He tellin’ me, “Don’t tuck me.”
Wt: 172.2 remarkable i went out to dinner last night ate a 18 oz ribeye and about a loaf of bread and a yam. Also split a “chocolate lava cake” with Karena and drilled a hole in the dam so that I got more of the lava. Like a dishonest farmer making his own irrigation ditch.
Squat: 45×4, 135×3, 225×2, 315,335,355,375nb/ns,395,405,415,425×1
Bench: 45x8p, 135×4, 225×3, 315,335,355×1
if last time i got it 0.25 up this time would be 0.30. I want to be #18 in the world so bad.
Sumo DL: 135×3, +monster mini 135×2, 225, 245,255,265,275x1
a secret to sumo deadlifting with bands is to be 5’5″ 3/4 and take a stance that’s so wide that there is no band tension at the top because your ROM is only 4 inches. a caveat is that i went a little crazy and my foot slipped and i almost blew my groin on my last set. I should deadlift in cleats.
BB Curl 45×10
idk i do bodybuilding stuff and fuck around at the end sometimes i don’t log it
I’m kind of souring on the Mendes thing. Next meet is looking to be in December maybe.
Cons: I don’t like training twice a day; in fact i did not do it today or Tuesday. I’d rather work out for 2.5 hours once a day. I would like to do different rep ranges and more variety and volume for squats ala C&P. I still have not squatted 445. I made gains with my bench but I might be stuck & need volume.
Pros: I’ve only done it for like two weeks (tbf i have been doing something similar for 2 years). I don’t like being a program jumper although see previous parenthetical comment. I benched a PR. I like how it gives structure/restriction to the Bulgarian method. My average daily max is going up, it’s kind of too early to tell, but a quick look back shows that instead of hitting 405-425 last week, this week i’m more often hitting 425-435.
What do you think? Weigh in in the comments. Actually after typing the last sentence of the last paragraph i think it would make sense to stick with it for at least one more week, just doing the PM sessions. You can still voice your opinions.
