re: Daily Strength Check-In
Yeah, I do when I squat and OHP. I'm not sure why I can't break through it but I have been getting more comfortable and more confident - I think the time off I took from high school to the last few months just made me forget how it feels to be uncomfortable with weight but know it's still safe.

Getting there, just taking some time!

Today was PULL Day
BB Deadlift: 4x8 with 225lb
BB Bent Over Row: 3x12 with 95lb
EZ Reverse Curls: 40x12, 45x12, 50x8
Lat Pulldown: 100lbx12, 105x12, 110x12
BB Curl: 65x12, 70x12, 75x9
Cable Crunches: 3x15 with 70lb
Oblique Twists: 3x15 with 40lb

Bench and Deadlifts

Bench: 225x5 205x8 195x8
Deadlifts: 395x1 415x1 425x1 440x0 405x2

My 425x1 moved really fast, so I went for a PR at 440x1 but failed at the knees. I’ll get it next time.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
This is not to say I’ve never failed a deadlift rep, but for me it seems like if I’m able to actually get it off the ground then I’ll get it the rest of the way up. It’s just the getting it off the ground part that can sometimes be a challenge, ha.

Sounds like you’re close to a new PR though so nice work!

re: Daily Strength Check-In
i didnt post but once last week but i did fit in two sessions last week.

Last night I did fit a session in. Was really tired as i had to unload a couple huge pallets of mulch for the landscaping and walk and lay out the bags all around the house plus I had practice with my 8 year old and I help coach so lots of running around.

I did my whole warm up, oplus my wenning warm up.

I did add lots of the atg split squats just with body weight to the routine this time. I really like them and apparently I have been doing things right as I have almost as much mobility as their trainers. I have always put knees over toes even when squating as it was always much more comfortable for me. I always assumed it was because i spent 10+ years playing catcher growing up.

after I warmed up I was actually really pooped so I hit KB Press giant setted with bodyweight chins and bodyweight sissy squats. The kb press was light and just getting a pump and some blood flowing.

KB-13's x 25
18's x 20
26's x 15
26's x 15
36's x 10
36's x 10
36's x 10

the chins are neutral fat grip with true dead hang pause at bottom.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
8 days till my next meet, so I worked up to my openers today.

Squats up to 355x1
Bench up to 245x1
Deadlifts up to 420x1

Bar speed was pretty slow today, but I also lifted early and didn’t get much sleep last night.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
First week in 8-10 months I’ve had to miss multiple workouts. My elbow feels jacked up. Pain on the inner elbow and radiating into the forearm. Feels better after several days of rest but I feel like I gained 10 pounds in this 5-6 days off. Not sure if I’m going to give it another week of rest and then start over FSL 5x5 or what I should do.

ETA: good luck in the meet baw

re: Daily Strength Check-In
You should ease into it. Train what doesn’t hurt. Work just before the point of pain. Don’t push to pain, and sure do not push through pain. Unless you need medical attention, give it time to heal and work around it. You don’t need to revamp everything. You should see a doc to make sure you don’t need surgery, though.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Thanks for that, definitely need constant reminders to ease into it. First injury I can remember in my lifting/running/triathlon training life so it’s pretty frustrating. The stupid part is I think it was playing tug of war with one of my dogs that did it. Felt a sharp pain when he shook his head to the side while I was hanging on to his frisbee. I’m going to do some testing with it this week to see if there’s certain moves that don’t cause pain that I can keep doing and then I guess up the cardio and abs (my least favorite right now) until it fully heals up.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Another long arse weekend at the ballpark. Love watching my kids play but exhausted by the time it's over. In a lot of ways just trying to get done what I can get done, not doing a lot of leg training as I am focusing more of atg knees over toes stuff right now.



Wenning warm up- 2 rounds- pushups/fat grip chins/ prisoner squats

Db press-50s- 5/5/11
Bridged KB floor press- 36s + microband- 12/12
fat grip neutral chins- bw-8/6
20" foot elevated ring rows-bw- 8/8



Just trying to take that approach of a little each day is better than what 95% of people give.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
I’m running a deload this week. Going to take the time to un-frick myself. Extra mobility work all week. Going to use the prowler to make myself work hard.

I have a baby on the way, so I’ll be having to change my program soon, at least for a little while. Fun times ahead.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Yeah the meet is at Atlas, but sadly I decided to not do it. I tweaked my knee a few weeks ago, and I thought it would fine by this week but it's just not where I want it to be.

I'm super bummed out, and I hate not doing things I sign up for. I just gotta be careful with it, and not do anything risky.

The good news is I can start my next program earlier than expected!

I started SBS's Reps to failure 21 week program, and will run this for a while.

Last night

Squats: 265 4x5 and 265x11
Incline Bench Press 125 4x7 125x12
Sumo Deadlifts 205 4x7 and 205x16

Question: If I am struggling with the middle part of my bench, would I be better doing Spoto Press or High Pin Press?

Did some yoga shite. Rolled around with a tennis ball to help my stiff hips and some soft tissue work. I need to do this more often.
