Default Jude's Training Log

Hello everyone. I will start to keep a log on this forum. Please feel free to post comments, suggestions, recommendations, etc.

I will follow John Christy's routines. I will start with his 2 day a week program.

Today I went to the gym at work. Convenient when I get a chance to go.

Squats: 2 sets x 5 reps x 345 lbs, 1 x 3 x 345
Flat Bench: 3 sets x 5 reps x 255 lbs
Prone Row: 3 sets x 6 reps x pin 10 (200 lbs ?)
Romanian Deadlift: 1 set x 10 reps x 225 lbs
Calf Raise: 1 set x 10 reps x 200
Crunch: 1 set x 10 reps x 18 lbs
Reverse curl: 1 x 10 x 20 lbs

From start to finish, including a shower, I was done in 90 minutes.

Good start. Really looking forward to seeing your thoughts on Christy's routine.

Default Thanks

I appreciate your posts. I revisit the articles in Christy's book from time to time. I learn something new and a point that I missed before sinks in when I read it a second time. I have his technique videos too. I like his signature line "real programs for people with real lives" or something to that effect. I "think" I have good form on the Squat, Sumo Deadlift, OHP, and bench. I do not have a video camera to post videos.
The goal is to work out twice a week for 52 weeks, I will start micro loading next week.

Default Saturday's Workout

10 minute warm up on elliptical

Trap Bar Deadlift: 320lbs x 4, 370 lbs x 5, 2 sets
Standing Shoulder Press: 155 lbs x 5 x 2, 155 x 3 x 1
Supra Bar Curl: 95 x 6 x 3
Close Grip Bench: 210 lbs x 5 x 2
BNS Wrist Roller: 35 lbs x 5 x 2
Side Bends: 50 lbs x 5 x 1, 50 lbs x 10 x 1

This workout took me 2 hours to complete. I was at home in my basement. (I took some photos of my home gym I will see about posting them on the forum) It takes a little longer because I have do do shoulder presses outside. My basement is not deep enough for OHP. I decided to use my shrug bar for deadlifts today. I like to switch it up. I have this wrist roller strap from a company that must be out of business now. Big-N-Strong. The strap attaches to an olympic sleeve. You use a loading pin on the other end. Twist the sleeve to move the weight. Great attachment for us cellar dwellers. Efficient use of existing equipment.

Default Today's Workout

Squat: 1 x 10 x 140, 1 x 6 x 230, 1 x 5 x 280, 1 x 3 x 330, 1 x 5 x 350 x 2, 1 x 3 x 350
Squats felt heavy today. Did not have a lot to eat before this workout.

SLDL: 1 x 10 x 230. On rep number 9 I felt a twinge under my right rib. I should have stopped. Now I got a an ache under my rib. Great.

Bench: 1 x 5 x 140, 1 x 5 x 230, Tried 320 - failed, Tried 300 - failed, 1 x 10 with a pair of 80 lb dumbells.

Chins: 1 x 6 x Gray band, 1 x 6 x Green band, 1 x 6 x Blue band

Grippers

Crunches

Man my side hurts. What the f--K did I do. I spent 4 months with a bad case of tennis elbow now I got this. Great. Why couldn't I pick a hobby that doesn't cause injuries.
