re: Daily Strength Check-In
I might keep box step ups, and do calf raises, and do my lunges on deadlift day.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Strongman.

4x250 per hand farmers walks for 50 feet per set.

2x475 yoke walk, maybe 30 feet per set.

Gorilla grip, side plank, weighted ab wheel and calves in two giant sets.

My father's in town for my birthday, so I cut it short. New neighbors are moving in. In a nice ego stroke, one of their moving guys videotaped me doing farmers walks on his camera and told me I was "un hombre mas fuerte" after.

So I get respect from random moving guys.

Greyskull gladiator-

Last night had sandbag half mile. Not sure what the distance was as I just ran to end of my road and back, I thinks it's a little more than 1/2 mile. With 59lbs bag, I completed it in 8:28.

I should probably google before I ask, but any recs on a cheaper rucksack? Looking to possibly start doing ruckwalks JP talks about in Greyskull 3ed.

I have this and it's worked well.

Condor Sentry Plate Carrier

Recovery.

2 giant sets of 225x5 bench, rows, side laterals and 50 lb slamball chest passes. Last set of bench was easy, so I did 6.

2 giant sets of feet elevated, weighted pushups, bb rows, side laterals and more slamball chest passes.

2 giant sets of terminal knee extensions, glute ham raises and reverse hyper.

2 giant sets of curls, skullcrushers, plate halos and sledgehammer swings.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Weighted vest or plate Carrier. Weighted vest would be my suggestion due to flexibility of exercises you can do with it.

Tonight I had gladiator- kid had a 3 hour baseball practice tonight so subbing some exercises and cutting it short

Barbell clean and press-135 x 3x5
Dead hang pullups- 4 sets
Trap bar press- 65lb bar x 100 reps

Ran out of time but Im probably trying to do too much volume too soon anyway.

Having said that, I've definitely noticed my chest and arms getting bigger with the extra 5 sets of AMRAP stuff I've done.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Hit my deads then did seated overhead press instead of standing. Definitely felt harder.

Still dont know what Im doing programming wise other than GSLP base lifts plus whatever I fancy that day. Seems haphazard but to be honest its working, chest and arms definitely filling out a little bit.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
I would recommend getting some firm programming to follow. Aimless training is not the best way to go.

I’m in week 7 of Brogains Powerbuilding program and have had a lot of success after stalling out on GSLP somewhat. The google doc is on liftvault.com. It’s a linear progression program that incorporates some concepts from a few of the various programs like Greyskull, 5/3/1, etc. but the main lifts are in the same vein as GSLP.

ETA: yesterday was a recovery day so I hit the bike, did some body weight stuff, and worked on mobility.

I'd at least recommend a solid plan and progression on core lifts. Then autoregulate things like arms and calves for aesthetics.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Based on the reps and sets you post it doesn’t seem like you are. It just seems like your doing a bunch of high volume exercises. I would focus on doing one main lift a day, and doing a 5x3 or a 5/3/1. Then added in 2-4 accessories that you can 3x10 with. Your rep counts are all over the place.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
For the main 4 lifts Ive started GSLP, then Ive been doing 5 sets of 10-15 reps as 'pump' work after.

Thanks for the advice!
