Bulldog: Building Old Man Strength

After this cycle is done… Think I will go ahead and start doing squats with the Buffalo Bar again and use the SSbar as a supplement movement for squats.

OK , I lied! Went ahead and but the Buffalo bar back in …

Squats( Buffalo Bar): 385ibs/174.6kgs X 10…had the strength for more but I was sucking air . Damn conditioning!

SSbar: 3 x 5 @ 305lbs/138.3kgs … Ok, I like this better as a supplemental movement. Thinking of bumping up the volume on these by 2 more sets.

SSBar Goodmornings: 5 x 10 @ SW

Was moving slow today… was worried because I had some soreness going on in the lower abdominal area . Luckily , it slowly subsided once I started working up on my squats.

Hey bulldog. How’s your abdomen feeling?

#3306

Well thanks for asking… It gets a little sore after say squats or pulls. Its nothing debilitating but I have a feeling it will be one of those things thats going too hang around for awhile and lessons with time, like with most of my aches and pains.

off%20my%20lawn

Trap Bar deads: 470lbs /213.18kgs x 5 …kept allot of reps in the tank. Played with the idea of a few joker sets before hand…decided against it.
Speed pulls: 5 x 2 @ 345lbs/156.4kgs
Seated Band curls: allot
Shrugs: allot

Decided on pulls that I will start using a hard cap on my main work sets again. This is a way of me managing my work volume on them and allowing me to hit squats a little harder and maintain recovery.

The belt isn’t helping? Well I guess if the pain or the separation is not getting worse, then it’s not a problem and just hope that it won’t

#3309

Well …not noticing any major issue with area of the separation itself. Just soreness in the actual abdominals still.

body%20said%20no

Squat: 375lbs/170kgs x 6… Form was way off and my abdominal s were really pissed the hell off. I had originally had planned on 10 plus on this set earlier in the day.

SSbar squats: 290lbs/131.5kgs X 5 …the original plan was 5 sets . My body said other wise.
Good mornings: 5 x 10 @ SW… well at least these went well with no issues.

My lazy ass should have done some hip belt squats because I got in jack and shit in actual work.

Glad you’re back to most people’s normal.

#3313

But is that a good thing?

#3314

Hmm…any chance you could go back to your doc and ask if it can be surgically repaired? Not sure if it’s a wise move though from a medical standpoint. That also means you’re gonna have to go under the knife and be out of training a few weeks to months, so I’m really not sure about the benefit vs risk

#3315

In this case it would actually only be cosmetic and would actually weaken the area since the connective tissue is not torn. Just another thing I will have to address . My now normal thing is once I get one thing realativly running good. The gods of iron say fuck him let’s have his old ass deal with this.

#3316

Feeling way off today. Going to bump today’s session to tomorrow morning.
