Training Log: Entry 2386
BUILDING THE MONOLITH WORKOUT 3
Buffalo Bar Squats
Axle Continental and Press Away
Weighted NG chins 85lbs
Band pull aparts
Farmers handle shrugs 115
Notes: Rather than do notes after everything, let me just explain how this all worked out.
Did a giant set to start of Squat-chin-press. No warm-ups for chins, so did the worksets in between the warm-ups for squats and presses. Once I ran out of chins, I transitioned to band pull aparts, so it went Squat-pull apart-press. Once I hit 5x360 on squats, I saved 20x180 for the end of the workout so transitioned to shrug-pull-apart-press. When I ran out of pull aparts, it just went shrug-press as a supersert. Once I was done with everything else, I did the 20x180.
The widowmaker definitely wasn't the hardest thing I've ever done, but I made it as challenging as I could by ensuring I was lockout out every rep. Original gameplan was to only continental around 5 sets of the presses, but I had enough in me to do the whole thing. I think this was the right weight for 1s week rather than 3s, so I may repeat during week 3 or only go up 5lbs and adjust TM from there.
Got the whole thing done in just about 50 minutes. I'll upload video later.
General notes: Woke up at 195.4. Fascinating how much food I can add and still not move up much. Think it's a sign to how much I'm burning. Gonna keep slowly ramping up the intake.
EDIT: Here is video of day 2 and 3
