Bulldog: Building Old Man Strength



Yeah, strong as hell and feeling like it. We expect that in this log.


Thanks took some work pulling it out of my ass. Had it sunk pretty damn deep…


That could be a subject of debate


“Bench: 335 x 6 … Thats it , wasnt heavy but my form was really off.”
That lil sentence there says a lot.


I thinking maybe my idea of what most would considered strong has been warped due to the individuals I have been around over time.



Trap bar Deads: 465 x 10

Kettle Bell swings: 3 x 15 @ SW
T bar Rows: 5 x 10 @ SW
Shrugs: 3 x 15 @ SW
Whoops …didnt do core work my bad



Standing OHP: 180 x 6 … did not push it keep reps in the tank
3 x 5 @ 145 … FYI dropped my Training max on these slightly

Dips: 50 total reps
Pulldowns: 5 x 10 @ SW …on a him I did these as a super set with dips

Also did some light direct bicep work
Band pull aparts : 100 total reps.


Thanks for making me feel weak again !!


my apologizes…wasn’t my intention.


All good my friend. It’s great to see you hitting the iron with purpose and just makes me work harder myself when I see some of your numbers.


Wanted to post this video of the oldest that he sent yesterday… Finally his form is getting where I would like to see it.

On a side not I like how the kid next to him in the other rack looks and is probably thinking " damn im a bitch" (yes im being a asshole)



Squats: 5 x 3 @ 70% … FYI running a separate rep and set scheme compared to everything else focusing on speed and technique. Especially since I plan on pushing Trap Bar pulls pretty damn hard for awhile and dont want to cripple my old ass.
Step ups: 3 x 10 @ SW
Goodmornings: 5 x 10 @ SW
Standing cable crunches: 5 x 10 @ SW
prehab stuff for hip…




Kids lifting some serious weight. Kudos on him and Dad for teaching him.


I got a gut feeling that a 6 pull isnt too far off.


Bullpup keep up the good work. And remember to give your father credit.


Slacking on posting sessions



Standing OHP: 175 x5…no plus sets
3x5@ 135

Dips: some
Pulldowns: yep
Curls: sure why the fuck not

Pretty much a garbage session… got some work in and thats about it. Just wasnt into it mentally for some reason so I was just going through the motions. Need to do some minor tweaks on the assistance stuff .


Squats: 5 x 3 @ 70% …Finally had a decent squat session!! Actually had some power and explosiveness going on .

Step ups: 3 x 10 @ SW
Goodmornings: 5 x 10 @ SW
Standing ab crunches : 5 x 10 @ SW
Prehab stuff for hip

Ok, im content with today’s session.
