Maybe you were eating too little and doing too much cardio. Who knows. Ride it out though!

I don't think mankind will ever be able to figure out how the body really works. I plateaued on my cut for 2 weeks for no apparent reason.

Perhaps the stress relief when stopping to try to lose had something to do with it. At any rate, solid lifting and eat well!

Nice numbers Kuyt ... That dropping in the wt. may be because of you new schedule. You are doing quite a no. of exercises and reps in a single session ... keep going brother ...

To be honest Steve, I could go below 170 since I'm still carrying in and around 15% bf (ok it's an estimate but almost all my fat is centralised in the very centre of my stomach and that pisses me off ) I'm not going to ai for anything really weight wise, I'm just going to eat sensibly and continue training and see what happens.

Thanks Jim. The human body is a mystery.

Thanks for dropping in Ravi, didn't think you had time between eating and smashing PRs


Trying to figure out if Faz is a genius or a sadist (The best coaches are probably both
3x12 on compounds is said to be novice type training but I've noticed that in all the gyms I've been in, not one what I would call novice or even early intermediate does such training. I have also only seen a handful of people squat to depth for 3 plates or deadlift more than 4 plates for dead stop reps so this is hardly a coincidence.
I avoided high reps like this too, like the plague, and it did me no bloody good! Few people do it because it's bloody difficult! This makes it apparent (to me at least) that it must be a good form of training (so I guess Faz is a genius after all )
I notice guys who are either at my not very high strength level or even below doing tricep kickbacks and other various isolation exercises and I know they will have many years of frustrating lack of progress. I don't want to be that guy!

As for training, I'm getting the reps and form is good even during the last couple of reps but as I said, it certainly is not easy. On Monday, I did some sprints (only 4 in my local park to test the waters) and some bodyweight work with push ups, crunches and bodyweight squats and ab wheel. Mainly to get off my arse and away from the desk.

Tuesday
Squats 60kg - 3 x 12
SLDL 60kg - 3 x 12
Bench 50kg - 3 x 12
Row 40kg - 3 x 12
OHP 30kg - 3 x 12
Chins - 7, 7, 6 - 20 reps - Sets done during the session.

Thursday
Squats 60kg - 3 x 12
SLDL 62.5kg - 3 x 12
Bench 52.5kg - 3 x 12
Row 40kg - 3 x 12
OHP 32.5kg - 3 x 12
Chins - 8, 7, 6 - 21 reps - Sets done during session

Sticking at 60kg with squats for Sunday, SLDL is going well as is the bench and OHP is going ok. Need to drop to 35kg for Row as I'm not happy with form and need to stop allowing my elbows to go out during reps. Chins are grinders but I'm adding a rep or two here and there.
It's dawned on me that getting to even 110kg x 5 beltless for squats will take quite a while. Just as well then that I'm patient!

Fazc is lots of things Haha

I am also of the opinion nowadays that repwork is necessary to get stronger. JB is having me do some very high reps on some exercises to get the blood flowing, which I never used to do.

There are plenty of strong homosexuals you know

Today would be week 3 session 2. Form is good, paying special attention to the last few reps on each exercise where form can go awry if you let it. The exception is the row where I have allowed the elbows to flare out the last 2 sessions.

There should be orchestral music denoting a sense of foreboding with that statement!
I am happy to do this 3x12 for as long as is necessary btw.
