GAUNTLET CYCLE, WEEK 1, Day 1:

warmup:
foam rolling for back, IT bands, hips. Stretching for pecs, lats, shoulders, hips. 1x12 each behind neck press, good morning, muscle snatch, squat to stand.

1. Strict Press (cleaned once, press for reps):
Bar x 8
95 x 8
135 x 5
145 x 10, 10, 10.

2. T-Shirt Press:
Bar x 10
135 x 5
155 x 5
190 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5

3. DB Row:
95 x 10, 10, 10, 9, 13. Straps on last set.

4. DB Curl:
25's x 10, 10, 10, 10, 10. Someone showed me a better way to do these. can't use as much weight, but much better bicep work.

Conditioning:
5 rounds of 200m Row Sprint and med ball slams with partner.

Session Grade: 80%
Notes:
Really good first day of the program. My best strict press for 10 is 155, so doing 145 for 3 sets of 10 was pretty solid. Everything after that was punching the clock. I really need to get my dumbbell rows up though. Good to get some conditioning work in too, probably the first time in at least 3 months.

Schedule has been hectic today, but trained with a few friends today and just wanted to have some fun.

1. Power Clean:
135 x 3
155 x 5
185 x 3
205 x 3
225 x 2

2. Pendlay Row:
225 x 10
275 x 3

3. DB Curls:
4 sets of 12

Pretty fun little session, and was genuinely surprised at how strong I was on rows. When I don't deadlift first they are a lot easier!

So, as some of you might have noticed, my training hasn't had a whole lot of structure over the past few weeks. I had a few issues come up concerning weather, and then an injured training partner, and a few other things. Also, I am closing out my senior year of college and as such, am finding time for lifting difficult to come by. As such, I wanted to find something that would allow me to get stronger, but not spend too much time in the gym.

Some of you might be familiar with nate_bro who recently joined and started a log here. As it happens, he is actually a long time friend of mine (and if I may say so, my lifting protege as it were). I recently recommended that he move to 531 to keep his progress consistent without killing himself. Well, I am going to take my own advice and will be joining him on 531. As such, here is the first session:

5/3/1, CYCLE 1, 5's WEEK, DEADLIFT:

Warmup:
Foam rolling for back, hips, IT bands. Stretching for pecs, lats, hips. 1x10 each behind neck press, good mornings, squat to stands.

1. Hang Power Snatch:
Bar x 5
65 x 3
95 x 3
115 x 3
135 x 3
155 x 2
165 x 2. PR?

2. Deadlift:
225 x 5
275 x 5
320 x 5
365 x 8, PR! Belt.

3. Front Squat:
135 x 5
185 x 5
205 x 10
215 x 10
230 x 10

4. Leg Curl:
3 sets of 10

Session Grade: 80%
Notes:
Nice first session. Previous best power snatch was 175 for 1, but from the floor. So 165 for 2 seems like a PR to me! Deadlift was also good; I really wanted 9 or 10 going in, but 8 is a PR so a good set none the less. Front squats were brutal, I was pretty tired at this point, but got a decent amount of reps in.

Nice little PR on the bench press. Once again, I had wanted 9 or 10, but still a good set. Assistance all went well, and I think I finally figured out how to kick up dumbbells properly which has always been an issue for me. Looking forward to more gainz!
