I realized that part of my problem is that I'm doing too much each day and taking too long with my workouts. But I don't want to decrease the volume and intensity of the exercises; I like aiming for 10,000 lbs. upper body and 15,000 lbs. lower body. I decided that I should just do 1 exercise per day, alternating between upper and lower body. This will give me adequate rest and let me go as hard as I want:

Day 1: Squat
Day 2: Press
Day 3: Front Squat
Day 4: Bench
Day 5: Deadlift
Day 6: Incline Bench

There won't be any pressure to get in all 6 each week. That means that, week-to-week, there will be some variety in the exercises that I actually perform but each exercise complements the others.
Good luck. Go get it.

I was going to squat on Saturday, but my dumb gym closed earlier than usual, which I wasn't prepared for. Then I didn't want to squat Sunday b/c I'm trying out the new Westside gym and they have off on Sunday. Figured it would be best to take an extra couple days out for recovery.

If I can afford to stay at this new place, I'm going to start a new log. For now, I'll just incorporate the Westside workouts into my current log, although they're very different from what I've been doing.

Default Monday, 3/11: Dynamic Effort Bench

Speed Bench

Setup
  • fat bar (55 lbs.)
  • red bands (light tension, I think)
  • Tendo unit (target between 0.7 - 0.9. I don't know what the units are)

9 x 3 x (145/105/125 x 7)

DB Incline Bench
3 x 10-12 x (55/50/50)

Seated Cable Row
3 x 10-12 x (110/100/100)

Tate Press
3 x 15 x 10

Upper-Body Sled Pull
3 x ~40 yards x 105 lbs.

No volume measurements since I'm not really in charge of planning the routine. This is my first time benching with bands, and it was a great training session. I tried to do each set the way I saw Louie Simmons explain it on YouTube, which is "bangbangbang!," so no pauses at the chest. I don't feel like I was bouncing either, but this will just be something to be aware of for next time. The fat bar was awkward at first! My trainer for today told me that Louie told him that he should change grips every 3 sets: close, medium, and wide. Another thing to remember for next time.

Everything else was standard except for the sled. You "pull" it, but the movement is like a bench press. This just absolutely kicked my ass! I must've looked so completely pathetic on my last lap, and yes, there were other gym people out front conversing, and probably watching! It was a good kind of pathetic, though. It's hard for me to describe, but it was positive. I am so determined to improve on these sled pulls. I can't wait to attack it again.

I posted some other stuff about the gym here.

dude, a big part of why i'm psyched about this place is your log. you're always doing these cool variations and using equipment that i want to try out but can't at my regular commercial gym. so thank you for being hardcore haha
