Try working around the injury next time. If you can't do leg stuff do upper body stuff sitting down if you have to. :)

keep the faith!

Yeah man, should have gone at least for bench press and some dips, since I really feel my chest/tri lagging behind.

Thanks for posting!

16/12
A
Squat: 3x5 80kg
Bench: 3x5 52kg
Deadlift: 1x5 90kg
Dips: 3xf BW

19/12
B
Squat: 3x5 80kg
OHP: 3x5 39kg
Power Clean: 5x3 60kg
Pull Ups: 3xf BW


After fast progress on my power clean I decided to not put more weight to get my form better, also started practicing full cleans for warm-up sets with the empty bar and small weights.

Squat progressing really great, feeling a lot better about Bench and OHP than when I started.

Also gonna go on a holiday from next monday untill the 13th, gonna try to keep a good protein intake and do good old calisthenics to not loose everything I gained.

Damn I was missing lifting! 3 weeks on holidays and I came back friday, time to account the losses and lift hard to get back on track!

Friday 13/01
B day
Squat: 3x5 70kg
OHP: 3x5 40kg
Power Clean: 5x3 52kg
Pull-Ups: 3x7 BW

Sunday: 15/01
Rugby Physical Test
2km in 2min
12,5s 80m dash

Monday 16/01
A day

*Coach did not tell us our results, this is what I could see on his sheet and the ones that we counted ourselves.

Glad I could mantain OHP and Bench, since they were the ones that gave me the most trouble, took it light on the Deadlifts since my whole posterior chain was killing me after the sprints.

Also thinking about adding something for my calves, I think they may be lagging. Any opinions on this?

Good lifting.

As for calves, I don't bother doing anything extra for them, but there's no harm in doing some calf raises if you want.

Thanks man, went to the gym Wednesday thinking about that. :D


25/01
A
Squat:
5 x 20kg
5 x 30kg
5 x 40kg
5 x 50kg
3 x 55kg
1 x 60kg
3 x 5 x 80kg

Bench Press:
5 x 20kg
5 x 30kg
3 x 35kg
1 x 40kg
3 x 5 x 55kg

Deadlift:
5 x 50kg
3 x 60kg
1 x 70kg
5 x 85kg

Dips:
3 x failure x BW

PS: Had a surprise when I stepped on the scale, since the last time I weighed last week was at a drugstore scale and I was at 66, but at the gym scale, wich is the one I use regularly it marked whopping 68,1kg, like a damn dream come true.

Also felt the Deadlift going up really easy, probably could of done 86kg or 87kg but I was afraid of killing my CNS and having to get someone to change my diapers, so I'll leave it for Monday.

And wow, learning how to use my hamstrings is one of the best things I have ever done, didn't even know what purpose they served before, so thank you squats. I am now a squat nazi.
