Not sure if I’m still in time for the challenge, but here I go anyway.
I’m 40, been sing 5/3/1 fairly consistently over the last several years. Today I’m 215lbs.
My goals are to lose some body fat and increase strength and overall wellness. I’d like to get my strength numbers up as well. I’ve sucked at bench and ohp for a long time.
Currently I’m at:
Squat-haven’t done in a while due to knee acting up
Ohp-not sure. Been following one of poliquin’s plans I found here. 4 weeks left to go on it.
I look forward to the process and any and all advice you all would like to share.
Beginning Wendler’s Limited Time/Widowmaker. However, I’m on phase 3 of Poliquin’s Overhead Fix Plan, so I’m following that of OHP days. Which also means no widowmaker set.
The day’s work:
Behind the neck press w/ bands. The plan calls for chains, but I don’t have those available, so I’m going with black Rogue bands and 75#.
Widowmaker Set - 285x20
65# x 10 (left & right)
70# x 26 (left & right)
This was the first workout back from winter break. I was tired and had eaten like garbage. The presses were tough at the top but I ground through them
