Monday 9.9.2013

Squat - 157.5 kg x 5 x 5 - Easy. Realized my form feels more solid if I think about bringing knees up when going down, instead of thinking about butt going back. That way my back becomes more erect, and I'm much stronger from the hole. !NOTE! When I write "easy", I don't mean the weight is literally a joke, but rather that I'm not even close to failure and the bar speed is fast.
Bench - 87.5 kg x 5 x 5 - Very hard. I can't believe I still haven't had to reset! Microloading 1.25 kg really is effective.
Rows - 130 kg x 5 x 5 - Medium.

Shrugs - 155 kg x 8 x 3 - Medium.
Triceps - 45 kg x 8 x 3 - Hard.
Chins - BW x 8, 8, 7 - Hard.
Good Mornings - 115 kg x 10 x 2 - Hard. Experimented with a wider stance, similar to my squat stance. Feels better because of less hip impingement.
Abs - 130 kg x 15 x 3 - Medium.

My weight has jumped up and I feel like I'm getting fat now. Obviously I'm getting much stronger, too, and my chin-up numbers haven't decreased which seems to suggest there's nothing to worry about. It's probably just water.

Wednesday 11.9.2013

Squat - 160 kg x 5 x 5 - Easy. Form felt very solid. Definitely keep doing it this way: think about bringing knees to chest while going down, then open the hips like a switchblade to power up from the bottom. I'm just 5 kg below my previous stall, so it's looking very good this time!
DL - 155 kg x 5 - Hard. Was worried about back rounding, but according to my gym buddy it didn't look too bad.
Press - 61.25 kg x 4 (F), 55 x 5 x 4 - Failed the fifth rep on the first set. It just felt dog heavy!
Rows (light) - 115 kg x 5 x 5 - Easy.

CGBP - 75 kg x 8, 8, 7 (F) - Failed the last rep.
Curls - 43.75 kg x 7, 38.75 x 8 x 2 - Strength loss since last time and/or because of the just failed press and close grip bench. Time to reset!
Abs - 130 kg x 16 x 3 - Ok.

Lol, I just realized I failed every single upper body lift (except for the rows, but they were light)! I'm not too disappointed because the squat and deads went so well. At least if I have to reset the lifts, I'll get a well earned break from heavy pressing movements, and then I'll bust through this plateau like a rocket!

Solid squat numbers and reps. Well done.

Friday 13.9.2013

Squat - 162.5 kg x 5 x 5 - Med. Form feels good, strength feels good. Next week I'mma bust through my previous stall for sure!
Bench - 88.75 kg x 5/5/5/5/4 (F) - Very hard. Failed the last rep. Shouldn't have even tried it.
Rows - 132.5 kg x 5 x 5 - Medium. Form was crap though.

Shrugs - 157.5 kg x 8 x 3 - Medium.
Skullcrushers - 46.25 kg x 8/8/6 - Very hard. Achy joints.
Chins - BW x 8, 8, 7 - Very hard.
Good Mornings - 117.5 kg x 10/9 - Form was unacceptable. Reset to 105 kg.
Abs - 130 kg x 17/16/16 - Hard.

Pushing (and failing) on all the pressing movements (bench, overhead, close grip, skullc.) is really eating my motivation.. I wish they weren't all heavy at the same time. Thankfully next week I'll probably be forced to deload at least some of them.

Double bodyweight squat for 5 x 5? Wow, that's really impressive.

Congratulations on the weight loss; those are some huge changes.

I just saw the weights on those rows. 132.5 kg especially at your bodyweight!!

Big Swede and Mari Ari and now you: all as strong as bulls. What do they feed you Northern Europeans on?

Thanks! I love squatting - it's hard but at the same time fun because I just keep on progressing. My body seems to react really well to the 5x5, I'm actually making better progress than I was doing 3x5 because the intensity's a little lower.

I have to confess I cheat A LOT on the rows. It seems to be working in terms of back development, though. I could do a 100kg pretty strictly. It's weird 'cos I don't really look muscular at all, so I hope my muscle mass will indeed catch up If that's you in your avatar, I hope to some day look like that!

I explode my reps too. I don't consider it cheating though.

Yeah, I shouldn't either. I tend to belittle my achievements because that's considered polite in the Finnish culture

It's kinda the same thing you talk about in your "My Maxes Suck! I Can Only..." video. I'm working to get out of that mindspace

Monday 16.9.2013

Squat - 165 kg x 5 x 5 - Medium. Previous PR achieved! Still feels totally great, I'm not even in a power rack yet.
DL - 157.5 kg x 5 - Hard. Form felt pretty good though - I was activating my glutes and even quads instead of just the back. Remember to really round the upper back.
Press - 61.25 kg x 5/5/5/(4), 55 x 5 - Reset to 55 kg.
Rows (light) - 117.5 kg x 5 x 5 - Easy.

CGBP - 75 kg x 8/8/(7) - Reset to 66.25 kg.
Curls - 38.75 x 8 x 3 - Not as easy as it should've been.
Abs - 130 kg x 17 x 3 - Ok.

I wasn't really motivated for the presses because my bicep/elbow insertions have been sore and I think that's because of slight overreaching, which is normal on this kind of a program. As I reset them now, I shall give those tendons/joints/whatever a rest and it'll make up for better progression in the long run. I'm also going to start stretching my pecs, rotator cuffs & biceps and massaging them with a rolling pin or something.

My weight has steadied at a level of 84 kg -85 kg. Every time I up my diet it seems my weight goes up a kilo or two very fast, and then just stays at that new higher level. Well at least my thigh and bicep measurements are up in addition to my waist!
