Getting caught up..

This is last Wednesday’s Squat/DL assistance work

Lat pull-down: 3×10
McGill Chin: 12 singles
2-arm DB row: 3×10
DB shrug: 3×10
One leg GM: 3×10
Goblet squat: 5×5
Different plank variations…

Great training session. It was done alone but luckily on this day, it’s pretty much just assistance work which doesn’t require a spot or handlers. All of this work felt really good and I got it done in about an hours flat.

Our belt squat is now up and running again, so my piston belt-squats will be added back into this day and I’ll be going back to belt squats as my main movement on squat day for a little longer through this offseason cycle.

Really enjoying training right now. It’s not perfect and I’m traveling a lot but the quality of work is very high and I’m getting back into my groove, which feels very good.

I highly suggest anyone in a rut take a break for a little bit and come back after you start to miss it.

Friday’s Fluff and Buff

After the 6hr drive down to Battle Axe Gym in Miami for the seminar last weekend, Ria and I got a quick fluff and buff session in before eating some food and hanging out with Mike and Megan.

Very quickly done:

Normal warm-up…

Band fly: 3×15
Band press-down: 3×15
Side laterals: 3×10
FatBell OHP: 3×10 – really liked these, never used them before. Nice Donnie.
DB press: 5×10
Rolling planks
Hammer curl

I already wrote about the weekend’s seminar but it was one of my favorite ones. Thanks again to all who supported and made it a great weekend!
