Yesterday was hams and calves am, chest pm. 225x10, 235 x 8, 245 x6, until I hit 30 reps total. Then various pressing and accessory movements.

Feeling pretty good after being back in the gym for 6 weeks now—strength levels are up and I’m on a workout sprint to get in shape for Labor Day. Might do a journal thread and update progress to keep me motivated

OHP 140 6x2
DL 240 3x10
Z Press 105 3x8
Landmine row 120 3x8
Shoulder press (DB) 50 3x8
Lat Pulldown 150 3x8

OHP has been stuck at 140 for 3 weeks now. Any tips to push past this plateau? I’ve been doing a ton of accessories to target weak points.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
What sticks you?

If it's stability, waiters walks are good.

Lockout, technique work and bands can help.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
It’s definitely the lockout. The weight goes up smooth about 80% of the way. I’ll try using some bands, but I’ve never really incorporated them. This should be interesting.

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Form wise, getting your head under and the weight back really helped me a lot.

If you have pins, set them 3-4 inches below your sticking point and do pin presses if you want something beyond bands. Good luck!

I was stupid tonight.

Deads, singles up to 530. Then 5 EMOM speed doubles at 405.

Bench, 7 EMOM singles with 245 and 3 more with 235.

Back was shot, so 5 giant sets of belt squat, db close grip bench or slamball chest passes and rows.

Sled pulling to finish with side planks and hollow rocks. Just went too far with volume and intensity.

I had a dream that I deadlifted 455 for a couple last night.

I think I might like this strength shite way too much

re: Daily Strength Check-In
Did some shoulder and leg volume yesterday.

Question, has anyone had issues with their hip flexor? Something has been weird with my hip the last few weeks and it’s starting to bug me more and more.

I feel like it started when I was doing some pause squat volume with low weight for reps.

ETA: it feels like it is strained or something, but I can still use it fine. Just hurts. Probably just need to stay off of it for a couple weeks.

Banded glute bridges. Helps activate dat azz and takes pressure off your hips. Also, make sure your hips are warm. Do things like the world’s greatest stretch and the iron cross.

5 giant sets. Spider bar good mornings, belt squat, weighted, feet elevated pushups or weighted dips, rows and broad jump chest passes with the 50 lb slamball.

4 rounds of forwards and backwards sled dragging. Felt like I did good work tonight.

Strongman.

4 sets of 250 per hand farmers walks. Took them further (end of the block) than ever before.

3 sets of yoke walk with 500-510 pounds. Tweaked my shoulder a little, but the pain has subsided, so hopefully just a cramp.

3 giant sets of gorilla grip, side planks and weighted ab wheel. Entire workout, I did 2 side slams with a slamball after each regular exercise.
