Monday PM

Still very stiff around the ribs from the strongman comp but decided to get stuck into training anyway.

Today was the first day of a 6 week cycle aimed at breaking the 600# DL barrier.

Additional goals for this cycle

BSQ - 220kg
BP - 145kg
PP - 120kg

Plan is to roughly follow the 6 week HFM template of Light, medium, max, max, medium, light weeks although i'm experimenting with doing some speed work as well as ME work because i think 4 heavy days a week might be too much for me.

Day 1 - ME day - light week

DL - 200kg 3x3
PP - 82.5kg 3x3
Chinups - 3x5
45 deg back ext - 3x6 40kg
KB swings 24kg 2 x 1:00 35, 33

Everything from my lower back to my ribs and pecs hurt today so this was a lot harder than it should have been.

Monday - 1st workout of week 2 - Medium volume and intensity week

ME DL and PP

DL 215kgx2 (no belt, no straps) 227.5kg x2, 215 x 3x2
PP 95kg 3x2, 100x2, 105x2
Pullups 7, 5, 7, 5
Back ext 40kg 8,7,7

215kg without belt was a PR for a beltless DL and done for a double. I'll attempt a 227kg / 500# beltless DL at some stage during this cycle.

227.5kg x 2 was a PR for a double

Got video of both but in each case some knob decided to stand in front of the camera so the footage is lousy

Wednesday

ME SQ + BP

Had to rearrange my training this week because i'm away on friday and have a comp on saturday.

Learned the hard way today that ME squats + dieting for a comp is a bad idea.

BSQ - 182.5x1, 190 fail, 180x1, fail on second rep, 160 2x2
BP 110 5x2

Shit house session
