    :confused::confused:

    24/7 squatting surely?? :p

    Enjoy bluey - I'm well jel. Where did you get your bar and plates?

    Did order a bench myself and it just arrived, as I don't actually have kitchen chairs or anything so the sofa or squishy office chair just wasn't working for anything seated or Bulgarian split squats etc.

    Got em from blkbox! Bench is what I am missing but I'll make do


  • Registered Users Posts: 81,310 CMod ✭✭✭✭coffee_cake


    Weights arrived ahhhhh just about enough room aha haha I don't have the squat stands yet but I'd say they were a good choice there won't be room for anything else
    Did a few tester sumos
    So happy

    You got the bar and 100kg?

    Yep the bar and 100kg. A pair of 2kgs is on the way as finding 1.25 or 2.5 anywhere for non extortionate got me nowhere. Pair of collars on the way as well.
    I was thinking about your deadlift jack and you have me considering it now as well. I always use the rack to load and unload and it's a nuisance not having it

    Keep doing a few more tester sumos every time I pass the room


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,809 ✭✭✭✭Dtp1979


    The only full bar jack I could find online was 200. There’s half jack options but I’m too precious for that so I said I’d spoil myself


  • Registered Users Posts: 81,310 CMod ✭✭✭✭coffee_cake


    Okay we'll put that back on the wishlist so...

    Notions :P (In fairness you are lifting heavy enough to warrant it!)

    I’m lifting lazy enough to warrant it. Ah, when I joined my new gym and used one for the first time a few weeks ago, I fell in love.

    With the fanciness of your home set-up you will have to start offering memberships for the rest of us post-lockdown :pac::pac:

    Bluey will too by the sound of it - The OH Bluewolf Fitness Furnace :D

    You could get a mini jack for £45 or even just a wedge to about £18....if you don't just want to use the small plates as a wedge.


  • Registered Users Posts: 81,310 CMod ✭✭✭✭coffee_cake


    Ah i have like an old notebook as a wedge for the outside plates. It's the inside 20s that are a nuisance :D

    Gym 28 10 deadlifts day

    Deadlift 3 x 2+2 @ 6 rpe "fairly easy like a warm up weight" try 100kg
    Today i did sumo instead of conv. Sent my tester reps to coach and apparently they look solid with a bit less sitting back required. Also absolutely no lower back tightness with them. So might as well run with it for the moment. They were always about level with conventional

    Tempo Bench 3 x 6 floor press
    40kg??? Yes 40kg not Tempo tho
    Man I can't wait for the 2kgs plates

    Skulls 2 x 3/fail 8-15
    7.5 kgx2 2x8

    Row 3 x 3/fail 8-15
    7.5kg 3x12


    Took an hour and a quarter mostly due to faffing around with setup and camera angles. Super happy to be working hard at it.
    Coach gonna mix up the program to adapt. Can't waiiiit for squat stands


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,611 ✭✭✭✭Alf Veedersane


    That's pretty cool your sumo and conventional are pretty close.

    I don't think I gave sumo a fair crack of the whip.

    I was getting knee pain because I was allowing my right knee come in a little. It's all moot now because my hip says no but I look back at how nice it looked the day I said I'd just see where I could go with sumo and got a decent number that I didn't think I'd get.


  • Registered Users Posts: 81,310 CMod ✭✭✭✭coffee_cake

    Pffft. All ye need are push ups and pistol squats barefoot outdoors in the wind and rain and none of this fancy stuff like indoor squat racks :p:p I'm not jealous whatsoever. No.

    Second DTP - Pics must be had so I can squat vicariously through you at least :(

    Enjoy the gainz!


  • Registered Users Posts: 81,310 CMod ✭✭✭✭coffee_cake


    I'll pm some pics

    Gym 31 10 misc

    Hb Tempo squats
    60kg 3x6
    Gravity is high today. Like. Super high

    Bench
    30kg 5x11

    Sumo DLs
    Only a few like 80kg x 5. My bar loading problems have been solved as the stands have teeny safeties on them I can rest the bar on. Teeny in that I don't understand how they would actually help a fail but glad they're there to load with

    Maybe bc i ate a giant brownie before lifting and needed a sugar nap. Was planning on lunges and rows but eh.
    Glad to get work in. It's funny bc i was only saying to coach the other day hey let's program 5 days and now I'm like this is haaaard
    Yay for lockdown lifting tho

    Deadlift 3 x 2+2 @ 6 rpe

    Gym 06 11

    Squat 70kg 4x6
    Bench 3 x 3/fail 40kg
    Rows 7.5kg 3 x 8-15: didn't do
    Lunges (forward) 3 x 3/fail 30kg 3x10

    I should prob stop calling it gym... Maybe home
    Super stiff and barely parallel depth on squats today despite doing extra stretching. And still only 70kg as didnt think id be up to 80. Which is all frustrating
    Bench and lunges grand tho


  • Registered Users Posts: 81,310 CMod ✭✭✭✭coffee_cake


    Gym at home 07 11

    Tempo RDL @310
    50kg 4x6
    Chest exercise of choice
    Flyes 7.5kg x 15, 13, 12
    Triceps exercise of choice: pushdowns black band 3 x 10-20
    15, 15, 15
    Leg Extension:
    more fwd lunges 30kg 3 x 10-20
    14, 10, 13
    Leg Curls:
    banded setup
    3x 12

    Coach suggested a banded setup for the leg curls as i was at a loss. Hooked the bands around a couple adjacent door handles and it worked perfectly
    I think my quads are going to fall off from all the lunges

    He's agreed to a 5 times a week program, not sure if that's 5 days' work or 4 spread across 5. We'll see! Exciting
    I suspect tomorrow might be approaching "everything hurts and I'm dying" with all the forward lunges :pac:

    What did your body do to you that you had to punish it so bad today. Good luck sitting on the toilet mon morning, or sitting in general


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,513 ✭✭✭caviardreams


    Do share the leg curl hack please - it's only fair we all share in your DOMS :-)

    Single leg glute bridges will do a number on you.


  • Registered Users Posts: 81,310 CMod ✭✭✭✭coffee_cake


    I am happy to report zero doms
    Still laughing at dtp taking that workout so personally or something :D

    I can't describe it any better than tying the bands around two door handles, lie down, hook the heel under, leg curl
