3rd


6/2-

Lying leg curls
Box jumps

Squat-
45x5
95x5
135x5
185x5
225x5
belt on
275x3
315x3
3x3@350

Notes: That was pretty much it for today. Warmups felt absolutely fantastic. 350 is the heaviest weight I've had on my back since rehab started. The hamstring feels better each session. There was, as usual, a bit of discomfort at the top, but not as much as before and it keeps getting better, and handling heavier loads is getting easier. If the next session feels as good, I may throw on the wraps for a heavy session before AT. I got really lethargic and was feeling really out of it after squats though, so deadlifting didn't really happen.

The real problem now is my right elbow. It is getting achy as hell, just like the left one did before. I think I will take tomorrow off in order to get some rest for a shot at 352 Tuesday or Wednesday. After that, I'm completely letting it rest until after AT.

For the rest of this week, I want to bench once (352 attempt), squat once or twice (possibly in wraps), and deadlift once.

6/2-

Safety bar squat-
55x8
105x8
145x8
195x8
235x5
5x5@285

Yoke press-
185x14

Overhead yoke walk-
185lb x 35ft x 3

Yoke walk-
185x50ft
275x50ft
365x50ft
455x25ft
545x25ft
600x25ft


Superset-
Tire flips- a bunch
Sledge work- a bunch

Notes: Had a bit of a fun day today. I was scheduled to bench, but I will be going after a PR on Wednesday so I just did some squats and strongman stuff. Squatting just keeps getting better- I've squatted five times in the last six days and each session leads to my hamstring feeling better. Hoping to get some heavy work in on Friday, possibly with wraps.

Plan for this week-

Tuesday- rest
Wednesday- bench 352
Thursday- deadlift 485 for singles
Friday- squat 375+, possibly use wraps
Saturday- drive five hours in a humvee to Kansas and not lift for three weeks

6/3-

Biking, 45 minute, dunno about distance


This was refreshing. I got to spend some time outside and see a few parts of Iowa City that I didn't know were there (or that I could bike to). I will be doing this more often. I've been letting my weight climb up higher than I should and I realized that it's likely because I'm not walking around campus going to classes any more. Biking 2-3 times a week should fix that.

Hit a 455lb deadlift today. I'm pretty proud of that, especially after failing 2x at it last week.

Training legs 2x/week and working 40+hrs on your feet is not fun.

Did a squatless leg workout tonight.
Leg ext up to 185 4x8
Prone ham curl letting knees rise, keeping hips down - sickening contraction.
Lunges with 20s and 25s
High volume leg press
Calves as usual

Angus, why do you keep your stance so narrow for a DL? Looked like your heels were literally touching.

Whenever I deadlift conventional, whether for snatch grips or to change it up a little, I am always pretty narrow too. Feel more controlled that way with conventional.

Ugh, hate/love the gym I go to in Scottsdale.

Everyone has ****ty form, stupid haircuts and yet everyone is jacked, yoked and more shredded than Wheaties. I'm busting my *** trying to keep my legs and people I see in the gym everyday whom only every (half) squat once have bigger quads/calves.

/dear diary

Love the facility itself, but the people there just fill me with a rage I rarely feel.

Switched to Bulgarian Split Squat and Leg Press with Extensions today...my back felt fine but my knee is hurting now (same one I'm SC injury with). Think it was the leg press.

There's a lot of guys at my gym that have bigger upper bodies than me but I train legs 2x/week and they're the ones wearing pants for their workouts, hiding their legs. I can get big arms any time if I actually bother to subject to the vanity of doing curls every other day.

Totally srs. I don't care to judge others when I'm at the gym because I'm there for me but if we're going to discuss going to the gym and seeing bigger guys with ****arounditis, those are my thoughts on the matter.

I'm stronger with that stance. That's really all there is to it. My feet are about 4-5" apart, typically.
