So overhead pressing is fine, but deadlifting almost makes me pass out or throw up. There has been a noticeable drop off in my performance so I have changed a number of things with my training already, including several weeks off and over-recovery. I basically need something unchallenging (hence the bodypart split) that will keep me active and retain some level of strength and muscle while I go through this phase.

    Too bad to hear that tim. Have the docs detected what the problem is already? I hope everything goes well.
    I'd say just turn down the intensity to a comfortable level and that's it. Keeping active will do you good imo.

    Good luck tim.

    That is entirely possible. I'm pretty sure Skippy gave it to both of us.

    Partly. I'm on some stuff now that helps, but not 100%. Thyroid normal, hormones normal (literally smack bang middle of normal range), no infections (white cell count normal), nothing to really account for it. Considering how much the stuff affected me intially this may just be a side effect (low blood pressure and poor sleep thus less energy and dizzy with exertion) and in which case I'll have to live with the side effect to deal with what I've fixed.

    I'm guessing that taking it easy for awhile will give me a change of pace and allow me to adjust. Then I should be able to come back to a real program and hit it hard.

    Thanks Jono.

    I've plunged into the shady world of bodypart splits again for the first time in 8 years. Have to say I feel great after today's leg workout. Low blood pressure only caused an issue during my warmup.

    Front squat
    20kg x5
    60kg x5
    80kg x5
    100kg x5
    120kg x1

    Back squat
    120kg x5
    130kg x5
    140kg x3
    150kg x3

    Standing calf raises
    140kg x12
    150kg x10

    GM
    60kg x10
    60kg x10
    80kg x10
    80kg x10

    SL calf raise
    32kg x10
    32kg x10

    SL hammy curl
    20kg x15
    20kg x15

    The program will look something like this:

    Legs
    Front squats 4-5 sets
    Back squats 4-5 sets
    GM 4-5 sets
    SL hammy curls 2-3 sets
    Standing calf raises 2-3 sets
    SL calf raises 2-3 sets

    Chest
    Bench press 4-5 sets
    DB Incline press 4-5 sets
    Pushups 2-3 sets

    Back
    Pullups/Chinups 4-5 sets
    Deadlifts 4-5 sets
    DB rows 2-3 sets

    Shoulders and arms
    Standing OHP 4-5 sets
    DB lateral raise 2-3 sets
    BB bicep curl 4-5 sets
    DB incline curl 2-3 sets
    ? Close grip floor press 4-5 sets
    ? Band extensions 2-3 sets

    The arms day I'm just not sure about considering the elbow trouble I get from most extension based exercises. However I don't want to overdo the "pressing" movements by adding dips or a press. Any suggestions (bearing in mind my home equipment)?

    First bodypart split session looks awesome man! split looks good, just take it easy with arms the first couple of weeks, just for the pump, then increase kg as it goes better!

    ^^ Why Jono? I haven't done an arms only day in years, I'm not sure what you are driving at.

    Today's session, and yesterday's for that matter, felt refreshing. I haven't felt refreshed after a session since the begining of the year (from my patchy memory). Feels good to come away with a workout and energy.

    Bench
    60kg x5
    80kg x5
    90kg x5
    100kg x5
    110kg x5
    120kg x3
    115kg x5

    DB incline bench
    32kg x10
    32kg x10
    32kg x8

    Pushups
    BW x12
    BW x12 - WTF!?!? Normally I'd get 20 with a 20kg plate on my back!

    Pickle: I'm trying to imitate the Fratious benchious brous native to the commercial gyms across the world. Apparently they have swole chests and I'd like my chest to be swole too.

    PV: My bench is not as good as I'd like. But this session felt better than most in a long time.

    Back session today. Pullups felt surprisingly easy.

    Deadlifts
    60kg x5
    100kg x5
    140kg x5
    160kg x5
    170kg x4
    180kg x2
    190kg x1 - had a second one but had to drop it due to my blood pressure problem. Was literally about to blackout. I'm guessing that singles would be no problem, just that repeated bout without a break to get the heart under control.

    Pullups
    BW x5
    10kg x5
    20kg x5
    30kg x5
    20kg x5
    BW x5

    Thick bar Db rows
    50kg x15
    50kg x15

    Looking forward to shoulders and arms tomorrow.

    Great Deads. What type of blood pressure problems do you have? Sounds like that could be dangerous when you're lifting heavy.


    slept with faith and found a corpse in my arms on awakening; I drank and danced all night with doubt and found her a virgin in the morning.

    Thanks guys. The blood pressure problem is a side effect of some drugs I'm taking for another health problem. It is one of the noted side effects and I just have to monitor things and know when to stop. That is the reason for the change in my programyng and why I just dropped the deadlift rather than trying to keep going. The first rep was dead easy, but the second I got to the knees and just felt the darkness creeping in around my head and let go. I'm guessing the single reps will continue to be fine as long as it isn't a max effort. I think with the new program this will only be an issue on deadlifts and squats (although squats weren't an issue this week), although I'll have to see how the C&J fares.
