You have a great way with words mark. Quality
Woke at 249.1 lbs, looking less bloated again. Some of the drop is dehydration, but it shouldn’t be too much.
Molestation, I mean bodyweight day. In case anyone forgot, all I get are 10 second rests until I complete the rep total. Then I try to beat that number of sets next week. As usual, five deep breaths is my 10 second measure. Its accurate to within about four seconds, so chances are early on rests are closer to six seconds and later around 14.
Training at an outdoor park gym. I’m calisthenic as fuck.
I also know what to expect from last time so I’m starting with sets I know I can do without begging for the sweet release of death right from the start.
Arm circles, neck circles, some inverted rows
50 reps: 10s to 40, then 3, 2, 2, 3
25 reps: 5s
50 reps: 2s to 10, longer rest; 2s to 20, longer rest; 2s to 30, longer rest; 2s to 40 longer rest; 10s to 50
Didn’t time the longer rests. Just waited till my heart rate slowed (not long) and my breathing slowed (a little longer).
50 reps: 5s to 50
35 reps: 1s to 5 on rings, longer rest; 1s to 10 wide neutral, longer rest; 1s to 15 wide neutral, longer rest; 1s to 20 close neutral, longer rest; 1s to 25 close neutral, longer rest; 5s to 30 close neutral, longer rest; 5 to 30 close neutral
Left elbow still notably lacking in calmness of tits from the get go, but neutral grip is pretty much ok. Same deal as before with the longer rests.
80 reps: 20s to 80
Lying leg raise
50 reps: 10s to 50
All up an hour and 15 minutes. Felt longer.
But can you do a muscle up or that weird climbing ladder pull up bullshit
Give me a ladder and I can pull it around and then climb up it…
Some non training related notes:
- loud noise sucks, but I’ll put up with it if I’m being paid to. Especially because I’llprobabl7y have ear muffs. This includes music;
- I’m really bad at doing nothing. I need SOMETHING to focus on, even if it’s a TV show or video game. Just hanging around kills me
Yeah you look exactly like them dudes
I pictured you doing this beside a dude doing a ladderthinghy thing.
Woke at 249.3 lbs, looking similar to yesterday. Lats and triceps are pretty sore.
Woke at 249.6 lbs, looking similar to yesterday.
90/90, McGill big three
2x10x275 lbs - moved much better than last week. Kept the speed throughout
Close stance SSB squat
12x176 lbs - lost count and kind of got lost in the set just pumping out the reps. Should have stopped at 11.
2x25x70 lbs - last set took me by surprise. Ended up being rest/pause
55x44 lbs - one set, should have probably gone to 66 lbs
4x15x60 lbs - curled in the monolift. While wearing a shirt that says Powerlifting.
All up an hour and 20 minutes including three separate instances of helping out
I like your dedication, moved on from the power rack to the mono to do your Curls
I think you’re at the highest level already unless you want to do curls with a squat bar or deadlift bar or something
But did you put calibrated plates on it and those big as collars
Nah, empty bar. I can’t curl for shit unless I want to look like I’m dry heaving
Same. It’s weird. Little dudes be curling like 40kg pretty clean but it’s a bitch for me with 10-15kg in each hand. Maybe that’s the missing piece of my training
Probably not. I figure they just spent the same time we’ve spent learning to squat learning to curl instead.
I have literally never seen a little guy curling this much. I’ve seen plenty trying. I can only assume that much weight triggers epilepsy in some people, the way they try to curl.
I can strict curl 95 pounds for 5 solid reps. I feel strong. And hey, look at me; I’m a little guy!
