good shit i.dub. and remember. dont weight your success against anybody elses. you are you and they are them. it may not even be genetics. you and him arent together 24/7 so it may not even be genetics. he can just be doing something you arent or whatever. just keep at it my man and you will progress.

when you try to catch up to other people, you somtimes tend to lose focus of the goal at hand. you will be aight

Wednesday July 2/2008

Well I was camping on the long weekend so my nutrition was shitty for 4 days.

Squats
- bar x 5
- 135lbs x 5
- 175lbs x 3
- 195lbs x 2
- 215lbs x 1
- 230lbs 3x5,1x1

Once again poor nutrition/rest coming into it blocked my way on this one. It was like hitting a brick wall on the 4th set. Very frustrated.

Bench
- bar x 6
-135lbs x 4
-165lbs x 2
-185lbs x 1
-205lbs 3x3

The 3x3 itself felt good. I tried one set after that and got shutdown hard. My energy level seemed to maintain for about 15mins per muscle group then it was hard downhill after that.

BB P.Rows
-bar x 6
-30kg x 5
-40kg x 3
-50kg 4x8

Well it was time to reset these so its back down to higher volume.

Hanging Leg Raises
bw 3x10

I think I'm going to try to go to 3x11 next then 3x12 etc.

Pallof Press
skipped

cable machines were all busy so we just left this one for today. Had some painting to get done tonight anyways.


Thougths

Well now I'm not sure if I should just give up on squatting 230 5x5 and switch down to 3x3. It seems like I should have that weight without too much trouble but it evades me every time. I guess in the end it shouldn't matter too much.

Well due to a series of events including me getting sick for a few days with some type of food poisoning/flu-like thing, I haven't been able to work out. I am feeling better now and will probably be back at it tomorrow.

If you bring it down to a 3x3 (from a 3x5) then you're cheating progression in a way. You should almost start off at 240 or 250lbs for the 3x3.

My 2 cents would be to just keep plugging away at that 230. Do as many sets as you can and then maybe you have to do 225 for the last set, not really a big deal. Then for the next week, go for 235x5, 230x5, 225x5. You've still progressed on your squats and the overall work done is the same as 230x3x5 even though the last set is 225. Maybe do something like that for a couple weeks (235x5, 235x5, 225x5 the following week) and then go back to 230x3x5 for straight sets. It's much easier to slap on 5lbs to one set (especially the 1st one) rather than 3. I'd wager that if you do this sort of scheme you'll be able to slay 230 for straight sets without a problem.

Kane: Thanks for the tips. I was actually supposed to be going from 5x5 to 3x3 but the 5x5 just turned into a 3x5 by ways of being not able to finish. I like it that way because you pick up your progressions again and it gets you going mentally again. You also get a slight break from easing off on the volume while not being too high on the intensity yet. So, you get back in the game mentally and your body heals up a bit as you progress in weight to where you should be at with your 3x3. Or at least that was my though process.

Personally, it really bugs me to just keep banging away at the same weight time after time. I know its all in my head but having that progression each time is what keeps me coming back.

Hrdgain: Thanks for the kind words.
