    So. Not. Powerlifting...

    I have a cold. I went in to the gym because I needed to drop the bulk of my RCs that I wasn't using off to some unsuspecting buyer. While I was there, I decided to do my intended session as sets of 3 at the same weight, because I don't feel like making myself worse by doing 5 sets of 8 or 4 sets of 6 of deadlifts. Lift looked like this: Squat Worked up to 350 by 3s. 350x3x5S Deadlift Worked up to Adam's weight of 285 because I couldn't be bothered to go heavier. 285x3x5S Done. Sidenote: All kinds of odd things happening in the gym this year. The owner saw a bands and a mat on the floor at like 3PM and put some sadface rant on Instagram about how disrespectful the gym populace is. Then he proceeded to just whine about coming in at 3PM and not being able to get in his workout! Egads! and be disrespectful back (note: he had employees there all day long, from 5AM to 3PM. Why didn't those guys handle business?). All sorts of signs have popped up in the gym and they all essentially end with "don't be LAZY". Just weird, petulant petty shit. One of the non-gym-affiliated trainers asked us to keep it down because a bar was making too much noise WHILE DOING BB ROWS. The same trainer came in today, made a stankface at the music that the owner's wife put on, and sent one of her trainees to whine about the music*. Oh, single-fucking ply toilet paper. WTF? Spend the extra $10 per month, please. Gym nirvana is much less idealistic these days... *- we whined earlier when some super-white alternative shit came on

    Omg. 5x? I train them maybe twice per week, of course I'm also a member of Team No-bis.

    I've decided to pretend the injury doesn't exist. It doesn't hurt my squat or deadlift. It hurts to lay down on the bench for benching, but not to bench. So fuck it. It's a chronic weird thing that I'm going to have to work around, so it doesn't make much sense to focus on it. Flexiril seems to keep the spasms at bay, but now I take it on demand as opposed to 3xdaily. I took some advil with my morning meds (before gym), and took some tylenol right now 'just in case'. My back doesn't feel bad at all, though I'm justifiably guarded... I'm working off a simple volume-based linear program that my twink worked up (thanks @Atlasnow). Week 1 Monday Squat 3x6 420 Deadlift 2x6 420 Deadstop Leg Press 3x10 270 GHR 3x8 (abs time permiting) Tuesday Bench 3x6 277 Barbell Row 3x6 225 DB Should Press 4x6 60 Pullup (weighted) 4x6 bw +25lbs Rolling Triceps/Bicep super set 45/35 Delt burnout Thursday Squat 5x8 340 Conventional Speed Deads 5x3 340 Single Leg Press 3x10 90 Reverse Hyper 3x10 (abs time permiting) Friday Spotto Press 4x8 235 DB Row 2x15 75 Z presses 2x20 35 Lat Pulldown w/band 4x10 150 Tricep Hell Pec Flies Made some on-the-fly adjustments due to equipment being used (we basically bailed on the accessories but for some ab wheel). Oh, and I did 3, 3, 3, 3, 8 for deads because I can. I expect my legs will feel like shit later and I'll have some volume-related aches and pains (left ankle, both knees, shoulders, etc.). We'll see if my thoracic pain comes to life. If it does, I will just go find an old folks home.

    It's an interval workout that consists of me throwing an 80 sandbag over my shoulder as fast as I can for 30 seconds, resting for 60 seconds and repeating 5x. Not only is it so much more engaging that anything on a bike or treadmill, it is a killer ab/core workout (actually makes my abs sore) and I also think it has added a pop to my biceps that I was not getting from any other exercise.
