    DEADLIFT Training - Mesocycle 53 Week 2

    DEADLIFT Training - Mesocycle 53 Week 2

    I think the importance given to pre workout nutrition and nutrition in general is way too overrated. In any case, I ended up eating 2 scoops of ice cream at the movies a couple of hours before the workout. Rise of the Guardians is an awesome movie. I loved it.

    Deadlift Warm-ups:
    Dynamic Warm-ups & Mobility Drills
    45 x 3
    45 x 3
    135 x 3
    135 x 3
    205 x 3
    245 x 3
    285 x 3
    325 x 3
    365 x 1
    365 x 1
    395 x 2
    425 x 1
    455 x 1
    I know 455 is awfully close to 460 (my working weight) but I thought I should do it just to make sure that 460 doesn't "shock" me.

    Deadlift SDT Progression:
    460 x 3
    460 x 3
    465 x 2
    475 x 1
    I managed to add a rep to the 465 set and I added in the 475 single. So it's Double Progression - Set and Reps

    Deadlift Back-Off Set:
    365 x 5
    What a grinder. Everything is a grinder. I'm a huge grinder.

    Pistol Squats:
    20 x 5
    20 x 5

    Want to Increase Strength without Adding Muscle?

    Article of the Day:

    Want to Increase Strength without Adding Muscle?

    Why? I've always wondered about this? Are you such an Adonis but at the same time so weak that you need to work your butt off so that you can become as strong as you look? Even pro bodybuilders are pretty darn strong compared to the average Joe. But let's just stick with the average Joe, not the pro. Let me ask again, why would you want to get strong without adding any muscle?

    I wonder this because at least once a month I see a new article explaining how to do this. Why is this concept so popular?

    Importance of Farmer's Walks

    There was a little discussion about Farmer's Walks and their benefits on my Facebook page and I thought I'd share what Eric posted out here as well.

    Article of the Day

    There are many ways of looking at linear progression but a huge misunderstanding in strength is that your training will continue to be a simple journey from point A to point B and there will always be a straight line between those points.

    This is each and every single Deadlift workout I've ever done from 2007 (when I first decided to start training for Strength) to this current week:

    FRONT SQUATS & SNATCH GRIP DEADLIFTS Training - Mesocycle 53 Week 3

    This is from Wednesday night..

    Front Squats Warm-ups:
    Dynamic Warm-ups & Mobility Drills
    45 x 3
    45 x 3
    135 x 3
    135 x 3
    205 x 3
    255 x 2

    Front Squats Work Sets:
    275 x 3
    295 x 1
    275 x 3
    275 x 3
    235 x 5
    Very cool! Added a rep to the 275 first set. Next week I will add volume and then the following week I'll be making some changes to keep things fresh. I'm still debating on what to do exactly but I'll be adding in Anderson Front Squats. I think I will warm up to 275 x whatever and do a single or double with 295 and then I will do Anderson Front Squats for 3-4 sets tops. Let's see...

    Snatch Grip Deadlifts Warm-ups:
    45 x 3
    135 x 3
    225 x 3
    275 x 3
    315 x 2

    Snatch Grip Deadlifts Work Sets:
    365 x 3
    365 x 3
    315 x 4
    Gonna add reps to all sets next week. Then I'll be rotating these out for Rack Pulls. Since I'm going to be doing 3 Weeks each of Snatch Grip Deadlifts, Rack Pulls, Deficit Deadlifts and Rack Pulls again, I'm going to change the parameters a little with the Rack Pulls. Once out of the two times I'll be cycling them I will have them heavy for doubles and triples and the other time I will keep them at 4-6 reps for 3 sets.
