    Some people thrive on training at home, good deal...you can always step into a commercial gym for a change here and there down the line.

    This is my plan for the forseeable future:
    Day 1 - OH Press 5/3/1 Training Max=105
    accessory work:
    OH Press x 10 reps x up to 5 sets (on these I'll be using RPEs to judge how many sets; as long as I have at least 1 rep in the tank I will go to the next set; also will not go to failure on these)
    Standing Skull Crushers as above - the lift could change based on how my elbows feel

    Day 2 - Deadlift 5/3/1 Training Max=275
    accessory work:
    Deadlifts x 10 reps x up to 5 sets (sets determined as above)
    Ab Wheel x 5 sets of near failure (I hate this thing and am not any good at it so we'll see how that works out )

    Day 3 - Rest

    Day 4 - Bench Press 5/3/1 Training Max=180
    accessory work
    Bench Press x 10 reps x up to 5 sets (as above for sets)
    BB Rows x 10 reps x up to 5 sets (as above for sets)

    Day 5 - Squat 5/3/1 Training Max=225
    accessory work
    Squats x 10 reps x up to 5 sets (as above for sets)
    Side Bends x 10 reps x 5 sets

    Definitely interested in feedback from anyone/everyone on the programming and accessory work.

    Thanks in advance,

    Matt

    The plan looks good. I like weighted side bends.

    I think that looks like a great plan. The ab wheel will kick your butt for sure, especially if you don't use it a lot. The only thing I would probably change if it were me would be the standing skull crushers. I'd probably switch them out and do dips instead, but if you don't have a way to do them at home then that makes sense. I don't really know how effective bench dips are because I've never done them a lot.

    Overall great plan, bud.

    2/11/10

    About 35 degrees in the garage, nice and brisk

    Deadlifts
    180 x 5
    210 x 5 (with belt)
    235 x 8 (+5lb PR for 8 reps) est. max 297 (with belt)

    135 x 10 RPE-6
    135 x 10 reps x 3 sets RPE-7
    135 x 10 reps RPE 8

    68 reps of deadlifts and I'm done.

    Got a PR soley because I haven't done more than 5 reps in Deadlift in about 4 months. Still I'll take it.

    I also learned that eating a ****-ton of food for dinner and then trying to push against your belt to do a max deadlift an hour later is not a fun experience

    Was supposed to do some Ab work but I'll be honest. I'm totally pussing out. I'm spent after those deads. Maybe tomorrow.

    35 degree training... hardcore... I love it! Nice work on the deads, 68 reps is no joke, that would zap me for the day. Good work!

    Thanks guys. Planning on doing bench at the gym tonight but it's not going to work out. Snow and ice on the roads so I'm going to have to do it tomorrow. Luckily, my bench should be here by the end of the week and then I can just freeze my ass off in the garage instead of dealing with the roads

    Did get in 20 minutes of snow shoveling so I guess that's something

    2/15/10

    Cycle 1 Wave 1 Bench Press

    Bench Press (sleeves)
    120 x 5
    135 x 5
    155 x 10 (est. max = 207)
    95 x 10 reps x 5 sets

    Barbell Rows (supinated grip)
    95 x 10 reps x 5 sets

    Everything felt really good. Very happy with the bench press. Not a PR but definitely the most reps I've done with anything in a while.

    On a side note, pretty sure this is my last day at Powerhouse. They took out the Monolift, crammed a bunch of **** around the bench I usually use, and I'm not sure if I can take watching a half dozen guys bench press but not one of them touched the entire time

    My bench is on the way so it should be a pretty smooth transition to the Garage.

    High reps are a little different. You got ten in, so that's good. If you would hae been in this morning you wold have seen me touch on every rep.
    Now I have to wonder here is Matt? Is he looking, judging? LOL

    No way they got rid of the monolift, how come? Curl bunnies complaining that the pins don't go low enough to use for bicep curls?

    Nice benching by the way mate, keep up the good work.

    Not really sure why they got rid of it. They did add this weird looking Nautilus full cage. I saw two guys in it doing 1/2 range RDLs with about 115?!?!

    2/16/10 Cycle 1 Wave 1 Squats

    Squats
    150 x 5
    170 x 5
    195 x 11 (PR) est. max = 266
    115 x 10 reps x 5 sets

    Had to break up the 5 sets of 10 so that I did 2 sets as part of my warm ups and the last 3 after the all out set. This worked a lot better than trying to do all 5 sets after the max set.

    Side Bends using a Rolling Thunder
    56lb x 10 reps on each side x 5 sets
    Grip was starting to go on the left side on the last 2 sets.

    It was a little over freezing and I had to keep opening and shutting the Garage door so that I had light but all in all a session that I'm pretty proud of. Probably more happy with the fact that I got all the sets in than the PR.

    Also, thanks for the encouragement. It keeps me moving in the right direction.

    Nice session man... 195x11 isn't easy... especially when it's squatting. "Garage was a little above freezing"... man I love that... and opening/shutting for light... that's Rocky IV type training.

    Pretty excited about the program and the Garage lifting. I need to find something to squat to so that I can gauge depth better. Probably use an old paint can. I also have a pair of Convict wraps in the mail. The bench will be here in a few days and then I can really get my crap together

    Great job lately, bud. 5/3/1 is a really effective program. You already look like you are doing well with it. Did you buy all of your equipment new or used?
