sounded like a hard session and progress along the way. Nice one bud
Yeah but it’s only one (two) part that are really hard
the bench 4x5 with short rest and then an amrap the same weight, I’m doing it for both bench and BB row.
The rest are not that hard the Z press is a rpe 9 or 10 but not going in doing it with a purpose.
My finisher is low stress but a lot of work in about a little under 10 minutes.
Lower body work is much more stress full I think.
Still a tight looking workout whatever way you put it. When you say “I’m getting much tighter” is that one of your goals? tighten up while adding strength.
Please don’t remind me I’ve legs tomorrow arrggg! have to remember my sick bag just in case lol
I might go with Queen or ACDC on the playlist.
Definitely agree. In an ideal week, my off days are after leg days.
It looks like things are going well now, and you’re adapting to the program. I’m excited to see the results in a month and a half.
Yeah things are going very well, some ups and downs but all in all, I’m happy.
And excited as well, to see if I’ve improved anything.
I’m losing weight at the moment so I’m a bit worried about if that takes away to much.

Was at my works gym, there were a lot of guys and gal’s I knew very good, so it ended up in a lot of long breaks.
DL was heavy almost from the gun, had to use mix grip for 130 and the working sets were hard, took too long pauses between sets, set 3, 4 and 5 were decent though.
Front squats I just killed them, damn they were good.
Finisher was just the right stuff.
Great day with friends, lifting not so stellar, but I’ll take it.
Btw, everybody talks about how hungry they are in here, is it contagious, I’m hungry now.

Expecting a drop within a couple of days.
No training today, badminton have been cancelled for the next 4 weeks. Damn, I can’t go the next two weeks and my buddy is of to Thailand the following 2 weeks.
So I’ll dig deep in the shoe closet and find the old running shoes… Maybe.

OHP 45 kg was too much weight the last couple of sets was grinding. If I’ll do the program again, the 70 % day will be lowered to about 50 %.
Would have done a bit less than last week on CGBP, but actually ended up doing almost the same.
Finisher a bit less weight a bit more reps. Bodybuilding.
@mortdk how long are you planning on running you own program or at least this training block? How will you determine if it has been successful?
I’m doing 3 cycles of 4 weeks, this is the last cycle.
Then I’ll do 3 weeks of a “build for bad’sh” thing
first week 6 sessions of 5,4,3,2,1 reps of the big lifts ending with a single at about 80% second week 4 sessions ending with a single at about 90%
and the final week 2 sessions ending at hopefully 100% of my previous max If I’m strong this week I’ll just max out here, otherwise I’ll do a max test the week after.
I’ve found that deloading isn’t very good for me before making a max effort.
Sounds like a solid plan. It will be interesting to see where your maxes are. Also maybe consider some amrap tests as the program could improve rep strength without impacting in 1RM
That is a great idea Simo… I might go with a amrap at 80 - 85%. I’ve got all my old repmaxes written down.
So end cycle 3.
Maybe one cycle 531 PR set FSL PR, Or just the three week PR set and FSL PR. Then build for bad thing 3 weeks then MAX lift.
