Re: BEERJEW FT. TERRYb
Time for a Deload, then another month of volume, followed by an intensity block, leading to this years first peak (circa. start of April).
I've looked back through my log, which nicely maps out the last 30 days of training. Calculating the total volume of the main moves only (and any derivatives, i.e. deficits, pause squats, cgbp) shows I did a total of 214,000 lbs of volume. For this next volume cycle, I'll aim to increase the average intensity (last cycle hovered around 6575% for the most part, this cycle I'll be fluctuating between 7585% for squat and bench, and 7080% for deadlift) and increase the overall volume by approx. 6%, to circa. 227k lbs
Overall, that looks something like;
The idea is to start with pretty manageable volume, manipulate it inweek, and build up to a point at the end of the four weeks where I can't sustain that volume any longer. Followed by a Deload, and a four week peak.
I'm considering which assistance to include  To be honest I think the volume is sufficiently high that I don't need much assistance in there, but some hypertrophy on the arms, lats, rear delts and a little cardio/core work wouldn't go amiss.

Re: BEERJEW FT. TERRYb
Lol.
I'm considering letting my training go in another direction for a bit. Train other big lifts, supporting lifts, and minimum of the competition lifts. Build some bigger musculature, lean up a bit and give my joints a break from the big lifts.
Maybe some overhead pressing, incline benching, hack squats, barbell rows, SLDL and lots of machines.
My joints feel very beat up, and despite my denial my recovery simply can't keep up with the volume I like to do on the main lifts at the moment.

Sorry for cutting in with another stupid question: do I understand it correctly that the rep is paused at both the bottom and the top?Beer Jew wrote:Bench (all reps paused):
Re: BEERJEW FT. TERRYb
I would say that I pause all my reps at the top regardless of whether it's touch and go or paused on the chest  I personally find it helps me stabilise for the next rep, set up properly etc. When I note that the reps are paused however, I mean on the chest, and usually for a count of 12 seconds.Sangoma wrote:Sorry for cutting in with another stupid question: do I understand it correctly that the rep is paused at both the bottom and the top?Beer Jew wrote:Bench (all reps paused):

Re: BEERJEW FT. TERRYb
Thanks! That's very interesting to me. I've just started to lift. I'm a few inches taller than you, but I'm in the same weight range: been between 205# and 220# in the last 34 months. And my 3lift total is less than your squat number. It's eyeopening to see that lifting totals like the ones you posted, are possible at this weight range.
