Way to go!
GPP and calisthenics...it must be in the air!

I'm too far behind on my BB work for it now though.

Default Friday, 6/14

Thanks guys

Deadlift
10 x 135
8 x 225
3 x 315
2 x 365

3 x 5 x 315

Incline Bench
2 x 10 x bar (1 medium grip, 1 close grip)
8 x 95
4 x 135
2 x 175

5 x 8 x 135

I'm in a rut -- life in general -- and it's impacting my motivation to lift. I'll never quit, and I've never even thought of quitting since I started, but I'm not in top mental form right now. Had a bad day today. Lifting usually cures the negativity, but everything took so much effort today, and I just wasn't feeling it. I actually felt like I was gonna vomit and pass out, which is very unusual for me.
Strength is down in deadlift. Makes sense because I haven't been pulling often. Still, I couldn't believe how heavy 315 felt and how sore my hams felt.
135 was surprisingly easy on incline, which I haven't been training much. So yeah, I felt good about that.
The only thing that feels great, though, is getting stronger on squat and deadlift, and it's just not happening right now.

This happens to me from time to time. It almost always has to do with fluid intake and not getting enough calories. Nice work getting one in though

Default Monday, 6/24

Incline Bench
2 x 10 x bar (1 set medium grip, 1 set close)
8 x 110
4 x 145
2 x 160
1 x 175

4 x 4 x 155

Dip
8-6-4-8-6-4

Bench
5 x 15 x (95/95/95/85/85)

First day back after a 1-week layoff. I'm following a different routine. I started with Pavel's 80/20 and made some changes:
  • Instead of 5x5 for the heavy days, I'm using 4x4, 3x3, and 2x2
  • On the heavy days, I'm lifting a bit lighter to accommodate some assistance work
Before the layoff, I was building toward a peak, but instead of gaining strength, I was losing strength. I had no faith in what I was doing, and I felt burned out mentally. I want to lose some weight. I'm currently 180 lbs., down from 185, and I want to drop to 165. I'm not in any rush to do this, but I want to begin reducing calories.
I don't understand why, but calisthenics and weight loss go hand-in-hand for me. I don't know if it actually helps me lose weight, but I know that one way I can tell if I'm on the right track is if I start quickly adding reps to pullup workouts.
My workout plan (for the main lifts) is attached. It's the right-hand section with the headings "Part1," "Part 2," "h," "l," and "Assistance." The "Parts" are really just different weeks. The "h" and "l" is the progression I'll follow for heavy and light days. The Assistance stuff will be lighter with higher reps, and there will be more variety of set/rep ranges.
Today was a low drama workout; I went a bit easier since it's my first day back.
