DEADLIFT TRAINING - Mesocycle 23 Week 3

Felt really out of it today....

Deadlift Warm-ups:
Mobility Drills
135 lbs x 7 reps
245 lbs x 5 reps
295 lbs x 5 reps
345 lbs x 3 reps
385 lbs x 3 reps

Deadlift Work Sets:
415 lbs x 2 reps
455 lbs x 3 reps
455 lbs x 2 reps
415 lbs x 4 reps
I failed on the 4th rep on the set with 455 and then on the second set with 455 I failed on the 3rd rep attempt. This is normal I guess....one cannot expect to progress in leaps and bounds every single time.

Band Pull-throughs: 2 White Bands + 1 Black Band x 15 reps x 4 sets

Dumbbell Windmills: 35 lbs x 10 reps x 3 sets

Video for today:

PRESS TRAINING - Mesocycle 23 Week 3

This is yesterday's workout...

Overhead Press:
145 lbs x 4 reps
155 lbs x 3 reps
165 lbs x 3 reps
175 lbs x 2 reps
165 lbs x 3 reps
I'm gonna start a new progression scheme for this next week onwards. I am gonna work up to a relative max and then I am going to do 3-5 sets of 1-5 reps with a minimum of 90% of my max. I will try SDT Progression once I've found a good base to work with. This is the last week of Quality Volume Training for this exercise. I've given it 3 weeks. Now it's time to aggressively build up my strength.

Close Grip Bench Press:
185 lbs x 8 reps x 3 sets
I am very pleased about this. I am going to try my best to work up to 3x10 with 185. Once I get that, I'm gonna increase the weight. If I play my cards correctly, 225 shouldn't be too far off for me.

Unilateral Overhead Press: 65 lbs x 5 reps x 2 sets

Inverted Rows: BW x 15 reps x 3 sets

Land-Mines: 45 lbs x 10 reps x 4 sets

Facepulls: 77 lbs x 15 reps x 2 sets

Decent session. Here's the video:

PISTOL SQUAT TRAINING - Mesocycle 23 Week 4

This is yesterday's workout

Pistol Squats:
10 + 10 + 10 = 30 reps
Solid work!

Weighted Pull-ups:
BW + 45 lbs x 3 reps x 3 sets
Could've done more...

Close Grip Bench Press:
185 lbs x 3 reps
205 lbs x 3 reps
215 lbs x 3 reps
225 lbs x 1 rep
235 lbs x 0 reps
This was weird. 225 should've been 2 but my spotter touched the bar so I discounted the first rep. Then, my new spotter needed to give me a helping hand on the 235 set. The video shows this better.

BodyWeight Pull-ups: BW x 10 reps x 2 sets

Front Planks: BW x 60 seconds x 3 sets

Decent session...
