Wisey's Training Log - Forging Resilience

Yo.

New here!

I was logging on an old forum, that basically is just crickets nowadays. A mate of mine is on here, so I thought I’d check it out…so here we are.

Background is all strength training. I like lifting the thing. I like chasing pointless numbers.

I’ve competed a few times over the years, maybe 10-12 meets, nothing crazy, just honest efforts. Basically a shitty backyard powerlifter who enjoys the journey almost more than the destination.

Best lifts on the platform are:
Squat/Bench/Deadlift - 195/142.5/252.5kg weighing 98.9kg
Best gym lifts currently - 200/150/272.5kg

Squats have been shit last couple years, tendonitis ripping me a new one over that time.
Have spent a lot of time hopefully sorting that out recently, and have been back regularly squatting for about 6 weeks now and they are feeling quite good.

Whatever.

My training is simple. I basically am doing only two difference workouts currently, on a bit of an opened ended block. Resting between 2 and 3 days typically between them. Working ok for the moment bringing me back towards heavier numbers - was sick as hell over xmas, forced deload. Decided to ‘rebuild’ to start back.

Thanks fella

G’day Wisey good to see you get a log on here. I will tag you in my log so it is easier for you to find it. It is going to be good to see your rebuild and now much easier for you to track how I am going with the program. Here is to a massive 2022.

Thank you for the welcoming @SvenG and @simo74

Added some burpees yesty, influenced by @simo74 … absolutely terrible at them. Only way is up. Or down. Depending on your perspective.

@guineapig really powerlifting should just be deadlifting. :stuck_out_tongue:
