  1. (переход) Transition Week 5 Day 23 Squats: Straps Up 46 Centurion 40kgs 4рХ1п 60kgs 4рХ1п 80kgs 4рХ1п 100kgs 4рХ1п 120kgs 4рХ1п 140kgs 4рХ1п 160kgs 4рХ1п 170kgs 4рХ1п Total: 32 Lifts Press: Bench Press SlingShot XL 40kgs 4рХ1п 60kgs 4рХ1п 70kgs 4рХ1п 80kgs 4рХ1п 90kgs 4рХ1п 90kgs 4рХ1п Total: 24 Lifts Pull: Sumo Briefs 70kgs 3рХ1п 90kgs 2рХ1п 110kgs 1рХ1п 130kgs 1рХ1п 140kgs 6рХ1п Total: 15 Lifts All Lifts 63 Notes: Squat: Low Bar/Flats 5th week Equipped but straps up, a bit all over the place today. Could not settle into a good rhythm for each set toppled forward on the 3rd rep 1st top set but not as bad as last week. Will start to video so I can pick up the error log. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot XL same as Squats did 2 top sets. Line and speed were more consistent but fading on the 4th rep. I think I get more out of the 2XL than the XL lol Pull: Sumo Deadlift straps up, belt position right and tension on the bar at the start makes for a better session. Today they were all pretty consistent except for the middle rep. Average this week was 0.4516 last week was 0.4333 just up a bit even on 5kgs more so will go up to 150 and see where we are. Notes: Good second day with the straps up still looking to tidy the line up. Quote for the Week: "The Enemy of My Enemy is Still My Enemy" -Drago Miseveni OB1

Did 2 sets at 120 just to dial things in a bit better. Line was good for the first time with straps up. Speed at 195 was pretty good maybe could have gone to 200 next week. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot down to the XL not as good as I thought as compared to the 2XL. Went to a 100 for 2 top sets. Pull: Sumo Deadlift straps up, feels better with straps up maybe 2 weeks then the line will be good. Went to 170 speed was good high 2s. Notes: Start of Block 2 straps up for this next block will be working on getting the line right and moving the weight 10-15%. Good hit out for the first day. Have a better understanding next week.

Pull: Conventional Deadlift softsuit, working on a lower hip position today was better and speeds were good so went to 160kgs still good speed. Notes: End of the fourth week equipped and overall a good week even training with an injury progress is steady. Last week with straps down so straps up next week.

Could not settle into a good rhythm for each set toppled forward on the 3rd rep 1st top set recovered but put the 4th rep out. Did not reset novice error. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot same as Squats did 2 top sets. Line and speed were more consistent did not fade like last week better today. Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, belt position right and tension on the bar at the start makes for a better session. Today they were all pretty consistent except for the middle rep. Average this week was 0.4333 last week was 0.4233 just up a little. Notes: Over all a session done but except for Deads reps were not as fluid as they should have been.

Just a bit over the place never really settled in to the squats till the top set. Line was good but just belt and rushed a couple of reps, still a bit conscious out the elbow. But after all that hit 190 for a good top set so pleased with that outcome. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot a bit like the Squats took a while to settle in. 1st top set to far back so hit the racks, was going to stop but decided to do it again, a better effort on the 2nd top set. Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, by this time I thought that the deads would come right, come to 130 and the speed was a good point behind last week. I was deciding whether to go up made the choice and the speed was the same as last week so tidied up and did another set just to finish on a high. Notes: Start of the 4th week and like above not the most productive day that I was expecting but days like this happen. Overall it ended up pretty good with some minor gains to round out the workout. Tennis Elbow was a limiting factor today but I now know that I can train pretty good around it. Quote for the Month: "We are not the Masks we wear.

Speed was more consistent so did 2 top sets. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot again went to 100kgs as the speed was ok at 90 but was starting to fade drop set was the same tough. Pull: Conventional Deadlift softsuit, working on a lower hip position taking a little while so just kept it at 150kgs. Even with the dodgy elbow this was a good improvement on last week. Notes: End of the third week equipped and overall a good week even training with an injury today progress is steady. Good to be back lifting proper. Injury put a damper on the training but came through ok Quote for the Week: "We are not the Masks we wear. But if we don them, do we not become them?" -Pitiless as the Sun OB1

Worked hard to keep all reps pretty close to each other. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot same as Squats did 2 top sets. Line and speed were more consistent faded last week in both sets, but better today. Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, belt position right and tension on the bar at the start makes for a better session. Today there were all pretty consistent no leaps on certain reps so happy with this. Average this week was 0.4233 last week was 0.4366 just a little down. Notes: Over all a really good session over all the lifts will stay another week with straps down, as I try to get more consistent numbers on the speed.

Finding the line a bit more often and still able to adjust to not so good reps. 1st top set was not as good as I hoped so a better effort at the same weigh instead of a drop set. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot same as Squats did 2 top sets and a better effort on the 2nd top set. Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, for reason did not attach for 110kgs but no issues, same as last week 2 top sets speed indicates a 10kg rise may look at that next week. Notes: Start of the 3rd week and staring to get a better feel for the lines and where my strength is at the moment. Maybe 1 more week straps down for Squats and Deads and the 2XL SlingShot. Speed indicates that is still a bit of movement on the weights for all 3 disciplines Quote for the Week: "We are not the Masks we wear.

Speed was quicker so went up to 175 contemplated 180 but 175 was a better move. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot again went to 100kgs as the speed was far better than last week did a drop to 75 which was faster than last weeks 95 top set Pull: Conventional Deadlift softsuit, working on a lower hip position taking a little while so just kept it at 150kgs till I get it sorted and the speed picks up.

Press: Comp Bench SlingShot same as Squats did 2 top sets. Line and speed were more consistent just faded in the last top set. Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, got the belt position right and makes for a better session. I thought things felt not as crisp or fast as last week but all the speeds were pretty consistent. Average this week was 0.4366 last week was 0.4366 that is consistent. Notes: Over all a better session in the equipment only the 5th time so still a way to go.

Finding the line a bit better not where I would like it but a big improvement on the first day last week. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot better performance this week speed dropped off some what but still up on last week. Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, last week was pretty tough this week was better loosened the belt and extra notch seems to have made a difference. Speeed was up so just did an extra top set for today. Notes: Start of the 2nd week and a big improvement on last weeks inaugural session. Getting better lines than last week for all lifts still early days but I seem to be on track.

Lot better than Mondays session still a little while to go before I settle into Equipped. Press: Comp Bench SlingShot again went to 90kgs and did 2 sets speed was bang on. Pull: Conventional Deadlift softsuit, first 2 sets hips were high 3rd set dropped them down slightly felt different, even with the lower hip position the ROM was intriguing. 130kgs high hip 551, 538, 543, 150kgs lower hip 521, 538, 538. going to keep at the lower hip for a few weeks probably need to video to compare. Notes: End of the first week equipped and overall a good week a few things to work on and to get use too but progress. Good to be back in my metals. Quote for the Week: "We are not the Masks we wear.

Went back to my Flats/Metals and this made a difference to Mondays session. Still work to be done on the line and movement patterns but happy with today's squats, did 2 top sets with no drops. Press: Comp Bench no shirt just the SlingShot same as Squats did 2 top sets. Line and speed were more consistent and later I may need to change the S/S as I get 40kgs to touch Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, this was a big improvement on Monday's session found a good hole and position for the belt. Made the session more enjoyable still need move some kilos from the front so the belt sits better. Notes: Over all a much better session in the equipment like I said a long way to go but a big improvement on Monday's workout. Quote for the Week: "We are not the Masks we wear.

Press: Comp Bench no shirt just the SlingShot same as Squats did one drop set. Pull: Sumo Deadlift Briefs, here is where it got tricky it will take a while to get the line right in the briefs so just went to 150kgs and no drops. Notes: Start of the 1st week and it is like learning to train all over again, bit unstable in the heels so will go back to my Metals bench the same and the Pull was the worst. This cycle is called Transition from RAW to Equipped. Quote for the Week: "We are not the Masks we wear. But if we don them, do we not become them?" -Pitiless as the Sun OB1
  15. You had a good day MT nice lifting
