Blocky goes on an ol' fashioned Dungeon Crawl

Blocky's Dungeon Crawl

Week 2, Day 1 & 2:

 

Blocky, still battered from his ordeal with the Ogre, has now decended 8 levels into the dungeon. As he is exploring the eight level, he rounds a corner and finds a weird tunnel leading downwards. Sword drawn, Blocky explores the tunnel... onwards he travels until he reaches the end of the twisting passage. Unexpectedly he arrives in a large cavern which is carpeted in grass and contains many trees... Blocky remembers hearing of this odd place... He has found the fabled 'Lair of Beasts'...

 

Skipped squatting on Monday so I could have an extra day to recover... but had to give it a go today... I just don't like missing gym days.

 

Lifting:

Heavy Stuff

Comp Squats: managed a set of 3 at 100kg without doing any damage but felt like I was pushing my luck.

 

Assistance Work

SSB box squats: 4 x 8 at 85kg

Straight leg DLs: 4 x 8 at 85kg

Leg Press: 3 x 12 at 120kg

Back extensions: 3 x 12

 

Food and Supps:

Missed my supplements on Monday... remembered today.

 

Everything else:

I'm going to reqrite my program tomorrow and switch my squats to box squats while my adductor heals... the box squats don't seem to aggravate it like comp squats.

Blocky's Dungeon Crawl

Week 2, Day 3:

 

After quaffing a random potion found on one his many enemies, Blocky's leg is nearly healed and he is ready to go futher... After diving another 4 levels of the Lair, he comes across a hatch in the floor guarded by many Naga (half man, half snake). After a gruelling but short battle, Blocky lifts the hatch and decends into the snake pit...

 

Good news... the squatting and assorted stuff I did yesterday didn't re-injure my adductor... if anything it feels better. I'll do box squats instead of comp squats on friday and then hopefully by monday, I can restart this program...

 

Lifting:

Heavy Stuff

Bench vs 10kg chain: singles at 105, 110, 115 and 117.5kg + chains (equal PR... but there was zero chance of bumping it up for a new PR),

Comp Bench: 92.5kg x 3, 3, 3, 3, 3

 

Assistance Work

Closegrip Bench vs 10kg chain: 75kg x 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, supersetted with

Pendlay Row: 75kg x 6, 6, 6, 6, 6

 

DB bench pressing, TRX rows, tricep pushdowns

 

Food and Supps:

Doing just fine today.

 

Everything else:

Ugh.. it's been a long and overly warm day. I started at 5am, trained at 12 and had to drink 2 litres so I wouldn't fall down, and then back to work until 8pm... basically, Wednesday can eat a bag of dicks....

Following along dude. I like the narrative - it's good but also short enough that I can keep up with it (insofar as I can keep up with any thread!). Glad the adductor's healing up quickly.

Blocky's Dungeon Crawl

Week 3, Day 1 & 2:

 

Blocky has fought his way through 4 levels of the Slime Pits, hacking and slashing his way through giant floating eyeballs and weird lumps of goo that spit acid. Entering the 4th level he is met with a large open area, filled with mindless critters, with a central complex of rooms with glass walls... Through the glass, he can see a lot of loot lying aorund, however he can also see a truly massive gelantinous blob of goo. It is the fabled Royal Jelly, powerful minion of the Slime God Jiyva... This will be a tough battle...

 

Lifting:

Heavy Stuff

Deadlift vs 10kg chains: Top single at 180kg + chains.

Comp Deadlift: 5 at 150kg

Box Squats: Another 3 x 5 at 120kg, slightly lower box this time.

 

Assistance Work

Straight Leg DL: 4 x 8 at 90kg, supersetted with

Leg Press: 4 x 12 at 120 - 140kg

Back extensions x lots

 

Food and Supps:

Food has been good, but I've missed a lot of supplement days... so no perfect challenge for me...

 

Everything else:

Everything is a bit meh at the moment...

Do you like the straight leg deadlift?  I've never tried it. 

 

 

 

It's a yes AND no... I haven't found a better way to put some mass on my hamstrings BUT if I load it up too much then the demands on my lower back get too much. So it tends to be a moderate weight, high rep kinda deal.

 

I also make sure that each rep is from a dead stop from the floor or blocks (I usually do it off blocks - if I do straight legs from the ground my head is below my hip level because long legs - I try and aim for back to be paralell to the floor ) - if I do a RDL type deal (ie: lowering the weight but not quite touching before doing the next rep) then my lower back wears out even quicker.

Blocky's Dungeon Crawl

Week 3, Day 3:

 

The battle of Blocky versus the Royal Jelly raged for close to an hour. With every successful hit landed by Blocky, the Royal Jelly summoned more and more of it's hideous blobby allies. With his health running out, Blocky takes a chance and starts reading random scrolls from his pack. The first scroll looks promising, Blocky reads it aloud and feels something is happening... however the only result is a bunch of butterflies appear. Pulling another scroll, Blocky recites the meaningless gibberish... and then Kaboom! Every single minion, the Royal Jelly and unfortunately Blocky explode into flames. As the flames die down, all that can be seen is mangled bits of blobs and a badly scorched Blocky, protected from the flames by virtue of being made from stone...

I was actually worried for a second there that you blew yourself up. So you definitely have a talent for the story telling. Too bad about the butterflies, not very helpful, eh?
