Can you post the break down of this.

Would like to try that.[/quote]

In that tri-set I went 4/3/2/1 -starting from a dead-stop on the cleans & rows.
4-Power Clean x 4-Bent Row x 4-Deadlift
3-Power Clean x 3-Bent Row x 3-Deadlift
2-Power Clean x 2-Bent Row x 2-Deadlift
1-Power Clean x 1-Bent Row x 1-Deadlift
[10 of each / 30 reps total set]

Sometimes I alternate each movement…1-Power Clean x 1-Bent Row x 1-Deadlift repeat x8-10 and during routines when I train back and shoulders together I might add a push-press to the clean. Many options. Demanding on your respiration.
Good Luck! [/quote]
Thanks and that was 135?

You have a log yet in over 35? [/quote]

BlueCollarTr8n – sent you a PM.

I’ve done complexes similar to this. He left out the part where going into the 2’s you have to start holding back the urge to vomit.[/quote]

Exactly.

If you haven’t done complexes it looks oh so easy when just watching the video. It ain’t.[/quote]
I do them a few times a week actually. Long story.

140…I always have a 2-1/2 against the collar on my bar, but close enough. I want it light enough that I get off the ground on each clean rep. On a REALLY good day I may go with 165-170.

No; I don’t have an online log.


Pretty fluffy 216 here.

Training has been sporadic since the baby… And I’m almost positive I re tore my labrum. Sucks.

Seriously thinking of cutting down to 200 or so and being lean… Looking at getting back into running some more, maybe another triathlon.

I can’t imagine training like this at the time of day you train at DJ. The fucking birds ain’t up yet lol, hats off to you. I train at 10:00 am at I find that too early. Having said that I’d much rather train before work than after no matter what the time.

Meh you get used to anything. It would take me a while to adjust to working out in the evenings now.

[quote]Derek542 wrote:

Do you mean complexes specifically, or the use of intensification techniques in general?

What time do you lift Derek?

I guess just your training regiment in general.

No worries if you dont want to get into that. Just thought I would ask, reason I asked if you had a training log.

Just depends when he goes to bed, if he hits the hay at 10 pm that’s 6 hours of sleep

Used to think the same way. Now, 90% of my workouts are at 5am. You feel great the rest of the day.

I’m right there with you. I’m up at 3:30 to hit the gym on work days and 5 on my days of work. Feels good to sleep in lol

It definitely takes some getting used to but a completely empty gym is nice.

Im old I am in bed by 9 at the very latest.

By the time I get to work at 7 am I am awake and ready to work, you get used to it.

BlueCollarTr8n the above is the link to my log, I didnt film it, sorry will try again next week and try to remember to bring my phone in from the car. Only issue I really had was my grip was starting to go when doing it the second time.

Wow…you are really increasing the road-work. I did the W.Dash in 2010, although I do cardio prior to every workout, I generally limit my road-work to a mile; once a week. Looks like you know what you’re in for…hope you have a great day!

I am uncertain how to decribe my training. I train in the afternoon about 4pm. As I mentioned I do at least 20 min. of cardio ahead of my weight training (always have), and about 10 min. of general mobility. My weight training last at least 90 min. and some days are 120. Most workouts are based on compound movements followed by isolation work. I work across all rep. ranges, take a many of the sets to failure every session, and spinkle things like the complexes, drops, supers, etc. throughout the routine. I jump regulary and do a few sets of abs each workout. Medicine ball work, jump rope, HIT, sledge hammers, loaded carries…it’s all good. I can’t remember ever training less than four days a week and I might train six depending. Summary: I run, stretch, jump, squat, press, pull, row, curl, eat, and sleep. When I do more of one, I do less of something else. At 50, my best days are behind me, but I don’t approach my training with that frame of mind. I’m in the starting line-up until someone takes my spot!
