That's exactly where I am...you'll see in my log, going to add 2 conditioning days to my 3 strength days beginning next week.

Good luck!

Thanks for the optimism man. My only concern is loss of strength/muscle from caloric deficit and majority conditioning w/o's. My diet and food choices are pretty sound ~80% of the time. I am dedicated to the cause though. I will definitely check up on your log.

No work out today, but helped my brother in law move today. Ended up being a workout anyway. Felt good to out perform guys 10 years my junior...ha ha. Bigger, stronger, and faster - right?!!

Loss of some strength is a reality when cutting...consider it success to maintain strength under those conditions.

Ha, we are on the same wavelength....i was helping a neighbor move yesterday too!

Bigger, stronger, and faster!

Default Another Squat Rep PR

So squat day today after a much needed day off. Didn't sleep enough last night...only got about 5.5 - 6 hrs. Felt somewhat sluggish throughout the w/o, but pushed through it and ended up having a really good one!! Will be dragging my ass all day though.

Squats (lbs):

BW x 10 plus some upper body, ankle, knee and core w/up and mobility.
125 x 6 plus some upper body, ankle, knee and core w/up and mobility.
175 x 6
225 x 3
275 x 2
work sets: 300 x 7,7,7 REP PR (added 1 rep per set)
back off sets: 225 x 10, 175 x 15 (these burned pretty good)

finisher circuit:
speed squat: 125 x 8, 8, 8
cable row: 115 x 12, 12, 12
DB incline: 50's x 12, 12, 12
BTN WGPull downs: 115 x 12, 12, 12

~75 min including w/up and cool down.

Default Thanks for the tips on elbow pain

Just wanted to thank you guys for the tips, a week or two ago, regarding elbow pain when I squat. I did more of a warm up on my upper body and arms today. Also, adjusted my grip with my arms and went a lot wider. Guess what - NO PAIN!!

Thanks SecondsOut. The back off sets pretty much jellyfied my legs...The speed squats weren't too bad since the weight was much lighter. The next squat sessions will be getting a lot harder from here on in. The 8, 9, and 10 reps per set are tough for me. Goal is to just progress even if it's one rep at a time.

Quick conditioning w/o today ~ 40 min:

Hang snatch (below knee): 75x6,6 100x6,6 125x3 + 3 hang clean & press
Leg raises: 10,10,12,12,15
DB shoulder press: 30's x 10,10 40's x 10,10 50's x 8
Deficit RDL's: 150 x 6,6 180 x 6,6 210 x 6

Could've/wanted to do more, but my son really wanted to w/o with me (he loves doing circuits with me). So did a couple rounds of 4 exercises (30 sec on - 10 sec rest). Again, we could've/wanted to do more, but were short on time this morning (had to get ready for school).
