Same here. Massive ass, weak glutes.

Charly what do you do on days that you don't feel 100%? Usually I would just be a no show, but I have a plan written out until my meet and if I skip today I'll have to squat tomorrow then squat again monday and I feel like every workout counts. Got a little bit behind on sleep yesterday and felt like i was coming down with something and I feel off today.

I never feel 100%. Except maybe on meet day after a whole week off.

I go in there and stop being a bitch. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

if you're being coached by someone proficient (and i suspect you are) you need to trust the programming.

I've seen so many times dudes get real antsy when they begin their taper and start to feel really great because the volume is going down and fuck it all up by doing shitloads of extra work because they feel they're not putting in the work.

but i guess this is old hat to you from your days as a weightlifter so maybe this post is redundant.

No access to any heavy weights or gym in 3 weeks. Thinking about getting my conditioning and some bodyweight exercises up. How does this routine look for 3 or 4x a week?

 

- BW pistol squats: 5-12 x 3

 

- Banded GM: 2 x 15-20

supersetted with

- Walking lounges: 2 x 15-20 per leg

 

- BW dips: 3 x 20+

supersetted with

- Very wide push ups: 3 x 10-15

 

- Seated band shoulder press: 2 x 6-12

supersetted with

- face pulls / pull aparts: 2 x 20-30

 

- BW Chins ups: 3 x 5-12

supersetted with

- Banded curls: 3 x 15-30

 

- One arm band row: 2 x 10-20

 

- reverse sit ups

 

- Hanging leg raises

 

1 or 2 min rest between sets

 

Also gonna do some hill / stair sprint intervals 2 times a week.

 

Thoughts?

True that.

Lifted at the equinox in grand central station. Such a nice gym, they have kiehls shit in the bathroom, free razors, little bags to put your sweaty clothes in. Lifting equipment was quite nice too, they have bumpers and the floors entirely rubberized. Was weird squatting without oly shoes and knee sleeves, but I hit 330lb for a bunch of really easy singles, which I'm ok with since I haven't squatted in a month or so. They had a squat rack, which let me squat even wider then plate width, couldn't even feel my legs doing anything.

I usually tie a meet PR in the second attempt and go for meet PR's in the 3rd attempt but that's not always the case.

For example, my last training cycle went really well, so I set new meet PR's with my second attempt on squat and deadlift. And I set meet PR's on all three attempts for bench.



To answer your question in short, I aim to do both of those things. In an ideal meet, I would have my numbers setup to hit meet PR's, not change any of my attempts, and hit all 9 attempts.

Ah ok, pretty interesting.

I don't know how you guys can even track 1 lb changes. My weight can fluctuate 2-4lb each day even when taken at same time of day frown.gif I guess that's what moving averages are for...
