    Cheers Luna, Bench seems to be doing well currently, like keeping the frequency up on it too.

    Friday 6th April

    5by5 Advanced W2D3


    Lower back was still pretty sore from Wednesday, maybe paused deads will be a Friday thing so more days to rest up the back before squatting...

    Squats
    60kg (132lbs) * 5
    100kg (220lbs) * 5
    Work Sets
    140kg (308lbs) * 5 - B from here
    150kg (330lbs) * 5
    160kg (352lbs) * 5 - WW from here
    172.5kg (380lbs) * 5
    182.5kg (402lbs) * 5

    Bench Press
    Bar * 8
    60kg (132lbs) * 3 - 2 sets
    Work Sets
    105kg (231lbs) * 5 - 5 sets - WW on these

    Pendlay Rows
    60kg (132lbs) * 5
    Work Sets
    85kg (187lb) * 5 - 5 sets


    Notes/Thoughts:

    - Squats felt good considering the back DOMS. Pretty decent reps, not easy but feel I could've cranked out another couple at 182.5kg if I had to.

    - Bench was nice an easy, just grooving the groove. Paused last rep of last three sets.

    - Back was smashed so made the rows a tad harder in terms of holding the form.

    -Given I hit the 5 at 182.5kg (402lbs) with a sore lower back gives me a bit of a boost for Monday's 5*5 @ 187.5kg (413lbs). Bring on the challenge!

    Did some conditioning on Saturday, Tyre flipping, box jumps (nice an high) an burpees. Was killer but good!!!

    Monday 9th April

    5 by 5 Advanced W3D1

    100kg (220lbs) * 5

    Dips
    +20kg (44lbs) * 12, * 12, * 8

    DB Row
    26kg's (54lbs) * 30

    Notes/Thoughts:

    - Squats: The weight was up nice and high this week and I was expecting to have a real battle here today. So I really got my head into the game from the start. Aggression was high and just approached the bar every set with an attitude to really smash it an push hard each rep. All sets went pretty well. Depth felt (and looked on the vid) good and majority of the reps were fast. Technique was good too, tried not to let it slip with the aggression and in general it stayed good. Still need to focus on keeping the chest high an driving the hips forward when getting tired. But todays training means my head is in a good place with the squats, not afraid of 180+ any more

    -Bench: This was always going to be a challenge. Building up to a top set that I had never hit before (5 * 125kg). Again kept focussed, tried to keep form good and really squeeze the bar. No vids as my TP for the day had left by now. All prescribed sets up until the final went really well. The first 3 reps were good, 4th was a battle an then the 5th I needed a little spot to lock it out. Still pretty pleased 4 * 125 is a rep PR.

    - Rows: Nice an smooth. Focussing on squeezing the shoulder blades together. I really enjoy these.

    - Accessory: Just hitting some rep work. Try strengthen those tri's and grow that upper back .

    Can't wait for the rest of the week now. Bring it.

    Do you always push your hips backwards like that when you squat? I just noticed it is pretty pronounced when I watch you shoot from the hole. Regardless, great work done here man. No joke with those rows, too.

    Actually what you're seeing there is him NOT pushing with this hips at first. He squats the weight up on his quads and his glutes don't kick in till he's halfway up. Something he'd need to work on, firing his glutes out of the hole. Regardless, squats were still strong.

    Cheers Brian, Tom, Coke & Luna!! Loving the extra squatting but looking forward to it being twice a week rather than 3 times once the program deloads and moves into 3*3's.

    Any advice to help fix it? After that comment earlier and seeing it in the vid I am trying hard to think about it when coming out of the hole. Is it a matter of thinking about throwing the hips forward and up? Any tips would be much appreciated Tone!!!

    Week Three is becoming brutal...

    Can't wait to be out of this darn 5 * 5 and into the 3 * 3, so glad deads are only 3 * 5! Would not have made it to 5 * 5 on them today!

    Wednesday 11th April 2012

    W3D2 5*5 Advanced


    Squats
    60kg (132lbs) * 8
    100kg (220lbs) * 3 - 2 sets
    140kg (308lbs) * 3 (WW from here)
    Work Sets
    160kg (352lbs) * 5 - 5 sets (final three sets with belt)

    Military Press
    40kg (88lbs) * 5
    Work Sets
    55kg (121lbs) * 5 - 5 sets

    Deadlifts
    100kg (220lbs) * 2 - 2 sets
    140kg (308lbs) * 2 - 2 sets
    180kg (396lbs) * 1 - 2 sets (final set with B, B from here)
    200kg (440lbs) * 2
    Work Sets
    212.5kg (468lbs) * 5 - 3 sets

    Pause at Knee Deads
    140kg (308lbs) * 5 - 2 sets

    DB Rows
    26kg's (54lbs) * 30

    Notes / Thoughts:
    - Squats: Nice an light today, felt good an smooth. Added belt as felt the lower back getting tight after second set so wanted to try relieve it a bit. Can't wait till I don't have to squat before deads...

    - Military Press: The 55kg didn't feel easy but not hard. Probably a couple reps in the tank each set but did feel like I was working today which was good.

    - Deads: All warm ups felt good, as did the first 3 reps of each set. But man the last two reps are hard. I do not do well with 5 reps with decent weight on deads the last two reps on the last two sets were slow an I had to reset the grip as hands were gone. Can't wait to just nail next weeks 3 * 5 and move into the 3's!!!!!

    - Accessory: Short an sweet. Only two sets of paused deads as back was cramping. Just keeping the DB rows consistent.

    Cheers Brian, appreciate it!

    Here's what I made today team. A foam roller that will never break down. PVC pipe covered in a thin bed mat covered in duct tape. Boom!

    In the making:


    Made:


    Got all the materials off a plumber friend of mine as well as a hockey ball to help with soft tissue therapy too. So 100% free!! Should be very helpful for sorting out the tight hips an low back!
