OK Im stoked and am going to ramble on about a PR I got today. All the damn work. The grunting, spitting, cursing, pissing, bleeding, lets not forget eating, and hell that?s just the FUN shit that we look forward to, is paying off. Instead of just have a new thread for every little goal I get be it a PR, a size gain etc. Ill just make this my official progress thread. Things are just going damn good as of late and hopefully I will be checking in fairly regular with something new. Just since making things simple lifting heavy stuff and eating for my goals/performance and less thinking about it the damn bricks are being CRUSHED.
So lets start this thread off with a good one.
OK been training by instinct. I have just set exercises I must do squat bench dl etc. then add in other stuff what I feel I need, lots of unilateral leg work to try and get the bum leg up to speed both neurally and strenght wise etc.. And also don?t follow a rep or set scheme I just give my self a time limit 20 mins and I have to just go squat, or bench. Usually heavy but just depends on the day some days less load more reps but ALWAYS a a killer work out usually in the 80%+ range then every now and again Ill feel it and go for a PR.
Well been thinking its been about 6+ weeks since I have done a Squat 1 rm. And went for a pr. I moved here to Thailand been training hard etc new gym. Going well. Have changed it up a bit and use a 14? box that brings My hip replacement having not so damn flexible ass well below parallel but after the first week or so that new lower box was helping and felt good been doing lots of Box squats on it reps that are touch and go to assure in going the same depth all the time etc. So figure hell maybe a PR tomorrow go for a solid 20lb increase to 200kg/450lbs and to a 2? lower box that would be a nice achievement up from 430lbs. Well see.
Well not the best sleep wakle upo thinking about the workout to come and its one of those rare days im seemingly beat before I enter the gym I have doubts F%$K I hate that. So I eat my damn 1000+ k/cal oats milk and fruit breakfast and take a short nap. Wake up a bit better but still in doubt but slam a bit more milk and head to the gym. Either way ill get a good workout if Im not feeling the PR I just do what feel right and nail the PR another day.
SHIT the gym owners not here and his wife is controlling the radio strike 2 normally I walk in and he cranks on the hardcore even while he?s eating break fast oh well lets do this.
Set up my stuff get the projected plates I want. Set my timer and GO. Start with just one plate. Set up drop and do 10 easy reps Damn they feel like crap just lose sloppy and slow not even the foot placement feels right. Ok two plates more of the same nial 5 easy reps but SHIT again jerky etc. Three plates set up (doubt) drop in 5 easy sloppy loose reps again. DAMN IT ok just not going to be the day time to adjust and just salvage a good workout. Slap on plate 4. Shoulder the load step back BAM all the sudden it all falls into place. 180kg and felt like Butta baby dropped down tight but smooth and fast, exploded out of the whole continued and held back at three reps. HMM?? Maybe not all bad. Went for the same load. Again yet even better three solid reps easy, smooth fast. Confidence built lets do this.
Slap on for the PR no wasting time 200kg/450lbs. Unrack, step back, set up, BREATH, drop nailed it easy as pie, no thinking just doing it dropped BAM that?s a double at 200kg/450 lbs a new PR and 2? lower than prior PR. SWEET. That was cake slap on ten more kg. 210kg/472lbs and some change. BAM smooth baby nailed it that?s a 42+lb pr. STOKED. 5kg More?? That felt good it was a 42+lb PR. I know I can get 5kg more. NO im to close just do it, pull the dimes off slap on another plate 5 plates 220kg/495lbs a 65 lb PR. Set up, drop BAM fast out of the hole, it slows about 5 inche up But NAILED it had enough going coming out of the bottom to press through it.
Nailed 5 plates, and a 65 lb PR. SWEET. All that damn work. The grunting, spitting, cursing, pissing, bleeding, lets not forget eating, and hell that?s just the FUN shit that we look forward to, is paying off.
Just had to share. Hopefully more to come. Havent maxed on anything g in a bit so its about that time.
