Default Reverse Pyramid Training

Friday, 5/24/13



Bench Press 4 x 3-5 RPT

235 x 4
230 x 4
225 x 4
220 x 4


Incline Bench Press 3 Sets, Rep Goal = 18

185 x 6, 4, 4 ... -5 lbs here, something doin' with these lately



Weighted Triangle Chin Up 3 Sets, Rep Goal = 18

BW+42.5 x 7, 6, 5 ... +2.5 lbs Any progression here is always a PR



Weighted Chest Dip 4 x 4-6 RPT

BW+95.0 x 5
BW+82.5 x 7 ... -2.5 lbs <--There is a story behind this subtraction, lol
BW+82.5 x 6 ... +2.5 lbs
BW+75.0 x 6 ... +2.5 lbs



No progress with bench today, but no regression either, so it's a wash

Incline has got me by the nose hairs, I can't seem to get settled on a grip width. I came in a bit with my grip for the last set and it felt easier than the one before it, so I guess I will start with that width next time and see what happens. I did stupidly fail on rep 5 of the last two sets of bench, so maybe that fatigued me a bit.

Okay, so I wrap up my first set of dips, and who calls to say that they just pulled up out front, but a friend I haven't seen in nearly ten years. He lives in Florida now, and doesn't get up this way much. Anyway, I wasn't gonna let his visit put an end to my session, so I continued to dip while we shot the $hit, lol. Because of his arrival, I forgot to put a 5 lb plate on the dip belt for the second set and ended up doing 82.5 instead of 87.5.

So, I finished dipping, then we went out for a burger and a couple beers, and no, I didn't shower beforehand, lol. What? I don't stink. Shoot, I didn't even break a sweat.




Thank you, come again

Gonna do my best to do just that. Thanks for the support!




Sunday, 5/26/13
Fasted Training: 10g BCAAs




Standing Military Press 4 x 6-8 RPT

140 x 7 ... +1
140 x 6
140 x 6 ... +1
135 x 6 ... +5 lbs



Back Squat 3 x 2; 2 x 4-6 RPT

315 x 2, 2, 3 ... +5 lbs
295 x 4
285 x 5 ... +1



Weighted WGPU 3 Sets, Rep Goal = 18

BW+30 x 7, 6, 6 ... +2


Okay, nice progression today!

Rep three in the last squat set had me on my toes at the bottom, where I quickly shifted my weight back towards my heels as I headed up. The rest of the way up was an epic grinder, lmao.

I was really getting a bit worried about OHP in the past few weeks, I seemed to be regressing with them. Today's progress with them makes me super happy.


Enjoy the long weekend, to those who get one, and remember to honor the fallen, however you choose to do so.







Thank you, come again

Deadlift 2 x 5 <-- Changed from 3 x 5

Raw with chalk, o/u

375 x 5 x 2 ... +10 lbs ... - 1 set



Weighted Chin Up 3 x 4-6 RPT

BW+60.0 x 6 ... +1 ... Rep PR
BW+60.0 x 6 ... +2.5 lbs ... Wow, I matched the previous set's PR, lol
BW+52.5 x 6 ... +1



Pendlay Row 3 x 5

235 x 5 x 3 ... +5 lbs



Front Squat 3 x 8

205 x 8 ... +1 Rep PR
205 x 8 ... +2 ... Wow, another match of the previous set's PR, lol
205 x 6 ... +1



Super pleased with today's progress!

I dropped a set of deadlifts because I am in a constant daily caloric deficit now, and I don't want to burn out.

The first set of chins was stuck @ 5 reps since 4/24, it finally budged!!

I am not sure what to do about the Pendlays, there is such a fine line between just enough, and too much english. I may actually start doing BORs for a while.

I am surprised at my front squat progress, lol, I almost went for 8 reps in the last set but decided to leave well enough alone.


Okay, last week I decided to stop cycling carbs and calories, after doing so for over a year, and just do a straight daily deficit of about 100 calories. I am shooting for a minimum of 200g P and 65g F, and filling in the rest with whatever, but mainly carbs.

I have been doing steady calories for a solid week now (although Wed - Sat was at a slight surplus while I was camping), and I think my water weight has leveled out, leaving me @ 166 lbs as of this morning.


Stay tuned for Thursday's workout, where I will more than likely change something up



Thank you, come again

There's your problem, you "only" row 235! Maybe keep tweaking things and you'll be where you want with strength and leannneeessss.
