Not much time to log workouts. Got through the first Coan workout. Surprisingly it kicked my ass. I gotta get it together! Did shoulders yesterday.

Heres an ok example. I tend to go much lower though, which changes the movement a bit. I should try to keep the ROM shorter and see if it helps.

Thanks man!

Made it through week 2 of my Coan program. Felt really good. Took on my old form in the DL which felt great (more of a SLDL).

Did my other stuff too. No time to log it though. Classes and work are rough right now.

Sunday - Deads (Coan program week 3)

DL
1x5x225
1x2x315
1x2x405
1x2x475
1x2x525 Smooth and easy
6x3x430 Felt like 225 after the 525 reps

SLDL
3x8x225

GM's
2x8x225

BB Rows
2x8x225

Sup Grip Pulldowns
2x8x250

Surprisingly, I didn't gas out at all and using 225 felt much better than going 315-405. 50-60% of max weight on accessory exercises seems about right. Program doesnt really specify this, but it feels good to me.

Sunday - Strongman Day!!! (kind of)

1st - Picked up a 400lb shield but did not walk with it to spare my knees. Picked it up very easily though.
2nd - Some log press up to 250lbs for some double and triples. Wasn't that into it.
3rd - 4 picks with 600 and 2 with 900 on the yoke. Again, saving my knees.
4th - 2, 60' trips with 265lb/hand farmers. Very light, but very easy on the joints.
5th - 270 and 310 stones. Almost passed out on these so I stopped.

Well that showed me just where I am at. My overhead has been sacrificed for my bench a bit. My grip is still pretty strong. I could walk with a 900lb yoke if I wanted to tear my knees apart. My DL is strong and fast. And I need to practice more exercises that take my wind away (like stones, front carry, and even log a bit...) Definitely could have done much more but I would be out for a week or two, so I am fine with this.

Tuesday - Chest

Incline Bench
2x10x135
1x6x225
2x10x250
1x8x225

Flat DB Bench
2x12x115's

Pushdowns
2x10xstack

JM Presses
2x10x135

Alt DB Curls (perfect form)
1x10x45's
1x10x55's

Pec Fly Machine
2x12xstack

Felt like decent work. I think I could have gotten 275x10 for my first set but I wanted to be able to get at least two 'heavy', high rep sets in.

*A note on diet: I am still in the 285lb area but I have stopped with heavy calorie restriction. I think it has really been affecting my studies negatively. When I am hungry, I am unfocused. I am still eating clean but just more and not always at the right time. This semester is a killer and I must do whatever it takes to get through.

**I should mention that I always use different grips for each set on any bench exercise. My norm is to stay just inside shoulder width and I am trying to work my hands out farther and farther. The widest I go is index on the rings and even that feels strange to me.

1x3x315
1x2x405

Took a while today. I tried something different too; I did 8 'reps' of bent over row/sldl/shrug with 225lbs. What that equated to was incredible cramping of my traps!!! Really burned up my upper back and had me sweating. Worth a try if you ever find yourself wanting to change it up.

Been so busy I forgot to log things. I did a bunch of cardio and a shoulder day between sunday and today, no big deal.


Friday - Deadlift (Coan week 7)

Warmup with 135 and 225 on squats, dl's, and GM's.

DL
1x5x225
1x3x315
1x2x405
1x2x475
1x2x525
1x2x555
3x3x430 DAMNIT I was supposed to do 460! Angry Went semi-heavy on SLDLs to make up.

SLDL/Shrug at top
2x5x405

GM's
2x5x315

Pulldowns (subbed for BB rows because my lats feel week)
2x5x300

Standing Crunch on Pulldown tower
2x10x190

Also did a bunch of oblique stuff with bands. That felt really good actually.

I have been making a real effort to NEVER do any touch and go reps and it has paid off really well, but these octagonal plates are really hard to do so with (almost effed my back up a few times). I am really excited to see if I can hit my goal! Only 3 weeks left. Next week may or may not be a PR if I get it, cant remember? Oh well, I will do plenty of recovery work so I am at my best.

Its all leverage. My big ginormous glutes counterbalance the weight. Without them I may only hit 275. Embarrassed

Sunday - STRONGMAN! (I needed this)

Kept it light.....still taking it 'easy'. No need to blow out my knee or back.

One arm Oly bar Snatch
8-10 each arm w/ 100lbs
8-10 each arm w/ 120lbs

High Stones on the ring
2x1x270 to 66"
2x1x310 to 60" I nearly blacked out on EVERY rep. Apparently I was rolling it on my neck and choking myself out. Grin

Yoke
4x60'x660lbs

That was it. Messed around with some other stuff. Didn't pull out a belt or anything once today and it all felt light. It WAS light but it was as easy as ever. Thats all I can ask right now.

The last week was totally screwed. Cant remember what I did at all. I was moving for days and then helped someone with an event they were putting on and never got around to full workouts. I have been sick as all hell for the last couple days but today I decided to just push through it....

Thursday - Deadlift (Coan week 8 )

Warmup with 135/225 on GM's, squats, and SLDL's.

DL

1x3x315
1x2x405
1x2x495
1x2x545
1x1.684357x585 UHG! Lost form on the second rep and bailed. Angry
3x3x425

SLDL
2x5x405

GM's
2x5x315 used belt here

Shrugs on HS Shrug Machine
2x6x630

DB Rows

I found a 24 Hour Fitness with ROUND PLATES and 140LB DUMBBELLS!!!! Its like 5 mins from my new place.

I have not lifted with real plates in I dont know how long. It felt GREAT! No strange liftoffs, perfect placement, and all around much better lifting.

Happy with tonight especially with my head floating with OTC meds.  Smiley

seems close enough to 2 that you could round it off.

i can not wait to move in the new year and look for a new gym so i can work out with real weights and not the play things the Y has.

It actually make a lot more difference than I thought it would to have round plates. The confidence that it will not roll away as you pull is enough to bring up your lifts.

If you say I can round it up, it shall be done. Why not make it 5 reps while Im at it?
