Persistent Guy's Training Log Continues


#762

3x10: Zercher squat 99 kg
6x3: pullup 24 kg
3x10: military press 69 kg

Went lighter on the presses and used a false grip, thumb seems OK with that.


#763

1x4, 7x3: front squat 119 kg
3x12: pullup
2x20: military press 55 kg


#764

Wasn’t supposed to lift today, but work was stressful, so…

1x3: deadlift 229 kg
1x3: deadlift 209 kg


#765

Deadlifting on what was supposed to be a day off has left me with the right side of my lower back still sore a few days later, so let’s do a deload week. Now that’s something I haven’t done in a couple of years.

3x10: Zercher squat 69 kg
3x10: military press 49 kg
6x3: pullup

Wow, that was easy and pleasant.


#766

Deload continues… back’s feeling almost normal, but not quite 100%. I think it’s more the top of my right glute than my back, really.

8x3: front squat 89 kg
3x12: db floor press 32 kg
3x8: straight bar curl 29 kg


#767

5x3: deadlift 129 kg
3x10: military press 49 kg
6x3: pullup

Deload done!


#768

3x10: Zercher squat 99 kg
6x3: pullup 24 kg
3x10: military press 69 kg

Feeling OK - back seems 100%, glute just a tiny bit tense sometimes but 97% or so, left elbow and right thumb also better than before the deload week.

Let’s try switching to a push-pull split for at least a few weeks. So, today’s a push day.

1x12, 2x10: Zercher squat 99 kg
3x8: military press 69 kg
1x12, 2x10: db floor press 32 kg (both arms at once)

I’ve been doing the floor presses unilaterally for years, getting this kind of weight into position by myself is kinda awkward and putting it down is even worse, but it’s doable, and doing both arms is different enough that I think it’s worth it.


#774

First pull day.

1x6, 2x5: pause deadlift 143 kg
6x3: pullup 24 kg

Should also do some bentover rows or curls or something, but didn’t.


#775

8x3: front squat 119 kg (set every minute)
3x10: db floor press 46 kg
2x20: military press 49 kg


#776

5x3: deadlift 189 kg (set every minute)
3x10: bentover row 69 kg
3x12: pullup

Pullups definitely felt harder than when supersetting them with presses.

Well, that completes a week of push-pull split.


#777

3x10: Zercher squat 99 kg
3x8: military press 69 kg
3x12: db floor press 32 kg (both arms)

Still need to figure out a good way to get the dbs into position for the floor presses, and put them down again.


#778

1x5, 2x4: pause deadlift 157 kg
6x3: pullup 24 kg
3x8: cheat curl 49 kg


#779

8x3: front squat 119 kg
3x12: db floor press 46 kg
2x20: military press 49 kg


#780

5x3: deadlift 189 kg

Yeah, yeah, I know. I should do more. I could, too. Sure, my parents were visiting from another country, but they left at 7 PM, so that’s just an excuse.


#781

3x10: Zercher squat 101 kg
3x8: military press 69 kg
1x20, 1x18: db floor press 32 kg
