Oh hell no. I try to break it down into sets of 4, rest about 1 min at the start and then keep extending the rest until 3mins between sets.
4x15, 4x12, 4x10, 4x8 ....
I have done the 100kg x 100 reps in 1 "set", as in never racking the bar, took like 14 mins though haha

Sounds like TBT would be good for you!

 

Side note: Come hang out with the boston folks. We had a meetup a little bit ago!

 

Who else is in Boston? How's your back doing?

 

I'm strongly considering buying a one-way ticket into Mexico in early spring/late winter, meeting up with this girl I met in Hawaii for a couple weeks, and then slowly traveling Central and South America. Biggest open question is how do I maintain an exercise regimen while doing that... I guess get creative?

^^^Body weight exercises. I've had to resort to them on occasion while traveling.

- squat 225lbs for 225 reps (I have been trying to get this for ever and have never made it beyond 162, I usuallt attempt it about once every 4-6 months)
- Bulgarian split squats with 120's x 10
- legit iron cross for at least 10 seconds

I'm pretty sure you will literally die around 210 reps.

There's gyms in South/Central America.

I worked out at this ghetto gym in Cuzco, and befriended some huge Peruvian bodybuilder. Apparently whey protein/supplements are harder to find, so a lot of lifters drink infant formula. Well, This guy went straight to the source and had some of his wife's breast milk with him! He offered me some, wasn't bad. This might've been lost in translation, but he basically hinted that he keeps his wife perpetually pregnant so he can have access to that sweet sweet gazomba juice, like a dairy cow. Was about 30 years old and had 5 kids, so it may be true.

When I travel and know I will not have access/time for a gym, I just bring a set of bands. You can do a lot of stuff with those.

 

Also, you can get along with these bodyweight movements pretty fine and you can do them almost everywhere:

- Pushups

- Dips (between chairs)

- Pullups

- Pistol squats

 

and with the bands you can add:

- curls

- tricep extensions

- flyes

- good mornings

- etc...

Did my third meet of the year today, RAW United - Winter Classic.  Weighed in at 227, so I competed in the 242 weight class.  Totaled 1300, RAW belt only.

 

Squats

 - Opener: 385 - Good lift

 - 2nd: 430 - Good lift (5 lb PR)

 - 3rd: 455 - Good lift (30 lb PR)

Bench

- Opener: 270 - Good lift

- 2nd: 290 - Miss

- 3rd: 290 - Miss

Deadlift 

- Opener: 530 - Good lift

- 2nd: 560 - Good lift

- 3rd: 575 - Good lift (10 lb PR)

 

Overall I hit the total I was going for.  Previous total was 1275 at a meet back in August, so a 25 lb increase was pretty good.  Really wanted to do better on bench though, but I'm tall (6'3") so that's always my weak point.  I hit 315 in the gym touch and go.  Got both 290 attempts about halfway but couldn't lock out.  That will be a focus in 2015 for me.  Switched to low bar squats about a month ago and have really liked them.  I've been running a modified 5/3/1 BBB and have continued to make progress on that.  I've looked into some other programs like Shieko or Canditos, but still not sure about the volume on those.  Videos to come if I can figure it out.

Whatever I can find that is solid and in the right height, and that I won't get too weird looks from using. Last time I lived close to a playground which no one used.

Last time I was on vacation I survived on pull ups and pause dips.
