« Reply #30 on: January 16, 2013, 06:03:03 PM »
Squat 167,5 lbs
3x8

Wide grip pullup BW. RI 25 sec between microsets.
3x 4x2 (Nailed them this time)

DB BP 60,6 lbs (Stretch att the bottom)
3x8

BPN Std press 77 lbs (too short RI the last set...)
2x10 1x7

Superset:
Bar curl 56 lbs (slow eccentric part +squeez at the top)
3x10

Cable donkeys 253,3 lbs
1x20 1x18 1x20

Will decrease RI on pullups next wednesday to 23 sec.
Tweaked my squatting technique back to my original form since
the "vastus medialis killer" almost pushed me into overtraining and my insertions started to hurt.
That went away almost instantly with the tweaking back. Calfs rule as usual. ;)

Knees a bit sore but I've started to stretch my quads and

Good workout, good squats, and good pullups!

Thanks Sergio! :D
The rubber band training has really payed off
+ It gives you the possibility to work with increased range of motion doing
wide grip pullups on the cambered bar even though your too weak to do
them for "real".
The band let you save power for the top part of the pullup.
I compare it to doing bench press with bands or chains.

Food log?
« Reply #34 on: January 20, 2013, 10:32:29 AM »
I've been thinking of logging my food intake...
One of the reasons being that some days my body feels like a monster (in a good way)
pumped, big and strong. Other days it just feels small and Clark Kentish.
I suspect that it has something whit what I eat and when?!

1x11
1x9
1x8

My quad insertions ached less then last week but I'm still gonna cut back one set on squats wednesday and friday
to give my insertions a bit of rest. + I will not go past 211 lbs until I can do 3x8 with perfect form.
Right now my 7, 8th rep is a bit wobbly in form especially on the last set. A PB in pullups again!!! ;D
