Squat

One of my worst workouts while at school

Back Squat
135x10
185x8
235x5
225 3x5

Front squat

195 2x5

Everything felt tough. Had planned on moving up in weight this session for back squat but had to ditch the bar multiple times this workout. Very very frustrating...

Only thing possible explanation I can give is a couple of bad sleep nights and the fact that I've had 4 intramural soccer games this week and have found out that my cardio since track season is almost non existent.

Hopefully the rest of my lifts this week done suffer

Called it off here... Pretty Depressed at the numbers i've been hitting since spring break. Went into spring break with all my lifts going up. come back and now theyre all down 5 or more pounds.

Don't have any idea what the problem is.

probably because you are more upright and/or have better balance to get deeper. that is my guess

I've convinced my brother to start doing SS with me on monday.

Should i just plug my 5 rep maxes into the routine or cut back on the weight im doing. If so how much should i go back to?

decided to start SS today. Not gonna lie I've been skeptical about doing SS for awhile but finally decided to give it a try cause of all of the endorsements on this site.

Well I decided to run today to see where my stamina is. I havent run since the state meet just about a year ago. Ran 2 miles today in just over 17 minutes and was appalled. Im used to running just under 13 when doing 6 or 8 miles.
Id like to add running to my off days but really dont want it messing with my squats so we'll see how tomorrow goes with 265 for reps.

Just tired today. Only got about 5 hours of sleep cause its so freaking hot outside and theres not airconditioning in the dorm. I didnt think i was gonna get the 265 squat anyway today. ill probably head back down on weight on everything next week to get form down and see if i can overcome some of the stuff that im lagging on.

Bench speed is very slow so... i basically grind everything out so im wondering if thats part of the problem.
Diets good and im gaining weight so hopefully the pressing especially goes up

Not too concerned about not bumping weights up except for my bench really.

Great workouts man, seem to be making good progress in the squat. One thing though, you should bump the hang cleans to the front of the workout. They shouldn't exhaust you too much for squats, but it is dangerous for your form to do them after. Also it might be better to do squats and deads on different days. You don't have too, but the way you're doing them now will put an awful load on your posterior chain.

Did some speed work for bench at 165... not sure if i was doing speedwork fast enough as i've never done it before but it was quick.
The 190 i put up was much quicker than the 190 i was grinding up months back.

weight this morning was 166

A judo dojo opened up down the road but its kinda expensive... more than 130 a month for 2 classes a week and the other places much further away were about 100 a week for 3 classes a week.

Not sure if i'll do it cause of work and lifting and paying for college and whatnot but i'm gonna think it over.

Started running this weekend to get back into shape..

Saturday's run
1 mile- 6:59

Sunday's run

1 mile - 6:29

Legs are sore but this is pathetic. Worst part is that my legs are gonna hurt for squats and I'm not even running good times or for any distance yet.

Hey one rep, you're doing well and you're past the "beginner" stage. I've looked over your journal and I think you would benefit from changing your weightlifting routine. SS is great and you've built a good base with it, but everyone needs a change of pace sooner or later. There are dozens of good routines to choose from, I'd be glad to suggest a few if you want, but I think you will be surprised with your results if you change things up. Either way, the main ingredient is hard work, so keep it up!

Thanks a lot, yeah I was actually thinking about switching to either the Texas method or a 5/3/1 but havent really done the research into it. I'll look into one of these for perhaps next week or so.

round back good mornings
95 2x8
dont really know how to do these...


There are two basic styles of good mornings. One is done with a strong arch like you would see in a squat, and is done shallow so that you don't lose that strong arch. This is called an arched-back good morning. The other style is the round back good morning or bent-over good morning, and it's deeper with more of a neutral/rounded position. Sink your chest slightly to round the upper back (you don't want to overdo this) and then go down until your torso is slightly over parallel and then arch your upper back coming out. You should feel this working your lower back much harder than arch back GM. Try to keep your lower back tight.

Here is an example:

Thanks guys, I'm thinking of switching up my routine a now and I have been looking into the 5/3/1 and texas method. Bri, i know you have been getting good results with the 5/3/1/ but I'm not sure I would benefit from it because of my running. The only other routine I was looking at was WS4SB but my gym doesn't have boxes or many of the other necessary tools to really take advantage of that program.

Any suggestions guys?

After I missed Friday I figured I might as well take a week off. I'll be back in tomorrow. And no, I did not do work because she was still "in love" with Mason "The Line"" Dickhead. She was on a "break" plus she wouldn't shut up about him so I had a lot of things working against me. But she broke up with him like Monday night for good, too little too late. Then again it's not like its a big loss. Don't worry about the $, you can get me back in a few weeks. Good luck to you too with finals.

Ya, you should come compete with me bro. Some stuff is allowed as RAW but idk what the limit is, obviously a suit is too much but idk where the line is with wraps. I'll check it out though. And I've actually been putting a lot of weight on recently so by Feb I'll prob be around 148 anyways. But you should come with me, I got an extra singlet you could prob squeeze into ; ). Plus it's not like I'm going to win or anything, just come check it out with me. PLZZZZZZZ....

haha we'll see maybe we can talk the other one of me to go... I've been weighing less and less so I think I could squeeze into that 148 lb class if i needed too, but the running has killed most of my once semi-respectable lifts.

bhodel112
12-15-2009, 01:02 PM
No! Eat up and be comfortable at 165. It's 2 1/2 months from now so I'm sure you'll be a little heavier. Plus you don't wanna cut and hurt your lifts. And you could both go 165 and see who's better...

one rep under
12-15-2009, 08:51 PM
Haha the fact of the matter is right now im closer to 148 then 165 having weighed in at 155 today. I'm eating just as much if not more than I was in the past but running is keeping me lean and mean... while simultaneously decimating lifts. I don't feel the urge to compete, I maxed in the gym before break and thats good enough for me to be honest.

Back to finals studying.

Added a day say I can hit 3 chin up workouts this week

Bw +25
3x5

Bw 1x15

One of my goals for the end of the school year roughly 3 months from now is to get 30+ chins and a max chin up of BW +70lbs.

I took the week off from running this week but did manage to get on the bike for 5 days to help salvage some of my cardio thats taking a beating cause of the holidays and then cause of this nagging knee injury.

I'll see how it goes next week.

Started Texas Method today simply because i wasnt following WS4SB enough and wanted something with a little more structure.
My routine is gonna be very press, power clean, and chin up dominated with little benching. Im running only around 20- 30 miles a week but am starting to add some speed work in.


Monday- volume day- Week 1
Squat 225 5x5
Press 105 5x5
Power Cleans- 155- 8x3
Pull ups- Bw+ 30 3x5

This actually felt fairly difficult, I'm not used to all that volume especially on the power cleans. Other than that this was pretty good. I'm hoping that on a 3 day cycle I can make better gains while still keeping my mileage the same as far as running goes.

Nice work man! I like the TM because there is a lot of thinking and listening to your body involved. Like, you gotta constantly switch up the volume, sets, reps, weight, etc... in order to keep making progress on intensity day. If you do it smart, and train hard you'll make some killer progress though. It looks like you're well on your way!

I'll try and go to one this summer if i can fit it into work and summer classes.
