Woke at 237.6 lbs, bit bloated.
Woke at 240.5 lbs, looking the same as yesterday. I’m guessing salt. Nothing else can account for that kind of a jump I don’t think.
Wow that’s a decent jump. 280 here you come lol
Reverse hyper, air squats, planks
You can get your bottom dollar I made sure my abs were firing and my back was ready
5x2 plates/231 lbs
2x10x297 lbs - first set beltless to test, second set loose 10 mm (which I could close further than last week by a hole) for safety
Close stance squat (feet two inches closer in)
2x10x297 lbs - belt again, by the end lower back was pretty pumped up but in a good way
Bodybuilder squat (close stance, high bar, no lockout)
2x15x154 lbs - after the first set I thought I could have gone heavier but when I had to rest/pause the second set my wisdom in staying light was revealed
100 total reps at 33 lbs, 10 second rests: 17, something like 3x7 then 5s to 90 and then 10
BB curls - aka curls in the mono
4x15x55 lbs - stretched hams, quads, back between sets
Done in an hour 20 minutes
Now off to first day of new job.
Good luck finding the wood stretcher!
Mark you’re awesome, great work mate.
Good luck on the new job.
Had a more satisfying day at work than I can remember in a long time. Couldn’t find the wood stretcher though @FlatsFarmer
Glad to hear that
If you ever find that youre after a sea change and you finish your trade, come move up to the coast and work with me
Cabinet makers and glaziers go pretty much hand in hand, there are 2 guys who are qualified cabbies who work with me
Brilliant trade to get in mate, glad you enjoy it
Band work, hand release push-ups
Wide grip bench press (pointer finger on rings)
CGBP to a 1-board
3x15 with 22 lbs on my back
CGBP to a 3-board
3x10 - fuck these
All up an hour and 10 minutes
I agree these are not nice. How were your wrists ?
Fine. My triceps shut down, though.
Woke at 238.5 lbs, looking about the same as the last couple of days. Hamstrings are currently experiencing some of the worst DOMS I’ve had in a while. A bit tight too, but TBH it’s hard to tell what’s DOMS and what’s tightness right now.
Woke at 239.1 lbs, bloating has finally gone down a bunch. DOMS might be subsiding too.
Yeah they be hard!!! Would have been a different story when you weighed 185
Oh yeah I think Mark ist doing great on bodyweight movements with his bodyweight. I am a little heavier than Mark (around 260 lbs) and believe me, bodyweight stuff gets really difficult once you increase in weight. When I was like 225-240 I could do like 8-10 pull ups without training them much. Nowadays (still not training them) it is more like 3-4.
I’m hoping I can still get 10 pull ups when I get to 260 lbs. I can tell that I’m slower now that I’m up 20 lbs. My brain has the same expectations (times on specific runs/sprints) but my body doesn’t comply. I forget that I’m heavier and just think my performance has decreased.
At 265/270 pull-ups are brutal for me. When I was 255 I could hit 5-7 easy. 3 is hard af
So was tying my shoelaces and wiping my backside.
