Abreviated session so I could spend time with my daughter.

bwt: 278

Warm up
Foam rolling
side lying windmills (10 each side)
Psoas stretch
third world squat

Complex
MMA Misery (minus BO row) 95lbs. 6reps x 5sets. 45 second rest. Dont seem to be getting any better at this, but I suspect I wont really know till I try to go to 30 second rest.

Squat
135 x 5
225 x 5
295 x 8 x 8
super setted with assisted pullups (140lb assist) 8 x 8 (I might have been able to go a little heavier on the pullups, but by the end I could barely hold on for the last few) 60 second rest between sets.

OH press
135 x 3
205 x 3
205 x 3
205 x 3
205 x 3

In between the working sets of the OH press I did inverted rows, 8reps each set(total of three sets). Ended up resting a good two minutes after each set of the inverted rows to get ready for OH press. Rested 60 seconds between the OH press and the rows.

Had other stuff planned, but ran out of time. The 8x8 squat paired with 8x8 pullups is brutal.

cool down: abreviated

Complex
MMA Misery (minus BO row) 6 x 5. rest intervals all screwed up. I did 45 seconds after the first one, and the second, but then some jack-off crowded around the power cage while I was in the hang clean portion of set 3. I had to stop, hold the bar for like a minute while he dinked around getting some pads off the wall. I had to rerack the weight and regroup. I did 45 seconds between sets 3 and 4, then 4 and 5. But it doesnt really count since I essentially started over again. This started the night out on the wrong foot.

Power Clean (1 minute rest)
134 x 5
215 x 2
215 x 2
215 x 2

Super setted with
DB Row (60 second rest)

Wore me out, huffing and puffing by this point but decided to press on.

Bench Hip Thrust
135lbs x 10reps x 2sets (two secon hold on top)

super setted with
Jumping Bulgarian split squats
bwt x 8reps x 2sets

Completely spent. staggered off to my cool down. Haven't felt this worn down in a long time.

Couldn't do 60 even once! Went down to 40lb dbs then tried again. Was having a real problem supinating sufficiently. Felt weird in my forearms.

bwt: 275

Today was screwed up. I did my warm up yesterday and the main lifts today. The gym was so busy I waited for 30 minutes yesterday to get a bar, then left in disgust. Also... didnt really feel like working out.

warm up
foam rolling
side lying windmills (10 each side)
Bird dogs x 20 (each held for a 5 count)
Hydrants x 20 (each held for a 5 count)
thoracic extension and rotation (10 each side)
Bird dogs x 10 (each held for a 5 count)
Hydrants x 10 (each held for a 5 count)
glute mobility
ankle mobility
Hamstring stretches
Shoulder mobility drills
third world squat (60 seconds x 2)

So that was all done yesterday, then today I did this

Complex
MMA Misery (WITH the BO row, decided I'd give it a try again). adding one more exercise makes it much harder. I like :evil: 6 x 4 45 second rest. There was no way I was going to be able to hold onto the bar for the 5th set. Woo.

First week of my annual "Progressive Pulls" cycle. I usually do it around Feb/March timeframe. Each exercise is performed for two sets of 9 reps.

Power Cleans
135lbs

High Pulls
185lbs

Dead lift
315lbs

Romanian Dead lift
225lbs

Pendlay Row
135 (too easy)

finished up with diamond pushups. How come these are so much harder than regular width ones? even one leg or feet elevated ones. I'm just sort of discovering these, enjoying the challenge.
15
15
12 (couldn't get 13)
ended with 15 normal pushups and they were a breeze.

Cool down: usual.

320 x 4

Wherein we see the benefits of a full night's rest before working out.

bwt: 274

foam rolling
side lying windmills (10 each side)
quadruped pendulums x 20 x 2 (each held for a 5 count)

Hamstring stretches
Shoulder mobility drills
third world squat (60 seconds x 2)

Complex
MMA Misery (full) 95lbs, 6reps x 5sets, 45sec, 45sec, 45sec, 75sec (no BO row on last set, forearms still fried)

Chin ups
bwt x 3
bwt x 2
(this is incredible progress for me!)

Squat
315lbs x 8 x 8 (60 second rest) (I think this may be a personal best for me, never done 8 x 8 with this much weight.)

Supersetted with

Front lever standing press (1 arm) (60 second rest)
35lbs x 8 x 8 Felt really easy, but my left shoulder ended up tweaked. Damn it!

Cable rear delt row
140lbs x 8reps x 3sets

bwt: 277

warm up
Foam rolling
side lying windmills x 10 (each side)
Bird dogs x 10 x 2 (each held for a 5 count)
Side lying clams x 20 (each held for a 5 count)
thoracic extension and rotation in the middle (10 each side)
Glute mobility
ankle mobility
Hamstring stretches
Shoulder mobility drills
third world squat (60 seconds x 2)

Complex
MMA misery (full) 6reps x 5sets but I tried using straps the last two sets, so I could do the full thing (with BO row) without my grip giving out. With straps makes it too easy for two reasons: 1) grip work is apparently a significant portion of the stress, and 2) I have to pause about 10 seconds after the hang cleans to ditch the straps, which lets me rest. So the last two sets were too easy. Gotta come up with something else I guess.

Week two of progressive pulls
Power Cleans
155lbs x 9 x 2

High Pulls (with straps)
205lbs x 9 x 2

Dead lift (second set with straps)
335lbs x 9 x 2

Romanian Dead lift (both sets with straps)
245lbs x 9 x 2

Pendlay Row
155 x 9 x 2 (too easy again, damn it!)

Assisted Pull ups (used neutral grip. My left shoulder still hurt from Saturday, when I used a pronated grip it felt like my shoulder was going to rip off... not good)
80lb assist 6reps x 3sets

super setted with

farmers carry
2 x 45lb plates around the basketball court. one circuit per set, three sets.

Diamond pushups
15, 15, 10, 10 (still damn hard!)

Cool down: usual + hamstring stretches
