Impressive. I'm truly impressed by your strength!
Finngasolin: thank you, thank you
I do my best=)
Lance: thanks as always mate! my grip is decent i guess. i do as many sets as possible with overhand grip without straps, then i use em when i feel the grip starts limiting me:)
Anabolicus: hehe, looking forward to see how many reps i can get with 187.5 kg next week!:D i dunno about other training schemes. im gonna stick this 5/3/1 template out until i stop progressing or just get really tired of it. it really is a long term program so i see no reason to change so soon. prolly gonna stay on for atleast another 6 months!
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Xiva: thanks buddy ye training ur grip is definetely an investment. not only does it help ur overall strenght. its also gonna improve ur forearms
Philo: i think so too:) thanks mate=)
ok. today was off from the weights. did some cardio though. first 10 minutes walking on the treadmill, then HIIT. 400 m sprints. 3 of em. rest between was walking at a pretty fast pace. was completely shot afterwards. after the final lap, i walked at an high incline for another 10 minutes. then did some cooldown and walking at highest incline for calves, before stretching out my calves, thighs and ancles.
tomorrow is bench day. looking forward to hitting that as i missed it last week. little worried about my strenght but we will see. until then guys
hehe, thing is i did a deload week on the bench before i got sick last week. so basically its been 3 weeks since the last time i benched heavy. im not worried ill have lost alot, but i might miss a rep or two. but time will tell. im gonna give it all i got. thanks for the support mate
thank you lance!
