Losthog- 2019 Redefining Me

Wow. I remember when your kids were weaker than me. Now, they can out lift me by a lot, any day of the week. A real testament to the power of 5/3/1. Even though I’ve been doing it longer than they have. LOL

The gym was packed tonight. We were lucky to land a bench when we got there. I wanted 5 for the top set on bench it just wasn’t there today. I may could have ground out 1 more. I haven’t slept well all week 12 hours over the last 3 days. So I just capped it and did more on the down sets using 225 3x5 instead of a pyramid.

Spotted a guy with a 510 raw bench for a single. He just joined and is a super cool cat.

Good session. Need to sleep…

Yes. Use this weekend to recharge (or at least the next 12-16 hours). My mind and body function significantly worse if I get less than 6-7 hours of sleep more than one night in a row. You’re a soldier

As @TrainForPain or @JMaier31 said in their log (I forget who) I’ll never not curl :grin:

If it wasn’t me, it should have been. I consider it a main lift. Sometimes I reverse curl and call it “cleans” just to fit in!

I might should have shut it down sooner. 6-8 hours post workout abs the lower back is not happy at all.

My low back is really angry this morning. I’ll try and roll it out at some point today. CBD oil is in my future

Damn Hog, you’re taking some beating along the way.
Hope you’ll recover quickly and it’s only a little strain or something not to serious.

Well I’ve had better workouts. But I’m proud of the top deadlift set. The back tweak from Saturday is much improved and only slightly noticeable. Deadlifts didn’t aggravate the tweak at all. Still working up.

Nice work as always hog. Starting to see some good consistency here and the results are already showing.

Looking good, it seems like a less crazy amount of volume is doing you good.
