Just Doing This


Are you doing the arms crossed or the clean hold on the front squats?


With regard to deadlifting, my husband and I built a simple platform of two thickness of 3/8" plywood topped with rubber stall mats. I really don’t want and cracks in my ancient concrete basement floor.


@hel320 I’m working on a clean grip. I can get three fingers on the bar pretty comfortably although the stretch in my left wrist hurts a bit.

Haven’t had much time at home this week.

Front Squat - 1x5x65, 1x5x95, 1x1x115 left wrist hurts way more than anything else
Back Squat - 1x5x95, 1x5x135, 1x5x185, 1x3x225, 1x1x225, 1x5x185
Flat Bench - 1x5x65, 1x5x95, 1x5x115, 1x4x145, 1x12x115

Really short on pulling this week! Hopefully on the weekend.


Lots of hiking over the weekend. Happy father’s day all!

Started a longer route on my lunch walk today.

Yates Row - 1x12x45, 1x12x65
RDL ss with Yates Row - 1x12x95 each, 1x8x135 each
Deadlift - 1x1x205, 3x1x255, 1x1x275 ties my old pr from a year+ ago after 3mo of stronglifts. Lockout was easy but my grip was slipping and it was terribly slow off the floor
Pull-Ups - 10x10


Our girls’ siblings are getting placed here for who knows how long so as of today we are a five kid household :crazy_face:

Body felt good but tired all day yesterday. Lunch walk today felt good; my heart rate was 124 and 130 the couple times I checked it. I may start taking my backpack with a 25lb plate in it in the future as I’d like that up a little higher and I can’t jog without severe pain due to old injuries in the right knee and ankle.

Guess I’m turning into a push/pull split sorta.

Front Squat - 1x5x65, 1x5x95x 1x2x115 wrist hurt much less than last time
Back Squat - 1x5x95, 1x5x135, 1x5x185, 1x3x225, 1x2x225, 1x6x185
Flat Bench - 1x5x65, 1x5x95, 1x5x115, 1x5x145, 1x12x115
Inverse Rows - 8, 8, 4 lol

I hit every barbell goal I had for the day but seriously need to up the frequency on the rows to get more reps on.


Push-Ups/Inverse Rows superset - 20/6 x3
Inverse Rows - 10
Just the bar did 10 strict press, 10 front squats, 10 things that were power hang cleans in my mind at least. Brother in law also sidetracked me and long story short did some thrusters and push presses and a push jerk and flexed at each other.


Yates Row - 1x12x45, 1x12x65
RDL/Yates Row SS - 12 each 95lbs, 12/9 at 135lbs
Deadlift - 1x5x135, 1x1x205, 1x1x255, 2x0x285 moved off the floor easily but my grip failed within the first few inches each time, 1x1x255 held until my left grip failed
Suitcase Shrugs - 95lbs, did 10 reps easy with the right hand but needed three sets to get 10 reps with the left. Must build left grip!
Push-Ups - 5x12, 4x10

Using the 135lb deadlifts to get in the groove physically felt smart. Just focused on the feeling of tension on my hamstrings, a flat back, and landing the bar right where it started each rep. Had to crap after the 205lb DL but I thought about CAT and pulled my pants up at maximal velocity when I was done.
