tricep stuff and done
Feel good about this. Felt like **** today probably still a little hung over from buddies birthday saturday. I almost skipped bowling league tonight but went there and to the gym after and still had a good lift
Hey how are you liking 5/3/1? I've been looking into it a bit and am thinking of giving it a shot. Which accessory are you doing? I'm thinking Big But Boring
Did you buy the book or just going off things you see online?
Wow weird timing, I just randomly posted too.
Honestly my opinion on 5/3/1 is that it's not the most ideal program for strength gain BUT it is ideal in terms of flexibility and time spent.
You can have the busiest schedule in the world and still hit just your 5/3/1 portion for the day and be in and out in 15 minutes if need be.
I'm doing accessory work targeting certain weaknesses and also accessory work for the main lifts.
I bought the book and recommend doing so if you are going to do the program.
I am going to continue to run it until I exhaust gains which should be for several more months as I started really light. After that I am 100% doing a program that has me squat at least 2x per week just not sure which one yet. I am a big proponent of following through on any routine and think bouncing around too much hinders progress so even though I don't think this is ideal for strength I do still like it and will still see it through.
missed my workout yesterday because not feeling great. I'm hoping to go today as even tho my throat is still sore I don't feel all that sick. I think it would be a ****** workout but would still like to get it in so I can hit my squat day tomorrow
315x6 (1+) - honestly had 2-3 more here but strangely enough my pec was screaming. was still sore from doing chest literally less than 12 hours before and it showed - lesson learned.
5 sets of 10 @ 135 - real slow and controlled
5 sets of 10 @ 120
Cable crunches 3x10 and that was it.
Off day tomorrow then new cycle starts with OHP on Monday.
