Training 11/12/16



Trap bar deadlift : 260kg x 4 reps ( 4 sets )

GHR`s : 5 sets x 12 reps

Toes to bar leg raise : 5 sets x 12 reps

Video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmT_tm1WpA0&feature=youtu.be

...........

Altho my training has always been basic and heavy I am presently trying to simplify further. Going forward I am looking to keep my simplistic upper / lower split BUT utilising only 3 exercises per workout ( 1 main lift & 2 supplementary exercises ) and just work them hard. I used super abbreviated training previously ( some years back ) but became fixated with ever decreasing volume and frequency which was a mistake I don't intend making again . This time I will keep volume ( sets per exercise )  high and utilise density over intensity .
Diet is unchanged ( high fat , moderate protein , lower carb ) .

2015 - 2016

Looking awesome mate and liking the simplicity of the workout! I like to do the same and focus on just a handful of major lifts with higher volume, will be interested to see your results from this

Cheers mate , I`ll give it a 12 week period in order to concentrate my efforts on the main lifts ( kinda an off-season approach without there ever having been an `on -season` or comp LOL  )  then start to reintroduce more targeted training in the spring time.

16 reps with 260kg is serious volume, mate. Everything looks to be progressing really well.

Your back is looking dense, too. Smiley

would doubled over bands not work as well as the duck tape - but quicker and less messy?

awesome pulling. tempting me to get a trap bar and some more plates!

Thanks mate , I am ordering a couple more 50kg discs which will solve much of the problem , and a friend has offered to extend the trap bar sleeves ( altho I`d prefer to persevere with more 50kg plates first ).

 Training going very well presently , still pursuing progression in the main lifts ( for me ) and thereafter using an ancillary movement for fatigue of the targeted musculature.

 Yesterdays training was :

Front squat : 8 working sets x 4 reps
Gironda Heels raised hack slide : 5 sets x 12 reps
Donkey calf raise : 5 sets x 25 reps

Video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wZLKYbJdN8

Felt really focused and today the quads have that desired tenderness. 

Food was :

B`fast : 4 eggs in butter , 1 toast & coffee.

Evening meal : fillet steak , broccoli , asparagus , wine.

Supper : Cheese , cracker.

( not a lot , I know. BUT this is just how I eat and feel satiated )

Bodyweight is currently 74kg .
I have a further few weeks on this training cycle then my intent is to move to more targeted muscle training .

Finished another short 6 week strength cycle culminating in 3 sets x 3 reps and 270kg on the trap bar , and 150kg for similar on the front squat .
This is the 3rd time I have intentionally performed the same 6 week cycle with same weights ( sets , reps & resistance ) on the main lifts and as a result have become more efficient and confident in their performance. I COULD have done more weight , but THAT feeling of being capable of more at the end of a cycle and realising a more efficient performance in what you have done is where true adaptation has been had over that training period. 
Whilst I chose not to increase my main lifts I DID choose to increase the reps on my assistance work moving to 5 sets x 12 reps on most exercises ( have to push something forward whilst maintaining my main lifts ) , this is/was a precursor for my next training cycle where I am toying with a more targeted muscle training approach .

Things are looking up again.
