Training Update May 19, 2012

Finally a decent week of training. My squat has been crappy for a while. I don't know if it is a mental barrier or what but I can't conjure the testicular fortitude to move past 285. I changed my squat routine to ramping up to 1 heavy set of five at the beginning and the end of the week with a light day in the middle. We'll see how it works.


Squat 285 3/2

Press 153 3x5

RDL 155 3x10

Chins BW 3x5


Squat 225 2x5

Bench Press 230 3x5

Chins BW 5/5/3/2

Glute-Ham Raise (GHR) BW 3x5


Squat 285 1x5 then a back-off set at 225 1x8

Press 155 5x3

Deadlift 335 1x5


  1. What is RDL? Nice squat. Are you noticing changes in your bod? Building muscle/losing fat?

    1. The RDL is a deadlift variation. It stands for Romanian Deadlift. It is usually done with lighter weight and starts at the top. I am working on a post the discusses the deadlift right now. I'll add a section detailing the RDL.
