DEADLIFT TRAINING - Mesocycle 25 Week 1

This is what happened on Saturday.

Firstly, Friday was a difficult day because I had a fever and a slight throat ache. Later that evening it developed into a cough. On Saturday I felt ok all day..just a little meh but I shrugged it off thinking it wasn't a big deal - especially since the fever had left. Well, I worked out @ 8 pm and I took a 2 hour nap from 5 to 7. When I woke up at 7 pm I had a pretty nasty cough but I figured it wasn't a big deal. Big Mistake on my part.

The goal was to start Singles Scene and do 7 reps with a minimum of 90% of my max after working up to a relative max for that day.

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
425 lbs x 2 reps

Deadlift Work Sets:
465 lbs x 1 rep @ 93%
465 lbs x 1 rep @ 93%
500 lbs x FAIL
475 lbs x 1 rep @ 95%
465 lbs x 1 rep @ 93%
455 lbs x 1 rep @ 91%
455 lbs x 1 rep @ 91%
465 lbs x 1 rep @ 93%

Damn this was hard. Because of that cough I just couldn't keep my core tight and everything felt "off". I should've done the smart thing and gone home but I just grinded through it. Y'all can see that on almost all the reps the lockout was an issue but I just stuck through it like a bull lol.

So the plan is that next week will be a repeat of this workout. Hopefully this week will be good to me and I won't go in to the gym next Saturday feeling like this.

This happened last night. It was one of those nights.....I went in late and Kaizzad was awesome enough to keep the gym open for me extra time.

Front Squats:
285 lbs x 1 rep @ 90%
255 lbs x 5 reps x 3 sets @ 81%
My legs were torched. Firstly I was sore as hell from Sunday's Pistol Squats and then I did this.

Back Squats:
315 lbs x 1 rep
I think my form is improving slowly.

Swiss Ball Jack Pikes:
BW x 12 reps x 2 sets

PRESS TRAINING - Mesocycle 25 Week 1

This is last night's workout. I've worked out 4 days in a row and each workout has been hell. I am really looking forward to the next 3 days of rest I have. I will do some mobility drills on Thursday just to work on hip mobility but other than that there is nothing much planned.

Unilateral Overhead Press:
65 lbs x 5 reps
70 lbs x 5 reps
70 lbs x 5 reps
75 lbs x 2 reps
I am going to be alternating Unilateral Overhead Presses with Overhead Presses on a weekly basis.

BodyWeight Pull-ups:
13 + 10 + 10 + 9 = 42 reps
Decent. Gonna work on adding reps every week. I still want that 50 reps in 4 sets combo.

Facepulls:
75 lbs x15 reps x 2 sets

Cable WoodChops:
25 lbs x 15 reps
37.5 lbs x 15 reps
37.5 lbs x 15 reps
This was hard.

245 lbs x 5 reps
295 lbs x 5 reps
