Member 4618, 93 posts SQ 205, BP 147.5, DL 265617.5 kgs @ 105kgs UnEq | I'm following Wendler's 5/3/1 buddy, I've never followed any proper structure such as this so I'm hoping it will yield some good gains. Today my planned workout was: Press: 62.5kg x 5 70kg x 3 80kg x 1+ 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 Assistance lift: Chins: +12.5kg x 8 +12.5kg x 8 +12.5kg x 8 My actual workout was: Press: 62.5kg x 5 70kg x 3 80kg x 5 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 Assistance lift: Chins: +12.5kg x 8 +12.5kg x 8 +20kg x 6 Session review Very good session, I was hoping for 4 on 80kg press. The final rep was a real grinder though, new rep PB for this. | ||

I think if really pushed I could have done another rep, but then I'd have really struggled with the high rep sets that followed. | ||

On first impressions this routine seems to be working for me. | ||

It seems my legs are still getting used to the higher rep sets. Hopefully the next cycle there will be a marked improvement. | ||

Member 4618, 93 posts SQ 205, BP 147.5, DL 265617.5 kgs @ 105kgs UnEq | I was feeling fresh after the first cycle so decided against a deload week. I will listen to my body and give myself a deload week when I feel it will aid my lifting. Today my planned workout was: Press: 65kg x 5 67.5kg x 5 72.5kg x 5+ 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 Assistance lift: Chins: +20kg x 8 +20kg x 8 +20kg x 8 My actual workout was: Press: 65kg x 5 67.5kg x 5 72.5kg x 8 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 42.5kg x 10 Assistance lift: Barbell rows 100kg x 6 110kg x 6 120kg x 6 125kg x 6 100kg x 8 Session review I almost got 9 reps on the shoulder press, ended up doing rows as the gym was heaving and the chinning bar located by the cable machines were too busy. Rows felt good, the heaviest set of rows was a struggle on the final rep. | ||
