So my first post on this log was the 26th January 2013, just over three year's ago. The amount of progress since then has been phenomenal. I fundamentally look and feel different than I did back then. The last three or four months represent the first real phase during that period where I've gone backwards. I've been training - just training two or three times a week as opposed to the four or five times that had become commonplace. On top of that a lot has been going on in terms of life stuff, and there's been a lot of booze and stress without near the amount of sleep to compensate. I tested Press, Squat and Deadlift over the past week and the results were humbling:

Squat: 160kgs
Press: 80kgs
Deadlift: 220kgs

So my strength has dropped off some. I'm not massively concerned as I haven't had the training volume or focus necessary to maintain or progress. It's time to get back to the drawing board. I have nothing dramatic planned. Just going to do a few weeks of linear progression on the lifts and try to get the training volume back up to a consistent four sessions a week of decent quality. I've been playing a competitive game of indoor football every Tuesday night of a reasonable pace and quality and that will continue for the next couple of months. It's very enjoyable, but carries a much bigger recovery implication than a regular training session but that's okay for now.

Tuesday 2nd February, 19:00

Warmup

Stretching
Scap Band Work
Foam rolling

Strength

Had done "Karen" on Saturday (150 Wall Balls) so my legs were in ribbons going into this.

Quote:
Strict Press
8 @ Bar
5 @ 40kgs
3 @ 50kgs
3 x 5 @ 60kgs

Decent bar speed through the working sets

Quote:
HBBS
8 @ Bar
5 @ 60kgs
3 @ 80kgs
3 @ 100kgs
3 x 5 @ 110kgs

I've lost my way with squatting over the past few months. These were slightly off and much tougher than they ought to have been (leg fatigue accepted).

Quote:
Pull Ups
5 x 5

Quote:
Hammer Curls
4 x 8 @ 15kgs Dumbells

Conditioning

Quote:
Hour of Indoor Football
Ended up on a team of four versus five for 40 mins of this which made it all the tougher. Legs in ribbons today.

Cheers Mellor.

I don't know to be perfectly honest! This was last year:

Deadlift: 250kgs 242.5kgs - was a very ambitious target and I can't really be unhappy to put over 15kgs on in a year
Bench: 125kgs 120kgs - nope! My technique on the bench is terrible and I'd probably need specific coaching with a Powerlifting coach to get it right
Press: 90kgs 88kgs - and this heartbreaking miss at 90kgs
500m Row: 1:18.9 Nah - never even attempted it

I'm not going to set 2k or 5k row goals. I think power and strength will be the focus for another year. If I achieve all of the above then next year it might be time to look into some bodyweight / bf % goals during 2016. Slowly, slowly we'll get there.
1 / 5, but very solid years on Press and Deadlift too. I also push pressed 105kgs at the end of last year which was an 18kgs improvement mostly due to technique progression.

To be honest right now I don't really think my goals are anything other than getting back in the groove and recovering a bit of strength loss. If we end up the year back at peak strength levels and back training consistently that would be just fine.

105kg push press. That's class.
I've a feeling my push press technique is terrible. Got a really tough 76.5kg push press in November. I think I find thrusters easier, not sure if that right.
Press strength feels like it falls off quicker than other lifts

Saturday 6th February, 10:00

Not a great week as it turned out, struggling with a dose and running a slight temperature all week so the aim today was to simply get something done.

Mobility

Scap Band Work
Scap Slides
Scap Push Ups

Strength

Quote:
Bench Press
8 @ Bar
5 @ 60kgs
3 @ 80kgs
5, 5, 4 @ 90kgs

Ah heyor! Just have to accept this new world of being weak for a little while.

Quote:
Deadlift
5 @ 60kgs
5 @ 100kgs
3 @ 140kgs
1 @ 160kgs
5 @ 180kgs



Actually happy enough with the bar speed there.

Lloyd, any plans for doing the open this year?
I'm thinking about doing the workouts once a week. If there was a few of us (4+), a CF Open thread might be worth it.

Feel free to amend as needed.
