    September 22, 2013 1:30AM - 2:45AM
    Eclipse Gym


    Deadlift (last training, missed at 255 x 3 )
    265 x 5
    255 x 10
    265 x 10 new rep PR

    Bench ( last training, missed at 135 x 2 )

    135 x 5
    135 x 4
    125 x 6
    105 x 12
    105 x 12

    Kroc Rows

    70's x 20 x 2
    80's x 12 x 2
    90's x 8 x 1

    Was experiencing the afterglow effects of cough syrup(dextromethorphan) high :yahoo: and decided to try and hit the weight I missed last DL/bench day, that day was just not really my day. I knew I could pull and push that amount but for some reason could not.. Achieved new PR's straight ahead. Pretty pretty happy I'm finally getting my pressing stronger. I learned that the bench press isn't like squats or DL's where you can add 10lbs into it every week and expect to hit it. Increments of 2.5 or so has such a huge difference. :sport:

    Masala Maker out!

    Eclipse Gym

    Decided to do all 5 compound lifts today.

    Conventional Deadlift:
    275lbs x 12 (New rep PR)
    315 x 1 (NEW PR)
    315 x 3( NEW PR)

    Sumo DL's
    225x 4
    I don't know how I got stronger by a huge amount in such a short time crazy stuff. Last week ago I couldn't lift 315 off the ground. All my lifts improved when I started rowing heavy. Worked for me.:sport:

    I won the Eclipse Gym 24/7 Primes Challenge on doing 315 on the Deadlift with proper form and a second on the lockout. Pretty stoked. First time I've ever won anything that has to do with physical performance. Excited to view the video they're gonna up of me and get my 315lbs Deadlift Club shirt :sport:

    100 x 1 (New PR)

    140 x 3 x 2 (NEW PR)
    125 x 7
    125 x 5
    120 x 8

    Assisted Dips 60lbs

    KB rows
    16kg to failure

    Kroc Rows
    90's x 12
    90's x 8

    so this is your 5/3/1 week (3rd week)?

    Great numbers! anong template ang gamit mo? Triumvirate?
  • Masala MakerMasala Maker Posts: 476B-Class
    Hey Master DSD!

    thanks man. I feel awesome about it! Yung template ko is yung boring but big most of the time + 1 more assistance exercise ( rows, c&j's cause I like doing them, power cleans etc.)

    Finafollow ko yung 5/3/1 ni Jim Wendler, sa percentages, using 90% of your max, training optimally instead of maximally etc. Sobrang nagustuhan ko kasi no BS. pero sablay lang ako ng sobra sa days. I'm always itching to train kaya hindi ko na gagawa yung proper spacing of workouts minsan rin naprapraning ako ginagawa ko lahat ng lifts in a day.

    so ganto ina aim ko sana gawin mostly:
    monday: cardio, bench/deadlift
    tue rest
    wed: loaded carries, squat/ohp
    thu rest

    Pero pag friday na at gusto ko na mag buhat ulit, diretso nako week 2 ng program 3x3, and so on hahaha. So far so good.

    Journey Update Oct 1:

    Hindi ko talaga nabantayan ang pagkain ko this last 3 weeks dahil sa girl problems haha. Stress eater e.
    Been eating packs of Annie's Hany bars straight at yung favorite kong bubble gum marshmallow ice cream ng big scoop.

    BW: 193 to 202lbs.
    Physique/Strength change:
    Nawala yung definition ng 4 pack abs "hack" ko haha at yung visible striations ng arms ko.
    Bigger arms, larger frame. Pants size from 32( nasusuot ko na dati jeans ng siyota ni Ermats) to 33/34.
    Overall Strength Gains: DL's from not being able to lift 300, to having 345 as a new PR. 220 squats to 250. etc.

    Not concerned much with the weight gain ATM since I'm getting stronger and I could easily lose the weight if I go too far.
