I wasn't thinking about the fact you are maxing out the following day., I guess I was more just talking about a style to train to get used to heavy weights again.
What do you mean, again?!
Why not just rest for the day?
I'm always stronger on a day after a light work out than on a day after a day off.
You have valid reasons for not training a while. Take it as startegic deconditioning
Good luck with your training!
Today i was really
I guess this is partly due to the quite heavy workout on tuesday and partly to my mental approach. I knew i'd take it easy today.
Squats: 100x5, 110x4, 120x3, 125x1, 130x1, 135x1, 140x1, 140x1, 140x1, 135x1. All reps were really deep and with very clean form - except the 140's
That was rubbish, hope for better tomorrow.
Bench: 90x3, 100x1, 102.5x1, 105x1, 107.5x1, 107.5x1, 110x1, 100x5. Easy. Experimented with grip width, conclusion: it doesn't matter at all
Chin ups: 35x2, 37.5x2, 40x2, 42.5x1. Easy.
Deads: 100x3, 140x1, 160x1, 160x1, 140x1, 100x5. Damn. I was just to tired to do more, and of course had in mind not to do too hard sets. So i just called it a day.
Walking: 90min with shopping in between.
Good luck on the max attempts! What are you going to try for?
My goals are: squat 150kg, bench 115kg, deadlift 180kg.
Those will be my first attempts after a thorough warm up. I'm most uncertain about the squat. My previous max was 145, but it feels as if that is still my max. We'll see.
