re: Daily Strength Check-In
Gonna hit this workout every 4 days around some Olympic and Crossfit workouts.

5x3 at 80% of 1RMs with 2-3 min between each set
Back Squat 275
Bench 235
Strict Press 170
Deadlift 330
Tricep Dips +90
Strict Pullups +30

Hard to gauge 1RMs on the tricep dips and pullups, so I just go slower in those movements.

@LSUAlum2001, are you not doing those Blue Star workouts? I saw your other threads...or are you just using their supplements?

That's the Blue Star full body workout. They don't recommend it more than 2x per week.

I'll be alternating Snatch and Clean & Jerk workouts and Crossfit workouts between every one so I'll be lifting a shitload.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Gotcha. I am on the fourth week of the routine doing the four days a week process. Every week slightly increasing and getting to where I can do inside the allotted time frames. Seeing results...never been one to do some of the routines. I just wish my gym had more stuff available...I am really having to be creative in substituting some of the lifts.

My goal is to try to add weight every other workout, so my Thursday routine will be up 5-10lbs if possible on those lifts. I don't really have current 1RMs, so I just went with something that was challenging. My neck issue is still giving me problems on bench, but I hope that my cervical decompression device helps alleviate the nerve problems.

I doubt I can make that weekly jump in shoulder press, but we shall see.

This workout is similar to MaxOT lifting, which is 5 sets at 4-6 reps using 85% of your 1RMs.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Worked out every day this week.

Tonight, slingshot bench, 225x8, 245x5 and 275x3.

3 giant sets of weighted pushups, face pulls, rows, JM Presses, side laterals and curls.

2 giant sets of 300 LB sandbag holds, farmers holds and band shrug holds. These were tough.

I should give you a shoutout for your comment in the thread about the douche who wouldn’t show his Walmart receipt. You’re 100% correct that the constitution doesn’t protect you from private actions, it only protects you from the government.

Also, related to working out, I’ve been lifting but waiting until I get some weights in to start posting lifts bc I’ve got limited weights. Spoiler: I’m weak as shite now.

It's a pet peeve of mine. The Constitition isn't a guarantee you can do whatever.

It's a document that outlines rights the government can't infringe on. You don't really have freedom of speech, you have a guarantee the government won't infringe on your speech unless you use it to yell "fire" in a movie theater.

Good luck with lifting. I'm sure it'll come back when you have a better ability to do normal stuff. This is just a weird time, but gains return fast.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Did that full body workout again.. 5x3 at ~80% 1RMs

Back Squat: 275, 275, 285, 285, 285
Bench: 235, 235, 240, 240, 245
Deadlift: 315, 325, 335, 335, 345
Strict Press: 155, 160, 165, 170. 175
Tricep Dips: +90lbs 6-8 reps/set
Weighted Pull-ups: +30

Took a while. My son rolled in when I started strict press and wanted to workout so my time between sets increased.

We did a lot of snatch accessory work yesterday so I’m surprised on the bench and strict press. Weights up everywhere.

Will toss in an extra rest day this week and wait until Friday to hit again. Tomorrow will be some form of cardio and some clean/jerk on Tuesday and more cardio on Wed. Off on Thursday.

Will start at 285 on Squat on Friday, 245 on bench, 165 on strict press, 335 across on DL and the same stuff on dips and pull-ups since I’m limited with what I have.

10 min EMOM: 100ft farmers carry + 3 burpees

Built up to 85% single deadlift then dropped back down for giant set work.

3 giant sets of 00:30 KBS, deadlift, hanging leg raises, 250m row. Tried to improve the row time just a little each round.

5 rounds (10 min total) of 00:30 KB RDL, 00:30 goblet squats, 00:30 burpee box jumps, 00:30 rest

I haven’t had a session yet where I wasn’t 100% gassed after. I also decided to take an active recovery day after every deadlift and squat day regardless of how I feel. Loving it so far though. Only through a few weeks but highly recommend so far.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
I was repping 215 for like 3-4 reps, and then Covid. Not looking forward to starting the grind again, but muscle memory is a hell of thing. We should bounce back quickly.

I also went from 180 BW to like 174-175. Feels bad.

I had mine around 315 when this pinched nerve thing fricked me up for a while last spring.

My guess is only 275 right now.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Have a blood test tomorrow, so I'm taking a 3 day weekend. Back at it tomorrow.

Jealous of the 275. I'm hoping I can use the slingshot to hit that level or break it.

I started putting a rolled up towel under my neck when flat benching to keep my neck from flattening out.

Helped me yesterday.

Hope it stays helping.

Sometimes weird stuff helps. When I tweaked my shoulder, I always heard narrow grip bench is better. Turned out the opposite was true and wide was much better for my shoulder.
