Pull's Log: The Little Man That Couldn't Grow A Beard
 
The Little Man That... The Little Man Who... Ahh whatever. Starting a new log for no reason other than I feel like it...

Current Stats as of 2/7/12:

Body Weight: 179lbs
Height: 5'6"... still

Clean & Push Press - 1x240
Squat - 1x440
Clean & Press - 1x195
Front Squat - 1x345



Backing off from the higher frequency 5-day full body sessions in favor of just 3 sessions a week to free up some time and energy. Will eventually return to it though!

The template as of now is laid out below. "Extra work," just means additional down sets for higher reps or working back up to heavy singles. Conditioning will also be included here and there. I will also not hesitiate to throw in some extra sessions, but these will be very light and more than anything focus on prehab, mobility, technique.

Session 1
Clean & Push Press - 1x1RM, 2x3x1RM-25, 3x2x1RM-15, Extra Work
Squat - 1x1RM, 2x3x1RM-45, 3x2x1RM-25, Extra Work
Barbell Row - 5x5x"Heavy"

Session 2
Clean & Push Press - 1x1RM, 3-8x3x1RM-30/35
Squat - 1x1RM, 3-8x1RM-55/60
Pull Ups - x30-80 Total (Weighted/Body Weight)

Session 3
Clean & Push Press - 1x1RM, 2x3x1RM-25, 3x2x1RM-15, Extra Work
Squat - 1x1RM, 2x3x1RM-45, 3x2x1RM-25, Extra Work
DB Row - 5x10-20x70

Clean & Push Press
-2x1x205
-1x220
-1x230
-0x235
-2x3x205
-3x2x215

Squat
-1x405
-1x415
-2x3x370
-3x2x390

Row

-5x5x225

Felt pretty crappy today. Legs and lower back are fatigued, big time - scratching my head as to why. Cleans were slow and under power. Dip/drive on the push presses were slow and powerless. 405 squat was hard and 415 was a grind. Squat down sets moved better, but much harder than they should have been. Still got in work...

Get it little buddy!!! Do it for the little people!!!! Just kidding.:march:
In all seriousness, for 5'6 180lbs you are moving some serious f'n iron! I would have guessed you weighed much more based on your numbers. You are a beast.
Looking forward to seeing you progress on this new routine.

For a fatigued day those are some really good numbers!

Nice routine, Pull. Looks like an old school Kono routine, with some Bulgarian backoffs. HA! Like I know what I'm talking about! :)

Seriously. Crush it. I love checking out your log.

Joining you in the reduced frequency for a while. Too much work, not enough sleep.

Good luck Pull.

Good luck, as always :)

Hahaha. Living in Giants central, people were wondering why/how I could throw my support behind the Patriots. Come on people, gotta support the Smurfs!

Thanks Mab. Dissappointed by the performance but I gotta remind myself the work was decent and much stronger than I was not very long ago.

Hell, I'm not familiar with Kono's work... so I'm going to say your right on the money! Appreciate it, bud.

Thanks Steve. Yeah, another reason for the drop in work... sleep has been awful as of late. Hating the idea of doing less, but also looking at it as a time to recharge the batteries.
