Eaaaasy rep lol. Surprised that was pr you could have had it for a triple


#242

That is around 60% bar weight…what percentage do you use?


#243

I meant more you say 200 + 50 in chains and not 250 at the top.

But I use 40-50% for speed.


#244

Oh right on. Whew… I was thinking I had screwed something up and gonna have to work back through all this crap again.

I may need to drop the bar weight some like you have done to get more speed out of the hole. My DE squat is anything but dynamic. I’ve never been an explosive guy more endurance for me. So this is something I need to work on…


#245

What is your Max squat?


#246

I really don’t know. 405 is the last max I’ve done back in Aug. I’m sure I could get that but there should be more.


#247

I’d go 40,45,50% in a 3 week wave with 10-15% of your max added as accommodating resistance.


#248

Jesus dude, I’m eating twice as much as you.

Solid day. Pleased with new floor press pr and getting back on an exercise that hurt me was good mentally.
I’ll keep the “hypertrophy” sets in until I hit a 300+ bench or my meet gets closer. Trying to fit as much volume in as I can recover from.

I was starving coming into this workout and had taken my protein home so I had nothing after lunch. Going to stuff the face!

Nice ME day


#250

You already pr’ed. Why fail 1rm?


#251

I’m learning how to tell when I’m done. Failing reps (a no no I get it) is something I’ve never done. I usually stop short of failure. I’ve noticed this recently. I am rarely grinding reps, they either go and go smooth or nope they don’t go at all… so it’s a bit of learning about me and my perception of effort really.

Is it disappointing? Sure… does it affect me? Not really it’s not life or death…I’ve got a spotter. :joy:

I’ll dial it in and know when to say when… I had more but not 15lbs more.


#252

It effects your nervous system as well as wearing you down physically.


#253

It better adapt then…


#254

Lol :rofl:


#255

Suck it, nervous system! You will submit!


#256

Woke and weighed.

272 lbs. I’ll take that!


#257

So I may have a slight stress fracture in my right ankle. Last night I decided to show my son I can do what he does.

He stands up from sitting on the couch and hops over a large foot stool (can’t spell autamen). Laughing and says you can’t do that old man. This has gone on for over a week. Last night I decided to show him the old man still has it.

I sat down on the couch, popped up, sprung over the piece of furniture, nearly hit my head on the ceiling, and landed like a peg legged pirate on the other side. This was no soft cat like landing but a stiff legged heel first jolt to the body that shook the house.

This morning…the leg I landed on just below the bump on the ankle is not feeling well.

I showed him! I’m too old for this shit…


#258

C’mon, Coach! You’re better than that - you know how to land!

Hope it’s not a fracture but the plus side is that you can kind of keep training with one of those. You might get a walking boot but you can still train your legs.


#259

Lol damn. That would definitely be something that I would do and get hurt doing it! Fingers crossed it is just a little agitated at the moment and not broken/fractured. At least you didn’t break the ottoman!


#260

Dude, wait until after you cut some weight before getting into stupid human trick contests with the progeny!
