

Went bouldering at a rock climbing gym. Pretty fun, I've actually was pretty good, but it was all from just being able to muscle my way up. If you saw someone actually free climbing that way, you'd think to yourself "that man has seconds to live".

Also did some ab wheel and this awesome wall where you pull your self up using these wooden sticks that you have to keep sticking in different holes. I guess it's to train piton climbing.

Wouldn't mind going once/week. Great supplementary work for grip, back, core and conditioning.

4.3.17
Only been eating about 2500 calories and sleeping about 4 hours a night. It and all the work I did last week caught up to me today. Squats were ****.

UHF week 2 day 1
Everything supersetted:

LBBS
245x1
245x3x3
245x5
--awful. didn't remember how to brace until set 3. Banged the bar on the pins during warmups and it ****ed up my depth the rest of the time. On the amrap, the right plates were a little off center and my balance was off. Should have reracked. Was hoping to get 7+ at this weight. Vid uploading.

Pinch hold
25lbx30s,29s,28s,28s

Incline
95x8x4

Chins
+10x8,8,6,4,3
--LOL.

Plank

Quad extensions

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

4.4.17

Came in with forty minutes today and I did this:

UHF week 2 day2
Bench
175x3x4
--supersetted with facepulls. zero'd the AMRAP, but I wasn't taking any rest

PAuse Squat
195x2x8
--Supersetted with OHP
87.5x13,6,6,6,5

Kroc Rows
100x2x2
--stupid I know but I was operating under a principal of "not a minute wasted."

Then my work was canceled anyways, so I went to a calisthenics park. This occurred about an hour later. The pull-up bar was very fat, and the dip bars were very wide, which made for a new challenge.
Supersetted:
Pull-ups
11,9,7,6,5

Dips
10,8,8,5,6

Then I laddered both to 5 so that I could get over 50reps for the day.

weight: 74.5-76kg (line kept moving). Don't know how I gained 2.5-4 kg overnight, but I'll take it.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Been traveling along the colombian coast. 8 days without lifting, but I did hike at least 10 miles at least 4 times, mostly with a heavy pack. Not sure on my weight, been eating/drinking alot, but hiking is pretty calorically expensive, especially when carrying a backpack.

Dip/Chin ladder

4.16
--this girl I met invited me to her nice hotel in Cartagena. They had a gym but it was trash:cable machine and dbs up to 20lb. On the bright side, the girl asked me if I had been to medellin to get a silicone injection. My eyes welled. So proud of my glutes!

Gym in Santa Marta. It was pretty good, except a squat rack with fixed pins.people there actually lift--saw an old man (50+) bench 100kgx6. Nothing crazy, but probably the 2nd unassisted 2plate bench I've seen in colombia.

Squatting in hiking boots was kind of scary, but not bad.
A.
LBBS
--just went by feel. Boots+out of practice

--one of these I did high bar, since I would bang the top pins when unracking out of the bottom ones. But 3 reps in, I got the oblique pain that I only ever get during Highbar, so I adjusted to lowbar midset, just like Rippetoe recommends.
225x8
--felt harder than it looked on vid. But I felt I was loading my back too much, so I unracked. Sure enough, knees slide back reps 7,8.
video, awful angle. It looks like my hips dont fully extend, dunno. The unrack was so perilous because I couldn't fully extend without banging the top pins.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

4.18.17

Found another great gym in a weird place. This one had a space to flip tires and a trap bar dl, so I got to do some things I never do, like trap bar jumps (how's my form: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xc8OYxDqmik ).If it had bumpers and a power rack instead of a squat rack, it'd be more or less ideal.

The athletic shorts I brought are in the wash, so I rolled up in hiking boots and a bathing suit. This drew laughs from three women in the cardio area. I didn't care, I knew they'd shut their mouths as soon as they saw me deadlifting 100kg+.

However, the suit was messing with my mobility, so i switched back to khakis.

Sumo Dl
120kgx2x2
120kgx1+f
--my grip is failing all the time, so frustrating. The fact that it was an outdoor gym in a semi-jungle didn't help, but goddamn. I think I could squat 120x2x5 on most days, so it's pretty lame. Then for the first time I supinated my left (non-dominate) hand, which seems to be the norm for everyone but me. It helped.
120kgx2x2
120kgx3
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ru_1UafimJo
--I don't think my form is too terrible here, except my hips rise. Actually, I guess my form is pretty bad still, but at least it seems nearly safe. Grip slipped on the eccentric of the third rep, you can see how I almost knocked my knee caps down into my shins.

A.
Incline press
50kgx6
55kgx6x3
55kgx10
Conventional DL
100kgx6 (standing from a 10kg plate deficit)
120kgx1
--I think my dl is getting a bit better, deficits looked pretty smooth, and my back softened just a tad on the 265. Going to continue to just do a lot of back work and keep heavy pull volume very low. It seems to be working, and deadlifts tax me pretty badly anyways. As of right now I'd rather lift frequently, and too much Dling would wreck that.
Chins

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

4.26.17

It takes so long to set up for dl that I ran short on time, as I was meeting a friend. Pretty lame workout.

In post 210 I said my conv. dl was getting better--NOPE. I pulled conventional because I didn't want to drop another plate on my foot with my annoying set-up. However, my form sucks, so i just did the last set sumo from a very small block.

Conv DL
255x2x4
--standing on plates to negate the blocks
--I am now 90% that the weakness is in my erectors. I was looking great up to 235x1x2, but then my back started to slacken. See that I am rolling back a bit, I think this is me trying to get my quads more involved.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eICdPL5-SgA
Sumo dl
--from very small block, about an inch or two. Regardless, so much better, especially first rep. I am starting a bit behind the bar, which causes my hips to rise a little.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quK_TV4n248

I am thinking about trying out some kind of ROM progression for conventional DL. My idea is to start with one set of block pulls, then proceed with working sets of sumo from the floor. The next week, I'll start off with block pulls for the same weightxreps, but from a bit lower. Who knows, it might work. At the worst, I'll just get some extra upper back work in. either way, will continue doing conv pause DL 1xweek at light weights as well.

Legs up bench
135x6x3
135x11
--had 1-2 more

BB Rows
135x6x2

Those pulls look good imo, much improved from a while back. Fwiw I also like to pull with a pretty narrow stance.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Thanks, we'll have to see how it goes. I still have a long way to go. Kind of strange that my lumbar seems most stable when my toes are out to the plates, or (apparently) when my heels are almost touching. Everything in between is a disaster.

^I realized that the common denominator for these two stances is that my knees are extended outwards.

5.2.17

On the weekend I ate and rested well. Then unfortunately the gym was closed for labor day. So instead I went to a party, ended up eating less than 2k calories, plus the 7+ drinks I had. Not the best session today. But at least I clocked in under an hour.

Weight: 70.5kg The scale is trolling me.

255x1x4
255x3
255x2
--Not great, but I was only taking 60-90s rests. For some reason I monkey gripped the AMRAP top set, and it was really uncomfortable. So I reracked, rested 30s, and did two more.
--Unusually, I had some knee valgus in these reps. I think that it was because my stance was wider than normal, and last week I actually had some knee varus (cf. my front squat video), so I was not actively trying to keep them out.
--One thing that I can say I am happy about is that on the last rep I got a bit flattened, but my back stayed stable.

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

5.3.17

I didn't mention but I will be returning to the states in a few days to work my seasonal job. It's too bad, as my time in Colombia has been a happy period of my life, but it'll be a practical move.

Anyways, I drank a lot of aguardiente last night, felt a little woozy coming into the gym.

Weight 72kg, but I weighed a 45lb plate, and it said 19kg, so I think we can add a kilo or too. I'll try to gain some weight this summer. The only things I look forward to in trumpland are the greater variety of food and the prospect of a gym without warped floors. I am pretty certain that my squat's developed an imbalance after all those walkouts on uneven floors.

I'm flying back saturday, because the gym was closed monday I think I'll just merge the day4 and 5 workouts.

UHF week 4, day 2
Whole workout finished in 58mins, including warm-ups.
Experiment with RPE, don't know if these numbers will mean too much.

Bench
175x1x4
175x3 @9.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooc0jxo8uFI
DB row

Paloff
5barsx12x4
--my bench is regressing a bit, nothing to worry about too much, but my technique is getting sloppy, too.
--initially I tried to take no rest in this superset, but the second 175 single was so slow, so I started taking 90-120s after paloffs.
--I also dropped my db row reps, since it was affecting bench too much. Doing smooth, strict sets to @8 or so to match bench sets, then finishing with a burnout set seems like the move.

--only rest was resetting the weights. Obviously both suffered for that but oh well. Banged the **** out of the pins on the 6th rep of the last squat set.

Weight 72kg.

Felt a bit stiff around my right erector. Didn't want to even try fooling with conventional

295x1 @8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEo-ns17JV8
295x1 @8.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbwsZ-9zlH0 best pull in my opinion
295x3@9.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQC3-TsBL2c I don't know what happened on the third lockout. Got caught on my knees, I guess?
--from a block about a half-inch high, but I was wearing olympic shoes so more or less the same I guess.
--on the first single, I started abit loose then yanked it. I see in all the side videos I am starting a little low. The second single felt great mechanically, though it was hard to break the floor. I'd like to get my shins a bit more vertical every set.
--used chalk and could hook grip. helped so much.

--the big gap in x5@8.5 to 11 last reps comes partially from underestimating myself, but also from the fact that I rested a bit more and made a big technical change

--Always avoided these since I thought it'd be bad to go into flexion, but the incline was so steep that keeping my back straight was trivial

Re: Hi this is Jim Logg

Well I realized that my arch in legs-up is way less, but I was still touching around my sternum. Last set I touched higher on my chest. I also brought my grip in just a bit, so that my hands were straight over my wrists. Maybe calling it a "big" change was too much, but it felt like the difference was big.

Nice. Small changes can make a big difference.

5.5.17

Merged two days of work-outs. Predictably, it sucked.

UHF week 4 day 4/5

Front Squat
207.5x1x4@7.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dJUeF3XKM8
207.5x5@9 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rkgy8v4FsiQ
--singles were great, amrap was sloppy

OHP
127.5x1@9
127.5x2@9.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIijcE_JRdA
x1@9.5
x1@9.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRRxIgxf6YQ
--warming up for push-press. I was surprised how easy it was. Filmed a double--too much hip hinge iMO. So I did two more reps strict.

A.
Push Press
161.8x1@9
x1@9
xf
--more of a technical failure than anything else, but still felt it prudent to drop weight.
151.8x1@9
x1@8.5
x3@9.5
Chins
backpack+25 (at least ~30)
5,3,5,3,4

DL
3x5x225
--was supposed to be 5x5 but it was just too hard, so I did some block pulls from the knee.

Block pull
285+x8
--99% that it was over 285, I was using these mystery plates that had to be at least 30lbs.

DB bench
60sx8,8,7,5
Curls
3x12
