Might put that to the test
Bench + bands
New plan.... Have to give the kit I borrowed back on Monday so basically gonna train hard this week then have a week off before the gyms re open on the 12th
How much time does Hindle need to organise a few weight plates?
I've had a chat with him I can keep the weights longer
Session done in 25 mins. Worked up to daily maxes but very little volume
Empty bar to max in 7 minutes
Empty bar to max in 5 mins
One weird trick to get stronger in 15minutes from your own home!
190 X5 (2,3,4,5 rep PB) around 8.5-9 RPE so that puts my e1rm around the 227kg (500lb) mark. That 500lb high bar squat is coming!
3 rounds of
OHP 60kg X10
Row 60kg x15
Mini deload week done, although pushed the squat a little today
220 x1 (pb, although cut depth a little because I was a bit nervous about getting pinned under the bar)
250 x1. Moved fast but form was shit, hips shot up way to fast, if this was a decent weight I would have missed it with that technique
200 x3 was nice though
Feet up bench +bands
So comp has been postponed.... AGAIN!! Not sure when it will be re arranged for. Good news only a week until the gyms re open. Will carry on the theme of daily maxes but all the volume will be made up with assistance exercises. Not really going to have a plan or program, but will base the accessories on what I think needs work from how the daily maxes move. Deadlifts I will keep to 1 DE day and 1 ME day as that seems to be working ok right now, although the DE I might start with a moderate single first
Anyway, todays session
200 x5 (Wanted 6 to hit a 6 rep PR and a 6th rep was probably there but didn’t risk it without safeties or spotters. Still ties my best 5 rep max)
Bench + Bands
I can never be bothered to do accessories in the garden, so hoping when I get back in the gym and start doing accessories properly it will get the lifts moving again
230 PR before 349 opens ... ?
We'll see, I think it's there... Just wether or not I have the balls to load it
Flight tickets and approvals are outside my range right now, so can't manage a spot mate. Soz.
So I went for the the Jesus spot. With everything going on in my life, I needed something to feel like it was moving forward, so I decided I was going for 230 no matter what today. Based on how the warm ups felt I had no right to attempt it, but sometimes you just have to put yourself in in a position where you have to make it.
So over the last few months I've taken my high bar squat from 190 - 220 and my low bar squat from 210 - 230. I'm defianltey sold now on this is they way I should train.
Anyway, this is the 230 squat, All be it slightly high because I was a bit scared lol
Fucking oath. Nice job.
It didn't look especially high, probably line-ball in meet conditions with a singlet rather than loose shorts?
Just imagine how it moves when you're feeling on point.
Training was trash after yesterday
HBBS worked up to a single at 200kg and was pretty Grindy
Comp bench, single at 160 that was also in slow motion
Had a return of the back cramps/spasms and elbows were sore too.
Comp postponed until 6th June, going to stick with Bulgarian style but use more variations to stop the wear and tear
My box squat sucks
So gonna do quite a bit of this going forward
225 x1 top single
Followed up with just some Mish mash of belt squats, leg curl and some prowler work
Do you try and replicate a WSBB style? I'm assuming 'no', based on the IG clip. Not suggesting you should/need to either, necessarily.
That's not a horrible # compared to your max squat though. The box is usually 10% less-ish, is my understanding.
