Yeah thats it, I probably worded it poorly. I'll give you a look at what my week is roughly

Mon - 5/3/1 Bench, heavy rowing, medium overhead push and pull, statics
Tue - 5/3/1 Front Squat, medium dip and curl, hamstring movement, statics, optional core work
Wed - Running drills, recovery stuff
Thur - 5/3/1 Overhead Press, Heavy overhead pull, medium horizontal push and pull, statics
Fri - 5/3/1 Deadlift, single leg squat variation, multiplane push and pull, statics, optional core work
Sat - Running drills, recovery stuff, grip work if I'm in the gym.
Sun - Pretty well completely off

So I can really substitute any movements I like into the different areas, depending on the plane of movement I am doing. Its all very interchangeable, I just choose to do almost entirely bodyweight stuff.

The muscle ups look like this, quite strict, I sometimes go a lot slower, especially through the transition, trying to strengthen that up. I think once I can do these medium width MU all them time for a couple of reps I will be able to do a bar muscle up, going by the angles and shit.



BTW - Fucking awesome job on the dips, I'm so jelly.

OFF SICK.
Actually felt alright the night before, but come Wednesday morning it wasn't happening.

Light skipping is all. Ankle is a little better, hopefully should be running (albeit not very far) in the next month.

FRIDAY 8th JUNE 2012

BW x10
20kg 3x8
- Bench Press

Easy day today, getting back into to it. Light weight only. Best news is that I got a few squats done at the end with just the bar, will start squatting again next week. Not heavy, won't go over 100kg for now.

Had a little go at weighted dips after being inspired by your impressive performance. Anyway I still have to doth my cap to you sir, as I thought I would. I worked up to 60% BW (or is that 1.6 or BW + 60%, not good at this). Better than I thought but really gives you an idea of how hard something like that is. Once again, well done.

I'm with you on the triceps sort of, mine ache today but it's different to bench. My chest is a different story, feel like someones been carving fillets from it, saw as a mother fucker. I tend to favour a closer grip on the bench press otherwise my shoulder moan at me (could just be paranoia) so I use a lot of triceps. Have you tried reverse band bench press? Now that's a triceps builder.

Thanks for the compliment. Being heavy isn't a reason not to do dips or chin ups, it's an excuse. My brother is lighter than me and sucks at both, he tells me it's because he's too heavy, I tell him it's because he's too weak. A little harsh but he's my brother, I'm meant to give him stick. Actually I'm a little on the light side right now, 100kg bang on. Think it's a bit to disparate to simply compare the total weight, best left as a percentage of bodyweight I feel.

That said I think I'm most jealous about how you can play music out loud and I can't! Before every lift I have to rearrange my headphones, and they're becoming quite crinkled due to the heavy dips and pull-ups. Plus they sometime pop out in the middle of a set. Luckily this pisses me off enough to help finish the set!

Also I want to eat kangaroo.


Hah, I guess you just need to find a gym you can control the music at somehow. I need to download more songs cause I always listen to the same stuff, but it is crap wearing headphones or listening to the radio. Plus I tend to sing out loud with headphones on and it is embarrassing if I don't catch myself.

Calisthenics as usual. Plenty of muscle-ups and some tuck back lever work. PR of 5 straight bar muscle-ups.

SUNDAY 10th JUNE
REST

Looking to start 531 next week. This week I'll continue as per usual, maybe get an idea of what weight to use when I start next week.
