Occasionally dull pain only. Good to get blood flowing. I've been doing pull aparts, face pulls and external rotations pretty consistently. Will work up the weights in OHS until I can do pain free OHS > PR sn.
This is a good idea if you ask me, which you didn't .

Indeed. Best advice I've received has come when I wasn't looking for any. Of course, this isn't one of those situations.

I've noticed that a fair amount of the training logs have a slow and steady approach in them lately. The smash your own face in thing may be dying out. I may be the last one who's gotten away from a bombs away approach to the CNS.

I've discovered, oddly enough, that:

1) Frequent high intensity low volume oly lifting is good
2) Infrequent high intensity, moderate volume in the slow lifts is good.

Particularly when combined with LG. So I'm mixing it up.

I'm thinking about going to every 4 days for the big stuff, rotating between FS + press + Rows and BS + Chins. So Oly, Oly + A routine, Oly, rest, Oly, Oly + B, rest rest, oly, A, etc. Or something like that.

Glad to see that... seeing as how I was throwing some around. Watching your numbers over the last couple of months has really got me itching on the O lifts again. I like the template you just laid out. Of course I am still trying to intentionally Weaver myself at this moment so who knows where I am going.

I like how you introduced "to Weaver" to the lexicon.

I wouldn't be surprised to see you PR pretty quickly on a "Bulgarian minimalist" approach.

If you want to see this stuff for real, friend Glenn Pendlay on Facebook -- he posts videos of his team weightlifting sessions. Pretty unreal.

Weight yesterday: 185.4#. Went carb-crazy, 3 bowls of rice cereal with low fat milk, banana, bagel (with teh wheatz, oh noes), some processed corn "food", and chicken breast; dinner was a chicken sausage, gnocchi, greens, margarita, and a bowl of ice cream.

Weight today: 185.4#

Oops.

Meh, with all the water retention from the carbs you may get a huge woosh effect. Even if you don't, think of it as a sanity bump.

Good choices by the way on the carb crazy.

One thing I learned from Lyle is how to carb up (even if I prefer LG for sustainable leanification).

I figure it was the whoosh and just plain not eating enough. I was full as hell, though.

Did another light OHS workout:
65#x10x3

Felt really good, better than 45#. Headed in the right direction.
