MONDAY APRIL 4

Squat Deload

150 x 5
185 x 5
225 x 5
185 x 5
150 x 5


Had to make myself stop at 5 sets...I forget deloads should be deloads sometimes. I've been doing a little more on my deload days because I feel like I get the best response from them if I just start to feel my CNS getting primed for heavy lifting. No pump even. It's kind of like training blue balls, and it's kind of fucking weird I just described it as such. I don't know about it.

I noticed you posted the below statement in XDSHo's log

Btw, on your deadlifts you may try spending less time down at the bar...I usually raise my hands over my head, arch my back, and get a big lungful of air then drop, grip, and pull. You can hammer your grip on in less then a second you just have to make sure your hands are dry and chalked. Makes all the difference in the world for 1RM attempts, because you get a little of the elastic "bounce" effect you feel in higher rep sets when you get a good groove going.


I was wondering, how much of a difference do you feel this makes? I ask because I never do this, I seem to spend an ages crouched at the bar phyching up. Then I take a few short quick breaths and then do my big belly breath, align myself and begin the pull. Do you think I'm limiting myself doing this?

Hey man thanks for the post! That's actually what I have been doing, got about 8 X 195lbs yesterday, relative ease. Next week I am trying 205X8. I am also front squatting 195X10, working up to 245lbs X 10 in the next 5 weeks or so. I haven't been updating my log. You got some solid lifts there. Nice work on the bench.

Thanks for dropping by the log vic!

It might not seem like it, but it was a really slow 245 for me lol. While I was doing it, it felt like years! It has been much faster before.

WEDNESDAY APRIL 6

Pullup

7, 5, 5, 5

Barbell Curl

65 x 5
75 x 5
95 x 10
75 x 5
65 x 5

Narrow Grip Preacher Curl

65 x 3 x 10

Reverse Curl

65 x 3 x 10

Decline Situp

120 x 2 x 10
BW x 1 x 25

Hanging Knee Raises

5 x 10

Figured my deload week would be a good time to get started on the gun show. Set a decent working max on curls(113.72) so I'll be loading them with the 5/3/1 scheme and trying to get my biceps past the 90lb weakling stage.

And now for some words about TrueProtein. I bought a 25lb bag of their recession whey last year about March, and I noticed today I still have plenty left and I've been using it every day. The stuff is just amazing for the price, can't recommend it enough.

Maybe you can make a t-shirt, 'my deload is your workout', then get all up in CF's grill with it.
