  1. Past hour
  2. Feeling jacked after the high pull routine? Thib talks about doing routines where he'll really hammer one lift (like do it every day for weeks) while maintaining everything else. I really like the idea of that.
  3. Today

    Yes. Great analogy.
  5. My dogs flee my room if my CPAP isn't on/working.
  6. Agreed. As I noted above....without the CPAP my hunting buddy's snoring was nearly intolerable.
  7. Imagine having to carry his corpse out of the woods!

    Agreed - but like you, I also think being open to switch it up is part of the best meta-routine. Stickiness and adaptivity - balancing viscosity and elasticity?

    As I get older, I look at routines like diets. The best ones are the ones you can stick to.
  10. Last official workout of this routine: snatch grip high pull medium day 135*2, 155*2, 175*2, 195*2, 215*2, 235*1, 255*1 Bench press(not pin press) 225*3, 245*3, 265*3, 285*3, 305*3, 325*3 335*1, 345*1, and I just missed 355 just got stuck 310 for 3 sets of 3 reps Definitely not bad haha. So this was 1.5 times my bodyweight. I was 233 at the gym with everything clothes and Chucks on. Not bad when you consider where my bench was at previously. I would say a little over 300 weighting 240. I am tempted to do a deadlift and bench focused phase/routine next. Really want to push for 600 on deadlifts and I know 365 is close. Would just be a 3 maybe 4 week block. I think I really respond well to these short intense phases. Just to show how bad I am at dating I might have unintentionally set up a date(maybe). Been messaging with a girl I went to school with for about 3 weeks. We been talking about food(I like food haha). Looks like we might meet up this week for Korean. If this is a date I think I have found my first date place haha. I took Emily and Bri there for first dates. It is a hole in the wall place. Tucked away on the less desirable(according to some) side of town. Can't even call it a mom and pop shop because it is basically a 1 woman show with her daughters helping waitress.
  11. Yesterday
  12. Why not? They are nearly silent with one or two exceptions...if you are a mouthbreather, the air will make noise as it forcefully ejects itself, if the mask becomes displaced from your face it will make a rushing air noise, or if the humidifier loses its seal it will make a similar noise (though you'd know as soon as it turned on). Fairly certain that the mild amount of noise it makes would be better than my snoring or my death, or me without sleep...

    I abandoned split routines about 12 years ago. Granted, my 'programming' is pretty loose, but I do preferentially focus my efforts on a given movement week-to-week (push/pull/squat/hinge/carry).
  14. Perhaps...although your fellow campers might not be so amenable... That said, I went on a hunting trip once with a guy who had apnea who did not bring his CPAP machine and his snoring was deafening so maybe the noise of the machine would be preferable. If I didn't have ear plugs with me it would have been impossible to sleep in a tent with him.
  15. Traveling isn't difficult at all...it's an allowed extra piece of carry-on luggage. Camping has a solution as well: A Lion battery, a DC-DC converter, and disabling the humidifier can get several days of use before requiring a charge. I personally think the risks of the relatively unregulated medical device marketplace far outweigh the benefits of the PITA of a CPAP, but YMMV. @STENDEC it's only hell for a few months. Then it's just a part of bedtime. Just another tool...

    For sure. There is something to be said for organizing the workout in a way that makes it more likely that you're going to work out and enjoy it.

    I've waffled back and forth between push/pull and bodypart splits....I think you are probably right Kim...but bodyparts fit nicely into a 4-5 workout week

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of body part splits. Movement planes make sense to me. The problem with body part splits is that some muscles recovey faster than others. So if you go a week, one muscle may have supercompensated in like 3 days and may already be returning to baseline. I mean, ok, yeah, people have obviously gotten big and strong on body part splits, so I'm kind of splitting hairs here, but it's just nice to do something else if you don't feel like destroying your chest on Monday with everyone else.
  19. I think I have become anti body part split if natty. I have definitely seen much better results training the way I am now without taking anything. I would get great results doing body part splits when I was on stuff.
  20. Ya I am the same way. Which is why I usually lift 2 hours post eating. Which was the case here but the food just was sitting on my stomach. I think it might have partially due to my carbs the night before. Still processing all that poop haha. Appreciate it. Yes nipple height is the goal.
  21. I do. I'm not sure exactly why I decided to do it but it seemed like an easy way to add some extra resistance to stuff like step ups and OH squats that wouldn't mess with my balance and then it was just easier to wear it for the whole workout. I can't necessarily attribute it to the vest but my legs are about as big, strong and well defined as they have ever been.
  22. You and your goddamn ego bullshit 😜 So I haven't posted a work update on awhile. This is because there's been no update lol. Things took a long time to process (background check, drug test, physical, personal note from my doctor about my health..). I'm finally starting my first shift on Monday. So, my perfect little lifting schedule is over.
  23. Do you do the whole workout with a weighted vest on? If so, anything you've been noticing from using it?
  24. I have a really hard time working out on a stomach full of food. Nice workout! How high are you pulling the bar to? Nipple height?
  25. Just gonna say this here: beating the shit out of yourself by demeaning your lifts is also ego.
  26. Thanks, I'm really trying to take my ego out of it. It took a long time for me to get over that shit but it's not like using my ego weights is impressive anyways. I really need my weights to stack over my COG better at this point to be able to progress past 450. Else, I'll be the next accidental-kang-squat guy with my videos on fail compilations. Today went well but we did run out of time due to the shorter hours at this facility. I had to make due with stuff at home but the important stuff was done at the gym. CAT Bench 45X10 95X5X2 135X5X2 185X3X2 225X3X2 225X3 added reverse green bands 275X3X2 Bar was flying today Pullup BW+60X5X3 Easy. Added 5lbs to last block and it was nothing. Last month and its deload went just perfectly. Wide Grip Bench (really wide) 175X8X3 Chest Supported Row 130X8X3 I just...fucking love how this specific CSR feels on my teres. Hopefully I can build me up some semblance of wings. DB OHP (at home, in place of a regular press) 3sets, high reps I only have 15lb DBs so I just repped the shit out DB Reverse Curl (was supposed to be BB Reverse Curl) 15X10X3 3D Pullapart Long Red X20 Fatigue was low again, giving myself room so to say. I am impressed with how strong I feel. Today was so easy that I don't even feel like I trained. I think Kim has finally figured out the best way to guage my fatigue and loading/unloading patterns. I won't be lifting super heavy, intensity wise, for several months, but I am really excited to see how peaking will go with things figured out a little more each month.
