Sleep-deprived training, not fun.
Lol you're telling me!
5/3/1 Squat Week 3
Last weeks problems sorted I felt really strong, a little tired, but strong. The last rep at 165kg was a rough rep but I think I nailed it. Form was solid despite no belt still.
Tried to do a poncy MP session, got more than the required reps but not enough lol Had no energy after the squats. However I'm quite happy with the squats :)
Solid squatting there Skeptic!
About the lack of sleep, i know what I'm (we're) talking about, I first started lifting as a therapy for lack of sleep. I've had my ups and downs since then and I sleep much more regularly now (not a lot, but i don't have many blank nights anymore), but anytime I don't sleep/sleep too short my strength is just gone.
Keep at it!
Hehe, I never have any actual troubles sleeping, never had insomnia... its that I've got a job at a servo (gotta do what you gotta do) and I've worked a couple graveyard shifts (midnight - 8am) and they've thrown my sleeping patterns completely out of whack! haha
I'm probably the heaviest sleeper you're likely to meet!
p.s good sessions, have you done orrmayer anything other then deads? i suppose for bench you would just jump 2.5kgs per session? Looking strong, you must be huuyyyyuuugeeee.
p.s what servo are u working ill get late night fuel off u. (ill also buy porn and ask if i can use your restroom)

5/3/1 Cycle 2 SQUAT
I think I could have done 1 maybe 2 more, but I had a killer headache and I nearly spewed. New belt used today, lever belt from Underground Elite... Its nice having a belt thats comfortable and not constricting.
Front Squats/DB Shrugs I buried each squat rep
5@100kg ---> 10@50kg
5@100kg ---> 10@50kg
5@100kg ---> 12@50kg
Gonna get to 5 sets of this, then just up the reps for awhile... felt too sick to get all 5.
I've decided I'm gonna do shrugs as a squat assist exercise and DB rows as a Deadlift assist exercise. Gonna do pullups on the bench/MP days... 4days of back work per week, thoughts?
I felt really strong through the squats, 140kg felt easy as piss, 150kg wasn't too bad either.
