The votes are in. Pendlays it is. WIll only be doing them once every fortnight, but hey. They're still a good lift, it seems.


Week 5 Day 3 - Shoulders & Biceps (Density mode)

Strict Press: 60kg (132lbs) x 9,2,2,3,3,2,3 rest pause (24/30) -> *time for a reset - maybe to 55kg (121lbs)*

Upright Row: 50kg (110lbs) x 10,3,2,4,5,5,5 rest pause (34/30) -> *up 1.25kg (2.75lbs) next time*

Barbell Curl: 45kg (99lbs) x 10,4,3,3,4,5,4 rest pause (33/30) -> *up 1.25kg (2.75lbs) next time*

Dip: (bodyweight) x 15,10,7 (1 min. rest between sets)

Wide Grip Lat Pulldown: (the stack) x a couple of sets -> *had some time to kill *


Yay, there's a place to do dips again. It's been quite a while. I've missed them! They're awesome!

Might even add some weight to them next time.

Thanks Ancrel, Nath.

Yeah, I love dips. Forgotten how much until today. They really stretch the shoulders and chest, as well as smashing the triceps like no other lift.

As for pressing, it's less reps than I got last time. But that's okay - I know the strict press is just like that, for a lot of people. Time to reset, get some crazy reps going, and move on up from there.

Bit of a problem.

My lifts haven't improved much, or in some cases at all, during the last 8 months or so.

Yeah. I hadn't realised how serious this issue was, but I just checked some numbers from February, and some other months since then.

Shit.

Granted, this has been a very difficult year, to put it mildly. Even so, I would hope that each year might bring more gains that I've had from this one.

I suspect it's a combination of things, but switching routines all the time probably hasn't helped a lot.

I feel stupid. And pissed off. But just to be clear, I'm not fishing for sympathy or even advice. Just had to get this off my chest. And I'll keep on lifting, and stick with the routine I'm doing for a good while (as long as it works, or seems to, anyway).


tl;dr: FML (not really, but this year, yeah - kinda).

As you said sticking with a routine may help, but your lifting great weights and your volume is really good.

Maybe its a few small changes that is all that's needed to get the momentum going again, some of the more experienced lifters will help there.

Keep at it and keep eating i'm sure you will progress through this and put a bad year behind you!

THanks guys. And, will be sending you a PM, Mr. Bearded Beast. Not to start a stream of hassling you endlessly, but just in case there's something I haven't thought of, or whatever. Cheers.


Week 5 Day 4 - Legs (Strength mode)

Squat: 8 sets of 3 @ 130kg (286lbs)

And then a bunch of hack squats, which didn't feel right. So some front squats and high bar squats after that.

Finished off with hanging pike: 3 sets of 10, supersetted with back extension: 3 sets of 10, holding a 15kg (33lbs) plate.


Despite how I've been feeling, was determined to get the squats done, most of all. That's the "core" of every Day 4, for sure.
