Back was still a bit twingy but I sucked it up and got on with it
A bit of background and stats first
Age - 35
Height - 5’9
Weight - 187 Lbs
Have been strength training on and off for the past 8 years however I had a 2 year break recovering from an ankle reconstruction and a generally busy life, re: wife, kids, work etc etc
I have competed in power lifting and some amateur strongman in the past and done pretty well.
My diet is pretty average at the moment looking a little like this:
eggs x 2
porridge with honey
cup of tea
a massive serving of whatever protein and carbs are available
Protein, salad and either broccoli or brussel sprouts
Reflex One Stop Xtreme weight gain
I also take a multi vit and creatine
My meal selection cannot be changed or forecast as I pretty much eat what is available.
Right-o onto it. Started BBB for the first time. Found it pretty easy being day 1 week 1 however I will have to adjust to the higher rep and lower weights.
Overhead Press - warmup then 52.5KGx5, 60KGx5, 67.5KGx5
Flat Bench - 50KG 5x10
Chins - overgrasp 10, pronated 8, undergrasp 7, towel 4, overgrasp 5
BB Curls - 27KG 3x10
Dips - 10KG 3x10
Facepulls - 5plates 3x10
What are peoples thoughts on the chins. I can achieve 5x10 overgrasp however changing it up felt good. Should I stick with overgrasp or just break up the sets and make sure I achieve 10 reps of each style.
