I'm happy to hear that. Sitting here on the last of 3 rest days, I know I'm absolutely itching to get back to it!

365x1 tomorrow on deads or bust. And by bust I mean my spine exploding out of my back and splattering on the wall, because that's the only thing that will stop me.

Usually after a 3 day lay-off I feel very fresh and want to lift so badly it hurts. Neither of those was completely true yesterday, so Last evening I did a mini carb re-feed. I didn't go crazy like I did Wednesday night, but I still gained some weight.

Today's bodyweight- 208

I don't consider this a setback in any way, because most of the weight gained was water and glycogen. Other than trying to get my muscles to recover, I also wanted to reset my carb up to Friday night. I think that will work better for my goals.

I'm also feeling inspired to include an EC stack in my supplement stack. I've used it before with good results, and it's so damn cheap. There's really no reson to not use it, especially with my daily fasting.

I'm not going to theorize about what my weight will do this week. Every time I do that it seems like my plans change.

I'll be off to the gym soon, ready to bring it again. 3 weeks of pounding, then the medics can sort out the bodies.

The day after my carb up I'm always hungry as hell. Combine that with the fact that I didn't train yesterday and it all adds up to no real weight lost, which is fine. I'm already within 4 lbs. of my goal for the week, so if I lose 1lb during the weekend then 1+lb/day next week I'll easily make my goal.
Get it done!

Definitely a day of ups and downs in the gym.

Dead lifts-
135x2
185x2
225x2
275x1
315x1
335x1
365x0 ("CRAP. I can't even get the freaking thing started. Let me try with straps-")
365x0 (Yup, even with straps I can't even get the weights to move an inch.)

Dumbell rows-
These were done for reps in 5 minutes for the team challenge. I alternated arms, doing 10 in each arm untill I got 100, then did 5 with each arm, then finally 2 more before my wife called time, for a total of 112. This wasn't easy, and I had to focus on pulling my elbow as hard as possible from the bottom and then using momentum to get my elbow to my side. My lower back started throbbing halfway through because of just having done dead lifts.


My lower back is WEAK. I've always been about speed. As my dead lift and squat suffered during my early training career, my clean continued to progress. Thats what happens when you start training as an overweight football player. If I want to build some maximal strength, then I really need to start training it. For the next 3 weeks I'll be doing lots of heavy doubles and triples on Dead lift.

One thing I've noticed is that when I max out on anything, I can never grind it out. If a lift ever slows down, I'm going to fail. I don't even have sticking points, because either I blast a lift up or I never even get it started. I believe in training your weaknesses to get better, but max strength is also not a big goal for me right now. It WILL help me in other parts of my training to bring my max strength up, but I can't train it so much that it compromises the other things I've been working on, such as muscular endurance.

I'm going to be training deads like I've been doing squats, working up to heavy doubles and triples, then dropping back down to 135 and repping out. If I progress in either my high rep or heaviest sets, I'll consider the day a success.

With 20lbs added from the 315 to the 335 for 1 rep each, then more of a jump from the 335 to the 365 of 30lbs; is there any reason for the progression scheme used? It's just that as the lift gets heavier, I personally tend to add "less" weight on each subsequent progression, not more. I find, if I add more, the weight feels like a tonne but with a slower addition/increase, it feels much easier.

Just curious?

The jump in weight had everything to do with the actual weights on the bar. 315 is 3pps, then 10's on each side was 335, then 25's on each side was 365, which was my goal for the day.

Truth be told, I don't even think I would have gotten 350 or 355, but I'm not that worried about it.

My dead lift form needs work too. Once I get some more experience in the coming weeks we'll see if I get some good improvement.

Gotcha! I usually end up taking 3 off to put 1 on, but am using a lot less weight
