This is just a log to post about stuff when I feel like it, like when I get a PR or when I have useful tips for squatting/deadlifting. Maybe I'll just post some random stuff as well (such as my two favorite hobbies gardening and gaming/programming), who knows. I just want a chill thread for people to come check out.

Feel free to comment or ask questions or whatever.

EDIT: it appears I have mainly turned this into a squat log. So be it.

I stretch every single day for 20-30 minutes, sometimes twice, and I do a lot of soft tissue work with a quart glass mason jar. I usually squat every other day. Every couple of weeks I'll take 2-3 days off from it.

My squatting routine look like this:
  • empty bar x a few
  • 95 lbs x a few
  • 135 lbs x a few
  • 225 lbs x a few (sometimes if I'm feeling sluggish I will do 185 before 225)
  • 275 lbs x 2/3
  • 315 lbs x 2/3 (I am contemplating skipping 315 since my max is higher now)
  • 335 lbs x 2
Then I decide what I want to do for the day.

Probably once every 3 sessions I go for an absolute max with this kind of plan:
  • 355 x 1/2
  • 365 x 1
  • 375 x 1 current max
  • 385 attempt max
  • if attempt success, leave gym and go relax the whole day
  • if fail, drop weight and do some reps according to the next plan

Otherwise, I will increment up until I hit my current max (or ~10 lbs below if I'm feeling shitty), then drop weight and do doubles/triples, or do singles with 10 lbs below current max).

Plan for that:
  • 355 x 1/2
  • 365 x 1
  • 375 x 1 current max
  • ( 375 for singles, if I'm feeling mighty fine ) OR ( 365 for singles ) OR ( 355 for doubles ) OR ( 345 for triples )
  • + or - 5 lbs depending on how I'm feeling that particular day
  • screw percentages.

There is no concrete number of sets that I go for. I don't do them until failure of course, I just do them until I start to feel a bit burnt out and losing my energy/focus. Usually around 6 sets.

While I'm at the gym sometimes I'll do some weighted pullups or overhead presses, usually in doubles or triples for about 5-6 sets or just however I feel really.

I do not deadlift regularly, but I will once every two weeks or so to keep my back strong for squats. I don't go for max deadlift anymore, I usually put on around 20 lbs more than the squat PR I'm currently working for and do doubles or trips.

I don't do much conditioning anymore but I do try and get one interval workout and one burpee workout in each week. I don't really get sore from squatting anymore so I don't have problems sprinting/burpees between squat days.

I do not do any direct core work besides the ab wheel which I do about once a week.

Well I've pretty much been a PC gamer my whole life. First "real" online game was WarCraft 2: BNet Edition. I guess I've had times where I've liked most genres. I used to play CS:S a lot and HL2 Deathmatch. I've played a few MMOs (Dark Age of Camelot, Guild Wars, Aion were my favorites).

Let's see.. I really like TrackMania, StepMania and other fast-paced twitch-based games. Lately I've been playing Sonic Generations a lot. It's a pretty good game. I had a Skyrim stint as well. Was fun while it lasted.

Nice, I've never been much of a PC gamer, I played Starcraft a bit and Runescape for a while when I was in my teens. I'm much more into RPGs, especially on older consoles, like the golden sun and fire emblem series for GBA.

I have skyrim, the start is just frustratingly slow and I didnt really get it, so I'll start it again in a few weeks and see if I can get into it. What did you think of it? Sonic is good, fucking fast though, I feel like I'm on speed when I play it.

Yeah, with Skyrim I basically just ignored all quests and went on an exploring/killing/pillaging rampage. Was more fun for me that way :P

Here's a couple of speed runs I've gotten on Sonic Generations lately. They were really fun to do because it took lots of practice.

I actually did a conditioning workout today.

(10 empty barbell snatches + 10 burpees) x as many times as possible in 15 minutes. I got 7. I suck. My lower back was burning like all hell so I pussied out because I plan on squatting heavy tomorrow.

That seems to take precedence over everything in my life nowadays. Squatting. :romance-admire:

I got 375 lbs a couple days ago, which ties my PR before I modified my technique. My new technique is much more solid and I foresee myself getting 385 soon. I can see 405 on the horizon.

Nice work. I'd rather you do this as a proper training log so we can see what you actually do in a session.
