Pausing DL 200 kg/40 Push Ups, Pushing Squat 20RM and OH Press 1RM

07-May-2019
20 kg 5x5 back squat, 3x10 power clean, 2x5 waiter split squat each side
35 kg 3x10 oh press, 2x10 push press
80 kg 3x3 pendlay row
60 kg 1x3 back squat
80 kg 1x3 back squat
92 kg 2x10 back squat, rpe 9.5, 9.5, my legs felt pumped after second set
1 warming up round sled push
2 rounds sled + 50 kg, best time 37 sec
2 rounds sled + 35 kg, best time 32 sec
total rpe 8

Mb = Body mass = 91 kg
M1 = sled + 50 = 95 kg
M2 = sled + 35 = 80 kg
t1 = 37 s
t2 = 32 s
c = coefficient dependent on friction between sled and carpet
Assume c independent of speed and load
Power outputs
P1 = c*(Mb + M1)/t1 = c*(91+95)/37 = c * 5.03
P2 = c*(Mb + M2)/t2 = c*(91+80)/32 = c * 5.34

Thus, I estimate that I produced a greater average power on the lighter loaded sled pushes
should i go with the M2 loading rather than M1 due to the higher power output?

muscle tear yesterday in my tummy, could be a cracked rib but i guess it’s a muscle due to that the pain is a bit away inside of the ribs
it’s painful too cough and fart, some moves are painful and some are not
i guess it’s a couple a weeks without heavy training because bracing is painful

tough luck man, hope you’ll recover quickly.
Was it on a pendlay row it happened or something else, because it sounds a bit like a rib broken or bruised.

warning signs (that i of course ignored) started with the heavy bag, then snap during pendlay row

i think it’s a muscle tear, it’s healing quite fast, i have cracked ribs before and that took 2 months to recover
