PRESS TRAINING - Mesocycle 24 Week 2

This workout took place on Wednesday.

Overhead Press:
175 lbs x 2 reps
195 lbs x FAIL
175 lbs x 2 reps
175 lbs x 1 rep
The OH Squats from Tuesday's workout really messed up my shoulders. They were incredibly sore and the bar wasn't moving. So, what I am going to do is shift OH Squats to Deadlift Training day or I might just drop them for now. Clearly I am able to maintain strength on them so it's no big deal. Regarding the OHP: next week will be better. My shoulders won't be sore. And given that they were so sore I think I did reasonably well.

Weighted Pull-ups:
BW + 50 lbs x 3 reps
BW + 50 lbs x 4 reps
Last rep on the second set is questionable at best lol...

BodyWeight Pull-ups:
BW x 11 reps
BW x 10 reps
I am going to start doing these again. My goal next week is to take 20 lbs and do 10 reps straight. The gym was about to close so I had to rush through this. I couldn't do my normal rest intervals and that held me back.

Swiss Ball Jack Pikes:
BW x 12 reps x 3 sets

My work hours are pretty darn insane. On some days I come back home by 9 pm or even 10 pm. Actually, this is most of the time. So, I have been very very worried about squeezing in a workout on the weekdays. Well, I was contemplating setting up a home gym but the owner of K11 Academy and Five Fitness Clubs; Mr. Kaizzad Capadia has offered to keep the gym open beyond the regular hours of operation just for me. This is really incredible of him and I am very grateful for this.

DEADLIFT TRAINING - Mesocycle 24 Week 3

This is last night's training. So as usual Saturday nights are Deadlift nights. Got Kanishk, Devraj and me all doing pulls. The only one missing was Bijoy. Hell, even Kaizzad sir turned up just to show off a 340 bench!

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
415 lbs x 1 rep

Deadlift Work Sets:
465 lbs x 1 rep
445 lbs x 4 reps
475 lbs x 1 rep
455 lbs x 3 reps
485 lbs x FAIL
475 lbs x 1 rep
This was pretty insane. I think having this job tires me out so my form wasn't as awesome as I would've liked. Plus, 485 is 98.5% of my max....it would be hard for me to do that after doing so much other stuff in the 90%+ range. That last rep with 475 is what Devraj refers to as my accession into heaven lol...watch the video and you'll see why.

Overhead Squats:
135 lbs x 3 reps
Gym was shutting down and we had to call it quits.

Facepulls:
75 lbs x 15 reps x 3 sets

It was a pretty big day for all of us. Kanishk managed to hit a 315 Deadlift for sets of 2, 3 and 3. Devraj pulled his first ever 315. Devraj's gf pulled a 175. All in all it was a decent session.

PRESS TRAINING - Mesocycle 24 Week 3

This is Wednesday's training. Kaizzad sir is really awesome. He kept the gym open specially for us to finish our training. I had work till 9 pm so by the time I got to the gym it was 10 and the gym was scheduled to close in an hour. Thankfully Kaizzad sir allowed us to hang around and train

Overhead Press:
165 lbs x 4 reps x 4 sets
I don't think I've ever done this much volume at such a heavy weight. This is 89.8% of my max.

BodyWeight Pull-ups:
10 + 10 + 9 = 29
I am going to get back into the habit of doing these.

Short workout.
