Thanks MS and BtB.

The other issue (maybe) with the BtN Press was, I could've had the grip too wide. I seemed to remember the grip should be a bit wider, but yeah, it might have been too far out. Getting close a Klokov Press, really.

I think the BtN press will work better for "Strength Mode", with only 2-3 reps at a time. For me, anyway. Whereas, standard issue strict press, I'm used to doing for high or low reps. Doesn't bother me - I've even done 20s!

After squats tomorrow, I'm thinking about giving the leg press a go, just for something different ("quads: 3 sets of 6-15", so this should fit), and also trying out Romanian Deadlifts (for "hamstrings: 3 sets of 6-12"), because I've never done them, and they're coming up next Friday anyway. If I'm feeling reeeaaal frisky, I might throw in some calf work, and even ab work on top of that.

We'll see.

Aha. Yep, too wide then. Thanks again.

And thanks allaya others.


Week 1 Day 4: Deez Wheels On Fire

Squat (all sets with precisely 2:00 between): 140kg/308lb x 2,2,1; 130kg/286lb x 1; 120kg/264lb x 3,3,3,3

Hack Squat: 80kg/176lb x 6,6,8

Romanian Deadlift: 100kg/220lb x 6

Hamstring Curl Machine: 90lb x 12,12,12

\supersetted with\

Standing Calf Raise Machine: 400lb x 12,12,12 (feet straight/out/in)


Ugh. Squats felt soooo heavy today. I guess it's partly down to a new routine, a new way of doing things. Had to reset the weight, twice. But at least I know where to go from here.

And RDLs, I can't quite get the hang of. Maybe I could do a deficit SLDL instead...? I know how to do those.

The other thing I noticed today is that hack squats (first time for these too) are like the leg extensions from hell. I was expecting to use more weight, and then at least to do more reps. But they totally knackered me. And my hamstrings kept getting in the way, lol. Didn't help I started out a bit tired, mind you - not much sleep last night, which couldn't be helped.


edit: Could be quads are a weak point, too...

Sounds like your legs said no so you decided to go by the philosophy "The beating will continue until moral improves"

Looks like a solid plan to me.

Yeah the same for reverse hacks. That exercise is deceiving.

Haha! I had the same experience with hack squats. They took me for surprise big time.

You'll get acclimated to the new routine and take off. I'm the same way, if I switch programs something mentally goes off on me and the same weights feel heavier while I feel my way through the first few weeks of the new training, then I get confident and take off again. The brain plays games on me.

THanks, guys.


BtB, what are your thoughts on deficit SLDL in place of RDL? I need something to use for Leg day (Density version).

Cheers,

Mic
