When words like stroke and heart attack get thrown around in a hospital room, well let's just say that's not pleasant, even if they are being ruled out. (This time at least.)

As people have pointed out diet and better decisions overall will probably get things under control. I won't be seeing the nutrionist again though. That's not covered by insurance and is too expensive to follow up with (that's America folks! Nothing preventative is covered, but a heart attack? fully covered. ), but she gave me some good ideas to work with so we'll see how it goes. I already feel better just eating better for a week, so I got back to business today.

Haha. Really didn't help that it was squats where I had my problem! I already have a little mental block with them and have been a little leery of getting back under the bar, but today went pretty well considering.

I've decided to drop the old school linear for now and go back to fullbody which is when I felt the healthiest and most fit. Also, I don't think I ever gave the rep goal scheme a fair shake, so I'm going to give that a shot and see what happens over the next month or so.

SUpposed to be easing into it this week, but started squats maybe a bit too high and CGBP and Sumo maybe a bit too low. Still, it'll shake out well enough as I go along.

Day 1, week 1:

warmups: hip and leg stuff and lower mobility, JR, and some height jumps from squat position

Squat:
315x 1 (confidence booster)
245x 8, 6, 5 (goal 20, stay here, maybe even drop it a little)

CGBP:
185x 11, 9, 9 (goal 20, add weight)

Sumo:
205x 8, 8, 6 (goal 20, add weight)

Plank: 65 sec.

Some fullbody stretching and that was it for today. I'll get the sled out next week OR! Got a plan for that for sure.

315:
315 - YouTube
245x 8:
245x 8 - YouTube
185x 11, damn kids! :
185x 11 CGBP - YouTube
185x 9, great song, so I rushed last set, wanted 30. Bitter.
185x 9 CGBP - YouTube
205x 8, camera cut out:
205x 8 - YouTube

Felt good to get back at it and the tunes were awesome today! That helped.

Decent session. Onward and upward.

A couple questions for you guys who have done the MAB fullbody.

Do you use a belt on the squat rep goal sets? I could have made all the reps easy if I used a belt, but not sure I want to. Thoughts on that will be appreciated.

Also it says on deadlifts to ramp three sets in order to hit 8 reps. How does that work? Would it be a problem if I just kept the sets as a 20 rep goal? I have been liking volume on deads recently. What do you think?

Thanks fellas! Back in business. Let's hope it stays that way.
Great work Mike! Glad your back at it with a new plan and diet! Think in a short time you'll be crushing everything including that F€%|*£€ piece o s%]£ 4+ dead, that's haunted you !!!

Awesome to see you back moving the iron again Mike! I like the idea of doing a heavy single and then the working sets at a lower weight - like OR trains. Did doing so make the 245 sets feel lighter for you?

On squats, I would always wear a belt. I mean why not? If equipment is legal at a meet, why not use it regularly in training? I am also getting knee wraps. If they help on squat and are legal, then I am in.

On deads, I would just ramp up as usual and/or be instinctive about it, depending on what feels better and/or works for you.

Will echo the sentiment again, Glad your Alright and back moving the Iron Mike
I Grilled up 8 Ribeyes & 12 Chicken Breasts last night and thought of what you went through recently. I looked at all that Red meat on the Platter and a wave of guilt came over me.
Cure for guilt; Deadlifts

Keep throwing the Iron around!

Haha. I don't think it was the red meat that did me in! Too much coffee and beer and way too many oversize meals seem to be a lot more likely! And yep, the cure for guilt is deadlifts! Hit some today OMP.

Good point Jimbo. I think what I will do is not use a belt on the first set at first, but use it on the other two and see what happens as I go forward.

Thanks fellas, I'm getting back into the swing of things. Another decent day today, a couple hiccups, but there you go nothing major I don't think.

Day 2, week 1

warmups: Swings and some reverse hypers

Front Squat:
1x 205 (fairly easy and I haven't done these in ages)
3x 3x 165

OHP:
1x 150
125x 5, 8, 5 (terrible first set as you'll see, not a good press day. SHould have warmed up better probably)

Deadlift:
1x 315*
250x 9, 5, 5 (reps not met, but with a caveat)

Back yoga and fullbody stretches to finish.

205:
165x 3:
Awful first OHP set with 125:
315:
250x 8, wasn't keeping count and was shocked it was so many watching it after!:

So, pretty pleased all in all. 210 is my best front squat and I could have easily got over that today if that was the goal. OHP is likely just a one off. Poor warmup, no belt, wasn't concentrating, whatever. Not worried about it.

On deadlifts, I was watching a Jesse Burdick video and he said he always gets tight standing up as you cannot get really tight breathing in while bent over. Well, one of my problems is tightness, so I gave it a try and I do like it! You can set your back and lock yourself in, then set your hips pulling yourself down to the bar, and when you feel the weight, just boom and go.

I certainly could have got the required reps, but this is a new set up, so I just wanted to lock it in with good form and not press progression just yet. Hence the 5 reppers. I'm not going to rush this, I really think I am close to figuring out exactly what I need to do to pull properly.

And this is a build up week anyway. No sense pushing too hard. Hot as blazes in my garage and I was gassed by the end as it is.

Still, there you go onward and upward.

I'll have some time tonite to check out all your logs. I've been slacking there, but will catch up soon.

Great work Mike! Deads looked really good and glad they felt good for you! Why do you do OHP before deads, just curious? I consider deads a much more demanding lift than OHP, but maybe that's just me! Keep working hard!!!

I think one problem was having Bon Jovi on. This can reduce testosterone by up to 40%.

Also, it looked to me as if you went straight from unracking to pressing that first rep. This never works for me. I have to unrack it, back away, come to a standstill, plant my feet, tense everything up, breathe in, hold my breath and THEN press. This probably takes me two seconds at most, but unless I'm pressing from a stable platform I never do very well.

Just a thought.
