SSW4D15: 19 July 2013

Squats | 45x5 | 115x5 | 185x5 | 225x5 | 255x5x3 |
Bench | 45x5 | 95x5 | 135x5 | 155x5 | 185x5x3 |
Deadlift | 135x5 | 195x5 | 245x5 | 275x5x3 |

The exercise was horrible. Not sure what happened but injured myself a bit. Quit working out for a while. Had a vacation the next week also so just took a little time off. Unfortunately, it turned into a good bit of time off.

04 September 2013

Squats | 45x5 | 135x5 | 165x5 | 205x5 | 235x5X3 |
Press | 45x5 | 55x5 | 65x5 | 75x5 | 100x5X3 |
Power Clean | 65x5 | 75x5 | 85x5 | 120x3X5 | 135x1 | 145x1 | 165x1 |

Wasn't much tired so I figured I'd add a few on the end. I'm really liking power cleans. I used to dread them when I first started but I actually look forward to them at the end of my sessions now.

13 September 2013

Squats | 45x5 | 135x5 | 165x5 | 205x5 | 240x5X3 |
Press | 45x5 | 55x5 | 65x5 | 75x5 | 105x5X3 |
Power Clean | 65x5 | 75x5 | 95x5 | 125x3X5 |
Pendlay Rows | 125X5X5 |
Hammer Curls | 15X50 |

The trainer at the gym had me do some Pendlay Rows as assistance exercises. I've wanted to integrate some upper back exercises in for some time so I gladly obliged. From the time to leave the gym and drive 20 minutes to my living space, I could feel that I actually had lats when stepping out of the car.

Trainer added the light hammer curls also to help with my tendonitis in the lateral part of my left elbow. It did the trick at least, the throbbing has gone away.

So far, I love the feeling in my upper back. Feels like I'm doing something. With the Jiu Jitsu and the added assistance exercise I'm hoping to get some development back there. I don't put too much stock in muscle size these days but I can't say I'm completely immune to the desire to have some visible lats.

On a side note. I'm so glad to have found this gym. It's always fun to go in and know that it's full of a bunch of people ready to lift heavy stuff. Not to mention that it's fitted with a trainer whom doesn't receive any money from me past the gym membership fees that takes the time to address my questions. I'd gladly pay his trainer fees if I wasn't such an underpaid bastard.

16 September 2013

Squats | 45x5 | 135x5 | 165x5 | 205x5 | 245x5x3 (missed) |
Bench | 45x5 | 95x5 | 115x5 | 135x5 | 170x5x3 |
Deadlift | 135x5 | 185x5 | 225x5 | 265x1 |
Hammer Curls | 15x25 | 15x15 | 15x10 | Total: 50
Leg Raises | BWx15 | BWx10 | BWx5 | BWx5 | BWx5 | BWx5 | BWx5 | Total: 50

I missed both my Squats and Deadlifts today. I know I shouldn't have but I wasn't feeling too well, sort of run down a bit. I also tweaked my back a bit the day before while bending over to pick up a freaking SOCK so I'm sure that played into it a bit too. I'll double back Wednesday depending on how well I feel and get those reps. If not, it just might be deload time.

Trainer at the gym had me doing abs and those wonderful hammer curls that almost erase any trace of tendonitis in my left elbow.

I have another MMA/BJJ class to go to tomorrow. Hopefully my back will allow me to do the class. I will stuff my face full of food tonight and get at least 9 hours of sleep in tomorrow morning. Hopefully that will help recovery a bit.

18 September 2013

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Warm Ups 15 minutes: Jog, rolls, various crawls on the mat, abs
Technique 40 minutes: Drilled multiple methods of passing half guard.
Spar 10 minutes: Still getting my ass handed to me.

Didn't have too much discomfort with my back hurting. Surely had lots of discomfort with the tendonitis in both my arms now. The hammer curls work decent to get rid of the pain, but it seems it always comes back once used vigorously again.

2013-09-18

Squats | 135x10x5 |
Press | 45x3 | 135x1 | 85x5 | 100x5 | 115x5+1 |
Power Clean | 95x3 | 115x3 | 135x2 |
Hammer Curls | 15x50 |

Made the decision to move to 5/3/1 Wendler program. With tendonitis in both arms, back hurt, and a hurt gracilis (assumption) I agreed with my trainers logic of lifting heavy (for me) too many times throughout the week for a prolonged period of time as a bad thing. Above is what I did just to get something in. Trainer wanted to get a frame of reference of where I was with Press's & Power Cleans. Love them hammer curls. They just take my tendonitis away almost immediately.

Workout was hell, :lol: Much more volume than Starting Strength but just not as heavy. I had planned on a conditioning exercise but I was done after the superset of power cleans/ab rollouts. All in all, I was pleased. Will be nice to hit Press tomorrow with that amount of volume.
