Mid shin rackpulls: Back off sets 3x4x155 kg after 4 at rpe 7, 8, 9 . I am sure I am not the only one who find the rackpulls/block pulls from mid shin as hard as normal DL. It is so much more harder to set the back. Maybe those with #startingstrength 5 step set up background find it harder as it is the position where the leg extension ends and hip extension starts. Or, Maybe I just need to train more. 
Second video is RDL, 110 X  10 @ RPE 9

CGBP not recorded

Day 38 of #linearprogression (1st half)
squats : 415x5x3
.
I was not able to do anything past squats tonight. My arms were hurting pretty badly at my elbow up through my biceps and at the base of my triceps. I will finish the remainder of the workout tomorrow.  You can tell that the pain I was experiencing really effected my form and movement, it got in my head and I lost focus. Time to rest up and hopefully figure this out. #imtoooldforthis or is it #imtooyoungforthis  haha either way I feel like I’m falling apart sometimes. 😆 just put more muscle around it to hold it together 👍
.
Has anyone else out there experienced this type of pain before during squats? Any advice or suggestions?

And I mean this quite literally. Strong arches and flexible feet are *THE*  foundation for every lift and exercise. Knees cave in during squats? Got the wiggles during deadlifts? Arch pain with snatches and overhead presses? Check your feet brochachos. Having either extreme of high arches (read rigid) or flat feet (read unstable) will hurt your lifts. The simple answer is to stretch the rigid foot and strengthen the unstable foot. The complicated answer is do to both in different ways.

I can only take my life coaching and yoga clients as far as I have gone. 
So I set out on a mission to change my body composition and will not look back
.
I worked with my amazing friend Jason (@jcrcoaching) for five weeks:
Powerlifting three days a week.
No cardio. 
Minimal yoga.
Watching macros.
.
Mentally, lifting heavy is the most challenging thing I’ve recently experienced.
.
Poor Jason beautifully (and sternly) navigated the days when my “eyes were sweating” (...crying) when I didn’t move the weight that I wanted. .
He sees my blindspot: I am strong. Really strong. .
When the weight gets heavier and heavier old stories with the flavor of “you are not capable” come up and subconsciously defeat me.
.
How INCREDIBLE that all of this data comes up during this physical practice. 
And every time I can choose to show up for myself knowing it’s okay if I FAIL or not bother and BAIL on my Self.
.
This is JUST the beginning of my journey. I’m hungry for more. Here’s to being a calm badass.

When you pause deadlift 255 kg more than you squat.

Been working on some technical changes to my deadlift and I'm now finally starting to feel at peace with how it looks.

6 weeks out and I haven't squatted in nearly 2 months lol.

“I’m not built to deadlift”
Get the fuck out of here with that shit.

Nothing special here. 320# bench press for a single rep before dropping down and doing my volume work. This is right around my 3RM right now. The weight moved a little slower than I would have liked, but my elbows weren't in proper alignment to the bar. I need to bring the elbows forward a little more.

9 Months! 188 lbs -> 230 lbs -> 208 lbs
.
The intricacies of everyone’s strength journey are unique. Some guys want to bulk for years on end. Some want increased strength with minimal size. And some have other goals entirely.
.
Chris’ training during his first year at Goldfish followed a popular template- drive linear progression and gain a bunch of weight during the fall, winter, and spring. And then cut down for summer while maintaining as much strength as possible.
.
For a larger size guy, gaining 40 lbs of bodyweight in 6 months isn’t very difficult, you just need to know how to eat and train optimally. Chris’ results came from 2 days per week barbell training with 1 day per week of GPP using mostly dumbbells. Cardio was utilized during his cut. Simple things done meticulously. #startingstrength.

I haven’t done squat and bench in two weeks. When you train only twice a week, missing a day can really throw you off. With that said, I’m surprised today went ok 👌 
Squat 190 5x3

Chins +40 5x3 (1st&5th set)

Does anyone remember BOOKS? They were once a thing 😂 Maybe I’m a little old school, but when I find myself needing a very informed refresher on good solid lifting technique I pick up my very worn copy of Starting Strength. At the moment I’m trying to see what lifts might work with this broken foot (giving it a rest from my Aircast while I’m drinking my coffee). I attempted my first in-cast leg day the other day and I’m soooo happy I’m SORE!!! Yay!! The weights I worked with were light af but it’s a start. I was never so happy to wake up to sore quads 😍😍😍 So time to create a plan that will work around my foot/ankle being restricted to a 90 degree angle while trying to keep my muscles worked in a symmetrical way. I can do this lol 💪.

PRS low back rehab going well for in-person client @jasondonders! #Repost @jasondonders with @get_repost
・・・
2” Block Pulls: 345x5x3 sets (first shown)
Press: 125x5x5 sets

This was the main work from last night’s workout. And while the deadlifts weren’t as “tempo” as I would’ve liked, the speed was still very controlled and allowed me to maintain good setup. Really excited about this progress with my lower back - and although I’ve been waking up a little sore, no pain is progress.

Progress is progress. Slowly building volume too ———————————————————————— Squat 345@7.5, 275x5x3 Bench 265@8, 215x5x2, 215x4x2
2” Block Pulls: 345x5x3 sets (first shown)
Press: 125x5x5 sets

This was the main work from last night’s workout. And while the deadlifts weren’t as “tempo” as I would’ve liked, the speed was still very controlled and allowed me to maintain good setup. Really excited about this progress with my lower back - and although I’ve been waking up a little sore, no pain is progress.

First time bench with 47.5kg @ 3x5.
The second set was better than this one... #benchpress #gym #startingstrength #weightlifting #weights
The deadlift builds strength in the muscles that hold the vertebral column stable when under load; and it does this better than any other exercise! For this reason the deadlift should be the primary exercise for people who need to develop a strong back… and that is you!
•
Lower back, and torso strength is essential in every day life and in sports performance. Being able to hold the spine in position under load is critical for a pain free back and power transfer from one part of the body to another which is crucial, not only in sports, but in carrying out every day tasks.
•
Unfortunately many people avoid it believing it to be dangerous and of little value to anyone other than bodybuilders and strongmen.
•
This notion is out-and-out wrong! Only a wrongly performed, heavy, deadlift is dangerous. A correctly performed suitably weighted deadlift has many far reaching health benefits, including but not limited to; increased lean body mass, reduced lower back pain, increased bone density, increased mobility, improved metabolic function and finally it is a truly “functional” exercise, having carry over as an assistance exercise in the squat and olympic lifts.

I told a weightlifting mentor that I thought I might wear too many bright colors for the UFC  Gym. He said, "They'll get used to the Pink after you start showing up on a regular basis." So I went tonight and wore this. 😂😂😂

If your workouts are absolutely killing you, to the point that you have anxiety and you begin devising ways you can get out of your next session, you are simply doing too much. 
While there is no doubt that breaking out of your comfort zone is necessary in being successful with any physical endeavour or lifestyle change, it’s important to look at the big picture. 
Train in a way that you can see yourself continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Physical improvement comes by accumulating repeated bouts of good, solid training over a long period of time, rather than exerting near death efforts once a month.

Think about it in terms of learning any skill, or a language perhaps. Is it more effective to spend one day every so often drilling yourself to exhaustion, or frequently distributing your practice into manageable chunks?

In reverse. Finished the day with some hypertrophy lol. 1. Close grip incline press (That look when you realise this is not rpe 9 and I might have to do two more sets, but then nahh) 2. Bench with bands 3. Beltless squat 4. Added a 1.5 kg with collars to get another Beltless PR at 136.5 but the last two reps were high. Also I am not feeling too good about the squat in this block. I have always been hyper responsive to squat training but not too happy. Form also seem to be deteriorating. Wrong stressors perhaps. Will see how it goes as we progress. #startingstrength #barbellmedicine

285x4x3, 275x2. Had to delete the video of the first set because a lady in booty shorts didn’t see the phone (I hope) and this is not that kind of IG account. So here’s the second set.

For comp lifts, I worked up to a top single at RPE 8 followed by a set of 5 at RPE 7. I keep accessory lifts to 2 sets at RPE 8 and 3-4 sets in isolation stuff for dat dere pump.

Where the magic happens (or at least is in the process of happening). Didn't record today's workout due to time constraints. 
Squat 3x5 - 205 
Bench 3x5 - 135
Deadlift 1x5 - 250

Slow and steady. Progress being made.

Preparing for squat max with some medium hard singles.⠀

I’m oncall this week so it’s been fixing bugs and making sure the world doesn’t explode. Next week I’ll work on my presentation for a giant 12,000 person conference in November. I hope it works.
