Garage Gains (Jibb's Log)

Hi everyone and welcome to my log !

Why the new life ?
- I will become a daddy from here (very) shortly.

So many things will change, but I will try as much as possible to keep my training as close as possible to what I am doing today (3x/week).

I spoke with CT to see what would be best for this period of my life (in term of training) and it seems to be : Fullbody training !

So I started to follow for a few weeks this type of training. (And I really like it !)

Even though I’m a little late, I tagged my log with “commited” to avoid doing what I did regularly, change programs too often.

Some info about me:

  • 30 yo (31 in november)
  • 181cm
  • 92kg
  • I train in the morning before my work day (from 6:00 to 7:00am)

My best lift (not all recent) :

  • Deadlift : 180kg (sumo and conventionnal)
  • Squat : 140kg
  • Bench : 120kg

How is my program organized?

Every training day will contain :

  • 1 Lower body movement (2 sets)
  • 1 Push movement (2 sets)
  • 1 Pull movement (2 sets)
  • 2 isolation (1 set each)

Intensity :
All the sets listed will be close to failure or to failure in the 6-12 rep range (maybe up to 15 for certain movement).

I also do cardio 2 to 3x a week.

The goal is to grow or at least maintain in the first few months after baby arrives.

Bench is solid, you’re strong. But it looks like it’s all pushing muscles. Your legs are fidgeting. Bracing more, using leg drive and overall tightness would add very quickly kilos to it.

Row is good. Straps are for feeling the muscles or grip issues?

Thank for the feedback @aldebaran !
Yes, it’s only pushing muscles like you said, I’ve to work on my technique.

Straps are for feeling the muscles, I try to pull with my elbow as much as I can.

When I’ve done my hack squat I was thinking about what you said last time haha thank for the motivation :smile:

Haha yeah legs are tough mentally. It’s a hate-love relationship for me. When I do these I imagine John Meadows screaming at me “One more! One more!” and the look of disappointment in his eyes if I give up ahah

Nice log Jibb, I’m in.

You’re young and strong, keep it up, and you’ll get beastly.

And congratulations, you’ll soon find out that training will take a bit of a beating, at least until things settles a bit.
But don’t worry Mate you’re about to enter the greatest journey of them all.

Since it’s MY log I will also share a little more than just my training :slight_smile:

At the end of last year I “discovered” Woilid Baatout, a french “Classic Physique” who’s doing Mr Olympia this weekend.
He is coached by Cris Aceto, and I really really like his physique.

Look this post from today : :muscle:
