Starting volume training next week for about 10 weeks.

This is not going to be fun.

Looking at my own volume template from ex, I can only imagine what yours looks like. I don't think anything induces dat puke feel more than high rep deads

I decided to try it during my cut out of pure convenience. Having one meal a day without having to worry about meal prep, or eating for that matter, throughout the day sounds like an extremely attractive idea. I'm on day 3 and so far so good. Nice weight off my shoulders in comparison to when I was on a bulk and constantly eating. Basically cram my cals into a 2 hour window after my gym sess and call it a night.

i love leangains, my version is approximately a 7 hour window, and fast the other 17 hours

Well, that was an experience. Just had to get in a mental zone and power through a lot of that, but I was able to do the whole first day of Sheiko 29. Actually semi-enjoyed it. Going to do it for 2-4 weeks to get back in the swing of things with lifting again and then pick up another routine. Def thinking about tossing in something like that once a quarter to my routines from now on.

Aware me as someone who usually does dead sets like this 45x5->135x5->225x5->405x2->MAXx1->405x2->335x5 what you do for a high volume dead set. I find if I go too high (18-20) with reps with any kind of significant weight on the bar I get all sorts of slop in my form and have heard horror stories of people grenading their lumbar spines.

PS: usually still feel pukey with low volume.

@Crat:
It looks like you've got some forward sloping shoulders going on. I'd check my posture from the side if I were you and look over the ratio between upper back and chest work.

You're gonna look better and bigger and it'll probably help your lifting as well to fix it.

Also, just switched from low rep conv deads to high rep sumo's and I agree on that pukey feeling. My shins don't like it either.

High rep face pulls and band pull aparts after pressing movements feels nice though.

Any variation of burpees, thrusters, and cleans get me pretty pukey once it starts to get high vol.

That feel when you've gained 12 pounds in 2 weeks.

Thanks for the tip. Would you recommend me doing more pendlays? anything else?
Also, is this judging from the 2010 pic or the recent pics on page 1963?

I'm hairy but I trim it, looks gross IMO if I don't, like an unmowed lawn. Can't see the muscles either
post #29726 of 57266
Got some cotton/linen pants that have a nice, relaxed vibe to them (elasticized waist, slouchy fit), but my god, the rise on those babies. When I realized I had to sag almost halfway down my ass just to not have the pants hugging my nads, I knew it was not to be. Shame, but further affirmation that I'm done with anything low-rise.

I've been done with anything low- or normal- rise for the longest now.

All high-rise or drop crotch icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I knew they had a lower rise (though not to this extreme), but it seems silly on a pair of pants that has all the earmarkings of relaxed fit. The search for such a pant in navy continues, I guess.

In happier news, I got a pair of Cheap Monday cotton pants with a long rise, relaxed thighs and slim lower leg heavily marked down from what I was about to pay a couple months ago, so there's that.

I think it looks better now, but it could still be improved. Pendlays are good, but those target the mid back more (lats). I meant that you should strengthen the back area of your shoulders. Face pulls and band pull aparts are good for this.

Good posture is very dependent on habits and adequate mobility too. Be sure to stretch out and mobilize your pecs, the front of your shoulders and upper back with a lacrosse ball or foam roller to get full range of motion back. Then remember to push your shoulders down and back at all times, during all pressing lifts as well as during the day.

A tip for maintaining good posture is to think that you should hold your weight on your heels, push your hips forward and make yourself as tall as possible by keeping your spine straight and vertical. Usually sets everything right.
