Day 50. non linear split
Heavy bench. 03/30/2010

Bench press
176x5
187x3
203.5x1 (PR)

Incline Bench
121x7 (PR)
121x6
121x4

Dips
BW+11 x 7
BWx7x2

I finally broke the 200 mark for bench press today. It was a horrible rep, sloppy, slow and did not feel good at all. Next time round i really need to concentrate on form more rather than going into autopilot. I lost the tightness in my lats on the eccentric and as such bounced the weight rather than doing touch and go. Inline felt strong today, i beat my previous on this weight by 2 reps, probably due to the adrenaline rush of hitting a PR. Dips were ok, still getting back into these. Squats on thurs, cant wait.

Excellent job with the 308 deadlift the other day. And hey, a PR on the bench is still a PR. You continue to get stronger all the time.

Day 52. non inear split
Heavy Squat. 04/01/2010

Squats
242x5 (PR)
242x4
231x4

SLDL
132x8x3

Occluded standing calf raises
45x30
45x18
45x15
45x11
45x11

Nice workout today, squats were heavy and i just got a PR for 5 reps. My knees were hurting a bit on the bottom position so i'll have to keep an eye on them as ive suffered with quadriceps tendonitis in the past after squatting frequently.
SLDL's felt ok, just getting used to the motor pattern with these before increasing the weight. Calves hurt like hell.

Day 54. non linear split
Deadlift. 04/03/2010

Deadlift
176x6
220x7
242x6
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6OABvf5Bjo

Skipped my shoulders workout as they already got worked on the day digging up my front garden and laying a driveway. I've never had DOMS in my shoulder but i have now!
Deads felt good today, i went light and worked on form. Things feel much better now and im getting used to the change in motor pattern after ironing out previous errors in the lift. I'm glad ive took things easy the past few days as ive been very tired and worn out from work. Tomorrow im ready to hit the new cycle hard.

Day 56.
Every single gym within 5 miles is closed.

Home BWeight - chest, tri's workout

Wide pressups
BWx15
BWx13
BWx13 + 33 second static hold at the end

Diamond pressups
BWx8
BWx7
BWx5

Behind back dips
15, 15, 12

15 minutes of stretching and flexing both pecs and tri's

This actually felt really good today, made a welcome change from lifting heavy weights. i got an insane pump from the flexing and stretching after the workout and i also included a really deep fascia stretch for chest at the end by leaning between a doorway. Its obviously not the same stimulus i'll get from lifting but it was better than sitting around playing COD all day.
Squats tomorrow, bring it on!

Day 57. non linear split
Squat hypertrophy. 04/06/2010

Squats
88x5x2
132x6

end of story

Leg extentions
90x8x3

Leg curls
60x9
50x12
50x11

Standing calf raises
135x17 drop to 90x7
135x14 drop to 90x4
120x13 drop to 75x4 drop to 60x5

I couldnt squat today, my knee was really hurting in the bottom position and shortly after stopping half way through my warmups, as listed above it began to swell.
Leg extentions felt ok except i couldnt full peak the contraction as that added to the pain in my knee. calves felt ok, ive decided to cycle between occlusion and drop sets for calves to try and add some definition and work with heavier weight from time to time.
Tomorrow - day off and visit to the doctors to see what is wrong. ive got a feeling it is quadricep tendonitis and general overworking of the whole knee joint as this knee has always been weak since having Osgood-Schlatter disease as a teenager and tearing my ACL in the same knee 18 months ago.

At least i might be able to over take you in squats...
bear that in mind, it might speed up recovery time

But in all seriousness i'm sorry to hear that as you were making some killer progress, i hope it's nothing too serious. What was that disease you had when you were a teenager?

Osgood-Schlatter disease, it is swelling of the patella ligament attaching the kneecap to the tibia. hurt like hell and as a result i have a small bump of bone where the ligament attaches, just randomly grew, i'll post a pic later after work. it wasnt serious but just annoying as sports activity hurt like mad. they claim no further complications once you stop growing but ive always suffered pain in that knee especially over the winter months and after playing football or doing any sports. Being a bowler at cricket didnt help. Ive been the docs and i have quadricep tendonitis, ive been told to lay off squatting for a few weeks and to do leg curls and extentions but very light to maintain strength. i spoke to my doc about occlusion training for legs in the meantime and i got a very funny look! Had a good dicussion about it actually and they have told me to be extremely careful if i use it during recovery.
