The way my current program is structured is one day each week of lower push (squats), lower pull (deadlifts), horizontal push/pull (bench and rows), vertical push/pull (OHP and pullups). Each of the 3 powerlifting lifts get rotated through each week between speed, reps, and max. So for example... this week I have speed deadlifts, max bench press, and rep squats. Next week rep deadlifts, speed bench press, and max squat. and so on and so forth. With an occasional torture deload week thrown in there every now and again.

 

I'll try to structure it as sets x reps x weight (lbs) unless noted otherwise.

e will mean each (each leg/arm/dumbbell...)

 

Monday 2/16/2015 - Speed Deadlifts

Warmup

Front squats sets of 8: 45, 55, 65, 75, 75, 75

Deadlift: 10x3x125

Sumo deadlifts: 3x8x115

RDL: 3x8x85

Ab crunches with band resistance: 3x25

Stationary bike 20 minutes

Maybe, it depends when it is.  I always have a hard time coming up with actual goals which usually just keeps me in my battle log.

Whoo hoo!! :D I love this! I will have to make one soon. I plan to just keep updated my 6WC for now.

 

I DID MY FIRST STRENGTH STUFF YESTERDAY!!! :D I read through all the Strength Training 101 articles and some other ones, I had a friend come with me, and I DID MY FIRST ROUTINE (squats+overhead press+deadlift+a couple other things)!!! :D YAY!! I am using training bars (20lbs-30lbs) for now, though I did use the actually bar + 2x 5lbs weights on it for the dead lift! :D And 20lb dumbbells for those exercies. I'm going to go more into detail on my old 6WC thread after I write everything down in my notebook (another suggestion from the articles lol). I think I'm gonna make a battle log too as I learn, grow, and (basically) begin my STRENTH TRAINING WHOO!! xD ITS SO FUN!!!

 

I saw a difference in my body JUST FROM ONE DAY, I didn't OVER do it, and I ALREADY FEEL STRONGER WHOO!!! xD

Max Effort Bench Press

 

Warmup

Did a crap ton of warm up sets, worked my way up with doubles until 75, then did singles at 75 and up. Tried 90 2 times, first one my trainer literally used one finger to help me up, so CLOSE! He wants me to narrow my grip a little bit though because I guess I am flaring my elbows. So that way I can recruit more tricep strength. So it feels weird, but whatever.... Worked some more singles at 75 with narrower grip.

 

Dumbbell neutral grip bench: 5x8x20e

Dumbbell rows: 5x8ex20

Incline Bench Press: 5x8x45

Seated Cable Rows: 5x8x60

 

20 minutes treadmill walk at 6% incline.

 

Also, I have been crushing my nutrition all week. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Excuse me while in lurk in your battle log...

Lurking permitted. :D

 

Sets of 8 suck.  Well in honesty, anything above 6 makes me whine a bit. 

 

Great work here

 

Anything above sets of 5 is cardio.

Monday

3/2/2015   <--- oh my gosh it's already March

Max Deadlifts (work up to 95% 1RM)

 

Dynamic warmup

Deadlifts: 8x45, 5x95, 3x105, 3x115, 3x125, 3x135, 1x145, 1x155, 1x165,  <- belt on, 1x175, 1x180

     Felt like I used a little bit more back than hamstrings... should work on that. I think I may not have been as 'mobile' as I could have been. I skimped on the warmup a little.

Sumo Deadlifts: 5x3x145 These felt good. Like really good. Like sum deadlifts could be a thing from now on, good.

Hack Squat: 3x8x 20 <- because squat racks were full

Wednesday 3/4/15
Bench Press Reps and Rows

I don't have written down exactly what I did because my trainer deviated from the plan, but here is a brief summary:

Roughly 8 sets of 5 bench press, working on lowering the bar slow and controlled and not flaring my elbows
Close grip bench press 4 or 5 sets of 15 - really hammering those triceps

At some point around here I told my trainer 'I ain't no little bitch' I now regret that statement:

Hammer Strength High Rows - 4 sets of 12
What's that? Some more bench pressing? incline hammerstrength bench press - work up to 15 lbs each side and then do a freaking dropset.
Didn't crush your back enough with high rows? Let's do some more low rows.... how about another 4 sets of 12.
Triceps aren't falling off yet? Tricep bar pushdowns, approximately 80 sets of 1000 with... you guessed it, a dropset!!

Went to do my PLP started to do a pushup and collapsed onto the mat. Had to do my pushups on my knees and use the big band for my chinups while some little high school shit was right next to me cranking them out with no bands. Sigh.
