6/13/15-Squats/Accessory

Ghr: bw x 5 x 7 sets

bx: bw x 10 x 5 sets

Ssb atg primer sets:

290# x 1

315# x 1

ssb atg worksets:

280# x 1 x 15 sets (30-45 sec rests)

ssb box squats:

235#+88#chain x 1 x 7 sets

ssb dead squat:

Felt like going for 1rm-

270# x 1

8# sledge work:

Kept it light x lots

I bought a usa stamped 50# york side blob off of a grip board member last week and so I did some blob work for the first time ever today and had a lot of fun. I ended up doing probably 50 drags and a couple two hand pickups then hold with just my pinky underneath it and even held free for a split second after dropping the pinky LH.. I'm sure this is still miles from an actual deadlift with it but it's a good start I think.

Good job with the blob Durrs, I think if you can hold it at the top for about 5 seconds then you should be able to lift

5/15/27

Arms are really sore from yesterday so I got a small workout in to get some fresh blood going this seems to really help recovery.

DB skulls: 10#'s x 50 x 6 sets

ss

EZ bar bicep curls: 30# x 50 x 6 sets

Try doing this next time you can't straighten your arms cause your so sore. The goal is not to breakdown muscle it's just get new blood and nutrients pushed in.

No not really but I can't be sad about 30#'s in 7 weeks. I started light but didn't really progress as much as I should have to get the full 50 lbs that the program claims. If you could progress through every failure test (5+reps or more) you would get a 50# push. Oh well, I'll take a few weeks and do 8-10 rep range stuff and figure out what to run next.

I'd say the 50# would be more for someone less trained than yourself but still nice gains! I'm going back to my buddies bench program that seems to have worked well at least once for me so far haha!

Yeah I'll feel that but I've done 100-200 rep bw pullup workouts so many times it's not too bad anymore. If I had the balls to throw on some weight and do that many it would be a different story :cry
