60x3 Last rep was a 5+ second grind

I was surprised never done this good in strict i guess the push pressing helped. Legs and glutes still beat to death from wednesday so i guess i had no leg drive left for push pressing.

Trying to really bodybuild here with full range of motion, slow controlled eccentrics as well as concentric and very little rest between sets. Done this exercise for over 6 months i think and only thing it has done is develop one freaking head of the tricep significantly(visible). Maybe ive done something wrong...

28.11 Legs

Bw:99,9kg too many birthdays and stuff...

Feeling pain in right hip flexor but after a ton of "bulgarian" lunge w/e it gives

Squat
barx10
barx10
60x10
80x5
100x5
110x5
120x2

Think my squat form needs fixing and throwing all the bs exercises to carbage for a long while. A ton of form work and glute work my knees fall in and squat almost looks like gm. Piriformis also got irritated but not badly.

Pause Squats
60x5
80x5
100x3
80x6
90x5

Need to start doing ton of these to improve form

Ab crunch
bwx20
bwx20

Ton of various $h1t for glutes i dont really find anything good. Glute bridges just seem to tense hammies and calves and not that much glutes. I miss that seated abduction or w/e machine that the other gym had. It worked wonders for my "side" glutes! Ill have saturday as another squat day to get in technique and work on prehab stuff for glutes.

Kimmo, if you create a thread in Journal Discussions then people can discuss your workouts, instead of posting into your log, which is what I'm doing :sad:

So, sorry to post right into your log, but keep working those glute bridges until you can feel it in the glutes. Its a technique thing, you gotta get it right. maybe take an off day and just do them until they feel right. The reward is tremendous.

You can try to alter the position of the feet on the glute bridges. People have it different. Some say they feel glutes when the heels are closer to butt, some say farther from the butt. You can also try heels only position, and maybe some hip thrust variation. Focus only on the glute, think about it. That might help as well.

For more of the abductor side of butt, I have found side lying clams and side lying abductions with wall support being the most useful getting the burn on the glute medialis/sides. No need for machines

I used to do them alot way back when i had serious pain my right hip flexor. Its really hard to get the focus on glutes but yeah i guess i have to keep trying im not sure if its a fire up issue or just weakness since im really prone to develop imbalances in my right side which is my workouts have so much db work. Just been negleting those lunges for quite sometime :D

For smaller glute muscles started doing seated band pull apart with legs, thats working like charm. 100-200 reps and piriformis pain is gone and side of glutes is burning. I did this after i posted the wednesdays workout here and i had very little pain next day. Going to see how that goes...

About those pause squats... i thought i had bad workout wednesday and the soreness in my glutes and quads is something incredible... quads barely ever get sore from squatting. Im walking around like a cripple O_o

30.11 Shoulders/traps/arms

Went to a gym at my work as the one i usually go was closed.

Bw: 99,1kg

Clean & Press(each rep cleaned)
barx10
barx10
40x10
50x5
55x3
60x3
65x0
60x2 just press

Cleaning irritated the piriformis a bit...

Some weird front press machine
3 sets and this is the worst machine ever. Instead of moving behind the head/overhead its moving further from body. Very unnatural range of motion... Funny thing is if the seat/back support would be otherway around it would work good :D

Db Upright Row
xxkgx8
15x15
15x14
15x16
15x12
15x10

Very short short and strict controlled movement. Great pump in shoulders and biceps!

Tricep Pushdowns
5 sets

Db Curls
5 sets

Didnt feel strong but got a nice workout. Will be making changes to routine. Less total volume, more frequency for shoulders and arms and dropping chest work for now. Hoping this will spark some size gains in arms,shoulders and traps without compromising too much strength gains.

barx10
barx5
barx5

Front Squat
barx10
barx10
40x10
60x5

These cause no hip flexor, piriformis, glute or low back pain???????? Back squats tend to cause slight pain with same weights. Maybe i should stick with these since im forced to use much less weight

Got the form right finally. Ive been using non-working side hand to support myself abit. Now i accidentally did it otherway around i used working sides hand to support so the ass moves freely sideways when i lower the weight and lift up holy sh*t these hit hard on glutes!

Glute Bridge on smith
barx10
barx15
barx10

Felt right in the glutes! Still im skeptic because i had nice pre-exhaustion/activation on those single leg deads

Ab wheel
bwx8
bwx8
bwx8

Leg pull-a-parts with band
100+ reps

Burn baby burn!

Front squats definitely felt good but back squat just seems to be going down. Maybe ill just stop back squatting for while...

Facepull

Side delts, supraspinatus, rear delts tired :O

Ok this was a horrible workout... Wednesdays fooling around with power cleans and front squats really did the trick for upper body!
Thought id get away with only 3 sets of pc´s but no... Ive done this mistake before but dont know when will i learn not to do it:D
Worst thing about doing pc´s between upper body sessions is that supraspinatus tends to get overtaxed and start aching and i can feel it right now but its nothing a little rest wont cure.

Might even skip monday...

One thing i find weird. Almost zero back pain, glute (bad) pain, hip flexor pain, piriformis pain. Coincidence that after i get a good glute workout im not in pain?
