Friday's Workout

50 Seconds rest between each set. 1.5 minutes between each exercise.

Clean & Press: 10x2 @ 185 lbs.
Curl Grip Chin-ups: 10x2 @ 45
BB Bench: 10x1 @ 265
Deads: 20x1 @ 325

Abs:
Crunches 4x30


OVERVIEW
Back in action.... again... my work just comes in waves and I got it all smoothed out. I figured I start at 50 seconds rest again and build back up. I've also added weight to everything but Clean and Press. Felt strong on all except Cleans and Press.

Wednesday's Workout

50 Seconds rest between each set. 1.5 minutes between each exercise.

Squat: 20x2 @ 315 lbs.
JS Rows: 12x2 @ 205
DB Curl and Press: 6x4 @ 50
Dips: 12x3 @ 90

OVERVIEW
Workout was good and very taxing. Upped the JS Rows since I decided to do just squats instead of Clean and Squat. Weight moved very nicely. Next stop 45 Seconds.

Friday's Workout

45 Seconds rest between each set. 1.5 minutes between each exercise.

Clean & Press: 15x2 @ 185 lbs. took a minute rest after set 8 and 13.
Rope Grip Chin-ups: 10x2 @ 25
BB Bench: 10x1 @ 265
Deads: 20x1 @ 325

Abs:
Crunches 4x30

OVERVIEW
I was sucking wind today for some reason. I had to take extra time for Clean and Press. As for Chin-ups, I wanted to try something different so I took my lifting straps and held on to them instead of a chin-up bar. Let me tell you, my grip was done after set 8. As for not making the time limit I will stay at 45 seconds rest for this workout one more time so I can nail all the sets and rest time allowed.

Monday's Workout

45 Seconds rest between each set. 1.5 minutes between each exercise.

Squat: 20x2 @ 315 lbs.
JS Rows: 12x2 @ 205
DB Curl and Press: 6x4 @ 50
Dips: 12x3 @ 90

Abs:
Crunches 4x30


OVERVIEW
Sorry for not keeping up with the journal, I've been working like a dog lately and it's been hard to make it to the gym with any energy and that is counting martial arts training.
I've decided to try and cut down in weight a little so I've been ramping down my cals. to about 2800 ish. I'll keep you guys posted on that progress too.
This workout was hard as hell. Restricting cals. really affected my workout. After this week I'll be moving the rest time to 40 seconds so I can give my body a chance to get use to the cutting. We shall see what happens.

Default Legs giving out...

Well I trained in Muay Thai last night and my legs were jelly going into training and now they are just non-functional. I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to run into the same problem I had with 5x5 with the volume of squatting I had to do. I think since I'm upping my training sessions I might have to lower my squat volume just so I can make it through training and be able to perform proper techniques. Next time I'm going to shoot for 15 sets of 2 instead of 20 sets of 2 and see if that will helps.

^^ yeah, its so hard to balance the two, or give enough recovery time so that it doesnt matter. You may be a lot different, but for me its the wieght, not the volume. I could squat 285 for one set of 5, and still not be able to kick the next day. If dropping the volume doesnt work for you, I would suggest spacing it out more, maybe heavy squatting once every two weeks or so, going the same route I did with deads.

I hope that helps, or atleast sparks some ideas dave.

I think your right, and the more I think about it the more makes sense for me to drop some weight because I'm trying to cut down on cals. to get to a lighter weight and being on a "cut" diet makes it very hard to move heavier weight, especially with the limited rest time. I think I'll drop some of the weight on the other exercises and see what that does.

Wednesday's Workout

45 Seconds rest between each set. 1.5 minutes between each exercise.

Clean & Press: 15x2 @ 185 lbs.
Curl Grip Chin-ups: 15x2 @ 45
BB Bench: 10x1 @ 265
Deads: 20x1 @ 315


OVERVIEW
This was a lot better than last time but still very taxing. My hamstrings are still sore from squats and got more worked from Cleans so I lowered my deads my a little and I was moving the weight a little better. I'm going to start incorporating more core work because I've been slacking in that area and that is the most important.

My legs still feel a little weak but lowering the volume always feels nice. Good workout today. Next time I'll be down to 40 seconds of rest. Can't wait to get past 30.
