Default My Strength Journey

Hello,

My name is Adolfo and i started lifting 13 weeks ago. I'm gonna be honest with you, i never thought i would love strength training so much but i'm 100% in love now.

I am already on another forum with my training log, but i browsed this forum for quite some time now and i found the community nice, and since i video my training sessions in order to improve i decided to give this forum a go as well.


I need to shoot a decent video of my Workout B for you guys to see my Deadlift (it's my worst lift)


At the moment my trainign is:

A:

Squat
Bench
Pendlay Row
Weighted Dips


B:

Deadlift
Overhead Press
FrontSquat
Weight Chin ups


Last workout was this monday:

Workout A:

Squat 3x5 - 115 kg - 253 lbs
Bench 3x5 - 95 kg - 209 lbs
Row 3x5 - 80 kg - 176 lbs
Dips 3x5 - 21 kg - 46 lbs


PS: i wanted to post my videos but apperantly i can't before i make 15 posts.

Hello!

Thank you so much

Here's a couple of videos of my training so far.
As i said in the OP, i must make a decent workout B video with my deadlift.
I'm going to rebuild it from the ground up (i'm thinking 80 kg and restart from there).

Couple of PR's on the bench, 100 kg (220 lbs) felt easy, so i'm thinking i got a lot more to progress before i stall.





And my OHP:

Thank you all for the support.

I forgot to mention, i was invited to join a powerlifting team and start competing next year (which i inted to do), this really boosted my confidence.

------

So i ran into my first injury in my training. Instead of working through the pain i decided it was best to let it heal.

I searched the internet for people who had the same problem as me. It's in the Hammie-Tie in:




So for the time being i'm replacing the Deadlifts and Pendlay Row for other execises.
The exercises are not yet set in stone, because a guy form the team is going to restructure my workouts based on my weaknesses and strengths. But for the time being i was suggested here in the forum to replace the DL and row for the following:

DL - Romanian DL

Pendlay - One arm Dumbbell Rows, T-Bar Rows/ Regular Bent-over row.

I just don't know how effective a Dumbbell is for linear progression as they are limited in terms of weight?

Tell me what you think of this .

Of course, the rest will continue as normal, and tomorrow's workout i will make another training Vlog.

Thank you and keep on lifting!

Okay, so i got my first work cylce template (5 weeks), this will put emphasys on my technique and not so much on strength (i had to leave my ego at home for this one to be honest).



After the first four weeks i will be evaluated and my program will be oriented accordingly:



I will be reducing my working weights from 10 to 20% depending on the lifts, and the Deadlift will be (like i thought it would) rebuilt from scratch.

Here's my program:



Workout A - Pull

Squat 5x5
Bench Press 5x5



Auxiliary work:

Overhead Press 5x5

Close Grip Bench 3x10



Workout B - Push

Deadlift 5x5



Auxiliary work:

Pull-Ups 5x5
Bent Over Barbell Row 4x7
Barbell Curls 3x10


Increase weight weekly, ranging from 2.5 kg to 5 kg





I Will start on monday and of course, Vlog every step of the way!
