Thought I'd ressurect this bad boy, why not eh?
Haven't blogged in ages, quick catch up been running with strength trainin last few months. Becoming more more interested in what I can lift than a certain look. Also going to be training with strong men so all this is in mind eg no wrist wraps on pulling movements. In the last 8 months I have gained 21kg of mass & want to add more body weight still:) bulk bulk bulk lol
Seriously the heavier you get the more you can toss about!
First session week 1 on cycle 2 of Wendelrs 5/3/1, running with the programmed assistance lift template from 2nd edition. I will stress that I will not log any weights or reps for my assistance other than what movements I did because I simply don't care, these aren't deal breakers. The programmed assistance runs very much like 5/3/1 set up eg percentages of the lift: close grip based of 1rm of 95kg.
I will post some pics soon & also will put some food logs up as (if anyone who reads my posts on diets) Well so people can see what I'm shovelling down my trap. As always I'm not vegan but eggs ect are sourced from a couple I know, as is milk & cheese if you see it listed (perk of knowing country folk)
Any weights that I log over the next few weeks certainly wont be anything spectacular, anyone who's ran 5/3/1 knows its roughly 12ish weeks before your back to the maxes the lifts were based off of. This however allows for some rep records to be started
Body weight 84kg (rougly) Monday-6th-feb
Cycle 2 week 1 (3x5)
Quick blast on treadmill
Warmed up with lighter sets & some band stretches.
Military press: 32.5kg 37.5kg 42.5kg +9 reps (wide grip chins between warm up & working sets)
Close grip bench press (3x10) 40kg 50kg 60kg
Various chin up grips 3x10 (would do these weighted but chins between military drained me)
Assistance: seated cable row, tricep rope extensions, cable bicep curls (these virtually had no weight on)
I can't stress the assistance were very light, I personally wouldn't do so much but the assistance movements we're very easy & this is Wendlers template.
Millitary press was comfy, no problems with shoulder joint or weight (easy). I had completed this workout in under an hr.
