As it's my long week of work next week & I last trained Thurs I thought I may as well go in & get a day a head while I had time. Last trained back a week ago to so no real harm...

Back workout

Deads light & not programmed

Mainlift:

Deadlift: all 5 reps 60kg 70kg 80kg 100kg x2

Assistance

Pull ups: various grips 5x10

Barbell rows: 60kg 3x8 (been a while since I did these so went light)

Kroc row: 24kg dumbbell 25 reps per arm

T-bar row: 40kg x8 50kg 2x8 (again not done these for an age so backed off a little)

Summary

Must be my body fighting off my current ailment because I had little energy after the barbell rows, literally soaked through by the time I came out the rack. I'm really not enjoying lifting right now, at all :? :? :?
Going to drag it out till August, have a week off/away & hopefully go again.

Long & busy day at work. New role really is demanding at times, more so it being Monday with office/manager's in. We also have a huge audit this week, basically if we fail we cannot trade (well we get a month to sort the issues but we usually pass very well) so it's shit hitting the fan time.

Speaking of which I myself was like shit in a field today, everywhere was I.

Cycle 1 week 2 (3x3)

Main lift:

OHP: (warm up sets all 5 reps 20kg 25kg 30kg) 35kg x3 40kg x3 45kg x3+6

Assistance (based off Matt Kroc's program):

Barbell curls super set with OHP: x2 warm up sets then 30kg 3x10

Barbell shrugs (no straps): 70kg x15 80kg x15 85kg x15

Front plate raise: 15kg plate 3x15

Hammer curls super set with front plate raise: 12kg dumbbells 3x12

Rear raises: 8kg dumbbells 3x15

Ab's:

Side bends with 20kg plate 35 reps, Hammer strength crunch frame +15kg 35 reps, hanging knee raises 35 reps

Summary:

Really enjoyed this tonight, the supet setting kept the work intense & the workout well under an hour, perfect. Still feeling out where I'am in regards to the weight on my assistance lifts, I know I'm lifting lighter atm but I don't want to be a hero & rush a head. Didn't push the OHP as much as usual as I knew there was a lot of reps to come after.

Post work out grub:

x2 protein shake with 5grams of bcaa/glutamine/creatine

then once I go home half a block of tofu stir fried with a whole pack of veggie, peanut oil & a cup of brown rice. Followed by half a tin of kidney beans & mixed salad, dark choc alpro soya desert :D

Todays sound track

Hey mate, have you got a link to the Matt Kroc programme you alluded to?

Thanks MF.

Look at the bottom, has a two week assistance program & a section how to program the main lifts.

I just used 5/3/1 instead of Kroc's version...

If you're starting to feel a bit worn down and not liking the lifting too much at the moment, what do you think of Wendler's suggestion of doing a 2-day/week split? It would definitely give you a bit more recovery time, and with the stress from work that might be a good short-term solution.

Do you ever take your pulse rate mate?

I just posted about it in my journal ~ I'm normally in the mid 40's but yesterday woke up with a HR in the 70's. Felt fine at the time but because of that I decided not to train. Sure enough, turns out I ended up getting a bit of a gastric bug. Was back down to the high 50's today and feeling much better.

If you know what your normal range is then you can easily tell when you are starting to either become sick and/or overtrained; IMHO it's an extrememely reliable way to monitor things. Just throwing that out there MF.

Tbh mini I haven't ever thought to..it's not something that's ever interested me but I'll read up on it.

How I'm training right now is helping, not push pushing the main lift but hitting more higher reps (like 10 max haha)

Also the re-programming has helped

Thanks for the post. Lifting two days a week would not be very productive for me though
