Training 3-10-12 with video
Iím feeling good today and my plan is to squat with band tension. It is difficult for me to gauge where my strength is at since I havenít taken a max lift in about 15 months and everything feels very heavy. For today training Iím going to use 50% of an estimated squat max of 700. If things get too difficult I may lower it but if they are easy Iím not going to increase it. This is my definition of a conservative plan that keeps my ego in check while still pushing forward. My training broke down like thisÖ
Treadmill, foam rolling, stretching, roller stick
Box squats Bar for a few 115 for 5 reps 155 for 3 reps 205 for 3 reps 245 for 3 reps Added 1 light band per side 245 for 2 reps Put on Ace briefs 295 for 2 reps Added 1 additional light band per side (2 bands per side, 4 bands total) 295 for 2 reps 345 for 10 sets of 2 reps
Deadlifts- conventional and raw 185 for 3 reps 225 for 3 reps 275 for 3 reps 315 for 3 reps 365 for 3 reps 405 for 3 reps
Glute ham raises Bodyweight for 3 sets of 12
Scorchers 3 sets of 8
The squats felt surprisingly good. As the sets progressed the bar movement was better and quicker. I could have easily done more but this was good quality work and a good step forward. The deadlifts went well also until the set with 405. My low back felt fine but I pulled something in my right delt/upper lat. I guess Iím just built cheap. I donít think itís going to be anything serious and there isnít any bruising or swelling but things are definitely sore.
