Training Log: Entry 2196
(7) Axle Mat Pull
3x576 (rest pause, dead stop)
10x426 (touch and go)
Notes: Bringing back the rest pause, because I know it works. Getting more volume on those dead stop sets should pay off well. Trained first thing in the morning, so these were pretty heavy weights.
GHR sit ups
Buffalo bar squats
Notes: Camera cut out right before the set of 1x320. It's a long video, I don't really expect people to watch the whole thing, but I wanted to provide an idea of the short-ish rest periods I take on this workout. Also, first time squatting over 400lbs on a "straight" barbell since surgery, let alone first thing in the morning after mat pulls and ab work. I'm trying not to be stupid as I recover, but the knee is playing very nice and I'm getting more and more confident pushing it.
Also, this workout is absolutely terrible and everyone should do it. Go for about 1-2 reps below your max on the first heavy set, then 15 deep breaths between each "set" after that. Do half as many reps until you hit 1, then strip per side and hit double as many as your first set. Do half as many until you hit 1, strip a plate per side and hit the total amount of reps you did for the second series. Then fall on your ass and dry heave obscenities while you feebly attempt to take off your squat shoes and knee sleeves.
General notes: Woke up at 195.8. No real "cheat meal" this week; just playing things a little looser as the move approaches. Kitchen will soon be packed and I'll be eating out more.
