Well done on the PBs. Your squats and deads are seriously big, good to see the BP making progress too.

[quote="chewybaws"][i]Worked the full weekend at work, went out saturday night again. So very little sleep and a lot of time on my feet. I felt really shitty today,


You wait till you get old dude, all that has to end!

Cheers man! I'll be heading out again this Saturday haha.

Tue 8th May 2012

Pendlay Rows
5x5x80kg

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGdVru-dTis[/youtube]

Went to the gym to see my workout partner through his workout, he got a squat PB at 117.5kg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKAIu7Vq2D0
Done some rows while I was in. Pretty solid but using my lower back too much. Pretty sure I'm starting a new cycle next week so will concentrate on keeping it motionless with lighter weight.

Just winging it at the moment! End of this week I'm just gonna do some light squats (let everything rest) and start up something new on Monday.

The Madcow advanced looks quite good http://stronglifts.com/madcow/5x5_Program/Periodized_5x5.htm

Fri 11th May 2012

Squats (no belt)
3x5x90kg (pause first and last rep)

Front Squats
1x5x70kg (pause first and last rep)
1x5x90kg (pause first and last rep)
1x5x100kg

OHP
1x5x40kg
1x5x50kg

BB curls
3x10x20kg

OHP (behind neck, wide grip)
1x5x30kg
2x5x40kg

Todays workout was a bit of a mess. For the last couple of weeks during bench when unracking the bar (whether myself or getting a handoff) my forearms/wrists have been very sore (monday I was going to do more benching at the end but unracked 70kg for a rep out set and it was too sore). Also on Monday my shoulders/arms been very uncomfortable with the bar on my back for squats.

Have a couple of theories of what it can be, i'm going with either fucking about with olympic lifts (I've injured myself in the past trying hang cleans) or close grip bench press (feels very uncomfortable). Just my whole arm/shoulder area feels like shit and strained. Should heal up as long as I take it easy.

Right so basically after a few days I've isolated the injuries a bit. My left shoulder is sore in the bottom bench position. It hurts even if I just move my arm into that position without any load. The wrist/forearm issue seems to be separate and on both sides. The shoulder stops me from flat benching/low bar squatting. The forearms kinda stop me from using any decent weight on any pressing movement. Will be trying my best to work around it.

I used to get sore shoulders from low bar squatting, but out was actually the pec tendon tearing :)

But high bar should make your core stronger too, so there are benefits.

Good luck with smolov!

Hammer grip DB bench
1x10x20kg DBs

Good workout. Can feel my shoulder noticably getting better. If I keep building up the flat bench gradually restoring my full range of painless motion in shoulder, I reckon be good as new within a fortnight. The chinups are a PB, but because I was using the bar at the club which is about a foot away from the wall I kept swinging into the damn thing (doesn't happen so much with pullups). My mate got a video will post later.

Squat/deadlift ain't gonna be moving for a bit while working on no belt/sumo etc. But aye pullups/chins have had a boost out of nowhere recently. Suddenly they're starting to feel really easy!

Lots of stretching then went to the park and kicked a ball about. OHP wasn't easy but got through it.

Got fucking massive news. I am now employed by Strength Shop UK http://www.strengthshop.co.uk
Don't think I've talked much about my work situation on my log. Since I left school I've been working weekends (the last 6 years it's been with B&Q - a DIY company) whilst at college/uni but the last 2 years basically been looking for work (done a gym instructor qualification last year). I've trained with buzz before from these forums. The job went up on facebook a couple of weeks ago, I applied and got it.
Mon-Fri, 8:30-3:30. A current benefit is we all workout together mon/wed/fri at work. To say this is convenient is an understatement.

Training today was great. Took the squat racks outside. My overhead strength isn't quite as pathetic as I thought but needs a lot of work. Back to low bar squatting as my shoulder's been feeling better. Didn't have any sun cream though, upper back/shoulders are burnt to fuck now.

Just looking at this video I know I need to bulk up.
