50 reps of deads and squats is killer. Doesn't help that I superset my ab work on deadlift day ... hanging leg raises .. talk about grip work!

mobility
bar x 5
100lb x 5
125lb x 5
150lb x 3

195lb x 3
210lb x 3
240lb x 3 (+2)

Had another sh!t day ... I dunno what happened. This week has been majorly up and down for me.

Pull Through

Thoughts

Well this was Friday's workout but I didn't get to posting it until today. It was a very lack luster and low energy workout. I have to figure out what is going on with me.

Monday November 22nd, 2010

BW: 190.6lb

Bench
bar x 10
95lb x 5
115lb x 5
135lb x 3

155lb x 3
175lb x 3
200lb x 3 (+6)

135lb, 145lb, 155lb, 165lb, 165lb - 5x10

Well I just squeezed the reps I needed this time. I was really worried I'd have a repeat of last week. Oh yeah, I missed the last 2 reps of my 5x10 on the last set but it's still by far the heaviest I've done on that so I'm still happy.

Chin ups
bw x 6,5,4,3,2

I got one more rep on the first set but I absolutely gassed out by the end.


Thoughts

My buddy is gone tues-thurs this week so I decided to just go mon and friday and repeat my sh!tty days I had last week. I couldn't stand looking at those crap numbers scarring up my 5/3/1 sheet. So I guess I'm "redoing" week 2 sort of...

Hoping to get my squat back to where it should be this friday.

About the same as last week which I'm not too happy about...

Pull Through
skipped - back was all jacked up

Thoughts

Well I have a few theories of why I can't seem to progress:

1) I shouldn't have made the big increase
2) 11 reps is (week 1) is too high to use the theoretical calculator
3) I'm fucked in the head
4) I'm fucked in the body

Not too sure how to progress from here. I can either

1) Continue on as I am and just do the best I can
2) Reset the weight back down

Are you talking about progressing your squat?

Yes I'm talking about my squat.

I went from 225 x 11 on week one to 240lb x 5 on week 2 (twice) ... which is a 25lb decrease according to the theoretical max calculator.

WTF is a theoretical max calculator?

You shouldnt need a calculator to train dude.

Lets see a squat vid, then we can work on what to do to progress it.IME squats need a good variety of special exercises to keep progress going.

That's kind of the basis of the 5/3/1 program. Since you're always lifting different weight you need a way to compare each max effort set. I don't use the theoretical max as anything other than numbers for comparison sake and something to shoot for the next week.

Theoretical max = weight + weight * reps * .033

I should definitely put up a squat vid. I'll try to get one this week.

Do you max reps on your last set every workout Dub?
