Persistent Guy's Training Log Continues


#862

1x4, 7x3: front squat 119 kg
3x8: db floor press 49 kg
2x20: military press 53 kg


#863

So, I messed up my right glute putting down a deadlift again… not as badly as back in July, though. Still, not gonna get much done today and might need to take some time off. I can do unweighted pullups, at least.

1x4: deadlift 209 kg
3x12: pullup


#864

This is gonna need a bit more time to heal. I tried doing some light goblet squats last Friday and made things worse eight reps into the second set, so I took some days completely off, and tried lifting very light again today.

1x10: goblet squat 12 kg
1x10: goblet squat 17 kg
1x10: goblet squat 22 kg
1x10: front squat 49 kg
1x10: front squat 59 kg
3x10: military press 49 kg

Those squats were enough to make my glute feel tight, and since I aggravated it already last Friday I didn’t want to make it worse again. It’s not so bad for the last couple of days, though, bending things far enough to put on pants or socks isn’t a struggle anymore, and it doesn’t really hurt walking or sitting or doing normal daily stuff.


#865

1x5: pause deadlift 49 kg
1x5: pause deadlift 59 kg
1x5: pause deadlift 69 kg
1x5: pause deadlift 79 kg
3x12: pullup

So I can do really light deads without messing things up. A lot of minor aches in other places have gotten a lot better with all this time off, too. Even my left knee, which was normally fine but would hurt if I put much weight on it while kneeling, is suddenly normal. But the bad part is, I’m starting to realize just how nice not working and not being tired feel.


#866

2x5: back squat 49 kg
2x5: back squat 59 kg
1x5: back squat 69 kg
3x8: db floor press 42 kg

Posterior chain gets a good deal of tension on those one-arm floor presses, so I also kept it light there.

1x5: deadlift 69 kg
1x5: deadlift 79 kg
1x5: deadlift 89 kg

Slowly getting normaler and normaler.

#873

Took a few days off for Christmas, back now.

1x5: pause deadlift 129 kg
1x5: pause deadlift 149 kg
1x5: pause deadlift 159 kg
3x12: pullup

Being careful with the deads as I still feel the top of that glute a bit, but I’m probably fine. Also, a pic from Christmas Eve morning, because if you’re gonna take barefoot pics in the snow, you might as well take your shirt off, right? I now weigh about 88 kilos and am still a bit fatter than when I started lifting at age 30 and 62 kilos, but getting close to being just as vascular and defined as I was back then.


#874

1x3: back squat 89 kg
1x3: back squat 99 kg
4x3: back squat 109 kg
2x3: back squat 119 kg
1x8: db floor press 46 kg
2x8: db floor press 49 kg
1x20: military press 49 kg
1x20: military press 53 kg

Still getting used to getting under that bar for back squats. Triples seem like a good way to get decent volume and practice the setup a reasonable amount of times.


#875

1x3: deadlift 149 kg
1x3: deadlift 159 kg
1x3: deadlift 169 kg
2x3: deadlift 179 kg

3x8: military press 69 kg


#877

3x4: pause deadlift 169 kg
2x12, 1x10: pullup
3x8: cheat curl 49 kg

Didn’t make 12 on the last set of pullups because I tried to cut the rest period too short.


#878

8x3: back squat 119 kg
3x8: db floor press 49 kg
2x20: military press 51 kg


#879

1x3: deadlift 179 kg
1x5: deadlift 189 kg

3x1: front squat 119 kg
3x1: front squat 121 kg
1x10, 2x8: front squat 89 kg
3x8: military press 69 kg

Trying to do a few heavier front squats, then a few light sets with short rests. Got all those working sets done in under 10 minutes today, and got over 30 reps total which I guess is decent volume. We’ll see how this works out long term. Front squats seem to be the lift where I get tired of doing the same set-rep schemes and want to switch things up the most often.

Also not doing dips, to see if they’ve been the cause of the soreness in my left shoulder, which also doesn’t like benching or even pushups…
