Swiss Bar OHP: 125# x 8; 185# 5, 5, 5, 4, 3  < wasn't feelin' 100% today.  Too much craziness this week with work I guess.

Grippers: worked up to CoC#3: R: 4 5 5 5 5; L: 4, 5, 4, 4, 4  < not sure what was going on with left

Unstable Bench: 135# & two 45's hanging from bands, 5 x 5

2" DB Holds 165#: 5 sets ranging from 7-10 secs.

 

Also working on my COC#3 20mm close videos.  Figured out a couple things 1.) I need to stop wearing my sunglasses, cuz I'm not seeing the video screen as well, and 2.) I found a different auto-focus mode after I shot these, it should point-focus better, instead of trying to optimize the whole image.  3.) I need to do a better job getting the set on video

Turday:  Travelling for work again, and using a gym far, far away, with not much to speak of.

 

Pull Ups: BW: 5  BW+53#; 5, 5, 4, 3  < people were shocked and started talking about how crazy it was, and "that's like those guys doing 1 arm PUs on the internet".  #1 - I don't have the power/weight ratio like my 1 arm PU friends here, and #2 these guys at work need to set their sights higher

 

Did a bunch of random stuff with machines & light dumbbells.

 

KBSwings: 53# KB; 36:36; 18 r/i; 8 intervals  < after deadlifting Sunday, Squats Monday, this is all my posterior could handle

Jason - you know my squats suck, but since you asked:

 

135# x 10; 225# x 5; 285# 3 x 5   :sorcerer:

 

There are feeling stronger, but my hip mobility is still a factor.

Today:

 

Bench: worked up to 305# 5 x 3  < felt surprisingly good, but with travel, etc earlier this week, hadn't been working the shoulders much anyways

Squat: 135# x 10; 225# x 5; 285# 3 x 5;  < hips were all seized up from sitting on planes this week.  Had to do a lot of hip flexor stretching & goblet squats just to get this

Have you ever tried some compression shorts like Rehbands to help with the hips and hammies? I find they really help me warm-up.

My hips are a wreck from sitting for work all the time, and planes are the worst.  I think the compression shorts would help along with knee wraps, but what I really need to do is work in a 2nd day of squats again, and also get my sled out and do more sled pulls forward & reverse.

I'm on my ass all day for work as well. About a month or so I bought a Veri-Desk too which allows me to stand when I work. Switching back and forth helps my back and such a lot.

You really crank up the volume, Martin! Is your last set normally near a max effort?

Hi Eric, thanks for the encouragement!

 

Normally on 2HP, I was getting a pretty consistent 5 sets of 4 reps with the 179#, but the skin has been coming apart on my thumbs.  I don't do a lot of 1RM work anymore, I usually just try to build volume on the 80% stuff and slowly increase volume till I can move the weight up a little.  I find my biggest challenge with training has to do with joint health.  If I can keep the joints healthy, then I can make slow, steady progress.  If I start doing much 1RM stuff, then my joints start barking and I regress in my training.

Today's workout was so pathetic it's not worth mentioning.  Moral of the story - I like really ripe peaches, but my GI tract does not.
