spezzy lifts all the things!


Recommended Posts

okay, so since my challenges are moving more and more away from lifting, i've decided to just start a training log.

 

 

 

so, today!

 

Starting a new program that I put together that is a bit different from anything I've done before, and includes deadlifting more than once a week, and not working on a standard week. Some weeks I'll be training more often, some less, and it incorporates a deload in it that I think I need written out ahead or I won't take it. 

 

So, today:

Bench Press - 165 for 10 sets of 2 @ 8

Beltless DO Deadlift - 245x2, 275x2, 305x2x2, 285x2x2, 275x2, 245x2

PBar Dips - 3x10

Strict MU - 3x2 - https://www.instagram.com/p/BAxshbqRoNa/

Bulgarian Split Squats - 3x10

Ab wheel 3x8

Your strength is pretty impressive. When I do bench, I think I do the bar. :) Keep on rockin, fellow Hoosier.

What sort of basis do you work on for your own programming? I'm always interested in people's schools of thought on that.

thank you! one of my first challenges here at NF was actually to be brave enough to even TRY benching the bar. With time and patience, the strength will come :)

You know, I've tried a ton of different methodologies and things and I've really been enjoying working off RPE for the last year. I'm slowly getting better at it (it takes time doing it to really understand what an 8 is or what a 10 is on your own body - I thought it'd be easy but it took time.  It's helped me remove my ego from the situation and lift what I should be lifting, not what I want to be lifting.

 

But now it's basically DL (one heavy, one light variation) 2x a week

Squat 3-4x a week (2x comp, 2x variations)

Bench 2-3x a week (2x comp, plus variations - this depends on my shoulder which bothers me)

OHP 1-2x a week

+accessories

 

So I have slots in my schedule and basically plug them in. I like doing certain movements together, like for example I really like to bench and deadlift the same day, but not the day before heavy squats, because all three are so lats intensive that one has to suffer. So kind of from experience on what my body likes, but also going by "muscle groups" you could say.  Obviously as you know all powerlifting movements use all of your muscles so there's no easy way to split ;)

 

Sometimes my schedule doesn't allow 3 hours in the gym, which is what I need to get everything done, so sometimes I need to split one workout in to 2 days, which is why the 5 days some weeks.  The slightly longer week allows me to fit in 2 deadlift days without destroying my body (even if one is a variation, it's just been too much on me in the past)

 

Before I had a lot of struggle making myself do things I didn't like, but over the last few months I've really worked on removing ego and just doing things better. I think (and hope!) my form is significantly better than it was at Nationals, though I'm lifting significantly less right now, consistently at around 75-85%. I'd like to hang out here another training cycle to really keep dialing in form.

 

The problem is, and one reason why I do a lot of my own programming, is that I really enjoy a lot of gymnastics movements, so I need to program around those too, and no typical powerlifting program has them in it :) So I'll typically add muscleups on a DL / Bench day, Handstand work on a OHP day, L sits when doing abs - etc. to try to use them as an accessory to the main lift. 

 

My boyfriend is brilliant when it comes to these things, so he's been a huge help even just running ideas off of. And sometimes at the gym I'll go to do something and he gives me a face and I know it's a bad idea and I should stop. He helps keep me in check, and that's been a huge in keeping me not doing anything too dumb :)

I'm just here to bask in your glory.. You were my inspiration to finally buy a barbell set.. I'm actually starting to put weights on the bar now! :) Good luck lifting all the things!(Not that you need it of course!)

I may not be the strongest, the fastest, or the bravest. But I'll be damned if I'm not trying my hardest.

Yeah, I've considered myself recovered for a little while now - just really decided to take a step back and work on fixing my body to make the best out of being I injured, which means a slower road back. But I'm hitting numbers volume wise I had never hit before my injury (including squat even though I'm doing high bar) so I'm pleased overall, even if I haven't hit any new 1rm PRs yet. :)
