So with the neck strap... are you going for hypertrophy on your neck? Just curious.

Also, with the planks, how long do you rest between sets?

Thanks for answering my questions, man. Still learning.

Neck goal is strength....but, since I have done next to zero direct neck work, I expect a decent amount of neck gains. Base of neck at top of traps is currently 16.75...would probably top out at 18" if I did it right.

My plank rotation was back-to-back: DL, plank, set up next DL, DL, plank, set up next DL, etc...

I started at 20 seconds, but have easily done 2-3 minute planks in the past as well as 5-7 minutes of plank-to-side plank-to-plank-to-side plank complexes. Just haven't done them in a while so starting in the basement.

Comments
Surprising pump fatigue from Bradfords.

Pull ups were sluggish, chin ups were good.

Squats felt very clean...focusing on deep breathing between reps.
Felt like I could have done another 50 lbs without much trouble.

Side Planks...welcome back, it's been a while!

Pressdown was interesting...random path due to nature of giant rubber bands...I liked them.

Got 10 relatively easy reps with the CoC Gripper #1 (140 lbs of pressure to close) so I just ordered the #1.5 (about 165 lbs to close), but I expect to get the #2 and maybe up to the #2.5 or #3 (280 lbs to close). http://www.captainsofcrushgrippers.com/

Moving slowly with the neck strap. Worked from 10-15 reps. Will do two sets of 8, then work up to 2 sets of 15. Once I get there, I'll start adding weight over 10 lbs.

In wrestling and BJJ we did "bridges". It's a great full-body-type workout for your neck. Have you ever tried those? What did you think?

So it looks like you're super setting the planks with DLs. Nice... Anything over 1 minute in regards to planks is pretty bad-ass. My fat ass can only stand about 1 minute at a time.

Thanks for the responses and keep up the good work!

i did bridges a looooong time ago....will probably work them in later on.

I had a friend that did two 10-minute planks with a short break between and the record is something like 90 minutes, so i have room to improve!

Good work JD. Funny how used to chins were easier for me than pullups, but now they are reverse. Must be my wimpy bicepticons haha!! Good that you felt like you could easily handle more weight on squats as well

weak biceps? all your other lifts are meaningless!!!


as for squats, i was planning 5 sets, but since i'm going to be doing singles, i will leave it open for 5-10 sets based on how i'm feeling each workout.
