#681

6x1: front squat 133 kg
6x5: military press 75 kg
6x3: pullup 21 kg


#682

1x4, 4x3: deadlift 189 kg
3x10: db floor press 46 kg
3x10: reverse grip cheat curl 49 kg

Left elbow seems to be gradually getting better.


#683

3x10: Zercher squat 89 kg
1x12: pullup
2x20: military press 53 kg

Only one set of pullups, to take it easy on that elbow - higher-rep pulling seems to aggravate it more than anything else. Also stopped putting foam pipe insulation around the bar on the Zerchers, which I thought would make them easier and a bit less painful, but apparently it makes no difference and I’m just fine without it.

3x10: db floor press 46 kg


#688

1x10, 2x8: Zercher squat 95 kg
2x20: military press 53 kg

No pullups, to let my left elbow keep healing. And wore a shortsleeved shirt for the Zerchers for the first time - didn’t hurt, though we’ll see how scraped the skin looks tomorrow. Maybe it didn’t hurt only cause I lift in an unheated room and the bar’s pretty cold so it made the skin numb, ha.


#689

6x1: front squat 133 kg
3x8: front squat 89 kg
6x5: military press 75 kg
4x4, 2x3: pullup 21 kg


#690

1x4: deadlift 229 kg
1x3: deadlift 209 kg
3x8: cheat curl 49 kg
3x10: db floor press 46 kg


#691

3x12: Zercher squat 95 kg
3x12: pullup
2x20: military press 53 kg

The bar on the Zerchers seems to want to pull me forward more when there’s more weight, need to work on keeping things braced.


#692

6x1: front squat 133 kg
1x8: front squat 89 kg
1x20: back squat 89 kg
1x6, 5x5: military press 75 kg
6x4: pullup 21 kg


#693

1x7: deadlift 209 kg (could not quite lock out the 8th rep)
3x10: db floor press 46 kg
3x8: cheat curl 49 kg

I’m starting to think that if I train higher-rep deads, I will be able to deadlift 200 kilos for 10 reps in a few months’ time.


#694

3x12: Zercher squat 95 kg
3x12: pullup
2x20: military press 53 kg

Went back to using foam around the bar on the Zerchers after the first set, cause the scrapes on my inner elbows are starting to look pretty bad and bloody. No real benefit in making them worse. Depth on the third set was still mostly pretty lousy.


#695

5x5: front squat 119 kg
3x8: military press 75 kg
6x3: pullup 22 kg

I haven’t done these sort of medium-rep squats in a long long time, I think they’ll be a useful change of pace.

1x3: deadlift 219 kg
3x10: db floor press 46 kg
