Continental Clean(not axle): 5x3-107.5lbs

 

Front Squat: 3x5-160lbs

 

Paused Close Grip Incline Bench: 3x5-97.5lbs

 

Pull ups- 2x6-BW

               1x5-BW(went for the sixth, failed)

 

Great workout. Continentals felt the best they have yet, I had much more speed. Bench felt great too. Front squats felt ok as well.

 

With that said from this point on i'm going to be increasing all squats by 2.5lbs each workout instead of 5. Over the last 3 months both my 3x5 squats have increased 90lbs, along with 20lbs of bodyweight. That is probably the bulk of my noob gains so i'm gonna slow down the squat progression a little, I can tell I won't be able to keep 5lbs up much longer. I'm not changing to texas method until my deadlift stalls though, so shooting for 315x5 before that, we'll see.

Squat: 3x5-182.5lbs

 

Overhead Press: 3x5-95lbs

 

Deadlift: 1x5-237.5lbs(forgot to add the other 2.5lb plate, nice)

 

Dips: 1x5-BW

         2x8-BW+15lbs

         1x6-BW+15lbs

My dips seemed to have really stalled, I don't know whats going on, the first 2 sets weren't that hard. Since I added in the close grip bench and keeping them at 3x5, i'm gonna to do dips a little different. I'm going to get 3x8,3x9,3x10,3x11, and 3x12 on a weight then add 2.5lbs and start over at 3x8. Its a much kinder progression and I feel the higher reps along with close grip bench will be a real good combo for my triceps. Planned on starting that today but missed reps, oh well i'll just start at 12.5lbs.

 

Besides that it was a real good workout,squats were good and OHP felt easy.

Grippers-

 

RH: 

5/8 BBSM(120lb)-1x1

COC #2.5(127lb)-5x1, 1x0(very close,finished off)

5/8 BBSM(120lb)-1x0(very close,finished off)

COC #2(109lb)-1x5

 

LH:

Choked GHP 5(112lb)-6x1, 1x0(close, finished off)

COC #1.5(89lb)-1x3

 

6lb Sledge Hammer

 

Front Lever Deadlift(18")-3x5

Rear Lever Deadlift(16")-3x5

 

 

Only logging work sets.

 

My hands are SMOKED. Going to do wrist work  after grippers from now on. Next grip workout i'm going to do side to side levering and wrist curls. For now I think i'm gonna stick with the sledge deadlifts until I can hold the hammer at the end because the dynamic movements felt kinda awkward. Also the inches next to the hammer exercises are how far away my hands were from the bottom of the hammer

Thanks for looking out man, but you don't think I've been forgetting about the two turkey legs at the bottom of my hands, do you?  ;)

Continental Clean(not axle): 5x3-112.5lbs

 

Front Squat: 3x5-165lbs

 

Paused Close Grip Incline Bench: 3x5-102.5lbs

 

Pull ups- 3x5-BW+5lbs

 

Great workout. Finally Back to where i was before I hurt my elbow, but i'm definitely (a little) stronger now than then. Feels good to be back in the swing of things. When I first did 165 on front squat I remember it being VERY hard, it was much better today. Everything else felt good too.

So the other day I asked on another log for pull up advice and got; 1)heavy negatives, and 2) twice a week, one weighted session and one unweighted, from two different people. I'm going to take both advices, so every other week i do pull-ups twice, weighted and BW, and every other week I do heavy negs for one session. Hope this works

Hope your pull up power sky rockets!
At my best, I was doing sets of 5 with half BW added.
Still have yet to reach 100 lbs weighted for a single though.
