    Had a spare 1/2 hour today, managed to get the gym owner to let me use the carpark for a quick deadlift session.

    Still waiting on gyms to open in the uk. Getting a joke now

    250 x3 @9
    220x3x2 @7

    Considering im cutting bodyweight, down about 5kg so far, and the fact the last time i did standard deadlifts was about 4 weeks ago i'll take it

    140 x1
    160 x1
    180 x1 @9.5

    Side note, multiply suits are painful!!! I dont think I will make a switch to equipped lifting, but has been fun messing about

    GymDependance Day in the uk is the 25th July, and looking forward to getting back to some more structured training

    No gyms until 25 July but your social venues are restored ... ?

    Interesting (??) approach to better health ...

    Only a few days to wait

    Hows the shoulder?

    Reluctantly healing. It’s being a stubborn shit but 2 forward one back is better than zero forward.

    daily pulling is proving better than low frequency and higher volume.

    Pressing with loose shoulders like a push-up is much better than fixed scapula for now, so I’m loading my daughter on my back for extra load

    Would anyone be interested if I started logging my training on here again?

    80 x1 @7
    7 minute density set of 65 kg

    W1D2- not ideal,training 10 hours after the last session with minimal sleep, but you know, life gets in the way of training

    Comp Deadlifts
    230 x3 @7
    190 x6x4 @sub6
    My deadlift responds really well to super submaximal volume, so as much as I would rather have less volume and more weight, im kind of doing what works

    Comp Bench
    130 x5 @6
    135 x5 @7
    140 x5 @8
    125 x5x2 @6

    Leg Press (myo reps)
    215 x15, +5,+5,+3

    Your deadlift stimulus response and mine are polar opposites :D
  17. Browner

    I know. Shows how people can vary so much in training response.

    Ive tried just heavy, low volume in the 1-3 rep range, 7-9 rpe range and I just end up spinning my wheels.

    W1 D3

    Seeing as bands worked really well for my deadlift and bench last block, figured id add them for squats this block

    Slightly different protocol on squats dor this session. Single @7, followed by 70% for 30 total reps, broken into as many sets as needed. Goal is to keep the bar speed high and rest periods low between each set

    HB squat w/bands (bands added 12.5kg per side)
    160 x1 @7
    130 for 30 total reps (5,5,5,5,3,3,4) rest periods 60 secs between sets

    Buffalo bar bench
    148 [email protected]
    123 x10 @9
    113 x10x3 @7-8

    Pendlay rows. Looking back theough my training logs, heavy rows always correspond with an increase in bench e1rm
    90 x10x4 @7-8

    Is that the data driven strength protocol? Re. Squats

    Yes pal. Thought I’d give it a whirl, it’s not too dissimilar to a top set followed by back offs, but I like that it’s a bit more autoregulated
