Do I count as american? Lived in england 15 years. I just worse a white vest I cut some holes in and put some shit paint on my face. Smashed a girl doing her A levels, felt so nostalgic. She asked to see my abs so I showed her a pic on my phone from when i was like 7%. Dat feel when no abs right now.

The knee inflammation has finally settled so I can get back to squatting and deadlifting again.

Did my first session with both yesterday and I have DOMS in all off my lower body despite only working with 135 pounds. Gonna take some time to get back the strength and muscle massand and the movements feel awkward after the long hold-up. At least it felt good to squat pain free for the first time since mid August.

 

Bench is going well. Did a single 15 pounds over my last previous best from last meet and it was easy. Could prob get a double or triple with it. So hoping for something around 235-240 at the meet next saturday.

Im feeling paused bench. Hit a 3x4 today only ~10lbs down from my best TnG 5x4 sets. Also really liking close grip dumbbell bench. CGBBBP doesnt agree with my wrists.

Saw Tee Cummins at the gym for the first time. Overheard he "wanted to keep squats light", probably because he is prepping for his 20th meet of the year.  He hits an easy 700 pound single.  Dude is a monster.

It will come back. I lost 10lbs over 2 weeks in Europe. Didn't do one pushup/chinup. I was back to normal in about a month.

Biceps just hit the 17" mark. We made it brahs. Looks much smaller than I thought it would, prob cause Im still so fat

I'm consistently at 15 now. Want to get to 16.


Progress is coming up. I did friday's workout entirely doing slowed movements and pausing at the momentum change spot. I really like it so far. Pump was good too.


Looking forward to making some reasonable progress over the next two months. Starting to ease up on my diet as well. Want to maintain a bit so I'm cutting the shit out and possibly going to add a tiny bit of cardio to the end of my workouts.

any reason not to do (weighted) pullups every workout? 4-5 times a week. The lats have been fine with the recovery so far and I'm still getting gains in DLs. A quick google has a few warnings about the CNS on various forums but I guess I'll just keep going with it until it becomes too much.

The CNS is from my experience a non-issue in high frequency training if you just adjust the volume and intensity down for each training session, in relation to if you would train the movement/muscle less frequently. I've trained my whole body 5 consecutive days every week this summer without any CNS problems. the higher your intensity, the higher CNS fatigue, so maybe it would be better to trade some intensity for more volume.

 

The problems that I got, and that I know some other guys have got from high frequency, is overuse injuries and extreme stiffness. For instance, I got a knee inflammation for training legs all 5 days and I know another guy who had problems with his IT-bands squatting 6 times per week.

 

 

 

Some of the powerlifting District Championships has been held in the Sweden last week and there were some great stand-out results.

For instance, this guy, who as a sub-junior (under 19 years old) won in the sub-junior, junior and senior categories for his weight class and set a non-official world record total with 115 pounds in the sub-juniors. He also has the national record in the squat for seniors, as a sub-junior. I think he's gonna be a big name in a couple of years.

Yeah with pull-ups I'd be very careful about RSI's in the elbow/bicep area and wrists. At the very least change your grip each time (shoulder width overhand, close underhand, mid wodth neutral etc), Best case scenario you use gymnastic rings (if not every time, then at least alternating days) which will also limit the weight you can add since they're harder. With rings you're not locked in as much.
Fwiw I do pull-ups 3x week, once weighted, once body weight, once on rings with a slow tempo and pause.

Pull ups hurt my right shoulder like woah.

Rings are better and i also use parallel bars which are fun too.

I do back work every training session (5-6/week) with a mix of pull ups, rows, pull down and dumbell/barbell work. Best decision I've ever made icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Just change your grip and don't go too heavy every time. Maybe have 1 heavy session, 1 high reps/2-3 sets and 1 with multiple sets with medium intensity? Just a thought.

Yea I would love some rings... I do lat pull downs with "free" grips. The wrist wants to articulate a very particular way for pulling motions.... best to let it just do that
