  1. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    Pretty decent workout today, went above planned single for OHP (50kg but did 57.5). Pressing / triceps in general feel stronger so im sure it will pay off on the bench which has always been a little shit. Week 2 Day 1 Overhead Press 40 x 5 45 x 1 50 x 1 57.5 x 1 (max single, up 7.5kg) 45 x 5 47.5 x 5 47.5 x 5 Front Squats 60 x 3 70 x 3 70 x 3 70 x 3 72.5 x 3 Close Grip Bench 60kg for 3 x 8 (up 10kg from what I normally close bench on this rep range) Behind neck press, slow and controlled just the bar 3 x 8 Seated Lateral Raises 12kg 4 x 10 Skullcrushers 20kg 3 x 12
  2. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    Big leg workout today. One thing I need to improve is bracing myself throught the lift, because I keep tipping forward, which is ok when your lifting 80kg's but will be problematic when I start adding weight so deal with it now. Made sure at the start of each rep to pause, big breath, brace core tight, and maintain till I got back up. Took over a minute to do each set as a result of this but worth as I only leaned on like the second set towards the end. Abs sore as f*ck. Squats 60 x 5 60 x 5 80 x 8 (RPE 10) 80 x 8 (RPE 10 i.e very difficult) Pullups 3 x 6 Leg extension 3 x 15 Leg Curls 3 x 10 Goblet Squat This is a really underrated excercise tbh for improving form, core strength, etc. Had a "heavy" dumbell 2-3 inches away from chest and did slow and controlled. 30kg for 3 x 8 Leg Press Decided to do these towards the end of leg training as it saves effort loading plates since I wouldnt need as many. 4 x 10 (210kg + rack) Deadbug lots till couldnt do more

    Are you getting someone to coach you on leadup to vic or sorting programming yourself? you aiming to place high (top 3 etc) in weight class or just doing it for fun?
  4. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    Had a really good deadlift workout today. I planned to max out at 140, and as I worked up to that weight, I was taking a break for a few minutes to psych myself up to do just one rep of it. As I was doing this, some random dude comes in and randomly does 6 effortless reps right in front of me and walks off. Now as many of you know, I am quite egotistical and borderline narcissist. This came handy, as I was so fucking humiliated that someone took my bar and did 6 reps of my 1rm while I was psyching myself up to do just 1 rep. Because of this, I got so angry and fucked off, that I thought to myself "I have to do more reps and be better than him no matter what, f*ck that c*nt". So I managed to do 5 reps in a state of extreme anger and humiliation (he did 6 but good enough). Ofcourse after this point I used up all my energy to attempt an actuall 1rm, so the calculated estimate is 158kgs. Deadlifts 60 x 5 100 x 5 120 x 3 140 x 5 PR 130 for 4 singles Straight Leg sumo deadlift 60 x 8 80 for 3 x 8 (dead stop, very controlled descent) Barbell Rows 60 for 3 x 8 Hamstring Curls 4 x 8-10 Lat Pulldowns 2 x 8 Hammer curls 3 x 8
  5. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    Starting new cycle after 1 week deload. Week 1 Overhead Press 40 x 8 45 x 8 Front Squat 45 x 5 50 x 5 60 x 3 65 x 3 70 x 3 Close Grip Bench 50 x 10 55 x 10 55 x 8 Behind neck Press superset w/ Seated Lateral raises Bar for 3 x 8 / 12kg 3 x 8 Tricep Pushdown 20kg 4 x 8 After looking at last weeks maxes, decided on the following goals for lifts: Bench = 87.5 Squats = 120 (provided I actually squat this cycle) Front Squats = 90-100 (90 ez 100 is stretching it) Deadlifts = gonna attempt a max tommorow, so by next month hoping for 155-160 depending on what I get. Program has me maxing on these right after the deload on next cycle, rather than at the end of the old one. Not following a super technical program so max goals are just based on mostly feel and more of what im aiming for than what I am going to end up doing. Purposely made them very difficult to attain which will motivate me to train harder. If I get within 5kgs of them thats good.

  9. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    Very true maccaz. Quite a strange phenomenon today, keep in mind I have barely trained legs all year let alone squatted. In the few times I did go I could barely unrack 80kgs or even rep 60kgs (could do like 5 max). So today my plan was to do 60kg's for 3 x 5 and max out at around 70-80 for squats yet... Squats 60 x 5 70 x 5 80 x 5 80 x 5 80 x 5 90 x 1 f*ck all weight objectively, but unexpected surprise for me considering lack of leg training. Pullups 4 x 5 Horizontal Leg Press (non plate loaded) 160kg 3 x 10 Leg Curls 125lbs 3 x 8 Leg extention 3 x 15-20
  10. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    Might start training legs one of these days... Bench Press 60 for 8 sets of 3 Pullups 20 total (about 6 sets to do it) Dumbell flat bench 26 x 8 28 x 6 28 x 6 Seated Rows 67kgs 3 x 8 Tricep Pushdowns 20kg 4 x 10 EZ bar curls 20kg 2 x 20 Saw the silliest thing in the gym today, a kid maybe 15-16 lying down on a bench, had a plate on his forehead with a towel underneath, bobbing his head back and forth. Must be one of those new years type people who come and go.
  11. Actually going gym etc pt.2

    From now everything will be a PR because as Maccaz and Wendler both said, what counts is what you can do now, not 3 years ago. Since 2018 will be the year that I am finally consistent in my training and achieve other things as well (for real this time), may as well start counting progress from what it is now, not in 2014 etc. Deadlifts 100kg for 5 x singles 130kg for 5 x singles (PR) Stiff leg deadlift 100kg 3 x 8 Leg curls 3 x 8 Doing boxing again tonight. Found a no-frill boxing club which is pretty much a giant tin shed with bags hanging down, lots of hardcore people who I can learn from as well, and very cheap, only 100$ for the 2 months I am here.
