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


#543

You got this, I’m confident! Just commit and the deadlift will come off the ground. The push ups will just be a matter of toughing through it.


#544

PRs are never easy. Don’t psych yourself out of anything before you actually do it, you’re a strong guy.


#545

Sounds like a good plan. I’d suggest not putting in a lot of volume on top of the lifts.

Push ups is another beast, but you’ve hammered them and then you’ve been resting a fair bit, so you’ll come back strong.

You should absolutely have 180 by now, the 200 is in there somewhere as well.

Will be cheering along.

I love these…


#548

You should be able to do 13-14 pull-ups. Any reason for the fat-guy pull-ups? I can do around that number, and you can deadlift more than me. I’m guessing you’re at a comparable weight with me, give or take 20 pounds or so; haha.


#549

my elbows are a bit cranky, i do the fat guy pull ups with fat gripz to rehab my elbows. my elbows are the reason why i had to change goal from muscle up to push ups. before my elbow pain became to severe i did 12 straight regular pull ups.


#550

Ah. Have you tried doing them on anything other than a straight chin-up bar? I heard using a neutral grip helps with elbow pain of that manner.


#551

Im a big fan of towel pullups and using fatgripz


#552

i did mostly neutral grip, but eventually i couldn’t even tolerate them.


#553

i’ll try towel pullups soon

Body weight: 89.4 kg
Length: 182 cm

20 kg 1x5 front squat
40 kg 1x5 front squat
60 kg 1x5 front squat
73 kg 5x5 front squat, pleased with this
20 kg some bench press
60 kg 1x5 bench press
80 kg 1x6 bench press, the push ups before affected this one
total rpe 8

This is the day to evaluate my goals
push ups: 1x33, goal: 1x40, i guess at least 6 more months to get there
DL: 170 kg (almost had 180 kg), goal: 200 kg, i guess at least 2 more years to get there

it didn’t really pan out the way i hoped, but then i was seriously sick a year ago.
i am pleased with the effort i have put in, i have done my training like a pious monk does his chores
i’ll take 6 months of much less DL from now and train for high rep squats instead
that should be fun.


#558

and then this

DAMN Bono, I was certain you’d had at least 180 kg …

Maybe just maybe you’re having to many sets prior to you top lift.

But dialing back DL would probably be good Keep it in the rotation once a week for a single at 80 - 85 % and one or two backoff sets.
Then you’ll pull 200 kg later this year.


#559

i’m sure i’m in the neighborhood of 180 kg, but 200 not even close

i’m looking forward to be doing less DL now, maybe my body will grow better with less frequent DL training
