01-Jul-2018
20 kg 1x20 RDL, 1x20 good mornings, 1x20 strict press, 5x5 back squat, 1x5 clean
30 kg 1x3 power clean, 1x3 oh squat, 3x3 snatch
40 kg 2x3 snatch, 1x2 snatch terminated set due to funky feeling
40 kg 1x20 RDL, 5x(5 good mornings and 5 squats)
3x8 bw dips
1x20 perfect curls
1x20 cable lateral raises

original plan was 4x4 at 155 kg DL, but my back felt painful during snatches and i decided to go into rehab mode and switched to light weight RDL, good mornings and squats. hopefully this won’t develop into a long term issue, i deem it’s due to my abs have not recovered fully from abs rollout the 29-th of june as i had trouble even getting out of bed from DOMS this morning.

below, from training 01 July 2018, a link to a vid of my squats and good mornings. i have put restraints to gauge my squat depth, if i squat deeper than that my butt wink sets in and i also feel that my hip flexors get jammed. i hear the metallic “klonk” when i hit the restraints i know i hit depth. so i reason that the restraints are at the optimal depth for me but eventually i need to take the restraints away and teach my nervous system when i hit proper depth.

below, a link to a vid of my snatches, a grunt at the second snatch when i get the mid/low back pain

also my shoulders shiver and i adjust the shoulder position in a way i usually not have to.

extra training
5 rounds (KB 12 kg 1x20 swing + 13 push ups)
2 rounds (10 back and forth lunges each side + 20 sec side plank each side)


#245

03-Jul-2018
20 kg 1x20 RDL, 1x20 good mornings, 1x20 strict press, 5x5 back squat, 1x5 clean
60 kg 6x1 pendlay row, 1x6 DL+high pull, 1x1 clean and press, 1x3 power snatch from hang
90 kg 1x2 DL
110 kg 1x2 DL
125 kg 1x2 DL
140 kg 1x15 DL, “new pr” but rather a cluster set than a solid set
5 rounds (13 push ups and 30 high knees)

took it “easy” today, due to that i experienced some pain in my mid back during snatches 01-July-2018, so in order not to jeopardize my back in excess i skipped the 4x4 at 155 kg DL that i have pending since 01-Jul-2018 and went for a lighter pr, but then as i progressed in the set my breathing got really heavy and i had to take about 7 to 8 breaths between the last 5 reps.

Looks like you’ve been good and consistent during my layoff, good on you. I see you changed your goal from muscle-up to 40 pushups though. I’ll assume there’s an explanation that I’ll find when I get the time to delve back through all the archived stuff I missed. Good progress, keep killing it.


#258

adjusted my goal the 12th of May


#259

checked my weight this morning. Holiday meaning more food and beer and less exercise and my bw gone up to 96.8 kg with a body fat of 19.3 % which i suspect is a fairly inaccurate estimate. OK, that means more veggies for me and less goodies.


#260

ok ok, had 1 WHOLE carrot, 1/2 bell pepper and 2 FULL HANDS of spinach, a 3 egg omelette and only 3 cups of coffee and just one croissant for breakfast, i’m going to get shredded in no time.
