    Back Under the Bar: Press Day

    Did as much as I can with my shoulder being off a bit still. However, after putting more effort into rows/other back movements, my bench press form is feeling much improved. The shoulder issue also seems to be triggered by overhead or fly type movements, so I should be able to keep benching (carefully, at least) for now. As far as the programming goes, it doesn't feel like I'm doing enough, but I'm going to reserve judgement until I can give 100% on this workout.

    Bench:
    (forgot warm-up)
    125lbs x5
    115lbs 1x8 + 2x10

    OH DB Press:
    25lbs 1x8 + 1x6

    DB Reverse Flies
    8lbs 1x10 - had two more sets to do, but my shoulder wasn't feeling it.

    Planks:
    35 seconds x3
    Age: 20 / Height: 6' 1" / Weight: 200lbs / Squat: 315lbs / Deadlift: 325lbs / Bench: 225lbs

    Back Under the Bar: Deadlift Day

    Deadlift form is taking a while to come back, but it should come around soon enough. I'm finding my back in general is a huge weak point, which I expected. Hopefully this program will address this, if not, I'll make a couple tweaks. My grip is another weakness, but that should come along as well, just have to be patient.

    As far as the program goes, I think I'm going to drop front squatting until I'm back into the swing of things, as it might be too much after all the glue, ham, and low-back work. Arm hangs were also really challenging, which was pretty eye opening. Finally, I had to skip assisted pull-ups until I have a means of doing them. Just have to find or order some tension bands first.

    Deadlift:
    bar x10
    135lbs x8
    155lbs x5
    165lbs x3
    185lbs x3
    200lbs 3x5
    135lbs 1x8

    Glute-Ham Raises:
    no extra weight 3x8

    Back Extensions:
    25lbs 2x10

    (Pull-up Work)
    Flexed-arm hang:
    4 x 15 seconds

    DB Row:
    35lbs x10
    35lbs x8
    35lbs x6

    Farmer’s Walks:
    45lbs/hand - 3 x distance (not sure, the gym's track isn't full size or marked off)
    Age: 20 / Height: 6' 1" / Weight: 200lbs / Squat: 315lbs / Deadlift: 325lbs / Bench: 225lbs

    Squat Focus Day - Monday

    Good News - Bad News workout today. Good news is that my squat form continues to improve, I've figured out a more effective warm-up, and I was able to do lots of upper-back work as my shoulder is starting to feel a bit better. Bad news is that my SI joint feels out again, so my back tightened up real quick and I had to cut my squat workout real short.


    Squat:
    bar x8
    135lbs x10
    155lbs x8
    175lbs x6
    185lbs x1

    Barbell Lunges
    Bar 1x12
    95lbs 2x6

    Good Mornings:
    95lbs 3x8

    Calf Raises:
    110lbs 2x20

    (Pull-up Work)
    Negative Chin-ups:
    4 x 3

    Barbell Row
    95lbs x10
    105lbs x8
    115lbs x6
    105lbs x12 - pretty rough reps on this set, form wise.

    Wide Grip Pulldown
    80lbs x12
    100bs x10
    120lbs x4/110bs x4 - This set was pretty much a gong-show, but also another lesson learned.

    As a side note, the pull-up work is just killing my grip, which is awesome, as that is a weakness that I really want to bring up to par.

    Back Under the Bar: Pressing Day

    My shoulder is feeling a lot better, but my chest/collarbone/upper back still feel out-of-whack. Oh well. On another note, my wrist strength seemed to fail long before my actual pressing strength did today. Anyone have any ideas on why that might have been? I also tried out face pulls today, and prefer them a ton to reverse flies, so they'll be switched in to the program.


    Push-ups:
    2x10

    Bench:
    bar x12
    95lbs x10
    105lbsx8
    125lbs x3

    120lbs 1x10 - 1x8 - 1x6

    Back Under the Bar - Deadlift Day

    Still haven't found a way to do assisted pull-ups at my gym yet, so I have to make sure I get to ordering some bands soon. I ended up subbing them out for pulldowns.. Other than that, this was a pretty good workout.

    Back Under the Bar: Squat Day

    Funny enough, I didn't actually get to do any squatting today. I managed to pull/strain/do something to my left hammy last night or so, and it was bothering me all day. No idea what it was, cause it was fine over the weekend and after my last WO. Oh well. I did get a chance to confirm a theory I've had, which is that my quads are lagging rather far behind my P-chain strength (unlike the usual other way around), due to not bending them much for almost 2 years (recurring knee tendinitis = a reluctance to do any sort of quad involved movement).

    Leg Press: (Weights listed by plate total, no idea how much the sled weighs)
    90 x12
    180lbs 3x10

    Calf Raises:
    110lbs 3x20

    (Pull-up Work)

    Negative Chin-ups:
    4 x 3

    Barbell Row: (did these with a just-outside-shoulder-width underhand grip, and felt they were a lot more effective. Might experiment with overhand, but definitely not going to continue pulling with my bench spacing)
    95lbs x10
    115lbs x8
    125lbs x6
    115lbs x12

    Wide Grip Pulldown
    85lbs x12
    100lbs x10
    100lbs x8

    Back Under the Bar: Pressing Day

    Not too much to note today, other than my bench felt fine this time around. I remembered an old cue I read a while back, "push your self into the bench/away from the bar" and it helped a ton with keeping the lats tight and I got quite a few more reps out of it.

    2x10

    Bench:

    Back Under the Bar: Pressing Focus Day

    Around the start of this week, I tweaked my right shoulder somehow while sleeping. It felt fine enough during warm ups and push-ups, but started giving me a bit of trouble on the benching. I did a couple tests at home (youtube learning ftw) and it doesn't seem like an impingement, but I'm not sure what else it could be. Feels like it's in the front of the shoulder, closer to the bicep than to the pec. Hopefully it'll be gone soon enough, or at least isn't a major problem, cause it didn't hurt at all last week.

    Push-ups:
    2x12

    Bench:
    Bar x12
    100lbs x10
    115lbs x8
    135lbs x3
    155lbs x3
    -Stopped here, before the 3x10 sets

    DB OH Press:

    Back Under the Bar: Deadlift Day

    Finally got a chance to get a pulling day in, and I decided to try out sumo deadlifts on a whim. Let me tell you, best impulse decision of my lifting career! With my short arms/legs and longer torso, the leverages for sumo felt a ton better than for regular. It also tore a couple layers of skin off my shins, so I've got a great case of deadlift shin now. Feels great to be getting back in the swing of things.

    Deadlift:
    Bar x10
    135lbs x8
    155lbs x5
    185lbs x3
    205lbs x1
    215lbs 2x5
    215lbs 1x10 (lost track of reps on this set, oh well )

    Glute Ham Raises ssw/ DB Curls:
    15lbs 3x8 - 20lbs /arm 2x8, 1x10

    Back Extensions:
    25lbs 2x10

    Back Under the Bar: Squat Day

    Apparently, listening to impulses every now and again isn't a terrible idea! Decided to try out 5x5 for my work sets today, and it went great. I suppose it could even be called a Rep PR. It was also much easier than I expected, so it looks like my strength is starting to come back pretty quickly. Feels amazing to be getting back into the groove.

    Squats:
    Bar x12
    135lbs x8
    165lbs x6
    185lbs x3

    Back Under the Bar: Deadlift Day

    I've definitely got to get some shin guards or something. I love pulling sumo, but the knurling on the bar ends up directly where the skin is thinnest on my shins, and as hardcore as bleeding all over can be, it's really not the greatest in a public gym, nor do the scabs look very appealing
    Also, it feels like my SI joint is out again. I've really gotta figure out why it keeps bugging me.

    Deadlifts:
    45lbs x10
    135lbs x8
    165lbs x5
    185lbs x3

    Thanks! It feels great to be moving iron again, and without any goal to rush towards, like basketball season or some such interruption.

    Back Under the Bar: Squat Day

    Really enjoying 5x5 for squats so far,but they've been pretty easy, so I'm gonna try adding 10lbs a week rather than 5. My SI joint is apparently still out of whack, even though it felt fine for my week off (school Grad retreat), definitely a reminder to finally get started on daily stretching and mobility work. Also switched up two things:
    1) Going to do Reverse Alternating Lunges, which I found work way better for me than regular lunges.
    2) Switched reps on calf training to 4x10, rather than 2x20. It let me focus more on not bouncing and getting a good, full ROM.

    Squats:
    Bar x10
    135lbs x8
    175lbs x6
    190lbs x3
    210lbs 5x5

    Good Mornings:
    135lbs 3x8

    Reverse Alt. BB Lunges:
    95lbs 1x8/leg

    Single Leg Calf Raises:

    Back Under the Bar: Pressing Day

    Well, it's about time! I missed my last two pressing workouts, so it's been roughly two weeks (three if you count a lame workout before the missed ones) since I've done any sort of pressing. On the bright side, it was a great workout, and I pinpointed my shoulder/collarbone pain a bit better, should hopefully be able to get that sorted out soon.

    Back Under the Bar: Deadlift Day

    I've solved my deadlift shin problem with soccer socks and 1/8th inch thick rubber strips, and as a result, had a great session today. Now I just have to tweak form a bit to prevent smashing the bar into my inner knee every rep, and I'm good to go. The home-made guards should work fine as a temporary solution, that's for sure. Other note: After reading up more on proper barbell rowing, I tried them out today and felt a huge difference from how I used to do them. I was already considering a significant increase in back training (Left lat is particularly lagging), so this is all the more encouraging towards taking that path. Hitting my biceps more (have barely trained them at all, really) and making them grow a bit more is a welcome side-effect as well!

    Deadlift:
    Bar x10

    Back Under the Bar: Squat Day

    Excellent workout today. My warm up went really well, and I ended up doing 5lbs more than the planned 220 I was going to use for squats. Felt awesome to finally be moving two plates again, and for a set PR too! I'm also loving reverse lunges, as they totally alleviate any knee pain I had with regular lunges.

    Squats:
    45lbs x10
    135lbs x8
    175lbs x6
    195lbs x3
    205lbs x1
    225lbs 5x5 -- 2 set PR!

    Alternating Reverse Lunges:
    95lbs x8/leg
    105lbs x8/leg
    110lbs x8/leg

    Good Mornings:

    Thanks! It's an awesome feeling to be making progress again.

    Back Under the Bar: Pressing Day

    Another good workout today. Fixed up a few issues with my bench form and saw an immediate difference, and also found a few weaknesses to work on (Upper body strength in general, but triceps and shoulders specifically). Will definitely play a part in the next program I move into.

    Push-ups:
    3x10

    Bench:
    bar x12
    85lbs x12
    100lbs x10
    115lbs x8
    135lbs x5
    155lbs x4
    125lbs x10
    125lbs x7

    DB Press:
    25lbs x8
    35lbs x5

    Cable Reverse Flies:
    10lbs x10/arm
    15lbs 3x10/arm

    Face Pulls:
    25lbs x10
    35lbs x10
    45lbs 3x10

    Chin-Ups:

    Back Under the Bar: Deadlift Day

    Sumos are going pretty well, I just have to tweak my form a bit more to resolve the occasional bar-on-knee collision, alleviate as much shin-shaving as possible (Ripping off scars is getting old ). I've also gotta work on grip strength, as double-overhand was near-failure around the 4th rep of my second work set. Mixed grip worked fine after I switched over. Other than that, I had another awesome workout.

    Deadlifts:
    bar x10
    135lbs x8
    185lbs x5
    205lbs x3
    225lbs x1
    235lbs 3x5

    Glute-Ham Raises:
    10lbs 3x8

    Barbell Rows:
    bar x10
    95lbs x8
    115lbs 3x5
    135lbs x5

    Lat Pull-Downs + Stability Ball Push-Ups:
    100lbs 4x8 + bodyweight 4x10

    DB Curls:
    15lbs 2x10

    Today I Realized: I Need To Do More Cardio

    The title pretty much says it all. After having done very little to no running since the end of basketball season (around mid-February or early March), my cardio is pretty much shot, as I found out today. Seeing as improving it can only help my lifts, as well as serve as a good way to do some active recovery, I've decided to start working on it at least once or twice a week with running and swimming. My short term running goal will be to ease myself into doing HIIT style training, while my swimming goals mostly revolve around relearning proper form (took swim lessons ages ago) and building up endurance.

    Today I both swam and ran, just to get a feel for both.
    In total, I jogged/ran 400m x3-4 with rests in between, and swam a total of around 800m, 100m at a time, with varying rest intervals.

    Once I get the hang of all this, I'll start tweaking the rest intervals and distances to better suit my goals. Gotta start somewhere, though!

    Update

    Well, today was the first quick trip to the gym in pretty much a full month. Life really seems to have a way of throwing things at you to keep you outta the gym! Grad, sick for a week and a half, house sitting, etc. Definitely should've done some stretching and such even if I couldn't lift, but oh well, another lesson learned!

    Anyways, speaking of lessons learned: I've come to the conclusion that my back is severely lacking in strength, and that I also need/want to start getting good at bodyweight movements like pull-ups, pistol squats, and push-ups. Reason #1 being that they are obviously beneficial in a whole bunch of ways. Reason #2 is that I'm headed to Spain for about 3 weeks in August, and won't have any gym access! In order to minimize strength loss, and maybe even make progress in some areas, I figured I should learn a few basic bodyweight movements that I can do wherever I end up.

    Finally, a summary of the quick, light workout I did today:

    Squats:
    Bar x8
    95lbs x8
    115lbs x8
    135lbs x8

    Scapular Retractions (Pull-up Grip):
    3x10

    DB Bench:
    15lbs x10
    25lbs x12

    Pistol Squats:
    (Started with a high box, worked down to just above parallel over three sets)
    3x8 /leg

    Chest Supported Row:
    45lbs x8
    90lbs x5
    Age: 20 / Height: 6' 1" / Weight: 200lbs / Squat: 315lbs / Deadlift: 325lbs / Bench: 225lbs

    Update II

    Still not going to the gym consistently, have got to fix that to make the best use of my time before I'm off to Spain. Either way, this was another lighter-but-still-productive workout. I sharpened up my bench form a bit, and figured out what I was doing wrong with DB shoulder presses. I also discovered that my grip strength drops like you wouldn't believe after any sort of break, oh well, better to know than not.

    Scapular Retractions:
    4x10

    Bench:
    bar x12
    95lbs x12
    115lbs x10
    135lbs 2x8
    135lbs 1x6

    Deadlift:
    bar x10
    135lbs 3x10

    DB Shoulder Press:
    20lbs x10
    30lbs x8
    35lbs x6

    Pistol Squats:
    (To parallel level box)
    1x8 /leg
    Age: 20 / Height: 6' 1" / Weight: 200lbs / Squat: 315lbs / Deadlift: 325lbs / Bench: 225lbs
