It's awesome how much I've progressed on the Deadlift. 9 months ago 150kg was my 1RM! Now it's 4x3 and thereabouts. It's nothing anymore! I love powerlifting.

20th February 2013

AM Workout:
Kettlebell Class: Cleans, Swings, Snatches, Windmills, TGUs, and so on. Semi-intense

5 hours later:

Bench Press
20/30/50/60
3x5 x 75kg

Pull-up
6 x 2

Incline DB Bench (Drop Set)
12/12, 9/5, 7/5 x 20kg/15kg

Landmine Row

Killer day. That all was accompanied by roughly 4 hours of skating as well. The drop sets were crazy. Killed my pecs and triceps. I'm happy that the 75kg is not a problem at all. Butt stayed down and weigth got up. No problem.

26th February 2013

Front Squat
20/50/80/90kg
3x4 x 105kg

KB Swings
3x15 x 20kg

Deload sets of Lat pulldowns

KB TGU
3 x 12kg
1 x 16kg

Front Squats weren't even bad, could have done sets of five. Getting stronger.
I wanted to take TGU's to my workouts, since I feel I have never really got the exercise rigth. As of now, my shoulder stability is the first to give in.

27th February 2013

Bench Press
20/30/40/60/70kg
3x3 x 80kg

12/12, 12/10, 7/5 x 20kg/15kg

Face-pulls

It seems like the 80kg on the bench is now nothing but a training weigth. Could bang sets with ease. Wasn't too close to failure. Awesome stuff. Good progress on the drop set as well, way more efficient and stronger. Tomorrow it's time for a pull-up record. Atleast 6 reps.

I'm trying out some back-off sets on the main lifts. Using 50% 1RM (roughly) for near-max reps. Felt like a killer for the first time. Good progress on the squats too, 105kg used to be a 3RM three months ago.

7th March 2013

Deficit Deadlift
20/60/80/100
4 x 120kg
4 x 130kg
4 x 135kg
4 x 137kg

Pin Front Squats
6x1 x 75kg

TGU
2x3 x 16kg

SS:
Jump Rope 5 x 100
Run 5 x 200m
Time: 8min 47s

Pulled up to heavy 4 on DL's. It went alrigth, didn't want to go balls to walls yet. That's coming in two next cycles. TGU's are getting better, and I'm starting to feel it in my core as well. Then I had a friend, who was a Finnish championship boxer, take a superset-interval with me. Boy, he finished a minute before I did. Boxers are great at rope jumping, that ain't just a movie myth. It killed me.

10th March 2013

BB Row
20/40/50
5 x 55kg
5 x 60kg
5 x 65kg
15 x 40kg

Overhead Press
20/40/40
5 x 45kg
5 x 47kg
5 x 50kg
12 x 30kg

Kroc Rows
5x10 x 25kg

Push-up complex
26 reps / 15 reps

Bicep curl
20/12

I have a major dislike on BB rows. I never get the heavy weigths to feel on my back, other than discomfort on the lower back area. Plus, I think the ROM isn't suitable on heavy rows, the BB should have a pad/leave a couple of inches short from full ROM. Higher volume works better. Will most likely use different pull-ups as my main pulling work.
